Re: Please post your Samsung Galaxy S III problems here

1) Main complain is still lack of 4g in Houston...Heck, I still can't see one time it turn 4g yet.

2) I keep getting the stupid Voice Mail is pending message even though I already deleted it. Rebooting the phone solved it but yeah, it's a huge annoyance. Never have this issue on any of my previous HTC phones.

3) No Aps2SD option...pretty much make the microsd slot useless.

Re: Please post your Samsung Galaxy S III problems here

I've had issues for the past 3 days now. Either my wi-fi is connecting on it's own when I have it switched off, which is annoying! And now the biggest issue is that I can't connect to my home wi-fi router at all. I've checked all the settings, the password, etc. and my phone just keeps going through the scanning and connecting stages but never fully connects to the network. I've reset the router and my phone, on top of removing the connection from my phone and entering it in about 100 times and still the same issue!! With wi-fi off, my battery drains so much faster!! There needs to be some type of fix for this!!!

Re: Please post your Samsung Galaxy S III problems here

I have the SAME EXACT issues... I am considering using my old EVO instead of the new one or this s3 becuase of these problems.. The screen is pretty and the features are fun. Great. I have to stand across the street to reply to a text because the phone wont try and resend on its own and I otherwise will have to sit and hit resend for fifteen minutes until it finds a spot of reception. My WiFi works great - I hardly have 3g (I know it exsists, I had it 100% of the time on my old EVO), too bad texting and phone calls dont run on WiFi. I have resorted to communicating through Google Talk because it runs on WiFi, but not everyone has that app. I would NOT reccomend spending money on a phone like this when all its going to cause is a strong urge to throw it across the room. If you want a pretty phone, get it. If you want one that gets reception and features are actually usable you'd be better off with a banana.

@DaisyAndOrchid - My WiFi was connecting on its own too, but I fixed it - its in Settings > More Settings > Mobile Networks > Automatic Connections >UNCHECK Sprint Auto Connection... Such an annoying feature!

Re: Please post your Samsung Galaxy S III problems here

its supposed to help with those that forget to turn their connections off when no longer in that area..not to mention being on wifi when you can will help improve battery life...

Re: Please post your Samsung Galaxy S III problems here

I am sorry, I was assuming that people buying phones of this "quality" knew when they wanted their WiFi on or not.. Also What is the link you posted stating it would help if we went there? Am I viewing it wrong or is it just more threads of people talking about their issues and complaints? I dont see anything helpful in there telling me how to fix the problems were speaking about :/

Re: Please post your Samsung Galaxy S III problems here

that would be the link directly into the SIII forums..where most go for answers or to post their issues with that actual phone..people will find answers quicker and get quicker responces to their problems if they post in the actual forum for their phone...

Re: Please post your Samsung Galaxy S III problems here

unfortunatley not all know that running wifi saves on their battery..you see it all the time in here. the newer style phones are coming out with this connections optimizer pre installed..which is why there is no longer a toggle to switch on/off 4G LTE..only options would be going into settings and changing it from CDMA to LTE/CDMA..its automatically chosing for you the better/stronger connection.

Yeah, I keep my LTE/CDMA off - since there arent any towers up yet near me so theres not really any point to running it... Still waiting on an update to find out when Miami/Fort Lauderdale will get LTE.

Touch sounds and haptic feedback keep turning themselves on 1-3 times per day, and I'm turning them off in settings.  This is getting old.  I hate TouchWiz.
