I'm so confused as to why you are having so much trouble. Just go to VZW and get them to trade you a SGIII. You obviously have a GNex hex cast on you. I've never had and issues with mine except for some random data drops since launch day, no matter the ROM or radios I've tried. Sucks, dude.

They won't do anything except send me more refurb GNex-es. They won't budge.
I emailed the goddamn CEO and that was all his minions would do.

I can't think of anything I would actually use them for
Things like putting one on the washer and dryer to automatically launch a timer app will be great. I'll put one under my light switch cover near my front door to change configuration settings like ringer volume and such. Battery life is less of an issue with BT 4.0 and with newer version of Android in general, though.

Amazon.com: Samsung ETC-TT1G6NGSTA TecTile Programmable NFC Tags - Sim Cards - Retail Packaging: Cell Phones & Accessories
Those are the ones, but I went with the Prime shipping option. There are others available for cheaper, though.

I wouldn't worry too much about RAM usage. Free RAM on a phone is not like free RAM on a computer. Android likes to preload as much stuff as possible for faster access, and some ROMs are set to hold more things in memory than others. As long as the device is snappy and the battery life is good, don't be overly concerned with how it is managing memory.
1. Pantech burst

2. Pantech released rom, rooted.

3. Standard android messaging.

I'm not worried about the ram numbers per se, but so far (only a day in) my battery usage is worse.

Hmm... that's not normal; the keyboard in ICS normally disappears after sending a text (at least it does on my phone). Perhaps Pantech uses their own custom keyboard, and that is the problem? I would try going into the market and downloading the standard ICS (or even better, JB) keyboard and try that and see.

As for battery... I did notice a slight drop in life going from GB to ICS, probably because the GPU is being used for hardware acceleration all over the place. It wasn't a big deal though.


On a side note: I didn't even realize Pantech was making smartphones
One of my favorite dumb phones I ever owned was my Pantech C300 (I called it the Zoolander)


That little thing was cool. Until I accidentally destroyed it

Well the keyboard I'm using (both in gb and ics) is the stock Swype keyboard. I'll fiddle around with some others to see.

People are snapping these up for a little over $300 on ebay. I'm actually in the market for a tmobile Nexus so I can put a straight talk sim on it.

Anyone with AOKP having issues with Bluetooth tethering?

It worked fine if I tethered my N7 to my Nexus on mmuzzy's JB ROM. Now though, with AOKP, they pair fine and bluetooth connections work fine, but if I try to CONNECT the N7 it'll either immediately go right back to standby or it'll sit for a few seconds "Connecting..." and then go back to standby. No error message, no "can't communicate" message, etc.

Switched to the default KB and it still happens. Maybe it's just the stupid pantech/at&t messaging app?

Could be. You can try an alternative one like GoSMS to test that theory.

Nexus: 8:23hr

Web Browsing:
GNote 2: 8:48hr

Nexus: 3:01hr

Video Playback:
GNote 2: 11:27hr

Judging by these numbers, the iPhone 5 is amazingly thin yet incredibly also the perfect size. I guess the laws of physics are just suggestions.

I did about another hour and a half of kindle reading last night and all day today WiFi has been on but without a close signal so I don't know how much that may or may not have affected it.

So the Jellybean update on the Transformer Prime TF201 has fixed all the lagging issues and the browser wait/force quit problems. This tablet is finally running the way it should have on day 1. If you have one of these tablets and haven't done the JB update, I highly recommend doing it.

N7 guys, can you also post your screen times? Thinking about replacing my galaxy tab and want to see the screen on time.

Just fired off a pretty furious letter to Verizon's executive customer service. Again.

I've charged my tablet since the last screenshot I posted earlier but I know the screen on time was at least 4-5 hours.

Xan, I haven't really read up on all of the details revolving around your cell-phone situation. But I know you've been dealing with Verizon and the BS for a long time now(since the GNex came out in December?)

Seriously, i'm willing to put up a couple bucks so you can buy a different handset (Maybe even a GS3) from Craigslist or even retail from the store. I feel your pain--anyone else feel the same way? I don't know Xan, but he's been much more patient that I would be in this matter.
