I've just updated to 2.3.6 from a samsung service centre yesterday and I found out just now that when I have exceeded 3 160 characters in one text due to a very long text I made and it turns out back then on 2.3.3 the format is still text message even I'm already at 5 160 characters but now when I reach 4 160 chracters it changes to MMS format. How is that so? Because back then on 2.3.3 I haven't experienced this. Is it a bug, if it is can I fix it back to normal or do I need to go back to a samsung service centre to sort this out. Please do help me. Thanks!
I want to know, samsung galexy2 can get skype video call.pls advice me

Mohan, 06 Feb 2012Dear Friends, am mohan from Chennai, am using s2, soft versn in my mob is 2.3.3, no updates av... morewell im from hyderabad and i upgraded my s2 some one month ago through kies.or else u can get it done at a samsung service centre if your phone is under warranty.
That phone is a joke !!
Ever tried recording video in a loud place, like a concert or a disco ? The sound is terrible, really awfull.
GS2 records audio only in mono at 60 Kb/s, when most other phones use stereo at 128 Kb/s...
Same for all other Galaxy phones, audio is very bad.
I used to use Galaxy SI and I was extremly happy with the performance, I recently upgraded to SII and believe me its more than words, amazing phone just waiting for the icecream sandwitch update.
The last couple of days I've had my phone suddenly telling me that car mode is activated. It comes up with a disclaimer from Samsung, which I manage to get out of, then it comes up saying it can't connect by Kies . Then it has a notification about car mode being activated and I manage to de-activate that. I also find that when I make a call, or a call comes in my loudspeaker is automatically switched on.
While all this is going on, if I'm not near my phone and notice it and go through all these things to try and stop the processes, it quickly depletes my battery.
I've tried turning it off and on again, and have even removed the battery, but it's still happening.
When I go into task manager it says there's no processes running.
lately after i open any application it hangs and tells me to force stop the app. whatever was the app. the defaults or any others.
if i leave it for a minute or two without touching it the launcher itself hangs and i have to restart it all over again .
I don't know what info you need, but it's a Galaxy S2, model GT-I9100, Android version 2.3.5
better to choose samsung galxy s2 then iphone 4s when it comes with a permomance and speed s2 is the best coz it has adobe flash player and android OS and lot more, better than ip4s...
tox, 06 Feb 2012does this phone last more than a year i hate replacing phones often ? alot of people say it do... moreMy S2 never freeze, and I have never needed to pull the battery, but on my Nokia N97 mini I needed to pull the battery atleast once every week because it frooze so often! :)

john, 06 Feb 2012Galaxy S II is better
better screen/1gb RAM/1.2Ghz dualcore cpu and i think android better th... moreIncorrect.
The iPhone 4s has better screen and also a much more powerful GPU.
Lower RAM, but Android is not very optimal towards RAM. Wish they would improve here as WP and iOS. HW is getting better, but that's no excuse for not optimising the Android source code.
Android is more open and gives you more options than iOS, though for most people the app selection, phone size, clarity of screen etc. iPhone trumps over SII.
However, even though 4s is new. It's still feels like an old phone cause apart from the screen and GPU-power for newer games, not much is new there. Tim Cook and co. really need to come up with a new design for the iphone 5. Both phsyically and for the bording and ugly GUI. People are getting tired and want something new.
Nokia and HTC (primarely) has lovely WP7 phones, and Motorola, HTC and LG have great Androids!
Huawei, Sony, ZTE and Sams. have good Android phones.
Much to choose from. Should be something out there for everyone :)
redmalaysia , 06 Feb 2012I use gs2 for. 6 months . I froze all the time .
good : its fast ; thin ; beautiful screen... moreALL THE TIME? Oh, really? Too bad for you!... You're one of the unlucky ones!
But I doubt it! Better tell the truth and don't lie... Because a lot of people were using Galaxy s2 and greatly satisfied with it, including me..!
