gs2 fan, 30 Nov 2011in uk the only update allows me is 2.3.4,
so how did you get 2.3.5?
thanks for your other ... morewell, if u r still in 2.3.4, then its very unfortunate, i think most of the users are already on 2.3.5, to get 2.3.5, first of all, check if you are locked to any network, not all networks give updates regualrly even though samsung releases it to the users, so it depends on the network you are locked to, if your sgs2 is unlocked, then try KIES (which I u probably have), next step - carefully check where you got the actual phone from, all phones IMEI no.s would be registered from a country where they are meant to be used (for eg. mine is an unlocked phone from Ireland, I got it shipped from Ireland where it was orginally locked to vodafone, but I have got it unlocked now), still unable to get 2.3.5 even after following the above steps, then try rooting and getting 2.3.5, follow the steps very very (i repeat) VERY carefully before starting the rooting process, you can easily get your phone bricked if you are new and do not follow the steps carefully, follow below links, read as much as u can before you feel confidnet about the whole process. the saying is
finally, the whole process is very adventerous and chances are that after rooting your official KIES may not recognize your phone, but thats not an issue as long as XDA website is available, anything is possible with XDA in hand and ODIN software pack!!

AnonD-10882, 30 Nov 2011you mean i should empty the pre charged battery and then charge it for 12 hrs or i should just... moreHi mate,
thanks for the feedbacks regarding the ICS, seems some good improvement, with face detections, I am always worried, what happens if your front camera get damaged? you can never get to the phone! so i leave that option
as regarding your battery use for the first time, I used mine right down to 10% (almost empty) then as said charged 10 hours, and this cycle repeated 3 times. I turned my phone off during the first 3 cycle of charging.
on moderate-heavy use, you will get nearly 36 hours, if you also follow some of the tips suggested here, like lowering your displaying, turn off background data sync, etc.
overal on heavy use you will get 12 hours, so don't get too surprise by that, that is what everyone gets, and what everyone reported.
make sure you do that initial 3 cycle of charging, it would help the battry, also if from time to times you turn off your unit and back on again, its like rebooting (once a week)
good luck and enjoy this beauty, you will not put it down for at least 3 months!
come back here and share your experience please

AnonD-10882, 30 Nov 2011I just bought this phone can anyone tell me how long should i charge it for the first time..is... moreregarding the pattery life, please just spend few minutes and read the past two days posts here, there were loads of excellent suggestions, so no point repeating.
I would suggest for the first time, use the battery right till its flat, then turn it off leave it charge for at least 10-12 hour, repeat this cycle 3 times!
with new battery perhaps its best not to charge it while palying games etc, just give it few days, then its as robust as iron!
you will enjoy this phone, it will change your life!
apple fan boys don't even know about speaktoit, when I talked to them about it , they were so impressed, as at the moment sirri can't recognize british accent, also there is no UK location added, so its a total mess, while speaktoit do all of that, and does it perfectly!
love this phone, its just amaizing!
I just bought this phone can anyone tell me how long should i charge it for the first time..is it ok if i leave the phone to charge the whole night..and is it ok if i charge the phone while playing games since i am a hard user(2hours gaming and 2hours web browsing) i heard i will get only 5 hours is it true if not please tell me how long should i get..
Since i am new to android i will be happy if anyone gives me tips on how to improve the battery life
furri, 30 Nov 2011can anyonw tell me please answer me if you all are proud gs2 owners :P can i use sky or video... moreYes you can install skype and enjoy video calls for sure, but maybe you can just use the rear camera for the video calls just check on that.
My SG SII doesn't have Music Hub. At home screen there is My files instead of Music hub in the last line. What is wrong with it? I've reset it twice to factory setting.
sbr, 30 Nov 2011Can anyone help, does SGSII capturing video with video light? and when opened 3-4 application ... morehi... with regard to taking video with video light, yes it captures with video light. all you have to do is to switch on the flash on the left side of the screen when in video mode and once you start recording, you will see the light as well. with regard to your other question of memory, never experienced it. cheerio!
