Display time-out resetting and icon disappearing
I have an international S3 on 3UK running 4.1.2
I have experienced the odd restart - normally when copy/pasting large amounts of text in chrome.
Anyway, 2 things are puzzling me.
On a restart I lose 1 of the apps at the bottom of the screen. It is currently Messaging, but it doesn't seem to matter what app I put there or in what position, a restart removes it and just leaves Phone Contacts Gmail and Apps.
This is beginning to get annoying.
The other issue is screen time-out. I normally have it set to 15 or 30 seconds. When plugged in it shows () which I presume means always on.
If the phone resets while plugged in, then for some reason it defaults to 10 minutes! This os annoying as it is killing my battery.
I am considering a factory reset if there are no other options - BUT if I do a FR, will I lose my Angry Birds progress?
I don't currently know of any app that works on a non rooted phone to back up AB. Is there any otherway, like connecting to the PC?
