    I agree with you guys! Had my S3 since last Sept 2012 and still love it like I did when I first got it! In fact, I love it more as I discover new features and use features I knew about but hadn't used yet. This Forum is a good resource for tips and ideas on how to get the most out of it.

    Even though the S4 came out shortly after I got my S3 it's still a great phone. Thanks for the tips. I actually was an iOS guy before I got my S3 and I'm in love.

    I went from a Droid Bionic to the S3 this week and I absolutely love this phone! The only difference that I see with this phone is the 4.2 OS, the screen is a wee bit bigger on the S4, and the phone was $100 cheaper than the S4. The dimensions on both Samsung phones are the same to me. This is more like my Tab 2 7" tablet. One thing I love about Samsung products is how clear the screens are for me.

    I bought the certified HDMI out by samsung but my NFL Mobile app, as well as some others deactivate when I plug it in. "error, HDMI out is connected" ... anyone know how to resolve this issue?

    Thanks,

    Looks like nobody has replied to this.

    From what I've read, some apps, NFL Mobile app being one, are only licensed for displaying on a mobile device. They're specifically coded to NOT output video from the mobile device for viewing on other devices, like a TV.

    It should work just fine if you're using an MHL to HDMI adapter, but I believe that's your only option.

    Sadly it doesn't. makaiguy is correct. NFL Mobile will not output video from a mobile device for viewing on a TV or monitor (at least not with stock software). It blocks any passage of video out of the device. When screen mirroring first came to Chromecast, you could get the video on a TV that way, but it was pretty quickly blocked as well.

    The reason for this is that the app (and Verizon for much of the video) only has the rights to allow the video to be shown on mobile devices. Other outlets that have the rights to show the content on non-mobile devices - OTA networks and cable/satellite channels and companies - would be royally ticked off if the app could be easily used to circumvent what they've paid a huge amount of money to be able to show.
