What is an Apollo? I'm serious - is that one of the new cheap Android phones?

Seriously, depending what you want to do there might be alternatives to Kies.
You can flash with Multiloader (done that and with Kies). You can copy files between PC and phone via Bluetooth. Works even under Linux . And you can take the micro-SD out of the device, place it in a card reader/writer and copy files this way. Filesystem at least on my GT-S 8500 is FAT32 or something stupid.
The only thing that needs Kies is the market place. But I haven't bought anything yet (no farting app or other sillyness ).
