Does anyone know if carphonewarehouse handsets are unlocked? Thanks
#2
Yes they are this is a really good price i have this phone and an iphone 4 and this is nearly as good
#3
Dont buy this thinking the movie and games package is good because the films are very hard to get on your phone ive given up and they dont have a very good selection of games they only offer a few but the phone is really good

Also available on Orange at same price. In my experience the handsets from CPW come unlocked. You can also get from Mobiles.co.uk for 5p less - http://www.mobiles.co.uk/orange-samsung-galaxy-s-pay-as-you-go.html

Please note that if you buy this through CPW you will NOT be eligible for the £50 worth of games etc, as this offer expired on 31/03/2011 - http://www.samsung.com/uk/galaxys/promotion.html

Also, it will come with Android 2.1 out the box and need upgraded to 2.2 to get access to a lot of Apps - a lot of people have had problems upgrading themselves - you need to install Samsung Kies on your PC to perform the upgrade and a lot coming back with 'no upgrades available for this model' and you need to find a way round it as some rumours circulating that Samsung Kies not supporting the Galaxy S at the moment (do a Google search on the topic).

Great phones and if you can get 2.2 or even 2.3 (which is due out in the next few weeks) I would prefer it to the Desire. Got a Galaxy S last week and was impressed with most features but for the life of me couldn't get it to upgrade to 2.2 despite trying various methods.

I had a desire and it kept locking up and the only way to clear it was to take the battery cover off which broke after the second time so i returned it i like this better it not as well made as the i phone but works as well and is half the price
#7
You can unlock a SGS for free if you need to. Just google it :)

I have one and it's a great bit of kit, but I must admit I have hacked it to bits. Official 2.3 GingerBread is just around the corner too, and early reports are that it massively improves the speed of the device (compared to 2.1).

Can't see me changing it for a long while...

#10

#11
Have this too...really great phone - just upgraded it to Gingerbread at the weekend- made a BIG difference. Much better display than the desire. All IMHO...
#12
What about battery life in both the desire and the galaxy s, which one is better??? Thanks
#13
i have heard that the gps is a little bit screwed up? good price anyway!
#14
Quidco at "£5 for pay as you go phone sale (including web exclusive) - on a transaction basis not per phone" too....

I have this phone.
It's not bad.

Easy to root & upgrade to FroYo (Android2.2), easy to remove simlock to allow use on different network. This deal is cheaper than CEX 'A' grade pre-owned unlocked Samsung Galaxy S i9000

:D Cheaper than a second-hand pre-owned one - lmao !!!!!! Good find !
#17
Cool to hear!

Was SIM unlock done by modifying 'nv_data.bin'? (or with an app?)
Which online 'guide' worked for you? (re: rooting and upgrading to Froyo)

Thanx.
