Hi guys,

So I picked up my Blue S3 and overall I'm quite liking it but I am new to andriod so wondring if anyone can solve a few bugbears I have currently.

1. Email client, I use exchange activesync for emails which is connected and working fine, however the way I manage my mail is that I have my inbox then under my inbox I have a people folder, inside that people flder i have named folders (Darrin, Luke, Mark etc) and i have exhange email rules that put emails from said people straight into those folders. The Issue I have is that there is no way to know I have aan email unless I go into each folder to check manually, the numbers on th subfolders seem to be a count of the total emails in the folder not the unread emails in the folders which is weird? Also the main screen icon doesnt update to say there is a new email unless it goes into the actual inbox... :(

2. I for the life of me cannot get emails to notify but make no sound or vibration. I have "Email Notification" ticked and have "Ringtone" set to Silent in the email settings, so it makes no noise but it still vibrates which is annoying and still wakes me up if i get emails in the middle of the night :( My friens S2 has a 3rd option under "ringtone" that says "Vibrate setting" but my telecome S3 seems to not have this option.

Thanks
Larno

simon14: Hi guys,

My new S3 has an intermittent issue.

Sometimes when I make or receive a call, the other person can't hear me. I can hear them fine and signal strength is excellent.

Has anyone else had this problem? Any ideas what to do?


I only get that when I take a call whilst connected to my car stereo (annoying enough even in that scenario). Try turning off noise cancellation, that has fixed this bug in previous Samsung handsets.


Got a quick link to where that is located? (I don't have my S3 yet)


If you hit settings in the phone app there are numerous settings for calling - noise cancellation on/off, even effects and equaliser settings!

networkn: How do you set your default device in the play store, and also how do you remove apps you never want to install again from the my apps area in the play store? I want to just have the ones I actually use in there now. I have about 12 pages of them and each new device I want to load apps onto is a pain.


Simply uninstalled the app from your phone and then next time you set up your phone it won't be downloading again.
Another way is to skip the Google account setup until later. Then manually installing those apps you want and do not set to automatic updating. That is what I did and never again need to suffer the apps I never use lol


When I log into the play store on my desktop I have every bit of software ever installed to any of my 9 android devices. I want to remove 80% of them permanently (most of them are on NONE of my 9 devices any longer).

You can't remove these apps from the list.  This is something that a lot of people have complained about but Google don't seem interested in fixing this as they don't see it as a problem.  There is a rumour that the app developers don't want people to have the ability to remove unwanted apps from this list as they hope that people will see their app again and maybe reinstall it.

Yeah that is one of the stupid things about play store, seems you have those apps tied to your account for life. Currently at least.

Hmm well at least that would make sense I guess. 

It's still a pain since I don't sync my new devices with google, I go into the google play store on the desktop and select each one and specify a device and it pushes down. 

Would be nice to be able to TAG specific ones and then group then.

I'm finding similar things out slowly, it seems android 4.0 has increased functionality in the built in email client. I have installed the light flow app on recomendation in this thread, about $2.50 which takes over notification handling, im not sure about mail that your exchange server delivers into subfolders as i get them in my inbox and move myself, but it has separate control for sound vrs vibrate in email settings!

In the email client if you select the account then select "show all folders" you can see more info, you might also like to try a different client if you cant get what you want. Although my works exchange server is pretty fussy about security, i havnt tried.

I have a strange thing happening. I have WiFI enabled, and I am downloading in range of the Wifi, but it SEEMS to be using my data connection regardless. If I turn OFF Wifi and back on again it seems to use Wifi!

Possibly a firmware/kernel bug - I'd update to one of the newer releases.

If you need a download-mode jig ASAP, you're welcome to borrow mine!  Works with SGS I/II/III.  I also have a SIM cutter available (Dunedin) - happy to post either to you at your cost.

XXALF2 seems to be the latest:

You'll need to flash these via Odin of course.

My flip case arrived from Adriatica, so I guess they are now in stock

Very good, adds about 0.5mm to the case overall, but now feels a lot more solid than before. Guess it has to be firmer so the hinge doesn't flex

OVerall great quality

Press and hold the home and power button together.  When you release the buttons the screen shot is taken.
