    I just got a new Samsung S3 and was wondering how you can plug it into your TV? I know that apple phones have some type of adapter for it but does the S3 have the same thing? One of my friend told me to get a MHL cable but I don

    For to plug your S3 into your HDMI TV you'd need a Samsung MHL adapter for the S3.
    Standard MHL adapters that work with the S2 (and all other phones which have MHL ability) won't work with the S3.

    Im disgusted with samsung.
    Its bad enough that they made the s3 need its own non-universal adaptor but my genuine samsung one only survived about a month!
    Gona get the tv dongle i think..

  8. I'd be interested to get this working...when a video is running on the S3 I press menu and get 'share via' option, none of which look like a TV with arrows?? Wi-Fi direct has arrows?

    Help!?
