    I was also wondering about this.

    I guess others are also experiencing this then. If there is no solution then this is definitely a weakness compared to some other older Android devices.

    Other deficiencies I see:

    Mobile web pages do not autoadjust for the width of the screen, I have to pan around them. This is a real inconvenience. My old T-bolt did this flawlessly.

    Extra clicks needed to do simple tasks. E.g. With my T-bolt, I could hit the phone icon, see recently called #'s, click on one and it would call. Now on the GS3 I have to hit phone icon>recent button>click on a recent call>then click on the phone icon when that contact opens up. That is 2 extra clicks for a simple and common task.

    WiFi -- why am I seeing a Wifi notice? Surely there's gotta be a way to turn this off, keep it off, and not have to see it "Wi-Fi Off, Tap to turn Wi-Fi on" every time I pull down the task bar - ???

    Power on bottom. Cannot stand device up while charging.

    Taskbar - it does not show all my running programs or recent program. E.g. if I'm reading a kindle book and get a text message, I pull down the taskbar and click on it and check it, then I pull down taskbar again and Kindle is not showing there. So I have to go back Home and open up the Kindle app again.

    I cede that there is a possibility that some of my settings are off, I certainly hope so.

    Any assistance? I think I have some additional grievances that I'll add as they come to me. I'm not sure why such a new and supposedly cutting-edge device seems to have glaring deficiencies.
