If you have problems with your Samsung Galaxy S (all versions) after you updated from 2.1 eclair to 2.2 froyo, you’re not alone. Turns out that there’s a problem with Samsung and their Galaxy S’s, and many people are experiencing lag, or general slow-ness, when using their phones.

SingTel 3G Mobile Broadband Internet Settings

Following up on my previous post on getting the setting for Starhub 3G APN settings, I got an Android phone with Singtel, and had to play around with the APN settings.

I Got The Best iPhone Alternative

So I got tired of constantly having to battle with jailbreaks, the incompatibility of jailbroken apps, the inability to sync with multiple computers, and the overall slow speed of my iPhone 3G. The video below’s just some proof of that: And so I sold my iPhone and upgraded. Android? Blackberry? Pfft.

How To Fix The Problem of Suddenly Not Being Able To Send Messages With Your Sony Ericsson Phone

If you have a Sony Ericsson mobile phone and suddenly have problems sending messages, this solution may help. This may also work on other phones. Basically, it’s some bug that causes your phone to be stuck on one message and prevents you from sending messages totally. You know your phone is working fine otherwise, because you can make and receive calls, and you can even receive messages fine. I tried normal reboots and complete power cycling, but those don’t work
