    Hi all, had my Samsung Galaxy S this week and love it......my mates in work have iPhones and they say they can create folders on thier pages, name them accordinaly (music, pictures, apps etc.....) and then place the corresponding data, media etc..... in them, so they are all placed in specific folders.. Is this avaiable to do on the Galaxy S? Is there a app out there for it?

    long press on any of your home screen, when a pop up menu comes select Folder, this will create afolder on your home page then simply drag and drop any app or shortcut in it ....

    Thanks. Anyone, personalisation tips or tricks out there? Anyone advice on trying to keep the battery life lasting longer? On the top of my screen I constantly have a "E" symbol with 2 arrow underneath it, it this suppose to be there all the time?

    the E symbol on status bar means your data EDGE connection is On

    So what does that mean? Should I leave it on, or turn it off? What is it doing whilst being on?

    Just press and hold. You will be surprised by how many things you can accomplish just by press and hold.

    Make sure to check out Launcher Pro. It allows you to have homecreens scrolling left and right and also provides more customization options. Also replaces the Touchwiz app menu with something close to a standard Android one. Hope this helps

    Hi,
    I have done the same and get success to replace the native incall screen with our custom screen having some rich information in it. This screen launches when call is inComming call and also at the time of outgoing call.
    You can launch any activity by giving some delay at the time of call incoming notification found. It would replace the native screen by the custom one ..

    BUT THE MAIN PROBLEM IS TO PIC THE IN CALL AND TO CANCEL THE OUT CALL BY CLICK ON BUTTON. How can I do that , I have used fallowing codes but none of them is working ... :
    --------------------------------------
    // Intent new_intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_MEDIA_BUTTON);
    // new_intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_KEY_EVENT, new KeyEvent(
    // KeyEvent.ACTION_DOWN, KeyEvent.KEYCODE_HEADSETHOOK));
    // AfterScreen.this.getApplicationContext().sendOrderedBroadcast(
    // new_intent, null);
    ----------------------------------
    Intent new_intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_ANSWER);
    // new_intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_KEY_EVENT, new KeyEvent(
    // KeyEvent.ACTION_DOWN, KeyEvent.KEYCODE_HEADSETHOOK));
    // AfterScreen.this.getApplicationContext().sendOrderedBroadcast(
    // new_intent, null);
    ---------------------------------------------

    // Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_ANSWER);
    // intent.setFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_SINGLE_TOP
    // | Intent.FLAG_DEBUG_LOG_RESOLUTION
    // | Intent.FLAG_FROM_BACKGROUND
    // | Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK);/**/
    // intent.addCategory(Intent.CATEGORY_DEFAULT);
    // intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_KEY_EVENT, new KeyEvent(
    // KeyEvent.ACTION_DOWN, KeyEvent.KEYCODE_HEADSETHOOK));
    // startActivity(intent);
    ------------------------------------------------------

    // Intent intent = new Intent (Intent.ACTION_ANSWER);
    // intent.setFlags (Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK);
    // Receiver.mContext.startActivity (intent);
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    // Intent ic = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_ANSWER);
    //
    // ic.setFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_SINGLE_TOP
    // | Intent.FLAG_DEBUG_LOG_RESOLUTION
    // | Intent.FLAG_FROM_BACKGROUND
    // | Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK);
    // Receiver.mContext.startActivity(ic);
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    // Intent myIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_ANSWER);
    // myIntent.setFlags( //
    // Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_SINGLE_TOP | //
    // Intent.FLAG_DEBUG_LOG_RESOLUTION | //
    // Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP | //
    // Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK | // will crash
    //
    // Intent.FLAG_FROM_BACKGROUND //
    // ).addCategory(Intent.CATEGORY_DEFAULT);
    // Receiver.mContext.startActivity(myIntent);
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    // Intent intent = new Intent(android.in.action.ANSWER);
    // intent.setFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK);
    // startActivity(intent);


    // Intent myIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_ANSWER);
    // myIntent.setFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_SINGLE_TOP
    // | Intent.FLAG_DEBUG_LOG_RESOLUTION
    // | Intent.FLAG_FROM_BACKGROUND
    // | Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK);
    // startActivityForResult(myIntent, 0);
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    // Intent intent = new Intent("android.intent.action.ANSWER");
    // intent.setFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK);
    // startActivity(intent);

    // Receiver.mContext.startActivity(Receiver
    // .createIntent(AutoAnswer.class));]

    -------------------------------------------------------------
