    Don't worry, it should come back. Now might be the time to buy more!

    If it makes you feel better, I bought some at 600.

    Dropbox. Same as I share with Android users. Seriously, I'm never standing next to someone with whom I want to share anything, so being able to touch is not all that useful.

    I find all of these Iphone v sg3 ios v android funny. everything is a matter of opinion when it comes down to it. everyone has a difference in opinion and preference of what they like need or want in a phone. people who love this and hate that only say so because they have found a product that has suited there needs more than the other one. while the person on the other side of the fence has done the same with theirs . i dont condone the bashing but do find it fun to read once in a while. I was an early android adopter loved it then for the fun customizing and openess. i will always love it for that. now i have an iPhone 5 and i am loving the cleanliness and smooth ui. i am happy with both os' . so to each his/her own. What ever floats your boat. be kind and rewind.

    I will tell you why they are upset because despite all the talk about how superior the GS3 and Note2 are to the iphone 5, there are crucial functions that they cant do. I asked a simple question in a thread about the Note2 on Android Central

    http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...gnote-2-a.html

    Can the phone voice navigate from your address book. Can you press the home button and say "navigate to..." and the navigation will start up. I tried that on my JB gs3 and does not pick up the name and associated address from my contacts.
    I have yet to get an answer. I would think that the ability to voice navigate your contacts would be a big deal!!! Would it not? I tried doing it on a Jelly Bean GS3 and could not. Maybe Kilofox can weigh in?

    My wife has the Razr M with JB and this navigate to contact thing was annoying me because i hadnt thought of trying it. so as soon as she got home i swiped her phone from her and pressed the microphone and said "navigate to mom" and it started up navigation and navigated to the monster in laws it also lets you "message mom, i'll be there soon!"

    anywho there will never be an end to the arguements of which is better because most are incapable of realizing other peoples needs are different than there own.

    Could you please give me a step-by-step of how you did it. Did you go from the google now menu after you press and hold the home button? Or did you go from the microphone on the nav menu? Or did you go from the microphone on the google search box from the home screen?

    I believe this will be a manufacturers overlay (MotoBlur vs Touchwiz) discrepancy and less about Android or JB.

    Well it is not doing it on my GS3. I even posted a specific thread on it on Android Central and no one has showed me how to do it.

    http://forums.androidcentral.com/sho...d.php?t=240589

    180 views and not one person could show me how to do it and yet there are some here claiming it can be done on ICS. My brother has an ATRIX 2 on ICS and his phone cannot voice navigate from contacts.

    Not exactly. Skins have been known to break pure Android functions. What you may be able to do with your Nexus doesn't by any stretch of the imagination mean that Samsung was able to properly accomplish the same task after adding TouchWiz over top of either ICS or JB.

    You know what they say, "People are scared of what they don't know". Hence some Android users are scared of the iPhone 5, they'd hate to feel like they are cheating or something. LOL

    When I do that with the google now or from the google search with the microphone it does not work. I get a search if places that have "brother" in them.

    The video does NOT show me anything that is new. Believe me when I tell you that I have searched and found nothing of what I was looking for.

    Please show me where the GS3 can do what I just posted I wanted to do in my previous post. I really want to know if JB with touch wiz can do it. This is an important feature for me since I do not have nav in any if my cars and I do not have a hand held nav either. My phone is my Nav and it must work with voice commands from my CONTACTS.

    Really? Voice dialing gives you turn by turn directions? I guess Android is more complicated than it looks, cause when I use voice dialing on my iPhone I just make a call. I'd hate to try voice dialing and wind up at someone's house by mistake.

    all of the skins applied over google aosp have to be integrated into the features that google aosp has created. yet some of these skins have not ironed out all the bugs so you get features that are supposed to work that are not at the moment. you can take the long route and complain to Samsung. I know this feature works on my wifes Motorola RAZR M, which runs jelly bean.

    I believe that was the whole point. Not all Android features work on all Android phones - regardless of the version of Android installed.
