I bought S3 on 21st of Oct,12. Its a nice smartphone i would say. All went well till i started using GPRS. Unfortunately my S3 started heating up whenver I use internet. The bottom part heats up like anything. I went to Ezone (from where i purchased)they directed me to Samsung service center. After informing them about the issue they said it could be an issue with OS or Apps installed on it. They took a day to chek the same and restored my phone to its factory settings. There itself i started using internet and again....started heating. I gave it back to them and they said YES we will provide an exchange for this with a new one and labelled the old one as DOA (Dead On Arrival). The problem was with the PBA (Printer Board Assembly), which was unnecesarily heats up with data transmission. Whatever....., I received my new piece and its the second day and i have been using internet like 24/7 and fortunately no more heating issues :D

Am very glad that Samsung stood with their product and honoured its warranty.

I really recommend this phone to all of you....

I used Mobile Odin to install the stoch NEE Jelly Bean from sammobile.com! You need too be rooted to usse Mobile Odin, but when you are then you can let Mobile Odin automatically root every new firmware that you install using Odin! The "normal" Odin does not need root, but does not automatically root the new firmware! Odin is a lot safer, riskfree, than using Kies or OTA!
After the update I got gigantic batterydrain because the mediascanner, "Media" in the list of batteryusers, drained the battery, but I solved this by installing the free app "Rescan Media ROOT" from Google Play, that app needs root,!
Of some reason I can not login using Facebook to comment here on GSMArena!

It might be something as simple as out of date drivers. Search for the latest Drivers for your modem, for example:

> In reply to Dee @ 2012-10-27 05:37 from v}7V - click to readU are connected to your wireless router to your modem & ISP. Your router maximum throughput is 150mbps @ 2.4Ghz, 150mbps @ 5Ghz. If u have a, say 50mbps plan from your ISP, your internet speed is capped @ 50mbps. Anyway, u won't hit that speed.

I'm having an Asus 300mbps dual band router with a 100mbps plan. My link speed is 72mbps from S3. Through speedtest app, maximum hit is about 40mbps. Using my laptop, I can hit up to 85mbps.

The next time you get the message. Do a internet speed test.
Www.speedtest.net or download the app. What download speed are you paying for? It could be dropping very slow when you are getting the message. Are you getting the message only when streaming media?

I can't say for you but could your router be losing internet from time to time? (Bad service provider)?
