I love the phone but am very unhappy with the Samsung Kies Application to connect to my PC and backup copy content.
WIFI: After using the PC connection half a dozen times WIFI suddenly became unable to scan networks and turned off. Only a fully factory reset restored this which actually turned out to be very quick.
USB Connector notification: After a month or so whenever I plug in the charger or the PC and then remove it I get an intermittent notification that "USB is Connected" this toggles onto the screen, if I make a call it seems to clear it but then it will come back again.
PHONE FREEZES: Intermittently I try to use the phone and the screen is blank, pressing the menu button or the power button does nothing. Sometimes pressing the power button causes the timer icon to be displayed, sometimes if I keep it pressed until it appears 3 times I can reset the phone and turn it on again but sometimes I cannot. Removing the battery and SIM card replacing and turning it on sometimes gets it back, but bizarrely sometimes have to connect it to the charger to get it back on again even if there is a full battery indicator.
All these errors continued to occur even after 4 full factory resets which is poor.
I have today taken this phone back to the carphone warehouse for repair.
Basically I like the phone, love the camera and the Google application tie in but it appears to be unreliable on the current operating system. The PC application and connection is quite frankly rubbish Samsung should stick to hardware, which I think is excellent, I was very surprised when I read the "plasticky comments" as I don't think it is. It's slim and has a fantastic screen.
I look forward to getting the phone back hopefully repaired and to getting the new Android 2.2 software

Switch off wi-fi if you do not use it, use advanced task killer, and set it in autokill, or kill apps manually after you close them.
