    I got a blue SIII today, and comparing it to the white version, I prefer the blue. I think it suits it more, and makes it a little less iPhone-ish.

    I think everyone had their own preference.. I love my white:) especially how the capacitive touch keys glow. The blue doesn't have that same effect.

    God damn it!

    My bluetooth handsfree connection in my car with my Galaxy S3 "works"... if you count only being able to hear the person as working!!! They can't hear me during calls!

    A mate called me with a semi-emergency (from a private number) and I answered... he couldn't hear me at all! Ended up pulling over on the side of the road, fiddling with 10 different settings - test calling my Dad... nothing. Ended up googling (on the side of the road) the problem - and heaps of people have it...

    So pissed. Car is a 2011 Toyota Corolla BTW... Will be calling the dealership tomorrow and see what can be done/where the problem lies. :thumbdn: :mad:

    Not the phones fault. Cars don't get BT updates as often as handsets.

    I think he likes the muddy back-light bleeding on the buttons, in the white version of this phone.

    Seems like a Toyota problem. Thanks for raising it though, I'll make sure to take my helmet in with my BT kit and call someone before I buy one.

    It does take awhile, but it's a very enjoyable ride :)

    This guy is disqualified from appearing on Today Tonight / ACA. He did not blame everyone else for his exploding phone, his poor financial situation, his alcohol dependency, his unwillingness to find employment etc. etc.

    My S Planner is not syncing to Google! I have all the Google applied entries on my phone but not the other way around, anyone had this/fixed this?

    EDIT: OK, I think I fixed this by settings it to Google and not 'My Calendar' but I can't change the colours of the events, it has to be grey! Oh well.
