    Congrats. :lo5:


    I hope you turned off imessage before you turned it in. Make sure your friends have their iPhones set to 'send as SMS'. Otherwise shit apple will still send as imessage and you won't get texts.

    So far (with the exception of the text issues), I love it. $49, no upgrade fee but I did have to buy a 64gb microSD card...

    I asked an IT guy I know which was better and he said he laughed at Samsung because they were butthurt they couldnt copy iphones ideas anymore. Is there any truth to this? I have an upgrade coming up and am trying to decide :dontknow:

    I have the iphone 4 and love it and have a Droid 4 also from work that I hate so I am skeptical about the Samsung

    I learned from experience. Just thought I would pass it on. :hat:

    I went into iTunes and turned everything off through there, but that didn't fix the problem. I heard that it takes a few months for it to shut off/logout on it's own. Not sure. I just had everyone that I text make sure they had their crapple phone set correctly and haven't had any problems since.

    The text issue is an Apple problem, so don't give in to it!! I had people harassing me, "You need to go back!!" Why would I switch back to the phone that's causing all the problems?? :scratch:

    this is true. apple innovated for so long and everyone else just had to copy. apple is still ahead of the curve with the 64 bit processor and, of course, samsung is copying that. now samsung is at the head of the pack and they have to finally innovate. they will fail.

    Just got a Samsung Galaxy S3 for the old man this week ...Jesus, what a load of shit that thing is. Feels totally rinky-dink to me (after using my iPhone-5) ....Reminds me of when you're stuck buying an off-brand soda, and drinking it just reminds you of how good a real Pepsi would be right about then ....I don't miss playin' in the Droid world at ALL !! They still have a lot of catching up to do, in my opinion

    it's my first android OS so I can't compare it to anything else but I love it. I am 100% immersed in google. They run my life and it runs like a well oiled mac-hine.

    I was very very close to getting that HTC but couldn't justify the cost. I bought unlocked and contract free so it was quite a bit more
