For Egypt,best maps are made for Igo 8.
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2011Moderator of GSMArena, why are you letting this joker promote and distracting your readers her... moreYea right..mr "anonymous". At least i say my name here.
FIY, modaco community is the best in the world for windows mobile devices,next to xda. Even samsung recommends it.And who are you to question me?If you don't like the things i do here, be my guest and try to do them for me. I would be happy.
Another thing, Secany, a guy who works for samsung, released on modaco official and custom roms. So, before open your mouth and say stupid things, ask around.
I always give correct links, i alwasy try to be as objective as a person can be. I also give an alternative for the people that are not that much into tech like me, and help them personally. If you have a problem with that, i suggest you shut down your pc and leave it that way. You really have a way on NOT to make friends, even virtual ones.
I already made a tutorial on how to flash new roms on omnia2(official or custom), but, again, if it looks simple for me, alot of you guys didn't understood. With a simple operation you can easily brick your phone and you will blame me for it. That's why i rather do it myself over remote control(teamviewer to be more exact).
If only you would read back a couple of pages...but again...you are just lazy and close-minded.
you know nothing about me, but still you're bashing me.
Way to go!!

He cannot make things simple and always ask to contact him privately funny,,,,very funny. Ever wonder why ??????????????

Trust me,samsung uses the same procedure:)(with octans, but on higher scale).
Just google modaco i8000 and you will find the best community for omnia 2. Try it.
amd, 14 Mar 2011In which address I can download nfs shift full version game?NFS SHIFT won't work on Omnia2. Video drivers incompatibility.Latest NFS that can be played on Omnia 2 is UNDERCOVER.
Damn slow, no updates or upgrades available. Trying to get updates on the net dosent recogonize the fone. Bought it at jumbo electronics at mall of emirates, dubai. Dissapointed. my mobile ID i8000(00 0000 0000)???
This is the best Windows Mobile phone I've ever used. It gave a great kick to all three phones I had before
Anonymous, 14 Mar 2011Is 6.5.3 a official rom or just a cookup rom. using kies return with a negative update and app... moreI don't use official roms.I create mine and it's working great. Using the I8000NXXJI1 PDA, with JJ1 eboot, JI1 PRO csc and JJ1 Phone.
I repeat, it's an ultralite rom(most of default samsung apps are removed,including start menu).This way i have 123 mb ram and 330 mb rom free at boot.After installing all apps i need(Spb mobile shell, resco file explorer, office 2010, UCBrowser and Opera mobile 10, resco photo manager,adoble flashlite 3.1,netcf 3.7.8,youtube,palringo messenger, Sktools,s2u2,a few tweaks and about 10-12 games-mostly strategies) i have 80-85 mb ram free and about 280 mb rom.
So,i say yea, o2 rocks. Improved and updated drivers, super smooth, no lag.The only thing that really sucks is the lack of flash for windows mobile and the fact samsung dropped the support for winmo devices.
best phone with wmob i ever had ...go on samsung...and you will be the best
Lawrence, 09 Mar 2011Not a fanboy, but a true connaiseur of o2.Already replied about the touch quality.Don't forget... moreIs 6.5.3 a official rom or just a cookup rom. using kies return with a negative update and apparantly not as simply n straight forward as u mentioned in your earlier post, worst of all samsung company is not aware of any so call 6.5.3 and would not repair the bricked phone if attempt to upgrade to this unofficial version even if still with warranty as it is illegal upgrade. Any comment. Also if the country that has not have the official 6.5.3 u will get a very efficient touch screen phone that cannot be used as a phone as th local telo has problems with 6.5.3 google this and you will read about this problems. So like u say a omnia II sucks without 6.5.3 BTW omnia II user be honest here and tell me when was the last update you have for your phone. Samsung has pulled its resorces to making android samsung phone and omnia II users are left to fend for themself no further upgrade is coming and soon omnia II will just die of old age. Those considering to purchase this phone best of luck this situation is not just with samsung but other brand too. final words before I die too. this was a great phone but all good things comes to an end. Amen.

How much different or better is the 8000 omnia compared to an 8000 jet? To me theyre exactly the same. The only difference Ive noticed is the omnia is about $200 more than the jet. Is it really worth $200 more? I dont think so. Id rather buy a 8500 wave which is selling for about the same price as the omnia which has far superior features than the omnia.

H, 08 Mar 2011I would be grateful if anybody tell me the touch screen quality of the phone.
[I'm not asking... moreNot a fanboy, but a true connaiseur of o2.Already replied about the touch quality.Don't forget this is a resistive display, so you have to "feel"the touch.This doesn't mean you have to press it hard. It takes a litle to get usesd with it.
with older roms, i have only 2 words: it sucks.Older roms mean wm 6.1.
With newer 6.5 and .6.5.3(especially 6.5.3.) the touch quality is greatly improved, is fast, smooth, almost as it should've been from the start.
I would be grateful if anybody tell me the touch screen quality of the phone.
[I'm not asking this to the dumb iPhone users].
Any extra comments about the features compared with HTC phone will be highly appreciated as I'm going to buy this awesome beauty within few days.
