Samsung Galaxy S III Intermittently Shuts Off.. Ideas?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Howdy!

Brand new Samsung Galaxy S III shuts off randomly. So frustrating to find it dead in my pocket. I thought I noticed that it did this when I dropped it from ~.5-1 inch but I think it was just once. Thoughts of anything I could do before I take it to the store and have a manufacturer's return?

Thanks!

Shut's off when?
Have you used the product for awhile?
What kind of apps did you install?

A lot of factors can make or break an issue with any, dropping the phone .5~.1 inches shouldn't really damage the phone. If you don't really care, and can take waiting a couple more days for the RMA to come-back in, then I'd say just RMA it. It also sounds as if you were having problems with when you first turned it on?... >"Burn in failure"
