Now I always keep on gsm. I only use wi-fi for data so don't need 3g speed and it's not sucking down the battery. My work sometimes has no signal so I put on airplane mode.
Have been using a i8200N from Virgin Mobile for about a month now (the same phone with a 1.2ghz processor and Android 4.2.2)
It is a great little phone - very cheap and works with a 64gb SD Card, replaceable battery, cheap cases etc. Camera is good enough for most uses and has some nifty features. All apps except the most complex games work fine.
It is so nice to have the power of Android in a phone that isn't huge. I get inclusive tethering on Virgin so just use my tablet for anything that needs a big screen.
If you turn stuff off when you don't need it, the battery will last well. Infinitely cheaper than a 64gb iPhone and arguably as functionality.
jafar.javan@YAHOO.CO, 04 Nov 2014How we reset this device, it is not at optimum status.just turn of and hold volume up,menu before turn it on
select wipe/factory reset by using on/off
use down button to select yes then select on/off
everything is good in this mobile except for the battery! its gets drained very soon before our expectation and there is no more update than jellybean! But has to configuration to hold kitkat!
Great phone, with a good choice of rom and scripts it flies. Great support in XDA also, cyanogenmod, slimrom, pacrom, carbon you name it! IR and LEDs are missing though.
Great phone to start with,I still have mine as daily driver its just perfect size. If you're a follower of custom roms you'll be pleased to know that novafusion team is planning on creating (they're actually working on it now) a Lollipop release.
As for the tremor, I've a tremor too, so I advise you to try Fleksy keyboard and use the big layout, I've been using it and found nothing to rant about. It takes a little getting used to, but definitely worth it.
I hope you enjoy your s3 mini a lot.

But thanks the review. You have made up my mind as it will be my first smartphone. Also good idea about downloading a bigger keyboard as I have problems using the small ones. I have a tremor in my hands.

I have i8190N. When I use 2g mode only, on my network icon, the pole is mostly okay (3 or 4 poles) but when I switch to wcdma which is 3g, the pole can drop to none and then sometimes back to 1, 2 or 3 but it frequently drops to none. Anyone experiencing such problem and how to fix it?
