Andy, 12 Nov 2012Great phone. Too bad the build quality is so bad. The plastic around it it's not even high end... moreactually it is made out of Polycarbonate which is a "high end plastic", if you prefer to call it that way. the only thing that makes it kinda look cheap is the glossy finish on it. you can try flexing the back cover, it's actually very sturdy. if you want to prove that it's gonna break after flexing too hard, give a link of a video at least. watch blendtech's will it blend of SIII, and you'll see that the phone actually has a great build quality.

jayK, 13 Nov 2012How are people upgrading their S3 in India to Jeely Bean.. I check in my fone daily and i can... morejayK, you have to download samsung kies to your pc or laptop to update your S3's firmware to jellybean. I am using a S2 gingerbread a year and a half ago.....and I just recently updated to ICS....you just have to download kies to a pc or a laptop to avail of the updated version for your S3...just follow the instructions on kies, goodluck.
Anthony, 13 Nov 2012As you may remember. My HD2 was a productivity tool isn't no different with the SIII for me.
... moreThanks for ur reply. Keis is samsung thing. It wont work on my Motorola. By the way, i do not understand your contact problem i.e sorting with company name...like in hd2. I think this is very basic feature and all mobile ph has it.
I mean I can search by company. For e.g.. If i need to call somebody whose name I don't remember.... I just type few letters of his company name and i get the result. I can do that in my Motorola also ..but don't know about S3.
Tip for the day. .
You can have you own made notification tone by saving the mp3 in the notifications folder in the internal storage.
You can have a different notification tone for each app by setting the tone within the app settings.
Syrus, 13 Nov 2012If you don't like iphone UI & closed system, then you won't probably like Win8 phone eithe... moreAs you may remember. My HD2 was a productivity tool isn't no different with the SIII for me.
As soon as I got it I came here for help to get everything to sync currently with outlook. (Have to use a paid app called moffice to get the syncing and the level of editing I want for outlook. )
And yes I'm big user of Skype. Very happy that I don't have to wait till I get home to video chat with friends out of the country now.
I'M a PC gamer playing games on a phone not going to cut it.
Got the Xbox 360 slim as a gift from my wife. And it has a layer of dust on it.
The eye candy I like in WP8 is how FB is integrated into contact. Let's you see update without always having to check an app. The FB home screen widget for this phone is limited in content and contact integration of facebook is also limited.
As for the iPhone there is no home screen widgets of any kind. You have to go in a app for every kind of data you want.
WP8 also has garim something I still have to use my HD2 for because Android doesn't have Garmin.
You know my long list of don't likes in wp7 but most have been address in WP8. But I want to see it in the wild to know if it lives up to my needs and expectations.
As for changing ROMs on my phone I used Odin3 (no rooting needed) been trying JB UK & Brazil beta versions.
Now I'm on the official JB for my region via OTA.
did that by replacing my provider ROM with my region unlocked ics using odin3. Cleared my cache partition and hard reset. Then I got the OTA JB update for my region but the factory unlocked version.
I can still restore my provider ROM using my s/n and kies.
jayK, 13 Nov 2012How are people upgrading their S3 in India to Jeely Bean..
I check in my fone daily and i can... moreIndia SIII have the jellybean update you need to connect to a PC with kies
Do you have a factory unlocked phone?
Or did you get a SIII for a next region?
Your version 4.0.4 SIII should have a baseband version I9300XXBLH1.
and it would upgrade to 4.1.1 with baseband version I9300XXDLJ5.
If you have a provider branded phone be angry with your provider.
when will JB be available in Nepal? I daily check update in my S3 but found "no update available".
How are people upgrading their S3 in India to Jeely Bean..
I check in my fone daily and i can not see any update available. I don't have kies so cn nt update with it..
has anyone received the update OTA through software update in settings menu??
I guess samsung will nt release the update in India..
Stupid Company.. Stupid Promises.. I guess samsung is forcing us to sell this fone to get jelly bean in india..
