    Salve a tutti, scusate se Vi scrivo ma ho comprato da poco su Ebay uno Smartphone Galaxy S3 pero non riesco ad accenderlo. In venditore non mi risponde più ed io sono un pò preoccupata. Mi compare non appena lo metto in carica la scritta “Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Prese select recovety mode in Kies & tra gain”. Ho seguito le istruzioni di accenssione ma non c’e verso di far scomparire questa schermata. Siete così gentili di aiutarmi a risolvere questo problema? Leggevo le vostre istruzioni di sopra ma io non riesco ad accenderlo propro per capire quale è il numero di Firmware.
    Vi prego gentilmente di farmi da guida. Non sonbo neanche molto esperta in informatica ma sono corraggiosa e fiduciosa.
    Ringraziando anticipatamente
    Eleonora B
