Do you have Samsung Kies installed? Samsung phones don't use the generic Google-provided driver for MTP in Windows, but if you install the correct Kies version it'll also load the relevant driver. This post on XDA-forums explains more about the cause, just don't forget to substitute the Samsung driver for the Google one when following the steps. If you ...

Typical, I post the question and then immediately find a solution (of sorts). One way to resolve it is to go into Device Management, right click on "Google Galaxy Nexus ADB Interface", select "Uninstall" and make sure that the tickbox for removing the drivers is selected. Once that has completed, install Samsung Kies (ugh) and you'll find that it is now ...

looks like this pda file is only flashing recovery and cache image. So you should have a custom recovery now(probably CWM recovery). If this is the case download supersu from here: http://download.chainfire.eu/396/SuperSU/ and push it onto your device. After this boot into recovery(probably vol up + home + power) and install this supersu update zip. ...

Have you set this application as the default SMS client, given it notification access or administrative rights? I'd suggest look into those issues as it may (although the it should not be) a factor in the issue. If none of the above are mentioned, and you're only able to uninstall updates, try disabling, deleting set directory then uninstalling. It should ...

Just try to blow compressed air into the ear piece. Dust is covering the sensor.

Repair/reinstall the OS again using Samsung Kies. Read this F.A.Q before doing so. Note: You don't lose any personal/user data on doing this.

FIrst of all check your internal storage for space I know you have checked your internal storage and SD card its has GB's of Space but this time check only the internal storage I am sure you must be lacking internal storage because apps download at the internal storage.

In most cases installing a file manager from play store such as FileCommander, ESFileExplorer etc. and then using its search feature or exploring the directories yourself will find the file you're looking for if it exists in the memory.

You can also call them and then delete the call before it begins to dial.

I hope you don't care about all your data because I don't think there is a way to retrieve it. Perhaps people with more knowledge than me know how (perhaps using ADB?). However, if you want to resurrect your phone, you need to follow this guide: http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/update-galaxy-s3-i9300xxugnh4-android-4-3-stock-firmware-1468061 This guide below is a ...

I think you need to restore your phone (factory reset).This may be due to auto running of an application which is consuming your memory .

Not 100% sure, but I think... only if totally necessary, after trying all other answers... unless you just don't care... Try to wipe the phone so that you go through first boot and setup again, and it should use GPS to dialing prefix.

If you do not disable but unistall system ROM apps,resetting wot make any difference. You need to download a stock rom (try sammobile) and flash it via odin.this is the best method i recommend.get the DBT(germany) rom as it has no bloatware/ Also, avoid using KIES to update. Really untrustworthy.

If you've rooted your device, the quick and easy way I found was to get Font Installer and search the internet for Arial Unicode MS.ttf Here's a test page that contains Unicode characters not supported by Android's default font set: http://users.otenet.gr/~gmcr/bible/LK.htm The first verse should show: Επειδήπερ πολλοί επεχείρησαν αναταξασθαι διήγηση περί ...

If you have another memory card try it out and see if it works. If it does then your first memory card may be corrupt or damaged. If the second memory card doesn't work either then it's possible there is a problem with your SD card slot on the phone. If the problem is the SD card slot then you may need to look into a warranty replacement for the phone, if ...

Copy a ROM from your PC to your phone. Flash the ROM in recovery. You may have to reinstall the Samsung drivers on your PC. Don't worry about this. You still have recovery intact. Keep yourself a SD card with a ROM and GApps on it. *Always Do a Backup*

From SM: Go to Settings → My Device → Home Screen Mode and select "Standard Mode", then hit "Apply". Next, go to Settings → My device → Lock screen. All will be active now.

This is probably a bug in the custom ROM you've installed. You should report it to the developer of the ROM, and either wait for it to be fixed in an update, or use a different ROM.

Stock roms hardly comes with enhanced options. IMO you should switch back to Cyanogen based ROMS or any other custom roms. I prefer/rely Cyano as I am using it past 3 years and has lots of revealed options which is good and bad as well. Currently I own a OnePlus One with cyanogen 11S. Alternatively you can root your phone and look for any such app that will ...

To use this method you need to update your S3 to 4.1.1 Jelly Bean which was released on December 3, 2013 by Samsung: dial the following keys *#197328640# Main Menu > 1 UMTS > 1 Debug Screen > [8] Phone Control > [6] Network Lock > Options [3]Perso SHA256 OFF After choosing this option, wait about 30 seconds, then go back one step by pressing the Menu ...

You could try an app to do this, Samsung have removed/changed some of the Dialer codes on the Galaxy range. GalaxSim Unlock seems to do what you want, it checks if SIM locked, and offers an in-app purchase to SIM unlock. Please note I have not tested this app. You could also pop in a SIM from a friend's device that is on another network and that should ...

I had exactly the same problem. The only way I found to 'fix' it was to uninstall all updates back to factory defaults. So far that seems to have done the trick.

I have seen that when I had the Android wear app installed from the Google Play store. Check your app drawer and uninstall the app if it is there. You might have to restart the phone after. I can't remember if that is necessary or not, probably not.

Well I don't think there is such an app. You either send message to yourself (Viber, Skype etc.) and your parents answers to you (but basically to themself at the same time) or they sign up to something (perhaps you could sign them up, without having them do it). I have an idea, but that's kinda "original" (aka stupid): use something like TeamViewer to ...

You need to enable lockscreen widgets, to allow the shortcuts to be shown. Go to Settings > My device > Lock Screen and tick the box "Multiple widgets" The actual layout can change from device to device slightly, but below will give you a rough guide to how to find them. Now click on "Lock screen widgets and turn on the button "Favourite apps ...

You have to ensure that you have space in the internal memory of your phone, and not just on SD card. You can see it on Settings->Storage. If you have internal space, I recommend you install and run Ccleaner app. Otherwise, a radical solution will be a reset in your device. Don't forget to create a backup first!

Neither of those will help you. The log in Android isn't written to disk: it's stored in a ring buffer in memory, and is lost when the device reboots.

So I tried @Sjharrison's way to press home,power and volume button at the same time to put phone in recovery mode. And it gives me the option to safeboot my cell phone and I chose to delete the cache files. It automatically reboot and show progress on automatically installation. Then my cell phone works as before. Kudos on @Sjharrison!

USB tethering is for sharing the phone's internet connection with the PC. You need to turn this off. When you connect the USB cable, tap the USB notification in the notification drawer, and select Media device (MTP).
