I use XP..........screw Vista it sucks and is just eye candy that you can get with XP also.
I have 3 computers and a laptop on a wifi network at home and they all run XP............
My neighbor asked me to fix his computer with Vista. I got so frustrated because nothing is where its supposed to be.
I know XP inside and out now after 8 years. Same as with Win98 and 3.11 back in early 90's.
I am staying with XP.......its rock solid now that the bugs are all out.
Dickless Cheney, 29 May 2009Snoop Another thing that seemed to help before I flashed it, was run a film in repeat mode... morehey me again at a diff comp...do u use vista?...or xp?...a time i went to update my old omnia's firmware and needed xp...which really sucked...so what do u use? (sry i'm being so paranoid)

Another thing that seemed to help before I flashed it, was run a film in repeat mode until the battery is exhausted and phone shuts down.
Then leave it off and charge it fully.
excercsing the battery seemed to help. but nothing like the firmware upgrade.

Did a test with the new firmware.
Watched one full length film...... 2 hours.
2 hours of listening to music.
about 90 minutes of talk time.
used camera to take about 60 shots and at the end of that still had 3 bars.
The new firmware ROCKS!!
Snoop, 29 May 2009hey man...whuts up?...is it an official firmware update from samsung...i'm mad scared of voidi... moreI was a bit hesitant also about flashing the firmware but it was a piece of cake and makes SOOO much difference.
Unbelievable. battery life has tripled and the UI is FAST...blazing fast even with another theme.
You can wait all year for Samsung to get some firmware out.
Dickless Cheney, 29 May 2009Since upgrading the firmware my battery life is now fantastic. After 4 days on standby only... morehey man...whuts up?...is it an official firmware update from samsung...i'm mad scared of voiding my warranty and effing up my phone
Dickless Cheney, 29 May 2009Since upgrading the firmware my battery life is now fantastic. After 4 days on standby only... moreHi. Please could you tell me which new firmware you have, and is it for 8Gb phone or 16Gb phone? Thanks.
irvinehooi, 29 May 2009So you means INNOV8 users are forced to use only those themes that bundled with samsung ?? ... morenah that's not what i am saying...sry i shud have specified...some of them slow down the phone...but frankly...u cud use whatever s60 theme u want...once it is innov8 compatible...juss that the boring, bland, disgusting ones that the phone ships with, optimises the ui speed, and there is no crashing or n e thing...but i also have to update my firmware so who knows?...i am looking to buy n97 to experience symbian touch...do u think it is a wise choice?...i love innov8...but i had an omnia...and i miss the touch feeling i had with it...but i also want qwerty...what are your views?
Best phone I ever had..............the photos astound people ........so no more carrying around a camera, also no more dedicated Navigation device (sold it and the camera).
Music sounds fantastic thru the speakers but I found a little trick.
The 3.5 minijack and an amplifier and some hi grade speakers in my garden and I have a portable jukebox.
My neighbors were astonished when they heard the sound and then showed them the phone plugged into the amp in the garden house.
Since upgrading the firmware my battery life is now fantastic.
After 4 days on standby only last one stripe.
if you want a longger battery life then turnoff or disable all the feature you dont use!!! there's a site where it guides you the things you need to disable.
now i got a question regarding the soft volume, there is a secret code *#0228# for the settings of the innov8. can somebody tell me which of the settings should i configure to make the calll/loud speaker and music player louder.
I dont know if someone else encounered this problem, but although i take very good care of my mobile set, it seems that dust particles are getting inside and can be seen on the screen. I dont know how they are getting in..and how easy it is for them to get in !!!!
Surely imposible to remove and clean :((
Touch Blue themes for INNOV8:
Snoop, 28 May 2009yes it is true...and some of the themes even slow the phone's performance as well. i live in t... moreSo you means INNOV8 users are forced to use only those themes that bundled with samsung ??
But I personally doesn't like the default bundled themes because it looks too plain and no color.
I use the iPhone theme found here "http://www.pizero.net/archives/418"
I also use the theme found here "http://www.symbianthemes.us/free,nokia/10417,touch_blue/"
Can somebody tell me will these themes will drain the battery life fast as well ??
Great phone . ALL IN ONE .
QUAD BAND +GPS + WIFI + GOOD CAMERA+ VERY NICE SOUND
ENOUGH MEMORY OF 16GB & EXPANDABLE THRU MICRO SD CARD
Look & feels good in hand.
one of the greatest phone i ever had.
Battery is also good in my case.
NO PROBLEM AT ALL.
irvinehooi, 28 May 2009Hi all, I've heard that when INNOV8 applying other than samsung bundled themes in this handset... moreyes it is true...and some of the themes even slow the phone's performance as well. i live in the caribbean and i own the 8gb innov8...amazing phone...but as everyone else said...poor battery life...but that's like the only down side. hey...if n e one has any questions to ask about the phone...ask me...i would be glad to help out with issues and queries
