    For those who have trouble connecting their Kies to their PC. Here's a piece of advice.

    1. Uninstall old version of Kies using Revo uninstaller and remove all associated files.

    2. Download and install new Kies (Dec 2 as of this post).

    3. Launch Kies

    4. Connect device to a fast USB socket (normally at the back of the cpu casing)

    5. Download and apply update

    If connection is lost, close Kies and restart your pc. Repeat steps 3-5. It really takes a lot of patience to pull it off.

    tried 5x still no good. do you have a firmware for DXKK4 multiple package? I think it's much easier to update using ODIN.

    I don't know about the multiple package. I got mine from Kies. I remembered, it took me two retries for the first update. Then the same process for the hotfix.

    I'm quite positive the problem lies in Kies. When I didn't uninstall the old version, i got a BSOD after downloading and applying the update.

    have you guys tried updating your firmware to KL2?

    im trying to update mine but cant continue because when its already in the process of updating it, it will suddenly stop and and error will appear saying that "firmware upgrade has stopped working"

    i have reinstalled kies twice but still always the same result

    My Samsung Galaxy Y will *sometimes* not receive calls when the screen is locked.

    Full signal etc, but the person trying to call gets the message that I am "unavailable".

    My firmware is version 2.3.6 which was suggested as a fix for the problem, so it's just buggy as the previous version.

    This is the most basic use of a phone, and I would suggest that anyone thinking of buying a Samsung avoids them, because this is a really serious issue.
