Help Galaxy S3 keeps on shutting off

It just started today but every couple of minutes or if I shake or jolt my phone the phone shuts off, sometimes it wont even boot all the way. Ive also found that I can turn the phone on by pressing the screen and back on certain spots of the phone near the battery.

anyone? I just bought a new s3 battery just in case that was the problem should be here in a few days

I owned an S2 and it would turn off at times for no apparent reason. I discovered that the battery did not fit tightly. I cut a small piece off of a thin plastic collar stay (the little plastic piece that's inserted in the underside of the collar to keep it stiff) and inserted it between the battery and the battery slot to make for a tight fit. Problem solved.

Regards,
Michael
