Freefaller, 24 Oct 2012I reached the decision today that I can no longer remain loyal to Samsung.
Regular readers he... moreHere in Australia I think, I am the first one to get update to JB according to Samsung official statement shown that Australia is still Pending...
I bought my phone outright from HK stock...I love my phone that way cos I trust any network supply to have their third party software in my phone!
I read the Galaxy S III is limited to 1000 phone contacts is that the case.
This is a very good device. I thought it would be too big for me but then I went and checked it out, it's actually very easy to handle with the round edges. It's also very light and fun to type on. It fits in my pocket very easy. If you don't know which one to choose between the HTC One X, Galaxy S3 or the iPhone 5. Remember, iPhone is much more expensive. GS3's price went down dramatically since it came out as well. And it doesn't look like the iPhone 5 is even better than the Galaxy S3 (Except for a brighter screen and easier to handle with one hand).
I reached the decision today that I can no longer remain loyal to Samsung.
Regular readers here will know that I have always loved everything Samsung, but that is no longer the case. Why? Because Samsung has not been loyal to me. I am talking about the Jelly Bean update.
Here in the Uk, O2 has had the update for 2 days now, Vodafone is getting it now, but T-Mobile and Orange haven't got it.
Some of you will comment that it is because different carriers insist on their own version of the Firmware, but what irks me is that users with unbranded phones won't be getting the update until November, despite the fact that the International version was released weeks ago. I know that because I flashed my phone as soon as the ROM appeared on the Internet; it has the English UK language on it, and it works perfectly. That being the case, then it should have been released in the UK at the same time.
Well, in that case I will be looking elsewhere in the future for my next phone. If that is what Samsung thinks of it's loyal customers then they don't deserve my loyalty to them.
the best so far only phone in comparison is the note 2 i guess but the s3 has more pixels but then the note has more ram and a lil faster both beats iphone anyways well done sammy. (:
Dee, 24 Oct 2012I am now have JB officially on my phone! No more waiting, yeah!Hooray Dee Dee boy, no more whining.
AnonD-76985, 24 Oct 2012can any one please help me to choose what smartphone should i buy samsung galaxy s3 or iphone ... moreThat means us choosing YOUR own personnel smartfone...It should be you who chooses...Write down all the things that are most important to YOU honestly like camera,robustness,card slot then pick a suitable phone...Picking the top of the range does not mean its good for you and your wallet..The only other tip is todays smartfones only last 6-14 hrs at full blast so they all need charging nightly..
Dee, 24 Oct 2012Thank. I've just noticed that, Apps Info on the Homescreen removed but instead it put in Apps ... moreYes now to uninstall an app
You have to go into the all apps window.
And pick menu and you will see uninstall there.
Makes uninstalling more than 1 app at the same time faster.
But how often do you really do that?
What are you talking about with the holding the home key?
Holding my home key still takes me to the task manager where I can swipe things off the screen if I want to close them. Or from in there you can tap the pie chart to go the list of…
Anthony, 16 Oct 2012You asked what is different in jelly bean… Well here is my list after using JB for some weeks... moreThank. I've just noticed that, Apps Info on the Homescreen removed but instead it put in Apps Edite function and Home key function also have been changed as well! I love those 2 features! For example if I wanted to uninstall a certain App, I just hold it and move to App info and uninstall it from there. The HomeKey feature is when I hold it down it will show Task manager and Preview activities with remove function . Now I have to do different way!

AnonD-76871, 24 Oct 2012I tried again, it's the same problem, it says to verify and enter the serial code again. I kno... moreyes the S/N located under the bar code.
enter the characters aster ":" and stop at the space there is (then you see 4 numbers XX.XX)

from the first day you got your phone could Kies ever see your ROM version and say it is up to date or did you get the other message?
