    I'm trying to get my phone to read all the music off my sd card, and i can't get it to do that, do you know how i can do that?

    Last question, how do you tether this phone? I used to be able to do it with my blackberry b/c it had to option on the desktop manager, but i don't know how to do it with this phone.

    Go to settings, wireless and network. It's under that.
    I think you might have to set up a folder for your music or find the folder that the player reads. I had to set a folder up just for ringtones since I use .mid

    I am a pretty new owner of one of a Galaxy S 4G. I am on the Sprint network. It got updated recently to 2.2.1. While I like the silencer on the notification bar, orientation sensing got sluggish, notification ringtone got substituted and would not restore from settings, sound. This may be user ignorance. Is there a function I don't know about that will now set different sounds for an email notification and a text notification? Thanks for taking the time. I'm also curious about the risks/advantages of root for this device. Sorry to bother you about this if there is a well-known faq or other ref, but this forum is the best thing I found by googling the question.

    I use Verizon and when I look at my texts there are some threads that the person's name highlighted in color and others that are white. Why is that?
    Also, I have an IMAC and when I plug in my phone to grab songs off of the IMAC Itunes does not recognize the phone.
    Any easy instructions ? I tried using some other advice using downloaded apps but kept running into problems. Thank you.

    I know NOTHING about cell phones. I just got the Galaxy s 4g and it wont send texts that go over 1 text (over 160 characters). I like everything else about the phone, is that a problem with ALL galaxy s 4g phones or if I exchange it do I have a chance it wont happen with the new one???
