  2. Samsung SM-900A unlocked, using on Cricket. Has 4.4.2 on it. A few issues:

    OTA says software is up to date.

    KIES says “This is the latest firmware”, and when selecting TOOLS->Firmware Upgrade and Initialization, KIES says: ” “” does not support initializing.”

    Cricket claims to be pushing lollypop, but the fact that my phone is not getting an update (even to 4.4.4) means it is not capable. Any merit to this? Samsung suggested I go to Best Buy and have them flash my phone using Smart Tool – but I can’t keep going to a Best Buy whenever I want an update.

    1. (SM-G900A, not SM-900A)

      Also, I have just noticed that the serial number on the sticker under the battery is different that within the Status page of Andoid. The serial number field in the status page in Android looks like an error code: e711d8ca

  9. Hello,
    I’m in the UK. I connected my Samsung Galaxy s5 phone (purchased in Sept 2015) to my iMac via the USB cable that came with the phone and was astonished to discover that I cannot upload the files (music, photos, audio, pretty much everything) from my phone to the computer. I tried bluetooth also but to no avail. How is it that this hi tech phone cannot perform this very basic thing that older phones are able to do easily? Can you please advise what to do as I am trying to release phone memory, and memory on my iMac is definitely not an issue here.

  12. I have Samsung Galaxy S5 phone and need to move photos/videos from it to my Mac. The Mac has Kies already on it, but I can’t find an app for my phone. If I connect them to each other using the USB, the transferring process takes FOREVER. Is it faster with Kies Air? Do I have to use the USB with Air? What it the FASTEST way to transfer my photos/videos en masse to the Mac? Thanks

    I think my USB cable is broken and unless I have to, I’d rather not buy another. At the moment I’m using an old S3/4 cable.
