Default Won't connect to PC

Going to smash something soon, probably this phone.
Coming from an Iphone 4. I decided that I'd give Samsung a go.
I've never had to experience such ridiculous crapness with ANY phone in the past.
How can it not connect? I've installed Kies. I've updated everything. Won't connect.
Giving it till tomorrow night and then it's going back and I'm getting the iPhone 5.
What a waste of my patience.
Just keeps saying not recognised and Kies just loads the device foreverx
Will just come up with this forever long. No matter what I do.


What a ridiculous piece of crap

Note sure about Kies. From what I read, everyone said Kies is a piece of #*&$ and you don't really need it. From the screenshot, look like you have Windows XP. I have Windows XP on my work's laptop, and I don't need to install anything. Just plug in the phone, wait until windows found the USB device and it will pop up as a Samsung phone on File Explorer. Just make sure you unlock the screen, or you won't see the files.

I'm sorry you're so frustrated but smashing your phone isn't going to help you at all.
So take a deep breath and tell us what is it that you want to do using Kies?

Many of us don't use it at all; Kies is a nightmare- not the phone.

My app of choice is AirDroid any time I want to connect my phone to laptop.
