got latest version of Kies, at least it reads my phone now!! so first thing - "Your device does not support software upgrading via Kies"... wtf????
anyway went to contacts and it listed the phone contacts, so far so good, went to the SIM card tab, it thought about it and than abandoned the process.
now i just have a screen saying load contacts from GT-I9100 and underneath that an Import Contacts button that does not do anything....
so is it simply a case of a corrupt SIM?? but if so why did it do the same with a new foreign SIM?? software problem maybe....
guess i better buy a usb SIM reader
Now Kies wont even recognise phone.. my God in heaven Kies must be the worlds shittiest piece of software!!
