"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.
