    how do i change the default apps for files.

    also how do i change the default background of the app/widget menu that i get after clicking the 3x2 square boxes on the top right.


    is there something called themes?

    As far as the first, go to system settings, apps, then choose the app you want to change FROM. scroll down and hit clear defaults. Next time you open up a file from where ever, it should ask which to use.

    Considering the Apps and Account setup have never worked on my phone im thinking of finally taking it into ATT, who knows they may upgrade me to a S2 Skyrocket, which I would be fine with anyway.

    Faster internals, bigger screen, you could probably say they're worth the diff.

    worth the price difference? not really.

    The S2 feels/ looks very identical. but build quality is not very reassuring. but thats samsung. lol.

    Also, the camera on the S2 isnt great at all. my cousin has got the s2 after the n79 and the n79 still takes much much better pics than the s2.

    Love my Skyrocket. Fast, reliable, but best of all - it's a really good phone. Clear calls, no drops.

    Youre PHONE yes. You're DEVICE no. In other words, those radios you got really cant provide some half decent call quality. I finally went and used one, omg blah I dont know how you can stand using that thing. No offense man.

    Fortunately Radio updates do surface, that might make it a good phone in time.

    Personally, I'm proud to have all our phones on JB now :cool:

    Call quality is good enough for me, not making a ton of calls anyway, and don't worry, none taken. Looking forward to multiple rumored Nexus phones coming out at the end of the month, though!

    Not worth it if it is a t-mobile phone. I got a prepaid version of sgs ii from wally world brand new in box for 300. Dropped my sim in and rolled that shit up.

    If on a diff network, the difference is more dramatic. The tmo version is more like the sgs iii, the two main differences being screen res and dual core vs quad core.

    Cool. Heads up...have you heard of the MHL? Its the dongle to get HDMI from usb. Anyway, if you get one, make absolutely sure it works w/ sgs iii, as they changed the thing. The one that works with sgs ii will not work with sgs iii.

    The S2 actually has a very good camera, just gotta learn how to use it.

    Here's some I took of a broken USB 2.0 connector in a hdd enclosure.
