    I got this Verizon 4G LTE 10.1 tablet and I thought I'd be great; but I'm having issues with it and I'm literally about to the sell the thing and keep my iPad.

    It's very frustrating! You will probably laugh at me;

    1. I'm annoyed that we don't have a Facebook Tablet app; I mean seriously?
    2. Why can't ICS be out for it? Jelly Bean is around the corner, this is depressing. I found a host of ICS ROM's but it doesn't allow 4G LTE to work.
    3. I don't understand why when I plug it in to charge (via wall outlet), the touch screen is disabled; as in I can't enter my pin to unlock or touch dock icons, etc.
    4. There is just very little in terms of launcher apps out there. ADW is a joke; it doesn't even show wallpapers right using Quick Pic, Wizard Wallpaperii etc.

    Overall, I'm just disappointed. I expected more from a Samsung Galaxy Tablet 10.1 4G LTE.

    I paid $350 bucks for this thing on fleabay and thought I scored compared to my $600 iPad.

    Blame Facebook for not making a tablet app for their social network.
    That one is up to Verizon. The LTE version requires customized firmware with drivers to work with the LTE chipset.
    ICS has been released for most versions now. LTE versions will take longer to release but should be available soon. ICS is a big improvement over HC and I'm happy with the change. I have JB on my Nexus S phone and the two are actually quite similar. I'd like to see JB on my Tab, but right now ICS is very good.
    Never heard that one before. Perhaps a factory reset is in order to start the tablet with a clean setup?
    Can't help there, I don't use another launcher, just the default TouchWiz.
    If you're not happy with it, sell it and be happy.

    I sure sound whiney huh?

    Gah; I'm such a Droid fan, through and through.

    I'm in love with my S3; in fact my girlfriend told me if I don't stop playing with it, she's leaving me.

    Actually, when it comes to launchers, there are quite a few.
    GO Launcher is very popular; lots of themes available for it.
    Nova and Apex are two more good ones; very similar.
    After trying a bunch of them, I went with Nova. After using the free version for a while, I liked it enough to buy the paid version. Smooth, fast and stable.

    AFAIK, you can't use Nova on Honeycomb.
    OP, that's very unfortunate. :(
    I only had mine (wifi only) for a couple months before my wife dropped it and shattered the screen. Unless I know there's lots of development for it, I run far away from TW'd Samsung phones as they just are pretty crummy with updates.

    Yep, you're right. Forgot about that.

    Let's add one more thing to the list.

    I was on the train watching Netflix with headphones and I got about 15 notifications so my awesome little Whistle tone was going off. The guy behind me tapped my shoulder and asked me to mute my volume. It seems that notifications are sent through the speaker and not my headset when it's plugged in. Really?

    Try a factory reset, again, and I swear if this doesn't stop I'm done.

    I tried Factory reset; again.

    Still does it. If I put a headset in, the notifications sound is played through the external speaker. I've turned off the sound for now, so as not to piss off other people.
