    I bought one of the USB OTG cables on Amazon that is advertised to work for the GS3. I connect it and nothing happens. My friend has a Sprint GS3 and he gets a notification about the USB being connected when I tried it on his phone. Is this an issue with Verizon phones? Any way to get this working? Thanks for the help.

    You'd try your friend's cable on your phone

    The message isn't showed for long, maybe you missed it ... aah ... and did you connect a thumb drive to the cable? Just the USB OTG cable without a USB device connected won't give you a notification.

    The thumb drive should be shown as USB storage on your file manager.

    Sorry to have to correct you, but the phone does (briefly) show a notification when the USB-on-the-go cable (by itself) is connected.

    Sorry, looks like you got a POS - the original Samsung cable that I got works fine on my Verizon S3 (4.1.2, MF1) [although there's not enough juice to power a USB hard drive]

    Well ... my phone does not, but it isn't a Samsung.
    Thanks for the clarification that the S3 acts this way

    One of these USB OTG Y-cables or a powered USB hub doesn't work with an USB HD ?

    It very well may - I was just pointing out that it doesn't work by itself.
    Thanks for the suggestions.
