    as in the hold volume up, home and power when you start then release power when the "samsung I9000" screen displays?

    Yeah I tried that a heap of times, just booted normally each time, however it would stay on that samsung screen on and off for as long as I held the buttons.

    Had the same issues as you mate and I was pulling my hair out.

    This vid explains it all pretty clear, worked for me.

    Can anyone recommend me a good case for the phone?

    Something sturdy, not too thick, and that I don't need to "open it" to see who is calling.

    I ordered this but it will only be delivered at the end of October, so I want to cancel the order

    Keep an eye out for covers and accessories that come bundled with 2-3 screen protectors as bonus gifts. My mesh cover came with 3 screen protectors as a "surprise event" :lol:

    The mesh cover is a very snug fit and doesn't make the phone look or feel any bigger, best purchase for my phone thus far.

    Thanks all, ordered a mesh AND a sgp case (since I read great reviews about it). Shipping for the sgp case from US was $2 ;)

    I don't know why the SGP cases would get rave reviews. The case i got was dogshit. Looked like it was coated in oil, and the screen protector that came with it, while well cut and firm, wouldn't stay stuck around the edges at all.

    Mesh case on the other hand is great.

    Samsung Australia sits around with their thumb up their ass and seem to have blown their software development budget on advertising.

    The only reason my phone is working properly right now is due to Samsung Canada :thumbup:

    2.2 is taking a lot longer than promised, there is lag issues, gps issues with some people, etc. Most people can't even get the samsung software (Kies) to recognise when their phone is plugged in, I personally had luck on the third pc i tried.

    Once you get everything running properly though it's a beast of a phone, but getting to that point can be frustrating.

    Yes the 1 click lag fix available from the app market. ZIt's a bout a 10 minute fiddle to get it up and running, but some people report it makes things significantly faster

    Should I buy one down the line, and from what i've currently learnt from this thread...buy a case for it, d/l the new 2.2 if needed, then look around the web or ask you guys for any more of little secret apps for lag and etc.

    Is this about it?...and this is also my first "smart" phone :).

    A case of alcohol beverages and hoping both you and the girl forget about the phone altogether may also help in you with your/her problem mate :).

    If you don't have a Gmail account get one. It's by far the simplest way to get all your contacts off your iPhone. Sync with Google in iTunes before you switch over (unfortunately existing events in your caledar won't sync, it only syncs new events you create once you set syncing up).

    Can someone give me a linky to these mesh cases so I can check em out?

    Also, recently installed the voodoo lag fix which is great for fixing lag, however I have noticed it is draining the shit out of my battery. Like im not even getting a day out of it with very light use. I would like to uninstall the voodoo lag fix, but the way I understand it I have actually acquired a new file system. What is the best way to get rid of voodoo lag fix?
