    after i had problem with earplugs like others (which still isn't solved,it's just less annoying with some headset widget i found on this forum :/ ) now my phone restarts by itself...i mean,it's like it was turned off and i turn it on.
    it play samsung song and i need to enter the pin. i don't think it's battery stuff,cause the it would just shut down,or maybe i'm wrong... :/
    a have official firmware,i didn't change anything,it's like from the store...
    i'm really disappointed and frustrated with all these problems which came out of nowhere :(
    sorry for bad english..

    well if you didnt change anything maybe you should head back to the store and tell them about your problems...

    You should do that, as you didn't touch your phone.

    If they don't want to help, I recommend updating your firmware (Galaxo is the best ROM as of right now), but make sure you find your original firmware somewhere in case you have to go back.

    To find out your firmware number, you have to go into the settings, about phone, and scroll down. In case someone didn't know.

    I've never went back to my original firmware, but if I had to bet it would be that it wasn't updated. :D

    Have you tried in Samsung New PC Studio (aka the official way of updating?)

    In short, yes.

    lol, your phone must have ben on stock somewhere for quite a while, normally all phones sold now have ii5 firmware as far as i know...

    however, it is strongly suggested to update your phone, this will definitely solve the restart issue. but if you want to get most out of your galaxy i

    I have Windows 7 Ultimate x86 (32 bits), and NPS worked fine. Windows is not the problem (unless you have a 64bits system, then it might be).

    When I go into Menu (top left), Version information, I have NPS 1.5.0 AC4

    Simply because I don't know if x64 users were able to run NPS on their PC.

    Still, once you find a firmware it's really easy with Odin, no biggie.

    well...i have a friend whose dad works in samsung service.i'll give to him my phone and see what will they say in the service,just to be sure. i think that's the best option.
    after that i'll probably go for galaxo and hope that i'll get rid of all these ridiculous problems.
    tnx for all your help and advices...

    thats kindof normal for samsung original firmware, you should really try to install galaxo 1.6.3.3, this fixes many of stock 1.6 issues and is actually the only really useable rom for galaxy.
