    I've noticed on my Verizon S3 that my screen will 'blip' or flicker at radon when typing with the keyboard. I cannot say when or how it happens as it is completely random and goes so quick if you blink you'll miss it. It happens with the stock keyboard as well as smart keyboard.

    Just want to see if anyone else sees this so I can try to get a replacement before my two week period is up and they send me a refurbished phone.

    Mine does it too. Randomly. I am hoping a software update fixes this.
    I doubt we have the only phones that do this. It does in fact only happen when typing an email or text message or in whatsapp.
    Don't sweat it.

    What keyboard are you guys using? The default samsung keyboard did this to me, so I am using a different keyboard now and no flash/blip.

    I have the same issue - only since the JB update, and only when I'm using Handcent. But I hate the stock messaging app so I just deal with it until a fix comes out!

    If this is a corruption of about 1/3rd of the screen, I noticed it start around when I upgraded to JB and a new swype version.

    Go into developer options and check "disable hardware overlays" and see if that helps.
