    Im in Costa Rica on vacation and I just upgraded my wifes S3 in order to unlock the GSM capabilities of the phone. I placed a Costa Rican sim card in the phone and voice calls work great. I have paid for a data plan on the SIM card, but I can not get data to work.

    I was told by the phone company here to set my APN to 'kolbi3g'. Unfortunately the phone is not rooted and there is no option to to add an APN. I believe Verizon is blocking this.

    Is there any way to get around this? The doesnt seem to be an 'easy' way to root the phone, Im on vacation and do not want to brick it. The Jellybean (4.1.1) was just released so it seems to still be pretty touchy on rooting it.

    Any help?

    Sidenote- I have a rooted RAZR MAXX, and voice and data work great

    Thank you

    OK, I have successfully rooted the phone.... and I STILL can not change the APN!!! Arrrggghhhh

    When I go to More settings -->Mobile Networks --> APNs and I click the menu button all I get is "Reset to default"

    Help!

    When you say touchy on rooting it, what do mean?
