    Hi all

    Received new S3 yesterday but cant find certain features please help:

    1) Where has Swype gone
    2) How do you make the phone turn on by saying "Hi Galaxy"
    3) What is the best size for Contact pictures, previous ones used on S2 look grainy.
    4) How do you remove / change widget / app on lock screen (i have four on the bottom of screen)
    be patient, im really getting on in years, or so my kids say!

    1) go to settings -> Language and input -> hit the gear next to Samsung keyboard and check Keyboard swipe.
    2)I'm assuming your asking how to unlock or wake up the phone rather than get it to turn on from "off".
    Settings -> Security -> lock screen options -> Set wake-up command

    3) this one I don't know.

    4) Settings -> Security -> lock screen options -> shortcuts

    To get to settings, hit the menu button (left of home button) when your looking at any of your home screens.

    Just a little more...

    If you follow GoldenDiamond's advice below and don't see it, go here:

    This is a function of S Voice. Press the home button twice to activate it for the first time, then you can set it up.
