    I have to point out to you that upgrading from 4.1.2 to 4.3 you will not lose your IMEI when the EFS changes. But you could lose your network connection so the phone will not work. (Losing the network connection if the sim is not correctly unlocked). There is no software currently available to unlock the sim for 4.3

    Once you are on 4.3 you cannot downgrade because of the EFS changes !!!

    These are the screenshots from the phone info app. My model is GT - I9305 so should I put this up in Kies instead of I9300?
    Thanks

    After you have done post #18 do this yourself and post back the screenshot

    You do not need to have your phone turned on or plugged in to the computer, just take the battery out until you have finished and Screenshot please

    1, remove battery from the phone and DO NOT PUT BACK IN for the remainder of these instructions
    2, underneath the battery on the phone is the imei# and serial#
    3, you need the serial# and leave the battery out for this task
    4, now start Kies that is on your P.C and make sure you have a internet connection
    5, from the menu bar go to Tools and select firmware upgrade and initialization
    6, enter the model GT-I9300 (make sure its CAPITALS GT-I)
    7, enter serial# (CAPITALS again)
    8, press OK to initalize (dont worry you should not have a battery in )
    9, this will now give you the string = Initialised version PDA:*** / PHONE:*** / CSC:*** (***) this is what we want to see
    10, now take a screenshot and post back here.
