I got the batteryless, backless S3 from VZW and a Hyperion Extended Battery and cover from Amazon on Friday.

Got it all together and running with one slight problem. The S-Voice feature did not produce any sound when "Galaxy" replied. That meant the I could not really do any dialing with my bluetooth headset.

Spent over an hour with about 5 reps at my local VZW store trying to fix it. They checked with VZW Tech Support and were told that Samsung was aware of the problem and were working on a fix that is to come out at the end of the month. Not a happy camper here.

Well this morning I was messing with the thing and low and behold "Galaxy" began to talk to me and I could actually hear her. All is well now and I could not be happier with the phone. Yes it cost me about $50 when you consider the extended battery and some screen savers but I would have bought those anyway.

Just keeping my fingers crossed that the S3 will continue to work for the next year or so til my contract runs out.
