    I bought the Galaxy S2 a couple of days ago and on the whole I love it. There are just a couple off things that are bugging me.

    1. The internet seems to be working fine and is very quick but for some reason it won't buffer alot of the videos. Which is kind of strange as my less powerful Galaxy S could run videos way ahead of the buffer.

    2. The phone is powerful enough to run any website yet I keep getting transfered to mobile versions of the site with no option to go to the full version.

    If anyone knows any solutions to these problems I would be grateful.

    In the browser, type "about:useragent" (without the quotes) into the address bar and go. There you can select what the browser identifies itself to to websites. Select the desktop option and you ought to always go to the full website and not the mobile one.

    Has anybody worked out how to permanently change the useragent setting mine keeps defaulting back to custom?

    Is there a way to permanently set this as it keeps going back to original settings?

    Use a different browser like dolphin HD, you can change it in the settings then.

    There is a thread about this very problem found here:

    Permanent Change to UAstring

    I don't like the solution of "use a different browser", I like the default browser the most :)

    Thanks. It's sorted the problem out. It even sped the buffer up a little, although it's still quite slow.

    hi there i've recently started to notice when i press the home out of an application it goes straight to the Voice Talk, i know you have to press the middle home key twice.does become very frustrating as i have to clear memory to close the applications to save battery. Also whilst texting the send button doesn't always appear and i have to tap the text to get it up does anyone know if there and update to fix these problems or may i be the only sound the in Galaxy having this problem :(

    Has anyone noticed it lags when attempting to change the tilt. Going from a horizontal keyboard to a vertical one.

    Good day.

    My s2 has problems. It is frozen (screen). When display going dark i can't use it. I call from another phone to S2. Call is going but there is nothing on S2. I can't turn off. At the end I take off battery and put again. then it work. It has been many times such problem. What is it? It it defect? What can I do?
