    Hi all
    Anybody know how to get Kies working with the galaxy portal
    I got it from Samsung yesterday as its now released for the portal, but it did not work, just like the pc suite that came with the phone

    Cheers

    That's a very recent change that kies supports the Spica/Portal.

    This must mean the official v2.1 is close, as a samsung rep reported on a blog I read that the update will be delivered and installed via Kies.

    Ya! Just installed Kies. Phone got detected fine. Everything working as it should. Phonebook gets synced, media transfer etc. everything ok. Doesn't yet allow f/w upgrade though.

    For all those who are having trouble recognizing their phone from Kies/NPS/adb...

    Unplug your phone from USB and do the following...

    If you are on android 1.5 (cupcake) version:
    -- Go to... Main Menu >> Settings >> About Phone >> Additional Settings >> (here, make sure "Mass storage only" is unchecked. Make it unchecked if it is not.)

    If you are on android 2.1 (eclair) version:
    -- Go to... Main Menu >> Settings >> Applications >> Development >> (here, make sure "USB debugging" is checked. Make it checked if it is not.)

    That's it! Plug-in your phone again and your device should get recognized fine.

    Hope this helps!

    Update:

    -- Just published screenshot and all that at my blog here http://voxigee.wordpress.com/2010/03/07/samsung-kies-for-galaxy-spica/
    -- Tried it with one of v2.1 (Eclair) ROM and working fine, couldn't yet get it to work with v1.5 (cupcake) though.

    I followed the instructions of gurdeep still no luck, kies is not able to detect my device. Getting an infinite message "Connecting to device... please wait"

    Samsung might be good in their hardware but they are utter failure in software, Take PC studio or Kies both does not have even a professional appearance. Seems to be a software developed by interns under the guidance of a first time product manager :)

    Please try switching your usb ports while connecting and also keep scanning for hardware changes from the Device Manager. Sometimes the Serial ports acquired by samsung drivers are not refreshed automatically. Wish u luck :)

    Hey all, Kies is working fine for me as well. Flashed to 2.1 (i570EXXJC3) today and I managed to sync my phone when I enabled USB debugging just like Gurdeep.Singh.Mander said. When I had 1.5 it didn't sync.

    I also get that message, tried switching ports around they are refreshing but no joy. I have left a service request at Samsung.

    No.

    If you're running vista, make sure the drivers have been installed correctly and windows sees the phone correctly.

    If you have NPS loaded, close it
