I almost bought this phone but was taken back when I held it. The back side was not pretty and rough and at a glance I thought it was a Nokia phone. The sales persons (1 boy and 1 girl) kept saying it is not a music phone but a business phone which led me to believe its music playing capabilities may be mediocre. They then kept comparing it to the iPhone and that of course and that is not so reassuring. It was priced like the iPhone which made me finally decide on not buying it.
Why would I settle for a clone when I could have the original for even less.
i love omnia..but im so frustrated right now...i returned it to samsung sevice center after 5days of using it,when i use wi-fi at home and using it for a long period of time, it heats up and turned off on its own.you cannot do anything about it but to detach and re attach the battery and it will turned on again.Hope they replace it and not fixing it because this is not a cheap phone and they sold me a defective unit!grrrr

For OMNIA, as far as I know, the supported games should be of Windows Mobile platform, which means you cannot put your N95 games into your OMNIA.
thx for the fast reply but my friend says that the network in america put in some devices a system in order not to be read in other sims and I heard omnia is one of them thats what my friend said so if u have any info about that plz tell me

IMMORTALL, 27 Aug 2008some people say if I buy phone from america it wont work in Egypt can anyone help me in this??... morehi,
since it's a quad-band phone, there should be no problem at all anywhere in the world.
some US phones doesn't work because they only support 850MHZ, in egypt we use 900/1800MHZ
and it's supported in OMNIA , so don't worry

ok i have been looking at this phone and it looks great. yet asmuch as i hate apple and have never owned a ipod or anything. the apps on the iphone are so cool. is it possible to get games and such like this for all touchscreens? or are they apple only.
Keyur, 26 Aug 2008can u pls tell me how to transfer file in iphone using bluetooth.... You can't, but the work around is, you can email the file. Now let me ask you this question. How can you change improve the omnia's qvga screen to look like half vga screen of the iphone? You can't either, lol. Worse, there's no work around, so you're stuck with a cheap qvga with only 200 something K colors, lol.

I'm out and about a lot though flitting between a couple of houses so think i will go for the 16gig with unlimited internet.
I will have to do some negotiating with orange or just wait for o2 or voda to get the 16 gig. i'm sure it will come eventually. lol

but im just sticking up for common sense. Kia's rides are just as smooth and nice as a BMW's if you have a top of the range one. Ive always thought BMW's have really hard uncomfortable seats and totally lack any kind of character.
still the obsession with german cars considering their record of total unreliability is beyond me. i dont own a kia btw. i own a nokia n95 too so im nothing to do with this debate.

I found tom tom pretty hard to use on omnia. The gps signal is always dropping.
I use IGO8 and its fantastic! It picks up the gps satellites in under 2 minutes. I highly recommend that over Tom Tom.
And Samsung omnia has internal gps so you dont have to worry about charges.
Have ordered my Omnia today hopefully for delivery Thursday. Love the look of it but am nervous of how it will work as mixed reviews. One question I have is about GPS. Is it easy to install Tom Tom on this, can this be downloaded from anywhere and if this is used as my GPS does this mean I dont need to use my web minutes. Cheers for any advice.
