It's possible to reset the default in the applications menu under settings.That reminds me a real problem I see with android is once you change the dialer, default browser, home screen app etc there is no entry in settings to change them back. You have to rely on some other thing to change the setting.
You go to whatever the current default application is and you tap "Clear Defaults." I just tried it for my browser and it worked fine.What application defaults do I wipe to get the choice for default browser? Home screen? I had to add an app to switch home screens.
Samsung has already fixed the USSD/MMI code execution issue for Galaxy S III devices. "We would like to assure customers that the recent security issue affecting the Galaxy S III has already been addressed in a software update," Samsung said Tuesday in a statement via e-mail. "We believe this issue was isolated to early production devices, and devices currently available are not affected by this issue. To ensure customers are fully protected, Samsung advises checking for software updates through the 'Settings: About device: Software update' menu. We are in the process of evaluating other Galaxy models."
