    Default Samsung Galaxy S3 lockscreen glitch?

    Hi, so this has happened on numerous times on my Galaxy S3 on my lockscreen and it's very frustrating. I tried rotating the screen etc but the only solution is the restart my phone but it takes too long. Is there a quicker fix to this? I've tried many combinations of buttons as well. While in this screen, I cannot press my password to get into my phone so I have to restart it

    try changing your lock from pin to pattern and then back to pin again. worth a shot.

    I'm having same issue throughout the day when using a PIN. Don't know of permanent fix but quickest way for me to get past this was to go to Emergency Call, rotate screen to landscape, and once i back out of there, lock screen is back to normal.

    Is this happening with the Stock ROM?

    Wow, I can't believe that didn't come up in testing. Do you do anything crazy with your phone? Or, just make phone calls, text message and web browsing?

    No, mainly email; some texting,browsing. Doesn't happen every time but happens daily. I've noticed it's more likely to happen when I let the screen time out on its own rather than pressing power. I was just in gmail inbox (in portrait mode), have phone set to 1 minute of inactivity and when I went to turn it on, I got that same screen OP posted. Tried to repeat it and got normal screen.

    Wow, that's really weird. Well, thanks for posting your workaround. It's better than no solution, that's for sure.

    I have the same issues, and I use the pattern lock.....the emergency- call landscape deal works, but it seems as though this is not an isolated issue and needs to be looked into......I have the factory ROM as well

    It might behoove you guys to shoot Samsung an email. If they aren't aware of this now, it would let them know. And, the more people that express their concern, the more likely it is to get fixed quickly.
