    This is Muthamizh from chennai. i bought samsung i5510 from Univercell velacery. i feel in this mobile the battery backup is very low. since it is going to low level battery using 15 minutes gprs.

    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
    IN the RAM menu ,clear level 1 and level 2 memory
    And hey presto ,the apps reappear in the app menu"

    I bought my galaxy 551 last month and facing issues.. need help..

    1) Battery backup is very low... when google apps are used...
    2) Not able to move some of the apps to SD
    3) When I restart the phone.. SD card content is not visible untill Iclear the RAM..

    Seems like lot of bugs that Samsung have to fix...

    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.:D

    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

    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

    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 .

    find solution to free space in phone memory
    hiw to uninstall completely in phone becoz some part of apps still remain in phone memory whether i use sd card memory or phone memory

    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.
