A possible issue is your build.prop "Model number." Most of the SGS3s have a model number purely of the Samsung nomenclature, e.g. SGH-I747, SGH-T999, etc.

However, for AT&T, they decided to be different, and use: "SAMSUNG-SGH-I747"

Quick way to find out is System Settings > About phone (all the way at the bottom). It will list the Model number there.

Are you rooted? I will assume you are since you are in the rooted forum.

It's actually a simple fix. Use any file explorer that does root modifications (like ES File Explorer, Root Explorer, etc.). Navigate to /system. There is a file in this directory called "build.prop". Edit this file. There should be a line that states:

ro.product.model=<PhoneModelHere>

Change the phone model to "SAMSUNG-SGH-I747" and reboot. Don't forget to reboot! Then retry your Gameloft games.

The reason I suggest this is because I had the exact same problem. I changed my ROM, and the ro.product.model changed. Gameloft games that I had backed up, when I went to play them, started giving me "get a refund" errors. Did some Googling, changed the model, and suddenly they worked.

If you aren't rooted and you can't play the games, its likely because your device isn't supported.

Can you give us any more details?

Have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling

Not stock. As in, not TouchWiz. As in, have you ever flashed another version of Android?

He's not rooted, so you can safely assume he's on the stock ROM

That is not the AT&T version, but rather the international version. It should theoretically work on AT&T, giving you speeds up to H+ (AT&T's 4G).

For some apparent reason, gameloft restricts the international version. See these people's frustrations:

Gameloft Forums

Unfortunately, this seems to be a gameloft restriction, and not an Android problem. Perhaps Googling some solutions may provide work arounds, such as downloading the APK elsewhere. But be careful, because this method may incur downloading illegal and/or unpaid versions, especially if you have not actually paid for the game.
