Question

Camera Flash & Battery Life

Why didn't Samsung include flash for the camera and increase the battery life - they're the two things that frustrate me since purchasing the phone.

Samsung didn't include a flash for the camera on the I9000 because in the setting you can alter the light yourself. And the battery life is sufficient for me, but it does depend on what programs you use and how much. To make the battery life longer try adding "Power Control" from the Android widgets and turning off things you aren't using and add "Program Monitor" from Samsung widgets and closing active applications you aren't using.

Question

How can I transfer my text messages to my laptop for storage?

I think I can get an app to send one at a time by e-mail, but I want to transfer them all on to the laptop. This was easy with my N95 but the Samsung Kies thing has no mention of e-mails,only music and pictures. Fine, but I want to move my text messages as well. Is there a way? This is my only problem with and criticism of this great phone.

Hi Neil, Unfortunately Samsung Kies does not have a SMS backup feature and this is just a limitation of the software.

Using a Windows PC, I connected via USB lead & just copied using Windows Explorer.

I have also copied to an SD card and connected that to an SD card reader on my PC. This second option will work with a Mac etc.

Hi there.

With the technology the screen uses, you must make direct contact with your finger-a stylus will not work.

Question

Where can I get the original Samsung gingerbread 2.3.3 software for the Galaxy S?

Need to put my phone back to its original configuration and want to know where I can find the original Android software that came with the phone since upgrading to 2.3.5/2.3.6 gives me the com.android.phone error every so often. This renders the phone dead and then recovers, but it's getting annoying now and I don't think it used to do this on 2.3.3. Many thanks.

We are sorry to hear of the problems you are having with this device. All firmware released via our Samsung KIES software is fully tested and should not cause issues like this. We would recommend you perform a factory data reset on the device, which will hopefully resolve the issue. Please back up all data and do the following: Applications - Settings - Privacy - Factory Data Reset. If this fails one of our service centres will be able to re-flash an older firmware version, just visit them with your receipt and ID. Details of your nearest service centre can be found here: http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/location/supportServiceLocation.do?page=SERVICE.LOCATION Please note a charge may apply if the device is out of warranty.

We are unsure what this symbol would be, it is most probably associated with one of your installed programs. We would suggest searching online for "Android icons" to see if you can find the symbol and its meaning.

It is not possible to store all this information on the SIM, only contact information and messages can be stored there. You can however back this data up for use in another Android device by doing the following: Contacts - Menu - Import/Export - Import to SD card or SIM card. Messages can be moved by long pressing on the message and selecting "Copy to SIM" .Pictures can then be moved to your SD card by copying them over via the Myfiles folder in the Applications menu.
