About this particular version - Unlocked International Version with 1 Year Warranty sold by Amazon.com:
When you get the phone the 1st factor you will notice is that everything will be in Greek. Do not panic.

Click that and then click the to begin with selection in the menu. Now you may possibly opt for among various languages. European Portuguese and US English are attainable. Phew!

To my good friends in Brazil: (Galaxy S I9000 desbloqueado Brasil - traduza com o Google Translate)
Samsung doesn't sell the I9000 in Brazil. That's since there is a specific I9000B version, the only distinction becoming a digital Tv tuner. Nonetheless the unlocked I9000B price tag is US$ 1100. If you have the choice to bring a cell telephone from the US without having taxes, why overpay? The I9000 does work in Brazil, at least I've tested it in Rio, Sao Paulo and Brasilia.
Get a SIM card ("chip") by TIM, which utilizes the 2100 MHz frequency. I highly suggest a information program of at least 250 Mb/month. Also, it really is a excellent idea to allow International Roaming and test the telephone straight with your chip when in the US.
Pick the Unlocked International With Year Warranty sold by Amazon.com. Have your order delivered to the US and bring it back with you on the plane, or you will be heavily taxed. Your international credit card issued in Brazil is ok to use right here in Amazon, even for deliveries in the US. Attempt to arrange a way to order in advance, primarily if you are not going to remain long in the US, as delays might possibly take place (I ordered mine on Jan 18th, should certainly be delivered 2 days later but only arrived on Feb 7th).
As soon as the telephone arrives, install a SIM card and see if anything operates as it need to. It is less complicated to use the warranty in the US if you have to. If you are using your TIM number, you will get three SMS messages as soon as you register. 1 of them has a toll-free of charge quantity to call TIM in Brazil. Use it to test your speaker and microphone. (Note: roaming charges for each data and voice are pretty incredibly expensive, so do not get excited. If you wanna play with your new toy, get a prepaid SIM. ATT or T-Mobile will need to operate.)
To configure the Web, as soon as you are back to Brazil. Click Menu, Settings, Wireless and Network. Then click Mobile Networks, Access Point Names. Click Menu, New APN. Name: TIM Connect Rapid, APN: tim.br, Username tim, Password tim, APN kind World-wide-web. Leave the rest as it is. Check that the MCC number is 724 and the MNC is 02, 03 or 04. (You can make certain of the right MNC by typing 0011 on the dialer - look for Reg PLMN 724-?). Click Menu, Save. To make your telephone connect only to 3G (quicker but not available everywhere), Menu, Setting, Wireless and Network, Mobile Network, Network Mode, WCDMA only.
To alter the input language: Menu, Settings, Locale and Text, Pick input system, SWYPE, go back, SWYPE settings, Language, Português Europeu. Brazilian Portuguese works nicely with that, even though you will need to have to add a few words that are spelled differently.
To alter the applications language to Brazilian Portuguese: install an app named MoreLocales2 from Android Industry and adjust locale to pt-BR.
Arrived on time. Came with 2.2.1. Installed the KIES (Samsung Pc Console) and then upgraded firmware to Gingerbread.
Outstanding phone, no words can described how good and stunning this screen is. Sure Apple has retina display but AMOLED is no left behind, colors are vivid and crisp and blacks are honestly black. Finally if you see the screen size, can help to factor...Damn, why Iphone produced it so smaller
Anyway...excelent phone. Operating fine in Costa Rica with 3G network. GPS works fine a nicely
