I can't get stereo on the FM radio. Both left/right channels sound identical with no stereo separation whatsoever. I have found out on this site and after reading other users similar complaints on the XDA-Developers website that this radio is indeed MONO - i'm gobsmacked.
I am astonished how my workmate has stereo fm on his 10 pound phone and i, with my state of the art, life enhancing samsung gadget in my hands only has MONO. This is a big deal for me as i spend an hour each day listening to radio.
I can handle the fact that there is no camera flash as the night mode feature is as good if not better than any single LED flash out there(in mobile phone terms), thanks to its specially tweaked high exposure lens which is a very clever move by Samsung, but i cannot except that the radio is MONO.
Does anyone else have any thoughts on this? Will froyo 2.2 remedy the problem by switching on the stereo as i have read that the technology exists within the phone to allow this but somehow got switched off. Other than this, the phone is absolutely fantastic! Lol
in my NEW galaxy s i can not get gprs or edge support.
i have set the APN correctly and showing network type:EDGE but gprs service:disconnected, is it operator problem?
I have reboot the phone several times anl also tried FLIGHT MODE on/off but no data connection.
thanks in advance

MY QUESTION STILL REMAINS: can this Phone work with AT&T 3G Network?
thank you for your answer, although i was aware of the existance of few Android Phones by AT&T but they are limited in their capabilities... for instance you can only get apps from the Androind market and not from other sources, and truly the reason why i like Android is because you can access an infinite number of applications even made by unknown people.. i would like to have the possibility of deciding weather to try them or not... so this is why i am looking into getting a NON AT&T Phone, unless they decide to unlock the Android and leave access to all it's functions, including Shell.
So at the end, i still don't know if this Samsung i9000 works with AT&T 3G...
Just reading the comments as still undecided on wether to get this phone or not..
One comment states there is no flash support..

I have heard about the Samsung's galaxy 9000 model and I was tempted to buy...except when I have just read from Verizon Wireless in the US-internal document which leaked regarding the “Known Issues” of this model.
It is also said that some of the issues as below will be fixed in the MR 1 release of this device, while some are still being reviewed. WHAT IS THAT? and
DO THE ISSUES BELOW STILL APPLY?
# Bluetooth Issue: When on a call via the phone’s bluetooth and the backlight times out, you will have to first unlock the phone in order to end the call. Also there are issues with car kit connect and car kit contact sync.
# Calendar Issue: No way to change the Calendar alert notification.
# Blank Screen Issue: Answer the second call when already on a call, and the caller ID screen goes blank.
# Backlight Issue: Irrespective of screen timeout settings, backlight on the bottom 4 buttons – menu, home, back, and search, times off after just 5 seconds.
# Email Delete Status Issue: Doesn’t show any status bar when deleting e-mails/messages, so you never know if it’s still going on or has completed.
# Sync Issue: exchange e-mail and yahoo mail stop syncing at times, screen goes dark while syncing and the device displays “unable to open connection to server.”
# Exchange Email Issue: No password option in the Location & Security settings menu, therefore you can’t change the password once Exchange security policy is applied. Also there are Exchange ActiveSync security lock screen invoking and display issues.
# Feeds/Widget Issue: In some cases feeds and widgets get struck and don’t update. User will have to manually request update.
# Wi-Fi Issue: You cannot receive OTA updates with when in Wi-Fi mode.
# GPS Latency Issue: Takes longer then other devices to get GPS location information when using Google and Bing maps.
# Hotspot Issue: connected devices via 3G hotspot aren’t listed, white bar above the touch-keyboard blocks “Save” and “Cancel”, you’ll have to use “Return” soft key instead.
# Messaging Issue: Sending message fails when you do so after receiving VVM notification, no option for message delivery acknowledgement, no option to resend message, and you cannot send V-Cards via messages.
# PDF Issue: PDFs in emails should first be saved in order to be opened.
# Call Issue: If you press the “Search” button when on a call, the call may get disconnected.
# VZ Navigator Issue: Cannot run the VZnavigator application when in Wi-Fi mode.
Your immediate reply would mostly be appreciated

Samsung dominates the market in the chip/components department which means that their products are more reliable than intel and amd's which is why apple has chosen samsung. Apple is not a company who would chose cheaper products over better performing parts. Intel and AMD does not have the mobile chip technology either fool. BTW galaxy s's lag has long been fixed by the automatic task manager which is downloadable in the samsung market so do a little research before you post unreliable bull. thanks :)

But many american phones have foreign made components in them because it is cheaper to get it from korea / japan than to make it or buy it from other american producers such as Intel or AMD. if they did, the price of the iPhone would be even more but it should perform better. Part of the reason for the galaxy's lag is the processor which is why apple had samsung build the processor but gave the specifications themselves hence the name "apple a4 chip" which i think is also patented. Samsung has made another version of apples processor calling it the A8 processor, which is built the way apple wanted them to build the A4, you can see the performance increase by the smoothness of the galaxy pad, it's almost as smooth as iPad from the videos i see.
what do you think about the retina display? You seem to talk about facts in an educated fashion rather than fanboy opinions so i'd like your honest opinion here.
FRANK, 12 Sep 2010This SGS can play any movie files? Does it need to convert before playback?You don't need to convert but I always change the movie size and cut down the filesize for this phone like avatar was 10gb full HD but converted it too h.264 1.2gd amazing picture quality but less pixel count as the size of the phone is allot smaller than my 50" tv
