    Welcome to Android Forums!:)
    I moved this thread into the Galaxy S3 forum so that others with the same phone can help you with this problem.

    Same problem here.
    No sound from the speakers, and microphone is not working on phone calls.
    Everything else seems to work.

    SIM-card is intact.

    Yes, my s3 is 3 days old and now will ring in or out but no sound heard either end then disconnects the call by itself. This is starting to look like a common problem.
    Do not know if thats a good or bad thing.

    Earphones did not make any difference.
    What is strange, is that when you let the call stay active for about a 10 sec + +, the antenna signal completely drops when you hang up. Signal do come back after some seconds.

    Same problem here. New phone, had it for 4,5 days. The problem stared yesterday, before that, I didn't have any problems. Now if someone calls me, I accept but there is no sound. I can't hear them. Have to RESTART to make a phone call. Every time. This is not a communication device, this is a frustration device. I'll wait if a solution pops up here, before taking it to the shop tomorrow. If this is what S3 is all about I want my money back.

    Same problem here as Phoneuser28. But restarting the phone doesn't solve anything.

    I have some problems with my Galaxy S3. There is a lock function in the Video Player that disables all the video functions available so that users can watch videos without any disruptions, meaning the "last", "pause" and "next button" are not available. This function is also available in Galaxy S2 and Galaxy Note etc. However, there are sometimes when I clicks onto the lock button, instead of disabling the functions, the phone gets into locked mode, and I have to unlock the phone again to get back into the video player. I don't have this problem with S2 and the Note. It's really frustrating when I have to unlock the phone again just to watch the video. Can anyone help me out?? Thanks :(

    I am facing the same issue as well. The phone works with head phone. I have observed that the stock video player is more likely to cause the problem especially when switching to the floating window mode. Funny thing is, the sound will usually come back on its own after some random time has elapsed.

    I came across a thread in another forum which suggested to run the LCD test.
    1. Dial *#0*#
    2. Select "Speaker"

    If melody plays, then its a software problem and your speaker is fine. However, there is no definitive way to fix the problem. Some have suggested that resetting to factory settings worked, while others have had luck simply by pushing the headphone pin in and out about 5 or 6 times.

    I am suspecting that it is most likely to do with a bug code that enables/disables the speaker sound when the headphone is inserted/removed. Hope Samsung comes with a speedy fix cause its damn annoying!!!

    Hello!
    I'm brazilian, just bought my S3 for 10 days now... On day 5 it started to lose connections during calls, and after that completely loses its signal. I called on the shop and they told me to change the sim card. So I did, but nothing happened. If I dial a number the phone makes no sound - I don't hear ringing or anything , the phone then appears to connect , but again no sound. After about 5 seconds the phone disconnects and the Signal drops out (shows a circle with a line through it) for about 20-30 seconds before coming back (copied it from another post because it is exactly the SAME THING!).
    I'm pretty upset and annoyed :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:. I'm physician, really need my phone to work...
    If anyone have a tip for solving the problem i'd be very glad...
    Tks... and sorry for poor english! :)

    All my Android phone have always had that feature of browsing the web and talking on the phone at the same time. I've tried doing that with the galaxy s3 and it won't let me. As soon as I make a call it will disconnect me from my 4g. Does anyone know if there a setting we can change to have both features run at the same time?

    well folks...this happens when we buy " new born gadgets":) ...we are the "crash test dummies"
    as i stated above, my phone doesn't want to play sounds from time to time....now i don't have to factory reset the phone each time...but to make about 3-5 restarts...still anoying:((
    for me it's clearely a soft problem...as when it happens my music player for example won't even start...
    i ask again...;does anyone know a solution to this....or we have to wait a major update for ICS?

    Have any of you tried to update to the latest firmware? Always advisable as it will be one of the first questions asked by a support team.

    Hi guys, im also facing the same problem. This is really frustrating as only a factory reset worked for me. Apart from the audio problem my phone became very sluggish suddenly, animations didnt work and even the screen does not respond to touches. Is there a fix for this??

    Looks like this is a common issue. Any progress or suggestions?

    Just got my phone back from service (it's fun when the first thing you do after buying a rather expensive product is to send it to service), and got the following report:
    -Replaced motherboard
    -Updated software
    -Re-partitoned
    -Reset phone
    -Function tested


    As far as I know, there was no newer firmware/software uptates at the time I sent it to service.
    A malfunctioned motherboard on the other hand? Seems as a fair reason to me.
    I would guess there is a bad series of mother boards out there, and this problem will append on several units. Too bad

    I worked in a Nokia service Centre and software update was done on every phone as standard but it could just just mean reinstalling existing software. Standard text used
