wow, last post was still 2011.
anyways, just to give an update on gmate.
i am currently using gmate+ on my note 10.1
gmate+ is the newer one from the standard gmate.
true, there are still snags like the contacts, but it serves my purpose well, not to hold another phone just to receive incoming calls / sms.
so far so good, as i just got it this morning.
