Andyr, 17 Jul 2009dont you just wish in the settings u could have an option to remove the slide out widget bar a... morei wish that in the next firmware upgrade, they include some "useful" icons rather than the useless ones like photobucket, flikr n picasa. we hardly use them.
shortcuts to display settings, profile settings and a separate menu for java applications wud've been better.
yes in touchscreen phones it is usual that when we touch the topmost area, a page displaying the signal strength, battery strength, and other useful info to be displayed.
the widget bar should come out only when we touch on the widget tag (the arrow at the bottom). and a touch on any part of the screen should lead to the main menu.
theres one more thing i need to ask... the phone here in the gsmarena..is of samsung star.. here the middle part of the phone is kinda of dark grey .. but mine is silver.

plz reply... thnks
updated mine today to S5230XEIG2 firmware from S5230XXIE7 Firmware. boot files as well I did. PC Studio (version 1.2.0 IF1) recognising my phone perfectly on COM6 in Windows XP Home.Just thought I would let you all know. Andy.
dont you just wish in the settings u could have an option to remove the slide out widget bar altogether and that when you tap on the speaker icon at the top of the screen it would put phone into silent profile or shortcut to the sound profile menu instead of it sliding out the widget bar. its only logical to have it this way but somewhere along the way the manufacturers dont see this. where is the logic in that touching any part of the screen that the widget bar must slide out!
no need to update firmware to get games i've a better way. . .

u can use any external headset. the best ones are creative ep-630 or sennheiser CX-300 or philips noise-cancellation headset (i forgot the model number). check for others on the net.
connect it to the phone using a 3.5 mm jack adapter. buy it from the local mobile accessories store.
Prakash, 16 Jul 2009Hi King,
Can you help i have samsung star i want update firmware i am new to this if there ... moreto be honest, i bricked my phone 3 times, that is, i only got the installation right in my 4th attempt and almost thought that my fone is gone forever.
so u can try multiple number of times till u get it right. so don't worry if u don't get it right the first time. try again!!
another thing, if ur fone is damaged while upgrading to new firmware, all records of the previous OS are erased, or damaged. So samsung centre won't know that u've tried to install a new firmware unless u tell them. so just show some excuse. :-)
nik, 16 Jul 2009hey king, is there any way you can install softwares and games withouth changing the firmwa... morei don't think there's any way to install games without changing the firmware. but if u have a successful installation of new firmware, why worry about warranty.
davneet, 16 Jul 2009thanx buddy.. do u hav any pic attached wth leather cover.."pic" attached with leather cover?? nah no pics. its attached to the plastic back-cover.
Andyr, 16 Jul 2009Hey king when u select MSM6250/MSM6250A the Amss button comes alive and the Apps button dims i... more1.nah. no facility to record phone conversation.
2.yes u r rite. the apps button gets dim and u should select apps_compressed.bin. actually i did not find any "amms" file like amms_compressed.bin in the firmware folder.
no i have'nt seen or used MSM7200A radio button.
3.no previously my fone did not ring for 3-4 seconds and after that ringtone used to start (for any ringtone), so i never heard my friends giving missed calls.
but now the ringtone starts immediately. 1 second at low volume and then it goes to maximum volume. but now i can hear missed calls.
nnn, 16 Jul 2009how can i open jar applications?thanks!yeah u can open .JAR applications. its very easy. just transfer it to the sd card and install. no complicated process, nothing.
is there any way you can install softwares and games withouth changing the firmware??? i don want to void the warranty and so was asking if there was a way?/ please do comment..
can anyone suggest a good headset i can use with my star? and how can i connect it?
thanks a lot
