    Hi All :)

    Its good to be on here and I hope that this thread is in the right place. I wanted to thank everyone for all that I gained from reading the forums so far.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S with 8gb on board and a 16gb media card I put in on T-Mobile UK running Eclair 2.1.+samsung software

    Here are my questions:

    I gather from the forums, that the GPS on the Galaxy either works for people or is doesnt? I want to check whether I have a 'lucky' handset or not, as if i dont I will send it back (had it 3 days) and get a new one that does. How do I do this?

    GPS being well, what I want to do, is to optimise the speed, general performance and aesthetic of my phone. Also, I want to newtwork unlock the phone from T-mobile to potentially all carriers.

    I want to install a Froyo. Eiether a custom Froyo as the OS (which one is most stable? Or what are the best ones out there at the moment?) or is it worth waiting for over the air or Kies 'official' Samunsg Froyo update from T-mobile?

    If I go for the custom ROM, what order should I do this? What about 3 button recovery?

    Do I need to root first?

    Another couple of questions:

    Once this is on board I want to add some UI enhancement and or theme, any recommendations?

    Thanking you in advance for your input
