Got the Samsung Galaxy S3 last week (on Verizon) and am surprised to learn that the phone can only check for new email every 15 minutes. Does anyone have a way to work around this - an app or widget? I asked if the iPhone checks more often and they said no. I have a hard time believing that. There must people others who are compulsive about email as I am (and as Blackberry is set up to serve).
Anyone here ever been plagued by malware called Xtendmedia and gotten rid of it? It's adware - popups. I've does scans (microsoft, McAffee, Spybot, Avast) and even had extra support from McAfee to no avail.
Best practices - this isn't exactly tech support, it's more like social media, but hope it's OK to share. Do you ever follow someone on Twitter, only to get a spam message in response? Well today I had the opposite happen. I got a thank you response where the person thanking me gave me some social media love. Here's what I got after following him/her: Real Estate Web App@RealEstateWebAp Meet @MaryPopeHandy #realestate #realtor in #losgatos for #siliconvalley area. Hey thanks for following us, apprecaited! @RealEstateWebAp I thought it was awesome and wanted to share. What a great practice, worth emulating!
I haven't started using QR codes (yet) so perhaps I don't fully understand them - but isn't the point of them to direct someone to a website? I just got an email from a real estate firm, trying to do a soft sell recruiting, and they put a QR code at the bottom of the letter. My initial reaction was "these guys are morons" since a link would have been more appropriate, but maybe I just don't get some angle on this? (At least with a link you can see where they're trying to send us.)
You can always manually check whenever you like (well, at least you can on an iPhone. I assume the same with a Droid). Constant polling for new email seems like it would be a huge battery suck, but who knows. I just have my mail pushed whenever I'm ready to read it.
