2. Go to "Settings"
3. Select "About phone"
4. Select "Software update"
5. Select "Check for update"
6. If "No update available" appear means the update is not yet available in your region.
Even via Kies, if update is not available in your region the same notice will appear. So why make things complicated using Kies when you can update directly through your phone?
zo, 27 Oct 2011Dude u dont need to use any screen protector. This screen wont crack.. ( unless u delibrately ... moreAbsolutely wrong about the Gorilla Glass part. Gorilla Glass is Scratch Resistive, not Scratch Proof.
At least 20 threads are there to complain about the screen, how it got scratched quite easily. So a Protective Screen is a must, a good one I mean.
Also ATK is NOT advised in Android. Use Better Battery Stats and see what apps are causing Wakelocks.

About Firmware, you can upgrade to 2.3.5 ROM of other regions, like I am using XXKI3, you could flash it with Odin. Search XDA for more info.
I don't believe India will anymore updates after 2.3.3 KF3, Indian Customer Support of Samsung is shite.

Gps shows approx location. in india its nt accurate i know.
Actually its a good thing that gps works in the background. So even if ur fone us lost or stolen u can track it. i have always have my gps on. An i read this somewhere that android does have tht feature where an app can switch on ur gps. Dont know if its true or not.Why dont u check out an app called 'lost phone' in the mrket. anyways there r plenty of apps avaialble. Plan b is another cool app. its to be installed aftr ur fone is stolen. check ot out.
Advanced task manager does a good job in killing ur apps.
Again there shud be sumthing for hindi sms also. cam is amazing quality man. how much more do u need. N the sound is loud enough.
waltz-lin, 26 Oct 2011hei... can i ask something? how can i upgrde into 2.3.4 version? mine is just 2.3.3.. and then... moreTry it this way:
Go to Settings, About Phone and click on Software update. My friend did it and it worked and got updated the firmware.
itumi, 27 Oct 2011Try AllShare apps, even laptop to laptop it works! Amazing!thanks itimu for ur reply. but i wonder whether i can use this app ,Allshare, to update my android to 2.3.4 or not?(currentlly 2.3.3)if can how? if not what shud i do with my kies, phone and pc to connect them well cos my only intention to connect it is to update it. thanks in advance for any respone!!!!!!!!!!!
samsung could not provide very simple thing in galaxy---its alarm wont work in off mode,it is a grate draw back of galaxy sII
kingdomofwonder, 27 Oct 2011guys when i connect this phone via kies, it keeps connectinggggggggggggg... and nothing happen... moreDid you check the mobile phone for permit to be connected to the PC via USB? My GS2 says "USB connected. Phone connected to computer via USB. Tap the buton below to copy files between computer and Android's USB storage."
Another day another slab..I call it BORING..Every company is just bringing out a screen with volume buttons and an on/off switch and everyone goes Yippee..Its dead easy for maufacturers is this modern smartfone trend ,WHERE IS THE DESIGN TEAM???WHERE ARE THE GADGET SMARTPHONES??? I do hate this modern trend of boring miserable slabs and cannot wait till we revert back to good old button smartfones and Clamshells.
Anonymous, 27 Oct 2011try to install TUBEMATE my friend...there is no app called tubemate in the market, any alternative app to download videos from youtube?
thing i dont like -
-after use (internet ,location ,GPS etc) data connection does not disconnect automatically it continues -consuming battery & bill . if off it does not start automatically if we want to use internet browser
-apps do not have exit / quit options running in background consuming ram & battery
-nearly all pre loaded & android apps need working network
-camera quality not v good
-ext speaker sound quality average
-Cant found hindi support -can it read hindi SMS?
-android i m using is 2.3.3 cant find 2.3.4 in india
should we use screen protector (plastic with laminated /sticker type) to protect screen
location /position via GPS is useless with lots of errors, it will work well in combination with data network like 3G (wifi?)
what is best way/setting to track phone (if stolen / lost)-i think we have to leave GPS/WIFI always open
what are best settings for tracking phone? -
samsung`s registration through gmail?
smai, 26 Oct 2011i am using this phone 3 days ago, it is amazing, the best phone i ever owned.
i have quest... moreYes, you must download Tube Mate from Android Market.
When ever you play a video, an option of download will also appear.
WI-FI direct :O
200mb hd video from 1 galaxy s2 to other in 10 sec :o
who needs bluetooth ver 4,0
iam satisfied with phone ,my experience-
good battery life -as iam habitual of- closing open apps by task manager ,cleaning memory in RAM,closing background apps in setting>applications running services , battery usage (like hubs ,email ,maps & other non useful service for me)
stopping wifi ,GPS,bluetooth if not in use
also by default data network mode is always open consuming battery & package data(mine through 3G)
