    3.5mm jack sucks

    For some reason I never noticed this before, but the headphone jack in this phone is seriously flawed. None of my headphones, RCA cords, etc... will plug into it properly.

A Samsung rep who happens to be pretty high up the chain gave some subtle hints to return my Slide and wait patiently.

    Root Custom Dialer - BH_MAN Galaxy 1.6 R8

    Hello everyone, I did some customizing to the dialer in BH_MAN's Galaxy 1.6 R8 ROM. I've never been a big fan of the circular buttons on that dialer, and I also adjusted the menu logos to match the font color. It's quite simplistic, but if you're like me and don't want those circular buttons...
