After you follow the instructions you should be able to use the internet,fb,twitter.
In iphones, after its connected, it opens a pop-out and, you just follow as instructed.
whereas in android , the pop-out does not appear. you will have to open up the browser to lead to that pop out.

Mae, 15 Jun 2012I've been using this phone for almost 3months already and it's pretty good but I have some pro... moreHello :D
For your problems:
1) I used to have this delay when i was using the touchwiz launcher that comes with the phone. When i changed to a lighter launcher (which is ZEAM LAUNCHER) i don't have this delay anymore. My advice is to try another launcher than touchwiz because it's a heavy one.
2) The browser eats up alot of RAM. The available RAM of the phone is 351 MB. When the used memory is more than, lets say, 90%, the system closes running apps to improve performance. My second advice is to run one application at a time (other than the launcher, of course) and in the browser, try to have one page opened only.
I don't have any idea about the third point, sorry.
I'm using this phone for about 1 week, till now I have two issues about it and really they r annoying !!
first, this phone keep restarting ( rebooting ) itself, about 3 times daily. i don't know why ??? and i can't find any reason for that !!!!
the other issue is about the internal memory ,when installing a program all the data are installed on the usb storage which is only 1.7 gb , and i don't find any way to move it from the usb storage to micro sd .
i was using lg and i don't face such a problem , all the data were installed on the micro sd , and no rebooting at all .
i wonder if anyone faces these problems and if there is any way to solve them ?????

Mae, 15 Jun 2012I've been using this phone for almost 3months already and it's pretty good but I have some pro... moreI also have this phone for 2 months now.. i've downloaded many applications. I'm also experiencing the same delay when u press the back button.. but not for a minute.. it usually takes less than 10 seconds to load the home screen when u press the back menu.. for example I was browsing facebook and pressed back and back again to go to home screen.. it takes time to load the icons.. it takes less than 10-15 seconds..
This phone is really great becaUSE of it has fast wifi access and net.. i really love it.. it lags sometimes but u it's ok..
I've been using this phone for almost 3months already and it's pretty good but I have some problems. Here's some:
1. When I press the back button, It takes one minute before all of my apps/my home screen loads. I only have few apps though and I deleted some games too. And last time, I can't press my back button but it's already okay now coz I just restarted it. Any suggestion on how can I prevent from waiting for one minute to load?
2. I love surfing the net and checking my facebook twitter instag etc. Sometimes, when I already read 25 posts or 35 posts (i think?) it automatically goes back on home screen (usually on instagram and facebook). And when I use my 3g/wifi it's battery only lasts for about 3-4hours and I also use many power savings for it. And my brightness is the lowest (I don't know how to say it lol). I don't really care about the battery thingy coz I can charge anytime anywhere though, but can somebody help me with the facebook/instag problem?
3. I can't connect to some public wifis like Mall free wifis. Since I bought this, It NEVER connect to mall free wifis. AND I HATE IT, coz almost everyday I go to malls. Any idea why is this happening?
If these problems are already fixed, galaxy w. is beautiful. All in all i'll give 4stars :-)
Btw, Pardon my English! And I need replies asap :( thanks!
