I was extremely happybwith my Galaxy s 111 mini until it suddenly started telling me "not registered on network". Switching off, removing the battery and restarting sometimes works, but not always. Sometimes using Whatsup revives it but only sporadically. Help from the network provider is useless. I need a reliable cure.

guys i have been using it for almost a year. i must say for those having doubt about it, ITS THE BEST MIDRANGE device. Camera is great especially for video making (i have made dozens of 720p with absolute clearity). muisc quality is extremelly good and if you want optimum result, install next launcher and feel the difference. it will really become butter smooth and lag free. much better usability than stock touchwiz. just my opinion.
Many time i thought of shifting to nexus 4 and xperia sp but the love i have for this little droid prevents me for exchanging it, and i might keep it for longer or might give it to my family member in the end so that it can stay within my house :) . simply marvellous device. shame samsung isnt supporting it.

Hi there!
I bought my SGS 3 mini more than a year now, and i am using the official rom. Suddenly, the phone is not able to charge the battery. when i plug in the charger it says "charging" but the bat percentage keeps decreasing until finally going dead.
I sent it to Samsung service center who apologized to repair and said it may be a defect in the mother board.
I purchased an external charger and the phone is usable again, but it is a real pain to switch it off and remove the battery each time i need to charge it.
I thought that this may be a software bug or something, so i performed a hard reset but in vain.
Now i am thinking of re-installing the official rom.
Do you think this could solve the problem? what are your thoughts? thanks.

i don't know why this complain about battery life. Of course is not the best, every smartphone have this issue. You can not expect performance and good price with one product. I have been use it for a year now the S3 mini and work perfectly, if you want something else then go buy S4, S4 mini, Note 3....oh i forgot....they are expensive!!!!

NFC is only available on the i8190N, and that version is country dependent, which means that it is only available in countries that support it.
