Just switched from iphone 4S, please help.
Hello, I just changed over from a 4S to an S3 and thus far it has been tough to make the change. I have a couple of issues that I'm hoping can be resolved on this new phone. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
1. I have no idea if there is an update to Jelly Bean, I've read that there is but my built in updater says nothing is available. Can I update with factory software?
2. I used Samsung's Easy Phone Sync program to move over contacts, pictures, etc. The only problem is that I had a lot of text messages on my iPhone and have let it sync overnight and it has only finished with one person's text thread. Everytime I try to go into that thread I can scroll up about one screen and then it crashes the ap. I have removed the 200 text limit so that I can keep all my old text messages, but it appears that the built in messenger does not archive old texts like the iphone does. Is there any way to keep all my texts, or archive them like the iphone? Or is the Galaxy limited to having only 200 texts in storage. Seems like a pretty big drawback so far.
3. I had to manually stop the Easy Phone Sync process, because it drained my battery from full to zero overnight, and I'm guessing it uses a ton of computing power. Is this most likely the sync application and not just normal battery life for the S3?
4. The front of the phone seems extremely hot all the time, and this is fresh out of the box with auto-dim enabled, is this phone always this hot?
5. The built in browser also seems very slow to react to button pushes and clicks on the device, is this normal?
Please let me know any tips and tricks for an Android noob, I would like to love this phone but these issues are a little strange. Please let me know what I should do with the text syncing process, since I manually stopped it after one text thread, and I have 4 years of texts that function fine on my iPhone. I know that most people will say delete them, but that doesn't seem like a great indicator of the Galaxy compared to the 4S if the 4S stores them with no problem and the Galaxy can't. Is there any way to keep them? If not, then will I constantly only be able to have a running limit of 200-500 texts saved?
