    Apologies for this novice question, but why??

    Kies - For backing up/syncing (I don't like Syncing. My PC and phone are 2 separate entities and I want to keep them that way), but it doesn't actually do a full backup per itunes for example!

    Kies Air - Pretty cool for looking at phone contents and moving files around (plus copy and pasting between phone and computer.....errrr backing up?!)

    Kies via Wi-Fi - Is that not the same as Kies Air?

    Plus I'm not even sure I have Kies on my phone. Should I have? Is it purely a computer app? How am I supposed to know this stuff??:hmmmm2:

    The only advide I can give you is to avoid Kies alltogether and don't even worry about them.

    Kies Air is a sharing application which requires an app from the play store and enables you to share data etc (browse the store for details). Kies wireless only connects you to the running Kies application on your computer and you move data back and forth using Kies on PC
