Well I'm happy with my S now, only had it two weeks. I originally wasn't going to do any unofficial firmware upgrades to it, as I need it to be reliable as my main phone. However I was getting some lag, occasional freezes and the lack of Flash 10 was a bummer for some of the sites I look at regularly. So I upgraded it to 2.2 Froyo JPK using Odin3 as detailed on the XDA fora and all is now peachy with my phone. Kies is a horrible thing, while I got it to work. I'm just glad I don't have to use it.
