    Hi all -

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 4G. 3g, 4g, WiFi all work fine during use.

    My problem relates to 3g/4g ("mobile internet") turning off when the phone has spent >3 minutes in the lock screen.

    I can get 3g/4g to turn back on by clicking the home button/power key and then also entering my pattern to pass the lock screen. But until I pass the lock screen, 3g/4g remain off.

    The issue is that I want my 3g/4g to remain on (despite the battery drain) so that I can always receive Whatsapp messages, e-mails, notifications, etc. :afraid:

    Note: I am NOT writing to ask how to increase my sync frequency. The issue is that 3g/4g actually turn off (ie, 3g/4g logo disappears from the taskbar).

    I am NOT running any powersaving apps, and Power Saving on my phone is NOT enabled. In my "Lock Screen Options", "Wake up in lock screen" IS checked.

    Happy to provide more details if needed.

    Thanks everyone!

    I am having a similar problem with mine. But I have to reboot my phone to get the signal back...

    Very irritating...
