Thoughts? Recommendations? Suggestions? Also, does anyone know if have a security program ...

in the T-Mobile forum

It's not that I'm super hesitant, I just don't want to deal with a mountain of issues. The T-Mobile rep said now that the patch has been put out it is being advised to update because otherwise I won't be ready for the next update which is JellyBean. Mainly I am asking to get a sense of whether or not the patch resolved all the quirks and if people were happy overall with ICS. As it ...

I was told earlier that there were issues by TMobile reps but those seem to be resolved with subsequent patches. I called into TMobile today for a different issue and was advised by the rep that I definitely need to update to ICS. Previous responses in the the phonescoop forums still make me hesitant thus any any and all opinions, thoughts, suggestions welcome.

Future for Galaxy Owners

It is still fresh news but I am wondering what this "victory" means for Samsung lovers who own any of the Galaxy phones. In South Korea my understanding is that Samsung has to stop selling the GS II. Any thoughts?

in the Android forum

Hello, I just got a new Android device (TMobile, Samsung Galaxy S II) and have been researching SMS apps but cannot really tell them apart. Any recommendations for a good SMS app? Also, for the tech wizards here, how does one override text messaging going through one's carrier vs. an SMS app? Thus far I have looked at Go SMS Pro and IM+. I am aware of KikMessenger but something about it doesn't sit right with ...

Best/Fastest way to charge devices

Is it better to charge one's device via the computer or through an outlet? I know one method takes much longer than the other but what I am wondering if one way is more efficient or preferred for certain devices. Thanks!

Is it my imagination or has the traffic on Phonescoop decreased dramatically? I used to get rapid responses to questions and concerns I posted in the forums but not the as much anymore... Have people migrated to other venues, forums, boards, sites? It would be really helpful to know where to go to get the most up-to-date information from active users and those in the know.

Protective Film Suggestions?
Jul 9, 2012, 3:59 PM
in the Accessories forum

Does anyone have a protective film on their device, and if so, which brand? I had my device waterproofed (Liquipel) and they also applied Gadget Filmz to the screen but less than a week after getting it back two air bubbles have appeared thus I am looking for an alternative though I was sent a replacement by the company but the application process looks like too much work.

Alarm Clock is now a hit and miss. Go to the Tmobile Forums tons of issues.

Hello, So I recall there being a brouhaha in the tech world earlier this year about Carrier IQ but in all the articles, blog posts, etc. I do not recall what the final word was on the issue and what, if anything, device owners can do. I just got a new smartphone and downloaded an app which detected Carrier IQ was on my phone. What can I do about this and should I worry about it? BTW, I have ...

8O Thanks for the advice... Hopefully these are just initial glitches and once they get fixed I can upgrade as I am presuming support for Gingerbread will be phased out over time.

How hard is it to convert from Gingerbread to ICS or OSes in general? I have a Samsung Galaxy S II and current reports are that TMobile is going to push out ICS upgrade for this phone next week. For one I am guessing I may not have the choice whether or not to upgrade but as this is my first smartphone device all of this stuff is new to me.

Anyone have any experience with or opinion of Ballistic cases? Since it seems clear that Otterbox is not going to make a case for the T-Mobile version of the G S II (WTF?!?! It seems like Otterbox caters completely to the Apple "gods" and everyone else is SOL) :evil: :evil: :evil: I have to accept reality and find an alternative.
