I hope you made her feel sufficiently guilty. My partner smashed my 50" Plasma TV with a remote not too long ago and I didn't have insurance so was pretty gutted.

Oh... that sounds a little worse

She is self confessed clumsy so I made her get a very good case for her iPhone 4. I don't think she will touch my phone again.

I have milked it a little. New BBQ Maybe :-)

Neets: I've got a new problem (or quirk).? Others have spoken about it on Doc's thread over the months but it hadn't affected me until just a week or so ago.

When I charge my phone the screen doesn't switch off after the pre-set 2 minutes.

Has anyone encountered this, and if it's bothered you, did you find a way to fix it?? I notice that it says "sleep policy" but I don't have the Wifi sleep policy set up (and checked it's not). I've not noticed that message before either.? Perhaps the two are related.


I just updated to 9.6.6 the other day so I just tried this out and it seems to work fine, but as you pointed out it could be a matter of time. Does it do this on different settings, like 30 seconds?

sittingduckz: My Galaxy s had a 20cm fall on Saturday and landed on a slate floor on a sticky up bit of slate. The screen protector showed the point of impact (about a pin head) and the LCD screen cracked. Once I peeled the screen protector off the outer glass was completely undamaged.

So outside glass has awesome strength for impact and scratch but obviously still has enough movement in it to break the LCD's back :-(

The repair is costing $210 and will be ready Tuesday (very Fast)... hopefully
Fingers crossed it's a good repair

I miss my phone, my old Nokia 6121 is good but no match for the gs




omg making my eyes water reading that lol

The thickness isn't actually that bad, and the stand is pretty sweet

Gingerbread!

XDA seems to be getting hammered. Possibly due to too many excited SGS owners...

Hmmm. . .well maybe - it's an official Samsung build, but looks like an Alpha (or maybe 1st Beta) release - lots of missing features, Touchwiz 3.0 etc.

Time will tell.
