Samsung firmware update will fix sudden death issue with the Galaxy S III
posted by Alan F. / Jan 02, 2013, 4:25 PM
There is no word on when Samsung will push out the update, but we're a strong believer in the theory that sudden death should be reserved for the NFL and NHL. Samsung spokeswoman Anne ter Braaky says that if you have a unit that is not working, take it to a Samsung repair center. While the motherboard is covered under the warranty, the firmware still needs to be updated.
If you are one of the unlucky ones whose Samsung Galaxy S III has crossed over, Samsung says not to worry, the company will take care of you.

Which bug is wore, bug which can be fixed with update or bug which can't be fixed with update? At least they don't say "You're holding it wrong!"...

mate get you head out your ass, no company cares. if they can find a way to squeeze cash out of you while keeping you in the mindset that they care they will. they didnt do this fix for you, they did it to retrieve there image and keep people from switching to competition. if they had left this then there reputation would decline and someone else would be there to pick up those who want to switch all about money so again head remove it from ass please

My sgs3 is still under the care of samsung service center in Thailand. Exactly January 01, 2013 my phone experienced a sudden death syndrome. so far almost of my colleague sgs3 phone are working well. They're also worried that they may experience the same thing. Good thing samsung still gives me hope. (my sgs3 just only 4 mo.old).
