Hi, I m frm India. I purchased a S3 fone frm dubai. The serial number shown in this fone is 0000000000. And in settings> about phone> status> device status> modified, why does it shows modified and whenever i click on check for update it shows error message ur fone is modified it cannot be updated. I asked samsung customer care they said if the phone's emi is starging from 35 it originally belongs to samsung and it has the imei no. Starting frm 35. What kind of problem it is. Please help.
Thanking you in anticipation

That rumour about the motherboard problem is as rare as rocking horse $hit! I've never come across anyone who has experienced it either.

shipra, 14 Oct 2013want to buy an android phone. please suggest which one is good samsung galaxy S3 or samsung Note 2.If you can handle size get Note 2..I would rather have Not 2 but being honest i cannot handle size but its a beast of a smartfone its just missing the kitchen sink..
davinci, 15 Oct 2013i'm gonna buy this phone but a friend keeps telling me that its board is bad and always gets... moreWell you should know if he is your friend.In simple terms he is lying to you or he is not lying to you only you know and if he is good friend you will be around him to see if its true..Ive had no problems after 14 months of use,i have pebble blue 16GB T-Mobile UK.
This device has many issues as mentioned on websites and forums. In my experience I found that my S3 wont connect to PC with whatever the cable I used and no use of Kies as well. Their services are a bit poor as well. So Check everything about this phone when you are buying it. Good luck!!
2012 best flagship smartphone. Really Awesome.I have the pebble blue version and have a blue silicon case on with Spiderman 3D live wallpaper.Working flawless.I luv Samsung.
