it has GPS as indicated in the specs
it also has A-GPS where it uses GPRS to download maps for your area (like when you use Google Maps)
S8003 (S8003DXIG3--bad version, widgets suck) (Asian units) have GPS DISABLED. You just need to flash the firmware to the more recent European release S8000XEII2 (youtube is bugged in this release but has Easy Java) or the S8000XPIJ7 (no Easy Java) where pure GPS is enabled.
I have the intention to get a Samsung Jet 8003 but could someone pls share with me what does it mean by "A-GPS support, Route 66"?
Does A-GPS support means it has a built-in SiRF Star III chipset and it does not requires GPRS for using GPS? Thanks...
you can install yahoo,
msn on it! and other popular messenger_
havn't tried skype though...
just use eBuddy...this app
is capable in doing chats...

Just kidding. Or not.
Read about 100 forums, a few thousand posts and with a bit of luck (and praying) you may manage to install Route 66. Or you could contact samsung so that they can tell you to piss off.
Just know, that it is not your fault, it should not be so difficult, there are hundreds of sufferrers like you and welcome to the club
Just purchased S8000 in the UK, fairly happy with it, the only exceptions being the poor battery life & trying to install the 'Route 66' navigation software, nightmare, almost impossible! Cam / vid very good, touch-screen not as sensitive as I would like but at £199 GBP, good value. 7/10.

I suggest you to check the darforestgroup first.
hi everyone, anybody here know how to turn on digital compass on jet? i see at the specs it has the digital compass but i cannot find it. help... thank you...
I think this phone is exellent! but for video recording, the Samsung S8300 ultra touch is much more better. Same D1 720x480 pxl, but sharper. But for other thing, jet is better.
Wow, i got dis.. can someone tell me how to install skype, nimbuzz. i installed skype.. but that one realy sucks?
I have been using this phone for more than 4 months now.
Pros- brilliant screen, very good music player, better than average phone camera, smooth wifi, pretty fast operations, plenty of space.
Cons- touch screen not as good as many other competitors provide, faulty software- i have observed blue screen multiple times, phone book entries get lost if battery level goes minimum.
Jet errors after 1 m, 25 Nov 2009At last a couple of reviews (read below) from people who not only actually own the phone but w... moreI have been using Jet for past 2 months and it is definitely the best phone I have ever bought till date. The best thing about the phone is its amazing screen, expandable memory upto 16GB.. I have 8GB on my Jet and it not at all slow. It has also a decent GPS on board; ofcourse, one has to get the admin codes to enable it in few regions of Asia. I did it and was quite easy to be honest. The music player is just awesome! However, I would have loved it more if it 'remembered' and 'selected' my last song in playlist. Each time you close the music player, the music list starts from 'A'.
I am really surprised to see so many -ve feedbacks for this phone. I will definitely recommend this one to any one who wants a touch screen phone with amazing screen, good music player, a decent camera. Wi-fi and GPS are good-to-have too.
I've had S8003 for 2 month. It's a good phone, but I've seen far better cams.
one thing is still naging me. I want use internet sharing with pc but I can't find a way.
One more thing i forgot to ask how to activate the e-mail..it's always come up with "DNS failed", what's that about?thx
I've been using this phone for almost 3 months..
actully it's a good phone, but i'm wondering where i can download yahoo messanger or other application..

i just ask u one more thing
(because i haven't flash samsung in my life and this is the new phone, so i fear that i'm making it useless)
if flashing fail with one firmware, is it possible to flash with another firmware or restore to previous firmware?
thank in advance
i've been using Jet
almost two months now.
and got NO PROBLEM with it!
honestly..still working fine_
so far, so good!!
maybe the problem of patvillaruz is
that he didn't use his phone properly
or it was a factory defect! You can change
that its still has a warranty!!
if you want your things lasts
you should use it properly and with care!!
honestly it will
work very fine!!!
about the network..uhhhmmm...so far you're
the only one is experiencing that kind of prob.
maybe factory defect also..better rush to your
nearest samsung center and asked for replacement!!!
using outdoor, when raining you should protect
the device...and it is fine using it outside
im taking pictures/videos anywhere i go!
listening to music while texting!! NO HANGS!!!
video quality is good!! HD..recording is 720*480
audio is good too!!! specially on Earphone *use sonywalkman earphone!! or ipod!
taking pictures has different settings to chose for it depends on the scenario.
no SCRATCH yet cause of there ANTI-SCRATCH technology..but if you really scratch it or accidentally on sharp surfaces like knife, key, sand paper or other rough surfaces it will truly get scratched!!
*IM LUVING IT!!!
good as new!!! =)
