    The Wallpaper Wizardrii app does a pretty good job of easily formatting a picture for wallpaper on your home screen.

    OK I went into Accessibility and unchecked accessibility shortcut and also turned on talkback then turned it off then turned off Addons Detector and now the voice is gone. I wasn't sure which one it was so I turned on Addons Detector and the voice was back so apparently that was it. Thanks for all the help. It helped me get it figured out.
    I didn't have Light Flow installed but since they said it was an accessibility issue that's were I looked.

    Yes, I'm using MotoTorch. Has the three options others have (steady, strobe, Morse code). Used it on my Droid X for two years. I can't believe the single LED is brighter than the dual LED on the DX!

    Guys

    If you like to have that your s3 lasts longer in battery performance...make sure to turn off the data usage when not in use and try to install the applications on the Memory card as it saves precious battery and can help you in performance.

    ----It will maximize RAM performance

    ----Lower battery consumption

    ----Apply normal display brightness

    Try to log into dropbox from a PC. try every email address you may have used to register with dropbox the first time
    It's all about the screen resolution, while I love the reply you got about using the screenshot ability to do this(that was a great tip), knowing the exact resolutions for landscape and portrait will help you to find wallpapers that 'just fit'

    Clear app cache and data from googe frameworks & play store maybe? If that doesn't work then I'm afraid a factory reset is probably in order

    Why would having apps on memory card affect anything?





    Ok, I have a question. Best way to disable 4g? Is there a setting I'm missing or will I need a app to do it? DOes the *#43xxx#* work? (i can never remember the numbers)

    edit: imagine that, the answer was in a sticky :eek: here: http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-s3/582411-all-lte-models-toggle-4g-3g.html

    Hey peeps. So I have a whole bunch of music on my S3. Is there an app I can download that will stream my music from my phone to an FM radio preset in my car wirelessly? I don't have bluetooth in my car (2000 Acura EL). So, is this possible? I know I can probably get an FM transmitter and dock my phone on there but I'm looking for a wireless way to do this :p

    Where is the voice input button on the keyboard? I would like to use voice input for texting. The "voice input" option is checked in the Samsung keyboard setting, but the button never shows up on the keyboard. Where is it?

    The option I have checked is "Voice input, Show voice entry button on keyboard"

    The button to the left of the space bar, press and hold to activate it.

    Im using swiftkey so it may be different.

    I got the international version of the S3.

    a couple of issues I'm having (not huge but bugs me a bit)

    1. which stock applications can I turn disable or stop running?

    2. My wallpaper images seems to be either too stretched out or too wide. what is the resolution that fits perfectly for wallpaper?

    NEW QUESTION

    Ok when you pull the notification bar down the SIII has the quick on and off bar at the top of the screen. Has anyone figured out how to edit that bar so you can add stuff like screen brightness, hotspot? Some of those options i'll never use.

    Does anyone know how to make the phone part of this phone more user friendly? It takes way to many clicks to make a call! Not safe while driving.
