Hey guys, as you know I took the plunge and bought a Galaxy S3 and I have to say i have gone from utter confusion to loving the device.
I do have a couple of things that really annoy me. The keyboard is poor especially with auto correct etc. What do you guys use for text entry?
The other thing is I miss badge notifications, I like to see missed tweet numbers or email numbers shown on the app icon like with iOS.  Can this be done in any way on ICS?
Finally talk to me about roms, can I get this S3 on a more stock rom and if so where should I visit to learn the process?
Thanks for all your help so far
