    The zedge app is probably best app for those of you who like to customize things such as …. ringtones and alerts and backgrounds ect…. it has thousands upon thousands of differt types content… enjoy.

    It can be found by typing zedge into the search feature on the android. market

    How can i upload video on face book from gs2 every time i try it fails pl tell me

  7. Phillip on December 8, 2011

    samsung Galaxy s2: Notifier, ringtone and vibrate settings required especially on calendar settings, to increase ringtones when one is in a noisy enviroment and to set vibrate for say twice and ringtones to increase.
    Blackberry has such settings for vibrate up to 3 times and then ringtone starts.
    Hope this makes sense

  25. H-Droid on July 6, 2011

    how do i customize apps into one icon like the iphone does on my samsung galaxy s2???.. for eg. Games icon that you can click and opens up all your games but EXACTLY like the iphone looks like.. a friend of mine has it done on his galaxy s2 but someone did it for him and doesnt know how!!

    • pointsize on July 12, 2011

      Hi, Im not running 2.3 or carrying an s2 but theres an app called App Organizer i think that does this. Although you need to manually add the apps into quickline folders that you can drag to a screen.

    • Jimx-galaxys2 on July 25, 2011

      just hold on the desktop and make a folder, then drag the games into the folder.

    Hello Raza,

    I brought this new Super Sleek Super Amazing Galaxy S2 phone.
    I migrated from Nokia after a long 1.5 Decade and found this to be an amazing move. However I am finding it difficult to manage all my tasks, calendar, SMS (Send/Receive) etc very difficult. Since I was used to Nokia PC Suite/OVI Suite I was looking for similar application that can help me manage the basic things just like i did in Nokia. I’ve found an application “MyPhoneExplorer” however if there is any official application it would be of great deal and trust than using a 3rd party app.

    Your advise would be of great value.

    Thanks and Regards
    Syed H

    • sureshpeters on June 24, 2011

      hey , you will be getting the CD right, check in it.But android is like the Linux Operating system and its quite advance. you just need to find where the file located, i can say you can use search box in your computer. tat will help you. but if i know any pc suite like thing, i ll drop the url soon

      • Syed on August 8, 2011

        I was able to use MyPhoneExplorer which i installed both on my PC and phone and was able to synch smoothly, however this has few drawbacks. It does not synch Outlook notes, and does not sync contacts completely i.e. if you have more than one number associated with the contact it may not sync them fully.

        I am still in search of any sync application that would allow me to sync up with outlook mails, notes, calendar and tasks in offline mode.

        Let me know if you can help with any, drop me an email of you find one.

        Thanks and Regards,
        Syed H

    • Manish on July 4, 2011

      I too migrated from Nokia E51, and thought the phone sII is good, I find Nokia was much easier to navigate. Some issue I need help on :

      1) Tasks – Nokia had tasks listed out on the home page. In s2 I can only see 1 task listed out and the other tasks need to be accessed by going to the date in the calender. Now is there any way I can get all tasks listed right on one of the home screens ?

      2) How do I get Internet access to my laptop by using s2 as a modem ?

      3) Reminders – How do I transfer my Nokia reminders (yearly birthdays etc.) data to s2 calender ?


  28. abhi on June 15, 2011

    i have a samsung galaxy s2 i want to connect my samsung galaxy s2 to my internet pc how to do it can any one tell me.

    • Raza Rahil Hussain Author on June 15, 2011

      Use “Kies” to connect your samsung galaxy s2 with pc. Download it from here

  29. xyzsor on June 11, 2011

    I only use the first two.. Most of these, i tried, but i didnt have use for the others.. like google goggles and evernote, or ebay.. i also dont use an Advanced Task Killer since i think theres a built in task killer on the phone..

  30. Tushar on June 6, 2011

    I dont think so, battery backup has greatly improved on my Samsung Galaxy S since the 2.3 update.

    • sureshpeters on June 24, 2011

      it ll improve, when you stop all background operations in your s2 phone and enabled the battery saving when the battery hits 70%

  31. sureshpeters on June 6, 2011

    Thanks man :) i heard that android 2.3 eats so much battery? so i need to root it. but rooting is against the warranty :( wat should i do

    • Asif on June 13, 2011

      1. Android 2.3 Does not consume more battery. It’s Must be your Phone.

      2. Root is not against warranty. Just restore to the stock firmware before claiming the warranty.

      • Raza Rahil Hussain Author on June 13, 2011

        Thanks Asif for valuable information.

      • sureshpeters on June 24, 2011

        asif, in andrid, root and unroot is simple thing :D and also heard that service guys wont look that phone is rooted or not
