mattyjnz: Hmm, ok. I read somewhere that a damaged sd card might be causing that then, is that likely.

I bought a new card a few weeks back and it started playing up just recently. Have formatted it, but still unmounts and re-mounts itself periodically.

Sounds like I might need to send it back.


I have a 32gb mSD I bought from mymemory.co.uk and just in last week its started doing many mount and dismounts and varied messages about sd has unsupported files and also other error messages.

Hope the card is not failing!


Sounds exactly like the problems I was having. 

Card went gangbusters for a month, then started playing up. Nothing I could do would fix it.

Contacted the retailer and they have shipped me a new card, will see how that works.

Not sure what your battery drain is like, but since I removed the sd card I am only losing 7% overnight, compared to 50% with the card in the phone. That's with Google Now enabled. Perhaps the talk about Google Now being battery hungry might be a myth. It's certainly not having any effect on my battery anyway.

Has anyone had this problem? Where the VF Simcard icon goes missing from the main screen, this only happens when I power on/off my S3? This only stared happening after I upgraded to the latest version of the FW.

Do you mean the ICON for SIM took kit? (upside down SIM) That is not meant to show

Yeah, that's it. Instead of paging via the App's pages to get to it.. I thought of creating a short cut so that I could access it quickly to check the balance etc. Oh really? It appears for a few seconds and then it gets deleted from the page.

No, it's not being updated - you've managed to reboot it into download mode. If it's not connected to your PC, you're safe to reboot it.

Thanks so much. Dunno how I did it, but I would have been sitting waiting all day if you hadn't told me :)

Not correct entirely. Vodafone stock the i9300 and i9305 and i9305 has 2GB RAM and DC support. i9300 specs for both the retailers are exactly the same (1GB RAM and no DC support). Vodafone sells both the versions and 2D only sells i9300.

Yes if you check out this thread (below) you will see that you, me and hundreds of others have had the same problem.
I had a call from my supplier yesterday to say that the phone is on its way back to me with a new motherboard.

Yup happend to mine too. It just wouldn't turn on anymore, took it back to 2degrees and got it back with a new motherboard about three weeks later.
