    Default Screen turns on Mommetarily

    When the screen is off my S3 screen turns on for maybe a second or less every once in a while. I think this has only been happening recently and could possibly linked to JB upgrade or maybe an app that I have installed.

    Anyone have a resolution?

    Is it on the charger? It could be an issue with the cable. Also, if you use an app like Lightflow, depending on the settings the app will try to control your screen like its an LED. I had that problem with my G Nex when I first got it last December.

    Good suggestions but my S3 is a stock Verizon phone and I do not have Lightflow installed and the flickering on is not when I have it being charged. I do not know if it happens when I am charging since I really only charge at night when I am sleeping.

    Ive noticed the same thing with my phone, same phone as yours, except on Sprint. Not plugged in and nothing running in background. Id have it sitting on the table and the screen would light up for a couple seconds, at first I thought a call or text was coiming through, but nothing. Does it once in awhile and has happended more than once. Did notice it happened after JB update. Doesnt seem to harm anything, just got annoying when id grab my phone thinking a call was coming in and none was.

    I noticed last night that I did have the flicker on even when connected for charging.

    My wife has the same phone as mine (same JB update) and does not have the issue, so maybe it is an app. Do you have Foldersync installed and if do you have it set to autosync?
