    My apologies in advance if this in the wrong place. I'm new here.

    I would like to enable USB Debugging on a Galaxy S III that I bought from Virgin Mobile. The manual says to go to Settings -> Developer Options, but there is no Developer Options under Settings on my phone.

    Does Virgin Mobile disable the Developer Options on the phones it sells? Any suggestions how I can do this?

    Thanks in advance for any info.

    Open settings>About Device>Build Number. Click on that a bunch of times (5 or 10,) and it should enable developer options.

    No carrier hides this option. It was deliberately hidden away by Google on and after Android build 4.2.2 (I believe) for security reasons.
