I have this phone too. Don't want to spend $500+ on a phone. Just found that LineageOS (https://lineageos.org/) has a download for the S3. Might try to install it over the weekend. My phone is starting to have more issues: reboots, gets hot when looking for but not connecting to wi-fi, camera fails at times - still original battery though (lasts a good portion of the day)!
Ilike the phone but PLEASE to all developer please release software update for 2017 please please please -biggest fan of samsung
I made the mistake of using a favorite picture for the lock screen background. Now I have a new phone and there is no way to retrieve the picture although it still shows up as the lock screen background. Otherwise battery life was abysmal and Verizon programs were relentless with intrusion. I hated this phone.
please I bricked my s3 1747.. can I unbrick it with a 4.4.2 KitKat custom ROM?
Sameer, 10 Apr 2017 I want to buy Samsung s3 SGH l747. It would be good or notI wouldn't unless it comes sim unlocked. Otherwise it's a decent phone with an unlocked bootloader for custom roms. Even so, I would go with newer hardware.

I've had my Galaxy S III I747 for about 6 years. But now the battery is pretty bad. If I take one picture or surf the web for 3 minutes, the phone completely dies and I can't even turn it on. I got the red phone and really love it, but now it's time to get something with real battery power.
