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???
anja, 07 Dec 2009how do you flash your phone? could you explain? just go to the darkforest group site. ^__^

To use GPS, you must be in open areas. If you are inside a building, it won't find any satellites. Once you find the satellite(s), you'd better use wifi to download satellite data a few times (in GPS setting). After that, you can find more satelites and it can locate your position promptly.
Please try it.
What a stupid stupid phone. So Pissed.
I can access the internet. I can also access youtube. I click on a video, a new page comes up, it says connected but nothing plays..... The play button never becomes clickable. What in the world is going on? What is this, rocket science???? Anyone knows why the video want play?
So damn stupid.
Also what about GPS? Why cant I just turn GPS on? I dont mean navigation. Just the GPS, to find the satellites for example and your position. Where is the Scan Satellites button???? You go to the GPS screen, it says 0 satellites but no option to scan for satellites.
If you havent bought this phone, dont buy it. A waste of money.
Anonymous, 07 Dec 2009because its smarter than smartphone =p. btw i have 5530.=) i wouldnt say that its a smartphone
i cant wait for the new aemo OS and also the new UI of symbian in 2010 NOkia is developing very fast

and samsung jet has a good camera which i really liked
got the jet 1 week back. have a weard poblem.. the up volume key and the gate key keep getting stuck and stop working.... the back panel is so tight that once u press the camera button, the keys get stuck and stop working.. u have to remove the panel and then place it back for it to work... bad manufacturing ;-(

about the amoled technology by samsung

Can seeI am thinking about fashing my phone to the new firmware but I have read that in the version youtube is also bugged. So who knows. Samsung has drunk the all silence water. Browsing really sucks. GPS (just getting your location, altitude, etc) is a huge problem. Navigation, forget about it. If you manage to download route66 then you sincerely deserve congradulations. The battery sucks. The signal is poor, quality is bad. And the oily patch on the toucscreen that you cannot get rid off is a pain in the...
Also do you risk flashing your phone? Especially when samsung does not say anything about it. Will it lose your data? Will anything become worse? Who knows?

because i will buy this device and for me its really important to watch youtube videos and if they are lagging then this is really crappy
do you think an update would correct this problem?

The latest one is youtube bugged but easy java. The other one is bad java but full gps. The other is good at this but bad at that. Are these people serious?
Anonymous, 02 Dec 2009im sure lot of people here write negatives about the phone without even seen or used it b4....... moreWhat is a lie?
That its battery sucks? Do you think 3 days average use is good? That Samsung tried to pass it as a Smartphone ("Smarther than a smartphone") confusing buyers and retailers alike? That there are no apps for it and java apps dont work? That the cube is stupid? That it lacks several basic features such as copy paste, threaded sms, limited sms number, etc, etc, that for some people (maybe not lucky you) it has corrupted software and functions that do not work? What lie are you talking about?
That its OS is not intuitive even for the average to good phone users? Take youtube videos for example? They never play. How many people were enquiring about this. What about GPS. It sucks. You cant even turn it on. It has two options. GPS Position and GPS + Setting and neither does anything. Not even a button to search for satellites. How many people enquired about this? What about Navigation? I can go on for hours in regards to specific functions that in other phones are as simple (i.e. turning on the GPS can be done by a toddler in Nokia phone) where in the Jet you have to spend hours in forums, etc,
Another problem. Over 80% of units have an oily patch behind the touchscreen seen only insight, lightbulb light, when phone is off. Even if you take it for an exchange, chances are the next one will have the same problem. Also for those who suggest to take it to the provider for a battery replacement, dont even bother. Avg battery life is less than 3 days. Thats not a faulty battery. Thats what samsung made it like.
that post about david pye is brilliant....
and i agree that you cant expect longer than 4 days max with any new phone. it takes a lot for them to run
Hi.After a lot of research and dilly-dallying I have decided to spend an additional 3K and go for the B7610 (OminaPRO) instead. Although the Jet promises to be a great phone in looks and features, I thought of sticking around with a known OS as well as an optional good-old hardware qwerty keyboard! This is just my personal decision and hope it pays off in the long run...
