Syrus, 13 Nov 2012If you don't like iphone UI & closed system, then you won't probably like Win8 phone eithe... moreAs you may remember. My HD2 was a productivity tool isn't no different with the SIII for me.
As soon as I got it I came here for help to get everything to sync currently with outlook. (Have to use a paid app called moffice to get the syncing and the level of editing I want for outlook. )
And yes I'm big user of Skype. Very happy that I don't have to wait till I get home to video chat with friends out of the country now.
I'M a PC gamer playing games on a phone not going to cut it.
Got the Xbox 360 slim as a gift from my wife. And it has a layer of dust on it.
The eye candy I like in WP8 is how FB is integrated into contact. Let's you see update without always having to check an app. The FB home screen widget for this phone is limited in content and contact integration of facebook is also limited.
As for the iPhone there is no home screen widgets of any kind. You have to go in a app for every kind of data you want.
WP8 also has garim something I still have to use my HD2 for because Android doesn't have Garmin.
You know my long list of don't likes in wp7 but most have been address in WP8. But I want to see it in the wild to know if it lives up to my needs and expectations.
As for changing ROMs on my phone I used Odin3 (no rooting needed) been trying JB UK & Brazil beta versions.
Now I'm on the official JB for my region via OTA.
did that by replacing my provider ROM with my region unlocked ics using odin3. Cleared my cache partition and hard reset. Then I got the OTA JB update for my region but the factory unlocked version.
I can still restore my provider ROM using my s/n and kies.
jayK, 13 Nov 2012How are people upgrading their S3 in India to Jeely Bean..
I check in my fone daily and i can... moreIndia SIII have the jellybean update you need to connect to a PC with kies
Do you have a factory unlocked phone?
Or did you get a SIII for a next region?
Your version 4.0.4 SIII should have a baseband version I9300XXBLH1.
and it would upgrade to 4.1.1 with baseband version I9300XXDLJ5.
If you have a provider branded phone be angry with your provider.
when will JB be available in Nepal? I daily check update in my S3 but found "no update available".
How are people upgrading their S3 in India to Jeely Bean..
I check in my fone daily and i can not see any update available. I don't have kies so cn nt update with it..
has anyone received the update OTA through software update in settings menu??
I guess samsung will nt release the update in India..
Stupid Company.. Stupid Promises.. I guess samsung is forcing us to sell this fone to get jelly bean in india..

I have an S3. Can someone tell me how to install or transfer applications to an SD card. Because when you download applications, there is no option where to save it.

TJ, 12 Nov 2012i would like to know how to put the sound for sms notification! Im struglling without successOpen Messaging, click the left capacitive touch key just beside the Home button.
Select Settings,scroll down to Notification settings then click on Select ringtone.
I am waiting for the next generation, Galaxy s4, I do like it. But it should be changed its case to aluminum and design primary camera as same as the front one (rumor images).
The next update from Samsung will be Android 4.1.2, featuring Multi-window as in the Note II. Stay tuned for this high class tec:)

If u are into MS office, xbox & Skype(ms bought), then win phone is the way to go.
Btw, how did u instal custom rom in ur S3 without rooting your ph?

As for password guy I did tell him look it up in the pdf because it's there.
I have had my HD2 stolen twice and had to use tracking software to hunt the thief down. So I'm not going to be overly helpful when someone I taking about formatting to remove passwords.
