How can I use Googlemaps standalone as a map without a phone connection? I dont subscribe to web service. When using Wifi, the GPS works fine and I can see where I am. However, when Wifi is closed, the Googlemaps start, shows me the map I saw before with Wifi on, but then shuts down with the message that it cant connect to the web. I still see the map in the background, but I cannot keep it there. I hope there is a way to tweak Googlemaps, so I can just use the map as a map, to for navigation. Thanks. JimJ
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2010I have this phone,GPS doesnt work and its quite slow!I have this phone also and Samsung LBS (route 66) navigation software and works perfectly.It pinpoints me to about 1 metre so dont go saying gps doesn't work on this phone because it does.
I wonder wich phone is better this phone or the 5800 express music
I am using iGo navigation program with this phone.
Works beautifully ..
I've read many opinions about O2,some are pro,some are contra.Can any one tell me frankly,is i8000 so bad phone?Is the Wi-fi conection realy buggy,losing the signal even you are near a router?Has it just 50Mb free Ram using WM 6.5?Can't watch the Youtube online,because the resolution is so awful?
Now I'm very confused.I don't know to buy this phone or not.Has anyone a better solution for the same price? Thanks in advance.

Alan, 24 Feb 2010Hi.. I Know this phone have handwritting recognition, does it include chinese handwritting in ... moreYes, and it works very well, both with the system setup for hand writing (although it is easier to use a "pen" for writing sms messages in Chinese by hand, you can also use your finger directly), and with third party systems such as Pleco. I bought the Omnia II in HK and use it for simplified Chinese without any problems.
I am in need of a third party auto answering & recording software for my I8000 Omnia II. Please help.

None of the staff samsung has put in can be deleted completely. Go to setting and u will find option to unload touchwiz and/or samsung today. This will give you approx 90+ mb free ram and the original wm6.1 look & feel(not at all touch friendly)
