thanks everyone for their helpful advice.
innov8 users , tell me this : can you just use the gps service for free. i don't want to see a charge showing up on my cell phone bill to see that i had to pay for my gps service. i rather it be free. i heard that there is this hacking software called GARMIN? is this built in this phone or you gotta download this? thanks again guys!
btw, i am not subscribed to any internet service on my plan, i am just paying for cellphone service and for internet i just look for hotspots.
also, i have to ask this again, have any of you played a movie straight from a torrent site of an .avi film format onto this phone? someone told me that this is no problem. others have told me that you must convert .avi movies into mp4 files.

Anonymous, 30 Apr 2009the gps thing. do you need to turn on wi fi for the gps to work? or just turn on the gps and... moreIf you use with A-GPS(assisted GPS) then you need to get conected by Wi-Fi or GPRS. If you use a program like Route66 you don't need any conection to the Internet. The software gets all the information it needs from the internal GPS.
I just asked help regarding a camera function but i forgot to mention the mobile detail....it is the Samsung i850 Innov8...would appreciate some help. thanks
I recently bought this new fascinating mobile camera....quite balanced in everything i must say, u never get enough of exploring in it. However, when i looked for the specs before buying it, i failed to notice that the camera functions miss the zooming function, which is NOT part of the camera settings i'm afraid and although the 8MP work out fine, this is meant to be used within a small perimiter i'm afraid. If anyone can lead me to a diff setting, kindly let me know, as for the rest this is a modern jewel to carry.

This phone is awesome. I've owned it for 2 weeks now. Tons of application you can download for it. Lots of great features like the 8mp camera, the video editor and the photo river. The contacts list and the calendar has all the things I needed. Wifi is cool. GPS is a huge plus.
I bought this unit in the Philippines, and the only downside is, I didn't think the users manual was complete enough both the online or the printed quick guide version. It did discuss all the basic features, but I was looking for some hints on what the different icons meant. I'm new to the symbian interface, so this would have helped me a lot. For example, the message box that blinked at the top of the screen.
There are apparently bugs in the firmware. Maybe am just doing it wrong, but i can't seem to organize the files in the image gallery. And the settings for the camera would not save. Am hoping samsung releases a new firmware very soon.
got everything on it but no stop watch.
I bought this handphone today from Nokia 5800 to Samsung I8510 INNOV8 so far good will be back with more info soon.......
to all, thanks for the comments.
so for the .avi movies, i just convert them into mp4 files and i should be able to watch movies on the i8510.
i plan to upload some tv shows onto this phone. just good to have some movies handy while you wait for the bus etc...i am not super picky about the quality of the movie, as long as i can watch a movie on the i8510.
I loved this phone. Just getting used to symbian.
laughing, 28 Apr 2009will this phone play .avi files that i have downloaded from torrent sites? thanks.the answer is no. ive tried it and the resolution of those avi files from torrents sites is too high.
download 'super' (type it in google) and downsize the resolution, but keep the video in AVI.
and 3gp is never the best format!
laughing, 28 Apr 2009will this phone play .avi files that i have downloaded from torrent sites? thanks.no...u need to convert it using the software(pc suit cd) given with the phone during u bought it. converting in mp4 also can read the file by this phone.but i think it is better u convert it into divx file.if u use avi file without convert it before, of course your phone can't read the movie.i mean can not support file format. this is because the resolution download file is not match with the phone.
Actually .3gp works best on this phone.
