I have tried to post an opinion, but for some reason, it was not displayed, so, I will try again! I am from South Africa and want to warn prospective users to STAY AWAY from this phone/KIES combination! Our IT dept. struggled for nearly two days to get CONNECTED via KIES and we set up every combination (different laptops, different brands and even desktops), yet, no luck to sync my contacts and calender AT ALL.
My DELL at home, managed, after the 3rd time, to sync, but not all was not done 100%. Thereafter, it also gave up with KIES...!!!
I phoned our SAMSUNG Help Center just to be told that they are aware that there IS A PROBLEM with KIES and that they can do NOTHING for me!!! How can the Q&A Dept of the mighty SAMSUNG release such a disaster to the good paying customers out there, without testing it properly first???
I was looking forward to this handset for such a long time after the hype, only to have it resting in its original packaging waiting for maybe one day...!

VladUK, 14 May 2012Since I updated my SGSII to ICS 4.0.3 I have to say I regret doing that, first of all they sai... moreTry doing this....
1. For battery getting hot. Possibility that Battery is not fitted properly. Even a hair thin space can create a problem. Remove battery and put it back again and then charge. This might work.
2. Programs running at the back. Check for Virus. As all phones run on softwares and there is possibility of Virus.

Since I updated my SGSII to ICS 4.0.3 I have to say I regret doing that, first of all they said it will improve the battery life but sadly it's getting worse! I can barely make 2 days of use even though everything is switched off, just using it for texting and phone calls, before 4 days no trouble at all ) Also device has become more RAM hungry and so many applications runs for no reason at all. Also I have noticed whenever I charge the battery back of the phone is getting hot which never happened when it was running Gingerbread 2.3.4. Somehow screen become less responsive too. Anyone else got the same troubles or it's only me unlucky with ICS 4.0.3?
can i know if 'Samsung Galaxy
Skyrocket T989' can use custom ROM from 'Samsung Galaxy S2 at&t' or 'Samsung Galaxy S2 I9100' ROM ? Kindly reply your answer at my email : email@example.com. Thanks for answering... :)
This is the best phone I had. It's super fast, stable. It has Android and all the best games I need.
