Jay Bee, 20 Nov 2015My at&t SGH1717 is slow, is it anything to do with the RAM? how do i solve the problem?This has to do with Flash getting "dirty". Clean flash storage starts with all "11111..."s. Once it is written to data "1001101...", even it it is no longer needed, "0"s cannot be simply written back to "1"s. Valid data has to be moved to another available space, and the dirty block then has to be erase back to all "1111...". This is a very slow process and the old phone just gets slower and slower.
Phone maker has no incentive in cleaning these dirty space since they want you to buy a new phone. PC was in the same situation. Finally Micradded a background garbage collection service called TRIM. Phones has no such utility.

Use Kies to upgrade your operating system to either Ice-cream-sandwich (Android 4.0) or jelly-bean(Android 4.1) and Play store should be there.

help, i bought used samsung note bt at time it on and off itself, what can i do?
Hello I need some help please,
I bought on E-Bay an used Samsung Galaxy Note I717 and after I started to use it, I found out that the speaker is not working. I checked the volume inside but nothing happened. Now, I have to fix this problem by my own because I don't have any warranty. I would like to know where I can buy this speaker? Thank you
Would anyone be able to develop a ODIN-Flashable rom with all of the AT&T bloatware removed, including those that interfere with the hotspot etc? like there must be a few android native .apk files that can be in place of the .apk apps that AT&T installed as default and unremovable. I just want a samsung stock rom with NO AT&T software and the samsung touchwiz software. Not that hard.
