    When the screen is off my S3 screen turns on for maybe a second or less every once in a while. I think this has only been happening recently and could possibly linked to JB upgrade or maybe an app that I have installed.

    Anyone have a resolution?

    I have all text messages blocked by Verizon so I do not get any SMS

    does it coincide with any notification, like email?

    It does not appear to have anything to do with the receipt of email.

    pretty sure my problem was caused by doggcatcher. There's an option that's defaulted to keep the screen on when it's downloading.

    Can you list off apps that you do have installed?
