How to transfer files from PC to the phone
Go to Settings > About Phone > USB Settings > Select Mass Storage

When USB is connection, bring down the notification bar. Select 'USB connection' and select 'Mount'

Restart your phone if it doesn't work the 1st few times.

I just accidentally discovered that you can adjust the screen brightness by horizontally swiping the topmost part of the screen.

Getting mine on 2nd June too. Besides the phone specs being impressive, only disappointed with the below av speaker sound and no flash, base on review from website. Anyway, will know after 2nd June

Btw, know where to get accessories like case or scrn shield. Seems there's hardly any as phone is so new.

Lag starting apps still can overcome....but does it actually lag in the apps itself?

Mine's supposed to come on June 1st, but will see what Singtel decides.

Anyway, any casing/pouches available for the Galaxy S?

i just tried the phone at Jurong Point.
I think it's more of slow startup than lag..other than that everything else is very impressive.touch sensitive button is very sensitive unlike nexus one.Touch is very smooth.
I checked the memory,it got 13+GB internal and 1.8GB ROM for apps.

I will be receiving the phone this coming wed... I can't wait... I just visited the singtel shop at ion. There is a samsung shop there and the galaxy s demo set is there too! So I played around and use the camera... Wow... Brilliant display and slim sleek! Sadly, the camera doesn't have flash... I am hopeful the froyo updates will come asap.

There is a certain lag when going back to home page though... Like once pressed the button, abt 0.5s then it moves to home page... Hmmm...
