Google Voice now supports Honeycomb tablets
Saturday 03rd of September 2011
Google Voice has been updated several times this year, each one more disappointing than the last for the people who have been waiting for the ability to use it on their Honeycomb devices. Google has finally made Voice compatible with Honeycomb tablets, so no need to obsessively check changelogs every time you check the Android Market.That’s what I was doing earlier this morning as I went to update several apps and noticed “Added tablet support” among the changes of the Voice app. Naturally, I ran for my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to give things a go and was pleased with the results. Messages are stretched across the screen, which allows reading practically the entire text without having to open it. The top bar has links to Compose, Refresh, Search, and browse Labels.The app functions otherwise as expected. Users can send and receive SMS messages through their Voice account as long as they have a Wi-Fi connection. They can also monitor their calling credit balance and change their notification settings. There’s also a 3×3 widget for the Inbox; and because it
Galaxy Nexux 7 or Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.0?
Monday 16th of July 2012
Hi, I have 2 days left on my return period at Best Buy for my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.0 and although I really like my tablet, should I return it and buy the Google Nexus 7 10 inch? I want to hear from you and what you think. Keep it? Refund? Go for Jelly Bean? Wait another 6 months until Christmas and buy the Microsoft Surface?I'm an early adopter by buying the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.0, and I'm not experiencing buyer's remorse because it performs as intended for my school and work plans. I tried the Acer Transformer tablet and it was not as good.I downloaded a few Android apps so I'm reading my text files and acrobat pdf files perfectly - and with 9 to 10 hours of battery time. Pretty good.I just won't know if the Microsoft Surface will have 25 hours of battery time and a keyboard included, etc...My reasons for keeping the Samsung so far...1. No Google spying. The Nexus 7 wants location tracking, web history, search behavior, etc., as a tradeoff for it's use.2. MicroSD slot. The Nexus doesn't have it.3. Standby mode. The Acer doesn't have it.My feeling is that as long as I can get 4
Text too small
Sunday 07th of April 2013
I have just purchased the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (Wi-Fi) and previously owned the Samsung Galaxy Tab SCH-I800 (Verizon) which would only update to Firmware Version 2.3.5What I have noticed is that on the Tab 2, the homepage will position 6 shortcut icons across the tablet where the old Tablet will only position 5. No problem there but when I go to browse websites and go to Facebook, the text is so much smaller than on the old tablet. I've gone to 'display' and 'text size' on the tab 2 and changed the text size to 'huge' but it doesn't really seem to make too much difference.Is there any other setting that I could be missing. I love the text size on the old tablet compared to the Tab 2....I certainly didn't need to have the text any smaller than it was!!!I'd appreciate any help that you can offer. Thanks so much!!

app on store demo not on tablet, can't find to buy
Saturday 28th of December 2013
Just bought a new Samsung galaxy tab 3. The demo @ Costco had a note app, thought it was call 'S Notes' but unable to find the right/same one. It had paper opt like yellow legal, white lined, grid paper and different writing types like pencil, pen, and marker. The biggest and most important part to me was that it turned hand writing into text and wasn't just a postit sized. I want to use it for creative writing and transfer to pc(word). I'm not sure it the demo could do the last part with the pc but if you know of one that can that would be ideal. Thanks.
Universal Cricket MMS 4.4 KitKat Solution No Root Required!
Friday 21st of February 2014
Once again I managed to find a temp solution for sending and receiving MMS on Cricket Wireless devices running Android 4.4 Kitkat. For Android 2.3-4.3 go here: YOU MUST HAVE TALK, TEXT, & WEB ON YOUR PHONE FOR THIS TO WORK! Works perfect on my Sprint Samsung Galaxy Note 3 This method requires using ChompSMS which can be downloaded on the play store Once downloaded, run the app and set it as you default messaging app if your phone asks to do so...IMPORTANT! 1. Next step go into settings and click on SMS & MMS Network Settings 2. Now scroll down to MMS Network Settings tab & click on "APN Settings" and open it and type the settings like this: MMSC: MMS Proxy: wap.mycricket.com MMS Port: 8080 3. After you've entered that go back and go down to where it says "Activate Mobile Data" and check the box, and go down to "Send Size Limit" and make sure its at 300kb Now try sending a mms to yourself using Chomp SMS & receiving with it as well... If Chomp SMS failed to send try sending with your WIfi turned off, double check you APN settings
Tablet owners can now enjoy free data, text and voice plans with FreedomPop
FreedomPop has announced that it will offer 500MB a month of free 4G LTE data for tablets that supports Sprint's network, along with direct sales of Apple's iPad mini and Samsung's 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3 on their website.The deal is the same as FreedomPop's previous offer for smartphones, which includes 500 messages and 200 voice minutes for free per month as well. If you want you can pay $7.99 a month for 500 voice minutes and unlimited texts, or $10.99 a month for unlimited voice and text, but the 500MB of data stays the same.If you go over 500MB a month with those FreedomPop plans, it will cost you one cent per MB or $10 per GB a month. However, there's also a plan for unlimited data, voice and text for $19.99 a month. FreedomPop is also selling the iPad mini starting at $319, along with the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 starting at $199.What do you think of this offer and is it a good deal for tablet owners with 4G LTE hardware?Source: FreedomPop
FreedomPop Adds The Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 LTE With Free Voice And Text Service To Its Hardware Lineup
Wednesday 30th of July 2014
FreedomPop is already a solid choice for adding a small amount of service to an unused phone, but now the FreedomPop online store also includes LTE versions of both the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 and the iPad mini. We don't particularly care about the latter (did you read the sign on the door?), but the Samsung tablet costs $199.99 at its promotional price, though the tiny type says it's a refurbished device. It's eligible for FreedomPop's free 500MB data plan.Interestingly, that plan also includes the standard FreedomPop 200 minutes of free cell service and 500 text messages, despite the fact that LTE tablets usually come to American carriers with voice calling and texting capability disabled. Galaxy Tab 3 owners as well as anyone who brings their own 3G/LTE tablet to the service will need to use the FreedomPop Voice and Text app to access phone calls and text messages. Since that's basically a VOIP system, keep in mind that making calls when you're outside a Wi-Fi network will probably eat into both your voice minutes and data allotment. Tablets can access the same conventional plans as pho
