Hey I'm Raj from the Philippines.

I think we're the only two with a 551. LOL

Nothing wrong so far. Just a few apps problem and battery wanting to quit on me from time to time.

What about you?

Yeah battery backup not so good one thing i found to have longer battery is to keep the phone charged for longer time inspite of it showing charged, keep it for some 1 hr more, it will give good backup and dont use gps, gprs unless required. rest all fine rooted with z4root, internal memory too low ;( and not all apps move to SD card ,

Default SMS problem

I already sent mine back :-(
I found it be be a great little phone with really excellent features, but in the UK it has developed the same problem as the Galaxy 550 where text messages from o2 are repeated many many times. I phoned Samsung, they say they are aware of the problem, but new firmware isn't expected soon. Shame.

I bought a Galaxy i5510 last Tuesday and everything was working including the wifi.

I installed the Samsung Kies software and it told me that I have to upgrade my phone's firmware.

After the upgrade, my wifi was no longer working. Please help.

I am Karan from Mumbai
The 551 fails to be recognized in KIES 1.5 or 2.0
The USB storage can be accesed,phone memory cant be accesed .
But when i switch off USB debug mode, and select KIES in phone
the USB debug gets activated and KIES doesn't recognize it.
The Samsung USB Android driver fails to install on Windows 7
Phone is fine ,touchscreen is awesome ,PC support is worse than pathetic

Red face Sound Problem

Hi, I just found a new problem on my galaxy 551. When I connect my cell to any external speaker, either through Aux cable or directly to a speaker, sound comes only from the right speaker. I tried on various speaker systems and same problem occurred in all of them. But there is no such problem in the earphones, I am getting proper sound in both sides. Also there is no such setting in the cell phone to adjust right/left balance. So please help me with a solution!

I brought 551 10 days back ...
Sad, But having same problem with WIFI ...... many people seams to have this problem. I think it is related with the WIFI protocol suit of FROYO. I was trying something but i fear that i will loos my firmware. Can any1 know how to take backup of ROM or any ROM backup that is available on net from which i can recover my original ROM settings?


I am soft. engg. working in J2ME, from what i studied, i think i can change the protocol suit and try to fix the wifi problem, but to do that I need ROM backup as if anything went wrong i must recover to original stage ....

can any1 suggest something........ ??

Unhappy

Every time I reboot the device, the apps disappear for a while, and show after about a minute. This time, they're not showing at all. Not on the home screens or in the app menu. the task manager and app manager show that they are installed, and i can launch them off the android market. most of the apps were on the sd card. i moved them back to phone memory, and they're still not showing. Pls help?

I have bought my Galaxy 551 5 days ago and till now I have found mainly one problem. The impossibly short battery life. It doesn't even last for a day of moderate use. And once I saw it stopped working during standby and there were two displays in the same display. One reset corrected that problem. Angry Birds is not always smooth in this phone. Thats all I can say till now.

What do you consider moderate use? Wifi and games drain my battery in under 24 hours but it lasts 2-3 days if wifi, bluetooth and gps are turned off and i dont play any games. (note: I rarely call/get called, battery life includes sending/receiving 10ish text messages a day)

Alternatively; if you have an SD card create a folder called "Ringtones" on the SD card and any mp3 you place in there shows up in the ringtone selection list.

Additionally; creating a folder called "Notifications" on the SD card will cause all mp3's is this folder to show up in the SMS/Email sound selection list.

Well yours is actual minimal usage.,Moderate usage include 6-8 call averaging 4 minutes,60-100 minutes of music,mild usage of wifi and GPRS ,some GPS thrown in,a round or two of angry birds or some game,.It barely lasts 16 hours .
Btw thanks for showing the second method.

Doesnt OCLF need 1.5 GB internal memory to work ?I dont know anything about OCLF.What exactly you want to do ,install apps on SD card or bump up your phone speed.You can move part of apps to SD using application settings .Basically App2SD and SDMove do the same thing.
Basically samsung has 173 MB internal memory.
Just dont hog apps and the memory will be sufficient.
You can try super one click to root and app2SD to move it to SD

If the problem is after a phone restart then like my post above
"Open the task manager

And hey presto ,the apps reappear in the app menu"

Yeah battery is very pathetic.Switch off 3G,wifi ,bluetooth ,GPS if not needed.
Set brightness to lower side.Switch off gmail/FB/twitter while you are asleep ,or when battery is low.Use lower screen timeouts.Thats the basic thing i guess.

Android phones don't have themes actually.They have launchers and you can customize launchers.It's a personal choice rather.I would say go for home++,Its beautiful and customizable.ADW ,sense ,helix,launcher pro,panda home are also ok-ish to nice.ADW has many themes though .There are many other launchers to choose from including the gingerbread launcher.Knock yourself out searching in market place.

Some applications werent made to install in SD card .There is a script which actually makes it default to install applications in SD card but then they dont work properly or at all .So you have to manually shift the applications in internal memory.
About the third problem ,it's not samsung only issue .It's actually a Froyo issue ,so i have read .hope they solved it in gingerbread and i hope samsung decides to give A gingerbread update to 551.

Hi, bought my partner a german i5510, we're in NZ

Took a while to get WiFi to work but reserving a DHCP IP for the phone and resetting the phone fixed this and it now works perfectly.

The default email program just doesn't work at all with her imap and exchange accounts. It will connect to the server but return and say incorrect username or password. Put K9 on it and the IMAP account works but the exchange server is 2010 which K9 won't work with so put on improved email which the exchange account works with but not the IMAP account...very frustrating

Also cannot get her MMS to work. Internet APN works fine but MMS doesn't, also very frustrating.

I bought myself a HTC desire Z at the same time, we both like having qwerty sliders, not a single issue with my phone.

Hoping they roll out 2.2.1 soon to see if it fixes her problems.

As for battery life, change the sync scheduling from push to something a little less intensive like 5 or 10 mins, this helps, she gets just over 2 days use from her phone.

Hi Guys,
I am from Chennai basically and presently holidaying in the USA.
My 551 hangs up after receiving a call. I got by set replaced prior to leaving India for the same issue. But the problem persists.
I am forced to remove the battery and restart every time times it hangs up. Any idea why this happens?
Regards and love
Shankar

Hello, I'm from Argentina. And byt your description of the problem I think I suffer from the same bug. I too got my phone replaced by the operator but the new one has the same problem. Sometimes after receiving a call the phone just won't unlock and only way to reset is removing the battery. I thought it was a problem with the operator's modified ROM but seeing you havea similar (or the same?) problem I'm guessing it affects all versions of the phone. Mine is GT-I5510L. I hope someone has already found a solution for this problem. I'll ask for a new phone tomorrow but I don't have much hope it will solve the problem

Seems like lot of bugs that Samsung have to fix...
1. you charge your phone continue after it shows charged it's give good backup.
wifi, gps use when you needed bcoz it consume more battery

2. i face this problem and have no solution .

3. wait 5 min and again clear the ram 100 % it shows all your icon
and one way to fix thix permanantly that is u install launcher pro in your device

Use sms app like Handcent sms /free message to back up message in sd card.Delete the sms from phone memory then.No solution for low memory space. Some applications cant be stored in SD card .

Maybe you arent getting the point.Apps dont work from SD at all.They run from a special space in SD card,
You cannot transfer a app completely from internal memory.
Why you ask ,simple ,FAT is Prehistoric system.
So either uninstall apps ,make a custom kernel or buy a new phone.
Period.
