    Question Just a quick question

    Hi everyone new user here I mean't to find a forum for my S3 but now I actually need one! I bought my Samsung Galaxy S3 from Vodafone here in Ireland in August 2012. On the 6th of January 2013 I woke up to find I was late for college as my alarm hadn't went off. Upon trying to check my phone as my blue light was flashing (notification light) I noticed the phone was not responding to me pressing the home button. I then tried to wake the phone up with the power button to no avail. Next I took the battery out and since then it has been dead. After a few hours googling and researching the problem it appears I have the "SGS3 Sudden Death problem" I have contacted the Samsung Service Centre on the 8th of January 2013 and was given reference numbers etc. I'm still waiting on the phone to be collected but I don't know if they are sending something out for it to be collected in or if they are sending somebody to collect it all I know is that it's the 12th and it's still here with me. My question is how long do Samsung have the phone for once they receive it.

    Thanks to anyone who can assist

    Also I know it's not the battery or charger as my sister has the same phone and from trying her battery in mine and it not working and trying my battery in her and it showing 100% I know it's not them

    Thanks again

    Nah nothing at all, it's not doing anything at all no vibration no red light while on charge, when connected to laptop no lights nor is it recognized by the laptop or my desktop. So it's basically a brick.

    Have you tried to boot into recovery. Really just throwing out options so you aren't without a phone.

    If Samsung is dealing with it directly they should have emailed you a postage receipt of some sort. It would be your responsibility to package it and send it using that tag they sent you.... I don't know who the big package carrier in Ireland would be... Here in the U.S. Samsung emails you a UPS slip you have to print and attach to the package then drop it at a drop off..... I would also contact Vodafone and see if it is something their warranty will replace... They may just be able to swap it out for you as it is a known defect that Samsung has admitted to....

    I find over here it's always much easier to contact the carrier instead of the manufacturer. Verizon has overnight shipping for replacements, so I'd contact Vodafone first.
