    And confirms, you need a different router for wifi access.

    My One X+ arrives next week. Hopefully Jelly Bean will roll out for my S2 within the week to give me something to tinker with.

    firmware update/reset to defaults, then start from there. seen a lot of people mess with settings like MTU and beacon intervals without knowing it, and screwed themselves over later.

    Get another Android phone... ZTE Warp... it's a nice phone for being 100 off contract.... this was the best one kroger wireless had that was under 150. Was gonna get the EVO but no local places had it and people were complaining about crappy battery time on those.... so I got the ZTE one.

    I'm am looking at a Asus Transformer Infinity. Does anyone own one and how do you like it? Does it have any serious glitches. Also, I need an app that allows you to record while simultaneously taking notes. Does anyone know of such an app? I use Notability on my current iPad 3 and want something similar. I can return my iPad 3 64 gb and save 140 dollars by buying a Infinity but I need a note taking app that records while typing. In addition, I need a decent case recommendation. So help a brother out.

    FYI, I did try a Infinity out at Best Buy and it seems lighter, slightly bigger and thinner than my Ipad but the reviews I have read seem to indicate there are some quality control issues.

    Again, I need a bit of advice here. I do have an Android Phone that integrates so well with my iPad you would not know it is not an iPhone but, I hate buying apps twice. My kids have Iconia Tabs with Tegra 2 CPUs, and they are very nice tablet and are better than an iPad and equal to a iPad 2 performance wise but nowhere near my iPad 3.

    Its too late for that. Looking back through my files, I determined I have 5.0.2.7 non touch.

    I ordered a MHL adapter. Hopefully it will work without problems.

    I am writing this to you on a TF101 and I can honestly say that it pisses all over the iPad2, iPad3 not so much because at times it feels a little slow. The TF201 most likely improves on that. There is a guy on here selling one so you may be able to get a deal on it.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace GT (fairly crap)..... Android 2.3.3 and a Galaxy Tab 10.1 16GB with 4.1.1 (I think), so I am in now, might need some advice on apps later once I get my sh*t sorted!

    I started a while ago here on a galaxy nexus, sold that bad boy for an SGS3 which I proceeded to kill when drunk, so now a note 2!

    If any of you have them I've got loads of tips about how I made mine fast as hell and cut the bloatware.

    Step one, go into S Voice settings and uncheck the option to have it launch with a double tap of the home button, makes the home button far more responsive.

    I uninstalled Svoice completely as I never used it because google now is win on a stick, I also made an icon for google's voice seach which effectively instantly lauches google now into coice search without having to hold the capacitive button down.

    In settings > Developer options I force GPU rendering, and change window animation scale, transition animation scale and animator animation scale all to 'animation off' and you would be surprised already the difference in your phones resonsiveness.

    As a personal thing I don't like touchwiz, so I use Nova launcher which effectively replicates the stock andorid (nexus) style experience but with a host of great customisation options, including icon packs, adding more or less icon rows.. tuning animation speed too.

    If I can get a vid of it I will because the phone is now quite ridiculously fast.

    hope it helps! more where this came from but it should get you well on your way

    Is it a good idea to use an anti-virus? Avast has an android version. Or is it useless? What happens when your device gets infected?
