    I'm new to this phone and Android in general. My S3 randomly restarts 2 or 3 times a day, everyday. I bought this phone at the Walmart wireless store and am now 2 days outside of the 14 day trial period. Is this a common problem with the S3? Is it worth seeing if Walmart will return it for me?

    Sorry if this has been asked before, I'm unable to access a computer to do an advanced search.

    1. what apps do you have installed? the free App "ShareMyApps" will make a list if you want to post it here. there is not a mass reset problem with the S3 that i have seen - the device has sold millions and many are happy. hence - you have probably installed a rogue/incompatible app or setting.

    2. if it is not an app or setting problem - you could do a factory reset and start from scratch - but i'm betting it's an app or setting.

    good luck!

    wow you have a lot of games on there - some i see haven't been updated in years. i would delete all unnecessary apps and reinstall them 5 per day. this will help you isolate the rogue app. i've not heard of widespread problems on the S3 - people move it - which tells me you probably have a rogue app. poorly coded apps - or apps that have not been updated in years could cause problems. good luck.
