    Galaxy S3

    OK, i called verizon tech support this afternoon, to ask him bout the issues with S3, and he told me he was not finding any known issues!(which i know thats not true, read the forums) I am getting no voice on the phone after 10minute call... while it still says connected! i am wondering anyone else use a extender? R they worth it? I pretty much use my cell for home use too...

    I use an extender, it helps a lot. The newer ones have data also, mine only voice.

    I flashed the newer firmware, but can't say it helped, all my radios kinda suck to. Flashed back again.

    Well maybe i will try one... They offered to give me $100 off reg. price!I really dont want to give up the S3 but i cant stand the connection issues... I get bout -97 DB at my house and my GF Razr gets -90 or tad less.. thats at my house mainly where i am at.. How does the extender do on your internet? does it bog it down a whole lot? I have comcast 25MBPS down

    I have an extender as well. I don't notice any difference to my other computers on the network. I did improve my cell signal. Been very happy.

    Is the issue your s3 or the area you are in. I ask because I am using this information to decide what will be my next device.

    During that was you unable to use your data. I ask because had that happen on my att s3 and was unable to make calls or data for 20 minutes. By that time i had already called vzw on a land line to turn my phone back on.

    I am in a good area at my house.. Some times i loose network connection then it comes back on... I get often! I did ask my friend S. cal he has the same on ATT as well. but he said no issues noted, so that makes me believe that it could be my S3.. I am gonna give the extender a try... I still have until Oct. 23rd to exchange for another S3 or another phone! I bout -102 to -96 DB to where my GF Razr is bout -90 to -83 DB at my house..
