Phone would not Synch with Outlook
On the face of it this looks like a nice phone .
However using Kies (samsung software ) it would not Synch with Outllook . Vodafone were not helpful . The Kies ( synchronisation ) software was hard to find on the Samsung site . There was no real guidance in the box .
I received my phone yesterday and then had to phone samsung technical 3 times to resolve issue . However even after trying to synch with 2 sperate laptops running Windows XP and Window 7 and also doing a factory reset on phone , it still would not synch with outlook . The people at samsung said there is a software fault and that the handset should be replaced !!!!! Not good for a brand new phone that has just been launched . I have now been back in touch with vodafone and i have rejected phone and do not want a replacement Samsung Galaxy S2 as this has wasted too much of my time .
I intend to keep my HTC desire for a while and then upgrade to the HTC Sensation .
Lastly the phone appears very flimsy in my opinion , i dont think it will stand up to every day use .
There are a number of online blogs etc that confirm problems with synching as i have unfortunateley found out
fredje, 24 May 2011why are you stil using that one? There's a iphone with 32 gb yours has only 16.:-) I heard about samsung android with 2 cores rumour since mid of 2009 ;-) (don't ask me how) ... so I was waiting for SGSII since that day ...
as for iphone, I am not fan of apple and mac. I would even say the opposite, even though I admit iphone 4 is a good product but not enough for me. But apple guys are doing very good progress ... I am curious to see the result of iphone 5 (no, I am not talking about iphone 4S)
Preceptor, 24 May 2011Samsung Omnia i900 16 GBwhy are you stil using that one? There's a iphone with 32 gb yours has only 16.
Does this phone has A2DP profile . Pl confirm . It's not mention in specs sheet. Thanx in adv
the indian release does it come with the nfc chip ??
what about the 32gb there !!!
I want to comment on sgs 2 but want one in my hands to see what its like not what is speculative.
Pavly, 23 May 2011Isn't there any probable fix for this through software update or it is in the core of the came... moreI still do not have sgs 2 but had sgs and had darkys 9.5 on it,,i did not have time to learn how to get v10 on it.
Have sold noka n8 and n86 and using e72 ATM.I know darky92 and xda developers are onto sgs 2 and looking forward to see what they do .
You could ask if xda will do video recording with zoom built into a ROM.
Finally available for pre order in India...
Anonymous, 24 May 2011does enybody know exactly what month this phone is coming to the usaI don't think even Samsung actually knows..
Joe53, 24 May 2011Thanks great to see Amazon have it but Amazon USA can not ship to Thailand.Yeah it states no warranty also (whats up with that)but a "saving" of 8% = $73.04 sure
fredje, 24 May 2011which mobile are you using now?Samsung Omnia i900 16 GB
The 4400, 24 May 2011Just restating the obvious. These sellers have paid a Higher price 4 some sort of exclusivity ... moreSince this is the best phone....a "nec plus ultra" of mobile devices,it's natural to have a very high price...most of the times you have to pay a high price for best quality products.....
PS.....What did I tell you yesterday...?.....Where there's a will....there is a way...!
The 4400, 24 May 2011Just restating the obvious. These sellers have paid a Higher price 4 some sort of exclusivity ... moreTotally agreed my friend, in fact, yesterday, they started selling this cellphone in amazon.com at $899, now, I just checked and it's already at $826, probably the price will keep coming down, day by day.
Joss001, 23 May 2011Dude, why don't you buy it from amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004QTBQ2C/ref... moreJust restating the obvious. These sellers have paid a Higher price 4 some sort of exclusivity in this pre order phase, and R seeking to make the most profit from the sale of the unlocked item. Networks will also pay the same price less any volume discount if purchased now, which reduces profit per unit. Networks R purchasing @ a price which produces a level of profit and that appears 2 B NOT pre order prices, so delay. Demand exceeds supply and some are willing 2 pay that now, some not. No doubt a very small minority of sellers will 2 put it mildly not B able 2 fulfill any order now! having taken payment. This may B innocent in itself, I feel that U should not B charged until your order is a confirmed order wholesaler to retailler, at the earliest, that way U have a reasonable time scale 2 expect delivery. This is one of the highest I've seen
