Samsung Galaxy S3 to come to Australia? "No plans" at this time!


Thursday 10th of May 2012 / androidauthority.com
[May 10] Updated with information on the retailers that put up pre-order pages for the Samsung Galaxy S3, as well as the Australian carriers that have put-up registration pages for information on the S3.While European, Asian, and North American technology lovers are already getting their budgets straight and making plans for the Samsung Galaxy S3, Australians don’t have much to be excited for, at least at for now. In an exclusive statement given to the guys at gizmodo.au, Samsung Australia said that there are no plans to make any announcements right now about the phone’s availability in “the land down under”.The full statement reads as follows: “Samsung Electronics Australia is pleased there is continued interest about our GALAXY range in Australia, but we have no plans to make any announcements at this time.”While it’s pretty difficult to make any safe assumptions based on this short statement, there could only be three possible reasons why Samsung Australia is reluctant to talk about the Galaxy S3’s availability.First off, Sammy’s new flagship phone might never c

change signal from sprint to verizon but stay with straight talk


Sunday 08th of September 2013 / androidforums.com
I just bought a Samsung Galaxy S3 for straight talk, it is running on the Sprint network (a fact I did not realize before purchasing). I don't have sprint coverage in my area, but have great Verizon coverage. Is it possible to make this phone use the Verizon tower signals and continue to use straight talk service? BTW, I have 2 straight talk phones, each different... one is the afore mentioned and the other is an LG Optimus Dynamic which feels like a toy phone in comparison, but gets great coverage where I am. I don't want to keep two phones active. Can't I make the galaxy think it is the LG and get the Verizon coverage with the awesomeness that is the S3. I reeeeeeaaaaallllyyy love this new S3, please don't make me go back to the LG toy phone, puuuuhhhlleeeeeeze!!! (falling to the floor dramatically) Thank you!

Straight talk samsung galaxy s3 issues!


Monday 30th of December 2013 / androidforums.com
I bought a Samsung Galaxy S3 from craigslist (I know, Bad Idea). Ive tried to activate the phone through straight talk but they say its an invalid IMEI# and that its inactive. Ive also tried buying a Straight talk SIM card and installing that, still no service. Idk what to do, is there something someone could have done to the phone ie Flashing or unlocking that would change the IMEI from a straight talk phone to another? Please HELP! Thanks in advance for any advice.

Help rooting my Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy S3


Thursday 13th of February 2014 / androidforums.com
Hello, Im fairly new to these forums, and new to android phones. I bought a Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy S3 (SCH-S960L). But i am pretty new to rooting, custom ROMs, ect. And because of that reason, along with the fact that i bricked my last Straight Talk phone after incorrectly rooting it, I am quite apprehensive to root with anything that is specified to Sprint, T-Mobile or any other carrier/model of phone. I would like to have the most knowledge i can gather about rooting this specific model of phone before i go about with actually doing it. So recently i have been looking through any information i am able to find online about how to go about rooting it. However, I cannot seem to find hardly anything on how to root this specific model of phone, and any information i do find seems to be pretty iffy with reliability. So my question is, could ANYONE help guide me through this process so i can successfully root my device without messing something up and having a $399 dollar brick on my desk. Thanks in advanced.

Hey! I'm new to these threads, but found a lot of the information on here helpful. I have a Samsung Galaxy s3 through Straight Talk (SCH-S968C), and they aren't updating any of their phones. This is the second phone I've bought that hasn't been updated with all the new updates. I'm in version 4.1.2. I want to Root my phone so I can get the Kit Kat update, but I want to make sure that I know what I'm doing because I don't want to brick my phone. I kinda need it. Haha. Has anybody been successful in Rooting a straighttalk phone.. or know how? I have Cydia Impactor downloaded, I just don't really know what to do. Oh! & I have no idea what any of this "root" talk means. But I'm very good at following instructions. Help please!

Samsung Galaxy S3 No Signal.. Help Please!!


Thursday 15th of May 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hi, I have a Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S3 (originally T-Mobile) that I use with Straight Talk I have a SIM card in it from the BYOP program. It is not getting any signal/service. I have verified that it's still unlocked, not blacklisted, the SIM works in my other phone as well but I ordered a new SIM anyway and that SIM works in both phones so it is not the SIM. I have done a factory reset but still nothing. I have also taken the battery out, put it back in, and turned phone on but it didn't work.. I have done all the steps that Straight Talk suggest. I also checked and I still have an IMEI number. I have done a software update. Sometimes the phone will have 4G but then seconds later it will go back to no service/signal and say searching on the unlock screen. The icon at the top is a circle with a slash through it. When I try to make a call when it has that icon it says mobile network not available. My APN settings have been updated and are correct and airplane mode is not on. I have GSM/WCDMA only selected and have tried switching to the other two but still nothing. This might no
