        phone: samsung galaxy s III att
        browser: tried safari 5, internet explorer 9, and mozilla firefox
        i disabled the firewall for norton internet security 2012
        i followed the directions on the kies air program on my laptop for trouble shooting kies air with no dice
        problem: my laptop does not see my phone. i cannot use my phone as a wifi hotspot, because i have unlimited data, and att wont allow me.

        any ideas how i can use kies air. i dont want ot use a usb cable because i am afraid of getting viruses.

        1. switch of your wifi and disable mobile data on your mobile . Now Open your Kies Air app on your phone, now tap on Start. You will get two options wi-fi and Portable wi-fi hotspot. tap on Portable wi-fi hotspot. Now enable personal hotspot. Connect your pc to your android hotspot, then enter url shown on your kies air app……. i hope it will work for you.

  5. Arvind S says:

    hi with regards to your above post the keis hotspot which is created what is the wep pass word for it !! my macbook asks for password while trying to connect .thanks in advance

    1. configure portable wi-fi hotspot and edit password which you want to use……. now enter it on mac…….

  6. Jack Streit says:

    Sometimes it works, usually not. It does not detect any other devices even though both the phone and computer are connected to the same WiFi network.

    1. you should enter ip address which is displaying on your kies air app interface, i hope it will work for you. if you still getting this problem then let me know.

  7. Jay Man says:

    Should it work when my PC is connected via cable to router and my phone using wi-fi to the same router? I can not connect. Thank you.

    1. yes it will work if your pc and mobile connected on same wi-fi router. enter address correctly in browser as shown on your Kies Air app. It will ask on your mobile to allow access, please allow it.

  8. david says:

    Kies air just won’t load, no matter which of my 3 computers i use. If it ever does load after ages waiting, it is impossible to transfer files/photos etc. I never had any joy even with my previous phone (galaxy s1) I now have galaxy s2 19100. Great shame, good phone let down by rubbish software/app

    1. Kies air works properly. You need to check your wifi signals or use inbuilt wi-fi hotspot for solving your problem. Download Java for best performance of Kies Air App.

  9. muneer says:

    plz ,, i must download kies air in my computer ??? cuz so meny time try use kies air but nothing,, its open in my galaxy 2 and i see my wi-fi but no conect ,, plz give me the solution. gr

    1. Download Kies Air on your Android device and follow steps i described in article above……… It will surely work. But make sure your both devices are connected on same wifi network if note on same network then user your device wifi hotspot to direct sharing to your pc…. connect to personal hotspot and access data…..

  14. Meredith Allison says:

    Hi Surendra, I was attempting to read through all comments here to see if you’ve answered my question but I can’t seem to find the time to read through them all. I did just send you a tweet so hopefully between the two you’ll see my question. I had all but given up waiting for ICS but now that we’re on to jellybean I figured I should at least give it a shot manually. I didn’t realize what Klies was for (figured it was just more useless bloatware but apparently not). I opened the app, I’m connected to my home PC wifi. I entered the URL I was shown upon opening the app (I entered this on my SGSII) I read elsewhere that I can not get the update with Klies app but according to your post here, that’s not true. After I entered URL nothing happened, just a white page. Can you explain to me what step I might be missing? Do I need to go to my PC and work from there? Apologies for what is likely common knowledge to you (but to me this is like a foreign language)

    1. after entering shown url you need to allow your pc on your mobile phone screen………. please let me know if you still facing this problem.

  15. moustafa says:

    if i already transfered many photos and videos to my computer through kies air and mobile samsung gt8910..and i lost my computer can i open them from any other computer or i have any other solutions to get my videos and photos back..thank u so much

    1. check on your mobile, if you deleted then you are unable to recover data.

  16. jim says:

    Hi Surendra,

    I’m trying to get Kiesair to work (Galaxy S3 and Win7 PC) but Kies air fails to find my pc when scanning for devices. Both are using the same wi-fi network at my home. Any suggestions?

    1. Kies Air is App on your Mobile, Open app on android phone and enter shown address in browser URL…….

  17. Jason says:

    hi there,
    the connection between mobile and Mac worked a treat once. Now whenever I type in the URL I get a blank page in my browsers? Should it be a new URL every time?
    regards Jason

    1. Ya you need to Open Kies Air app and start process as you did before….. Type URL shown on your Phone Screen than enter, now allow access on your mobile……

  19. Tero says:

    My computer has a wired gigabit Ethernet connection to my wireless router which on the other hand has a WiFi connection to my Samsung S2. I don’t seem to be able to connect my mobile phone to my PC using Kies Air. Is it because my computer is not using a WiFi connection? But my computer and the phone are any way in the same IP subnet, so how would KiesAir know that they are not in the same Wifi network? Is there any way to make this work? Thanks!

    1. it should work on ethernet connection on your wireless router, please put address shown on your kies air app and grant permission…………

  20. Neil says:

    Will this work on my iPad 1 if so where do I download the iPad app to link my iPad to my pc laptop it works fine on my galaxy s ii thanks!

    Hi, I have wired internet connection on my laptop and i dont have any data internet connection on my S3 phone, so I want to use my laptop internet connection to my S3 either through wired or wifi… I tried using connectify, but is is slow…. does Kies software on my laptop has any option of transferring my laptop internet to my samsung galaxy s3.

    1. Kies Software doesn’t have internet sharing on mobile through PC. So using connectify is good option for you? If you getting slow speed on wifi then try to change wifi channels 1,6,12

  23. Ali says:

    Dear Surendra Kumar,

    Really you are doing wonderful service for all persons, whoever have asked doubts. I really want you to appreciate for your work. Keep moving with your work…….. Regards, Ali.

  24. Santosh says:

    Dear Surendra,
    I connected my Samsung S2 with my laptop using Kies Air and I could view the contacts and msgs on my laptop.I m not sure if I did backup of my phone data(contacts,msgs etc).Now the S2 is factory resetted.Is it still possible to get my contacts & msgs back to my new S3.Pl advise with step by step process.Awaiting for your reply.If their is not process, can I get the infor from KIES ? Thanks& Regards,Santosh

    1. No they didn’t backup automaticlly. Do you used Facebook App on your S2 device,if yes then you can recover your contacts?

  25. Dipak says:

    I have purchased Samsung galaxy S advance 3days back. I want to use my pc(with OS Win7) network with my phone.

    Steps Done so far:
    1. Installed the Samsung PC suite on my PC
    2. Connected phone to the PC through USB cable
    3. Selected Setting->Wireless and network->Tethering and portable hotspot->USB tethering

    But I am not getting the pc network to phone.

    Is there any setting more to be done or i have to something more?

    1. Do You want access Internet from Computer to Mobile? Or Want your mobile as Modem(datacard) Please let me know?

  26. uda says:

    Hi Surendra
    i am trying to edit or delete from my contact list name or number i see edit + delete both are blurred only people on skype or email can be edit or delete using kies air + galaxy exibit 4g also on the bottom left page of Kies air were the speaker is no sound at all
    thank you for your help

    1. You can’t edit contacts saved in SIM card.

      1. Sally says:

        Hi – great tips and advice, thanks. Is it possible to move your SIM contacts over so that you can then manage them in Kies? I had lots of duplication errors when I first hardwire synced the phone and it would be so much easier to sort this in Kies.
        Best, Sally

  27. Matt Dale says:

    I’m having no trouble connecting through a browser but I’m interested in the system tray app which seems to notify when a new text message arrives. The system tray app does not seem able to see my phone. Likewise on my phone if I search for a kies air server nothing is found. Any ideas?

    1. check phone permissions, remember your computer on android phone.

      1. Matt Dale says:

        Which permissions? When I connect through the browser it pops up a prompt on the phone which I accept so I can see the data in a browser. However the system tray app still cannot see any phones

        1. Matt Dale says:

          I have seen many other people with the same issue so am of the opinion that Kies Air Message just doesn’t work. For now I’musing AirDroid

        2. kies air is browser based mobile management service through wifi

          1. Matt Dale says:

            You are not listening to what I am saying, there is a system tray component called KIES AIR MESSAGE. It is not browser based and I believe is intended to tell you when you get calls and text messages, something which would be very useful to me. However it doesn’t work at all. When I get a chance I may harass Samsung

  28. francois says:

    I downloaded kies air and went through the whole installation and I can view my Samsung galaxy SII calendar and contacts, but how do I sync it with outlook through the web browser – I am using firefox and as I said I can view everything so it is connecting to my phone but how do I sync it with outlook

    1. Use Samsung kies software on your computer for syncing device to your computer.

  29. helen says:

    hi there! it doesn’t work for me. I did follow your instruction. but my phone didn’t ask me about the confirmation of device connection. it also said the “enter URL in browser”. I typed it on my browser (I use chrome), but nothing happened.

    1. please make sure mobile and computer is connected through same wifi network.

  30. I want to share my mobile data but i have faced problem

  31. Ankit says:

    hey , dude
    jus wanna know dat if i want to secure my connection frm passkey wer shud i give it bcoz it dosn’t
    show the same any were ?????

    1. it is already secured until u grant permission on your mobile screen (Asks about allow access data).

  32. joanne burns says:

    hi i wrote you a question on the 27th of august and you havnt replied i would appretiate if you could help me. thanx

    1. explain what problem you are getting in using kies air app….

  33. Tatiana Minick says:

    Is it possible to use kies air as a backup with all the stuff in my phone, and then up;oad it to a new samsung phone?

    1. you can download and upload them to another phone or use kies air access url on your new phone and download content (mobile phone browser doesn’t support java so you can share content on another mobile one by one). Or use computer for download all content and upload to other devices.

  34. Buddy says:

    I start the app. I go to my browser and enter

    My PC IP address is

    Phone asks if I want to allow and I say yes

    Page starts to load and then just hangs. It causes Mozilla to crash

    IE 9 and Chrome just sit there only thing listed is settings, I can see transferring data/waiting for phone

    Nothing happens. I am running the latest Sprint updates.

    Why did you screw with the USB connectivity. I don’t wanna sync things I want to transfer files to and from my phone….

    Ughhhhh Worst move Ever……

    1. clear browser cache? check your wifi signal strength on mobile and PC?

  35. Mongezi says:

    im getting an error that reads ” you dont have permission to access this device” im using windows 7, never had this prob before, what can i do?

    1. allow access on device, when you enter URL in browser then Kies Air app on your phone asks you about permission.

  36. Kimmy says:

    This does NOT work on all phones, due to software issues. I know what I am doing and it works just fine when connecting my laptop to my samsung tablet, however, will not connect with my samsung galaxy note. I know the connection is not being made, but it won’t show the pop up that asks for permission to connect. This is what I am missing. I have checked the setting in kies on my phone and it is set to allow wifi connected devices, but still will not give me that screen I need to make the connection.

    1. it is working on my galaxy Note and tablets both??

  37. Klarkykat says:

    I don’t want to install the new update. Why does this app need so much access to your phone book, to make calls, to send ams and to have access to your settings like volume, vibrate etc.? The huge list of permissions seems like a weird joke. How and why is it legal for an application to have this much access to your phone?

    1. you can trust it, requires access for using features but don’t misuse permissions….

  38. Sue says:

    Hi, Surendra,
    I’m trying to transfer multiple files from my PC to Samsung Galaxy S3 via Kies but I can only do them one at a time. It’s very frustrating. I downloaded Java but never got a prompt asking me to enable Java Applet. Is there anything else I can do. I’m talking about hundreds of songs and without an option to transfer them all at once, I have to keep selecting “upload,” “choose file (one song),” then upload that and do the process over again ad infinitum. Any ideas? Thanks!

    I have a Samsung GT-S5830i .(service Provider – IDEA, Pre-paid)
    I am unable to use Kies Air i.e. PC prompts no device found.(PC is windows (XP) based & with BSNL broadband.)

For example in kies on computer it will say Mom called at 4:45pm. But on the phone in the call log it will say Sister called at 4:45pm. What do u think has happened?

    1. your mobile has contacts conflict, please check your sim card or phone contacts or your phone is synced through google plus, facebook contacts…… save in one memory or check if duplicate contact in same memory???

      1. leyla says:

    I have Galaxy Note II. When i start Kies Air it hangs. If I look in running processes.. I see that it keeps on re-starting..

    1. Uninstall it and install again from google play store…… It happens some times with kies air.

  48. Dave says:

    Hello. I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and have recently begun playing with Kies Air. Overall I’m impressed with it – it’s a great utility and I find it to be very fast. One problem I’ve had with it is that I cannot seem to get it to preserve folder structures when downloading from my phone. I tend to store a lot of pictures, which I like to organize in folders based on events, etc. When I check the “ALL” box in the Kies Photos window, it ends up downloading all my pics into the same PC folder, undoing all my painstaking organization and making me separate them again manually. I’ve gotten around this by first creating an event folder on my PC and then downloading each phone folder, one-at-a-time, into its PC twin. While this isn’t such a big deal, it seems like it would be an easy thing to fix. I’ve briefly searched online for similar complaints but can’t seem to find any. Perhaps I’m not seeing something in Kies or Google Chrome. Any help?

    1. Sync photos using Samsung Kies software, it will help you in organizing photos…

  49. Sal Rodriguez says:

    Hello, How do I delete some of my text and calls from my call log?

    1. use kies air software to delete your call log or you can easily delete call log from your phone.

  50. Chris says:

    Hello? Is there any way to transfer and preserve folder structures for photos and music when downloading from a Samsung Galaxy S3 to a laptop? It seems that everything gets downloaded into one folder. tried to look at all the Kies help files but so far nothing. Help, please

    1. ya it is downloaded in one folder, you should use kies software for managed data transferring or select location when download files.

  51. brendan says:

    Hi, I used to have an S2 and using usb I just plug it Into my ps3 which is mac and I can access my sd card via was stolen and I now have a galaxy fame GT-S6810 using jellybean 4.1.2 .I think it must be the jellybean software because I can not read my phone sd card on my ps3 with usb. have tried every app, used with debugging on, my fame has allshare service listed in the apps but no allshare and I cant get on googlestore either.and the kies air app on googlestore is not supported by my phone either.PLEEEEEEEEEEZ help me, dont wanna lose another three years of photos and videos of my son! Brendan

    1. Before connecting usb to your mobile go to setting>> More setting>>USB utilities>>connect storage to PC, now connect your mobile to use as mass storage. OR you can download AirDroid which is alternative to kies air app.

      1. brendan says:

        Thnx alot will try it tonight

  52. Tanya says:

    I have kies air app on my galaxy s2 and iPad 2. I want to transfer photos from phone to ipad. I can get them to talk to each other and view photos in my browser (safari) on my ipad but there is no download option on the screen. Help

    1. You need to save pictures one by one using this. Better way is use PC for syncing photos between iOS and Android.

  53. Ruchika says:

    I entered my Kies Air address in my phone’s destop browser bt nthing is coming, wat to do now ??

    1. connect your phone and desktop computer to same wifi router or use wifi tethering. then enter url shown on kies air app.
