Re: Installing Kies without internet connection
Yes, Kies PC. As far as I remember well it asked for connection just after unpacking.
Of course I took my previous phone (SE K800i, by the way never any problems with it, besides connection speed) and the installation went smoothly.
Another approach (just for test, an maybe useful in future) was to install PdaNet and then Kies using PdaNet connection.
