buyim, 20 Sep 2013less than 3 months my samsung w cant on/cant be chargedThat looks like a battery problem. check your battery's manufacturing date. Check if you battery is bloated by putting it in a flat table and spinning it.
less than 3 months means you still have warranty.. take your phone to the shop you got it from and demand them to honor your warranty.. remember to BE AS TECHNOLOGY DUMB AS POSSIBLE!!
If you are talking about tethering ? - I found it difficult on my old Xp laptop but with my new Win8 laptop, I just connected the handset to the laptop via a USB / mini uSB lead. I then went into the phone settings -> wifi -> clicked on tehering and it worked.
I had to turn wifi off on the laptop to stop the laptop trying to connect using both wifi and tethering-handset at the same time but it worked well.

joker, 13 Sep 2013i can't connect with my laptop . so pls suggest how to connect .go to SETTINGS> ABOUT PHONE
- what Android version do you see??
- if it is 2.3.6 or 2.3.3 go to SETTINGS> WIRELESS AND NETWORK> USB UTILITIES
- DO NOT CONNECT USB YET---click "Connect Storage to PC"
- Connect USB then there is a small wait and a small confirmation. when the Android picture goes yellow your device is now connected

Li-Ion batteries last 500 charging cycles and up to 2-3 years when left on a shelf
I'm using this phone for 19 month. About six month ago I started to have trouble with some apps. They closed or did not run correctly. The battery is weak, I need to charge it every 6 hours if I'm using the 3G (but isn't it the objective of a smartphone????).
Don't buy this phone, prefer a S"something" mini.

Lag comes from the outdated GPU not from the RAM
just set the game's graphics to low and play like a boss

summer, 31 Aug 2013is it safe for me to update my samsung W to jellybean.?
please reply me!
thank you.Flashing ROMs was never, is never, and will never be a safe thing to do because there is always the risk of "bricking" youre device -- even I get nervous everytime I flash a custom ROM (and I do that every week)
BUT... if done correctly it could it could change your phone for the better... I suggest you try reading posts in xda forums first before trying anything...
I made a guide on how to flash ROMs in page 2 or 3 in this comment section... start from the links there...
