gww, 19 Jan 2011haha.. i've already bought my sgs yesterday.. :p hmm.. now i'm trying to update my sgs to 2.2 ... moreI have just upgraded my GS to 2.2.1 Froyo and it works wonders! I used to have non-working Skype with Eclair 2.1 and a music player which constantly stops,it was all resolved with Froyo plus some additional gadgets like auto-rotate on/off, places, latitude etc..try to install/ reinstall the KIES program connect/ disconnect trick till it works. Goodluck! You will really enjoy your new GS.

viraf, 18 Jan 2011hey gaurav hi. Remember me? Was not checking sgs forum since long. Hey did u used N8? You said... moreYeah, one of my friends has a N8, one of the reasons I dont like it is because its Symbian, the UI is very dull. The application startup of the phone is pretty slow, the keypad doesnt look good, also it doesnt have sweep/swype text, that makes your typing speed very slow, the application market is too expensive, whats the use of such a phone when you've got to pay for all the HD games? N8 is just a better hardware version of 5800, better touch screen and processor thats it.

I just had my Galaxy for a week now and up until this moment i could not believe that this phone is so wonderful. Right now i am playing music from GS to my laptop through bluetooth and it is awesome!Before buying it, i read the reviews between i phone 4 and Galaxy S, and Samsung excels in all fields, and the display, wow! Video? Amazing!soo clear and sharp! Go for Galaxy!!

u should try it.. to get yr 3 combo buttons works is very complicated as i am now in the the process of fixing it..
Cheer & Peace..

Still need to root and install lagfix, so to speak. With gingerbread, that's another story. I agree with Cambodia SGS that if you want your sgs to fly then you'd have to take some risks.
Rooted and OCLF lagfixed: 1855 benchmark score^^
