Re: prime.tgif.network

The TGIF (prime.tgif.network) is actually still in active beta....althought it is an open beta that anyone can register for and get approval to test.

Where did "Battery Saver" option go?

Hey folks, I've loving the new OpenSpot3! Amazing hotspot; however, I have a question: Where did the "Battery Saver" option go? I go to "Advanced Options", then Settings and Miscellaneous. <See attachment> I DO see a "Power Saver" ---but I don't think that's the same thing. Maybe there has been an u...
