    My first S3 went bad right away and Verizon send me a brand new one.

    My second one lasted a few weeks and then the email app froze every time I opened it. I spent hours on the phone with Verizon Level 2 support and Samsung level 3. They finally agreed my phone was bad.

    Third phone is factory reconditioned. I am not happy about that, but it looks brand new, and after having it almost 24 hours (knock on wood, poo poo and all that other superstition stuff) it appears OK, HOWEVER, it will not serach on the calendar (a result of the lawsuit), S Voice is worthless.

    The verdict is still out for me on this phone.

    Because outside of rare situations (often when an unusually large number replacements of the same phone have already been given, each of which experienced issues), Verizon replaces a defective device with another of the same device.

    yeah i also had lots of connection issues with voice and no network connection.... I finally took it back and exchanged back for the razr( i know backwards but connection more important than features) but much better connection thus far... Still gonna mark my calls just for the heck of it!

    Well, after reading your comments on the GS3, I think I'll just stick to my Rezound.

    Keep in mind that like with most devices, these negative comments you're reading are the exception to the rule. Most people have no major issues with their S3, or you'd really be hearing about it since millions upon millions have been sold around the world. Most people come to these forums and post when they have a problem, not when everything is running great. :)
