battery time
for using only as a PHONE, this thing is GREAT......
18, yes, i said EIGHTEEN days since last charge, and i still
had 23% left.. loaded with well over 100 apps.
i dont know how they do it, but just the battery time is
worth $300...

I'm very glad that it worked for you! I was super excited when I finally seen that the writer said "OK" during the handshake stage & even more so when I seen "PASS" show up.

Has anyone got this device working on MetroPCS? I cannot get it to work to save my life.

I just helped a friend of mine get a phone (not s3 pro) on metro, you have to go into a store. Tell them you want to activate the device on their service, and they have to manually put the IMEI into their system. Once that is done reboot phone with Sim in and you should be good.

We have two imei's so be sure to give them the one for the slot you will be using, and be prepared metro charges to activate any phone on their Network, $15 to $18.
Unlike att or tmo where you can just pop in Sim into any phone, metro makes everyone "register" IMEI before being allowed on their Network

Cool I'll give that a try and see if it works. I already have Metro but swapping the SIM out from my Huawei device to the S3 isn't working. Hopefully the IMEI is the issue and it will work.

My carrier charges $25 upgrade/activation in-store. I call it a "clerk setup fee" 'cause they won't hand over the phone even if you tell them you know how to set up the new phone.

So, got the phone got the OTA and got the Metro issue worked out. Now about Root? Has anyone been successful in rooting without it affecting the device? And most important, is there a way to get the damn Google Search widget off of the stock home screen? I haven't been able to.

My advices is backup nvram. Nvcfg using twrp so any mishaps while flashing custom rom. U could just flash the nvram, nvcfg to get back your imei.

I finally decided to give up on the S3 Pro and went back to my trusty Lenovo P2.
There were just too many issues with the phone like bad mobile/wifi reception, wifi dropping issues, touchscreen issues and dissappointing camera app. I don't even trust some of the bloatware stock system apps that come with the phone, like the suspiciously large flashlight app, and several hidden ones. On top of that the screen cracked on the first fall it took, from about 1m.
About the only thing I did like is how easy it was to unlock and flash the phone, and install treble images.
