So I’ve noticed that a fair number of people landed on my blog through search terms like “samgsung i9000 internet problem” and “can i tether ipod touch to samsung galaxy s”. They probably landed on my “first look post” of Samsung Galaxy S which means that they probably didn’t get the answer that they are looking for. Therefore, I thought I should do a post about those 2 “issues”.
Help! I am unable to switch off my wireless!
When you drag down the notification page, you will see that Wireless is turned on. Even when there’s not wireless network nearby, the WiFi button is still green. You tapped on the icon, it doesn’t go off! NOW WHAT?!
Well, here’s one of the ways you can switch it off. Head on over to Settings > Wireless and network > Wi-Fi settings > Wi-Fi. Tap on it and it should switch off (:
If that doesn’t work, you can try switching on the Mobile AP! It will ask you if you want to disconnect from Wi-Fi to use Mobile AP, click “Yes” and TADA!
On the very very rare occasions that both methods don’t work, switch off your phone. But thats only when necessary!
Can I tether to my iPod touch?
Of course you can! This is one of my most adored function 😀 Just switch on Mobile AP on Galaxy S (i9000), go to your iPod Touch look for “Galaxy S _8710” (or some other number), key the ‘password’ provided on your Galaxy S and VIOLA! Your iPod touch now has internet!
I know some people will go, “Why so stupid! Just surf on your Galaxy S lah! Tethering will waste battery for both devices!” but sometimes, I want to use banking apps that are on the iPod Touch but not on the Andriod system yet! PLUS! I realised something!
You know how video quality is VERY BAD if you watch them on 3G? No, it is not because of Galaxy S..iPhone has the same problem. So what I always do is to use Mobile AP and youtube on iPod touch! 😀 The streaming might be a bit slow but HELLO! Good quality! WHEEEE~
So there! (:
