Ics - Roaming Indication On Home Network - Samsung Galaxy S2


Recently upgraded my galaxy s2 to ics using a guide at cnet.co.uk. All appears to work fine apart from one thing - sat at home, my signal indicator shows that i am roaming and a warning notification reports "you have lost data connectivity because you left your home network with data roaming turned off". To clarify, i'm at home, a three network customer and never saw the roaming indicator at anytime before in the uk. I also have data roaming turned off for the usual obvious reasons. Has anyone encountered this and does anyone have any ideas how i can remedy this situation?

Gt-i9100p Wont Update To Ics - Samsung Galaxy S2

I decided to make an account here as my provider (o2) has proved unsuccessful in helping solve this issue, hope you guys are smarter than they are! For some reason when running kies software my phone will not update to ics, it claims the latest firmware is already installed (i current have gingerbread 2. 3. 5). Ive been on live chat with o2, i told them my csc number and they told me my phone can update to ics so i dont know why it wont do it. Ive got the latest kies software and have tried it on both my pc and laptop but it just wont work. Has this happened to anyone else and is there a solution?

Samsung Galaxy S2 International - Updating Sgs Ii To Ics

Im from sri lanka. I have the international model - gt-i9000. Im now on the 2. 3. 5 firmware version and my build number is gingerbread. Xxki4, and it is rooted. Some days back my phone asked me to update it to the new firm. I just canceled it, now i need to update it to the ics via kies and is it the standard way ? And can i know the pros and cons of ics. Is it necessary to update the phone to ics? If im updating via kies do i need to backup everything? Or just update it without doing anything to my files or contacts? Will it be the same after the new update?

Ics Upgrade On Unlocked Orange France Samsung Galaxy S2

I think i've worked out that rooting is not what i am after, and i think i have determined that my phone is unlocked but not unbranded, but i'm still short of understanding what i need to do to upgrade my gs2 to ics 4. 0.

1. Unlocked: i have an orange france gt-i9100, for which i purchased a plan. After three months i was allowed, via a tool on their website, to unlock it so that i can put my (non-french) sim in it. This works fine.

2. Unbranded: the phone came with a bunch of orange. Fr applications and widgets on it, which i would generally prefer not to have and just have native android (or samsung's own additions) if possible.

I'm not sure in this instance, where i should expect to get an upgrade from - samsung, orange, or? I have downloaded and installed kies with the idea that this might identify availability of an upgrade for me. It has found an available update.

About phone:
Gt-i9100
Android 2. 3. 3
Baseband i9100bvkg2
Kernel 2. 6. 35. 7-i9100bvkg2-cltest_i9100bvkg2 root@dell127#2
Build number gingerbread. Bvkg2
Finally, using check for updates on the about phone menu says none are available.

Signal Improves After Upgraded To Ics - Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket

Well our house hold has two skyrockets. One just updated to the leaked ics and one on gingerbread. And lemme tell you, i have been doing some testing and i have noticed two major improvements. Number one, my signal on the ics is double sometimes than on gingerbread! And the battery is also slightly better. I put the phones side by side, right on the couch and watched the signal meter for like fifteen minutes and the phone running ics was always way better signal, very interesting.

1 Text Message To Read Notification - Ics Issue - Samsung Galaxy S2

Just moved over from the easy life of blackberry to android (not even been a week yet) and all was going well till i upgraded to ics. I have a gt-l9100 running 4. 0. 3 the issue is, i receive a new text message, i read and reply to it yet i still see '1' in a circle over the message icon at the bottom of the screen. I went in to the messaging section in applications and cleared the cache and that just created more issues (all sms failed to send from then on), i rebooted the device and the icon was gone and i was able to send sms again. I did try to search for a solution, but with no luck.

Access Gmail & Exchange Folders - Ics Social Hub - Samsung Galaxy S2

Ok ics is installed and seems to be (generally) running well. Some of the new features i like about the ics social hub like deleting messages from the list screen without having numerous button presses. Other things like it always opens in feeds and i can't access my folders in my accounts really suck!

As i use gmail and exchange mail and want push all from one app i am stuck using the hub, so no other apps won't do the same within one app. Anyone managed to get the hub to open on messages rather than feeds? More importantly, anyone know how on earth i can access my gmail folders and my exchange folders?

Samsung Galaxy S Plus Gt I9001 Network Issue

I have the galaxy s gti 9001 with telfort a dutch provider, when i popped over to the uk i had a full signal strength (all bars up) yet when i tried to phone or sms i got told i didn't have permission to use the network. I had to manually set it to orange then it worked, when i got back to nl the same problem again until i manually set it back to kpn (used by telfort).

I used the same sim card in my wildfire and never had this problem. Question is how to i setup the gt1 9001 to auto connect to a valid network when ever i go to different countries? I have it on roaming data etc.

Orange T-mobile Default Network - Samsung Galaxy S2

I've got a newly purchased samsung galaxy s2 on an orange contract. The network defaults to "orange", as you'd expect, but i've manually changed that to "orange t-mobile" as it makes a big difference in coverage on my journey to work.

When i power-cycled the phone, it reverted back to "orange" on startup. I don't plan to power cycle very often, but just wondered if there was a way of setting a preferred network on the handset instead of having to manually change every time the phone starts? On my old nokia e72, once i'd set to "orange t-mobile" the first time, it stuck even through many power cycles (crappy thing kept losing data connectivity until reset!).

Does Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket Work On T-mobile 3g / 4g Network ?

I just got a new samsung galaxy s2 skyrocket as a gift, it is unlocked and i'm currently using it on the tmobile network. The problem is that i can't access the 3g or the 4g and it's just using the edge for data access. Which is sad for such a powerful phone. I read around and find out that this phone does not support the tmobile band 1700/2100. Is that true? And if so, is there a way to change the software or hardware of the phone so i can receive and send on these frequencies? If not, i'll just sell it and buy a phone compatible with tmobile stupid network frequency.

Mobile Network Signal Bar In Battery Stats - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Has anyone been able to figure out what the different colors in the mobile network signal bar in battery stats detail mean? (The one that shows the large chart of your battery draining over time and has mobile network signal, gps, screen, and awake usage bars under it). I see dark green, light yellow, dark yellow, and red on mine. Based on my usage the last 5 hours our so i'm guessing the following:

Red = no signal
Dark green = 4g
Light yellow = 3g
Dark yellow = no idea, maybe 1g?

Does anyone else have any additional colors, or idea what these mean? I'm just taking guesses here.

Cannot Disable " Data Background Services " After Upgrade To Ics - Samsung Galaxy S2

Since upgrading to ics (ice cream sandwich) with my galaxy s2, one of the changes is you can no longer disable "data background services". When i bought my phone a couple of months ago i was told in the o2 shop to disable data background services to enhance the battery life. I did this and the battery lasted really well as i only enabled the service when i needed to. This facility has now gone and i am finding my battery life really quite poor.

I don't use the mobile network for internet as have wifi at home and work so my phone is connected to that. I notice it must be doing things in the background as i get alerts for facebook, twitter etc so i presume it is working hard in the background and that is what using the battery. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how i can improve the battery life. It is really annoying that this has gone with the upgrade as it certainly made a big difference.

Cannot Remove Home Screens On Samsung Galaxy S2

My old galaxy s2 on orange uk was perfect, i could delete unused home screens and i customized it exactly how i wanted it. However today i had to have my phone replaced under warranty as the touch screen became unresponsive in places. The phone they have sent me obv has different software on it because i don't like it and i cant customize it!

My first problem is that i never had on my old phone was i now have 5 home screens and a orange scroll bar across the bottom. I don't use widgets or any of that crap, i use 1 home screen with 4 icons on and everything else is organized in folders in the app screen. However i cant remove them. If i hold them down all i get is a "add to homescren" window with the following listed:

Orange widgets
Orange shortcuts
Android widgets
Android shortcuts
Folders
Wallpapers

If i press the menu button on said screens, i get

All programs
Add to homescreen
Wallpaper
Search
Notifications
Settings

By default it also opens straight to the 3rd (middle) screen of the 5. I have no trash bin to drag them down to like my previous phone. Somebody please help me and tell me how to get rid of them?

Samsung Galaxy S (vibrant) Home Key Issue

It was too good to be true. A perfectly working phone. So i started having the issue where the home key doesn't register alot of times, and apparently its a known issue over the net. Many people are having this same issue where the home key doesn't work properly. Every other key is perfect, but the home key doesn't listen. I wonder if samsung will recall it, or could this be fixed with a firmware update? Or is it hardware? That's why i should have bought from t-mobile so i dont have to deal with wirefly.
