    I upgraded to Android 4.1 JB yesterday and somehow the phone is not charging while it is on. The charging status indicator (the little lightning sign inside the battery level indicator) comes on but the battery level does not go up and it is not charging!
    I dont know what can be done ? Can i revert back to the ICS somehow until I wait till the next update?

    I was so excited when i got the update today morning for my s3. After downloading i found none of the major features were there. This is extremely horrible from samsung. Does anyone have any idea when we could get a fixed update?

    Wish I’d bought the iPhone5 now. Updates on iPhones are hassle-free and instant. Absolutely pathetic from Samsung India!
