Touchscreen sometimes doesn't work in my samsung galaxy S3

It just stopped respoonding to my touch and i couldn't unlock it no matter where i swipe but otherwise the phone is working, i got messages and calls i just couldnt answer them. after few hours it work and searching through the net i did al theses factory reset , rebooting take out the battery leave it even for one hour but then it keeps freezing and then for two days it remains the same so i turned it off and bought a cheaper phone. but yesterday i turned on my s3 again and it works for whole day but then it stop again during midnight and today again it works. Does anyone can help me about this? thanks in advance

Welcome to Android Central. :)

It could simply be that the digitiser is failing.
Has the phone ever got wet?

No it never gets wet nor dropped, and also last night it works so i performed that Samsung Touch test using *#0*# and i pass the test so it means its not hardware , right? im really confused with this phone it works whenever it likes and its very frustrating. thanks again

If you are rooted, then you can just try another ROM. I would suggest SlimKat from Slimroms.net. It's fast and light.
