A third reason not to trust samsung :
This is a letter from a wm handset owner that owns a samsung:
Is that how we reward loyal customers Samsung? Windows Mobile 6.5 update for the SGH I780 in February 2010 nothing happened. Windows Mobile 6.5.3 for the Omnia 2 in May and we are almost in June. Please at least give Android lovers that small 2.1 if they can get FROYO. And this is coming from a Windows Mobile fan.
End of the letter..
The thing is that I know samsung has great tech and nice phones, but regarding updates it's just lie*s nothing more! So wake up with samsung there is no updates. Samsung are too busy releasing new phones they don't have any time for the users and their updates.
This is a letter from a loyal samsung customer for years now and this is what he thinks :
When a company publicly lies to their own customers, it's not a very good incentive for those customers to then go out and purchase another of that company's products. I'm already running Donut on my Behold II; why would I want them to update me to the same version, but with more bloatware (like their so-called "bug fix" in February)?
They keep lying to customers. First, the promotional video saying we'll get 2.0, then the recent statement that the Behold II cannot be upgraded past 1.6. The technical specs of the device, which are surprisingly difficult to track down (why, Samsung?) prove that the device is comparable to, say, the Moto Cliq, which was confirmed as getting 2.1.
I HAD been a pretty loyal Samsung customer for several years. I've bought their phones, TVs, DVD players, and other electronics. But I don't like being lied to, especially when it's this obvious. On my life, I will never buy another Samsung product again. And I'll be shopping for a replacement phone this week. HTC seems nice...
End of the letter..
We still don't know if the OMNIA II i8000 will support Windows Mobile 7 but my friend you can go to Samsung Service Centre and upgrad your winmo 6.5 to winmo 6.5.3 bec. its already released this May of second half and the winmo 6.5.3 they already have fixed the laggy and the bugs and the other softwares of this phone OMNIA II i8000 that have issues...

I have a problem that is only I can sync mails using the PC, when my mobile is disconnected from PC the send/receive is dimmed although I tested the internet in the mobile and working fine.

my suggestion try activating your Vibrate so that when someone call you it will vibrate in your pocket and you will feel the vibration, just activate the vibrate and ring in the "Call Alert Type" which will be seen in the "Ring" and wait for the update of winmo 6.5.3 and they will fixed all the bugs and laggy of your phone OMNIA II and its rumored that the update of winmo 6.5.3 will be released on second half of May 2010 and maybe now you can go to Samsung Service Centre and update your phone to winmo 6.5.3 bec. its already second half of May 2010...
hello, ive been having this phone for about a month, the display, sound, camera is veeeeeryyyyy satisfying..
when i listen to any songs the sound just so crisp, camera doin the job superfine on makin superb clear and smooth pics.
this phone is all that but a good phone. why do i said that? see, i even upgraded my om2 to jc1, and for me it doesnt make a big diff. still laggy, imho.
but there are some few things that samsung might consider to repair, its bugging me when im using this phone:
1. the loudest ringtone sumtimes not that loud, it starts a bit low then it got louder. so i often missed some calls.
2. i do really hate the msg notification! and this happens with msg alert tone too i cant even use any longer ringtone more than 3sec because they will play aaaalllll the way until the song thorough! and i cant do nothing about it, pressing any keys didnt help. i cant use too short ringtone, you see, because i dont hold my phone in my palm all the time and ussually i put the phone in bags, so when the ringtone too short i cant read any text in handy.
i think its good that samsung is so eager with the tech, but please do not forget that this still is a phone and a phone shouldnt shed off its function. how can we decide a phone is a good phone when the usage of the device doesnt deliver right? well i can find a way to tweak it allright, but still, that's not the point here.
anyhoo, i still love the other part of my omnia. just want samsung might take it as a advice for further products.
