Built to be fast, versatile and customizable, the Galaxy S™ II Skyrocket™ allows you to complete tasks quickly and easily—from organizing apps to sharing content. Try out these helpful hints to get the most out of your smartphone.
Connecting with Wi-Fi Direct™: Devices that are Wi-Fi Direct–certified can connect with each other without the use of an access point or a common wireless network. Capable products include select mobile phones, cameras, printers, computers and gaming systems. The Samsung Galaxy S™ II Skyrocket™ can use Wi-Fi Direct to connect with these devices to sync; share audio, video and images; play games; and more.
Wide Wi-Fi® Support: The Galaxy S II Skyrocket supports multiple Wi-Fi standards, including 802.11 a/b/g/n (2.4GHz and 5GHz), to make it easier to connect almost anywhere.
Using AllShare™: AllShare lets the Galaxy S II Skyrocket share content with a DLNA Certified™ device on the same Wi-Fi® network. DLNA-compatible devices include select TVs, computers, game consoles, and set-top boxes. To start using AllShare, connect the Galaxy S II Skyrocket to the Wi-Fi network and then touch Applications > AllShare.
Using Qik™ Lite: Qik Lite lets you video chat from any Wi-Fi® network. To begin video chatting, touch Applications > Qik Lite. Create a Qik account by touching Sign Up and following the onscreen prompts, or sign in to an existing account by touching Log In. After signing in, touch Video Chat and select a contact from the phonebook to begin the chat.
Switching Between the Two Cameras: During photo sessions or video recordings, you may want to switch between the rear-facing and front-facing cameras. While in the camera application, touch the Switch icon to toggle between the two cameras. In the Camcorder application, touch Recording Mode > Self-Recording.

Organizing Apps Into Folders: Within the applications menu, apps can be sorted into folders for a cleaner, more organized interface. For instance, you might want to group games together in one folder, create a separate area for easy access to business applications, or pull all your social networking apps into a single spot. To create the folder, within the Applications menu, touch Menu > Edit. Drag the desired files onto the Add Folder icon at the bottom of the screen. Please note that this feature is only available for customizable grid-style menus, not for the alphabetical grid or list-style menus.
Recently Used Apps: Touch and hold the Home key to open the Recent Apps menu, a thumbnail display of previously used apps. Touch any app icon to navigate to the app, or touch Task Manager to open the app management tool.
Turning Off Noise Suppression: Noise suppression is automatically enabled on the Galaxy S II Skyrocket to help you communicate more effectively in loud environments, but it can be disabled. To turn off noise suppression, touch Applications > Settings > Call > Additional Settings. Uncheck the box next to Noise Suppression.
Battery Management Tools: You can better understand battery life and how to optimize it with tools found in the Settings menu. Touch Applications > Settings > Applications > Battery Usage to see what programs are currently using the battery and the estimated remaining charge. You can also go to Applications > Settings > Power Saving Mode to set preferences that reduce battery usage.
Motion Settings: The Galaxy S II Skyrocket can use three user motions—turn over, tilt and panning—to control certain functions of the phone. Turning the phone over mutes incoming calls and sounds, tilting reduces or enlarges screen image in the Gallery or Browser, and panning moves widget and shortcut icons from page to page in the Home and Applications screens. To activate these features and learn more about them, touch Applications > Settings > Motion.
Direct Dialing & Messaging: If there are certain contacts that you call or message frequently, you can add those contacts as a direct dial or direct message shortcut on a Home screen. Then, with one touch and without opening the dialer or composer, you can call or message your contact. To add a direct dial or message contact, from the Home screen, touch Menu > Add > Shortcuts.
