Hampton, VA, Dread.

I just got back from my final scan of the Phnom Penh market. The unit would be made in Vietnam and I can get it NIB with 1yr. warranty and screen protector for $640. That's a great price but I'm hesitant about the "made in Vietnam" part. I might wait until I get home.

Edit: It looks like they opened the plant in late 2009 and it does only high end phones--S2, Note, S3.

Edit: Phone in hand Upload pics later!! Going to meet the buyer of the Wildfire S now

Feel the same way . My Samsung DROID Charge ( 1st smartphone ) auction ended on ebay this afternoon & boxing it up as we speak. I know this phone wasn't " all that" , but being my first ( ) , I'll never forget it.

Cousin Eddie is here and jumping on the diving board and about to belly flop in the watering hole.

So far, my only complaint is I had to get the white one, but BB at least kept my bluple 32gb preorder open. Still no sign of them, but I probably will start all over again, since the white is now bugging me. I do not like white cars either and dumped my white 3DS Lite as soon as the black one was released. If it were gray it would be okay. Not a case of being vain, but more it just seems gaudy to me. JMO.

Added:

I am now using the Nova launcher. Better options, landscape mode, drag and drop folders, mass app folder drops, more icons and most importantly, you can back up the launcher settings, so no starting from scratch when the pluble 32gb gets in at BB. I now show 253 apps installed and set all my stuff up. Too tedious to go through again, if can be avoided

I chose Nova over Apex due to the mass app drag and drop is in the free version of Nova. Will pay for the app if stick with it.

Glad you headed over from that train wreck we call the S3 threads. That place is like a horrible nightmare come true. Hard to give good advice when you think your talking to someone w/ the same phone as you, but they have a different version, on another carrier, etc. Guides if your out there we need some order over there ASAP.

Staff is aware of the issue treb. This happens with major device releases. It will happen again when JB starts rolling out. If you see anything that needs our attention, just hit the report button.

I think part of the issue is that the same questions are being asked time and again because some people are too lazy to search, and possibly the under use of the tags system.

That & the phone is on all 4 major carriers in the United States w/ more to follow. Then we have the UK folks as well. So you may be trying to tell someone how to access something or perform a certain task & their phone "layout" is different b/c your on Verizon & they are AT&T or whatever. So you have alot of new folks that are already confused & this only adds to the confusion.

Update : I went over to the Android Central forums for the S3 & I think it would be of great benefit for everyone to have separate threads depending on what carrier you have. It's way more organized & less craziness. I'm only saying this b/c I love our beloved site here & want to make it better for all members. Guides click on the link & see for yourselves. I know this topic was brought up before, but I think it should be revisited. Again, I only say this b/c I care , so don't let this rub you the wrong way.

Ah, yeah, I tend to be a no beer while working. The bosses seem to frown upon that.

Good luck at the wedding.

having a drink or 2 should be required before having to start a shift in retail.. its so hard dealing with complete morons (aka customers) sober!

Today for example:

Customer: "Is this the new S3?" (pointing at the Note)
Me: "No thats the galaxy Note"
C: "Oh so this is the note 3?"
Me: "No, this is the note 1, that is the S3" (points at S3)
C: "oh, where are the iphones?"

LOL...I was in Best Buy yesterday for them to replace my InvisibleShield HD (another story...) and a girl came in with the GSIII she had JUST bought the day before to return it. I asked her why and as soon as she said "Well, I had an iPhone before..." I knew there was no need for her to elaborate.

I did. My daughter has my GNex, and I have reserved the right to take it back if necessary. So far, other than the locked bootloader, I like it. Not fond of TouchWiz, but Apex Launcher came to the rescue. Battery life is great - yesterday I went 17+ hours and still had 27% battery left, and that was on 4g most of the day since I don't have wifi at work. Granted, that's not with heavy use, but my GNex would be at 40% or by the time I left work and MAY make it til bedtime without needing a charge.

Oh speaking of returning a samsung for an iphone (bleh)

I had a customer come in one morning a few weeks back to exchange her galaxy note for an iphone - she hated the amazing android OS and the HUGE screen and apparently wanted to go back to the tiny slow iphone 4... wtf??

later that day a lady came in wanting to exchange her new iphone for a galaxy note!

was pretty funny, glad one of them had sense though!

Folks, the water hole stuff almost seems like we are tucked away to the side to avoid much interaction with fellow VZW GS3 users. I have read enough posts in the main forum to see the decision to keep the GS3 all together is one good intentioned mess. This appears to be getting worse.

Too many differences. Even if all versions had the same chipset, I would consider it, but still not buy it. This on the other hand is a comic farce.

BTW, my sons Droid 3 (was mine until last November) has MUCH better 3G signal and throughput. I felt like I had a Gnex.

You think the S3 threads are a mess now just wait until everybody starts getting Jelly Bean at different times. Thank the lord some smart person invented this thread so we have a place to get away from that train wreck.

Treb, you are the leader of the VZW GS3 club. Based on its forum location, population is about 9.

I went to get it yesterday, but forgot the GS3 box was in my car, rather than my wife's that we actually went in. Duh.

Will go tomorrow, but thing is I have everything already set up...... Apathy is hovering.

You are a bigger man or would it be lady in this case. There is no way I could do a white phone, to iPhoney & more for the ladies. Put your big girl panties on & get to BB ASAP !!

Oh my wife was wondering if you could return her finger nail polish, that is if your done w/ it.
