Is the official 2.2.1 released yet?
I mean, I live in Asia and i don't know for sure if it's available or not. How did you do it?
Excellent phone, great specs and a pretty decent camera too....so long as there is plenty of backlighting! Only bad thing is it has a tendancy to freeze every now and then. Overall, still a fantastic product!
I want samsung to bring out official lagfix..They should build it into kies update..If it can be done by outsiders surely samsung can do it..There is always something wrong in smartfones why cant they get it right for crying out loud????
tictoc, 30 Dec 2010Just downloaded a clock app to my phone and it just ate the remaining nine pounds of credit.
... moreI feel your pain and bet you felt sick..I am in uk and pay 7.50 pounds or GBP a month for 500MB data..In the past it used to be 4.30 and a mistake meant all your credit gone,its sickening i know ive done it many times..
Also lost credit joining a game company and it just keeps taking credit saying you have now joined this,,top up again and it says congrats you now joined this and took my credit again.I went to police and they told me to destroy sim..However i was annoyed and went looking for company but it was just an old garage with a lock on it.i hate mobile fones sometimes..:-(((
SamxyS, 30 Dec 2010Finally, do you update to 2.2.1 thru Kies?
The same problem with GPS on 2.2, really can't get... moreYes 2.2.1 via Kies.
I am strictly talking about official releases. Overall phone is more responsive, web browser feels faster. But as I mention, Samsung seems to keep their own RFS file system which really handicapped Android and Galaxy S.
With GPS, it had never worked before. I would get satellite lock very rarely and lose it immediately. With 2.2.1 so far it only struggled to get a lock on the overground train in open air and when stationary. Not sure if this expected with trains or the GPS is still some what sub par.
Trying to update to froyo but its not available for my product code in Greece. That is sad because we live almost in 2011 and Samsung still dont know what customer support means. By the way, my product code ends in "EUR"
For all of those guys who are complaining about their balance being vanished mysteriously, I woul suggest to download APNdroid from market. put it as a widget on the home screen, when activitated, it will block all internet access requests through you service provider.
Hope it will help. Have fun
Just downloaded a clock app to my phone and it just ate the remaining nine pounds of credit.
On checking, I found I had not unlocked my wifi this time.
I give up. Don't use these type of phones on pay as you go.
I've now ripped out my sim card and just use the phone for camera and games.
tictoc, 30 Dec 2010maybe I'm paranoid, but I find you have to watch out when downloading games on your phone be... morepointless even trying to run a smartphone on pay as you go. the data charges will eat your credit like mad
maybe I'm paranoid,
but I find you have to watch out when downloading games on your phone because when you play them, some want to upload your high scores to the net, therefore costing you money.
After having all my credit mysteriously wisked away, I never play games on my phone unless I'm at home and connected to wifi.
Having said that, I haven't taken my phone out of the house since I got it for xmas, and after putting another ten pounds credit on it today, I found it's used a pound of it already and I haven't used it at all.
Can somebody tell me whats happening, otherwise I'll have to get rid of it and go back to my Sagem.

KK-India, 30 Dec 2010I have used symbian and windows mo. Please suggest me whether to go for N8 or Galaxy S. My ke... moreAndroid is the best mobile os at the moment. the growth rate is incredible. Symbian sucks. the UI is slow and the overall performance is crap. Windows mobile was ok but the new version is also very disappointing. I suggest you get an android phone. U should wait for a couple of months. there would be some dual core android phones.
after thoroughly testing galaxyS and Xperia X10...i found out that galaxy overall is much better than the X10...much smoother touch...better memory...the super AMOLED has no comparison...better user experience...i find galaxy's 5mp is better than X10s 8mp... Flash in X10 is just useless...the only thing X10 is gud in is overall luks...but galaxy is not that way behing...only if samsung had used better quality plastic on its back cover..it would hav done wonders...but still ill prefer galaxy any day.....
I have used symbian and windows mo. Please suggest me whether to go for N8 or Galaxy S. My key factors are battery, email, web, office apps, fring, youtube and general apps?
I have not used android till date.
Thanks in advance.
