That's not completely correct. You cannot (pre) order your omnia on the website. You can only register your name, and send them a copy of your receipt once you have bought the Omnia in a store (so you'll have to get it yourself). Then, if you are one of the first 100 or 500 customers, you will win a xbox or 8gb memory card. And it will come with 8Gb internal memory according to their press release: http://nl.samsungmobile.com/fo...easesView.do
For the Philippine buyers. Thanks for the posts! In Samsung Galleria Ortigas, the 8gb goes for 36k and the 16gb is 42K. Apparently, it costs higher in Samsung's boutiques =b Better find other dealers, so long as they carry good warranties that is.
This may be an incredibly idiotic question.
How do i set my own songs as ring tones, i cant seem to change it to anything other than the preset samsung ones.
i really hope they havent outdone themselves with the usual text alerts being samsungs ones and now its ringtones too..
Anonymous, 20 Aug 2008It is now available for 7,5M (16GB). Too bad they don't sell out the 8GB...yup, actually i prefer 8gb version, cos i don't think i will need that much storage 4 now, but sadly it will not available here..
mean we can't save some money :-)
plz give your review if you already had it..
Samsung say EVENTUALLY (christmas??) the Omnia will be available in the UK. Some web sellers ie mobile.co.uk had the Omnia available on O2 and now its pulled!
Samsung G810, Experia and others have been announced 6 months ago and have never made it to the stores. They are now obsolete before they are available. Omnia may well follow this pattern, due to the chronic apathy and dilatory treatment of the networks.

They do not deserve our custom, but as long as they work as a cartel, they will do as they want. Just good manners would mean clear information is put out about availability but we are not even treated to that, in short totally pissed off now.
omnia i900 8gb is available here in philippines, cebu city at samsung ayala
for P33,++ 0% interest on selected major\
credit cards. fyi 'cos am so crazy waiting this phone also....

Next week Vodafone (& O2?) are offering the 8GB, which is a bit rubbish but there we go. The memory card slot does apparently take a 16GB card however:-
I'm in the same situation - want a 16GB phone but not with an Orange deal!
Hey guys can somebody tell me how much time does your omnia take to charge from 0 to 100?
Anonymous, 19 Aug 2008I went to orange, phone 4 u, and the carphone warehouse today to see if they had this phone in... moreHi Rang up ORange today as I am in Month 15 of my orange contract, and i asked if they had the 16gig Omnia in stock, and whether I am eligable for an upgrade. I was told by the lady / girl on the other side of the phone they have got it stock & I can have the upgrade, I also wanted to change my tariff and bring it down from £40 a month. I was offered a £25 tariff (500 mins and 100 texts) and the phone for £49.99. That tariff is more than sufficient for me so I have done that and should be getting the phone tomorrow (Wednesday). I also asked her to confirm whether it was definatly the 16gig, this is what she told me, We have currently been told that we only have the 16 gigs in as there is a greater demand for the 16 gig rather then the 8 gig at the moment and that they shall be be getting the 8gig but at a later date. So heres fingers and toes and anything else crossed. She also did say that she sent one out to a customer 2 days ago and that they have recieved it and confirmed that they had a 16 gig.

I went to orange, phone 4 u, and the carphone warehouse today to see if they had this phone in stock, and guess what ? They have! but the only downside, this mobile phone is available on orange only and i must say that their tariffs aren't really good but if you go for the £35 plan, the guys told me it would be £100 but if you get the £40 plan, its only £50, now if its only available to orange which in my opinion, does not offer value for money on the contracts, then they're going to lose out on so many customers ! if this phone came on Tmobile UK that would be so good! does anyone know if this will actually happen? ive been due for an upgrade for two months now on tmobile and have been waiting for this phone patiently but now i find that its only available on orange?? can anyone help on this matter?
PROMISED YOU ALL A REPLY FROM SAMSUNG TO MY QUERY OF 09.25 THIS MORNING UK TIME HEREWITH:
Thanks for your email on the SGH-I900 OMNIA phone.
In reply, i will say the launchdate in the UK is this month August and
it has been already released by Orange network and on sale by Orange.
We do not sell our phones directly, only via the various networks and
that is why we refer our customers to them.
Eventually, Vodafone and 02 networks will follow suit and put them out
I hope this has been of some assistance to you. If you do have any
further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
