My first smartphone. I paid £300 for it when it was released. Alot has changed since then now I own a S7
still power on 8-12-2019 well made phone. Sadly we are part of the matrix and they will make your hardware obsolete with new software! Some of my phones, Galaxy S, Galaxy S3, Galaxy note 4, current Galaxy note 9. Phones this days should last you good 3 to 5 years having a good protecting case, as always the problem is the software makes it outdated when the hardware still good. Is a shame that today's phones are priced from $700 to a $1000 and they become obsolete so quick.
Still have one.
not usable even in job, just leave it like nostalgia for your grandchildren

Anonymous, 08 May 2018am trying to install whatsapp but it can't open it please help it won't work, whatsapp doesn't support old phones anymore. I even tried older versions of whatsapp. if you wan't whatsapp, you need android 4 minimum.
If your Galaxy S still work and you want to use the device for practical tasks, this is what I did to keep it faster as after hard reset. Download apk extractor and save all your fav apps, then reset to factory settings and install all the apps from the apk files extracted, never set a gmail account on Play Store or Gmail to avoid to update Google Services. You can log in your gmail account by the native Email app. That way you will keep the phone working in an aceptable perfomance.
what do I do if it says(missing ID URI) I'm trying to set up my email ayddress

If you're adventurous (and rooted with ClockworkMod, etc) you can also update to 6.0.1 with OMNI ROM or Full Advance (also based on OMNI). I just did this couple of days ago (from SlimKAT 4.4).
Slower, way slower, of course than 4.4. But fully working 6.0.1 if you need one. Just remember to install the pico (smallest) version of Open GAPPS (system partition is too small for larger packages).
Alex, 11 Sep 2017Hello. My GT-i9000 was phased out of whatapp early this year on matters of OS or something rel... morego to xda developers and look for lineage os 4.4, it will work very well holding facebook lite, whatsapp and many other apps, but obviously it wont run heavy apps such as uber or games
