From day one it barely functioned properly and now a few years later I decided to resurrect it after a year dormancy and tried to charge it via a normal wall charger. No go. Even tried to plug it into a computer and it still does not live. I honestly cannot recommend any Samsung phone to anyone. The batteries are each unique to each phone, they are not interchangeable. The phones, themselves are hiccuppy and barely work properly. For a while I was using my Gio as a dashcam and even that only worked for an hour at a time and then it died. I will never buy another SAMSUNG phone ever. I have even resurrected my old 10 and 15 year old Nokia phones and found they still work the way they were designed, without having to upgrade software every week.

smokey, 21 Sep 2016how do i open the phone if i forgot my pattern?Turn off your phone. Open Recovery mode (home button + power button 5-10 seconds), select "wipe data / factory reset" and select "Yes - Delete all user data", then select "reboot system now". (Downloaded apps, messages, contacts etc. will be deleted).

necro48, 04 Sep 2015I found this ph next to worthless as the internal memory is so freaking small it won't allow y... moreBecause back in the day apps weren't as big and heavy as they are now. My first smartphone was a Gio and it worked pretty well. I had many apps installed and everything worked. But as phoned are getting better, apps are getting too. Which requires more memory. That's why you won't fit many apps on it anymore.
Still though: my phone broke a while ago, and I had to use my old Gio. I had whatsapp installed and some other apps so when you are really only using it for the very basic stuff it's still enough :)

how to open or restart my Samsung galaxy gio when forgeting my password
No possible way, yeah?
Then do tell me: How'S this possible, that back in the day, when it came out, I bought the phone, and played up to 3 different games on it, one of them was Tap-Tap Revenge 4 (size: over 80Mb) and at the same time had installed Facebook app and still GIO did not crash? :)
Suppose it was just a few good memories? ;)
I am not trying to set up my e-mail - it keeps coming up with an error message!
" setup could not finish - activation failed. Unable to connect to network, try again with network provider's default APN"
What am I doing wrong?
my verry first smart phone. Still working good n the camera is the best compared the rest on its price range. However, the small RAM is the problem :(. Still a good phone though (eventhough ther are not produced anymore, hahaha...) :D
Blertoni, 28 Nov 2014How to expand space on my phone I don't want to delete applications but how to import them in ... moreU can root this phone & download an app called 'move app to sd card'..then you can move the downloaded apps. There are some videos available on youtube that will instruct u how to root this phone.
I found this ph next to worthless as the internal memory is so freaking small it won't allow you to download any additional apps
Before the haters comment, i tried to install apps on this device straight after a clean install, hard reset, so it was brand new out of the box with NO downloads, and NO apps installed except what came with the device
There's no point recommending this ph to anyone, even as a first basic smart ph as you can't download and use any apps........as soon as you upgrade your "market" app to Play Store, there's no more room for anything else....that's it, you're done, the ph is full......no games, no apps, no nothing
A total waste of a device......I mean what on earth were Samsung thinking in manufacturing a ph with such abyssmal internal storage??....and by the way, there's no way to uninstall the apps that came with the ph unless you root it i guess
