  1. "Samsung account" is not an option when I tap "Accounts". Why can't I create or log in to my Samsung account?

    1. Hi fshalabs,
      Thanks for coming here.
      Also I'm so sorry if the steps I've mentioned above is not clear for you. Once you tap Account, then tap Add account (+) icon. Here you should see Samsung account in the list.
      Hope this helps :)

    5. Hi Jimmy Steene,
      Thanks for coming.
      I'm so sorry to say that I don't know much about Galaxy S2, but I believe that it has some similarities with the Galaxy S3. Well, if your Galaxy S2 has the stock apps provided by Samsung (eg: Samsung Link, Samsung Apps, etc), try to open that app. You'll be prompted to sign in with your Samsung account--if you already have one-- or create new account--if you don't--. In this case, try to create new Samsung account from here.
      Hope this helps :)

      Thanks for coming.
      Please make sure you have entered the correct email address. Another way, you may want to try to create Samsung account through your PC or laptop, once you've finished then you can activate it on your phone (see the step #5 and tap Sign in button to activate an existing Samsung account).
      Hope this helps :)

  4. Now that I've set up my samsung account on my galaxy s3, where do I find the shortcut/widget to quickly and easily access the account and adjust the settings (if possible)

    1. Hi Shane Hodges,
      Thanks for coming.
      What the Samsung settings do you want to adjust?
      However when you go to Settings> tap "Accounts" tab> tap your Samsung account, from here you can disable or enable sync and change the password of your Samsung account.

  5. I'm also curious about battery issues. My galaxy s3 is only two months old. I keep auto sync off along with wifi, bluetooth, all of it. I follow every step on prolonging your battery life span. At first, after a full charge, my battery would last about 4 days with normal use (which is basic non picture texting and maybe a few phone calls and very minimal data usage throughout the work days). Now, I'm lucky if a full battery lasts 2 days with the same normal usage. Any tips, answers, or suggestions?

    1. Hi Shane Hodges,
      Thanks for coming back here.
      Try to turn on Power saving by swiping down the top of the screen using two fingers and then tap Power saving button to enable it.
      Or, you can try to use an app(e.g: Juice defender) that will let you easily control the radios schedule.
      Anyway, 2 days are still great :)
