    Default New S5 owner, come from iPhone

    Hello everyone, ive had all iPhones-3GS/4/5. Wanted something different, so got the Galaxy S5, and so far really like it, found an app to transfer all my itunes libary to my new phone!!, Downloaded a iPhone ringtone ap, so a ringtone and message tone i like now. Ordered a 32gb Kingston MicroSD card off Best Buys site, said was reg $64.99, on sale for $15.99, so got that on the way, the night i got it, i got an Otterbox Defender case, that's what i had on all my iPhones, and I really like them alot. Really enjoying the phone so far, getting used to all the new stuff.

    Here's the best part....

    Went into Best Buy for some reason to get the phone where its $199, and to trade in my iPhone 5, so they take the case off, and tell me its in "Poor" condition, and the screen is all scratched up, from dust getting into the case..and say they'll give me $90. I say i think not, and leave, go across the street to Target, where they do the same, and say its in perfect shape, and give me $200+ plus the phone there is $149.99, so i end up with $37.xx left to spend. And the phone didn't cost me anything, haha!!

    So was the phone really scratched or was the guy at Best Buy crazy?

    I dont think it was, he was just trying to rip me off. In the past i've always since ive had iphones, i've took them to Target and they've always been more than fair on a trade in price. Just figured i'd give Best Buy a try, Im sticking with Target!!

    That's great! I didn't know Target did trade-ins. Is it a carrier thing? (T-mobile?)

    Just remembered not sure if it's only our local Target but they said that they only carried prepaid tmobile. Heard them tell somebody that on the phone.

    Welcome to Android. Glad you're liking your GS5. If you haven't already, download Zedge from Google Play. That's my go-to app for Ringtones & Wallpapers.

    I recommend Textra for a texting app. It is an amazing app. Super smooth, and has a great design. Here is the link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...?id=com.textra

    I usually stick with stock but this is amazing, I love the simplicity of it.

    I highly recommend using Dolphin Browser. It supports Flash:

    I also recommend HiFont. You can change your system fonts:

    Congrats on the new phone and welcome to the android community! It is a pleasant place and an enjoyable OS. Well, I'm not a fan of Samsung, but that's my opinion and I'm not going to down it here. You say you're loving it, so that's awesome!

    Yeah, Best Buy really tries to screw you over with that buy back thing. I had the same exact problem. They wanted to give me 90 bucks because it was in "poor" condition (it had a little tiny chip at the lower corner that you could barely see) and I said absolutely not. The sprint store said they'd even give me like 150 for it, and at that time I was wanting to get my current moto x. But good thing that you didn't just up and fall for Best Buys tricky ways. I'm sure a lot of people with not as much phone sense or even common sense fall to that.

    Anyway, good luck with your new S5! 😊

    Which app did you use to transfer your itunes library? I too recently made the switch from iphone to S5. Guy who sold me the phone was all about google play music, but I am having some trouble getting it to work properly. Any and all help much appreciated.
