I upgraded to the Samsung SIII yesterday.
Can you please help me, I called Customer Care to transfer the number from my normal SIM to the micro SIM. The normal SIM is cut off but the micro SIM has no service.
I dont know who else to ask for help at the moment, please get my micro SIM online so I can continue to have Vodafone service.
If you do call, you have to use the landline number, I have no Vodafone service.

Ouch! Don't you hate it when that happens.
After I got my S3 I gave my old iPhone to my daughter and went into a store to swap her sim for a micro sim and the new sim was up and running very quickly.
Good luck and enjoy the phone,

Do you have your contacts on a computer? The easiest way is to get the contacts into gmail and sync them from there. Or you can use the awful Samsung Kies software to sync with Outlook. I have an Exchange account and contacts and calendar sync from there.
Don't know about the Samsung account - set up one but not sure what it is for.

Ann, if you can convert your contacts to a .vfile then you should be able to transfer this file to your phone

From your Nokia - Export them to a .vcf file and copy this to your PC.
Log into your Gmail account, open contacts and click on the "More" Tab.
Choose import contacts from file, browse to the .vcf file.
All your Contacts will now auto-sync to the Phone.
Go to Samsung.com/uk and log into your account. From there you can alter your profile and change your email address etc.
NB. The Samsung account helps to push Firmware updates to your phone OTA and also offers some remote security features such as phone tracking, locking etc.

Can you log out or sign out of the Samsung account on the Phone?
Your best bet would be to create a new account using your correct email address...?
Click on the create a samsung account link under the sign in option.

bluetooth, got to settings, bluetooth, turn on, press menu, then visible time out, set that (5 minutes for me), then scan to find devices then pair.

I thought at first that files had to be put into the ringtones folder in memory but I have now found out that any music track can be assigned as a ringtone by pressing and holding on the track to bring up a menu.

Don't worry tho the vodafone shop can sort it instant
