Worst phone I ever chose -
1) Touch screen to sensitive
2) Phone is to complicated
3) Netweork provider does not inform you off aplications running in the background - hence Air time been taken without you knowing
4)you are limited to your ring tones - cannot personalize it to the caller

If you have been backing up your apps then I think it won't change settings.

I looked into the settings but it wasnt there :/
and if i restore the defaults wud it change the settings i made to installed apps ?

well, one more question, i heard before upgrading that ginger bread uses less amount of ram than froyo but in my case that is totally reversed :|
i was using around 160-170 mb in froyo and with the same apps ginger bread is using 200-210 mb of ram :/ what is that ?

Salam. friends thanks for your responses, whatever the reason would be,but Samsung must provide flash player support with gingerbread update, because it is the major update in gingerbread, if there is no flash player support, what is then big benefit for updating to gingerbread? it just brings some display benefits.
To Ali- Try re store factory settings Ali, may be it fix your problems inshaAllah. but before re store factory settings must back up your data,specially contacts and calendar etc. the data in sd card isn't deleted in restoring factory settings. Best of luck:-)

Are there any big processes going on in the background while you're typing message? Even with one and two programs running in background I never noticed this but may be your programs, if running in background, are heavy on your RAM...?
Ali, 17 Nov 2011@ Shahid: i guess this is not the gingerbread this is ur fone that doesnot support flash. I ob... moreThe actual reason is the processor which is armv6. Flash is compatible with armv7 processors and so on.
Developers have developed flash for armv6 but for that you have to root your phone.
I want to ask one thing. Since I get my fone to version 2.3.3 my Space bar doesnot responds promplty as the other keys do secondly, the key at the bottom left (which shows special characters) also lags in response, This annoys alot and damn frustrating that every time u need to go back delete ur text and put spaces in between them :'(
My key pad keys were perfect when i got the froyo preinstalled. Is there any solution regarding this? Is there any one having the same issue or i m the only unfortunate one :D
shahid, 07 Nov 2011No Adobe Flash Player support even AFTER updating to android 2.3.3(official) gingerbread.!!!!!... more@ Shahid: i guess this is not the gingerbread this is ur fone that doesnot support flash. I observed that the fones like galaxy S or comparable fones can easily play flash coz they have bigger screens like 800*450 resolution and gio have small screen 320*480. I guess that is the limiting factor. If u know the actual reason pls let me know

Do note for future that if you are not familiar with folders then connect your gio to laptop and turn mass storage on. Your gio will appear as removable drive in my computer. Go into that drive, select the folder and copy your files (pictures, music, videos whatever).
Awesome phone with touch near to iPhone.
Camera result is good and battery backup is good as well.
Speed is a bit slow if u run angry birds on it otherwise the phone is superb as compared to its price.
I have this samsung gallaxy gio s5660M and I connected it to my lap top and down loaded pictures into the phone, but can not find them any where, how do I get my pictures onto my cell from lap top?

It will start loading WLAN drivers. When it will tell you that driver loading successful then just connect the wifi again and it will connect!
Yes, upgrade is available in Pak. If you're not getting the notification then upgrade your kies first and then you'll get gingerbread upgrade. So far, I have not encountered this wifi problem on my gingerbread so I assume it was only in Froyo.

Hey, i got this phone a month ago, and one thing i notice is a problem with the wifi, it sometimes gives error. And have to restart my phone to get the phones wifi to turn on.
I also wanted to upgrade to ginger bread. Is the update available in pakistan?
Do i have to root my phone for that?
AnonD-27902, 14 Nov 2011it was kpa in all fields. like pda:kpa/phone:kpa etc.thank uuuuuuuu!!!! jus finished upgrading gingerbread!! lets hope this solves my auto shutdown (SOD) issue!! fingers crossed!!! thanxxx for ur constant help!
elim, 11 Nov 2011is it possible to play battlehearts in this phone?You can check it easily. Go to android market, log in to your a/c, click on your desired game and it will tell you if it is compatible with your gio. If it won't be, market will inform you that this app/game is incompatible with your device.
