I noticed some of you reported call quality issues, just wondering putting a case will have same effect too ?

I appreciate advise from any one who already using case.

BTW am planning to buy rock case

Did you do the *#0*# LCD test?


Yep, sure did. Just setting up the replacement now. When I took the phone in I kept saying "I know it sounds really petty but I do want a replacement..."

Pixel test for the new phone has passed, all looking good. Time to set everything up and install all those apps I was holding off on.

On another note, what was the app which lets you configure the LED alerts for different apps?

On the contrary - I'm super impressed with the call quality on the S3, made a couple of calls on speaker phone and very clear and easy to understand.

Foo: Just picked up my replacement SGS III - the first had a couple of stuck pixels. Just charging it up before I do the pixel test :-)

Now I can let myself properly customise things, something I held off doing until I got the replacement.


I'm about to fire off an email to WHS about my screen too.  I have already rooted so I suspect I'll have to go in-store to show the problem with the screen (under dark conditions - which is how I use it in the morning while others sleep in).

I'll have to un-root it.  Have yet to find out if there's a method to un-root, or I have to flash the stock ROM to it.

Hope your new one is good to go :)


Just run triangleaway first, then use odin to flash the stock rom.

Loving the S3 but why did Samsung take Swype away? Not a fan of Samsung's version, not as user friendly.

How do you change the default calendar when adding events? It always defaults to "Samsung Calendar" so frustrating!

viperguy: Well after procrastinating and fondling in stores


Haha I had to laugh...it's actually like that!

I did the same this week...I own a White S3 already, but since the Blue one came out I have been looking and fondling them this week too...So today I went and grabbed one and gave the White one to the wife.

Good on the wife for being a good sport!

Bought a blue from Jb Hi Fi Dunedin today and also a Samsung 'Essential Accessory Gift Pack' which includes:
1. Flip cover http://www.samsung.com/nz/consumer/mobile-phone/mobile-phone/accessories/EFC-1G6FWECSTD?subsubtype=others-multimedia
q
uite good as it replaces the phones back cover with the cover over the screen

2. Clear slim covers x 2 - couldn't find these on Samsung website. Aftermarket covers?

3. Spare battery

4. Battery charging stand http://www.techmaish.com/the-official-accessories-of-samsung-galaxy-s3/
The 'stand' is ok but is really only for charging the spare battery. It has a slot to stand your phone in but no connection to charge! There is a pic of one in the link 

all for $80
