Ravi, 20 Nov 2013Can anyone please help me how to get the e-mail notifications working on S3? 4.1.2 JB @ Ravi
Open the email app, press the left soft button and select 'Settings', and then 'General preferences'. Scroll down and tick the box 'Email notifications' and the ringtone you wish.
Dee™, 20 Nov 2013I'm still using S3 but I would love to have Not3@ Dee™
"Not3" Was that a typing error (Anthonyitis), or your poor attempt at humour?

Move on to what?
As you know, I purchased a S4 because it was offered to me at a price I couldn't resist. That went well until I upgraded the Firmware to v4.3 and found out that it came loaded with Spyware. That had to go. Luckily I sold it for more than I paid for it.
Then I tried a Nexus 5. I'm not even going to talk about that! 'Underwhelmed' is the best description I can think of. Sold that for what I paid for it.
So move on to what? What phone are YOU using now?
i recently bought this phone. now i can not instal any app. like fb and watapp, it gives me the error of 403 and says that unfortunatels gmail not in use.

Not the same recycled rubbish with a twist. Looking to see what htc has to offer in 2014. if not I'll be waiting again till 2015.
For me it not about having a new device...... it's about feeling a major improvement in functionality and purpose.

BTW to the people that ran out and upgraded to 4.3, you may want to follow the same instructions in the post below. Who knows, It may actually help with the lack of stability you are experiencing. If It does, please come back and say. As I have not tested 4.3 my self yet.
