    Anyone had this problem with their Galaxy s3?



    The @@@@@@@@@@@@@ signs at the bottom are annoying.

    Seeing as they aren't rolling any updates out does anyone have a fix for this.

    No, there are a few older posts describing the same issue - the carrier can do whatever they want.

    I suppose you could load the equivalent firmware from a different carrier, since your SIM card should handle all of the call/data configuration anyway, but is it really worth the trouble?

    Think I've sussed it. Not actually the handset's fault or the update as much. I think it is the sim card. I tried my wife's sim in my phone and it went back to normal and mine in hers and the problem showed up on her handset. Same phone same update etc. So I'm gonna request a new sim and take it from there.

    And your wife is also on EE? I'd be interested in the outcome of your SIM card replacement...

    Yeah both on EE both same handsets except hers is the white one, swapped sims and done the same on her phone but mine was fine with her sim in. Has to be something on the sim card.

    Yeah new sim card sorted the problem out, not a fault of the phone.
