Default 11 things to do after unboxing samsung galaxy s3 and other mobiles

First 11 basic things to do after unboxing the mobile
1. Sign in with google account if you have already one or make a new one. If you want to restore settings of previous android mobile to S3, then sign in beginning ( you need internet to sign in)
2. Fully charge the mobile. Although with new batteries, the problem of battery memory is not there but still better to follow the advice or manual. fully charge and discharge few times
3. In contacts, bring contacts from old mobile. One simple way is if your old contacts are already synchrozed with google, then you can simply download from google all the contactsin S3 or save old contacts as file like CSV etc and then import to new
4. Go to market--> menu --> my applications and update if available for existing application
5. Buy good capacity MicroSD card. S3 supports upto 64 Gb card. In order to avoid cluttering of phone internal memory, go to camera settings and change storage from phone to SD card so that photos and movies are stored on card
6. Down load Samsung kies on your desk top and synchronized in order to keep backup of your contacts, sms, photos, movies etc. Alternatively you can use kies air to do wireless synchronization or other backup programs
7. Make account with drop box as S3 buyers can get 50 GB free for two years intead of 5 Gb. After you will recieve a mail from dropbox asking for few steps to increase your storage. If you don't know what dropbox is, google it
8. If you have mobile net, then set the data limit as per your subscription. Go to setting-->data usage--> make it on and set the monthly data limit to avoid overpayment
9. For added security put screen lock. You can put face or voice lock (low security but more fancy) or password/pin lock(strong security). Go to settings and security
10. Put good antivirus if you are planning to download lot of applicationsespecially from unsecured places
11. Subscribe to services like samsungdive or androidlost etc in case of misplacing or loosing yourmobile, you can find it online
You can find these tips on youtube as well with putting same title in search in case, you wanna review again
