TB, 07 Feb 2011I have a question. some people manage to make the phone work for 2-3 days w/o charging it. how... morehey TB, you're the one that I don't know how you eat your battery life that quick. Im using my phone all the day with my wifi switched on and i'm downloading/installing/uninstalling applications almost all the day, and I charge it about every one and half days.
here are some tips that MIGHT WORK:
1-try using a task killer and kill your application regulary.
2-automatic display brightness is very important to activate.
3-maybe u have a virus or ur 2.2.1 firmware ver isn't the genuine one(I think). try formatting ur phone and use the original firmware.
4-maybe there's something wrong with your battery, if u think buying one, just wait till the new Galaxy SL is released and buy its battery. It has higher capacity and can be fully suited in your device.
5- If you're a heavy caller, then don't ever worry. Making calls is the most thing that eats samsung batteries.

Suggest you check all your settings go settings>location and security>useGPSsatellites and useSensoraiding are CHECKED MARKED.
also make sure WIFI is check marked.

AnonD-252, 01 Feb 2011If you still are 2.1 then this is the easiest way to root http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjBEB... moreRead my old comment that I now replied to if you want to install stock rom, and how you can root it.
If you want to install a custom, not stock, rom then read the information at xda developers forum about Galaxy S I9000 Android Development here http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=656
I recommend Darky`s 9.2 because it is easiest to install and you do not lose and apps or settings when you update it to newer versions. Easiest is to install the Odin version, and it and instructions can be found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=940671
(If you have cwm-recovery, can be found here http://www.multiupload.com/Q25HUP0YWF and know how to install and use it, then you can install Darky´s 9.2 through cwm-recovery, Darky´s 9.2 and instructions is here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=814091 )
I have been using the updated version of Android 2.2.1 since two weeks.I have bought the phone from Clove Technology from England.I have first updated the phone to Android 2.2 and now to Android 2.2.1.The Performance of the phone is much better than Android 2.2 but the main problem is the GPS.I really can't get anything on the GPS.It take ages to connect and before its gonna connect to something i already closed the application fed up waiting.I tried GPS on Nokia 5800 and Apple Iphone4 both respond very smoothly.Don't get me wrong Samsung Galaxy S is a great phone.But even with two update the GPS is the same no fixing it.The rest is fabulous.I recently did a test with an Iphone4 on the net.The Galaxy S wins by miles.Very Quick compare to the Iphone4.If anyone knows how to fix the GPS please do tell.As its the only thing that will make this great phone better.
