So excited! Bought a white 16gb GS3 yesterday off a guy on Craigslist...turns out I've worked with him on his account through VZW at Costco lol, small world! Anyway, I'm psyched to have this phone. I'm a little worried about the battery life though, but I think it's just because it's the newness of the phone and getting everything set up the way I want it. Hopefully I'll be able to get it settled in a few days.
Question: I use Handcent and disabled the stock messaging app thinking that Handcent would then show up on the lock screen shortcut, and it's not there. How can I get it there? Also, I need to root and get hotspot access so any links to the best tutorial would be greatly appreciated
Any suggestions on apps or settings I should take into consideration? Is keeping NFC enabled when I'm not using it going to affect battery life like having wifi/gps/bluetooth on when not in use?
