Once moisture gets into the filmwhere then it will not work well at all. Can it be repaired? It`s got to repaired by someone who really knows what to do. Not by anyone on a trial and error basis! Thats the main reason I will not touch a second hand phone. Anyway stop throwing money, throw the phone and get a new one!
I hope in India Samsung Omnai GT I8000 Production has been stopped.
But they assured to provide Windows Mobile 6.5 updates.
Do u know how to get this in India......
I'm using Samsung Omnia II for past 1.5 years..
I used to get sweat more.. Bcoz of that after 3 months from the purchase it caught up wit Water Log. So, I gave to service center in RS Puram(Cbe), they tld i'll replace and give. They spoiled the calling key and they tld me to pay 1500 rupees. I paid but still the device is not workin properly so i gave it again(next day) in salem they tld that previous service center didnt do the service properly. So i called him and scolded him. Then that person(RS Puram-CoimbatorE service center) spoke wit salem service and they made a deal i think and the mobile has been repaired by salem service center guy and gave.. It worked nicely.. Since the cbe service center person didnt do well, my call button and end button becomes tight and also down the battery he spoiled the cover by heating... He dont knw hw to service.
Last month my touch didnt work well.. Its started malfunctioning.. I gve to service in cbe another center they are tellin it ll cost around 800 rupees to change but he is not telling clearly.. Again i gave it to salem before 3 weeks they are tellin 4000 rupees. touch have to replace and board..
Once mobile gets prob really its torturing.. better keep the mobile carefully...
[deleted post]I think you have hit one of Omnia`s classic problems. It a common soft wear fault. If it`s under warranty, take it Samsung`s service centre. If not, I`m afraid you might have to bin it. Don`t waste any more money trying to repair it. The repair will only be temporary and it will give you one problem after another.

Hp, HtC, samsung, nokia, toshiba,motorola, lg, apple...you name it. i got stuck on samsung, but none of them are perfect. Firt impression is wow, but when you start the daily usage, you find it's not the device you expected.And if you're not willing to do a litle tuning,you'll remain with the bitter taste. I said many times, it's a general market strategy...release a new gadget..make impression...but leave some bugs on it...release a new one, remove some of the old bugs, but let new ones..this way they get the chance to take your money :).
tahere, 11 Jun 2011I'm very sad beacuas my cell phone(o2) almost time hang so i used it very dificulit ...pleas help meI was so pissed off with my Omina 11 and just got rid of it. It regularly crashed while surfing the net and even jammed my incoming calls occasionally. Anyway this is not Windows problem. Even my friends Galaxy with Android 2.3 has the same problems.
For some people it`s ‘Samsung for life’. For me ‘never in my life another Samsung’.
how to remove reserved memory in the main storage in omnia ii???
or how to back from 6.5 to 6.1 Windows mobile?
The stock firmware for the Samsung Omnia 2 is terrible. Programs crash, phone is unresponsive, surfing the internet on this phone is a frustration. Add to the fact that sometimes if you attempt to multitask, your programs will close without warning.
Omnia 2 is a Windows phone best used if you are immune to frustrations, annoyances and the feeling of being pissed...
I'm very sad beacuas my cell phone(o2) almost time hang so i used it very dificulit ...pleas help me
i followed all what is writen on the official firmware site and i used winxp 99% i think i did every thing correct .
helpe, 04 Jun 2011octanos dose not detect my o2 what could be the problem helppppppppppppppppDid you installed the correct drivers?don't forget you need usb driver(32 or 64bits) and cdma driver.Follow the exact procedure.
octanos dose not detect my o2 what could be the problem
when i press detect un octanos it dosent detect my omnia 2 anybody helps????????
skyjack*10, 02 Jun 2011Yeah man, I just sold mine. After a year, I just could not stand the freeze and poor internet ... moreSorry to hear that. It may sound strange, but i'm more than ever satifsied with my omnia 2. I finally made the perfect combination between performance and battery, with eye candy too. Also with lot of free memory(75mb after all apps/games installed).
I made an ultra lite rom, wich is blazing fast, removed all samsung crap, installed only the ones i need and use. In the end...installed spb shell with an addon and the result is amazing.
There are 2 things that bother me, but i can live without it :)
1.The lack of flash support and proper 3d drivers(omnia 2 can do much more, the hardware allows it)
2. All developers kinda dropped support for windows mobile.No latest games, but again,i can live without those.For proper gaming i'm using my galaxy. But for e-mail, browsing, even instant messaging i'm still using my omnia2. Galaxy makes great pictures/movies on daylight, but for nightshots i'm using omnia :P.
Like i said, i'm sticking with my o2 for a long time..i think this phone will "retire" from my hands :).
Yeah man, I just sold mine. After a year, I just could not stand the freeze and poor internet browsing. I`m not tech savvy, so could not tweak it for better performance. There were some who tried the tweak and faced other problems. Finally when important data got lost from my storage, that was the final straw.
fadz, 28 May 2011hi Lawrence, is this the same result if i press; settings, memory settings, clear memory, and ... moreYes,it's the same thing. I repeat, it will only erase the internal memory(main memory), not My storage(2/8/16 gb) or Storage card.
Another way to hard reset the omnia is to type on phone dialer this code :
Good luck. I see less activity around here....this means you guys don't have your phones anymore?...Too bad..i still have mine..and it's working like a cham :P
