Anyone notice...

The various battery times for each carrier's model of the GS III?

T-Mobile and AT&T are showing 8 hours. Verizon is showing 15 hours. Sprint and US Cellular are showing 9.2 hours.

Some seriously oddball battery times.
There are some technology differences. LTE vs. HSPA+, for example.

However, I think most of what you're seeing is simply different ways of measuring battery life. Unfortunately, the industry has yet to adopt a standard for measuring such things. So...

T-Mobile GS3 now has LTE support with JB update

After I got the update I checked Smile in the mobile network settings it has LTE/GSM/WCDMA (Auto mode) so I contacted Samsung support and they said this update does support LTE. Very Happy

UPDATE: I just did a online chat with Samsung support through it's website and they confirmed the this new update does support LTE please see below.

Please wait for a Samsung Agent to respond.

You are now chatting with 'Mikayla'. There will be a brief survey at the end of our chat to share feedback on my performance today.

Your Issue ID for this chat is LTK56402017979X

Mikayla: Hi, thank you for contacting Samsung Technical Support. How may I help you today?

Mikayla: We have not heard from you. Do you wish to continue the chat?

Visitor: Hi Mik...

Shweeeet....... Still has that Touchwiz camera handicap though

Awesome improvement in every way but the inability to initiate the camera during a phone call is as iritating as ever....
I cannot recall a single instance where I've had to take a picture while on a phone call

This is great! Will my Galaxy Note and/or Galaxy S II get updated?

I'm glad my GSIII received Jelly Bean , now how about the other phones ? Galaxy Note (original) and the GSII ?
They're still working on those two, but from everything I've heard both WILL be getting the update.

Eventually. I doubt that is top of their priorities though.

I know they were working on it already, iirc they had gotten those two to a final te...

Mobile Hotspot Question

I currently have the MyTouch 4G. I use the mobile hotspot on my phone to provide internet for my laptop. I've never had to pay the $20 fee (or however much it is) to use the hotspot...and I have been using it just like this for almsot 2 years now and I use right aroud 5G's of data a month. Can I do this on this phone....or when I go to "turn on the hotspot feature" will it not allow me because I don't have the "paid hotspot" feature on my account?

Can someone test this or that already as knowledge let me know!

Thanks!
I can't state as far as the Samung Galaxy S III is concerned, although I would think they would require the mobile hotspot feature for the phone.

But I also have the Mytouch 4G and was using the mobile hotspot feature for about a year, and never wa...

HSPA+ on all bands?

Does anyone know if HSPA+ is available on all bands? I am considering buying this phone full price from T-Mobile, unlocking it and using it on AT&T until I can get off-contract.
Bad news... the specs are wrong:

UMTS 850 / AWS / 2100

So if you're in an AT&T area with HSPA+ in the PCS band you're SOL.
...
The FCC approval is quite clear that the phone was designed and approved for WCDMA/HSPA+ in the 850, 1700, and 1900 bands. Unless T-Mobile has weirdly disabled one - and there's no good reason they would - it should work well on all three of those ban...

MirrorLink

Does anyone have any information on how the MirrorLink on this phone works? I'm looking into buying this phone with a Sony XAV 601BT (in-car MirrorLink system). I'd like to get some information how that connection actually happens. I understand that I will have to connect it to a MHL cable, but I don't know anything beyond that.

How does it interface? Is it controlled by software on the phone? Is there something that needs to be downloaded into the phone? Is it all controlled remotely through the in-dash unit? Any information that anyone has on MirrorLink specifically with the Galaxy S3 is appreciated.

Thanks.

This phone has a Barometer ?

Wow. I bet if you search through the menu, you'll find a kitchen sink too.

What the hell does a phone need to use a barometer for? Is my phone going to predict the incoming weather patterns or something ?
It measures altitude, which makes location readings more accurate.

If you have a handful of inputs from GPS and Wi-Fi networks, each GPS satellite and Wi-Fi access point is one distance reading, in a three-dimensional space. You need at least three...
