i'm now using S8000 (not S8003)
i bought it from Hong Kong.
everything is fine except no easy jave installation.
so can i update to latest europe firmware with easy java?
if i do so, will my 3G connectivity will be lost?
anyone who bought Jet from Hong Kong has updated your firmware to Europe version? any problems?
please be advice...
urgent wish to update...
does anybody knows how many sms's doe the jet take i only get 200-230 and than it ask me to delet something
@alrawi : it's just software region version (8003 for asia, 8000 others)
@cheda-bgd : maybe your phone switched to offline mode profile ?
Well i bought this at around 249 euro and with bonus 8GB micro sd, no contract, unlocked
I can't actually complain with this low price, don't expect this phone on par with iphone with half price difference
j bought s8000 to my son a 2 month ago and it worked for 2 weeks. then, suddenly it lost network, like it's switched to "off-line" mode. everything is working; camera, mp3.. but -"no network". as it was brought from abroad, no warranty in here. at 2 repair shops they could't do nothing...a great disappointment! work for only 2 weeks for 425eur!! good buy samsung. newer again!
can you update your jet with the latest firmware at the samsung service cente, here in philippines?

Blackberry, Apple, Google
It will be a new era of mobile phone use with an emphasis on connectivity. Anything from internet and tv/radio to your family doctor reports and applications that will blow one's mind.
The new era of mobile phones will also see these phones connected with independent electronics in order to act as tools and devices that mobile phones where never meant or imagined to be. One small example will be to measure your blood sugar for example.
In 2011 we will see some of today's big phone brads slip into obscurity as they would have failed to recognize the importance of connectivity and applications.
There will also be newcomers to the industry which will help excel development beyond imagination.
2011 will be the year of the mobile phone.
A year where certain phones will enter the pantheon of technology and make history.
2011 will be a year where phones such as the Jet will have no place.
can anybody tell me which among these 2 phones is much better?? (talking about samsung jet and samsung star wifi).. coz im planning to buy new one but i cant decide which phone to buy.. its not about the price but its the quality (easy use of specs or apps and lifespan of the battery).. need ur opinion asap.. thank u very much..
hardware is awesome, software is awful but i guess you all know that by now..haha
seems like can't play CafeWorld on this Samsung Jet. Anyone can advice? Thanks.
I rate low for this fone, sure the screen is great, i like watching movies with this one, the sound quality good, not great
but wifi is a battery killer, ON for 2 hours, and 2 bars gone.
music player interface sucks, can't make playlist as easy as sony ericcson, to those that already have jet and 1000 MP3 inside, you know what i mean.
there's no dedicated next and prev button, so i must take out my fone from my pocket, unlock, then next and prev.
No music search function in music player, must scroll and scroll, and scroll (50X) from the top, yup from the top not from current music playing.
Limited apps and games space, wtf only 9 MB shared memory, my fone have 2GB internal and 8gig external memory card, why they limit the apps size. I read a solution using TkExplorer though, never try it before.
Using motion gate is not easy, try 10 minutes just to snap the first screen, i gave up
youtube on wifi sucks, some said something to do with firewall, i asked my network admin, he said no firewall, secure your own pc. but on free wifi at cafe, sometime i can view youtube.
I set up a private wireless ad-hoc network for internet sharing, well this fone did detect the network but say "No Response from AP", connecting from another laptop is a breeze.
I get asia version (8003), max downloadable widget : 2, 1 already pre-installed, the weather widget. well, most available widget is useless
Normal call and video call use the same name, Video Call, by intuition, the first is normal, so there's a typo problem. You can check it when typing a phone number, press the second picture at the bottom
Last, my initial sw version is S8003DX-IK1, which is the newest in asia
What version of flash player does a brand new Jet support?
Can you update the flash palyer for jet?
narciso, 01 Jan 2010i have this phone for a week.it's a great one but has a very short battery life.mine last for ... moreduble clik the massage recived and you will be able read the unread massages quick and directly.

vher, 05 Jan 2010@AD, try to upgrade your firmware, just google it and you will be able to find it, i had the s... moreI dont think the firmware upgrade will solve the problem. The average battery use of this phone should be around 2 days. If anyone's battery goes dead way faster than that, say in 12 hours for example, and without using the phone too much, then two things can be happening:
1. Faulty battery. Request to change it
2. You have your wifi and/or gps navigation turned on, or some other process running in the background. Press and hold the menu (cube) button to see what processes are running.
Upgrading the firmware will not help. Besides, the new firmware is not officially announced by samsung, it is not provided thru the PC suite and you will lose any settings or any applications you may have installed which really sucks.
The fact is that the battery is crappy but it should last around 2 days with minimum to average use.
also after the firmware update i tried playing songs after the battery was fully charged, 15hrs straight non-stop just lost 1 bar on the battery, then tried browsing for 4hrs, nothing changed from battery meter, then watch 2 movies, namely LOTR return of the king and The dark knight straight, just lost another bar from the meter, then made some calls and sms, battery lasted for a day and a half.
