hello people heres a gps fix .....instant lock
*#*#1472365#*#* gps test
Type this in using the keypad and then find skyhook and turn it on. This will help your GPS locate quicker and stay locked. I can get satellites in my living room!
*do not adjust anything else
The only con I can find of this phone is that it doesn't support all 3G bands available, 850Mhz is missing. In Canada the 850Mhz band is mainly used by Rogers/Fido for 3G, so there is possibly coverage issue whit this phone in Canada.
Too bad, because the specs are amazing for this android phone.
Please don't bye galaxy s, I have it for a week and is out of calibration, I repeat out of calibration, and I can't calibrate. For 600 euro is a rubbish phone...
Anonymous, 13 Jul 2010when i connect my phone with Kies...it says please wait........but i waited for 1 hour but it ... moreSorry , but I have same problem and I tried to rinstall Keis for 5!!! times ( suggestion of Samsung support ) and now way. For people ,ho using this phone not like a gadget is big disappointment and really shame for Samsung . HTC /SE Iphone now problem to connect and a BIG BLA BLA Samsung ???
Similarity to iPhone is gr8 for iPhone users who want a flexibile phone instead of a fussy iPhone without losing iPhone's UI Charm. IPhone users would feel at home with Galaxy S.
video on this phone is awesome..samsung do make excellent tvs you know that is how they are masters at screen excellence..plays my divx hd movies flawless just like on the sammy telly
Anonymous, 12 Jul 2010what a joke, all this hype on this phone when it looks like an iphone in and out. lol and you ... moreI totally agree. I am not an iphone fan, but this phone dissapoints me completely. It looks exactly like the iphone. They seem to be marketing this phone on the iphone pedestal. This is there flagship phone and I don't want to own it for the very reason that someone might say "Is that an I iphone?"
fisio, 11 Jul 2010i DONT like the user interface of this mobile
it is useless...hey Fisio,
nobody wants to hear what u like or not.
your comments are so stupid and useless.
So don't waste your time, go and play with your dolls.
i think this is the first android phone with front and back camera without a flash.
Anonymous, 12 Jul 2010what a joke, all this hype on this phone when it looks like an iphone in and out. lol and you ... moreSamsung and Nokia have been doing the grid layour far before Apple came along mate. And touch screen was available before i-phone too. The I-phone brought everything together that the others hadnt managed but it wasnt ground breaking in itself - only ground breaking in its hype.
- Best Media player on a phone.
- Kies works fine for me
- Call audio is perfect
- Screen size is just right for browsing
- Browser is fast
- Touch screen is equal to I phone on terms of quality
- Display is better than i phone
- 7 home screens which can all be filled with widgets or shortcuts if you like
Basically its similar to the i-phone (Samsung supply most of the parts to the i phone anyway). The i-phone has better apps store. The Galaxy has better media player and is more customizable and can be upgraded more easily. If you want a phone with useful apps, then there is no difference because Android store has all the useful apple apps now. If you want pointless Apps such as an app of sounds of someone kicking a football, then get the i-phone. If you want to upload all your songs to i-tunes from your pc, then download them to your phone, then get the i-phone. If you just want to insert a Micro SD with your music on into your phone, then get Galaxy. If you want good audio, get galaxy. If you want to customise your menu and homescreen, get Galaxy. If you want a decent media players, get Galaxy. The Galaxy is a better phone and cheaper too. The only thing i-phone has over it is brand and the pointless apps that Android havent bothered to release on its store. Galaxy also uses Swype text technology which was recently used in breaking the speed texting world record. Ive used Galaxy and all i-phones and Galaxy is the CLEAR winner when you actually appreciate what it does.
Galaxy s users, please tell me whether the
1 audio and vide playback is good
2 whether its audio is bettter tha nokia 5800
3 whether it can play the games of htc desire?? Please reply anyone....

Do anyone had any idea, if it has 256 MB ram or 512 MB ram, some suggest it has 512 MB ram but due to old kernel it shows 256 mb, no official specification on their website which suggest it has 512 MB ram.
