My wife just surprised me with a sgs3, for my bday. Anyways just wanted to introduce myself because you will see me posting. I will have a lot of questions, after i read of course. I came from the Desire HD and Sensation so i'm familiar with android and rooting but now i'm dealing with a beast and this is my first samsung phone. Anyways, i'm glad to be apart of a new community.

Lets give this idea a try, make sure to read this post

You know what, let's go with this idea.

As long as you guys can keep this friendly, lets make this the SGS3, hello and chat thread.

A few ground rules:

1) I am relying on everyone to report and ignore any trollish posts rather than respond to them

2) If this goes downhill, I will not hesitate to close it

That said, enjoy :good:

Yes, read read read and then read some more. search before posting and try not to ask stupid questions or ask for things to be spoon fed to you and you'll be ok :)

Lol you guys are a much tougher crowd than the HTC guys. This is my 3rd android phone and have been a member of xda since last november. I know the routine but goodlooking out.

Yes, I discovered that too when I switched from HTC to Samsung.. But then again I think more idots use samsung devices so patience runs thin with more senior guys. hahhaha

if you are coming from HTC, you will catch up fast. SAmsung phones are usually "development friendly". Very easy to tinker with their phones (VZN Locked bootloader exempt)

This kinda thread actually isn't a bad idea, well what I mean is to have ONE thread to introduce ourselves in, we all know each others user names but maybe we would have a better community if we said a bit about ourselves and our first names or something.
Just a thought.

I hope other people get involved or else I've just made a right tit of myself :D

Nice, I've actually been thinking of getting into day trading. My friend started doing it when he got laid off and now he just trades stocks in his basement all day.. He makes very good money and has no boss to answer to. But he does have a high risk of losing everything he has if something he had his $ in crashed

Trading stocks is very risky business. Learn everything you can about stocks trading and then unlearn. Ironically, I make money only by not knowing too much about stock ;)
Anyway, good luck to you and your friend.

Other than a Forum I can not think of any other Online communication tool that would not send alarm bells running where a 59 year old communicates with a 16 year old!!!
That's the essence of a forum, we are all equal and no one judges anyone. We all share the same desire and that is our tech.

For those that do not know me....
It's Beards, your Senior Consultant Surgeon.
Happily married for over 37yrs with grown kids (yippee) and a Granddaughter who is my shadow.
I do a lot for charity (as in my signature) and am always willing to both help and learn.

At 59 nearing 60 rapidly..... please be gentle. A few of my brain cells have become lonely. :)
