Since then I can connect fine. Although, still every time I connect to Kies, I still have to switch my phone off and back on before it will connect.
Kies is the worst phone software I've ever used.
Having tried all the above options, turning on and then turning off USB debugging, I have had absolutely no luck connecting to Kies. I live away from home at the mo without lappy or wifi, so I only get a once-every-three-week chance to try to connect. Three weeks ago, I COULD connect, but the ICS upgrade wasn't available.
Now, three weeks later, my phone won't even bloody connect
I have little experience of samsung software, but right now it's looking damn useless.
Just about to turn my phone back on then try again......
