Everytime that I try to start Orbot on my Samsung Galaxy S3 Phone, I get an App Conflict message. It says "Please disable this app in Android->Settings->Apps if you are having problems with Orbot: com.sec.msc.nts.android.proxy." Then I have to hit OK to exit. After that I can use Orbot, but now, after I disabled the Samsung app that seems to have its tenacles in every part of the phone like Big Mother, I still get the message to dump Orbot. I have several thoughts on this, but I want to get your take on this problem.

Is Orbot functioning otherwise, even with the message?
