    All right folks, some of us Verizon customers have had a week ( not Rushmore :secruity:) now to spend w/ our beloved S3's that we so patiently waited for :rolleyes: and for the most part are pretty happy w/ them. O.k. , not everybody I'm sure, but you have to admit there have been no major issues ( i.e. Galaxy Nexus signal extravaganza ). I figured this would be a great place to mention those things / bugs that you have noticed that Big Red could fix w/ an OTA update. Think of it as a Christmas list we are giving to Verizon to make our S3 experience just a little bit better or in some cases a lot better.

    Pure Jelly Bean, no Touchwiz and/or an unlocked/unlockable bootloader! :)

    LED Indicator is confused. I have the box unchecked to not light up when charging & still lights up anyway.

    1. Unlocked bootloader
    2. Wifi nag line removed from notifications bar
    3. Wifi toggle in with the rest of the toggles; WHERE IT BELONGS!
    4. Ability to create shortcuts on the home screen like I used to with my Droid Incredible. I want to make shortcuts to files and folders on my SD card without 3rd party software. I would also like to make shortcuts to settings like the ones I list in #6. (Using Linda manager for now)
    5. Capacitive home button. (Well, since we're all dreaming anyway)
    6. Ability to customize the notification toggles to add and remove stuff. I don't need Screen Rotation, Power Saving, Airplane mode, Driving Mode up there. But I might like to have toggles for NFC, S Beam, Wi-fi Direct, File Sharing up there. Can I get an Amen to that one?

    I think the only "wishlist" we should have on our phone is that Samsung and Verizon can push out Jelly Bean to the Galaxy S3 before the year ends. To have Jelly Bean on our phones in 3-4 months would be a very welcomed addition. It would be a step forward in Android fragmentation. I would easily give my phone back for a month or so if they would have launched with Jelly Bean.

    Put a Wifi toggle on the notification bar, or at least provide a toggle widget that works. Stop the phone from lighting up when a text message comes in.

    Fix the lag after pressing the home button. Mine is a little slow. Unlock FM radio if there is one.

    There have been reports of turning off S-Voice to improve home button.

    You can disable S-voice from home button which will make home button faster.

    I hope update brings back WiFi toggle switch and also forced 3G/CDMA mode.

    1. Fix the keyboard screen flicker
    2. Fix the notification so when you have headphones in it only plyays through the headphones, not the phone speaker.
    3. Remove the keyboard customize option from the notification bar every time you are typing.
    4. Wifi toggle widget in place of the notification.

    Those are all realistic. We al know vzw isn't going to unlock the bootloade.

    S Voice > Settings > Launch S Voice

    Untick!

    Just to note this does resolve the lag.

    They need to fix the Headset/Bluetooth issue. If the 3.5mm is populated then call audio will NOT be sent to Bluetooth. You have to have a dock like the Infuse 4G dock that uses the line out function on the USB to get AUX and Bluetooth to play nice together.

    -Remove annoying WiFi message.
    -WiFi toggle in notification bar.
    -Notification sounds through headphones/earbuds and not through phone's speakers.
    -Ability to turn 3G/4G on/off.
    -Fix wallpaper so when you choose a gallery pic it crops correctly isn't cut off when you scroll through pages.

    I tried it. It didn't work for me, that's why I said "that works." I'll give it another go.

    Edit: Thanks! It worked. I guess it got confused last time. This time I turned off WiFi before setting the widget. The only problem I have with the widget is that it hasn't been updated for ICS and is misaligned with everything else.

    Since there is 0% chance we get an unlocked bootloader, AOSP ICS or AOSP JB or even TouchWiz JB i will not even bother with those...

    1. Remove the WiFi ongoing notification
    2. Add Wifi Toggle to the rest of the toggles in notification bar
    3. Remove "Location Services" Icon from notification bar
    4. tweak the auto-brightness so that it works better
    5. Add option so that incoming SMS/MMS does not turn on screen
    6. fix predictive text (somehow)
    7. Add wallpaper scrolling
    8. Allow for more cropping options when setting wallpaper

    probably some others im missing


    the phone is waiting to see if you press the key again to launch S-Voice...disable S-Voice double click and it will become instant with no lag
