Smat, 13 May 2011Ok glad I read ur post, did what you recommended, and it updated. Still some issues with Kies ... moreNot easy for the average person on the street to do, i struggled a bit but got there in the end.Mine was branded so thought i would not get update but all come good in the end.I watched kies unpacking itself and their were 100s dynamic link libraries it shows how much technical complex software is in todays smartfones.
Darky92 is getting one shortly god knows what he will do to this beast.I have got all the files downloaded to push it to 1.5GHz but awiting a few more folk to try it to iron out any little setbacks like tonights setbacks updating software.
Hi guys, Just a quick question. How do i switch to 3g on this phone? At the moment when I use the internet it is running on edge but I can't find how to switch to 3g in the settings.
I had a samsung wave before this and you could switch between 3g and edge in the settings.
Any help would be appreciated.

Does anyone know the wired headphones with remote controls and mic functions working because the headphones coming with this phone does not have remote for Forward, Reverse and Volume Control.
I mostly listen music while riding bike and phone is in the pocket so with out remote i cant stop/play or roeward/reverse or control volume of my songs.

If you want to check your mail or browse the internet the quickest way is your smartphone. it is most helpful when your out.
Right i have reported myself to get link taken down.I have just been out now with same sitution as before but with high bitrate "The office" sitcom running but i could not replicate the issue.I am now going to do the software update.
Lets think about it. In the price of this, i could buy a very good laptop... And, why do i have to pay $500 if i can get the same functions on a 250-300$ device (forget lag). It is a good phone, but it's too much. Phones and tablets can never overtake laptops. Discuss, without being funny. I want to know who else thinks like me and who got answers for my thoughts. Thanks.
[deleted post]Thanks thats good news because my phone was not hot??I checked about 30 mins ago and did not see the info you just gave me,,thanks.
