    Where in the browser settings are you finding this? I don't see it anywhere.
    You also need to update to the latest version

    Open Samsung browser and at the top there are three dots, press 3 dots, scroll down to settings, scroll down and a heading will be personal information. Open that and change the selections.

    Don't have that setting on T-Mobile Note 8.

    Update : I use Samsung Internet Beta by default so that setting isn't there. I did find it in the normal Samsung Browser.

    Anyone else use the VR? I got the one for the Note using my Samsung Rewards points. But I'm not finding a lot to do with it.

    I got the VR for my Note 5 and you're absolutely right. It's fun for a day or two but that's about it

    You're not the only one. I didn't get a VR for my Note 8 after getting two free last year for the S7 Edge promo. When I got the first one, I used it for an hour and then put it back in the box where it's sat and never ever used again. The second one is still unopened in the shipping box. I was just unimpressed from the image quality to the selection of videos to watch.

    I used to use Beautiful Widgets way back mostly on my HTC's think I paid for it. How does it work on the Note 8? Doesn't slow your phone down does it? Maybe I'll try it again.

    Why don't you just use the clock I use... Beautiful Widgets. I tap on the clock to get my alarm and the weather to get my favorite weather app...https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...7d7f8af6f0.jpg

    My FM radio works now through my speaker stupid me it was my cable and the case I was using cause it works with my husbands phone and his Spigen case. We figured out it was my case silly me.

    Turn off all your data and tell me if your Radio still works. There is no AM or FM receiver circuitry in these units.

    I'm curious what information bothers you that they could have and what do you think it could be used for?

    It's not really something that was "discovered", but I absolutely love the unobtrusive text message notifications! That small bubble is amazing, especially for such a large screen. Don't know if I'll lose it when I finally switch to another app from the stock one but it's helped keep me on the stock app 😂
    Funnily enough, if you turn off the Edge Light function, this turns back into the pop down notification which you can reply to!

    And another thing I've found useful is to click in the end of the pen before sliding it in, that way you don't have to put an awkward amount of pressure on it, it just slides right in!

    No problem! I stumbled across it on another forum. I thought it was a great feature and couldn't understand why they removed it! Very strange it's connected to the edge light function.

    Hi Matt how cool was learning that feature from you. I had a minor glitch where I had to go into settings>APPS>MORE OPTIONS>SPECIAL ACCESS>APPS THAT APPEAR ON TOP>SELECT MESSAGES. Then voila I had that new fun pop up that I can reply to. I don't need edge lighting turned on as I downloaded a free app for it as my edge lighting stock has never worked. Thanks lots.

    I found that you can program Bixby to answer questions any way you want. She is talking dirty to my wife!! My wife is so mad. It's so funny.
    I couldn't find that in the settings. Where is it located?

    I found that the live focus photos cause a bit of mayhem in the Google photos app if you use that for backing up. That is; when you swap back and fourth from the closeup to the wide angle in gallery, it'll create a new image in Google photos each time... But only 4 times. From then on, you can delete the first 3 photos that were uploaded to google photos, and the last one will then update each time you swap back and fourth in the gallery app. Weird, but you can work around it of you can be bothered!

    Probably the worst kept secret but I have a habit of pressing on the phone where the home button is to turn the phone screen on. I discovered there is a haptic button there that will turn the phone screen on when the screen is off. Pretty cool
    Thank you. This is very helpful.

    It works for me. I think it's a setting. Display-Navigation Bar - Unlock with Home Button - turn that on.

    I've discovered that you can use your N8 has a hotspot even though connected to WiFi. Doing so, you will be using the WiFi connection data & not your data plan

    While I do understand what you are saying, I don't understand why it would be necessary. If there is wi-fi available, why wouldn't any other devices that can connect to the Note 8 just connect to the wi-fi network?

    To a laptop or desktop with a broken wifi receiver. The Note 8 can act as the wifi receiver and tether it to the computer.

    I guess 1 reason would be to share password protected WiFi. Also, my office won't allow my Chromecast to connect to the WiFi, this way I can.
