    It works fine for Samsung's Android devices. It is only for the Android devices, not the Windows Phone devices.

    I, too, was lured by their advertisement on their ATIV S product page. It's frustrating. The only way to get updates is through Settings on your phone.

    Kies is only for their Android line-up. WP updates are OTA.

    No, Kies does not work fine with Samsung androids...not at all. Go to Cnet and see all the user reviews. It cleaned out my mp3 files on my mp3 player. Lord knows what it was doing in there. It corrupted files, never updated the actual phone properly. It acts like a virus. Horrible horrible software. I am presently looking for another phone just to get away from kies. I understand that LG uses the same software as Samsung: there goes that option....no LG for me.

    I'm sorry to hear that. It's unfortunate that Kies doesn't even work well with Samsung's Android devices.
