Have any of u tried to update ur phone firmware with Kies? My Galaxy 5 won't update, it says in Kies that it can't be updated. From what I've read, the latest firmware is from octomber, mine is from august. Did u encounter this problem? I don't know what to do. I've read that those updates can fix wifi and gps problems.
those ppl here who r using galaxy 5 and said that this phone will get froyo, please show us some fact about that

Turning off wifi when it's not in used will help. Using a task manager also will help for killing misbehave apps. But one should use task manager with caution, by putting default processes (the ones that run when the phone just starts) in the ignore/exception list.

I bought this phone a few days ago and for price is quite a good handset. I turned off 3G and put onto 2G to save battery now unticked 2G as wanting to use 3G again and not showing on 3G on icons on screen.
Pls advised me how to get this back, I have also tried manual roam and not worked.
it has all the good feature you need from a phone..although i must say i have a few concern about the wifi same gps problem and i am aware that some of you may have the same problem i hope froyo will solve the problem :) and i just found out that once it upgraded to froyo... it can do multi touch :)
Hi Guys. I bought this set on 29th October,2010. It is really great phone with some amazing ability. what i like most is synchronization ability with google. u just need to put ur mail id and password and voila!my office mail(MS Exchange server) and personal mail configuration is just so smooth. sound quality is good. what my observation is :
1. 240 x 320 resolution with 2.8" is not good enough. this resolution is good for 2 or may be 2.2" screen.
2. battery power is not sufficient. u need to recharge daily. this is due to so many application is running in background.
3. so many free and priced app. u just download and enjoy.
4. for alarm u cant set mp3 song or radio. if any one knows any free apps so that i set radio station as alarm.
5. touch is good.
this is my first touch & business phone.
guys u know what...u need to understand the features completely ...
my mobile credit is running short dont know where it is going...applications automatic email log in etc.. :(
second tip: close down the unnecessary applications, audible sound etc...it consume ur battery alot!
People from the Brazil samsung support site states Latin American Froyo update for this will be early December.
BeNeLux states that it would be late November.
Based from the current trend of Samsung roll outs. Asia gets its dibss of the update the same time as Latin America. So expect your phone to be faster with the Froyo update come December.
My phone gets restarted when ever i click on the camera icon.. did any one face this problem?
