samsamsam, 24 Oct 2012is this true that the android OS is prone to virus and that can invade the contents of your pr... moreYour phone is now a lot like your computer, same rules apply when trying to stave off viruses. Do no installed software from unreliable sources, be careful which websites you visit (naughty is risky ;-)), even if you are downloading from Google play - be sure not to installed apps which require unrelated permissions.
antivirus is like insurance, you but it hoping you'll never have to use it ;-)
Kies says that an update is available...but i am not able to download the update via my phone (OTA). Also when I try to download via kies...it hangs at 15%, What should i do?

I believe Sony has some of its xperia handsets with similar specs now in the same price range.
You people who recived the update, from witch country are you. I have not update at all
Anonymous, 31 Oct 2012Not available anywhere in India. Stocks exhausted everywhere. Not available even with flipkart.There are rumours that Samsung has stopped production of this handset, in favour of S Duos. Can't say for sure.

A good phone nonetheless
trikha, 03 Nov 2012Man in my s advance the firmware version is still DDLI1....and when i go on software update it... moreThey probably do updates in phases. I am in India and have the same firmware version as you, which my phone tells me is the latest.
I am waiting for ICS/Jelly Bean. That will be exciting if and when it arrives.
I have just updated my device's firmware to GINGERBREAD.DDLJ1...took some time ...through KIES, was not available through OTA. The approx update size was 578 MB
I must say the stability has improved a lot since then, no lags at all while scrolling through menus; lists;...phone is more responsive.
The device has to undergo a stable firmware upgrade, just to ensure there are no conflicts while the OS is upgraded. I am sure we all will very soon have the Jelly Bean 4.1...
Is this phone facedout or is this phone upgradable to ics or jelly bean? I am thinking about buying this phone or tab 2 on christmass. Pls help me choose.
When im browsing or like using my phone it just goes black n after 20 seconds it comes back...n reloads everything like network.. weather n stuff...idk.what this is....its kindda annoying..Its happens like once a day..
after the last update the scrolling hz improved. .gud wrk. .lets hope v c jb soon. .
