Go ahead and buy your crap W995.
I have owned over 20 mobiles since 1995 and I can say the INNOV8 is the BEST phone ever.
I really wanted to buy this cellphone but since it was about P6,ooo more expensive than the "great reviews" N82, i went for N82 especially that i haven't owned a slide phone and scared that slide phones would break right away once it falls. and one thing more, Innov8 doesn't really look attractive.It's all black. they should have a good design like the ultratouch or a design that would match with W995. But, W995 is really a powerful cellphone.

Thanks for your suggestion and info.
At least now I know 1 more app called "SmartSign" that can sign the app.
I've read some of the post and just wondering whether upgrading to any of the firmware voids warranty?
Is there any that does not void the warranty to help the battery issue?
I would like to know before I purchase one.
It'll be great if someone can tell me.

Put your cert and key into the root directory on your PHONE (not the PC) and install SmartSign to your phone and sign all apps on the phone instead of the PC.
Google SmartSign for the program.
Once again, if you sign an app now with your cert it will be good forever. After 2012 you won't be able to use the key, thats all, simple, yes??

How do you get a bit less than 2 hours charging time for your INNOV8 ?? So far I only get 3 hours for a full charge on my unit.

I have my dev cert and key also but it also last for a few years only. I'm wondering that is it possible for us to get a longer period of dev cert and key ??
Another thing, after reading the post this morning. I have question about the "the APP will still work because its already been signed." replied to YTB.
If I sign the app ready and not install it, then after year 2012 (example taken from YTB's post) will I be able to install the app ??
By the way, is there any website you can recommend for getting the dev cert and key (not in complicated procedure needed) ??

I can guarantee that the AC Adaptor charges the cell faster. It takes a bit less than 2 hours for full charge.
On the other hand, The USB somehow takes more time, which is not exactly measured by me, in exact charge time.
In any case, AC Adaptor is faster...

But, I have to mention the DISTANCE. 1 Meter or maximum 2 meters away from the subject, & you'll get useable shot... Beyond that, the LED Flash can't work that good.

I have a certificate also ...........it means you can sign your own apps until 2012, after that the APP will still work because its already been signed.
I waited over 3 weeks for mine but was well worth it.
Just want to ask, recently I got my dev cert and key from the internet. I found out that the cert will expire on year 2012 from now which it's valid only for 3 years.
I'm curious that if I use this dev cert and key to sign the app, is it means that the app can only last for 3 years as well ?? After year 2012 I cannot use the app anymore ?? Or I still can use the app even the it's expired ??
Or is it means that I only allow to sign the app for within 3 years ?? And I still can use the app even it's expired ??
Which one is correct ?? Somebody please correct me.
Thank you very much.

Lets face it we all know that bigger screen Innov8 always consumes battery compared to a smaller screen eg E71. We all also know 8mp even on a point & Shoot camera also uses more battery than a 3.2mp camera right. Those r just 2 things that we all know consumes battery not forgetting faster processor. If u want a phone that has almost everything that technology has to offer than battery might b an issue if u turn on everything. If u want a phone that has very good battery consumption than better to get a non colour display screen eg. the older models and belive me those can last for a few days talk time alone with heavy usage. I believe that people always blame the equipment rather than themselves. The equipment is for us to learn to use so dont expect all of them to behave the same way.

is there a software i could download that shows your messages in chat format...like in se w series chat? thanks
does the firmware update only increase the standby time, or does it also make the talk time increase?
