ibuksh: Had a random reboot while using viber today..

If viber had stopped working.. fair enough.. but a random reboot...!!! that was wierd.. coz its the first random reboot since the last official update..

fingers crossed if it has to die, it better dies within the next 2 weeks coz my handset warranty expires after that...


I've had Viber reboot my phone several times now, usually when I'm trying to add a photo from my gallery to a conversation.

Also Skype make your phone get blue screen at times and crash your phone as well.

Yup.. adding a foto to a conversation definitely reboots the phone

and also the blue it flashes is more like the facebook blue shade rather than the skype blue shade..

So my 13 month S3's headphone jack has stopped working which is a bummer. Only the left ear gets any sound. If you put pressure on the headphone by pushing the jack in, I get sound on both ears. 

I tried cleaning the jack out but hasn't really worked. Any tips or solutions? Really sucks as I used my S3 for music and videos a lot.

Send it for warranty. It is 2years if it is bought locally (Vodafone or Telecom). I rung Samsung about my frame cracked and button flushing in AMD the rep told me that I have two years warranty on all NZ model S3.

I run both Viber and Skype and have never had a reboot problem due to those apps.

As a matter of interest I posted another thread on a recent problem I had trying to get a Personal Hot spot connection  from my stock standard S3 to an Asus Vivo TF600 Windows RT Tablet.
In the end we got it going but brought up some interesting comments

I dropped my S3 last weekend and the glass is now cracked but fortunately enough for me, the handset is still working. I took it to OMNI mobile repairs and they quoted me $380 saying it needs a full screen and glass replacement even though the screen is intact and its just the glass that needs replacing.

I have looked around and just the glass on trademe is just $40 and I have seen how to install it on youtube.

I would just like to know if anyone has installed the glass that he/she bought on trademe..?

And if yes then how is the useability of it... I mean touch sensitivity and swiping and all..

Would appreciate some feedback
