Theres nothing big happening that's why! Everyone motivated to has tried JB now. Multi window is okay but not write home to your mom great, and now we are all sitting back wondering if we should have waited for Note 2's instead. Lol.

Haven't mucked around with my S3 for weeks now. Its rock solid. Onwards and upwards with just using it now!

My S3 just sits on the bookcase unloved and collecting dust ever since I got my Lumia 920 :P

Talking about collecting dust, that's the one thing that sorta bugs me about my S3. I have the blue one and that wee gap between the glass and the case collects dust. The gap is tiny maybe 1/4 of a mm but just big enough to be a pain.

Not sure if it would even be noticeable on the white one?

think there was a discussion about it just after it was released. I have a blue one but never really looked or noticed so maybe it isn't there or I should continue not looking :).

I've been in 2 minds about Note 2 but thinking its only because it is latest release so will most likely hang out till they release specs for S4, I see there are already rumours floating around.

It must be sealed though because it doesn't seem to get under the glass and cause any problems. I've tried a really fine artists paint brush and even a needle but no good.

I'm going to try a ball of blu-tak tomorrow, see if that manages to lift it but really, I can live with it.

Blutak does not work man. None worked, even with air compressor and air duster won't even do any good either.
It is underneath the glass edge. Not in between if you look carefully

I have a Vodafone s3 running on 2degrees and I can't seem to get video calling to work? Have tried video calling another s3 on the 2degrees network. Both devices come up "connection failed. Cannot make video call".
Would this be due to my device not having correct settings for 2degrees.. if so what settings need changing and how do I change them?

Thanks for any help.

Video calling requires no settings to be changed on the handset both devices need to be attached to the 3G network

Video calling is a 64k CSD connection and does not use the packet switch network

Thanks for yr help John. Still can't get it to work on either device in the house. Both on 3g.. always fails on both.

Any other ideas?

Installed wanamlite yesterday as i was getting horrible battery life (about 16hours) and weird things happening with my S3, it would just randomly unlock and be sitting at the home screen, i installed several programs to try and pinpoint this but couldn't work out what was doing it. Also as stated the battery life was horrible, heaps of wakelocks etc were killing the batt, tried disabling different things but to no avail. I was running one of the first stable versions of omega JB.
First impressions of wanamlite, wow! its like having a new phone again, i hadn't realised how slow it had gotten. Also its been 12 hours since it came off the charger and ive dropped 11% battery :)
