Samsung Galaxy S :: Galaxy S I9000 Inbuilt Tether Application?

Sep 12, 2010

I've just got my new Samsung Galaxy S I9000 phone which looks awesome. I had been using a Nokia N97 Mini which had behaved OK and I've been using Joikuspot as a WIFI tether which is important because of my need for the internet during the day. I was really please to find that the Galaxy has an inbuilt tether application in the Mobile AP however I cannot get it to work and wondered if any one else had any issues? The Mobile AP kicks in ok and I can find it on my laptop however when I try to connect it just tells me that it cannot connect and goes into trying to diagnose the problem. I tried to bypass this by inputting the wireless connection manually but when I do it tells me the security option is wrong but does this for every option in the list.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Epic 4G Vs Galaxy S I9000?

Oct 1, 2010

Which is better out of the 2 and why? Both have key differences and some may or may not like the depending on what differences they prefer. Main differences I can think of are these:
- Galaxy s is thinner while the Epic has the Qwerty slider
- Epic has a flash for the camera and Wimax connectivity
- Software wise, the Epic is missing a lot of features of touch wiz. There are more differences like design of the phones, theirf networks, etc. But I don't have time to list them all right now.

Samsung Galaxy S :: GT-i9000 At&t Service Disconnects Often

Oct 30, 2010

I recently bought an unlocked international version of samsung galaxy S GT-i9000. I was able to use it with at&t sim card quite happily till now. Even the 3g worked on it. But from yesterday the at&t service keeps disconnecting after using for few hours. The network bars at the top right disappear and a blue disconnected sign appears. I cannot make a call or receive a call till I reboot my phone. In settings->about phone I see that the "Service" shows "Not in Service". When I reboot it gets back to "In Service". My unlocked phone boots with T-mobile preset settings - is this problem because of that?

Samsung Galaxy S :: I9000 - Internal SD Card Not Mounting

Aug 23, 2010

I was trying to install the latest Froyo update on my new galaxy i9000 and ran into problems. The update was JP3. First the phone kept on flashing i.e. screen off and on. and then i had to reboot the phone and same problem. I tried to flash it again with odin but this time I got an error message:

Update Media please wait
E:Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 (or /dev/block/mmcblk0) (No such file or directory) E:copy_dbdata_media:Can't mount SDCARD:"

Your storage not prepared yet, please use UI menu for format and reboot actions
copy default media content failed.

When I boot it moves past the Galaxy I9000m screen shows me the galaxy screen with animation and sound, the screen then goes of leaving me with a black screen and the buttons lit.

Now, no matter what I do I kept on getting this message. I have a feeling that somehow it messed up the internal sd card of my device.

Is there a way I could repartition my card (if that would solve it) and then reinstall a froyo 2.2 update.

Android :: SQLite Is Extremely Slow In Samsung Galaxy GT-I9000

Aug 17, 2010

I am having problem with performance of SQLite database in Android application in Samsung Galaxy GT-I9000 device. The database contains 10 tables with 3 - 8 columns each.

As soon as a database file gains about 400 KB update/instert queries need much more time to execute - 2 seconds! In comparision to other devices (HTC Magic, HTC Desire) update/insert queries take about 40 msec !

The database file is located in application data directory. Moving database file to sd card increases the speed significantly.

Periodic ANALYZE and VACUUM commands do not affect the speed. As well as PRAGMA cache_size command.

Do you have any ideas how to improve the performance? for keeping the database in sd card or splitting the database into many files containing one table each.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Samsung Galaxy S On Ebay And It Won't Update

Nov 20, 2010

My phone was advertised on ebay as being simlocked to T mobile. However I quickly discovered it wasn't when my Orange Sim worked in it and no T mobile apps or logos appeared on my phone. I already have a Samsung Glaxaxy from Orange so instantly knew that my new phone from ebay was not up to date.As you can see one of my phones is running the latest firmware but the other one isn't AND also says it cannot be updated. What is going on? Has the seller messed with my phone or something?I am not interested in getting Froyo on either of my phones. I will get that when it is officially released. All I want is the ebay phone to be able to be updated. I have tried everything suggested on this forum including changing the product code. I tried to change it on the phone, no product codes were listed as a choice, I also changed the registry but nothing works. Have I got a dud phone because surely my T Mobile phone (which somehow allows an orange sim to work) can get JM3 update by now?

Samsung Galaxy S :: Recording Failed - Only In HD And Only When Storing On Phone?

Oct 12, 2010

My galaxy s has recently given me a "warning recording failed" message about a minute or so into recording a video.

Strange thing is that it only happens when recording in HD resoution, and only when the phone is selected as the storage type. It works fine if the SD card is selected, or in any other resolution!

So Im just curious as to what could be causing this? Would it be a result of full memory? Or anythin to do with the lag fix I installed?

Samsung Galaxy S :: Warning Camera Failed - Hardware Issue

Sep 2, 2010

I've had my Samsung Galaxy S for a couple of weeks now, and the last time i took pictures with it was on 29th August. I tried the camera yesterday and got this message.

What happens is the camera app opens, and instantly displays this message and all you can do is click ok. When you do that, the app closes.

I tried many things, including trying to press other buttons quickly before the error message comes. I managed to switch to camcorder mode and even press the record button in that time, but all i got was video recording failed message.

I checked on the forums for people who had similar problems and here's a list of things i tried so far:

1- Uninstall Fring
2- Return to Factory Settings
3- Fully Recharge Phone
4- Take out battery, sim, external sd card, wait for 5 mins and restart
5- Take out external sd card altogether and restart

So far nothing has worked. I haven't dropped or hit the phone anywhere. It hasn't been in temperatures less than 10 degrees celcius or over 25.

I can't think of anything else to do really, other than calling up warranty line. The problem is i'm going on holiday soon and the only reason i wanted to get this phone before my previous contract ended was to be able to use the camera while on holiday and now all my plans have gone down the drain.

I even tried reinstalling fring and making a test call with it, and i can confirm my front facing camera is working fine. It's the one on the back that's not working.

I tried installing other applications as well which would use the phone's camera and every each of them force closed when i tried.

I can't send it off with warranty until i come back from holiday anyway, so maybe froyo would be rolled out by my provider by then... I wonder if that would fix things... But i thought returning to factory settings would have fixed it too, which it didn't...

I just flashed froyo (I9000xxjpm, 2.6.32.9) on my vibrant which is from Bell in Canada. Everything works fine but when I try to reboot into the recovery using Rom Manager, it reboots and tries to install an update.zip file and then it fails with a message of "signature verification failed". I can't install any other update.zip file either. I'd like to have the clockwork recovery back.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Samsung Galaxy-S Phone Number Incorrectly Shown In System Info

Nov 5, 2010

When connecting my Galaxy-S to the Samsung Kies software, my telephone shows up with an incorrect telephone number. I did change the sim-card (and subsequent number) since first using it, but I never logged intio Kies with the old sim-card.The phone is rooted.How do I get Kies (or my Samsung phone) to show my current telephone number?In the phone properties (Menu, Settings, About, Status) the same wrong number is shown.When calling, the receiver sees the correct telephone number. So the issue is not operator related but telephone related.

Samsung Galaxy I7500 :: ROM Enable Root Failed - Stuck In Startup Loop

Oct 31, 2009

I have rooted my phone and have now the recovery mode from HD blog. It's was working fine. So I tried to get the Galaxhero ROM installed. I did the following steps:

1) Reboot in recovery mode (Volume down + both Call buttons) and choose "Nandroid backup" to save a backup of your current ROM just in case.
2) Backup G apps
3) Then, choose "Wipe data/factory reset". The phone will reboot in recovery mode again.
4) Choose "Apply sdcard:update.zip" (second menu entry on the recovery screen)
5) Restore Google applications ("Restore G.Apps")
6) "Enable root (su)".

But then enable root failed! Anyway I went on further with reboot system. It rebooted till the "android HD logo" showed up and then suddenly the screen went off and it seemed like my phone went off. So I went back to the recovery mode and did the following steps:
Wipe data
Restore backup
Restore G apps
Enable root SU, but again enable su failed!!

Again I choose reboot system, and when the reboot came again to the "android HD logo". It stuck there and stayed looping.
First, why do I still see the android HD logo again because I did a wipe!
Second, How can I get my phone working again!

Samsung Galaxy S :: Samsung Galaxy S - Android - Managing Google Contacts

Sep 5, 2010

I have configured my Samsung Galaxy S using my normal Gmail account. This has helped me to sync the Google Contacts with my phone.

Following are my questions:

1. Right now I have about a thousand google contacts synced to my phone. I want to remove them at one go. I know how to disable them from being appearing in contact list, but I want to know if I can delete them without going to factory settings.

2. I am using three applications (a) Gmail (b) Contacts (3) MVOIP. I want to know if there is a way that following combination works:
a- Google contacts appear on Gmail app
b- Google contacts (with phone numbers) and normal phone contacts appear on "Contacts"
c- Google contacts (with phone numbers) and normal phone contacts appear on "MVOIP application".

I know how to do

(a) - By synchronising google contacts,
(b) - by choosing display options
(c) - I do not know how to handle this and I want help.

Android :: Samsung Galaxy Spica Or Samsung Galaxy I7500

Jul 12, 2010

I was originally going to get either the HTC Hero or Motorola Droid but found out they are both CMDA. and the Milestone is out of my budget. People have been suggesting to get the Samsung Galaxy S, that's also out of my budget and looks too much like an iPhone. So i stumbled upon these two phones.I'm leaning more towards the Spica because it has superior battery life, and 800mhz compared to the 528mhz the i7500 has. and it can also play DivX.What's making it a difficult decision is the i7500 has an AMOLED Screen. It can display 16,777,216 Colors while the Spica can only display 65,536 Colors I'm not too sure if that will make a difference. Also it has 5mp w/LED Flash while Spica is only 3.2.One phone has a little of both. This will be my first Android phone I'm coming from a Sony Ericsson W995.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Intermittent Wifi On Samsung Galaxy S Captivate

Nov 10, 2010

I have recently picked up a Samsung Galaxy S Captivate (Android 2.1) on Rogers Wireless. I've been having an issue with the wifi on it, it only works intermittently when I'm at home. It will connect to my network without issues, but none of the data-enabled apps can access anything, they just time out. While this is happening my old iPhone (recent android convert) and my Nintendo Wii are able to connect flawlessly. This ONLY happens when I'm at home on my own network from what I've seen, when I'm on the wifi at my work everything works fine. Has anyone seen issues like this or have any suggestions as to what may be causing it? FYI I have tried different wifi channels, currently my router is setup to use TKIP on WPA2 for encryption.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Samsung Galaxy S On Tmobile 3g - Work

I would hate it if I have to stick with using EDGE on it. Also I did a little snooping around and it seems like the galaxy S will be coming to the US later this year...on all 4 major carriers? So is it correct to assume that the phone will work on Tmobile 3g or are they going to sell different carrier exclusive models so that it will work on each individual network?

However, is says that 'this device's version cannot be updated'

My SGS was bought from Mobiles.co.uk and is using an Orange SIM and as far as I can tell it is not locked or branded.

The current firmware is

PDA ...XXJF3
Phone ...XXJF3
CSC ...XAJF3

Is this an 'Orange' CSC?
