1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Love the phone so far but there is some stuff bugging me. I have been on the phone with Samsung and they told me there is nothing they can do.

    1-When plugged in to the Headset Jack (as in using your mp3 input in your car) and using the Bluetooth and you get a
    phone call you have to unplug from the Headset jack to answer the call. Never had that problem with the Droid X

    2-No landscape mode on the home screens. I have since found an app for it for 2.99

    When I first got the phone and I used Airview with the S-pen on my emails it would read it back to me with voice. I don't know what I did but that stopped working. Samsung said that never worked but I swear it did.

    If anybody knows a fix or work around please post.

    I have never known any Android phone to change homescreen orientation without a 3rd party launcher or app, except ones with pullout keyboards.

    I can't help with the other two issues.

    I found the s-pen reading emails. It only works with the email app, not gmail.

    I absolutely love 99% OF the phone. My biggest issue is Signal reception. It is not 1/2 as good w/signal as the droid x it replaced. My other Complaint is w/verizon and all the bloatware they have installed on the phone. The reception is a big issue W/0 an excuse. Absolutely Amazing phone in every other way.

    The headset/buetooth issue bugs me also

    Try rotation locker for the orientation issue. Simple and works, also free.

    Interesting because I use hook my phone to my cars audio to listen to music all the time and it does a good job going to bt to handle calls and once done goes back to music. I do have the AT&T variant but should be the same. As far as orientation rotation locker or I suggest (for better experience) use apex or nova launcher and in settings switch it to landscape mode.
