Getting Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1: Newbie Questions


Thursday 13th of June 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hi Guys, New here. Getting the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 soon ♥ . Can you help answer the following questions:1. Does the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 have Gorilla Glass for the screen? If not, what kind of glass is it? Just want to take care of it as best as I can.2. Does it come with any AV protection and could anyone recommend a program? I see a few folks have recommended AVG. Is it free and good enough?3. Checking out cases, and can someone recommend one that will really protect it, esp. if it's dropped [on no!!!]4. Has anyone attached a flash drive to it through USB? Getting an adapter, can it be done?5. Can you make calls with it? If so, does it go through a carrier and then you have to pay for it? Assuming I would. Ellen [a Bowzerbird Angry Bird]

Problems with note 3


Tuesday 08th of October 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Has anyone noticed that the Galaxy Note 3 appears to have consistently lower signal strength then a galaxy note 2 . I've tested both side by side driving down the road and it is apparent to the point that I will drop calls on the Note 3 in areas that never dropped calls on the Galaxy Note 2 Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using AC Forums mobile app

Samsung Galaxy - Cracked Screen Defect, not dropped, Note 3 & Note 2, S4 & S3


Monday 04th of November 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
On October 19, 2013, I purchased a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for $349.99 plus taxes of $21.00 at Best Buy store (1087) in York, PA. At a quick glance it seemed like there was nothing wrong with it. The next day I noticed a slight refracting thin line of glare on the screen while web browsing and watching Youtube. I thought it was maybe a finger prints or something. Upon further inspection of the the phone on that day, I noticed it was a small scratch, nick, or something under the screen of the phone. It was located approximately one inch from the top left hand side of the phone toward the middle of the screen. I tried calling Bust Buy, but it was after regular business hours. With further normal use of the phone (charging, texting, phone calls, using GPS, and web browsing) I realized it was getting bigger. It began spread from top of the screen to the bottom of the screen. Remind you I have just gotten the phone. I did not drop it, apply any pressure to the screen or handle it wrong in any way. I called the Best Buy store again on during normal business hours where I purchased the phon

Battery Issue with the Note 3


Monday 18th of November 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hi guys. A month a go i bought a UK (Vodafone) Note 3 and i must say i love the phone. The first couple of weeks the Note started crashing every time i was about start an app or type something, so it went back to vodafone and they replaced it with a new one. So far after reading reviews more about the Note 3, I hear people are claiming they are getting a day and half of battery life at least on a single charge ( heavy use). But mines doesn't last a day if i watch a few youtube videos, Facebook and whatsapp. This afternoon i finished charging my phone at 2pm then i opened the Facebook app for no more than 2min then the battery dropped 2% from a 100. So now its 11.50pm and i've got 45% battery life left and all i've been doing is going on Facebook for 10mins made 3 phone calls (less than 2mins) Watched two 15secs video clip and sent 6 messages. Doesn't sound right on the Noe 3 right? I read a post about a guy who watched a 2hour video on full brightness and only took 10% of battery life. So what should i do guys? my Gps Bluetooth are all off and the brightness is set to auto.

Dropped calls and data connectivity (sprint)


Thursday 28th of November 2013 / androidforums.com
I'm planning on getting a new note 3 and when reading around on the device I see that a lot of people been experiencing dropped calls and poor connectivity to the internet. I also noticed there was an update to correct the dropped call issue but no one ever commented on weather it improved. Everything looks great on the device but I would hate to not be able to make quality calls and have poor internet and wifi connections. Any input would be great. Btw I have sprint as a carrier, thanks

Galaxy Note 3 - Dropping service signal


Monday 02nd of December 2013 / androidforums.com
I took ownership of my Note 3 on Friday. A lovely phone, even better if I could make calls from it and text! All ok on Friday. Then Saturday it dropped signal and since haven't been able to get signal since. The phone seems to be recieving data streaming ok, Like emails etc. Though I can't get phone signal. Can't make/recieve calls nor text. Its getting very annoying. I visited the vodaphone store today. They replaced the SIM card. I waited an hour until turned it on and the same problem appeared again. I managed to get signal for first 20 seconds then it shut off. This is the same everytime. I get about 1 min of service and send a text then it completely drops the signal saying no service. Has anyone else had this issue with there Note 3. I have raised this with Vodaphone UK, though they reckon it's the network. I think a faulty phone.

Finally got good service.


Sunday 15th of December 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Ok so here goes. Been with Sprint sense 1999 and nextel before that. Well in my area Charlotte NC, I bought the s3 about a year and a half ago. There was no 4g lte service at the time. I was told oh in a month or so you will be getting it. Well of course that did not happen. Then finally about 6 months ago it all started the BIG UPGRADE to 4glte. Whoopie damn doo. It has been a cluster ever sense. when you could get 4 G it was much slower then 3 g and you would have 4 bars and the internet would not even work. After numerous calls to sprint only to be told that they are working on it only about 2 weeks and will be done. All BS the service is terriable you cant talk on phone for 2 min with out being dropped..One day I had just had it call them up told them I wanted out of my contract or I was going to sue them for a service I was paying for and was not getting. To my surprise they said ok we will let you out.. The next day I changed over to another carrier to the note 3. WOW I had no idea that phone service can be so good. Never a dropped call and internet is as fast as my cable at ho

Samsung Range Extender Issues.


Sunday 29th of December 2013 / androidforums.com
I have a metal roof on my house so it raises He?? with the wireless signal in the house. So back in October I purchased a range Extender for in the house. It worked fine for a while but now I have been having issues with it. Poor Call quality, dropped calls, and so on. Verizon of course blamed it on my Internet provider. My service is bonded dsl 25 Meg down 2up with Frontier. They now given me the latest Router/Modem on the market. checked my lines and quality of service at the main office twice.Now for phone's I have a Note 3 a S/4 Mini and a Nokia 928. The one with the most issues seems to be the mini. Though they all seem to have issues. So to me it has to be the Extender. I have opened two tickets to no avail. Should I be pushing for a replacement do you think? I consider myself pretty tech savy but I must admit the technology behind this device I don't completely understand? The unit cost over $200.00 so I guess my expectations are pretty high. So what would you all do? You folks out there with this device know any tricks I might try??? Help ?

G4 Mini Dropping Calls


Monday 06th of January 2014 / androidforums.com
I run a network extender in my house from Samsung. Besides my Mini I have a Note 3 and a Nokia 928. The Mini will drop a call, just dropped no fuzzy or weak signal just gone. Even when you are sitting right next to the extender. Off the extender it seems fine. My other phones work great on both. I am kinda stumped?
