Anonymous, 31 Jan 2013How do you know if your phone is rooted? That's easy. Try to install an app that needs root access.
If it installs, your phone is rooted.
If it says you need root access then your phone is not rooted.
Note: your phone doesn't need to be rooted to change to an other official ROM using odin3

My friend S3 doesn't have this issue . I am really worried now .Don't take sh-t from retailers. (If it has been that way from day one)
go in with your phone together with your friends phone and show them the difference and demand to have your phone changed. (Record any conversation you have with any rep)
Once you have your bill of sale, the device has no scratches on it. And no water damage.... I say your problem falls under manufacturer defect and they have to change it or take the matter up with consumer affaires. Don't let sellers take advantage of you. (Unless you bought it from the back of a truck)
The screen back light keeps turning on and of by itself
What I can do to stop that
Did you hear about the guy that got the hand of the MOST beautiful girl in all the world, he was very happy, until he found..
she had a laugh that would make a donkey sound musical...
her memory seemed to only last for a few days, then she went back to like a 5 year old..
her dinner and bedside habits were like a pig... not easy when trying to love than fantastic body....
just like when a phone is 95% display, WHY do you groan about the 5%, that will be hidden a a protective case??????

It shouldn't cost you anything to get your phone repaired, because it comes with 12 months warranty. The S3 was only released 8 months ago, in May 2012, so your phone is still under warranty and will be repaired free. If you are being charged for the repair then you are being scammed.
Freefaller, 30 Jan 2013@ Anonymous Yes, it happens to every Galaxy S3 that was ever made after 200 days use. As so... morethis question is asked every 2 days cz its not cool to lose your phone after paying 600$ on it :P
