    i did notice and check out the assistive light widget. it does the same thing but it is big, non-resizeable and ugly. lol. i was wandering more so about all apps with widgets in general. are some widgets not available on the S3 that are available on other phones?

    On my old phone you could long press on an image in the web browser and select share to copy the image into an MMS for example. On this you can only share the URL or save the image to share. How Can i get this feature back?

    The deal breaker for the stock flashlight was that it is a single button press light. What I mean by that is that you only have to press the widget once and the LED is on. This means it's too easy to accidentally light it up which can be inconvenient at times. Also, if you accidentally light it up under certain circumstances it could stay on and drain your battery. I don't know if there is some sort of safeguard for this but I don't want to find out.

    I use one of the many apps available on the Play store and you open the app with a tap and then you have to tap the button in the center of the screen to activate the LED. It also has choices for other effects such as a variable strobe light and whatever. But I just wanted the flashlight part.

    Sorry, I don't have an answer for you. This isn't a very busy thread so maybe starting your own or finding another existing thread will give you an answer a little quicker. Or, maybe it's just that nobody knows the answer.

    I think this is the same issue I had on my old phone, it wouldn't let me log in and said that same message with the hotmail app, i uninstalled it and reinstalled it and it still wouldn't work, but then I tried downloading it from searching it online and getting it from the browser play store - eventually it just started working again, hope you get it!

    OK - you got it - now - I can't find it. Can you help? My other issue is I'm not seeing an address bar. .

    I'm sure that they are both DOH's. LOL

    Hey guys. I am trying to make an outgoing call and I get a "Not allowed by SIM" error. I rebooted the phone and I'm not getting this anymore but anyone seen/heard of this before? I'm on the Rogers network if that makes a difference.

    ADW launcher is excellent and lets you do this. There's a lot of trial and error needed though to get the most out of it.

    I looked at this setting and it was off already, and yeah the noise went away without me doing anything, strange right? lol.

    Try the above: Settings>> accessibility >> talk back.....off

    Since no one answered my question, I will myself since I have my SIII now. YES, the SIII records movies with stereo sound. When held landscape the top mic (normally sound canceling mic) will record sound from stage left. The bottom mic (phone mic) will record sound from stage right. So there is no sound cancellation while recording a movie.


    New question, and this is bugging me!

    How do you turn off the LED notification for GMail?

    No LED setting in GMail and I even unchecked all three settings in Settings/LED Indicator but the LED still flashes blue when I have an unread GMail. Help!

    If you want to switch out of the mobile view you have to click the settings button (whatever the bottom left one is called) and then check the "request desktop site'' box. I'm not sure why you can't see the address bar.

    Mine was already off but the message is still there. I created a folder on one of my home screens and every time I open it I get "the folder is open" and when I close it "the folder is closed" or when I open the edit screen I get "home screen edit page open" then work space 5 of 7 (or whichever page I'm on) Any other ideas where this setting is?

    I was playing around with dropbox and i foolishly pushed unlink account and now i cant get back on it.

    Im not sure which email i used, i tried everyone that is linked to my S3 and they are all unrecongised.

    Will it be my samsung accounts email i used st the start during the initial setup of the phone? I sent an email to dropbox but no reply yet...

    Thanks.

    My battery lasts 16 hours give or take. I am usually browsing Facebook and/or texting at work.

    My question is how can I NOT have to crop a photo when setting a wallpaper on the home or lock screen?

    On the subject of when to charge the battery, I use a simple solution. I plug it in every night. I've been doing this for about 15 years with various PDAs and phones and never had any problems with batteries. In addition, if it gets down around 50% during the day I will charge it some if I am able.

    With the combination of smart chargers being used now and the Li-Ion batteries, you can charge them whenever, and leave them plugged in as long as you like.

    what i do is bring up the picture in your gallery. get it to the size and look you want. make sure there is nothing else on the screen but that picture and then juust take a screen shot... you will not have to crop it after that. just set as your wallpapper
