ok, i have a TecTiles at my home desk, when i tap on it, it automatically turn on or off Block mode (when i driving, i dont want people calling me).

i have another TecTiles at my car dash, when i tap it, it automatically turn on brightness 100% (when you driving, sometime it hard to see the screen) and automatically launch google voice with a pre-fill-in phone number of the person you texts the most.
so, when i tap it, it automatically launch of these steps, so i just press my micro/hotkey onscreen keyboard and it' automatically fill in "i be there in 5 minutes" and press return. and it' sent!

Most people don't use their smartphone's to it's fullest extent, that's why wireless carriers report that avg users only use a measly 2gb's/mo.

All most people do is txt & facebook.

you can get TecTiles (comes with 5 nfc programable sticker/tag) for 11.44$ at amazon or go att store to buy it at 15$. if you not going to upgrade to GS4, this old version works fine.
did you know.. it works on Galaxy NoteII, you can try it on your other galaxy phone not sure if it works or not.
go to setting -> accessibility -> text to speech output -> Driving mode. now when you have incoming call, it will speak out the phone number like "incoming call from 510 128 1688" or speak out the alarm "the alarm is 9 0 5 PM"

Yes! I do intend on getting the S4! With T-Mobile!
I borrowed a MyTouch 4G from a friend to test drive T-Mobile's network here in Connecticut, good signal.

I already have cases on the way from Amazon, and a 64GB memory card.

The Galaxy series phones have sooooo many features I havent figured out how to use all of them on my Note 2. Those tectiles are awesome and extremely convenient the possibilities are endless you can set them to do anything!

Most of those reasons would depend on exactly what you need them for. I use them for when I want to set alarms, turn off features I am not using when I go to specific locations for example at work I cant have any type of sound so I set it on silent and to auto text individuals with pre formatted text messages, after work I set it for school features I onl...
