    I come from using HTC TouchPro WindowsMobile.
    I got the Galaxy S on the second day of its launch and have been using it for over 2 months.. While the phone itself is great (except the email client - more on it separately) there's tons of issues with Kies:

    - why does it need Bluetooth to be switched off? (I use a BT handsfree which becomes useless when I connect the phone to PC in office for charge & sync)
    - why does it need WiFi to be off - It does not use the PCs network connection and the 3G signal is weak/expensive
    - why cant Kies delete SMS/MMS off the phone. It just allows reading.
    - why cant we send SMS from the PC screen through Kies
    - why does Kies have so much junk in it - music/video player, disc burner, photo editor,disc ripping, etc..
    - why doesnt Kies automatically sync to Outlook on connecting the phone.
    - why isnt there an email inbox sync
    - for me, Kies does not give me the option of connecting on bluetooth

    We need a simple and functional PC sync software for the phone.
    I had been using Pocket Controller Pro for WindowsMobile (and Nokia PC Suite). Samsung need to learn from these and completely re-do Kies.

    Would appreciate if anyone can post any workarounds for these issues.
    Thanks.

    I think Samsung have tried to make a complete program for every thing but have failed and should have stuck to a simple program not one that's full of things no is going to use

    During installation, you could have chosen to not install all those junk apps. You can also disable them in settings.
