Welcome to the Samsung Galaxy S 4G Device forum. The model number for the devices supported in this forum are:
Before you move forward, make sure you turn your phone OFF, take the battery out, and make sure your model number is EXACTLY one of the previously listed.

Please familiarize yourself with the Required Reading. Below that are some guides/tutorials written by various members. Further down are useful offsite links and the wiki.

See this is a old thread, but for new people maybe add the definition of Aries, and what the common bugs are. I know you all don't get many new people over here, but my wife has this phone. I put 4.0 on but don't want to go further as the confusion with common bugs.

Reading through the development threads is how you learn what those terms are and what the bugs are.
This is just a listing. EDIT: If a thread was made about aries and what bugs are current, I'd be happy to add it to the listing.

The hard part for users, understandably, is having to read.
I know it's hard, but it's part of how the forum works.

I don't mind reading, but even after a search and reading tons of comments I still have not found an answer. But thanks for responding anyways. Maybe once I get a solid answer I might just make that happen.
