Im very much feeling very dishearten and disappointed with Samsung that what kind of a stupid phone they have manufactured, i think this is a very shame and carelessness of the a big brand like Samsung.They have made people fool around by selling a false and malfunctioned device which creates irritation,high blood pressure, tension, frustration and very very sad to its buyers.This is first time i have baught any samsung device and for the very first time it disappointed a lot to me and very pethatic sometimes.
so, a sincere,truthfull,earnest and deep hearted advise to all those people who are making their mind to buy this phone that - "please don't buy this" .
i use this phone nd im aving sm kinda problems wit it. like sometimes it just gets stuck,it does'nt function until i put it off nd on nd it gets annoyin

i don't know what happened to
your phone that you cant play videos
on utube! =(
maybe the wifi connection
if too slow/weak!
i had the same issue before...
i did know that i can play videos
on it on utube...when i eat to a
certain cafe and got bored
eating i decided to watch utube
videos to get rid of my
boredom, sad to say i cant watch
the video cause it says connected but
still i cant see any images moving...
but when i got to my school
and try to on my wifi and watch
utube! then BOOM! it played as usual!
it's a matter of WIFI connection!
maybe you cant play the video cause the
connection is too slow/weak!!!
Anonymous, 09 Dec 2009hi,i did check all the fields on in the internet settings but still it won't play even the mob... moreI dont think its the settings. I have the same problem (among many other software problems with this phone). If you search the internet, it is full of forums of people who cannot play youtube videos and a ton of recommendations by other users that do not work.
It all comes down to what everyone has been saying. The OS of this phone is not straightforward, it is not intuitive (unless you want to do basic phone things that 25 euro phones also do).
The good engineers at samsung need to come out and address these issues ASAP. They also need to make official the new firmware and explain what it does and what it does not.
We kindly request that Samsung issues a statement on GPS and Navigation problems, (NOT)Playing youtube videos, broken youtube video playback (bad qaulity), the new firmware, java application problems.
Also Samsung was supposed to be developing their own applications for the JET, but nothing has been announced yet.
It seems that with symbian, windows and now their own smartphone OS, they forgot they even produced this phone.
can the jet have the same facebook widget like the corby where notifications, messages, wall post can pop up?
it sure is a very nice phone. I'm so looking forward in buying this phone. Hope i can get one before my birthday :D

Anonymous, 07 Dec 2009is it possible to install Skype on this phone?yes, i dont know how but i'm buying one tomorrow from 3 and it has skype on...
What kind of Operating System (OS)does S8000 jet have ? It is not mentioned in its specifications.
TO ALL JET USER HAVING
DIFFICULTY IN WATCHING UTUBE.
if you cant play the video
on utube check your internet settings.
go to MENU and click INTERNET and
then go to Preferrences and
make sure everything is turned ON!!!
hope it helps!!!
mine is working fine!!! so much!!
if it wont help you,still you
cant play videos on utube, the
reason is YOUR WI-FI connection
is too SLOW...find the spot that
has FAST/STRONG signal of WI-FI..
got the same prob before, but it is
the fault of WEAK WI-FI CONNECTION
in the area!!!
Jade, 07 Dec 2009=) i wouldnt say that its a smartphone i cant wait for the new aemo OS and also the new UI... moreOf course it's no smartphone i was being ironic, it's just a feature phone, which the developer advertises as being BETTER than a smartphone, yet users complain about it not having important basic applications
Dan, 08 Dec 2009When you go to "GPS position" in phone settings, it will locate your position automatically. ... moreRegarding GPS I have managed after days of trying to install route 66 so I just use that (Navigation from menu) and I honestly do not want to even view again that GPS screen.
Regarding youtube, i have given up I think. It is just not possible to do.
Maybe it is my firmware. I have s8000XXIG3 and below that it says S8000OXCIG1.
But not sure if i want to upgrade to the new one because A. dont know if I will lose any data and B. Dont know if the new firmware will have any functions that will become worse than what they are in my current firmware
Jet: No Youtube - N, 08 Dec 2009I see the reply you gave to another post regarding GPS. But it does not explain anything
87... moreWhen you go to "GPS position" in phone settings, it will locate your position automatically. Of course, it may take some time to locate it. You must be patient. You may think the UI is not good enough. That's understandable.
I have no problem in playing Youtube since I have bought it. I just use wifi or GPRS, click the Youtube widget, it plays all videos.
Some people have problems with Youtube with unidentified reason. Differnet users may have different reasons. It is difficult to tell whether it is the problem of the phone or not. Therefore, I suggest to start from the very beginning (reset AP in your PC) to solve the problem. It may take you 1 or 2 minutes to reset it. Some people may think it is unacceptable.
janine, 04 Dec 2009i think this phone is gr8 and works really well...there's no need to worry abt getting a new one.can u tell me,it is good to buy
Dan, 08 Dec 2009I suggest you to remove your wifi AP from Jet. Reset the AP name and password in your PC. Af... moreI see the reply you gave to another post regarding GPS. But it does not explain anything
87.677777% of jet buyers have not managed to use GPS (amongst a thousand other things). Of course, I guess, he knows that he should be outside... However even when outside, how do you tell the phone to start looking for satellites. Certainly it does not start on its own every time you are outside... For wifi for example, you click on the wifi widget, then it says "tap here to activate." And you tap to activate.
So, how do you activate GPS? That is the question my friend. There is an answer. But how many of the Jet users know it. Less than 5%. The rest cannot figure it out. Not because they are not capable. They would have been able to do this on any other brand with closed eyes, but not the samsung jet. Virtually Impossible.
Even more impossible, almost no people have achieved to play youtube vides. They can access the site, they can see the video page but the video will not start. How do you do it? Even an old piece of crap x brand 50 euro basic phone can play youtube videos. But not the samsung jet.
How does Apple, from the very first phone they ever EVER make, they manage to make browsing so easy and so SO SO good, and with Samsung, after a thousand phones, the Jet cannot play youtube videos or enable GPS???
