    I'm having some issues with my 7 month old Galaxy S3. For the past month or so, every so often my messages (sms) folder in the home page will go empty when I click on it. Or, I will be typing an sms and when I press send the entire message history will be gone and then the phone will freeze and when I restart all my messages will appear back in the folder. This is a concern because I am not sure if my messages are going through when that happens or if I'm receiving messages. Also today all morning I received no text messages or calls and then all of a sudden at noon I get flooded with several text messages and voicemails and seeing the time on those messages means I was not receiving them when they were sent to me. And I didn't receive a single missed call but then I had 3 voicemails from various times in the morning. Not sure why this is happening! Some help would be really apprecaited!

    Might be an issue with the cache/data in your messaging app. Try clearing it. You won't lose your old messages but it will restore the app to its default settings and clear any buggy stuff that could have arisen in the last 7 months

    Try this: Clear the cache for your messaging app, then force stop the app, then restart the app. Let us know what happens.

    Did you make any changes to the phone before this happened, such as trying to root it or flashing a ROM? Is the battery charged? What happens when you press the power button and hold it down for 5 seconds, then let go. Do any lights light up at all?

    Plug the phone into a charger. Does the LED come on? Let it charge for an hour, and see what happens. If it's still not working, take the battery out for several minutes, put it back in and see if it will power up.

    If none of that works, try to boot into recovery: press (all at the same time) and hold the volume UP, home and power buttons. If the screen comes on, wait until you see the Samsung logo, then release all three buttons at once. You can use the volume buttons to select an option, and then the power button to execute. At this point, I would just choose the reboot option.

    Let us know what happens

    How long did you leave the battery out? You should leave it out a few minutes.
    When you plug the phone in, do any lights come on?
    Have you tried a different charger/cable?
    Know anyone else with an S3?

    This could be an ID issue. If all the above e suggestions fail, I would rest the phone to factory settings to see if that fix the problem.

    Hi I am having problems with the screen brightness on my galaxy s3, it just became really bright and contrasty today and I cant alter it no matter what I try.
    I have switched off the auto brightness and turned the level right down but that hasn't made any difference at all.
    Any ideas?
