    Can anyone tell me why my S3 constantly wants to buffer while watching You tube? I has done it since day one I've updated to Jelly Bean and still the same.

    check to make sure you aren't trying to view the videos in HD.... Just to the left of the progress bar there is a toggle to turn it off... IF that is off and the videos are HD then it is a network issue... Are you watching via WiFI, 3G, or 4G?

    I will check on the HD but it does it in all 3 wifi, 4g and 3g. I went from being a 2 time iphone user to the S3 and love it except this issue.

    What kind of speed do you see when on WiFi, 4g and 3g? Not all cell towers are created equal.
