[deleted post]sorry no idea about it since never did it. but if your purpose is just to have a backup then you can download sms backup apps from market. they'll backup/restore your messages to/from your sd card.
ok i'll add you.
rev, 27 Jan 2012is that galaxy gio support for skype???Yes you can install skype on your galaxy gio. There's an official skype app in market.
However, I've yet to figure out how to do video chat on it without having front camera. I couldn't even watch video of my friend who was talking to me on skype from his iphone4. If anyone knows, do let me know.

I didn't feel any lagging either.
Also, you can search on youtube to find out that people are playing NFS on gio. :)

I am still unable to download ad... moreOn gio, you can't download flash player from market because there is no official flash support for armv6 processors.
However, if you root your gio then you can easily install flash player on it. I have installed fully functional flash player 11.1 (that's the latest I think) on my gio and I can not only watch live tv (a few channels of my interest) but also play flash based videos (which can be optimized for mobile viewing like 240p etc.) and online flash based games.
i dont recomend this phone because i have this phone and it has poor graphics for games. i cant even play raging thunder. it is also very slow mobile.

shahil, 24 Jan 2012when updated to gingerbread are applications installed straight to sd card?????????and is akie... moreNo you'll have to manually move them to SD card and not all apps could be moved.
Upgrading via kies is better than odin because your warranty will remain intact (if its still valid). For flashing via odin, you'll have to search for specific gingerbread build that samsung in your country is currently offering and that may be a bit difficult.
So, you better go with kies upgrading!
CC, 24 Jan 2012does this phone have video calling,if yes how do you set it up?No, and that's disappointing!
when updated to gingerbread are applications installed straight to sd card?????????and is akies update the best or should i download the file directly from the internet and install it with odin?????
Sound quality when listening music over headphones is terrible comparing to my old Nokia 5310 XpressMusic. Phone keeps catching some pulsing noise. It is not so noticeable in noise environment during day, but it drives me crazy in quite environment (night or evening).
Radio quality is even worse. I can't listen radio at all - 20-30% is buzzing noise.
I tried various headphones, but got same issues. The more expensive headphones I used - more noise they captured.
I thought that maybe my phone is broken. But when I borrowed another phone I got same issues.
dodhy99, 21 Jan 2012It is one of the most cheap and shoddy Saumsung Android phones in the market. Horrible battery... moreI am quite a serious user of gio (rely on it from GPS navigation, watching live tv, communicating with friends via social app to daily email/message/phone call) and I tell you that it is a great phone (and pretty affordable too here in Pakistan).
Wifi issues are there on froyo so if you upgrade to gingerbread they are gone. Also the freeze/shutdown issue goes away with upgrading too.
As for battery issues then it depends upon usage. Sometimes I have charged my battery twice a day and sometimes after 2-3 days. It totally depends upon usage. But I agree that it doesn't have a remarkable battery timing.
I in no way tried to prove you wrong. Just wanted to tell others the solutions to the problems you faced.
sheik, 22 Jan 2012hai guys am going to buy tis ph tell me it is good r bad guys pls and hw was the camera clarit... moreIts a very good phone. Camera is reasonable with 3.15MP resolution. Picture quality is nice too if exposure is good. Check the picture quality from gsmarena's picture quality tool. It offers many other features as well. If you're asking about camera flash then no it doesn't have that. However, you can install adobe flash on it.
