    I have a brand-new SGS GT-I9000 (in Romania) , but for now I don't have anymobile internet connection. But I want to install apps on my phone, and I know it's possible with SDK Android.
    So I installed SDK Android (last version has USB driver included, so I installed it too from SDK) and...I don't know what to do next.
    First of all, do I need another driver to be installed for my SGS (the drivers for SGS were installed with Kies, I presume)?
    And then, how do I connect phone in USB mode and , especially, how to use command prompt (I'm a dummy on that thing?? When I open command prompt, it's a screen with "c:>\" - how can I erase this from command prompt and type adb install etc.?)
    Please explain me step by step what to do...

    To use adb to install an app, you need the apk file. But if you already have the apk file, you can install it directly from your phone anyway.
