I don't believe that there is any cause for alarm. I turn mine off each night to charge my phone. I also have a charger in the office where it charges when not in the holster. I also have a car charger to charge whenever I am in the car. The I have done this with all my smartphones.

Most modern battery charging does not continue charging when the battery is full. I assume that is the case with the S3.
My evidence is that when I unplug my phone from the charger in the morning, it usually drops immediately to 98 or 99%, which is where I assume it stopped charging.

i recalibrated my s3's battery indicator as i realised that when it was showing 100%, it took an extra 20mins to be actualy fully charged. cant remember what app i used but if you search "battery calibration" or something u should find one. "over-charging" only damages the environment

So far, i have not heard anybody actually representing any cell phone companys.
We have not heard of anybody representing any battery companies at all.
I have been to 2 Cell Phone providers in my area, and both have told me that the Samsung
Cellphones are *NOT* smart chargers.
Remember, companys often 'Out Source' other companies to make/design their equipment

It's not the charger that's smart, it's the phone which regulates the charge. If the battery were getting overcharged, it would get very hot just sitting there once the charger hits 100%. Have you noticed that happening?
But if it makes you feel better, there's certainly no harm in unplugging the phone when it reaches 100%.PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. Otherwise, it's like calling your doctor and saying "My head hurts." Your doctor can't treat you unless he knows whether you have a headache or a concussion, and we can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they occurred.
