    Question Anything worth doing following firmware upgrade?

    Just want to get peoples opinions on this...

    I had trouble upgrading to 2.3 Gingerbread from 2.2 Froyo, which was ultimately resolved by doing a (software) reset at which point Kies recognised an upgrade was possible. It also seemed to fix something where the newest Kies couldn't access my phonebook- after the upgrade that worked fine.

    So- is there any benefit in doing a system reset every once in a while? Backing up your numbers, clearing everything out and then reloading everything?

    On the one hand it's going a bit Windows 98, but on the other if it helps things worksmoothly who am I to argue?!

    You shouldn't have to unless something screws up.

    Also, consider trying ODIN instead of Kies. Kies has some issues.

    Exactly what Fbm said. You shouldn't have to and Odin works a lot smoother than kies.

    No need for a reset. Maybe a reboot every now and then.
