comment Voice commands for contacts with unusual names
Hmm, next annoying thing: I have given a unique name as the phonetic name - no one else has that name anywhere in their records, and S Voice recognises the name.. but brings up the four contacts in my address book with her surname, so I still have to choose.

comment Galaxy Gear not locking Note 3
OK, this is what I have found so far. It isn't locking exactly i.e. when the watch is out of range, it doesn't automatically lock the phone - if the screen was active, it stays active until it times out normally. But when I try to open the device, I need to use the secure method to open the device. And when I bring the watch back into range, I can just swipe to open it. Is my expectation off here? I thought it would lock the device when I go out of range.

Well, there is another way that helps too. Set a phonetic name: androidpolice.com/2013/06/10/… I have spent the last two hours trying to create a phonetic name that reproduces the correct pronunciation and am about to throw my brand new phone through the window. But at least I have options.. Set a phonetic nick name or contort my vooooowells unteeel aye canne pro-nunse-ee-yate her name.

comment Voice commands for contacts with unusual names
Well, @Izzy thanks - that worked! I installed Auto Speak Clipboard 2, heard the tortured way it pronounces my partner's name, replicated that and experienced the exquisite dichotomy of having something finally work while being extremely embarrassed at having spoken a beautiful name as though my mouth were full of banana peels. If you put this as a separate answer, I will gladly accept it.

comment Is S Voice slow?
I have found it takes a long long time.. I believe that it is sending the audio to a converter first, which may take time. However, even with 4G and Wifi it's still slow.

comment Change the name of the Wi-Fi hotspot
Oh, now I see! I tap on "Portable Wifi Hotspot" and I then see the screen that allows me to configure it! I was confused because the on/off switch on that line looked like it was the only control for that line, instead of also being able to tap on it and enter another screen. Thank you very much!

comment Change the name of the Wi-Fi hotspot
I don't seem to see a place to rename like you do. Here is what I see under tethering and portable hotspot: imgur.com/stE9HIM. Under More Networks: imgur.com/PSQWMbL. And finally under connections: imgur.com/UmlIDyr

comment Can I Bluetooth tether my Android to iPhone?
How about this - I am only using the data connection on my iPhone until my new account activates on the Dell Streak (with Optus directly). Is it easier to set up the Dell Streak (as a WiFi hot-spot?) so that the iPhone can use its data plan?

This sounds like something I need to root my device for right?
