    Default Soft keys (home & back) don't light up

    Soft keys (home & back) don't light up. They work, they just don't light. Anyone else experience this?

    I just ordered the GS3 unlocked on eBay. The soft keys don't light up or work. Any advice?

    Yeah, get eBay to force the seller to give you a refund or working device.
