Now I understand the concept of internet pass-through. However, I don't understand the need for it.
What is the actual point when I can connect wirelessly via my router from anywhere in the house or garden, instead of hooking the phone to the PC via USB which is a bit of a ball ache by the looks of it.
It's also telling that no other manufacturer has bothered with it because there isn't any demand for it.

I've just done a quick Google search for HTC internet passthrough and it seems jOn is correct ( although, if he had explained himself a bit better there wouldn't be any confusion ). You can plug your HTC into a PC/laptop and use the PC's internet connection to browse the web on the phone. A sort of reverse tethering.
Mind you, it doesn't excuse jOn from being a Troll though.
the concept of internet pass through is that you can used your home internet access on the cellphone by not using any 3g that consume your load by just plugging the usb cable to the pc and phone and by that your cellphone has a internet access not using any 3g
I'm having a hard time understanding what it is you're trying to say, so I'll explain as best as I can.
When you are in range of your Home Wi-Fi network pull down the Notification pane and tap the Wi-Fi button. This will turn on Wi-Fi and connect to your home router for internet access on the phone. Are you with me so far?
Whilst Wi-Fi is enabled, the providers HSDPA will NOT be used.
However, if you still want to disable HSDPA then simply long press the power key and tap Data network mode to disable HSDPA. Tap it again to turn it back on if you need. Simple.

Are you right in the head? ALL WiFi enabled smart phones can do this, not just HTC.
If you're going to Troll at least come up with something intelligent.
ah using your internet from your pc not on your 3G cellphone...thats INTERNET PASS THROUGH only HTC has that features on the fone...desire s,wildfire s bcoz i have that kind of unit right now

I really can't recommend any apps because I'm not the sort of person who bothers with putting apps on my phone ( the SGS is pretty much wasted on me then ). So, to turn 3G off, press and hold the power key and tap " Data network mode ". That will disconnect your 3G network and will still allow SMS and calls.
Hope that helps.

I have downloaded an free app that does it in 2 moves instead of the usual 4. It is called 'My Settings', and can be identified with a round blue icon with a white cog wheel on it. It also has shortcuts to other settings that I change regularly as well.

For instance: when the Wi-Fi is connected than the 3G network access can be turned off so I wont use the providers network rather then my home internet access. Any Suggestions?
its a cool piece. takes sometime to learn. when fully known. its the best.
I lost my galaxy s today. I hadnt registered on my mobile. Is there any way by which I could track the phone with IMEI number?
fatos, 08 Jul 2011Hi..is it harmfull to clear the Ram on task menager..I think its not but I want the other opinions If you have any open apps with unsaved data then clearing the RAM will also clear the unsaved data. For instance, you might have a draft email open in the background which you intend to finish at a later time, but clearing the RAM in this instance will delete the draft email as well. So make sure you save all data before clearing the RAM.

You will need to root your phone first to be able to use it. Just Google for " rooting Samsung Galaxy S " for answers on that.
Can't recommend any anti-virus software as I don't use any. I know I should seeing as Android is susceptible to attacks from malware but I just couldn't be bothered.
One app I can recommend is Appbrain, which will give you further recommendations for apps you may like.
Anonymous, 08 Jul 2011Its prefered to charge about 6 or 7 hours Actually, it is preferred to charge it until it is full. Once it is fully charged after about two and a half to three hours, the phone will automatically stop charging anyway, so there is no point in keeping it plugged in to the charger.
still rocking the OG Galaxy S and I discovered a cool trick, when you hold the back button and the home button (the middle button) it takes an awesome screen shot.. posted it on my twitter account
Hi! I have always been a Nokia user and this would have to be the first time that I've purchased a Samsung phone, thus, I'm fairly new to the Android OS. I really am enjoying my i9000, and I also want to learn what programs perform well with it such as Back Up program, Virus Scanner, etc. I hope you have great recommendations. :)
Would it also be great to upgrade to Gingerbread? :) Thank you!
