mgam, 06 Mar 2011How is this phone's touch quality....With older roms it has quite a bad touch.But with latest 6.5 or 6.5.3 roms all things are improved. And if you flash a custom rom,it will fly.
I recommend at least NXXJH1/JH2 roms.JH1 is 6.5,JH2 is 6.5.3
King.Valentine, 15 Feb 2011I bought my omnia ii last year May in Dubai. It has been functioning well till recently when i... morei had same prob before. i cant hear callers voice or sms tone. The problem solved when i put the samsung headset (microphone) into the 3.5 audio jack.. choose headset and press ok, and then pull out the jack again. hope it works for your Omnia
Not such a good phone. You can make a few tweaks, but you'll get max 70 MB free RAM after restart, so from 256 MB ram advertised, more than half is reserved and you cannot use it. Plenty of bugs, no official updates .. etc. You can use lite ROM's, but they are buggy ..

Please can any one tell me that, is it possible to minimize all application on Omnia i8000. Please replay as soon as.
cool, 10 Feb 2011Excellent phone ? using for 4 years top of the range...This was released in 2009.
This is the WORST PHONE EVER!
Windows Operating system is CRAPPY.
The only thing this thing did was give me a very expensive MP3 Player. the MS Office Mobile is just crap.
Games are also crappy, apps are crappy.
If you are planning on purchasing this phone.
I'd advice you to go for iPhone4 or BB.
Coz samsung is turning sh!t when it comes to phones.
I mean, cmon man! Applications arent good at all.
Games, apps, are crap. CRAP I tell you..
And it's not really built for personal use.
I mean, It doesn't have a TWITTER, TUMBLR APP.
Facebook app is shit.
I don't know, but I was inlove with samsung before.
But with the performance of their BEST PHONE for the omnia series is crap.

@gwen,i just gave you the solutions. If you want a tutorial, it will take too much here and i don't know if you will understand.you have 2 choices, either you go on modaco.com(just google modaca i8000) or add my email.
Gwen, 23 Feb 2011How can I update to Window Mobile 6.5.3...? Can anyone help..?You can do this 2ways :
1. If you have stock rom, just go to samsung site, download and install KIES and voila. In about 30 minutes you have a new firmware.
2.If your rom is custom, you will need Octans,rom parts and drivers fitting your SO.
For second solution go to modaco.com.
You have nice tutorials there, all you need. If you still can't do it, contact me on e-mail.

Can any help me? My O II can't be used as a modem to PC. It well connects to internet that I can surf various website very fast. However, while use it as a modem to PC via internet sharing, (I connect it via USB) the phone connects to the internet but the PC can't. Does anyone know what wrong?
