Poor Signal on 2 Degrees anyway
Far too big for avarage joe blogs


yes thats about it, returning to WHS


Funny dude....stick it on XT and it will fly!


yes it will fly on XT seeing theres a tower all of .5 of a km away ( infact less as i can see it 6 blocks from my back door ) and the next vodafone tower is 50kms away....


Approx where are you? I find it difficult to believe that the nearest Vodafone cell is 50km away


Waimate in the south island 50kms from timaru ok there is a site up at studholme but i still get drop outs in some rooms of the house

oxnsox: Handcent SMS and K9 (mail client) allow you to define notification LED colour etc


I'm using Handcent and have configured my led to go green when I get a text, otherwise it's blue for an email. Hmmm, maybe I should tweak it for a missed call. Still haven't installed lightflow, but if it's going to impact on battery life I might give it a miss.

I think maybe he means the extra data that some games like Gameloft ones have to download. As far as I am aware there is no easy way to transfer them to the external SD

MurrayM: I use 3G Watchdog to keep track of my 3G data usage. ?Is this still needed or is there something built-in that lets me see that I've used up 70% of my monthly allowance and if I keep going at this rate I'll have used 120% by the end of my monthly billing cycle?


ICS has an inbuilt data manager and you can set alerts.

ajobbins: First full day of using my new S3. I'm down to 43% battery after 5 hours off the charger. Granted I've been playing with it a bit - but not constantly. Have turned off all the motion and face detection stuff but no have SIP internet calling on for incoming - but so far not at all impressed with the battery life for what I am doing.


Saw your tweet about that today... I'm sitting on 50% after 12hrs.. All motions on, no face detection tho. wifi and data on all day, 2.5 hrs screen time.

I'm wondering if it's your SIP that's doing it or a bad battery.

Have you looked in settings> battery to see what's been using it all?

Looks like most of my apps including the gameloft ones are all installing to the SD card....not sure why, is that a Samsung feature?

Looks like by default most apps are installing data to the SD Cards? the following checked, and have almost 95% of the data on the SD, with the other few MB on the system druve:
Hot Pursuit
Nova 3
DeadSpace
GTA3

It must be internal SD. Have you checked usage on your external? I can't install any apps on my external =/
