That is why the issues subsist and people are screaming at Voda who in response to nothing other than issue empty promises about future fixes, without ever saying when.
On paper a great phone. On paper. Vodafone have ruined it with their software which crashes and creates endless problems. They are slow to fix the multiple issues that people are reporting. Why don't Samsung intervene as it surely ruins their reputation. The phone is well specced but fiddly to use and the battery is only 1000 not 1440 as detail on this site, so if you use the GPS (lucky if you can with Voda) the battery dies quickly and in the process makes the phone very hot, then it crashes.
So great phone on paper, in your hand, best look elsewhere and certainly not another Vodafone branded disaster.

guys!!! 99% of the issues writen in this thread, are rom related!!! yes there were 'bugs' in earlier roms, but they have all been fixed. before you post negative comments, please update the rom and then see if you have anything to complain about!!!!!. btw over at modaco paul and other users are now creating custom roms!!! with apps removed and apps added, and optimized. i know this post will get lost in thread, and lazy people will not read thorugh the previous posts, and continue to leave negative comments about the phone, but hey i tried!!!!
The Editors of the site forgot to mention that Omnia supports Video recording at 120fps just like Innov8 with the 320x240 resolution.
Also it has built-in Flashlight feature.
These have been personally tried and tested by me using the latest ROM: DTHJ5

Getting used to transferring data to the device, asis the case with all other winmo, takes time to master. Music quality is above average but not the best. Camera is superb.Video play back is good.Auto rotation is working without an issue.Widgets permits u to play with the looks.I have used almost all the top notch phones of Samsung,Nokia & sony Ericson. My vote definitely goes to Samsung in general & Omnia in particular. A small piece of advise.Pls do not listen to comments, including mine. Read reviews. Talk to technically sound people.Assess yr info & then decide. There are premeditated comments floating around. Good luck to u with yr next purchase.

If you haven't got this phone don't write about how good/bad it is. This phone has a rating of 8.5/8.5/8.4 with the majority who actually own it (from the comments) saying its crap, so what's the real story?!?
aand there something i am missing in omnia the 16mil colour for resluotion and more thems for the phone look...and strong battery to be the king with no competion
i think this phone is the best in market,and it's better than htc daimound because of it's size i think when u want to use a touch screen u have to use a bigger one not as iphone but as omnia..
Hi, I'm a pretty heavy mobile user and very much rely on sending and receiving text and/or emails via these devices. I've been fortunate enough to work closely with our Telecoms man and get the benefit of testing the latest and greatest phones. I was really looking forward to testing the Omnia, but after a couple of days I'm ready to throw it out. Reviews on this phone is positive, but unfortuantely for me, I find the full keypad unusable, perhaps of my fat fingers I don't know. The navigation through programs and settings is clunky, and the signal strength is far weaker than my current phone. I hate that the stylus has not proper slot. And to top it off, the Vodafone firmware had bugs on it! Auto answer issues. One positive note, I agree that it's packed with features that I want in a phone, but there were too many issues to begin with. I apologise to Omnia fans, but it's not a phone I like and would recommend.
I bought a Samsung i900 Omnia on the 13th of October 2008. Into the 3rd day of the purchase I was already experiencing problems (long loading period + occasional freezing). VERY UNEXPECTED. I had to reset the phone about 20 times since I had received it... VERY, FRUSTRATING!!! Then on Saturday 18th October the phone just mail functioned. It was a dud. On Monday I took the phone back to MTN - Head office Port Elizabeth, after a chat with one of the consultants they wouldn’t exchange it. They offered to send it away to have repaired! I am very frustrated and disappointed that I must now wait three to four weeks to get it back after it’s been REPAIRED! I have lost TOTAL interest in this phone! First impressions last!
pls i have almost 350 nummbers on my contacts en i can't get deze on the phone Can any body tell me how to go about this (memorycard to phone)
Anonymous, 20 Oct 2008its not a gsm phone. plus its not very good.wot do you know bout phones sayin this is rubbish????the omnia is a super awesum phone guys. all specs plus the look. anyone who disagrees cant aford it. i have it and it works like a charm. so poor people dont hate it. work hard ,sell your cars then buy the omnia.
John, 19 Oct 2008The best is to take the phone to Samsung Service center or some person shop know how to do. OT... moreThanks Mr. John,
I appreciate your advise and will try to get this done through Samsung Shop, if I find one in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
