    S3 Occasionally Reboots After Power Off

    Intermittently, my unrooted Galaxy S3 will reboot (start up again) after I power it off.

    I can get it to power off properly by pushing "restart," allowing the phone to boot up, then pushing power off once again.

    The phone doesn't do this every time I power it down - it happens maybe 1 out of four times.

    But that's annoying.

    AND my wife's unrooted Galaxy S3 does exactly the same thing.

    An ATT store employee claims ATT has not heard of this problem and offers no solution.

    Suppose it could be an app that's causing the problem, but not sure. Thought Nova might be the culprit. So set my wife's S3 back to Touchwiz, but still experiences the (intermittent) problem.

    Anyone else with this issue?

    Solution?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum k6!
    I haven't experienced this problem on my S3, but it has come up before on our other forum. You might sign up and ask your question on our sister site S3Forums.com, where you'll more than likely get a quicker response. We've got a very friendly and knowledgeable group of folks over there who just love to help people, so give that a try.
    Good luck!

    Why would I "likely get a quicker response" on the competing forum??

    Is Android.net less friendly and knowledgeable than S3Forums.com?

    It's not a "competing" forum. They're part of the same forum foundry of sites. I merely suggested it, because it's dedicated solely to the S3, whereas Android.net covers ALL make/model Android phones, and so there aren't as many S3 owners here. We've got many more S3 members over there, and you'll get a much quicker response. I'm a moderator on both forums, so I'm not going to steer you wrong. Just a suggestion.
    (And no, it is just as friendly here as it is over there)

    Appears as if the problem was solved by a battery pull.
