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.

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?

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.

Running windows 7 64 bit. Soon as i connect my phone debug turned off of course. I select kies on the phone
It starts flashing mtp applicaition over and over the screens just opening and closing this window.

Anyway To Make Tethering Connection More Stable

I am using easytether via usb, but my connection often get drops. =( When i do an ipconfig, i still see my ip and my gateway and both i can ping with replies but yet i just cannot surf the internet. Is there something i should do to make the connection more stable?

Can it also be because i used "adb -d forward tcp:2511 tcp:2511" for my easysms that is causing the unstable in usb? Like if the usb cannot handle more than one app? But when i disable this forwarder too, the connection is just as bad. Or should i try another tethering app?

Setup Tethering & Portable Hotspot - Lg Optimus V

I was actually surprised to find out that alot of people are having problems with there tethering. I've had the optimus v for over a year and not a single problem with it. There are more tutorials around here than i can shake a stick at, so i'll just keep it simple and tell you my setup:


2. 3. 7 gingerbread

Clockworkmod recovery v3. 2. 0. 1

Cyanogenmod-7. 1. 0-backside-iho-kang

I don't have a hotspot app. In this version, it's actually built into the settings menu: settings>wireless & networks>tethering & portable hotspot. It allows for usb tethering and portable wi-fi hotspot under infrastructure and allows you to name and secure your hotspot with wpa2 psk encryption. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Firmware Upgrade Problem With Kies 2

Had my galaxy s for a week now and have decided to upgrade to android 2. 2 now rather than later. But kies 2 would not let me set proxy settings. So i connected to the internet directly using a 3g modem. Now kies 2 says "no sim card inserted. Unable to continue communication. " Getting to the point, finally kies recognizes that it's time for a firmware upgrade and when i tell it to go ahead it crashes on me. I tried running the "gt-i9000.exe" program directly as well as compatibility mode for xp sp2 (i use win 7) but same problem. It's now been hours to do a simple upgrade. What's wrong with kies? Anybody got suggestions? If feels so backwards, should i reconnect my pc from the 1990's?

2. No samsung app store is installed with the phone. Is there any way to do this? I want to install the asphalt 5 game.

Texting With Samsung Galaxy S

I am fairly computer literate also been using candy-bar type phones for many years. I received my nice new galaxy s just yesterday and one thing has me completely stumped. I wanted to send a text to a non-address book or non "contact" recipient, here's my question.

How can a recipient's number be manually entered into the "to" field in the galaxy s? I have tried everything with it, also contacted my network tech support and samsung and no one can tell me how to do it. Got to say this is a major drawback.
