Huy, 04 Aug 2008just got mine in mail today. anyone know how to set MP3 to ringtones?you have to save a copy into the my ringtones folder in your my documents folder. When you save it in the my ringtones, it will appear on your options of sounds.
one thing is missing its a flash player.
i guess its not supporting it. but still good phone.
about GPS on this phone, go to the setting>system>then GPS. there are 2 diff GPS settings on the page, one is for built-in GPS reciever and the other one is external reciever. enable the built-in GPS, just like i did few days ago, using google map by Wi-Fi with built-in GPS reciever, it seems to me that the phone was able to get at least 5 diff satellites.
And What Is The Phones Compatibility Like With The Thousands Of Windows Mobile Application Out There?Will They Install Correctly Onto The Phone?

i have garmin installed but it tells me that i have to turn on my GPS receiver b4 i can use. anyone know how to do this? please help!
to totti: i can't get it to work...via google maps...never catches satellites. unless i'm doing something wrong? i'm trying to use it via my wifi. how can u use it with garmin? i'm pretty new to all this...detailed answers to how to get it to work would be much appreciated! thx
gps works? how do u access it? through google maps? do u need internet access to use it?
to andy: no i tried it and it doesn't seem to be able to catch any sattelites. (in canada) you can get ur locations via google maps as well as directions as long as u have a network hooked up...either wifi or through ur carrier (which can be pricey) but no GPS as of now. i will speak to my carrier to see if this can be fixed.
I found the link to where i saw the claim.
Hi, i can see taht many of the members here have had quite an experience with the Omnia...
I know i should be going through the previous discussions to seek my answer... but there's over 300+ pages so i was hoping someone would be able to answer me question regarding the GPS of the Omnia.
The GPS will not work in North America, is this true? cause i am planning to buy the Omnia in the morning and bring it back to Canada Next week.If anyone knows or has tried to use the GPS in north america, a reply asap would be very appreciated. thankyou
A few questions guys
Being an owner of an Omnia for the past week I have gathered the following hickups:
a) some apps: world clock card reader are not present on the 16gb version I have
b) annoyinngly the second Home interface screen the gsmarena guys have is not present either. You get the widget screen, the shortcut screen and the main menu screen. And even on the widget screen the widget about birthdays is not there.
c)another quirk you should be aware of is the infamous call waiting issue. You can see your second line caller if you have call waiting enabled on your network and hear the beep and so does the caller calling get a notification from the network. However when you are the caller and the person you are calling is on their second line you get no such notification. To my knowledge this is an issue with Win Mobile.
d)last but not least the samsung phonebook hangs with the windows mobile busy sign is rendered useless!
If anyone can help i ll appreciate it!!!!
Meesh, 04 Aug 2008the good news that phones4u will be doing the handset sometime in august, so they say anyway, ... moreSeems a fair way forward. I am an existing O2 customer, but not happy with their apathy over the Omnia. Have you used P4U before are they any good, or typical of most Hight Streets shops in the UK with no notion of customer service?
