Does this have other consequences? It looks like you are recommending installing a whole new OS. Will it remove features from Samsung, like Samsung Apps, Samsung-specific menus, etc?

comment Software for offline pedestrian navigation in New York
+1 for MapDroyd, but cmiiw, but for Google Maps, it sounds like you can't choose which locations are cached, it only cache the areas that you access the most (automatically). Since his fiancee is not from NYC most likely NYC is not what she access the most.

comment Does the alarm work when my phone is turned off?
tried it out like Matt suggested. It didn't go off. @Matt: In nokias (and some other old phones I don't remember) it would go off when the phone is off (and it still has battery of course)
