Re: Galaxy S3 issues
Welcome to Android Central! Unfortunately, it sounds like you have a bad phone. You can check with your wireless carrier to see if the IMEI has been blacklisted (which means it was probably stolen at some point). The serial number of a bunch of zeros just screams out that the phone has been heavily tampered with. Can you contact the eBay seller? There should be some kind of buyer protection with eBay. You may also want to notify eBay of some suspicion that the seller was selling a possibly stolen item.
