    Nope - just go into contacts and scroll down to the very end. you should be able to see Set Custom Vibration pattern or something like that

    When browsing an internet web page tap the screen and hold your finger down for a few seconds. It opens a tiny magnifying glass so you can zoom on small areas of the page.

    tap on a contact, and scroll to the bottom. the last two sections should be "Ringtone" and "Vibration pattern". when you tap on "Vibration pattern", the center button at the bottom should say "Create" :)

    You CAN use both swipe to unlock with the quick launch icons and set a pin /password. First set swipe to unlock to on. Then change to pin number to unlock. Then there should be a box to select use pin with swipe. Works great.

    I also didn't know you could remove quick launch apps. So from my lock screen I have the camera and a flashlight.

    You don't even need a flashlight shortcut if you use Tiny Flashlight + LED

    To turn on the flashlight all you need to do is shake the phone from the lock screen, and shake it to turn it off again, without the need to input your security lock pattern or pin :)

    I have to say...the Samsung stock video player is pretty awesome. I love the animated previews, and it can play ANYTHING I throw it at.

    An only on Android moment today - went to accompany a friend studying at a cafe, got bored of reading my book on the Kindle app, so I went to see how Android torrenting works. Installed a torrent downloader, went to a common site, to get a certain common video, and roughly 5 mins later was watching a very funny show...Got pretty good download speeds, though my area isn't the best, about 850k/s...

    Looks like I've missed this one.... Where exactly is the option to turn this feature on? Didn't see it under Motion.

    :D

    It is a cool app. You can type in some text and it will convert it into morse code and flash it out for you. I use this feature all the time. Saves on data charges. Blackberry Messenger... Pah!

    Thanks you! I knew it must have been something I was overlooking. I was diving into edit right from the contact screen. Never bothered to scroll down. Thanks again.

    I have seen a few ppl mention that Bluetooth is not compatible when the AUX cable is plugged in. This is not true for me... I have Bluetooth in my car and lisen to music on my phone via AUX cable ALL the time.
