And this phone is power hungry when it has to make a data connection. Anything that will reduce the power is going to be a problem.
USB1.1, thin gage wires in USB cable, muck in port, slack fitting cables, cables that are too long. Laptops that reduce power to the port when running on battery. Towers that have low powered front ports. And there are more…
AnonD-56965, 05 Dec 2012whenever i try connecting it, its just keep connecing and disconnecting. it gets disconnected ... morePoor or bad data connection could mean the port on the phone is still not clean.
Find a way to clean it (rocking the cable in the port has worked for me in the past with older phones) or you could use a usb cable with thicker gage wires.
I use Cbus Wireless flat data cables. I have 3 in different colours. (home, car & office)
But I see that brand is out of stuck. Below is the link to the same type of cable in a different brand, you can use as a reference.
most blackberry cable have high gage wires as well. (stay away from nokia branded cables)
note: the higher the gage of wire the shorter the charge time.
I destroy cables all the time. so the above is from personal experience.
all the Cbus Wireless flat data cables are still working so far.

Sammy flagship Ph are the best choice *****
practically more users friendly in comparison to others.

removeable + strong battery,
HTML + Adobe Flash browser support,
USB OTG etc etc.......

thats a faulty update u have got
so go to recovery menu volume up+menu button+power button all at the same time till samsumng logo appears
with the volume button got to wipe cash then press the power button

if not the download the whole new rom from samfirmware . com and flash through odin v3.0
jb is butter smooth, u will find millions of videos on youtube about how to flash with odin it takes 5 minutes :) but also wipe cash and data before odin to have a clean update
AnonD-56965, 04 Dec 2012but the usb connecting to laptop is still a problem.....its nt getting connectedThere are different levels off not getting connected which one are you?
1. You plug it in and it tries to install plug & play drivers and fails. (you need to download drivers)
2. you plug it in and the lightning comes on the battery but nothing happens on the PC (the USB port on the Laptop is not giving enough power, it may be USB 1.1)
3. You plug it in and thing happens on the PC or the phone. (the cable is bad or the port on the phone is still not clean)
4. You plug it in and drivers are installed and working but you can’t get it connected with kies. (kies is just stupid like that. and if you ever get it working count your self as one of the lucky few.)
