this phone is too expensive....it's made o cheap plastic...i've used one a coupple of days and i'm dissapointed...the screen does not worth 600 euros. Google Nexus,iphone 4 or htc desire are much better, even the old Htc HD2 it's more solid than this chinese crap.
Everyone is saying froyo is available through kies in uk but i fully reset my phone to get kies to work and all the update was was a firmware update no froyo that peed me off.

TC, 02 Sep 2010Galaxy S has not only "my" connection problem with Kies, read below. Kies suck!Do not forget the gps on Galaxy S that is the worst ever on a phone, and the Stereo FM-radio is only MONO.
"AN UNKNOWN NUMBER of Samsung Galaxy S handsets could be reset back to their factory settings just by connecting them to a computer, the manufacturer has warned.
Samsung discovered that in limited circumstances connecting a Samsung Galaxy S device to a PC via Samsung's proprietary software program, Kies, can cause an auto-reset of the device.
"This only occurs if the Galaxy S device contains a file name extension longer than 16 characters," said a Samsung spokesperson. "The issue will be remedied immediately when the file is removed."
Samsung also said that it is working to provide a software upgrade that should be available before the end of August.
Executives at Apple HQ will no doubt smile when they hear that the Galaxy S is having problems, given that Samsung had been plastering adverts all over town mocking the Iphone 4's reception problems.
Ironically, wholesale data deletion on a Galaxy S handset is likely to cause users far more aggravation than dropped calls on the Iphone 4."
Anup, 02 Sep 2010U r using which OS???If u r using win7 or win xp it work(both 32 bit)........If u r using 64 b... moreI am not alone with this problem, use Google and you will find how big the problem really is. I use Win7 and I have dowmloaded and installed all the correct 64 drivers.
This should not be a problem for anyone if Samsung had been doing their job properly.
What case, cover, protective thing would you recommend? I went to a store and they did not have anything suitable.
I like the phone and the features but the battery life is brutal. I've already had it replaced once and I haven't ever gotten more then 16 hours on it with standby and really no use. I drop 10 to 15% just checking email for just over a minute. I did a few full charges just after I got the battery replaced just to ensure maximum charge. It is better then the 8 hours I was getting when I first got the phone. This is with minimal brightness on. 30 second timeout and emal checking on Auto Push. Can't say I would recommend the phone. It's really cool as long as you can use it and not charge it every evening.
Stefak, 01 Sep 2010Hi guys. I just bought my I9000 and I'm wondering which programme I have to download so as to ... moreTry to use Google Talk with fring app from market.That's the best solution I could find. I tried without succes to install skype on android. I suppose that you cannot install it because they want for the moment to use their Google apps.

When something is really good let us tell its better than iphone,i think iphone should be compared with galaxy,just because its made by apple blindly u cannot say apple is best,just take a look at near by store u will appreciate it is better than iphone.
