    Anybody know a cheap place to buy a s3 sum free. I really want one but contract terms and prices are crazy shit here if you want to get a decent phone.

    Depends what you mean by cheap. I paid about 455 through amazon 6 weeks ago, which ain't cheap, but had no option as my other phone was on its last legs.

    But yeah, other than that it's just showing the weather and a shit random pub I've never been to.
    Mine does the traffic which I do find useful, as it has allowed me to take a different route a couple of times.

    Also got it set up to tell me about football games.

    I'm using a 4.12 Rom on the SG2, and it's incredibly smooth.

    How do you get it to tell you about football scores?

    I mean, as cheap as is possible at present.

    Can probably pick one up for around 450 on adverts.ie, just wondering if there is anyone who has seen it online for similarish money.

    On the Google now Page select show more cards, then sample cards then click the settings for the sports tab. I Think it also picks up when you Google a specific team

    Best podcast app? I've got poweramp, is there a say to download the podcasts automatically and just have them appear in poweramp?

    @mrcrumley If you've not realised yet, yes it's supposed to be a .tar file - it's what Odin will flash to the device.

    I've been messing about with some custom roms on the S3 since the official Samsung Jellybean was for me a bit underwhelming performance wise and kept giving that process.com.google has fucked up message.

    Much snappier since having the custom roms on there. Having TouchWiz sitting on top wasn't really a big deal but I have to say I don't miss it after heading back to what is essentially stock Jellybean.

    Leave the tar file as it is, use odin to flash in PDA mode. Been a while but I think that's all you need to do.

    How on earth can I stop junk email getting through, it's driving me mental.
    Yahoo is filtering it out but it's still getting through the shitty stock app and there's nothing I can do. Aaarrrgghh.

    There is. Subscribe to rss feeds and then download thw audio and have your audio plauer of choice find the files.

    Alternatively, get a dedicated podcast app (I like pocketcasts) and put your feeds in there and it'll do everything for you.

    My first recommendation would be to stop using Yahoo, but that's not very helpful. You could try another e-mail app, I'm sure there are loads out there. I don't know how easy it'd be to stop the stock one running though.

    Is there a way to uninstall latest update and install previous one as my phone is sooooo slow now

    Doggcatcher us the best podcast app. It's really good. Podkicker is also worth a look.

    And my phone seems quicker than ever after the update, although that's probably due to it not having to redraw the home screen all the time.

  • Deleted user 13 November 2012 22:19:12
    Have a Google or look on YouTube. Plenty of good guides about.

    Not linking anything here for obvious reasons.

    Why, it's not illegal to root your phone.

    What the fuck did Samsung do with the jellybean updates though?! It's totally fucked up the performance.

    Bumders.

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    It has to be linked with something specific you have done or installed on your phone. I know enough people that have upgraded and none have said they have issues. Being the IT person at work oddly im the first person they ask.

    Edit: actually all the people I know having this phone are on orange/tmo or three. Are you on 02 or Voda?
