    Default Galaxy S3: Phone shutting off by itself

    My Samsung Galaxy S3 has just recently shutting itself off all by itself. This has happened twice in the past 3 days. I have to
    actually take the battery out and reinsert it, and it comes on fine. I've only had this phone since August of 2013.
    Anyone know of what may be causing this issue? Thank you

    Might just be the battery. Seems to be a pretty common issue. Call Samsung or your carrier and ask for a replacement

    Hello, I noticed you had also posted on the 3rd about your phone getting hot, teamed up with this problem I agree that it is probably a battery issue. But it could also be software related. What the other commenter on your "back getting hot" post said about the service signal is definitely one option. I would just advise you to download an app called ThermoCF. It keeps an eye on your battery temperature. If it exceeds 113F I would definitely take it into a US Cellular store and have someone look at it, most preferably a technician.
    Good luck!

    Could you provide a link? I can't find an app by that name in the Google Play Store.

    I'm pretty sure GSam keeps track of the temperature too. I couldn't find ThermoCF either
