    My brother has it and he really likes it. Ima leave it up to them, they are coming from flip phones so even the Atrix HD at 50 bucks would be nice for them.

    If possible make the rep notate the account that your parents must get a free / new replacement for free (not returned). After the sale double check the account just to make sure, not sure I'd they'd do this but it's worth a shot.

    I think it is a great phone as well I just hate HTC UI. I would buy one to play with but not to use as my every day phone

    The newest one needs a few tweets but other than the multitasking its fine and I doubt they will be doing much multitasking! and I read that the att one x will get a price drop sunday making it a even better buy!

    I haven't messed around with htc much lately, but if the snappyness of the design is any indication of what they have to offer, i may look into it.

    Mine just broke from the smallest fall I've ever had a phone experience... I laid down on my driveway to look under my car, my 2 week old S3 slid out of my pocket,maybe an inch to the ground while I was on my back, picked it up and the screen was shattered. Unbelievable. Had a case on order, but too late for that now. Want to raise a stink to let Verizon and Samsung know this is obviously an issue. I baby this phone other than this one miss-hap.

    Could it be that reinforced glass is no good at this size? How is the "notes" durability?

    Of course but there has got to be something we/I/you can do - these screens are ****e and so why should pay $200 only to have to deal with this whole thing again in another week when the new one shatters.

    This is what I would do http://galaxys3root.com/galaxy-s3-root/how-to-replace-broken-lcd-screen-on-galaxy-s3/ cause I fix my own stuff but I don't own a S3. Just been reading up on them cause my parents each got one but so far no issues I hope. Me I own Moto so that's all I got to say but I feel for the ones that have issues.
