    Was googling something, and screen turned off as usual after 10 secs of no activity, when I clicked it back on the pin entry screen appeared. Have never seen this before and didn't know how to even set a pin for it, so consequently I can't unlock it. Any ideas how to unlock it?

    Welcome to Android Central! That's unusual. Is this your phone, or are you borrowing or sharing with someone else?

    No, it's my phone. Can't see how I could have set it to use a pin without knowing & was using it a minute before it locked.

    That's unusual. Maybe you have malware on your phone...

    Does it look like the usual PIN screen lock, or does it look completely different? Compare it with a friend's S3 if you can.

    Does it say "SIM Network Unlock PIN"?
