Samsung S3 : Full Lock Screen Bypass
It is possible to bypass the lock screen on the S3 allowing an indivdual full access to the phones features
==============Steps to recreate==============
1) On the code entry screen press Emergency Call2) Then press Emergency Contacts3) Press the Home button once4) Just 
after pressing the Home button press the power button quickly5) If successful, pressing the power button again will 
bring you to the S3's home screen

1) It can take quite a few attempts to get this working, sometimes this method works straight away, other times it can 
take more than 20 attempts.
2) The method has been tested on 3 S3's
3) The method also seems to work better when the mobile has auto rotation on.
