The in-line-mic only works for compatible Apple products. Apple always has something different than the standard and most Android devices use the opposite. I would like to see an adapter, but it would probably use an Apple patent. I think you're out of luck, but I'll update this if I find anything in the future. Next headphone pair you buy, I recommend you ...

1) Use Air Droid Copy to comp, copy to phone [too long] 2) Switch on dropbox lan sync and transfer the photos by installing dropbox on your new phone too. Both the methods will be a bit slow, but at least you can start the process and let things be taken care of. [EDIT] OP did not want cloud solutions, you can try out Dukto No intermediate required :) ...

You can download matching firmware from SamMobile.com and flash it through odin. If you search XDA-developers you can find instructions on how you can flash an ODIN firmware. Some initial details can also be found in our odin tag-wiki.

As others said, if you remove the crapware, well, that proves the rooting. Anyway, you can try towelroot in order to gain temporary root permissions. Open the app and tap three times on welcome to towelroot; A text box should appear: substitute 1 to the last 0; Click on make it ra1n. This should provide you with a temporary root.

Possible? Yes. Dangerous? Extremely. Depending on how similar the model is, you could have it work fine, not work fine, brick, or, in extreme cases, perma-brick. If you're willing to take the chance, that's fine, but understand that you could do serious damage to your device if you do.

I would do something else. Chances are high your firmware has an issue. Go to http://samsung-updates.com/, select your device and search for your provider. Download the full firmware (about 1.6 gb) unzip(only once). Get yourself Odin(its for windows only). Its on xda everywhere. A wipe data and wipe cache from recovery mode would be helpful here. Hold on ...

Your S4 firmware is corrupt some way. You should head to XDA forums and see tutorial for S4 rooting. Once you have read everything carefully and done all the steps correctly, you should install a custom rom for S4, since this would remove the random booting, if you haven't damaged the battery with water or anything. NOTE! Rooting is very risky if you don't ...

Pretty much any Samsung is going to be susceptible to "SDS" (Sudden death syndrome) Because Samsung is just "high quality stuffs". For a point of reference, I am a smartphone data recovery/Mod/Repair technician, and I see SDS and Memory errors almost exclusively in samsung devices. The only exceptions were Damaged by Water.

I discovered that you have to touch the bit that actually says default keyboard not the greyed out button below. So Settings, language and input. Tap the header default and then slide the use onscreen keyboard button to turn the keyboard back on.

You can choose a password that exists of numbers only. I've done that with Jellybean, and was annoyed when starting up the phone, and not having the number pad. It worked with Jelly Bean, and I hope it works with KitKat as well. Only thing I would prefer is to have a password for startup, complex with letters and numbers, and a PIN for unlocking the phone. ...

Android updates have nothing to do with what network the phone is currently on, or what SIM card is inserted. The updates come from whoever you got your phone from. If you bought your phone from a carrier, they almost certainly customized the OS to include their special apps (a.k.a. bloatware), and sometimes to limit features like Wi-Fi hotspot. For that ...

This is Samsung's "Quick Glance" feature, which triggers when a hand is waved over your sleeping phone. You can turn it off in Settings -> My Device -> Motions and Gestures -> Air Gesture -> Quick Glance.

Well, that's weird first of all make sure that the other bluetooth devices you are searching using the S2 are visible, otherwise its not going to detect the bluetooth device. And if you are sure that the bluetooth devices you are trying to connect is visible try clearing the cache and the data stored by the bluetooth app, you can do that by going to ...

Obviously you need an internet connection to create or log into your account. As you don't have a mobile internet connection yet, the phone needs to connect to a Wi-Fi network first. That's why it's showing you the Wi-Fi settings right away.

Found this on YouTube: Go to Settings -> Security -> Phone Administrators, then un-check this app and proceed to uninstall it by the usual means.

Yes, those apps are stock apps in the German-localized ROMs for the Galaxy S3 (the i9300 version). Likely they were there in the original ROM but you uninstalled them and later forgot about it. It's fine to just uninstall them. The seventh and eight digits of the IMEI don't have any meaning in current phones. Before 2004, they indicated the country where ...

You can flash rom using Odin and you can download the stock rom zip from Samsung firmware or you can download any custom rom zip(if rooted) and flash it using Odin.
