  1. Samsung Kies seems to be the best solution that helps in avoiding GMAIL routing. I recently bought Galaxy S3 with Fido plan and after googling around for about 3 hours learned about Samsung Kies. It took a more than 15 minutes to install full Kies. Also when Kies tries to connect to the connected S3, unlock S3 by swiping on the screen otherwise Kies cannot connect to the device. Syncing the device with outlook calendar and contacts was seemless and very easy. I also took the backup of the device in Kies. What a relief!

    1. Hi Buddy,
      I'm so glad you are willing to share your experiences and useful tips here.
      May God always bless you :)
