i really didnt thought of that..:)

anyhow i am facing one problem updating my phone..
i have downloaded the files but when the update starts, an error pops up low disk space ( minimum 3000mb required)
i have 4 gb free in the drive where kies is installed so any guesses why this problem is coming

Danveer, 17 Apr 2011if swype is not working, try to install it from the android mark... moreFrom the market it is not available.If you try to do it through the Swype installer aplication (by registering in swypeinc.com) ,it will not update as there is already a Swype application exists which is of prebuilt binary.
So finally have to root it through the superoneclick aplication,remount the /system directory ,remove the existing swype.apk and run the swype installer application--- Boom!!!!

I really love this phone, however I have a few issues with it... The battery life is dreadful and it's always connected to 3G even when I turn all Internet connections off, this is Probably draining the battery... It used to show me my balance after every text message and now it doesn't... The camera quality is awful... My old phOne had a 2 megapixel camera and was great, this phone is supposed tO have a 3 megapixel camera and to be blunt it looks like a 0.3 megapixel camera if that even exists... Apart from that it's a good phone, the app store is good, the text conversation layout is good :) and I would recommend it but the issues I have pointed out are very disappointing because I do not have time to charge my phone every evening...

NBS, 14 Apr 2011I was able to upgrade to Froyo successfully but seems like the p... moreSo Finally had to go to the Samsung Service Center to get it re-imaged. All the data was lost and had to pay Rs 110 for Software Updates. All the issues sorted out except that Swype is not working. The Service Center manager has said that he will get back to me with the solution by mid of next week.

Observations after the upgrade:
1) Galaxy 3 runs faster
2) GPS is getting locked without GPS Optimizer app.

Exploring more.

Note: Probably if you take directly to the service center for the upgrade it would be free of cost, they charged me because probably the upgrade didn't happen properly through Kies.
