    Ok my s3 has been pretty good to me overall but I'm having some major problems with it right now.. I'm not rooted at all. Just running apex launcher... . My phone is deleting my playlist. Running very slow. And I can't take apps off of my home screens anymore and Freezes up when I open things.... What could be causing this?

    Have you installed any new software in the recent past? If so, try uninstalling them and see what happens. I'd also try booting into recovery and clearing the phone's cache. And it couldn't hurt to go to Settings / Application manager, tap menu, then Reset app preferences.

    Turn the phone off.

    Hold volume up, power, and home until it vibrates. After it vibrates let go of the power button and keep holding volume up and home. Then u should get into recovery.

    Actually, if you release the buttons as soon as the phone vibrates, that may be too soon. If the phone boots normally, try again (make sure you power down, first), then hold all three buttons until you see the Samsung logo, and release all three buttons.
