Go to the phone settings and verify that 3G is activated.
You can proceed like this:
Settings> wireless and network > select use packet data.
Just 3 lines after click network mode and select GSM/WCDMA (auto mode).
If it doesn't work like that or don't find these options in your settings, you've a copy phone, not a genuine galaxy S.

if you have the international version (i9000), you can update it yourself directly to 2.2.1
Just follow the few steps by clicking the link below:
It's an official samsung update and there's no risk at all as you'll use samsung Kies to update!
2.2.1 works perfectly, no lags, no troubles :)

I have a Canon DSLR ... any N8 owners want to challenge???
microsoft exchange and outlook ? has anyone use it? does it works on i9000?

than Eclair, they add some features too.
But 1st you have to get the Latest Kies in order to update yr phone, I got my SGS 2.2 already..
VCU, 20 Dec 2010I am interested in getting the Galaxy S but am hesitant to do so because of the battery life. ... moreHey, VCU.
Believe me man, I was feeling the same way you did. I was like, oh, can I last a day? Will i need to carry my charger around??
Well, it's BEST. You can actually survive one and a half day on a single charge. Did abt 10 sms, 4-5mins phone calls, surfing apps store, Mobile internet for 20-30 mins, and some media stuff. It lasts me for one and a half day. So, no worry man...it's best already!
I wonder why I can't get Google Maps in my sgs? I live in Southeast Asia, Cambodia.
I think Google Maps is a built-in apps, right? So, why can't I?
Please really help me out.
P.S: I haven't updated to Froyo yet cuz it's not available.
Great phone, by the way^^
i just got one last friday.. after a day my galaxy s broke.. the display begun to mulfuction the screen cant display the colors correctly.. my money is wasted by this phone.. does samsung build a phone that are really weak and unusable.. i have no more phone now.. i left the phone to shop to cover the warranty.. they are arguing that they cant replace the unit itself.. its not my fault cuz mall hours are over when it happend!!! damn that shop.. expensive phone but weak!!!
This phone is perfect. Its balanced. Its 5 Megapixel Camera suits perfectly to the phone. This is my dream phone. I don't need anymore a phone with overmegapixel like N8 did. N8 users keep on bragging their phone's camera. Well, I don't care. Ill just buy a Nikon Camera if I am really onto photography.
How easy is it to upgrade my SGS to Froyo 2.2 ?
Can someone walk me through it step by step.
Andy, 20 Dec 2010Hi all,
I plan to buy this phone, But I heard about GPS problem. (http://www.engadget.com/2... moreGPS is flawed on euro units, and samsung admitted the flaw on some US units. juzt dont buy, no fone in the market today has more issies than SGS. Mysterious slowdowns and malfunctions become part of life, and all Samsung does is tell you to restore factory settings, again and again.
This is a gek fon, for the specially interested, nerds who love to tweak and root and watever. Just wait till you get issues, some nerds here will tell you to root it and all kinda unsupported fixes. Are you ready to go that far? The onli fixes samsung supports is no fixes, as usual, can you live with that?
For Indian owners...
FROYO upgrade is officially out. I got my Android 2.2
Go for it, it's really nice
[deleted post]Same here , its truly is like a tablet. the video in HD is awewsome. And its FAST.
Best mobile ever. (better than any iphone crap which controls YOU, instead of you controlling IT.)
I have had over 30 phones in 20 years. This one is tops . so far.
Chatty, 19 Dec 2010If we buy new Samsung GT-I9000 Galaxy S in INDIA. FROYO 2.2 will be factory preinstalled. ... moreno it won't be pre-installed. If you buy it from official samsung store, you can ask them to upgrade it on the spot, otherwise you can always use latest version of kies to update it yourself.
