NOW I understand what you was asking about the default Apps, and the answer is NO I'm afraid. The Apps you refer to would have been installed into the Firmware by your carrier expressly for their customers. When you flash your phone with a custom ROM you install a 'raw' version of the Firmware.
Re; Your news feed. Have you tried Settings/Lock screen\Lock screen options\ and pressing on 'Information ticker? You get 3 options there including 'Sliding speed'.

Go to Settings/Language and input. Under the Heading 'Keyboards and input methods' you will see 'Samsung keyboard' with a cog wheel next to it.
Click on the cog and select Input language. Untick 'Use system language' and you can choose as many languages as you wish.
Then, on Messaging you can change the language by swiping the space bar left/right.

You can reflash your phone back to any former release. The one you want is here:
and the insructions are here if you need them:
I tried to read the rest of your post but my eyes started watering ! If I read it right then you will be able to get the Apps you lost back from the Google Store for free. I think that was what you meant.
Re: The news feed. I just turned mine on and it scrolls across the screen perfectly. Perhaps nothing ever happens in Oz!
Can anybody tell me whether it is possible to change language when writing an sms? On my former mobile, Xperia Arc, I could just touch a button on the keyboard an switch between English and my own language.

couple questions.. ok since im up and running on jb is it possible and or how to revert back to my ics firmware/branded firmware for maybe later on when the official OTA jelly bean update is released (so i get all my carrier apps/widgets back for instance)
also wondering what would happen if i were to do a restore with Kies if it would revert it back to the way i had it or if you guys knew possibly if id get the branded app/widgets i lost with the manual update while keeping 4.1.1 or it would stay as is (hope that wasnt confusing)..
finally one tiny gripe ive noticed with the manual JB update is my news feed running along the bottom of my lock screen doesnt seem to scroll anymore(have checked settings), it just sits there now and i have to manually push it to see more... seeing if anyone else had this also?
apart from that loving the s3 on the bean! its so bada$$!!

Contact your carrier and ask them to send you the settings for your phone. It sounds as though you do not have the correct APN installed.
I have a Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III which from O2 carrier, my sister give me this set and i am using it at Bangladesh. OS 4.0.4. Last few days my Google play store is not working over wifi. If i try over GSM its ok. I cant brows internet over wifi, only googl play store not working. what coudl be happen ? I dont know its rooted or not. please anybody let me know . Thanks

A few months after S4 comes out, then iPhone 6 comes out and the cycle continues. Better to get all the information needed, and buy the phone that serves your needs best, at whatever point in time you buy it.
