How To Get Samsung Apps Through Kies On To Galaxy S Phone ?


Can anyone tell me how to get samsung apps through kies on to my galaxy s phone in australia. When i try to, kies says that google's terms and condition do not allow it. Why would there be a stamp on the back of my galaxy s phone stating "google", when as far as i understand kies was made for samsung. Is there any way to download these samsung apps advertised on kies, into my galaxy s gt19000 phone? Any help or information would greatly be appreciated as i do not know much about phones ect.

Samsung Galaxy S - Tethering Without Kies

Has anyone used their galaxy s as a tethered modem without installing kies?

According to the manual, you can just set the phone's usb settings to "pc internet" then plug it into the computer. Supposedly after that you just follow "on screen instructions" to install the phone as a modem (presumably the add new hardware wizard).

Has this worked for anyone? I tried it on two computers and the hardware wizard failed. Does anyone know where to download the necessary drivers?

Apparently installing kies installs the drivers needed, so you can then tether the phone without running kies. The problem is that kies requires an internet connection to install, so even if you carry around a kies install on the phone, you end up in a catch-22.

All of this was done on xp pro sp3. I have an international i9000 with zsjf7 baseband.

I've tried different usb ports, different usb cables, nothing. Any suggestions?

Kies / Usb Mode Issue - Samsung Galaxy S2

Basically for the last month or so when i try to connect my sgs2 to the computer to use kies i get the message. "Unsupported connection mode alert reconnect the device in samsung kies (pc studio) mode. Current connection mode not supported by kies. "

I wouldn't really care as kies is rubbish in my opinion, and it is a lot easier and better to use the phone as a mass storage device, but i have been waiting patiently for the official ics update and now it is finally landing i am unable to update without kies. I have checked the usb debugging is not enabled, i have tried all solutions i can find (turn usb debugging on connect and let load drivers, unplug and turn usb debugging back off and try again), (uninstall and reinstall kies), etc etc. There are a lot of things i have tried but nothing is working. Also i assume it is something to do with it, but i know i used to have 2 or 3 options when i go to settingswireless & networksusb utilities. But now there is only one, "usb mass storage".

Some Of Photos Do Not Load / Sync Using Kies - Samsung Galaxy S2

So i bought a samsung galaxy s2 off ebay and i have been using it for about 4 days. I have put 6gb of music on the internal memory and i have tried putting a couple 700mb videos and 7gb of photos on to a 32gb micro sd card but only about 20 of the photos load and one of the videos loads and plays fine but i can't skip it along and the other says unsupported file extension even though both are avi. The pictures are gif, jpg and png a few of each load. I am using kies to sync the photos and running 2. 3. 5

I also another thing the phone was originally t mobile but was unlocked and i have a orange sim. Do you have to root the phone to unlock it? And could this be causing the issues. Also the sd card was cheap 14 for a class 10 32gb. But the videos do the same on the internal memory, i haven't tried the photos.

Samsung Galaxy S - Download An English Copy Of Kies - Set Region To Taiwan

I have a quick question about kies. Since the froyo update will be coming through it, i need to install it on my pc (win 7, 32 bit). I live in taiwan, but i don't speak chinese. When i go to the samsung mobile website, it asks me to select my country. The link for taiwan renders the website only in chinese characters (for obvious reasons). I'm hesitant to download it from the taiwanese website because i'm worried it'll be in chinese, and i'm hesitant to pick an english-speaking country as it may affect the region settings.

How do i download an english copy of kies and set the region to taiwan?

Phone Closes All Apps That Were Open, When Screen Goes To Sleep - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I just noticed that when the screen goes to sleep the phone closes all apps that were open. For example, i was playing angry birds and stopped to talk to someone. After 30 seconds or whatever the screen went to sleep and when i woke it i was back at my home screen. When i went back to the app it had to start from scratch. It does this all of the time, now that i am paying attention. Is this normal? I assume a battery saving thing?

What Apps Do I Install On My New Samsung Galaxy Nexus ?

I already got help here with my first post, so here goes number 2. I ordered a new unlocked gangland nexus. It is replacing my iphone 4. I found out i had to swap out the sim card and i should be up and running. Ok, what do i do next? This is my first droid phone. I have read how to export my contacts to gmail and that will transfer them over to my new phone. I don't want my calender entries, i hope i can do that directly form outlook.

So what do i install? I know the standards apps, but what else should i do to my phone. Root it? I already know that i have to make sure that it has something with a bunch of letters in it to make sure i get updates. Is there a tutorial or a great post that someone can steer me too.

Do Not Upgrade Via Samsung Kies

After having a chat with a member of staff at a local carphone warehouse store, whilst returning my samsung galaxy s to have a manual upgrade, the staff member told us that samsung are having huge issues with samsung kies. He went on to say that, even if samsung kies does work, all it does is pile the firmeware versions on top of each other. It does not replace them. He said he would not recommend upgrading via samsung kies until samsung fix the piece of software. Alternatively, if you take it into a official samsung help centre branch of carphone warehouse they'd be happy to manually upgrade it for free. This is what i've done. They've taken my phone away from approx 3 days to do a manual upgrade.

How Do I Restore Stock Apps On Samsung Galaxy Ace?

I've got gt-s5830 phone running 2. 3. 3. So far the phone is working perfect. I was messing around the other and deleted some stock apps by error. I used ti backup for this. I would like to restore a couple of them back, so i used the restore function in ti backup, but for some reason it did not work. Did not give any errors, just rebooted without the app being restored.

Anyway, i believe i have 2 options.

1). Flash 2. 3. 3 which i found - droidangel. Blogspot.com/2011/05/samsung-galaxy-ace-s5830-original-stock.html

2) upgrade to 2. 3. 5 which is also located at the above page. But i am not sure what 2. 3. 5 would be best to use. I'm in the uk, using a vf contract with a unlocked phone.

I have no issues on flashing, but i don't want to flash using the wrong rom and messing it all up.

Non Market Apps Install Problem On Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I am new galaxy nexus user though i am not new to the android os as i using an acer e130 android 2. 1. Now, my dad bought this unit in saudi arabia, and i have received it hours ago here in the philippines. Immediately after i got the unit, i downloaded some non-market apps and tried to transfer these to my unit via usb. At first, a message popped out in the screen, didn't mind it and then clicked 'transfer anyway'. Transfer success. I then disconnected the usb from the unit and opened settings > storage > misc. I tried clicking the files but nothing happens. I had also clicked the 'allow non-market apps to be installed', but still can't install it!

Did anyone experience this?

My galaxy nexus is an android 4. 0. 2.

Installing Apps, Games Files Into External Sd Card On Samsung Galaxy S2

I have a samsung galaxy s2 i9100g, along with sony xperia neo and htc desire z. After searching extensively throughout the internet and androidforums.com, i needed to post this thread.

On my xperia neo, which has no "internal storage" unlike the sgs2, apps/games can install completely on its "external sd storage". The same is applied to the desire z.

On the sgs2 however, the app/game is present on the "internal sd storage". (11gb out of 16gb). It only move 1% in reality to the "external sd" that too into the secandroid folder.

What i want to ask is that apps such as "sygic", "gta 3", "asphalt", "nova" etc have considerable size of files and while the sgs2 has 11gb available they install into the "internal sd" but in xperia neo, which has about 200mb of "internal phone memory" and no "internal sd storage", these apps/games install their bulk files into the "external sd storage" which is shown as "sd storage".

Please help me and tell me how i can makes these apps/games install their files into the "external sd card". Since "asphalt 6" is about 900mb and on sgs2 it is on the 11gb "internal sd" while on the xperia it is on the "external sd" which is mounted as the "sd card". I am waiting for your helpful replies and advises.

Cannot Install, Update Apps Or Clear Cache Data - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Can't install, uninstall or update any apps either through google play on phone or through internet. When trying on my phone, the screen gets stuck at the blue progress line ("installing", "uninstalling", etc. ) And never completes. Back button doesn't leave the screen, but the home button and recent apps button will get me out, and i can go back to the settings>apps screen and try again.

Can't clear cache or data for any apps from the settings>apps. All apps say "computing. " For storage and cache info and never change. In settings>apps>running a number of games (small street, contract killer, stardom, e. Warriors, etc. ) Auto-start and keep coming back after i force close or reboot.

Here's what i've done so far to try to fix it. Reboot, shut down, battery pull. Force close every suspicious app. Certain apps keep coming back. Tried to clear cache of google play store app, but it doesn't seem to clear. Also, clear data, uninstall update never completed. Read more at the forum.
