    Yep, I've had ICS since November, so I'll help on that end or anywhere else I can.

    2 things to start....

    I can't move my apps to the sd card ? It says there is no external storage, however, all my pics etc are visible ??? huh???

    Also, all my fb pics that link to my contacts are blurry. I paid and downloaded haxsync and it still doesn't help...

    What the heck is Kies ? and do I need it?/ where do I find it?

    Oh, 1 last thing... (lol) Where is google wallet? I can't find it either???

    That should start me out (and Cranberry and vodka on me if you can help :))

    I believe the S3 is like my GNex where the SD card is virtual so I don't think you gain anything. I have over 125 apps installed (many are large games) and have no issues with storage. I started with an OG Droid so I know what you are thinking, but I don't think it is a major issue anymore.

    Facebook pics linked to contacts being blurry is an issue I have as well. There are workarounds, I'll check the GNex forums and see if I can link you to a solution. It just wasn't a big deal for me.

    Kies is some sort of Samsung device maintenance thing and from my understanding is more trouble than its worth. I have not needed it yet. Hopefully someone with a better understanding of it will chime in.

    No wallet yet on the VZW GS3... Only the officially supported sprint version has it... Give it some time, and I am sure someone will get it on the VZW version.

    Still lovin my S3 - sober now :( :p

    But why does it take a sec for my clock to pop up every time I go back to home screen? (Using beautiful widgets clock)

    some apps don't seem to be handling the s3 so awesome :/ BofA, FB, Starbucks

    my text message counter is stuck @1

    Also I would love GWallet to come to s3!

    For the clock, try going to settings > Dev options > "window animation scale & Transition scale" turning them off.

    For messge counters being stuck, delete the message icon and replace it, or do a phone reset/firmware update ;)

    Btw still half cut :D

    I'm sure if that was the case, they wouldn't have bothered with the 16gb version, after all, this isn't apple we are talking about

    1. Sell the Wildfire S

    2. Count my pennies while watching the price on eBay, Amazon & Newegg. Looks like I can get a great deal on a brand new GT-I9300 here! :D And I've sold a laptop beside the WFS. Half the cost is covered!

    3. Visit the friendly phone shop in Phnom Penh Monday.

    Yeah, in Cambodia if your order coffee to go it comes in a bag like in my avatar. It's just a cool thing. I'll be back in the US for three months starting Wednesday this week. It's going to be weird getting Starbucks in a plastic cup and paying $4 for it. I quite like ultra-strong, slightly sweet Vietnamese ice coffee in a bag off the side of the road for $.50 :D

    Don't bother with that Starbucks crap. Where are you headed? We'll find you a better place.
