    What he meant was not "Download" from the internet but transfer from the pc to the S3, at least that is my problem. I guess it has something to do with the windows drivers that are messed up since the last KIES update.

    Hi there

    I have just got my Sammy GS3. It's the nuts. I previously had a HTC desire and this sh*ts all over it. However, on my HTC I was able to just hit one button and it collated all duplicated contacts together (from numerous backups to my sd card, from gmail, from hotmail etc) and it gave me a custom list including my contacts, their emails and facebook pics (if they were on fb). I have managed to collate them by making a custom account (somehow) however i still have many duplicates is there any easy way of over coming this other than me wiping all contacts and then editing the ones on my gmail account and then grabbing them back on the phone? and ... also how do you get the phone to grab your friends profile pics from facebook as their contact display?

    Plus - just thought I'd mention GTA III on the Sammy GS3 is the best download I have ever made.

    Thanks!

    I think theres apps to "merge" contacts and a few custom dialers do it (Go Contacts) but as i remember, it was a pain in the ***. It doesnt really bother me as i never browse through contacts, i just search.

    As for facebook, add facebook in "accounds and sync" setting

    Your micrsoSD card is FAT32 file system, which has an addressing limitation of 4gb. So files nearing 4GB and exceeding it will not be compatible with your microSD. The phones internal storage however is capable of handling it. So instead of trying to copy the file/movie directly to the micro sd card, copy it to the phones storage. It will work.

    Thanks, I will try that. But let me tell you that it used to work, but lately it doesn't.

    I've tried a couple of times to root my AT&T S3 (4.0.4) using Odin3. I'm able to get the phone into download mode, execute Odin3, display the yellow under ID:COM, select PDA, and click Start. In the messages section, I receive 4 lines:
    • <ID:0/005> Added!!
    • <ID:0/005> Odin v.3 engine (ID:5)..
    • <ID:0/005> File analysis..
    • <ID:0/005> Setup connection..

    The process never complete: the phone never reboots, and the "Recovery" message never appears on the Odin screen. I have to take the battery out and put it back in for the phone to reboot, and I assume it's not rooted. I need to do this to try to recover the "Camera" folder containing pictures that I stupidly deleted. I used to jailbreak my iPhone, but I can't seem to get this to work. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, and Merry Christmas.

    Hi does anyone know how to or if you can set a different notification tone for texts from application notifications as I can only see it in settings for all notifications.which is annoying as every time the sound goes off I jump thinking it's a text and it's some random stupid app! Surely we should be able to differentiate between texts and other stupid notifications? texts shouldn't be bundled with all the other they should be separate and you should be able to have a different tone and have option to turn others off? Any ideas x

    Unhappy Re: I've got the Samsung Galaxy S3, ASK ME QUESTIONS!

    hi,

    I have the same exact problem that Tom's facing.
    I have done nothing apart from upgrading to JB 4.1.1 a month back.
    I was at work and after attending an incoming call I placed the phone on desk and saw it rebooting automatically.
    then, it went to the normal screen and to my surprise all was lost.
    The icon customization, the widget placement, my contacts and messages. It was as If I was switching the phone for the first time giving me tips to use the phone.
    I then rebooted the phone as it was not displaying any thing in gallery (pics, videos ..) and failed to detect the mem card.
    On reboot it never complete the process and stuck on the boot logo nor it goes to recovery mode. Phone just restarts while entering the recovery mode. Does not even show the recovery screen.
    then I tried to boot to the ODIN mode and land up here.
    So, visited the Samsung service center and they say that I have rooted the mobile and denied repairing my phone.
    Where as I never ever tried rooting the phone. they do not want to believe me as see me at fault.
    Can you please help..

    the settings should be within each app m8 but since youre on the GT, buy Light Flow app and itl let you control every part of every notification frm each app lol including LED colour, flash rate, tone and vibration pattern
    the US versions have problems with it

    bro ive heard of same thing and im horrified to say that if you cant fix it (try XDA forums), youre gona have to pay to get it fixed.
    i really feel for u. i have modded my phone so i dont deserve a warranty but u havent
    plz try the more advanced sites for your model and carrier and be as clear as possible how it happened.
    dont give samsung your money, the screen turns on so its not dead.
    good luck man and plz let us know how u get on :beer:
