    Hello everyone, :) I am Tiffany, I am new to the Samsung Galaxy S III so can you all give me some pointers? I came to android from the iPhone 4S/5 and went to the LG Optimus G (there is no cute cases for this phone so I returned it) Any tips or advice is appreciated :D

    Welcome to the forums, Tiffany! :hello:
    That's quite a broad question you have there. Is there anything in particular you're looking for?

    Did you have an android phone before the s3?
    EDIT sorry just read your post again. Youre contacts are probably saved in google. When you turned the phone on, did u put the same gmail address and password in as you had on the LG?

    When you login into Google, your contacts are automatically synced with Google, unless you disabled the sync features. On any Android phone you migrate to, the contacts are always restored as soon as you log into your Google account.

    the LG was an adroid, it was ice cream sandwhich, i never save any contacts to my gmail, even though it synced. I always had them save to AT&T it popped up when i first started the phone but i missed it. my other question is how do you make it not announce you have an email when recieved when the phone is locked? i was sleeping and it woke me up

    also how do i make it so i can save battery life ive only been up for an hour n its already down to 90%

    where did you buy the phone from?

    when i got my first android phone from best buy, they transferred my contacts using their special "black box" for free.

    so if you still have your iPhone up and running, just without service, see if where you got your S3 to do that.

    as for battery life, usually it takes about 3-4 full charge/discharge cycles to bring it to its fullest.

    if you are not lasting say 24 hours you have a run away process running and eating up all the juice.

    for me, it was an app called MEDIA SERVER that kept the phone awake. unfortunately, for me, a complete reboot from factory defaults was the only way to kill this...

    While on the LG if you get your contacts into G-Mail, you can go back to the S3 and it will sync.
