Amit, 23 Jan 2012hi friends, can any one tell me is it must to update the recent update of software only throug... moreBy your name you are Indian, so replying on that basis.
No, OTA update is not supported for India, along with many other countries. So Kies update is the only way to upgrade the phone.
Of course Kies comes in play if you don't know about Odin ;)
I bought this Samsung Galaxy S II. Overall it is a good mobile but due to carrying Andriod 2.3.3, it has 2 major limitations:
1) For its proper functioning, it requires to have a gmail account. Once I gave it gmail credentials, my device got open for everybody to check my emails. Anbody ask for my set to call somebody; may have access to all private data on it. How hard was this for them to password protect the mail inbox?
2) I have an IMAP account configured through the built in "Mail" program. First of all, when I send messages from this program, it copies them to a local "Sent" folder, and there is no way to specify a remote IMAP folder for this (e.g. "INBOX.Sent"). So then, I try to move messages manually between the local "Sent" and the IMAP "INBOX.Sent" folder, and it appears to work fine, but when I check from another IMAP client (e.g. Thunderbird or MS Outlook on my PC etc.), I don't see those messages in "INBOX.Sent".
I think if these limitations are addressed, it would be the best handset for a businessman especially due to its wide screen and light weight.
hi friends, can any one tell me is it must to update the recent update of software only through kies or we can also do it from 'check update' option available in settings options of our phone...
Navin, 23 Jan 2012Thanks Dear ! Would do that as the last option.. Anymore input on the following issue .. ... moreAndroid 2.3.6 update is available in Indian region. Update your mobile using the official Kies software. It might get solved through this update.

if you are tired of your current S2 theme, you can download 'go launcher' from the andriod market, whats cool abt this is that you can still customize the new themes to be the way you got it out of the box... if you feel that the change is to drastic for you just click on the middle button on your phone and select TWLauncher and it should revert to its out of the box settings!!!
AnonD-6966, 22 Jan 2012Thnx bt s2 has a very short battery life pls tell me hw can i improve my battery life...pls heloAs well as bettery is concerned of S2, As per my experience Go Launcher EX Pro is a way better to have good bettery. Just always close open apps with a single touch on apps manu.With moderate use i am spending more than 2 days. I think that poor battery life should not be a problem of smart phones, we have laptops in offices, home etc where we can charge with usb, Orgionbal 2000 mah bettery is also available... So battery is no issue.....
I bought it 2 months ago; fantastic and amusing kit I must admit, however, camera is really a frustration. Battery is not superb as well. Honestly I expected more for the 650 UDS I paid.
Just got my hands on the S2, the sales staff at the Samsung gallery were quite helpful in allowing me to use wi-fi and also to make some essential downloads.. Awesome phone to say the least. Awesome!
My heart is broken..WiFi on my SGS2 failed. Had to replace mainboard.
Anonymous, 20 Jan 2012If nothing else helps , i m sure factory reset will help u. but take ur backup before u do thatThanks Dear ! Would do that as the last option..
Anymore input on the following issue ..
Bought my S2 in Oct. Everything is fine except the bugging Voice Command app.
When ever I press home key (middle one) the Samsung Disclaimer comes up rather than going to Home Screen as desired. Looks like this app had hijacked main function of Home Key :-)
I have Forced Stop and cleared data many a times. But on home key press it pops up time and again, which is quite bugging.
Also it being default app, i cant uninstall it.
Help me to get off with this Voice Command... atleast clear it off from my home key's main function.

I always do Nandroid backup, which is via CWM recovery. You'll need to be rooted for that however.
