Thank you, Nokia-2-Samsung User, for your opinion sharing to the world.
Hi. I'm considering getting this phone. Is the slider solid and strong, or does it get loose and wobbly over time? Thanks.

Finally i got this mobile ,Evry thing is FANTASTIC but i have a pro... moreHello, to use your GPS service in your mobile phone, it's not necessary to use the GPS+ (it only helps to fasten up the pick-up of gps signals). Each time you download gps data using the GPS+, it stores the data for 7 days. Simply put, the GPS+ is like your PC Startup program, loading the program for quick access whenever needed.
To setup the GPS+ access point, it must be your sim card mms, wap or internet connection. NOT WIFI. Naturally, it should display this option. Just seletc one of them. Connect and download GPS data whichich will last for 7 days (maybe for the first time). It may not be necessary to always download GPS data again via the GPS+ because your phone can conveniently pick up gps signals as long as you are in an open area (seeing the open sky) and not in between tall buildings or invisible sky.
Most importantly, before you can use your gps on your phone (forget about the GPS+ here for now), you need to set up your POSITIONING SERVER as follows:
Menu => Setting => General => Positioning =>
1. Positioning Method (select only INTEGRATED GPS),
2.a. Positioning Server Use (Select AUTOMATIC),
b. Access Point (by default or select manually,
SIM CARD internet connection)
c. Server Address (should appear automatically
if SIM CARD internet connection is chosen.)If not, off the phone. Remove SIM CARD (and any other card), on phone and reset phone to factory setting. At end, insert SIM CARD, and check if it Server Address appears automattically. Otherwise contact your SIM CARD provider or search the internet for it.
Server address is something like this:
(the above is for Movistar in Spain)

It will drain the battery faster than usual? If so, where can I find sumsung themes? So I don't have t install nokia themes on it.. Thx in advance!!
Very good phone btw...
yehia, 17 Apr 2009do you mean 2200 Ryal for the 8GB or 16GB ?!, here in UAE 2400 AED for 8 GB New, i got offer 1... moreI got my 16GB only for AED 2,100 here in satwa, if you want i can buy it for you. call me if you want 0506252759.
I have had this phone for about 3 months a tbh i was expecting more from it, the phone i had before this was a nokia N95, although the nokia wasnt built sturdy and fell apart after 18 months, some things on it were better, for example i thought the camera on the nokia was a lot better, there are more setting in the innov8 but everytime you play with the settings to get it just right, you exit camera and it doesnt save any of them, night time shots suck, and zooming is terrible. Also you have to hold it still for ages and wait for the image to load on the screen before moving the camera after it takes.
Some things on it are rather slow, for example, the music player, loading it up, closing it down, going to playlists, waiting for a song to play after pressing play, or next, or back, everything about it is really really slow.
It's only crashed once, but since last week it broke altogether, everytime i turn it on it turns itself back off after about 5 seconds of main display and if i put the sim card in it wont turn on at all.
I think if i could go back in time, i wouldnt buy this phone, its heavy, way too big, takes ages to load videos, pictures, open camera, everything.
Yes it has every application you'll ever need, but I think i would have picked the nokia n96 or the sony ericsson over this if i could.
JKOOL, 19 Apr 2009I must say that I am loving everything I read in the reviews about this phone. I would like to... morethe answer is this model phone.the spec that u need is inside this phone...totally same...

To Expert Users Please,
Finally i got this mobile ,Evry thing is FANTASTIC but i have a problem with the GPS, I can't use the GPS, its every time i log into GPS + its asking about " Define Access connection " and i'm aready have a Wlan network in my home and its aready defined on the phone, is that msg 'Define Access connection " about the network 3G?? i mean connection through the sim card its self ( 3G) ???
Thanks in advanced
I must say that I am loving everything I read in the reviews about this phone. I would like to ask someone who currently owns one of these mobiles to give me their honest opinion on this gadget.
I have currently a Sony Ericsson P1i and it is totally different from what the folks here have posted. They give it a terrible look and it is not like that at all. I just wished they would have made it more compatible with more softwares. I need a phone that has Divx/xvid, flash support, very good camera, sweet audio, capable video recording/playback and so on. I am eager to know what your honest opionion is on this phone. Stop bashing other phones that people like, I would have no problem with the google maps as I would have no need at all to use that software, so no problems there.
when i turn into music menu and choose 'playlists' or 'all songs' why it takes more times to out from it? actually i had bought 16G model and i put in about 7G for music only...the system becomes very slow to out from 'playlists' and 'all songs'.i also have memory card 8G but i only use 2G only.someone have a idea to avoid from that?
I am not a person to be easily amassed, but this i8510 has amazed me, I keep finding something else it does, and the operating software is so stable, Symbian I understand well what ever it works. The power lasts well enough even using the GPS. I have taken some lovely pictures of Diesels, and the macro was excellent when I had to picture a faulty carburettors auto choke assembly, which has left my colleges in disbelief I ever took them on my mobile. In the past for reliability I have usually had Samsung or Nokia mobiles and yet to be disappointed, however I did make one expensive mistake it was my BBerry Stm, problems or what, I think I fell for the BlackBerry advertising, still soon got shot of that thank you. So yes I am very pleased with my Samsung i8510, and I hope this short message has helped.
I found it at Axium Telecom for 2200 SAR for the 16 gig, and they'll give you another "little" phone .. i don't know if Route66 comes with it or not , but i think so .
Darwish, 16 Apr 2009it's not available in Egypt, bas it's around 2,200 SR in Saudi Arabia.do you mean 2200 Ryal for the 8GB or 16GB ?!, here in UAE 2400 AED for 8 GB New, i got offer 1600 For 16GB Used one . what do u think , is it good deal ?
Reply to Maya 87:
I looked in eBay to see the prices of the innov8's and to my surprise, on average, it seems higher now than when I bought mine 3 months ago. I have the 16gb. Similar phones(ie SE C905) has their prices $100-150 cheaper now. So I guess I made the right choice.
