I just bought a galaxy s2 here in canada. i only have one word to say: stunning.
It's a great phone. Enjoy!
welcome to the club
im trying to connect my galaxy s2 to laptop by usb cable but will not recogise the device for uploading photos vids etc any help would be greatly appraciated thanks im fairly new!!
you will need to download Kies from the samsung website
good choice . make sure you put a screen protector on it before you do anything!
to my lap top ? or mobile?
Laptop, but it's not totally necessary. If you go to settings --> applications --> development, and check "USB Debugging" it will connect as USB mass storage.
You can accomplish the same under another section, but I forget where.
To your laptop. You can download Kies from the samsung web page. www.samsung.com

how do i connect my samsung galaxy s2 to my lap top to watch bbc i player what cables do i need ?
What is it that you are trying to do? Using the phone as a modem and stream the videos through the computer or play files located in the phone.
For using the phone as a modem, just go to settings/wireless & network/ tethering....
For files playing, just connect with USB.
If you want to stream video in SGS2 and have it played in an external monitor, I am not sure how it is done, but there are probably apps out there that figured it out already.
trying to stream bbc i player on my laptop, as on unlimited data on my contract on my galaxy using the phone as the modem
Okay then. Just go to;
settings/wireless & network/tethering
You can select either wireless or USB I think Of course USB is better so by all means just use that. Tried it before and it works fine, but speed is not consistent as you can see that 3G drops occasionally between 2G and 3G.
