    Hi all,

    my affair with S3 was going on in full swing and we had exchanged vows not to separate from each other, when the unexpected happened! :(

    Left it charging last night, as always, and in the morning found a dead, still S3

    Tried an alternate fully charged battery, recovery key combination (vol down+home+power), removed micro SD card, SIM, tried USB charging, changed cables, took off battery couple of times etc in all permutations but no sign of life has appeared

    All suggestions welcome!!

    Thanks in advance!

    To the store with it for a replacement. Your carrier may or may not be able to get any data off of it so hopefully you had turned on backup.
