My System Specs

Looks like I'll be getting a Galaxy S tomorrow. Anything I need to worry about? I hear that the Galaxy S has some hardware/software issues such as turning itself off, etc.?

How about the warranty? The guy says he got it from a HUP so I should have warranty correct? He'll be giving me the receipt but I'll need to get the phone unlocked. The phone is BNIB btw.

I dunno about warranty but I have try shutting the phone off and etc. No issue on this side here. The biggest thing to worry about is not to break the back since it's not in metal but it can be replaced with a 5$ extra back. For software, hm...No big deal here, only few little but that should be fix soon or with android 2.2 froyo so nothing to worry about. Good choice I really enjoy mine!

I haven't had any of those issues with my phone at all, great choice to pick

Larkstarr, read about the GPS issue, it's because the factory setting are a bit week, it can be corrected in few minuts if you understand english a bit and know how to use google.

Lol Samsung Kies does suck... a lot!

Look around XDA and HoFo. There's a couple people saying how it freezes on them, or it just shuts itself off. Some can't even turn it back on!

Hm, I take a look and with few people saying that, I am most likely to say they install something that crap the OS or the phone is just defective. But well, as we told you, Never add this issue here and I installed a LOT of software on it.

Compare to the Iphone 4 antenna issue or black berry storm 2 lock up issue the GPS Issue is not that bad.
