TC, 03 Aug 2011I do not know if anyone have tried doing that yet, because there is really no point to do so b... moreI'm bored of android, it doesn't really stand out anymore. Just like when symbian was all the rage people wanted out to differentiate, I want out from android.
[deleted post]Nokia WP7-phones will be a historical failiure, Android Froyo is much better os and Ice Cream Sandwich is very much better. Nokia should have used their N9 Harmattan skin on Android and given Nokia Maps to their Android-phones buyers, just like HTC use Sence and Locations exclusively for HTC buyers on Android. Almost everyone want to buy a Nokia-Android but almost nobody want to buy any WP7-phone! Apps on WP7-"store" is more expensive than even the same apps in the already expensive Apple Store.
WP7 startpage looks as if was made for people with some eye-problem.
Samsung will be even more successful now that Nokia did not choose Android and Nokia is not even going to make any more MeeGo-phones after N9. Elop could very well have caused the end of the mobile giant Nokia!
TC, 03 Aug 2011Yes, you can use Nokia USB-on-the-GO cable!Thank you TC.
One more question. Will non-Nokia OTG cable work? They look alike, but nokia cost too much. Is there any qualitative difference? In the socket etc? Fearing the socket might be damaged, i didn't force it in. is it OK?
Hi all, I have this phone and am loving it. It is very popular here in London, UK. Anyway for those who have updated their software to 2.3.4, please tell me the main differences/advantages of this. How can I update to this with numerous downloads or zipping files? I wish this was officially available OTA (over the air - via WIFI) or by plugging the SG2 into the PC. This was the only plus my Iphone4 had over this phone. Samsung have to make updates similiar to those of Nokia and the iphone. That aside, this phone is a beast and the best at present. Also I would advise people to install an Anti virus. I got AVG anti virus free from the Android market.

I would like to know if i can connect pendrive/flashdrive, card reader etc, using nokia's USB on the GO (OTG) cable? Here in my place samsung's USB OTG adapter is not availble yet. Is there any alternative? Please help.
Meego, 03 Aug 2011Can I install meego 1.2 on this?I do not know if anyone have tried doing that yet, because there is really no point to do so because Android is more than good enough, and S2 will be updated to Android "Ice Cream Sandwich"!
allen1977, 03 Aug 2011samsung S 2 battery life is really bad..... any software will make it better???
btw i... moreBatterylife on S2 is really good, not many laptop-computers have better batterylife when watching hd-movies and surfing on the Internet and watching Adobe Flash 10 movies and playing games and... If you use S2 only in the same way you would use a boring Symbian-phone from Nokia then you will get even better batterylife than that Symbian!
Updating to 2.3.4 will improve batterylife a lot, and see my earlier comment on how to update to 2.3.4.
Note: Internal storage is divided into 'device memory' and 'usb storage'. Device memory is only 2 GB and apps which cant be moved can only reside in device memory.
Phone manufacturers should really specify this. I was looking for a phone with lots of memory for apps, and was very dissapointed about this!

I recently had my HTC Desire HD stolen and unfortunately the HTC Sensation was not yet available in South Africa, and decided to replace the HTC with Samsung S2.
Although only having the phone for a week I must say I am extremely disappointed with my experience thus far and regret not waiting for the HTC Sensation.
I am experiencing a number of problems with the S2:
1. Using the phone keypad to access Contacts as shortcut for dialling, the phone defaults to the landline contact number, and not the mobile number. I therefore have to access my address book and search for my contacts cell number, which is really slow as I have 4,500 contacts and you can't contact somebody quickly on their mobile. HELP
2. My S2 won't connect with my BMW Handsfree
3. The phone gets really hot
4. BUT MOST IMPORTANT the battery life sucks ........with limited useage and switching my mail to hourly as opposed to Push, I can't get through a day, without the battery dieing by 6 or 7pm and only using the phone for calls, the odd sms etc. and not even using the internet or surfing as this I do on my laptop in my office
IS THERE A SOFTWARE UPGRADE FROM 2.3.3 OR PATCH THAT WILL SOLVE THESE ISSUES???

Can any one... moresorry brother,to hear about it.Iam not sure u vl get it back or not,but u can prevent others from using it.If u had installed anti virus and anti theft software on the phone,u must have known how to recover ur phone.Otherwise call the customer care of the sim which was in the phone at the time of theft and report the whole incident ask them to block the phone permanently!
No other way.
