i.e. phone is sitting there, doing nothing, next thing I know I hear the familiar reboot tinkle. Has done that a few times today.

 

Anyone know why?

 

Is there any log available on the S3 that would tell me why it decided to reboot?

 

Thanks.

There must be a fault with your phone

Hmmm....that happened on mine for a day or two then
suddenly stopped and never did it again.

Try removing the battery...switch it off...and leave it for an
hour or two and try it again.

You could try a factory reset but back up your contacts and messages first, most stuff comes back after anyway

Make sure you have the latest system update from Samsung installed. These symptoms are similar to those that are apparently a precursor to the Sudden Death Syndrome which totally and irrevocably bricks your S3. (Which just happened to me this week.)
