    I have just got an Ace as a present and have a couple of questions.
    1) cannot get it to link to home computer and it keeps saying turn off USB storage. The comp knows it is connected as it will do a virus check on it so the USB cable is fine - please help.
    2) need a calendar that allows the frequency of events to include things like fortnightly, every other month, every three months etc, does anyone know of one that allows this?

    Also and tips greatly appreciated.

    HI,

    1) Try reinstalling the drivers Via Kies.

    2) I use the stock calender which I have things set for repeated entrys. In the calender settings make sure its using the Google account one and not the one on the phone

    What do you mean about stock calendar? If its the one on the phone the frequency of repeated entries are not varied enough for me. Need one that can Do fortnightly, every other month etc.

    Issue with connecting to comp sorted - it was clashing with Nokia software.

    If your Ace is running on Froyo then take it to the Samsung customer care and they will update the software with Gingerbread for free and your warranty will also not be void, and above all the battery life will increase.

    Using Kies to update does not invalidate warranty. Its the official route to update your handset.

    get yourself playerpro or poweramp.
    If you want to use factory music player then keep your phone in silent.
    Hope this helps.

    Create folder called media on sdcard. in that create another one called audio then in that another one called notifications and another called ringtones. Place files in the proper folder and then reboot. Once media scanner has run you'll be able to select them from the sounds menu in settings.

    It cant have gorilla glass. It sounds like plastic when tapping in the middle of the screen and already there is a very small scratch on my screen. I barely have the thing 24 hours, let alone that I really have done anything with it. And the galaxy ace is nowhere to be found on the gorilla glass website.

    http://m.corninggorillaglass.com/smartphone/ will show you it does. Also look on YouTube for galaxy ace gorilla glass test and watch as a key and knife fail to scratch screen. If yours is scratched get it swapped ......

    This sounds like my phone when I had 2.3.6. I think its bugs in the actual firmware. For me the 2.3.3 was better. Although its been a while as I have been playing round with Custom ROMS for ages now.
