i tot this was the perfect anti-iphone answer.
1) phn prompts u to del smses after jus 300 (i cant find the option to store it anywhr in my 2gb int memory or 16gb mem card - (wtfff)
my previous SE w902 cld store smses in the memory card for MONTHS and thr was NO NEED to delete anything at all!
2) first 30smses seem to b AUTOMATICALLY stored in ur sim card and thr doesnt seem to b a way arnd this bug (wtf)
3) video/audio playback is way too soft. level 14? cmon. they shd up it to at least 17 or 18 and let us decide which level is too high for us - cant hear nuts when ur on a bus or on a train (wtf)
4) recent contacts list disappears randomly - requires restart of phone which erases the list which defeats the purpose of the list (wtf)
5) cant surf facebook/hotmail full site and wifi signals are always poor - always 1 or 2bars max - never full (wtf)
if anyone has a solution to the abv problems pls enlighten me - or this phone is history - ergo iphone still wins.
John Smith :p, 10 Aug 2009Well here it goes, I really want the Jet but my friends keep telling me wait for the nokia E7... moreNokia uses symbian OS. Jet is a feature phone. That depends on what you need. If a feature phone is fine, then go for Jet as the display is awesome. When I play HD AVI movies in it, it looks even better than a PC LCD monitor.
The center button is a menu/task manager button.
Well here it goes, I really want the Jet but my friends keep telling me wait for the nokia E72 so i am pretty confused about which to get :s so please help me out with that. and by the way is the center button on the Samsung jet a GO BACK button or a MENU button ? o any other options would be great my budget is 500 $

To all fellow S8000 Jet users: do you notice that when you record a video, and it saves it, for example as video #0008 and you then delete it, the next video you take is saved as #0009? Does this mean that the previous video is not deleted and is saved in the memory still? If anyone can help or clarify this please reply! Thanks.
chani, 10 Aug 2009best phone in the market ultra fast procesadorI would say that JET can become (already is?) one of the best phones on the market if Samsung listens to it's users in order to solve some problems. Nokia and Apple are very aware of this specially nokia on latest models.
It's all about support...
Hi guys, I wonder if any of you can help:
I have just bought a Samsung Jet and it is branded to Orange. I have an O2 sim card though....Can you rebrand it to O2 or just to a basic firmware?
Does this firmware then allow me to go on O2's mobile internet amongst other things?

Riecky, 09 Aug 2009the size, look, speed, camera, screen, touch performance and good battery-life is really amazi... moreI don't think there is any phone, or feature phone or smartphone with built-in worldwide maps so you won't be lost in the desert. I believe all of them need to be connected to a server to pinpoint your location in a map. Only car GPS can have maps downloaded into its memory. Correct me if I'm wrong.
the size, look, speed, camera, screen, touch performance and good battery-life is really amazing..
but the text handling, browsing and gps features and performance is too too bad.
generally the phone is good for any user how will not use the gps and web browsing, because of the screen and touch prformance and all athor features on this phone.
but when talking about the regular use, the phone is .... (yuk)
there is no text selection, then there is no copy and paste text, i can't handle my text (in sms, mms and notes) and can't take text or pics from the browser (i think this is a must for every smart phone),
and for the gps... i have to be connected to a server just to get or download my location (what if i travling in the desert and have to get my location ????!!!)
correct me if i wrong pleeeeease
I am really disappointed from this phone (it is the first time to think that i made the wrong choice) :(
I used to use a less catgory price phones which do more than that ..
Is this PLASTIC build?? it may be easily broken in your pocket...it's discouraging.
Thanks for the answer
Do you know were i can download the scandivan firmware, S8000XBIG2?
Don't you lose everthing on the phone when you flash, but can you do a backup on NPS?
