Though you need to get onto mushroomtube.
I should have mentioned my iPhone 5 is jail broken. I can have any song I want as my ring tone. This argument will always be the same as Holden vs Ford, Playstation vs Xbox etc
It comes down to personal preference and which phone suits the individual user.
glad you like it jecs loving my note 3 i pick up my old iphone and i just laugh at it and wonder how i ever thought it was good
i want to get my paws onto one of these
currently have an s3, but my plan runs out in september
Glad you're happy mate, I'm also a fellow S5 lover. Reason of choice was simple for me; I want storage, fast removable storage. With the S5 you can have 128Gb (I'm still on 64Gb cause I'm a tight-arse), so your phone becomes a convenient, portable, USB 3 mass storage device. Seems like every other phone forgot about expandable storage.
Totally water resistant, that's under 2 inches. Touch input won't work til it's dry though.
First thing I did was root it and put Omega's flavour of ROM (v4.4.2), so I could get rid of the bloatware and keep the good stuff. That's not everyone's cup of tea though.
App recommendations I'd have are around automation in conjunction with a HTPC but are for someone fairly technically competent.
Gmote: Make your phone a wireless remote control with access to your media lists.
Sickstache: Using your HTPC as a web server accessing an indexing service you can fully automate your media life.
Couchpotato: As above but automates your 'other' media life.
SABnzbd: Does the heavy lifting.
There's a Vuze plugin available to access the client from a web page.
I'd suggest an RDP app if you have a few devices and don't like getting off the couch when Star Trek's on. Teamviewer is pretty good and secure for external access, it's free too.
Other than that, I use aCar for cost/km tracking.
one problem i am having is apparently people with iphones are sending me msgs and im not receiving them on my galaxy.
i thought by switching off imessage on my phone it would automatically redirect it to new phone. but it hasnt.
anyone know the fix?
Apparently its a big thing, heaps of Google hits on the problem,
How To Make Sure You Can Still Get Texts If You Ditch Your IPhone | Business Insider
just tell them to send sms - lordy people are dense.
counter with I sent you a hangouts msg and you didn't get it.
dense? how in any way was i meant to know id have this problem?
i had already switched all the options in my messages on iphone OFF.
it wasnt until hama emailed me today and told me he sent me a pic last night which i never received.
it doesnt bounce back on his end, i dont recieved **** so both parties are unaware.
Your boss sounds awesome, wish mine was like that!!
Common problem. You can de-register for iMessage by logging into your Apple account online. Turning it off on your iPhone SHOULD work but if you turned it off straight away it might not have registered (de-registered).
Have to turn all the imessage stuff off and unlink it from your email accounts etc
What If I No Longer Have My iPhone?
If you decided to switch from an iPhone to some other brand of phone and you are not receiving text messages from iPhone users, it is likely you didn’t sign out of iMessage before you made the switch. In this situation, the messages from iPhone users are still being sent as iMessages, and you can only receive iMessages on an Apple device.
To resolve the issue, go to https://appleid.apple.com and change your Apple ID password as described above. You should then start receiving SMS text messages from iPhone users on your new phone.
One of the reasons I don't like Apple products.
Even when you don't use them any more they still #### with you.
Like iTunes for instance. I have never had a program that is so impossible to uninstall from Windows. But that is a whole new topic.
not you mate don't get all defensive - the inoobs who think you'll imessage forever - it's kind of like people still sending you an ICQ message and expecting you to answer - uh oh, no ICQ anymores!
To be honest the imessage thing is actually the only issue I have had with any of my Iphones.
That and big screen envy!
My friends had a Apple account that was using her ex's email account, little did she know that all her messages to and from her new boyfriend who uses an iPhone (some quiet raunchy apparently) were all popping up on her ex's iPad.
WTF iMessages. Nice way for Apple to intercept all her messages.
Dunno if you've used an iPhone with iMessage enabled before, but by default the phone will send iMessages in place of SMS, it isn't a user choice. To send SMS instead is a user decision.
The issue is on Apple's part, not on the people who may not even be aware of the issue.
I see this so often at work it's unreal. This is exactly why people should have never shared Apple ID's in the first place. It's just like sharing a computer, or almost any technology, it will always cause a problem haha.
hehe, yeah just a couple I manage a national fleet of the things.
yes inoobs rarely think when they hit send. It should be a bit clearer much like how in Hangouts you can see very easily that you are sending a Hangouts message not an SMS.
It is pretty clear since the colour of the message bubbles changes, but not clear enough for some people who want to pay as little attention as possible :rofl2:
Oh this is still amazing hahaha..
