    Good call, Funky. I just bumped up the Incoming Call and Notification levels, so will see if that helps. I'm used to the prior phones where it was all or nothing for vibration, and didn't know adjusting intensity was an option. Shows you how little I mess around with these particular settings. Great that the option is there, though.
    Did you know you can create your own vibration pattern too lol? Mine is like a mouse having a fit in my pocket... impossible to miss

    There's nothing that i dislike about my SGSIII. However, there is one thing that i'm curious about. With the phone off, when i get an email, the screen stays dark and the LED flashes. When i get a text msg, the lock screen comes on, and no LED flashes, unless i just close the phone. Is this a feature "built-in" to the phone, or maybe just ICS?

    You can maybe change that option in your sms app. I have Go Sms set for the screen to stay off when i get a txt

    Yeah, I think I completely agree with you. And oh, btw, I don't really know diddly about what I'm trying to say or talk about. lol
    But I do think it's definitely an S3 problem, too, since the aux cable is oakey-dokey. ;-(

    At Settings > scroll down until you see 'Accessory' (just below 'Back up and reset' >> and just above << 'Date and time' & ' Accessibility'), on my ICS 4.0.4 [w/ base & build ~LH9].
    Think I understand now. My S3 version does not have a Settings\Accessory option, but does have a System\Dock. What's one thing you dislike about your Galaxy S3?-screenshot_2012-11-17-17-55-53.png and then within Dock there's an option for Audio Output Mode. What's one thing you dislike about your Galaxy S3?-screenshot_2012-11-17-18-02-40.pngMy build is IMM76D.I535VRALHE, so could be some differences between the two and how the Settings are named and laid out.

    Ok after 2 months, I finally found something that annoys the hell out of me. Maybe there's a fix that I don't know about, but when I want to check my Phone Call Logs, all my SMS's are littered throughout.

    Ok fixed....while typing I decided to check the settings menu on a whim, problem solved. So back to the OP question.....haven't found anything yet.

    The thing with the headphone socket is it isnt at "line" output level (industry standard) so have to experiment... a volt meter would be handy
    Oh really, funky? How handy? And where should I stick it? . . . .wait, better not answer that.

    Roger that, Dog5000. ;-) Been doing chores & watchin' college football so haven't messed with it today, but I'll report back in another day or two if I get it to work. Thanks for your input.

    I also wish I could turn off auto screen rotate, BUT when I watch YouTube videos or movies etc. it would automatically rotate.

    Curious, is that asking for too much?

    Found out on XDA, that it's a feature built into TouchWiz. Screen pops on for a few seconds, then shuts off, and the LED starts flashing. I can live with that.

    They are a couple of things actually
    1-The bezel is too small,I keep accidently touching the screen with the bottom of my thumb.Hopefully this will change when i get a case.
    2-Pentile display,small text isn't very sharp but well its still 100% readable and thats what matters even if it doesn't look sharp enough.
    3-Widget drawer lag in TW launcher.
    Other than that it's the best all round phone for me.

    I don't like the single physical home button, a little too iphoney, but I've gotten more than used to it.

    I don't like that if I select a wallpaper from the gallery it has to be cropped to single home screen size. Since I use a launcher with scrollable wallpaper it creates black bars on each side when swiping to different home screens.

    I don't like that verizon put the wifi as an ongoing notification instead of a toggle to remind us they don't want us to use the data we pay for.

    I don't like that a lot of the cool features aren't convenient to use and are buried deep in settings menus. Such as the photo sharing things and s beam. S beam/ nfc should have a toggle!

    More than one I know. But regardless, I still love this phone!


    Oh one more, I don't like S(iri) voice. Bring on Google Now!

    There's an app called image 2 wallpaper that lets you crop for launchers with scrollable home screens. That's what I've been using.

    Really weird. I'm not aware of an unmount command (not rooted, so not sure I could pull that off via a terminal session). To get weirder, I don't see an Accessory section in my Settings. I was going to walk through your steps but can't find Audio Output Mode. I am looking in the wrong places? I have a stock Verizon 4.0.4 ICS image. I don't have anything set at all to account for an Aux connection, so perhaps there is a bug (as you alluded to with the disappearing check box) in the Audio Output Mode feature? I have a limited understanding about Aux electronically, but don't think that the S3 can understand the difference between a supported 3.5mm jack from an Aux cable vs. that of a headset or headphones. So with known good Aux cables, to me that points to a flaky software feature. Going out on a limb here, though.
    So after updating to the Verizon Jelly Bean update today, I tried USB connectivity again. After connecting my S3 to the stereo's USB jack a popup message appeared telling me that my computer did not support the USB modes and to use Kies Air, etc. to manage the phone. Since the USB mode in Jelly Bean 4.1.1 appears to be set to "Connected as an installer" by default, I set it to MTP mode. A few seconds later the stereo displayed "USB Read" on the LCD console, and then about 15-30 seconds later music began playing. I can skip around using the stereo controls with behavior acting much like that when browsing CD content on a CD changer. That may be due to how my particular stereo behaves, though. I can play the songs in my playlist via the default Music Player independently of what the stereo is playing. This is probably not intended by design, but is easy enough to work around by not invoking the Music Player. I recall trying the same thing with the USB modes when the S3 had ICS, and didn't have success. I'll experiment around further, but so far looks promising and has appeared to solve one of the features I lacked prior.

    Who is your carrier? Verizon told me there's no toggle because they're doing away with CDMA and will be a full LTE provider. Antony else heard this?

    I handles switching from one app thread to the other poorly. too much dependency on the home button resulting a poor productivity experience.

    Thanks for that interesting update, Dog5000.
    Wish ours would work with our vehicles stereo/steering wheel controls, like yours does now. Perhaps I should re-think my 'Viva La ICS !' intransigence. lol

    Sorry for no update on my part, as I think I got tired of messing around with it, and also forgot about this thread.

    Also an option to set for smart alerts if you miss a call or text and the screen is black, it will vibrate when you pick it up.

    It's kind of like they want to show us every time there are a ton of toggle buttons now. Would be nice if it had a "do not show again" option to click. I wouldn't have realized all were there if it didn't scroll that first time, but now I get it..tons more toggle buttons lol
