I do the same, I've created a playlist of about 1000 songs and made it available offline. What's good is if your managing your songs in the browser, add new songs to your offline playlist and they all automatically go offline on your phone without touching it, very clever

Default yet another disappointed convert

Hello I am a IPhone convert that bought this phone and returned it but I would consider buying another one if my questions could be answered.

I found that the stock browser and Dolphin browsers crashed consistently on my sports sites that use flash for live updating. A example of this is sportsline.com/live scoring

I found that the screen was very unresponsive when I was using the browser to fill out a form for a example a address where I would click on a box enter data..etc.

The streaming HD video was of far inferior quality to the IPhones 4S's retinal display. The example I used to demonstrate this was watching Band of Brothers on HBO Go. The HD on the HTC one x get blended and blurry around the edges during action scenes and I felt the coloring was off throughout. Such a beautiful screen wasted in my opinion but based on the fact that the HTC has higher resolution did not make sense.

After using Xlingo and Google voice I found that voice recognition was light years inferior to siri. A lot of people scoff at this but being able to send messages to people quickly while I am zooming through my day without unlocking my screen with the press of a button is a fantastic tool.

Also whats up with AT&Ts bloatware? The whole point of buying this phone was to allow customization and I am stuck with all these AT&T apps that are taking up a significant part of my phones storage. Out of the box I had less than 10G available.

I think the video play back is pretty good, on my iPhone often it would be blurry and hard to see in nfl streaming. While I can't test that I did stream fast 5 from hbo and it looked good. Sure there was some pixilation at times, but that was mainly due to me not having the best cell signal where I live The screen looks pretty amazing, the iPhone screen was good, but smaller so it could get away with not being super detailed and you couldn't tell.

Default HTC One-x issues, Same notification flash blink as the iPhone

I like my HTC, but am slightly niggled by certain issues...

1.. Doesn't have the mini flash that you get when you receive an SMS on the iPhone, anyone know of an app that does this properly? I've downloaded a few and all of them don't work.

2.. All the apps that I've downloaded to change my notification LED colour don't work...

3.. Where can i get the same short subtle notification sounds that you get on the iPhone?

4.. Doesn't run as smooth as the iPhone..

5.. Yes SIRI does perform loads better than the android equivalents :-(

6.. Can't get same apps as you can on iPhone, namely 'newsstand' for magazines and newspapers, even Metro UK's e-edition android app isn't as good.

I've dismissed the iPhone for so long and didn't want to get one, I know this phone has got the power to beat the iPhone but can't seem to acheive this...

Sorry for putting everything in to one.. Can anyone supply tips (if any)?
NB. My HTC One-x isn't AT&T its British.

I just converted from iPhone to droid through my purchase of a HTC One XL and am somewhat disappointed thus far.

Some advice would be great.

Apps:

Best syncing application capable of syncing everything from music and photos to contacts and notes?

Best news feed?

Best sports feed (NBA, EPL, UEFA CL, Boxing, Tennis, Golf)

Best twitter app?

Best AntiVirus app?

Best voice activation app?

Best browser?


Maintenance / Functionality:

Best way to conserve memory and increase speed and reliability?

Thanks.

Hi Robandis! I'll try to take a stab a few of your points here:

I'm not sure what you mean by "mini flash," do you mean the popup notification that allows you to read the SMS when it comes in? If so, try Handcent, Go SMS, SMS Popup, etc., which all offer this function to varying degrees of customization. Also, if you select the "productivity" lockscreen style under "Personalize" in either settings or your app drawer, it can display texts and emails and calendar events on your lockscreen.

I'm pretty sure that's a hardware thing, I think we only have a tri-color LED (Red, Orange, and Green), and as such those colors might not be called upon (by those apps' code) using the same color codes as a true multi-color LED would (but a developer may be better equipped to discuss that).

You won't find the exact same ones anywhere (but Apple, since they own those sounds, and yes they are big enough jerks that no one in their right minds would rip them off and distribute the goodies), but you can probably find some that are pretty darn close. I haven't rooted and dove into the development world yet so I am not sure of good places/users to try to get find or get ahold of for the sounds packagers; but I would recommend that you try cruising these forums and more developmentally active ones like XDA or Rootzwiki paying attention to the theme threads (more so than the actual root stuff- it does not have to go hand-in-hand), since the themers have extracted and re-packaged sound suites from a lot of devices, or can do so much easier than can you or I- and if you ask nicely they could probably set you up with something not copyrighted that would sound close. It really doesn't matter what device the particular theme is from, since you just want the sound file itself . There are a few apps in the Play store under various "Ringtone maker" and similar monikers that would allow you to take a similar tone and crop/shorten it, and make your own notification tone from it, so that may be a more feasible solution- or download pre-packaged ones from the Play store (open the play store and search for "Iphone 4S SMS Free" by "COOLGAME" for example. Always pay attention to the reviews, like COOLGAME's 30-ringtone app is ranked pretty highly (4 stars), some are not.

I have a lot less lag when browsing the internet and switching between tasks than my sister's iPhone 4, do you have a lot of widgets running, or a live wallpaper ("stutter" is a known issue with the Tegra version of the phone using live wallpapers)? I have to say, I am incredibly impressed with the speed and responsiveness of mine (but then again I remember the G1 days when Android's cache would fill up and the RAM would disappear), but it is a different model (S4 dual-core processor). This can also be a pretty subjective area, so not much anyone could say other than known issues/fixes would really help here...

Siri is more conversational and so "natural," but Android's more command-based style has been around a while (beginning in earnest with the Android 2.2 "Froyo" update in June 2010, and there are rumors that Google has plans for a major overhaul to this in the very near future-bigger than Android (across multiple, and as of yet unrevealed Google products)- called "project Majel." I haven't played with Siri, so I really can't comment very much on it, but I can send texts, emails, record notes to myself, set appointments, open some apps, and search the internet all from the microphone in the search widget on the homescreen (no third-party app, it is part of Google's "Voice Search" app). Plus, with "S-voice" and some of the industry heavy-hitters having apps like "DragonSpeak" (Nuance) and "Vlingo Labs (beta)," it is coming (maybe before Google's integration)...

That is a problem with the developers targeting one platform to develop for, then getting locked into just planning for that platform (especially if the app takes off and becomes hungry for updates). I think we are not very far away from another evil as well- Android is now more popular than iOS (but not more populous yet); how long before Apple and/or Google begin to make developers of promising apps sign exclusivity agreements? I wouldn't be surprised to see/hear that this is already in place...

I agree, but if the iPhone does everything you want a phone to do, and the One X doesn't, that's okay- no one can fault you for wanting to be happy with your purchase, so it is okay to get a iPhone.

But this is the problem that has plagued Linux since its inception- a lack of understanding what it is, and a lack of unified marketing pre-launch (to build hype) cripples it out of the gate. Think back to 2007 and the iPhone and the hype surrounding it, where did the success for it come from? The iPhone was successful because of the iPod. I was working at an electronics retailer at the time when the first iPod came out; and it was roughly parallel to the Android phone launches of today- there was a lot of geek hype over a unification of the crazy and scattered mp3 player market, of a quality product (most of the previous brands were rather delicate; didn't sync well with computers of any kind, and ended up just making people more angry with irregular battery life- I know, I had an RCA Lyra which sadly was the best one until iPod came along because you could drag-and-drop and not be locked into using RealPlayer, but it was built WAY cheaper than an iPod and the battery maybe would last an hour and a half). The first iPod was expensive and looked a lot less flashy than the other brands, and honestly it took some convincing to sell the first two generations of it. But it slowly became huge, and the iPod Touch (the real testing ground for Apple for the iPhone) came out, and again required some convincing- but there was already the iOS "cult" forming that thought it was the most amazing thing ever (I thought it was cool but was very skeptical about its durability) so there was less convincing required. That built into huge techie excitement over the launch of the iPhone- Apple had already crossed the hump of consumer acceptance because of the reputation it had built with the iPods, and has rode that wave even to today (literally, WWDC is today). Apple coupled that with getting a major carrier (AT&T ) to sign on for it. Compare that narrative to the launch of Android in September (for the OS-October for the device itself) 2008, whereupon the OHA could only get the 4th largest carrier interested (T-mobile), to very little fanfare outside of Linux and Techie circles. It had no "testing" or proving ground, the phone itself was kind of clunky and "ugly" (although I loved that phone), and just like the first release of iPod touch and iPhone, it had some things it didn't do at all, and a few more it didn't do well- but the blogosphere was less forgiving because it was playing "catch-up" and was always in iOS's shadow. Android didn't really see a real marketing campaign until a year later, when Verizon launched the Motorola " 'Droid," and that's when Android's numbers really started to grow. But then, it became like all Linux Distros, there were different specializations of it all over the place, and to untrained eyes and those who don't know what they are doing- that is formidable (the horrendous "fragmentation" we hear so much about- yet ironically there are many small developers who have issues with it, but they do not get the press-time; only complaints do). So in short, the launches of both devices are like surfing; the iPhone was paddled out by the iPod Touch and had a wave ready to ride when it launched; while android was just sort of dropped off on the beach and took a year to paddle out to depth. Ironically, now the table have reversed, and depending on what actually comes out of today's WWDC , Apple might be copying Android for the 2nd year in a row (if the maps/navigation is what the leaks suggest it is), which one could argue is a sign of who is actually catching up to whom...

In addition, the lasting issue that plagues Android/Linux when compared to Proprietary/Apple is that of control and support. Android isn't owned by Google, it is owned by the Open Handset Alliance (OHA), of which Google is a major player and houses the project, and supplies developers/code towards it. But there are other players, and a constraint to avoid encroaching on privately owned bits of code ("proprietary" code), without protecting your own work in a likewise manner (Open source licensing -usually-depends only on giving credit for the code used, and limits on material gain from it). Apple on the other hand directly owns all of iOS (well, other than the parts and style elements they have stolen or licensed- but that's another matter), so they can control all elements of the software (and would rather put up with criticism than allow changes to it) and make gaurentees about things like app-compatibility, and performance under certain circumstances. They can use this to hide "flubs" like apps crashing (without notifying you, the user- things are programmed to just go black and then dump you back to the homescreen inexplicably, or re-launch if it is a core app apparently), or deliver watered-down multi-tasking to give the illusion of power performance without a hit to battery life. But has this control made iOS more stable or less fragmented than Android? No, it really hasn't, and there are infographics that illustrate this, but it is not convenient to publicize (whether Apple PR or Tech Media), so it goes under-stated and public perception continues that one is better than the other, or "more reliable" than the other... Public perception is that we have these "known" and "accepted' options (iPhone, Windows, Other Name Brands), that have a lot of resources and a need to focus on aesthetics of their products (to be able to keep selling them), and that all other contenders and options (Linux/Android) need to be just as polished, just as refined, and (ironically) not too different so that it is convenient to hop back and forth. What public perception fails to realize however is that it really isn't the other contenders that are keeping their products from being clones of the famous name brands, it is those name brands being sue-happy and being granted broad-sweeping patents that keeps those contenders from delivering identical functionality- and forcing them to get creative. I have found that 9 times out of 10, getting creative has enabled them to find (subjectively) "better" options to deliver functionality, but sadly that isn't always the case (look at getting your music away from Apple and iTunes for example). Android (with the recent ruling in the Oracle lawsuit) has become a name brand now, but still hasn't quite escaped its past of being in the shadows, and so still has to fight some underdog battles, but given the patent portfolios of a few of the Android manufacturers, I look for Apple to be a lot less of an aggressive contender as the mobile world moves into a "beyond phone" 4G experience.

Just thoughts, and sorry that got long-winded, but suffice it to say that there is a history and a reason why Android doesn't have a lot of the little things iOS does (mostly due to copy right and lawsuits), and you have a right to be happy with your purchase- Android or iPhone. The trouble is we can't (at this point) pick-and-choose our hardware, software, and software elements, but Android does make that much more possible than iOS ever will.

Despite the huge amounts of horsepower jammed into these Android handsets, they just don't seem to have the responsiveness of my iPhone or Lumia - especially when you start to work really fast.
Keyboards are not as good as the iphone's - but I may get used to that. It could just be muscle memory.

It's annoying that I got my music over from itunes (isyncer - brilliant) but the way the One X catalogues the albums is a bit backward. If a track from an album has a guest artist on it, HTC's music app classes it as a separate album. Annoying and messy.

I have seen better battery life today (day three) but I've had to lower the screen brightness right down.

Overall, I'm happy with the One X. It's certainly the first android phone I've had that I've actually grown to be fond of - the others were just 'tools'.

The others: Hero, Desire, Galaxy S2, Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus, Dell Streak.

Love your points (and your mature attitude towards iOS) - but it would be much easier to read your comments if you split them up into paragraphs.

If they weren't worth reading, I wouldn't bother to comment.

Yeah sorry- I'm at work and typing it out on the phone in landscape, it gets hard to keep track of grammer, punctuation, and flow in that little 4 line box...

Spacing is different, and you actually have real estate now! Swiping is addictive on the HTC keyboard, it might help. Also, try out different keyboard apps like swiftkey or some customizable ones, HTC's old one was spaced similar to iOS'...

I agree wholeheartedly

Hmm, yeah, this is still an LCD panel, albeit an advanced one, so brightness can wipe out a battery... I had mine on navigation on battery for two hours yesterday and it dropped about 30%, I was impressed with that actually. Keep an eye on your apps too, I've ever seen good ones forget to shut down a process and drain the battery before...

Excellent! I've been bitten by the little green bugdroid stone way back, but each new generation of devices just amazes me.

I have a feeling Apple just have the keyboard thing down. I've tried lots, even iPhone clone keyboards.
The extra space should be a help, but proves not to be.

Most likely, the watered down version of Cocoa iOS runs on is a little more removed from JAVA than Android's dalvik based system is, and may not be subject to the same constraints.

Follow Diane Hackborn on Google plus, she is an Android engineer and drops awesome little tidbits about why things are the way they are every so often... Dalvik has a limitation on open "windows" and screen refreshes and she had an awesome post about how they worked around that Android's launcher (homescreen with scrolling wallpapers)

Whilst that may be the reason, it does little to help me when I'm waiting on the system to keep up, or prodding an unresponsive screen.....

I follow Diane - she's very informative to say the least.

Default HTC Sync Manager

I just got my HTC One X this week. I love it. However, I have tried to install and run HTC Sync Manager several times and I can't get it to work. I've installed and uninstalled on my personal laptop and also installed on my work laptop and it won't recognize my phone in either case. It seems like it could sync my iTunes library pretty smoothly and I don't really want to use Google player and eat up all my data allotment. Any ideas?

Hands down the best keyboard I'd say is the "ICS KEYBOARD" it will be the 1st in the results. Try that. You'll never go back.

I had the same problem. Only I was at least able to connect to it the first couple of days. Thereafter I couldn't connect at all; it would just hang on the "Connecting..." stage forever.

Were you able to connect to it at any time?

Have you installed any apps before trying to connect?

I eventually took mine back for replacement. However, upon doing a factory data reset in store it was then able to connect.

I've tried that one. It's the best of a pretty lame bunch in my opinion.

I'm now giving swift key another go. So many people rave about it, maybe I just need to give it some time. I'm focussing on the prediction side this time - I just can't go as fast on any of these keyboards as I could on my iPhone keyboard.

Overall, I'm missing the speed and consistency of my iPhone. For all it's power and cores, the One X still feels gloomy at times. I've had to use Nova Launcher with all the frill switched off to get an experience that can properly keep up with me.

So much to like about the phone, and it's easily the best Android I've ever used - but I still feel it's lacking....

Yeah, the euro version is Tegra... my AT&T (S4) one doesn't lag at all in the keyboard, I think nVidia has some issues with the firmware for the Tegra or something...

Default large .m4a apple lossless itunes library

Hi,

I just converted from an iphone 3gs to the one x and have a large .m4a apple lossless library (cd to .m4a without drm protection). So far i love the display on the phone and i'm getting around to lossless audio but I can't seem to get the ox to play the files or find any sources on the subject. HTC makes it real easy to get the files onto the ox with the updated sync manager or just by file copy.

I can convert all the files to flac or wma lossless but only as a last resort.

Does the ox play .m4a lossless?

No, still not able to connect to either computer. I think it did connect for about 15 seconds at one point but other than that, nothing. Since I'm so new at this phone I hate to have to do a factory reset and loose everything I've done so far and have to start over. But, if that is the only way I may have to just bite the bullet. Thanks for the info!

I had every version of the iPhone except 4S, skipped that one and then jumped to the One X because I was tired of waiting on Apple to get on the "4G" wagon and I wasn't going to buy the 4S when the 5 was/is (supposedly) right around the corner.

A couple things:

I got this on launch day, so I expected bugs, but here's a couple things I've noticed and maybe someone can explain if they're a phone problem, OS/Android problem...

1. Wifi does not drop connections to networks, even though I'm MILES away. So I'll get to work, and it'll still be "connected" to my home network. With the iPhone, it automatically switched. Switching Wifi off and on again to sync to a new network is annoying.

2. SMS/MMS messages do not always send. I replaced the default program with Handcent SMS, so I at least can tell when a message doesn't send because the processing icon will sit there spinning.

3. I don't know what's with this phone, but I've pocket dialed 911 3 times now. BAD. I added Call Confirm to add another layer of protection against this, but sweet jesus! Is there possibly another lock screen configuration out there that I can use?

4. Wifi connection strength. I believe this is related to the known issue. At work, no problems, full strength. At home? Not so much, even if I'm within 5 ft of the router. 1 floor below or above? Forget about it, in most cases.

5. Can't stream music through blue tooth in my car, 2008 Audi A4. Phone connects, I can talk to people, but can't do music. I suspect it may be the car, not the phone, but any one have any experience with this? Tips? Tricks?

Overall, I'm still happy with the switch. Even the smaller amount of storage space, I realized that I don't need 30 GB of music on my phone, I'll never get through it all. I've moved to smaller amounts of music that I can easily rotate on and off the phone when I get new stuff.

Not got long so will take the first one just now.

Go to settings, WiFi, press menu then choose advanced. You now have the option to auto disconnect WiFi. Try that to see if it helps.

Tried that out, did not see that option in there. I've got:

Network Notification
Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep
Wi-Fi frequency band
Best Wi-Fi performance
MAC Address
Ip address
DLNA auto-IP

I've got the international gsm version (in UK) so my menu looks like this:



Hope that image link works - not done it on the app before!

Yeah, mine is the US version. Head scratcher as to why it would not be included in all versions of the phone.

Hi All,

This is my first Android phone and lots to learn about it. Overall I am very satisfied coming from a non android phone and the big screen is just brilliant. The camera and Video features also seems quite good compared to my previous phone. Read most of the info on this thread, big thanks for that, but have a question which I couldn't find an answer for.

Is it possible to attached a pendrive device to the USB connector of the One x to download files, video etc. I know I can do it by connecting to my computer but I am looking for a more mobile smaller device like a memory stick to download to when I am not close to my computer.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Rudivn, welcome to AF!

As far as I'm aware, no, there isn't a way to do that unfortunately. I don't believe there are even any custom ROMs which offer that ability at the moment (although I could be wrong there).

El Presidente,

Thanks's for the reply, what I expected. A pity though, for me personally that would be a nice feature to have. Well, maybe someone will come along in due course and develop a new App providing that functionality.

Cheers,
Rudi

Overall I love the phone switching over from my iphone 4, but one thing that is dissappointing is the mail app, with my iphone pictures would display in emails I got from companies with their logo and all that stuff but here it doesn't...

Try K9 Mail, I find it much better than the stock mail app.

Another iPhone convert here. I had exclusively used iPhones for the last 4 years and I finally decided to switch to Android after becoming completely fed up with the staleness of iOS. I briefly used a GSM Galaxy Nexus and for the most part loved it, but found the hardware lacking, so I picked up a One X. So far I haven't had any problems and I'm enjoying this phone more than I ever enjoyed an iPhone.

I really want to install CleanROM 4.5 on my AT&T One X but I have zero experience with this. I've tried to read up on rooting but it's all just left me with a big headache. I also don't have a Windows machine, only OS X, and most things I read make it seem like Windows is required.

Can anyone help me with the best place to start for installing custom ROMs using OS X? Thanks.

Just switched from the iPhone 3Gs which I had for 2 years, to the HTC One X, my first android, and so far I'm impressed. Going to the much larger phone is kind of hard on my hands (makes it almost impossible to type with one hand, which I was able to do easily on my iPhone) but having more room on the screen is nice. Although I've noticed that a lot of things, menus in particular, appear to be blown up more then necessary to fit the larger screen. I'm sure this is something I'll just have to get used to. The battery life is noticeably better than my 3Gs was, which is a definate plus. Towards the end there I was having to charge my iPhone 2 or 3 times a day! The HOX easily lasts all day, even with heavy texting and app use.

I just downloaded the ICS keyboard and so far it seems much better than the stock one. I downloaded the GO Keyboard app also, but was having a hard time finding a theme that I liked. I think someone mentioned an iPhone theme at one time, but I couldnt find that at all! Plus it feels silly to switch to Droid and then just make my phone exactly like the iPhone was to begin with.. If anyone knows of a good keyboard app, especially if it has emojis, please help me out!

I'm still in the process of finding a good SMS, and e-mail alternative. One of the things I love about Android is the customizability, which is one of the main reasons I switched in the first place.. but now that I've got it, I'm actually feeling a bit overwhelmed by the options! I just want a decent e-mail app, preferably a widget actually (I am in LOVE with widgets) that I can refresh from the screen (the Mail widget that came on the phone doesnt have a refresh option, I have to actually go to the program to make it refresh, which kind of makes having a widget on my screen pointless..) I have a Yahoo! e-mail account, and my school e-mail which is through windows live outlook, so I need something that will work with those and have them in the same place. (Like the iPhone e-mail app...)

Also a text / SMS app that isnt too confusing. I really dont like the stock one. And I hate that Android doesnt do group-messaging like the iPhone. I have the GroupMe app, because I had a few group messages with people who didnt have smart phones, which I understand. But I see no reason this phone, which IS a smartphone, shouldnt be able to do group-messages like the iPhone. Does anyone know of an app or something that can do this? I dont like that you cant do pictures through GroupMe (not in SMS style anyway).

Plus I've been having the problem of not recieving messages from people. People with iPhones, I suppose. I told them to delete the threads they had with me (where it was sending iMessages) and that seems to have worked for the most part.

I havent even started to attempt to transfer my music to my phone, the whole process just seems mind-boggling. If someone could walk me through the steps I would need to take, I'd really appreciate it. :/ I need some serious hand-holding through this process..

OH! And another thing. I dont even know how to begin going about uploading ringtones and texttones to this device. On my iPhone I had an app that could copy bits of songs and turn them into ringtone files, which are now on my iTunes. Is there a way to sync those over to my Android so I can use them?

AAANNDDD.. I havent been able to figure out how to get to my voicemail.. I'm probably just dumb but.. this is a problem obviously lol. I received one and was able to access it through the notification, but still. I'm supposed to have visual voicemail, but I have no idea where that is. Even when I used the notification to listen to the one I got, it did the regular voicemail "press bla button to listen, press bla button to delete, ect. Where can I find my visual voicemail, and activate it if its not? The visual voicemail was one feature of the iPhone that I really loved when it got updated to that.

Try Swype, it's different and can take a while to get used to, but it makes one handed typing mega easy. Alternatively, SwiftKey X is also very good.

For SMS, it's not very widely known, but take a look at Pansi. It's customisable, lightweight and looks nicer than the stock app.

For Email, I'd go with K9-Mail

Not sure about Group SMS, sorry. It's not something I'd use to any great extent.

Create a folder on your SD Card called Music, connect your phone to your PC as a disk drive, copy your MP3's to the music folder, disconnect the phone from the PC. Open the music app, et volia! If you want to import your iTunes library, look at Doubletwist or iSyncr.

For ringtones, create a folder on your SD Card called "Ringtones" (minus the quotes) and put the tunes you want to use in there. If they're in that folder, they'll appear in the list of available ring tones. For SMS Alerts, do the same, but crfeate a folder called "Notifications". Alternatively, let Ringdroid do it all for you.

Visual Voicemal? Not sure about that. If I want to access voicemail, I open the dialer and hold the 1 button. Does that work for you? If no, hopefully someone else will chime in.

Hope all that helps, don't hesitate to ask if you need anything clarified.

I'm with Optus in Australia and to get to my voicemail, I just have to dial 321. You could try that and see if it works.

OK so I figured out the visual voicemail. You have to download the AT&T visual voicemail app, it doesn't come pre installed. The set up was ready though.

I downloaded k9 already, but does it have a widget? I can't find it if it does.

Thanks for the help though guys ill check out pans I and swype

There is a widget, but it's 3rd Party and needs to be downloaded separately I think.

Google voice is pretty awesome, but AT&T tries to block it by not allowing the app to change the phone settings as part of its setup. You have to enter your Google Voice number as the the forwarding number in settings manually.

Main advantages to Google Voice are:

Transcripts (these are usually laughable but do improve over time )
Separate online access via a web browser
And you can customize your voicemail salutation for specific numbers

Do you know what it's called? Or can you give a link or something? I've been looking but nothing I've found seems worthwhile.

MailListWidget.

Although I don't think that's the one I was referring too. There was definitely one which had a similar logo to the actual k9 app.

Main advantages to Google Voice are:

Transcripts (these are usually laughable but do improve over time )
Separate online access via a web browser
And you can customize your voicemail salutation for specific numbers
You can actually set up GV through the website and bypass the crappy app set up on your ATT OneX. Just use the forwarding set up online and download the app. Voila!

Hi everyone,

It's my first day with my One X. I've been looking forward to my upgrade for a while now. I'm coming from an iPhone 4. Quick question about bluetooth...

I have a 2013 Subaru with a very nice bluetooth stereo setup that worked wonderfully with my iPhone. It would automatically pair whenever I got in and started the car, and even started playing whatever I was playing last, be it Pandora or iPod music. Now with the One X I seem to have to pair it every time I get back in the car. It makes listening to music while out running errands (getting in and out of the car a lot) quite annoying. Has anyone experienced this? Do I just have to get over the fact that it won't auto-pair? I've read in a few other places that bluetooth with ICS isn't the greatest right now and very buggy. Something about it being hardware capable, but not software capable. If I'm out of luck for the moment I hope jellybean will address this issue.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Wanted to comment to keep this post alive.

Converted to S3 from iPhone 3gs. I like it simply because the screen is huge.

Would love to be able to convert my iPhone Apps so I don't have to replace them. The last issue I had was calls dropping. I followed the steps of removing the, Powering down, remove the Battery & Sim card. Replace the Sim Card, then the battery. Re-assembling the case, and powering back on.

I've only had 2 phones calls since. I'll call my parents late tonight or early morning and see if I drop their call.

If I can make a few calls tonight and tomorrow without dropping I'll keep the phone. Otherwise I'm returning it for an iPhone 5.

I don't like having to look up every single issue to keep my phone working. Would prefer everything worked.

I also keep getting text messages that someone wants to chat with me. Don't know if this is spam, coming from Facebook or since android is an open system everyone can spam you.
