Just wondering if other people have noticed increased battery life after alot of the NV upgrades as I have here in NYC. I typically would get between 7-8hrs on a GS3 on full charge. Now, using my girlfriends GS3, I get nearly 10hrs. That is a solid 20-30% increase in battery life. I did expect a slight bump in battery life..but not as much as I have ended up getting..
As a side note, I purchased an HTC ONE on release date and get about 12hrs on one charge with heavy use.
Samsung Galaxy S3
Verizon: Black, Blue, White ($0.01)
AT&T: Blue, White, Red ($49.99)
Sprint: Blue, White ($0.01)
Samsung Galaxy Note 2
Sprint: Titanium, White ($69.99)
AT&T: Titanium, White ($149.99)
So, after having my Gs3 for a couple months, and the wife has had her Gs3 since September as well, we're both seeing a few "quirks" with the GS3 working properly with the Airvana femtocell.
I finally broke down and called Sprint today, and after a 41 minute conversation with tech, they are going to send out the Airave 2.5 (the newest one that came out in ??June?? or so).
I just got this one last year around Feb 2011, when they introduced the 3G version...so maybe this will fix the problems I've been seeing lately (like the same text message being received like 10 times, or someone receiving the same text msg like 10 times...but you only hit send once).
The last straw was when I tried to make a call today, got the 3 beeps, and the person answered the phone but it sounded like a cell phone from 1998 in a bad roaming area. I could barely hear "he___ wh__ --- hu ---- th---- he---- bl---- "
and I just hung up.
Got mad and unplugged the thing, made same phone call again and (while roaming) I heard him fine. It wouldn't bother me much if the calls were just "hey how are ya" type things, but I run an at-home computer repair business, and this happened to be a business owner that I do thousands per year in computer work for....I need to hear what he's saying.
Anyone seen, or had any experience with the new Airave?
halcyoncmdr have you heard anything about them?? Hope they don't have the issues this one has seen. (the tech even pushed an update to it, but still decided to send one out anyway)...
When I previously used the rooted Wireless Tether app on the EVO 4G, I enabled WPA2 encryption right away. However, when I set up the current rooted app (now called Wi-Fi Tether) on the EVO LTE a few weeks back, I needed to make just a quick and dirty connection to my tablet, thus left encryption off for the moment. Well, today, I was in a room full of high school students and needed to do a little bit of light tethering, so I again launched Wi-Fi Tether on the EVO LTE. After a few minutes, I noticed that, in addition to my MacBook Air, two other clients had connected. A couple of the high school students' little iPhones had latched on like leeches to my unencrypted connection. Needless to say, I kicked their MAC addresses to the curb and decided that it was long past time to set up my WPA2 encryption as I had always done previously.
Advice: watch out for those wireless tether parasites.
