Thanks astralmaster....hope it continues working as well. I'd like to get a few years on this phone before I buy another one like it. I do like the Samsung phones and this particular one is a particularly good value. I'd still recommend this phone to anyone as an alternative to the $600 - $1,000+ phones as a good basic smartphone.

I have a Samsung J3 phone that just started restarting on it's own when playing Words with Friends about 2 weeks ago. The frequency of the restarts became greater as time passed. I initially thought it might have something to do with a OS update about a month ago and took it into my AT&T dealer who ran a diagnostic on the hardware/software which produced no issues. Because the phone was barely within the one year warranty, they sent me a new phone with the understanding that if they could not find anything wrong with the phone I was replacing, I would end up purchasing the replacement. That is when I found this website! I did uninstall the update for Games Optimising Service and now my phone works fine...at least for the past several days. I sent the replacement phone back to avoid any charges to me. I think this phone does what I need it to do for a great price. Thank you all for your input and I look forward to Samsung's new update to fix this issue. I still think it had something to do with the last OS update.
