Using the Smart Alert Feature on Your Samsung Galaxy S III

Your mobile device supports a feature called Smart alert. Smart alert is a motion gesture that will cause your device to vibrate when you pick it up and when notifications, such as missed calls or new messages, are waiting.

Turn On Smart Alert

You can turn on this feature in the motion settings menu.

  1. From the Home screen, touch Menu > Settings > My device > Motion.

  2. Touch the slider off to turn Motion on, if not already turned on.

  3. Mark the checkbox next to Smart alert to turn the feature on.
