I got my Samsung Galaxy S3 but it was bought from South Korea. At first it was all Korean but after some time(or some tweaks) I managed to set it to English. (No, I am not A Korean).

Can I flash the firmware to a real English version(using ODIN or any other software)? I entered the model number because I might do something wrong but everything is in Korea (SHW-M440S: http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/1/?model=SHW-M440S&pcode=SKT#firmware).

Another problem on my phone is it will only send an SMS if it has 80 or less characters on the message.

P.S. I am very new to Odin and flashing an Android phone. But I have seen some tutorial on how to do it.

to clear things up: can I use other model version's firmware in flashing my Samsung Galaxy S3?(e.g., SHW-M440S to GT-I9300) –  weyhei Apr 21 '13 at 5:38
