    Recently my SGS3 randomly stops locking the screen - both when the screen times out, as well as when I turn it off.

    A phone that only locks some of the time is in many ways worse than a phone that is not locked at all.

    I rooted this phone about a month ago, and that didn't seem to break anything. Still using stock ROM, so that's not the cause.
    Recently I installed GO Launcher, and I'm thinking that might be the problem, but really like this launcher, so I don't want to remove it.

    When I restart the phone, the lock screen functionality returns, but who knows for how long...

    I think you have answered you own question...

    GO Launcher, or were you suggesting rebooting the device every time it freezes?

    I guess I was wondering if anyone else had similar issues with Go Launcher...

    I wound up disabling the stock lockscreen, and installed/configured GO Locker, which basically does the same thing, although I think it probably works better with GO Launcher.

    Hi pneum0!:)
    I have the SGS3 here in America, and I use Go Launcher, without any problem.
    Perhaps this is some glitch with Go and root, but I am not sure as my phone is not rooted. Have you tried Apex Launcher? It is quite similar to Go Launcher, and may not have that same glitch.
