    Oooh! so it is - but I'll see if anyone gets issues before I install - and I also need to backup my phone first...

    Done mine this morning too. Took about ten minutes. Lost root and home screens have been re-set to default. Other than that, no problems so far.
    All settings and apps are still intact.

    Anyone else finding that the battery life seems much worse now?

    I'm trying to run the update I get the "A new firmware version is available" dialogue. Following a backup I get "Prepare for back-up" then the, "Firmware upgrade progress GT-I9000 Ver." dialogue. But then I see "Failed to acquire permission from the GT-I9000 administrator. The program will close."

    Does anyone have any advice how to overcome this?

    I've rebooted both the phone and PC but that hasn't helped

    The battery will need re-calibrating now, as the upgrade has put a new batterystat file on.

    Yes I think the battery seem lots better in Gingerbread cos I noticed the level took much longer than the Froyo which drained a lots... Im glad ive updated and I can use my SGS with 2.3.3

    uninstall KIES old version included remove in regedit in one line (be careful when you delete -just delete the KIES folder in registry editor) as well then reboot then install new KIES version then install and try again as it will work fine

    Lucky 096. Thanks for the reply. I managed to get Ginger installed earlier (sorry, I should have said) I don't know which of these solutions did it but here goes. I had factory reset the SGS and reformatted the SIM but this had no effect. I did, however notice that when the SGS first connected with Kies, there was a sync error. So, I unchecked all the sync options. and closed Kies. I turned off my Security Essentials firewall and then restarted Kies with "Run as Administrator". It worked!

    I had backed up the SGS both in Kies and with My Backup Pro but neither get my calender back to where it was.

    As an aside, my contacts now list everthing on the phone, the SIM and Google and I have duplicates. How can I organise the SGS to see just one list?

    Gingerbread is slicker and better on battery. It seems like Samsung has breathed some new life into the SGS, well done Samsung.

    Sorry if its a stupid question but how do you re-calibrate the battery?

    I would do the following:

    1. Charge phone till 100%
    2. Use your phone as normal until it drains battery totally to the point where it shuts down by itself.
    3. Charge the phone back to 100% with out interruption
    4. Repeat this process a few times.

    As a general rule of thumb, avoid short top up charge and only charge when your phone is near depleted. Of course this is not always possible, but try and avoid it.

    I have upgraded but weirdly I don't get the black (or dark grey) pop up menu with white lettering. I only get the old grey on white.

    Why? Can anyone help?

    Some people say calliberation is not needed for Li-ion batteries. Wonder how effective it is?

    To fully recalabrate the battery use the phone untill it turns off then put the phone into download mode for the battery to drain fully then recharge it
