I have a Samsung SGH I747M, that constantly reboots especially when using it, like using the camera and games..

It happens less often when it's charging, so I am wondering before I buy a battery if that could cause it to reboot....

Hey, and yes a defective battery can certainly cause havoc on your phone's ability to turn on/off, and stay on. I recently got a ZeroLemon 7000mah battery for my s3, and it seems if I remove it a certain way, it somehow completely corrupts the ssd and I have to go into recovery and format data...
Anyway, try buying a new battery and see how that goes. They're about 10 bucks on Amazon.

What is usually is the power button is maybe really sensitive to touch, or it's sticking which would cause a lot of reboots without you knowing it.

Why do you remove it? If your phone freezes, Holding the power button for 10 seconds reboots.

Well I have great news!!!!!!

Here's the story.......plz read carefully....

I have a Samsung galaxy SGH I747m originally from bell, it would randomly crash and reboot even when am not using it,It would also crash repeatedly when I use the camera or playing modern combat or temple run..I have tried about 13 different custom roms and the stock Rom(4.1.2).I tried resetting the phone.I tried the dummy file generator to no success. I pulled the phone and cleaned around the power button. I unrooted the phone, to no success.still got the annoying crashes and reboots.probably about 10 times per day...I was so frustrated and was planning to destroy the phone..to my surprise it was a simple fix..

The problem was simply the battery, I bought a baterry and have been using the phone for 3 days now without any crashes or reboots. I wasnt convinced it was simply the battery so I changed back the old battery and boom#! The phone restarted!..
So now I was 100% sure it was the battery..

So before you go trying all different manner of evil consider testing your battery first.. you can message me if you have any questions..


And remember the galaxy s3 is a great phone once its not giving any problems so don't go buy an iphone!! :) :)

This was the old battery I had in that was causing the reboots.it is made in China and was bigger and fatter than the other battery..

This is the new battery that I bought.it is made in Vietnam and is slimmer and lighter..uploadfromtaptalk1382895302860.jpg

People just test your battery first before doing anything else if your phone keeps rebooting and crashing..
