Regarding the basic problem - if the phone isn't showing the battery graphic when you connect the charger, that's a bad sign. You could try booting into Recovery mode or Download mode just to see what happens : you use Recovery mode to clear the system cache and to Factory Reset you use Download (aka Odin) mode (showing the Android guy) to load/reload ...

Here's the solution that worked for me. When 4.3 came out the first thing i did was place all my apps on the SD card which was great for freeing up space on the phone. Unfort. all app notification settings reset upon reboot as you described which was super frustrating. Specifically i'm talking about the app notification check box you see in every app when in ...

Do this...it works..copied from a helpful chap elsewhere! If you go to the Google Play Music site on a browser (PC / Laptop) & navigate to the album you bought, you can select to download the album as a zip of MP3 files, or each individual song. Strange this isn't offered within the app itself. Seems Google may be discouraging us from using alternative ...

Sounds like a corrupted operating system preventing a full system boot. I would flash a stock system image. I have provided links below to a few helpful resources that will hopefully get you back up and running! Take a look at this website: http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki/Samsung_Galaxy_S_III/GT-I9300 Navigate to the enter download mode section. Then ...

To add on to Matthew's comment, go to settings> device> default applications and take a look at what is set as your default messaging app. The app listed there should be the one receiving the SMS and sending you the notifications. If you're not seeing the messages listed there, we'll be happy to help you track down the issue.

It's possible that the flash purely failed, or that you dirty flashed (flashing without clearing the cache/data) the ROM. Seeing as you have access to recovery: I'd suggest that you download a new CM ROM (Lollipop-5.0.2) from the XDA Developer Forums Download the corresponding Google Apps package (i.e. for PA GApps for Android L) Place both of the .zip ...

1) Yes, it's a good idea. 2) Yes, your phone will support it. I've seen ROMs for the S3 (i9300) up to 5.0.2 3) Benefits include; security fixes, better stability, improved battery life, new features and a lot more! To update your phone, I would suggest rooting it (there's a lot of information on rooting over at the XDA Developers Forums ...

So, after a long year trying to figure out what was going on, I have just reset my phone to factory settings and it works perfectly, but I am still not able to determine the cause of that problem.

In Android each application can control the notifications itself. So if you turn off vibration for calls, texts will still have the option, and so on. In the case of Hangouts: Open the application. Swipe from the left to open the menu (technically it's a navigation drawer). Tap "Settings" Tap "SMS" You can enable/disable vibration here: If you ...

I have the same problem, it is due to the fact that the power button is a bit broken and stay pushed. Push on it to start your phone and try to lock your phone in another way to avoid the boot loop. Hope it will help.

Try to use root browser,enable root browsing, find the hosts file and add a # and a space after it. Save it and reboot your device. In some cases you need to clear data and cache.

TouchWiz is the interface used by Samsung, they're including it in their stock ROMs. "TouchWiz home" and "TouchWiz easy home" are the launchers, supplied with the TouchWiz interface. The "TouchWiz home" is used by default and is more feature-rich. "TouchWiz easy home" is more basic, made for easier use. It's themed like this:

Sometimes getting into recovery takes several tries of the "Vol Up + Home + Power" combination and is pretty frustrating. I know that for me, I generally hit the vol up and home button together, then while holding those hit power for a second and then let go again before hitting power again a few times and letting go of the original combination and doing ...

Do you have an external sdcard in your device? If so, remove it and try again. When sdcards start throwing errors and have to remap sectors it kills their performance. As this is usually an indicator for a dying sdcard i would suggest to backup any important data you have on it.

Batteries labeled NFC come with the NFC antenna, without which it would be impossible for the NFC chip on the device to operate.

To add to Dean's answer, I also had a number of Android apps that drained my battery by using Sync all day long. The apps listed in your Accounts tab under Settings all sync through Google Services. By using Tasker, I scheduled Sync to run every hour for 3 minutes. My battery life improved significantly after that. Here is the recipe for the Tasker profile: ...

Before it flickered did you see any green light or something. I suspect the screen is cracked. Experienced it twice on my S3. Try to enter download mode, if nothing shows up there too then it probably is screen issue and not some kernel screw up. Also look for some cracks, in my case it was really tough to notice the cracks that caused a large hole in my ...

According to this site, 4.4.2 is the only Kit Kat version for the Galaxy S3 on Sprint's network. It is entirely possible that the update you received was just a lesser update to update some additional problems or issues that the phone might have had. The problem is, you usually can't receive OTA updates while rooted, so there is also a chance that it ...

Framaroot, if you are running 4.2.2 or lower. I don't know about anything for 4.3 and up which works reliably on most devices.
