    I just received an S3, that I purchased on ebay. It arrived with the battery and a SIM card installed. I press the Power button and after a few seconds, it does a little vibrate. And then nothing else.

    I plug a usb into it, but no Battery on Display, to indicate the life or charge.

    Bad Phone?
    Bad Battery?

    This is my first S3. I have an S, which shows a battery on the front, if powered off and charging; so, I expected the same with this S3.

    Welcome to Android Central! The first thing to try is a new battery. The S3 is a very old phone, and if this was the original battery, it's also very old and likely dead or on its last legs.
