    Newbie here, so I hope that these questions are in the correct forum, as I am using a Galaxy S2 i-9000 rather than the i-9000g. I am running v 2.3.3, and using a Macbook with OS 10.6.7

    1. is there a way of 'speed scrolling' to the top of pages (eg. top of my twitter feed or the top of a pdf document)? I know my iPhone allowed me to touch the status bar to return to the top of a page

    2. notifications of email - is there a way to set notifications so that the phone vibrates more than once? I use the GMail app.

    3. any suggestions on the best app to manage large music libraries? I am having trouble with Kies on the Mac (it is very slow to start, slow to load files, doesn't always sync my phone, etc). I found Winamp for Mac beta better (I'm early on in my trial of this product), but at first blush it seems slower.

    4. my phone is unlocked. Is there an OS for this phone newer than 2.3.3?

    Thank you in advance. Glad to be part of what seems to be a very vibrant community!

    Are you sure you have an S2? as the i9000 is the Galaxy S. This forum is for the Galaxy SII (GT-I9100)

    1. You mean like tapping the notification bar on iOS? No such shortcut on android, but scrolling can accelerate to a much faster speed on android, just flick up really fast about three times and you'll hit the top.

    2. Not that I know of.

    3. Let iTunes manage your music then mount your phone as a disk and copy/paste the songs you want onto either the internal memory or the sd card.

    4. Depends where you live, I'm in the uk and the latest version available is 2.3.4 for me. Go to settings, about phone, software updates, update.

    Will updating the phone software reverse the unlock?
    As for the scrolling shortcut, I think that would be a nice feature to include in the future.
    As for managing music, have you tried Player Pro? that looks pretty slick.

    Updating phone doesn't remove unlock.

    Yes, but it must have been added by a ninja as it's very well hidden. :)

    Open the Gmail app, go to Menu/More/Settings, select your account and then Labels to notify/Inbox. Enable Vibrate and disable Notify once, and it should now behave as you wish.
