Meanwhile the T959D is Telus' 3G+ version, and the T959P is Telus' 4G S1. With that said, I used my T959P on Rogers without an issue. The T959D version uses the same bands.
Thus my confusion, but knowing one Telus SGS works is comforting.

Now if only I could be certain the port issue is one of hardware. Managed to get the phone to connect to my computer and updated it via Kies (I know) to 2.3.3.

It'll only charge on certain cables. It'll reliably charge when plugged into my computer, but not when plugged into a wall charger, even when it's the same cable. Levering the connector at the phone can momentarily persuade it to start charging off the wall. Fiddling with the cable when it's plugged into the computer will also sometimes cause it to lose connection, but the connection is overall much more reliable.

Figure I'll try cleaning the USB port with a coffee filter, isopropyl alcohol and a twist tie, hope it's just the current owner has let it get grimy.

Default it works fine but.....

Thanks alot JD. my phones running ics perfectly. the only thing is that i still have a bunch of apps in my sd card, or rather built in storage that are just lying there(mainly for apps installed from places besides the play store). Is there a way i can use those? Also can i delete the apps in my app drawer like rom manager, super user and terminal emulator.

thanks alot

You'll need the APK to re-install them.

ROM Manager, Super User (for root access), and Terminal Emulator are all "system" apps and cannot be easily removed. They don't really take up much space either, so I wouldn't worry about it. If you don't want to see them, install something like Apex Launcher as it allows you to hide apps.

OK great. Also can you tell me what the gapps pics file was for. I think it was for pics apps but I already saw some installed before I went through that phase. And what if I downloaded a different file besides the one you mentioned which (seemed to be the latest) because it seems like im missing some basic apps that should have come with ics.

gapps mainly gives you Talk and Play Store, the rest you'll have to install from the Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...id=Google+Inc.

Kies will not work anymore since it's no longer using Samsung firmware. USB in general should be fine though for copying files between the phone and your PC.
