    Hi there been reading all about the s3 power up issues. my carrier is Verizon, each time they push a forced update the phone performance and features and links to bluetooth and wifi became flaky. I complained to Verizon who basically told me its Samsung not them .. lol so anyway yet another forced update yesterday and now I have a $600.00 hunk of silicone that does nothing.
    I cannot start it no matter what buttons I push .
    did anyone here find a solution that did not involve getting a new phone ?

    S3 = sucks 3x

    Welcome to Android Central! What a pain. Have you tried holding the Power button down for a good 15 seconds or so? Or done a battery pull (keeping it out for 10 seconds), then reinserting? How about trying to boot into Recovery Mode using these steps? http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...2-s3-tab2.html
