    New To Android? This is the thread for you!!

    First of all I would like to say welcome to Galaxy S3 Forum and welcome to ANDROID
    I'm getting this thread together because there are more and more people coming for iOS and BB and it is very difficult to just jump right in and figure everything out, so my hope is that this will lend a helping hand.

    like to give a special shout out to Abe21599 as i stole quite a few of your links and layout

    As explained by one of our own androiders

    NOTE: Before Rooting or making any mods to your phone make sure that the mod, Rom or theme is for your version of phone (ie: GSM 19300, verizon D2vzw,AT&T,Sprint,T-Mobile or U.S. Cellular. If you flash a rom or do a mod using for the wrong phone version you could end up with a BRICK. so please be careful and READ FIRST
