There have been several reports of the S3 experiencing heat problems. Many users have reported problems with their Galaxy S3 overheating and sometimes even freezing or crashing as a result. The S3 is very thin with a big screen, a big battery, and a powerful set of internal components, so the more you use it, the hotter it will get. This ...

Try clearing the Cache and Data of Google Play Services and Google Play Store and Restart your phone. I hope it works.

As the OP didn't report back, it seems safe to assume that the hints given in my comments to the question solved the issue: One of the general solutions to issues with the Google Play Store app: From your homescreen, use the menu key/button, and go to Settings › Apps On the resulting screen, make sure to select the "All" tab Scroll to the Google Play ...

Very easy to solve this. Go to the Samsung explorer "My Files" find the MP3 with the wrong artwork. Long press, select rename, rename the file (I just added "1" at the end). Your MP3 file will now play without the unwanted picture. You can then remove the "1" after the file name.

You can root without a computer as long as you already have a recovery mode that lets you install from a zip. I have just rooted an S3 i9300, the stock international unlocked model, this way. Its specifications are Model GT-I9300 Android 4.3 Kernel 3.0.31-2168382 Thu Nov 28 21:02.26 KST 2013 I had previously installed ClockWorkMod Recovery (the touch ...

Stop running unnecessary applications in the background. For example: Bluetooth should be off when not in use and it can be turned on per usage like for example get a call then turn it on or make sure if turned on always plugged in to a charger. Make sure you get titanium back up; you don't need pro. Go inside play store and download it. Run it and then ...

have you tried backing up the files you would like to keep from the device onto the SD card, and reflashing a fresh system and GApps .zip entirely? this may solve your issue, but i am unfamiliar with the common operation of your specific device, this is sort of a blanket, last resort panacea type solution. hope this helps :] Note that this requires a decent ...

I solved the problem by doing this: Root the phone Install the posed Framework and Wanam Kit. Enable the Wanam Kit module after installing it. Open Wanam Kit and go to the "Sounds" options, then go to the bottom and check "disable low battery sound" Reboot

It isn't supported by default in the stock Contacts provider. However, you can use a third party contact management application that allows thumbnail view. One good option would be Contacts+.

MightyText: http://www.mightytext.net and PushBullet: https://www.pushbullet.com/ are third-party apps that provide this functionality.

Yes you can, but I would advise you not to install CyanogenMod, because some parts of your device may not work (WiFi, Bluetooth, camera flash).

I can't think of any reason why you couldn't try it, because it should either work and install CyanogenMod or it won't manage to install anything. It doesn't always work with my SPH-L710 S3 despite my being able to flash with Odin just fine. Just do not install the wrong firmware on your own. There are over ten different revisions of the S3, and going ...

After my Galaxy Note 3 got all messed up by Lollipop update, I rooted by phone and installed DisableService app from Play Store. Using DisableService, you can disable AT&T Software update service. Good luck.

I haven't tried this, but in your APN settings there's a setting called "fota," which stands for "firmware over the air." Removing that APN type and rebooting your device could stop those updates.

After a long time of researching I found this useful link: http://www.gridshore.nl/2013/09/30/setting-up-keys-to-sign-emails-in-samsungs-android-email-app/ It seems to be the case that it is not trivial to make android to find the keys.

According to this site, you can capture your phone's screen at high frame rates into a high-quality MPEG4 video. The application is not free unfortunately, but there is a demo version for free that I reccomend you to try. Hope this helps.

You have to go to download mode by pressing power button, home button and volume down key at the same time. When screen shows download mode, press up volume key and enter in this mode. Now start odin and press PDA key and select TWRP.zip (which should be downloaded already from the net) and now start to flash it. After pass message your phone will be ...

You have no option to do so in the stock data usage controls. You will be better off installing a third party app, such as onavo count.

I had a similar problem a few weeks ago (same phone, same OS). I turned off the phone and took the battery out for about 1-minute. Then put the battery back in and restarted the phone. Not sure if it will work for you, but I figured I'd try to help.

I did not understand the phone you have the contacts on... so I will try a general option answer: go to contacts and use the available options: e.g. Import/Export or "batch operation" followed by "select all" and "share". other options are available just think out of the closet.

There should be a photos app which comes with google+ app. This app contains your uploaded photos.

You already indicated the possible use of an app. And indeed, next to the so-called "vault apps", there are several options for Encryption of Files and Folders which work transparently on the file system. For some, you still will need to use "specific folders" which you encrypt, though – while most of the others fall into the category of requiring root ...

Unfortunately logcat does not survive a hard reboot because the logs are stored in circular buffers in memory, and are never actually written to storage. Your solution to leave a terminal session running may work, but as you said may grow the file uncontrollably, and during a reboot it may corrupt the output file. I would suggest adding the -r and -n ...

As I wrote in my comment on the question, I rather think it's a defect in the controller – which is nothing you can fix yourself. Still, you might wish to at least check things. So I'll try to explain: Preparation To do all that manually, some pre-conditions must be met. You will need: a terminal app. Terminal Emulator for Android would be a good choice: ...

Originally I had 3 pages of symbols, including the degree symbol. There was an "update" and it's gone. I use it a lot and miss it. I just downloaded the GO keyboard and it has a degree symbol °. Yay!

Would not recommend it. My i9300 had a lot of trouble running 5.0.2 (CM12) smoothly. Furthermore, batterylife decreased severely up to the point that the phone even discharged noticeably when actively used whilst charging. I ended up restoring a backup to 4.4 after two days of use.

FOUND A FIX!!!!! Hi Everyone, I just experienced the same thing: my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was dropped and the LCD stopped working. However, the phone would turn on. I could not receive calls or call out. My USB Debugging was turned off. This is how I managed to retrieve my TEXTS, other Rooted info and normal files. I am not sure if the front end of this fix ...

No it can't. In this case its safer to use a backup app like Titanium Backup which can backup folder structure or full system and downloaded apps data + apk. it'll also keeps your Settings, Home & Lock screen wallpapers, app widgets, bluetooth pairings, bookmarks, call logs, WiFi Access points and every other data which will be backed up with Google or ...

I had the same problem of not having my device appear on my Mac running OSX Yosemite. The only difference is that I am using a Galaxy Note 3. What made it work for me was to change the USB port. I think it may have to do with the COM port not automatically selecting or something similar.

The Galaxy Tab S 10.6 seems to use MTP as USB connection mode. Since Mac OS X doesn't support MTP, your Mac can't see your device. I suppose that your Note has Micro SD card installed, and your Tab doesn't. If your Tab has a Micro SD card, it might be able to connect with your Mac. For your question, I suggest using Airdroid (the first version) or anything ...

To access files from your phone on your computer, you need to have it hosted as a media device. Often these are found in your settings (in my case, when I plug the USB cable my phone asks me whether to charge phone only, or host as media device.) These are most likely found in your settings if it does not ask. Once you get that far, you need the drivers for ...

You're not limited to using the Gallery app to view your images. I've loaded a file explorer app called ES File Explorer File Manager that allows me to traverse not only the local content of my phone, but, also, any network drives I may have access to. When selecting an image file, you are presented with a list of programs that are registered to open the ...
