alarm tone? Galaxi Slll Mini GSM unlocked

I successfully set the tone for the alarm clock on my first alarm time I created. Smile But when I try to change the tone on any other alarm times I add I only get the default tone Sad (which wouldn't wake up a baby....LOL)

How do I get to the setting to reset or choose a new tone for the alarm clock time I want to customize?

Thanks in advance.. Very Happy

help fixing s3 sound issue

Hi, I got a galaxy S3 one year before but I am not playing a lot with it now--- mainly using for calling and musics. It suddenly froze, touch screen won’t work yesterday. I had to remove my mpj extended battery purchased several months ago, make some rest and then turned on. It was on but began producing sounds like beep. I turned off the phone and left it aside. Tried to turn on again today but same weird sound. What should I do??? Many thanks!

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 LTE/4G N9005 International

Does any one know what are the differences between these models?

Are these codes only carrier specific bloatware or are the hardware/electronics/radios different?

If I root the phone, are they all the same?

my first battery for note but it was defective

My Note 3 battery was totally dead bcz I dropped it into water, by accident. So I did some research and compare, ordered a replacement from mpj. Received it a week later but this battery, which suppose to be an extended one, is not an improvement---not lasting even one full day. Upon hearing about my experience, they sent me a new battery to exchange for the first one. Waited another week, and thankfully the new one works wonderfully and holds a charge as it should.

why galaxy nexus udate to 4.2 battery drain horrible

I own a Galaxy Nexus worked really great - great battery life especially when i installed my 5000 extended battery from mpj, easily last a day and night even played a lots of data...until the update. I was getting so frustrated with it, about 30% more of the battery had drained while it was supposedly asleep. It ended up being on the charger more than it was in my hands.After dealing with the battery life, i did factory reset and reverted back to the original system. It is as if I have my fresh out of the box.

Want to know why update causing battery drain????

abt i9200 mega 6.3 battery life

I have a Galaxy i9200 and it do have terrible battery lives! My battery seems to last about 12 hours...that's it!!
I have to charge mine every night, i'm up at 6am, leave the house at 7am to start work at 8am and I usually put it on charge again in the car for the hour drive to work, or I know the juice will probably run out before I finish work at 6pm!.

I then have to charge again it on the drive home, or it won't last the evening.
I hardly use my phone with only one stock battery whilst i'm at work,so i also use an extended battery bought from MPJ, I also shut down apps when not using them and don't let my facebook or email update automatically, and now the battery life leaves to be desired!.

pre-order Note III high capacity battery

Not many decent companies achieve the autonomy in the smartphone category that last the use between charges. In this sense, the newest flagship of Samsung has a more than worthy behavior, with about 18 hours of continuous use with activated data connections. Those 18 hours well managed can give rise to a few days of use. But if you see that not enough for you and perhaps interested to an accessory battery so I’ll detail a supplementary device which is manufactured by MPJ and will be released at Oct. 15th.

We refer to one of those additions that are integrated into the back of the device and, although significantly alters the overall dimensions of the Samsung Note III. And is that compared to stock battery of Samsung Note 3, the proposa...
