    my new years present to myself is a samsung galaxy s2 skyrocket.
    i was so tired of my old razr. i have a friend with a french accent and i could hardly ever understand him on the razr, constantly asking him to repeat, speak up, stop mumbling etc. i'm sure he thought i was the most ornery b*****d, but he was too polite to say so. anyway since i got the galaxy i can hear him clear as a bell.
    i have another friend who apparently doesnt like to talk on his phone; he texts everything. which is okay but i hated pecking out the words on the razr. now i can speak responses and it's soooo much easier.
    other fun things too but the only problem i'm having is figuring how to move pics from my pc or laptop onto the phone. i've been able to use kies air successfully to move pics from phone to pc or laptop, but so far not the other way. probably simple but any advice will be appreciated.
    Happy New Year!

    Hello and welcome to Android Forums! :)

    I prefer to connect the phone as storage and copy files that way. Go to menu>settings>wireless & networks>usb utilities and selct connect as storage. Plug the phone when prompted and accept the connection. It will all make sense when you do it. Your phone's storage will show up on your PC a removable drive(s).

    You can get more support for your phone in Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket (AT&T) - Android Forums.
