Been playing around with theming lately, and this is what I've got so far. For those that use Google Voice, here's it blacked out with a combination of ICS blue text/white text. I love blacked out themes, and have been trying my hand more and more with XML/smali editing to get this done. It's a PIA! HUGE SHOUT OUT TO TEAM BAKED'S B_BOYTM FOR HELPING ME WITH THIS! THE SMALI EDIT TEXT FOR THE TRANSCRIPTION COLORS WAS A PAIN, AND HE WAS A BIG HELP WITH THIS! GREAT DUDE WHO WILL SHARE KNOWLEDGE, GREAT RESOURCE/EXPERIENCED! I'm sharing this because I'm pretty proud of it. You'll notice some theming with the setup screens, and it'll seem like it's not done. It isn't. But since you only see it one time, I did my best. There's other areas. If there's something a-miss, screenshot it and let me know. I'll try my best to look at it and correct it. The other thing I should note too is that I am running BB6 CM10 that I built from source yesterday, so I hope this looks the same across all ROMs. If that's not the case, please let me know what ROM you are using if you notice issues and I'll take a look when I have time. No guarantees, but I'll try. Install: Uninstall your current version of Google Voice. Download this apk to your sd card/internal storage. Browse to it, install like any other apk file. (NOTE: Reboot if you have issues installing, and try again.) Open, profit! Download: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22133237/com.google.android.apps.googlevoice-1.apk
I recenty got the Galaxy S3 (and found this forum ) I tried setting up my Google Voice to receive my voicemails, but to no avail. I found a list of codes to use, but that didn't work either. Now when I call my Galaxy, it says "Your call cannot be completed." How do I go about fixing it to receive calls again? And I'd love to find out how to get Google Voice working, also EDIT: Managed to get my calls going through again. Now if anyuone could help me get GV working, I'd appreciate it
rzdw92 posted a topic in Galaxy S III DiscussionI've started a journey away from US Cellular's CDMA & 3G service and replaced it with 4G data-only and thought I'd share my experience so far. I'm still using my US Cellular Samsung GS3, although I no longer have cell service or mobile data provided by USCC. I'm getting my wireless data thru a device purchased from a new startup called FreedomPop. Here's my devices: - Samsung Galaxy S3 (SCH-R530U/d2usc), rooted and running CM10, baseband LF9 - FreedomPop Photon 4G mobile WiFi hotspot First, why am I doing this? It's mostly price and broadband speed considerations. I'm located in the Chicago area where we only have 3G service available. There's no 4G USCC service here and no offerings on the horizon. Basically with everyone around me using 4G on Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, etc., I'm annoyed with USCC dragging it's feet and going nowhere. Moving to the FreedomPop 4G service costs $18/mo. for 2GB of data (with $1 per 100 MB overage fee) so I'm saving quite a bit. We had 3 devices on a USCC family plan at a total cost of $180/mo., but now we're down to 2 devices at $140/mo. (net savings: $22/mo.) With fewer devices and less usage, I'll probably look to change to a cheaper USCC rate plan in the future (or possibly make the same change on another family device). Google Voice is free so there's no cost for my call minutes or texts. So basically I've upgraded my speed while reducing my monthly cost. My biggest hurdles I figured I had to overcome were: - Is the 4G service coverage area adequate? - Can I reliably send & receive calls & texts using only a data connection? Carrying around a second battery-powered device is a lesser, but still important consideration. I'm about two weeks into this, so how is it going? As far as coverage goes, things are positive. In my work, I don't travel at all so I'm basically in one coverage area all the time. FreedomPop currently uses Clear's 4G Wimax service so wherever Clear has coverage, I have coverage (meaning I can get calls, texts, and data). The Photon hotspot gets a strong signal in my home area (suburban area), at work (downtown Chicago), and just about everywhere in between, indoors and out. FreedomPop will be shifting away from Wimax over to Sprint's 4G LTE service as that comes online (early 2013-ish) so that may change things up a bit. The Photon hotspot gets about 6-7 hours of battery life before I have to plug it in for a recharge. To make & receive calls on a data-only connection, I'm using the Talkatone VOIP app in conjunction with Google Voice. I use wifi obviously to connect to the Photon hotspot. My first step though, was porting my US Cellular number over to Google Voice (which cancelled my service with USCC). I decided to port my number so that people could continue calling me on the same cell number I've had for over 10 years. I already had a Google Voice account with a Google-provided number so porting my cell number in gave me 2 phone numbers on my Google Voice account. It took about a day for calling to be activated on my new Google Voice number, and it took about 3 business days for texting to start working on the new Google Voice number. There are several VOIP apps available and I tried a few before settling on Talkatone. GrooveIP and Sipdroid worked, but they had way too much echo for the person at the other end of the line, and no amount of fiddling with settings could get rid of it. Also, I couldn't get my bluetooth headsets to work with these apps. Talkatone worked great from the get-go, including bluetooth. The only issue I have sometimes is a slight delay (like you get on international calls) but it's pretty minor. VOIP calls use about 1MB per minute, and I typically use no more than 200-300 minutes per month, so data usage is not an issue. One side benefit is that my S3 itself now has better battery life because the radio is turned off (airplane mode): it never has to search for a cell tower signal which is always a battery drain. Again, my biggest concern was: would the combination of 4G data-only coverage and VOIP be reliable enough to get by without having actual cellphone service? Two weeks into this, I have to say so far so good. My work also provides me with a cellphone so I admit, this made it easier to take the plunge. I forward Google Voice to my work cell as a backup, but I haven't had to use that yet. Anyhow, sorry for the long posting but I thought others might be interested.
