Thanks for your response. I took the phone to a tech repair center and the tech was able to duplicate the problem. I had really brought it in for a "Sim Card Removed" error I have suddenly started getting. He couldn't find anything wrong with the Sim card or the Sim tray, but because of the Home key not answering the calls, he replaced my phone. Now, the Home key works to ...

I set up the option to have the *home* button answer calls, but it doesn't work. It has worked once or twice in the past, but no more. The setting is accessed through settings; system; accessibility; answering/ending calls; answering key. Anyone else have the same problem or know a work-around?

Wow - not sure how my original question ended up, after several responses, in the Apple forum. Thanks for letting me know.

Hi Delia ~ My phone is the Galaxy S3. The setting is in settings; system; accessibility; answering/ending calls; answering key.

Hey Delia ~ Thanks for responding! I figured out what was wrong - I had hidden the *messages* app because I wasn't paying for any messaging plan, not realizing I still needed it to see my AT&T free messages. That issue is now resolved. Got any ideas about my other issue? The *home* button almost never can be used to answer calls, after I set that option up under settings/a...

For some unknown reason. I am not receiving the AT&T texts when I dial *3282# for viewing my data usage. I don't have an AT&T texting plan, but I am set up to receive AT&T notifications. It doesn't work :-( I receive nothing. I was told there is a voice number you can call to hear your data usage. Anyone know what it is? Thanks! [Subject edited to reflect new topic]

Yes, you need a SIM card to upgrade, but I would NOT recommend using Kies. I used the SIM from my Galaxy S3 and did it OTA through my data plan (not WiFi). Kies saw my phone, but never connected. I spent 8 hours trying do it through Kies, then I just deleted the whole program after 4 installs and uninstalls. To my surprise, after I had wiped Kies off my computer, when I r...

Maavalous, thanks for that information, but I stay away from Kies! I have no interest in downloading that huge dabaucle of a program on to my new computer. I have it hidden on my phone too. I actually just ordered a micro SIM adapter (actually they come as 4) and they'll be here by Tuesday. Hopefully they are of high enough quality (for the $1.85 I paid) for me to use reg...

Someone had the brilliant idea to buy a micro SIM adapter to use interchangeably between my GS2 (standard SIM) and GS3 (Micro SIM). I know I can get cheap ones, but they're not made well and can easily catch on the pins and bend them. I want a good one where the SIM *snaps* into place and it is flush all around. Germany makes one that is sold on the UK Amazon, but to buy ...

NormChar, I am not sure either, but I assume it's because I didn't have a contract since 2007 and they made me sign a new 2-year contract. I guess it's akin to the people who have gotten a credit on service for all or part of the three months it has taken AT&T to offer a remedy. It was not offered outright. I was offered all the same alternatives as everybody else, but be...

For those of you who received a replacement refurbished GS2, have you swapped out your SIM to use it in your original GS2 to update it? Then you'd have two working phones and you could sell one to recoup some of what you paid for service, and didn't receive, for the last three months. I'd really like to be able to apply the update to my GS2 because I use it for most of my...

Okay, so Maavalous posted some incredible battery stats. Does anybody else get anything close to that off the AT&T stock battery? You charge it to 100% and use it like Maavalous does (including some calls, some WiFi, some GPS, some web surfing, some weather checking - sounds like a lot of usage to me!!) and you still have 9% battery left 119 hours (5 days!!) later....I'm ...
