    i think most custom launchers have the option mate.
    i use Go Launcher, its free and you can hide/show the status bar and/or dock with gestures.
    theres better launchers than Go but think youl have to pay to get that feature.
    maybe not on free Apex launcher?
    it makes homescreen look SO much hotter.
    it only hides it on homescreen btw, not on apps that usualy have it shown

    Yeah I think the only way is to use a launcher

    Third party launchers such as Apex and Nova allow you to do this. As funky mentioned, it only works on homescreen, and not in other apps. Hope this helps!

    yeah but i like the native launcher in the s3. i dont like other launchers.. they look nerdy.. what i dont understand is that the iphone can be easily customized, and so this isnt an issue for it. but why on android which has been touted to be better than the iphone, especially with customization, cant the same thing be done?? this makes no sense.

    umm youre not makin sense lol. its very customisable by using apps+widgets.
    launchers can be made to look however u want.. have you seen the homescreens thread in "stickies"
    think u chose the wrong phone though tbh

    If they look nerdy, it's because you made them that way. Nova launcher will copy your TW homescreen setup exactly the way you had when you first start it. From there you are able to make far more changes to the apearence of your homescreens including hiding the notification bar.

    So much ignorance going on in your last two replies. Haha. I don't even find them worth pointing out because they are so obviously wrong

    Wow the only thing the iphone is apparently easier to customize than an android ( even though there is a option to do it in android ) and you are baffled. Trying customizing the other 99% of the stuff that android can do on a jail broken iphone and see what happens..... oh wait, you can't.

    I am pretty sure that with some launchers you can also get rid of the status bar on the lockscreen...I could be confused that it is a ROM option though

    Dude, you are so far past having issues, you have whole subscriptions.

    You get an honest answer then attack the guy who gives it to you?

    Go over the xda with that attitude, you would fit right in, we are about helping people over here, not being a twit

    i agree.. and let this be a warning to all the trolls.. if you come to a thread youre expected to be respectful.. many times ppl come to a thread and post insults and it creates chaos. then the op gets mad and has no choice but to defend himself by attacking the trolling attackers or report to a mod.. a mod comes in, closes the thread and/or bans both the trolls and the op who's the victim standing up for himself. then the mod jeopardizes his job as a mod cuz the op reports him for being unfair. so in all, everyone loses. and i'm the type that if you poke me intentionally, i'll deck you.. it doesnt mean i'm a bad guy, its just who i am.. seriously, respect if you want to be respected... real talk.

    Really? Your the one to post that? I am pretty sure it was your posts that got deleted. But that is fine. Live where you are.

    Moving on, with the newest version of LiquidSmooth it is an option to hide the status bar everywhere, both the lockscreen and the homescreen. Just an FYI

    Well to answer your question...you should try out one of the launchers...you can leave them how they are, and it can look exactly like the stock Touchwiz but with more features. You never know you might like the launchers and take advantage of the customization...I suggest Nova Launcher, its what I use and its the best

    FYI, iPhone cant do that without jailbreaking it, and iPhone is a static boring phone, you cant really do much with it unless you jailbreak. Android is definitely much more customizable, just take a look at the different homescreens people have created
