    s3 problems

    3 weeks ago I got my s3 it would not connect to kies it went back and was reloaded with software version 4.0.4. I live in South Africa.
    a week ago I lost my contacts phone numbers which were replaced with the number 8. I contacted samsung s.a. as I could not connect to kies again and I got an MMI code invalid message, they suggested I reload kies which I did. It does not connect to my phone it keeps trying for hours. Has anyone any answers?

    Yes....... do what most of us have done and abandon Kies except for backing up your data (even then, there are better methods)
    Some tips:
    1. Have your Contacts saved to your Gmail account, then you cannot lose them, and they will transfer to another android phone easily.
    2. If your phone is not locked to a network, then install your firmware with Odin.
    Android version 4.1.2 is excellent and can be installed on an unlocked S3 now.
