    I'm having problems making outbound calls. Even though I might have 3-4 bars the call won't connect. I have to dial the number a couple times for it to work. Anyone have a solution?

    Hi brianm109,

    Try and power off the phone, pull them sim card wait a few minutes, then put it back in and power up.

    I am also going to move this to the s3 forum for more support.

    My lady experienced this on her T-Mobile device, she couldn't receive or make calls.

    Turned out to be the SIM had went bad.

    It's definitely worth going to a store to have it checked out.
