    I connected my Samsung i5700 Spica to the PC after installation of the Samsung Studio that came on the CD with the phone, and the phone didn't get detected at first. THEN, I googled (from the 'google' phone of course :p) and found out that one needs to switch on Debug mode in settings. I did so, and now the device shows on the Samsung Studio, but says ONLY DEVICE UPDATE SUPPORTED.
    I am confused! Have tried this on Windows 7 AS well as Windows XP SP2.

    Please help! Need to sync my contacts with Outlook. Can't seem to connect the phone anyhow! :confused:

    think i'm right in saying that samsung's pc suite is broken.

    easiest way to sync is to export your outlook contacts into googlemail, then sync your phone with google via the data synchronization page in the settings.

    Yes you are right. It doesn't support Android/i5700 phones at all. Only the drivers it installs are usable.

    Hello to all you Galaxy Spica owners:
    I have been struggling with connecting my newly acquired Spica to my laptop, unsuccessfully. :(:(:(
    Then I spent sometime with a person named Shisham and he helped me solve the problem - which Samsung (which I think should be changed to ShamShung).

    You need the new "New PC Studio 1.4.0.IL1" version to connect the Spica to XP/Vista. This is the one available with the newly released Corby.

    Download at Software & Manuals Support - Samsung Mobile
    Download the one with release date Dec. 22, 2009, file size - 122.3MB

    Good luck.

    :) Vee :)

    It has to be NPS version 1.4.0.IL1, make sure uninstall all previous versions and restart before installing the 1.4 version - it worked for me both on XP and Vista.
    Good luck.

    PS. After installing and connecting the phone via the USB cable, a USB symbol shows on the top bar of the phone - drag it down and click on connect. Then it will give you a "mount" option (funny terminology to use one a device like this) the phone - click on "mount" then the phone will connect to the PC.

    I upgraded the NPS to 1.4 and my I5700 is not being recognized. It only recognizes a "UMS Compositte" device and is not possible to do anything on it. I had connected the phone once before installing the software. I think I need to upgrade the driver, but I couldn't. Do you have some problem like this? I want to upgrade it to 2.1, but I need to have this solved first... :(

    I found the solution. Go Settings --> About Phone --> Additional Settings and remove chechbox from "Mass storage only". You will now see your phone as android system but not as USB storage device. Gl, guys :)

    if you own Samsung Spica i5700 with android 1.5 on it, you must have this settings. (it is the last menu item in Settings menu and the fourth one from top in About Phone menu)

    Unfortunately, i must say that PC Studio 7 doesn't see the phone.
    New PC Studio recognizes the phone but then u can't even sync your sms or contacts. No update available for me in Ukraine. Android System is not supported i think. Will wait for new software from Samsung.

    I called to Service Centre and will go there tomorrow. Will update my phone to 2.1 android firmware and ask about the synchronization.

    So 2.1 is officially available for update at your cellular carrier?

    I have been trying to get conected from my Galaxy Portal (GT-I5700) to my laptop and PC but with no luck until now.

    I have downloaded the NPS and it stated that the GT-I5700 is not supported and you must use Kies!!

    Having looked for the PC connection I have stumbled across USB debugging. I have switch this on and now my phone is recognised. YES!!

    Hope this helps.
