Considering Vodafone's 3G network is rubbish at best where I live, half the places I go I was stuck on G or E speeds which is useless for anything but texts/calls and who uses there phone for that these days I have very little faith that their 4G will be any better. Switching to 3 who admittedly has poor CS but excellent 3G speeds.
Sorry Samsung but my next tablet will have an ARM chip inside.
Well they'll have one more fibre customer this Wednesday as my cabinet is finally ready 18 months after my exchange was enabled.
I'm with TalkTalk and get just short of 12mbs. Our exchange was FTTC enabled about 18 months ago, but never bothered with the cabinet that services us. We finally got an enabled date of 31/3/2013 and at the end of January they started fitting the cabinet and bit by bit I saw them blowing the fibre in and then they dug up the road to get power to it. Been very little action on it for past month but now the enablement date has gone to 31/3/2014!!!! WTF!
I pay £24.12 to Sky a month for every channel and because of this i'm forced to pay the BBC £12.12 a month.
I've checked the planner and not one thing recorded or due to be recorded are on any BBC channel. The only thing I like to watch on the BBC is Top Gear which is about 7 hours a year.
I never watch TV live as I prefer recording stuff and watching later so I can fast forward through the adverts. I don't think its fair that I should be forced to pay 50% of what I pay to sky for a couple of tv channels I never watch.
I've got a Lexar 32GB Class 10 in my S3, no issues at all and had it in phone almost since launch :)
What and all the nonsense lawsuits that Apple keep filing are good for shareholders?
My exchange was enabled late 2011, I live about 1.5 mile from exchange and can't get infinity. Noone could tell me when or if my cabinet would ever be enabled so I contacted my local MP and she wrote to them. They wrote back saying it will be enabled by 31st March 2013, so let's see if they do.
Re: Android phones running 2.3 still being sold
Actually your 3GS runs a cut down version of ios 6 compared to the version that is on the iphone 5.
I've got two really old android phones here which while officially will never go higher than the 2.3.7 they were supplied with, they both are running cyanogenmod 4.1.2 which has transformed the phones.
700mhz single core but has 2GB ram? Something not right there.
Having owned quite a few Andoid phones and two tablets since introduction starting with 2.0 I believe was my first device and 4.2.1 which runs on my nexus 7 I can honestly say I've not had a single bit of malware on any of my Android devices. I think all the people that claim to of been attacked by malware have probably downloaded a pirated app from a dodgy website infected with it. As i've never ran a dodgy app on any of my devices it could explain why i've never been infected.

Elbow'ing your way through was a little bit harder in DD2 as the button combo changed depending on which way you were facing, or was that DD3? Used to love this game, for 10p you got all the way to the end, these days arcade games are £1-2 a go and usually after a minute or two they want that again.
I got mine from Tesco with a 10% off coupon so only paid £180 anyway but might as well try my luck for the £25 voucher. Nothing to lose and to be fair not fussed either way it was a bargain at £180.
I'd love them to be bought out by Samsung, that would be so funny. Just as long as they put the prices up on supplying screens to apple.
I've got one on 3 as I get no coverage where I live and I had to pay £50 for the box, but then again i'm only on the £6.90 sim only plan and the £50.50 I get from Topcashback will of paid for the box so i'm happy.
I asked about what happens to my data allowance when i'm connected to the box that uses my broadband connection and they said as it still routes through 3's servers then it still comes out of my allowance so i'll still be doing the big downloading using my home wifi.
I personally hope he doesn't get extradited because he committed a crime in the UK so deserves to be tried here using UK laws. However saying that all this can't be extradited from health reasons we have heard from him and in the case of the hook handed sub-human are just ridiculous. If you commit a crime you deserve the consequences.
crApple would hardly bankrupt Samsung. All these lawsuits are trying to achieve is to block the biggest mobile phone maker in the world who they are losing market share to. Rather pathetic really.
I have a Samsung fridge freezer 4 years old, Samsung 55" 3D TV 2.5 years old, Samsung 32" LED TV 2 years old, Samsung 32" LED TV 1 year old, Samsung 3D blu ray player 2 years old, a Samsung laptop 18 months old and a Samsung Galaxy S 3. I've owned quite a few Samsung phones over the years, D500, D600, D900, E900, i8910 Omnia HD, Galaxy S, Galaxy S II and Galaxy Nexus and I think I've even owned a Samsung camera in the past which I sold. My mother has a Samsung LCD 32" TV which is 3 years old and my brother has a Samsung LCD 32" TV that is probably 6 years old. I've also had various Samsung internal and external hard drives over the years too.
The freezer section of my fridge freezer did fail within the first year of ownership but Samsung were quick to send an engineer out to replace a part and it has been fine since. The only other problem i've had is the dog chewing through the laptop charging lead which meant I had to buy a new charger but that wasn't Samsung's fault. Statistically speaking from my own personal experience and YMMV but Samsung has been very reliable for me and I can safely say my next TV will be a Samsung and my next phone will more than likely be a Samsung Galaxy S 4 unless another Android phone comes out that is better.
I already have a slim PS3 and IMHO the price on the new one is not realistic. The 12GB model should be closer to the XBOX 4GB model for it to sell. I know I won't be getting the super slim like I did going from fat to slim previously.
Noone would queue for Samsung stuff because their not sad pathetic losers. I pre-ordered my SGS III and received it on day of release with zero fuss, as did quite a few of my friends. People that queue for the latest shiny shiny are stupid.
While I don't agree that such a ridiculous thing can be patented I still don't see why they don't do it the overscroll glow effect like my samsung phone does which I much prefer to the bounce back anyway. Its bat shit crazy that a court can order devices destroyed for such a teeny tiny trivial piece of nonsense.
I don't care how ugly they are they can place one in my front garden if it means I can get fibre on our fibre enabled exchange, which only seems to make it at best a mile from exchange and anyone who lives further away....tough :(
As much as I hate crapple with a passion I have to agree with the judge on this, they can't be held accountable for smashed screens due to being dropped. I regularly change iphone screens for friends and the occasional back panel which keeps me in pocket money. In fact some are even on 2nd and even 3rd screen. Up to now though only had one smashed s2 and one smashed s3 screen. Oh and I know more people with galaxy's as well so proportionately its mainly the jesus mobe that breaks. But in every case its the user's fault, not manufacturers.
Doesn't state which Samsung phones they are trading in. Chances are they are just trading in old Galaxy S 1's or even 2's to replace them with Galaxy S III's. Only a fanboi would suggest they are jumping to the dark side because of a biased court judgement.
I bought a Galaxy S III, but crapple didn't lose a sale because i'd never buy anything from them. Its crazy that a court essentially let them own the phone/tablet market because of a few stupid patents/trade dress that should never of been issued in the first place.
Or just get an Ovivo Mobile sim card for a one-off £5 and get 200 mins, 200 texts, 500mb of internet every month for free. Been using them a few months now and also run on the Vodafone network. I'll stick with these thanks.
I had my eyes done at Optimax at Newcastle about 6-7 years ago, both done by epi-lasik in 15 minutes and corrected astigmatism at same time. Think I paid around £850 at the time, completely painless getting it done although once the anaesthetic started to wear off it was rather painful, but worth it IMHO.
Can honestly say that was the best £850 I've ever spent but maybe I was lucky as I experienced zero side effects.
The only solution to this problem is when a company is awarded a spurious patent like this and then said company try to sue someone for using this system then the USPO should be held accountable for the rogue patent being granted by both firing the idiot that granted it and make them pay all the legal fees involved. I'm sure then the USPO would due the correct thing and check that future patents aren't so obvious!
Re: Why Android and not iPhone for my sister.
Doesn't make a difference what sim card is in the phone, when Vodafone push the update out then the phone will know and update the user.
Sky are the only supplier who truly doesn't have any limits - no traffic management, no stupid limits on how much you can download. Its no wonder why people are switching to Sky broadband. My only gripe is since switching from O2 to Sky I went from syncing at 15000/1900 to 13800/900, so it is slightly slower but I had no choice O2 had major issues in my exchange which meant on a night I was getting slower than dial up speeds and I was getting nowhere with O2 on when this would be sorted out. But as for there tv service, once my 1/2 price offer ends in November it will be getting switched off.
There's already an apk on xda to re-enable universal search. Personally I've never used it on my SGS III, but when the custom rom I run on my phone gets updated to BLG6 I'll install the APK if its not already, simply to put two fingers up at crapple
Basic cost £40, price after all the patent trolls demand payment for using their patents £1000
Apple can do the immediate to all as there's only a couple of devices with known hardware so making an update that will work on those few devices will take very little work. With Android there's loads of manufacturers each using different screen sizes, different processors, different amounts of ram, different chipsets to support all features on the phones which all require different drivers to support them.
I just got rid of my Nexus to get an S III, so will have to wait a bit for JB, but i'm not going to sit and cry over how long Samsung take to release it as chances are once Cyanogen release a version for S III i'll probably switch to that, then maybe go back to stock JB once Samsung release it.
Just download SamyGo Remote from the play store. It works fine with my Samsung 3D TV.
Actually if you actually watch the video i'd say your not watching the actual cctv footage but someone has recorded the cctv footage on there phone as if you look at the time at the top left that moves with the image too, which it wouldn't do if you were merely watching a faked video.
Even if crapple managed to patent troll every other phone maker out of making phones I still wouldn't buy anything from them. I'd hang onto my galaxy s3 forever in that case.
When I took my car to a main dealer they recommend I buy genuine parts from them. I didn't have to buy those genuine parts and could go to local car parts dealer and buy OEM parts. Surely the garage weren't being anti competitive or should they face the same fate?
Anyone who would buy a Galaxy Nexus is not the type of person who buys an iphone. Unless of course they are developers for both operating systems in which case they would buy both phones and therefore crapple have not lost a sale.
So to say that it should be banned to avoid potential loss to crapple is ridiculous.
The patents in question should be voided as they should never of been granted in the first place.
"a patent for eliminating noise and interference during voice and data transmissions", surely this isn't NEEDED to make a phone, so why should they have to license it under FRAND terms?
Nice screen, shame about the brand logo. But hopefully other laptop makers will stop putting 15" screens with the resolution of phones with a 4" screen in
