For the others, what do you think is the maximum number of messages which you can store? does it have a feature to save messages in the memory card?
kikomatsing, 19 May 2010is the unit brand new? did you drop your unit before you experience those problems? it really does hang. my defective jet was replaced with this phone bec replacement jet is unavailable. it is really a hassle. I bought defective jet and omnia lite from Samsung SM Mall of Asia. Dont buy any phone from Samsung MOA. Defective phones and rude staff. and they do not know the specs of what they are selling. believe me. their customer service really sucks big time.

i have an Omnia Lite and it freezes too!! it hangs and it is really a hassle to use. brought it to the Samsung Service Center at SM Mall of Asia and Robinson's Place (where I bought the phone) to have it checked or even replaced because of it's defect but they kept on blaming the SIM card. they said that apparently, Samsung phones are "designed" for 64k SIM cards and since I'm using a 128k postpaid SIM card, it will cause the phone to hang, the battery will be drained faster, it will cause the phone to heat up faster and it will have intermittent network signal. and till now, after a month, my phone is still with them since they are still "checking" what the defects are. Samsung phones are just as equally poor in performance as the quality of service itself!!

Thanks for your advice david and matsingkiko. :) it helped me a lot. :) the freezing did not happen anymore since i started deleting messages from my inbox. and those messages that are really important, I save them on Microsoft my phone (via sync). Now my next problem is where to find a leather case for my omnia lite. I've tried looking at Robinson's ermita, SM manila and some other malls. How much do you think does it cost? any suggestions again? thanks in advance. :)
I HATE THIS F*?#EN MOBILE!!!! It so damn slow!! Every time I try to send, receive or type of message, I have to wait for about 1 min before I can even read the sms!!! The function of the Wi-Fi and GPRS doesn't define the two as one or the other cancels out each other when I try to connect to ether. I contacted Samsung Singapore and Thailand as they don't have a dealer or service center in Lao to see if I can upgrade but no response. I thought that this would be a good mobile but very disappointed. Will through it at the wall once I receive my new HTC mobile.
confusedlikeagemini:, 08 May 2010which one do you think is much better? Samsung B7300 Omina lite or the Samsung B7330 Omnia pro... moreI have gotten used to a large screen ever since my samsung star then shifted to the omnia lite. I was able to use a samsung B2100 prior to the omnia lite which is a "normal" candybar phone, small non touch screen and I think i find it difficult to switch back to a small screen phone. As regards the 7330, I haven't used a qwerty phone before because i think I find the keypad too small for my fingers, so if you do plan to buy this phone i suggest trying it out if your fingers will be hitting the right keys. At least with the B7300 you have the option of choosing the regular alphanumeric keys with the touchscreen. If ever I will buy a qwerty phone i'll probably buy those slide out qwerty keypads like in the corby pro or nokia e75 simply because they have bigger keypads than the blackberry types. (in some phones like in the corby pro, you retain the big screen and the touch screen functionality.) I saw the corby pro in the same store a few seconds after buying the omnia lite and was tempted to get it instead because of the physical keyboard and touchscreen combined but decided to stick with the omnia lite because i wanted to try windows mobile since it is supposed to be more flexible since you can install apps. and becasue saying you have an omnia (forget about the lite) sounded more chic and higher end than corby :)
After I manually set my B7300 to the GSM band i wanted (non3g) and decided not to use the threaded SMS, and as david mentioned, limited the inbox, I noticed a significant decrease in the phone freezing up.
confusedlikeagemini:, 08 May 2010which one do you think is much better? Samsung B7300 Omina lite or the Samsung B7330 Omnia pro... moreMy Omnia Lite also freezes at times and requires a reset. I also have face the problem of lagging letters when texting and skipping to neighboring letters on the keypad. However, I'm slowly getting used to it and simply making my texting more precise. I also make use of the landscape setting, as well as the normal numerical phone keypad texting scheme. The hassle of resetting my phone everytime it freezes also gets on my nerves as more often than not, I usually do not bring my stylus anymore or tether it to the device. So I have to look for a pen or some sort of pin object to reset it.
However, I was really expecting this for the bargain price I paid for this device. I'm trying to find ways to make it's performance faster. Some ways are to keep your message inbox to less than 100 messages, or even less if you can. Overall, it's really the messaging that lags and causes my phone to freeze.
As for my advice on switching to the B7330, I suggest that you weigh what you prioritize in a phone. I'm really not fond of blackberry-type qwerty phones with small screens. The specs of the B7330 are practically almost the same as the OmniaLite, but having qwerty is a big difference. Also, I'm not sure how to benchmark processors, but the B7330 only has a 528Mhz processor, while the B7300 has 667MHz one.
Windows Mobile 6.5 also runs quite differently on a non-touch device, so you may want to explore if that suits your needs. I really suggest that you try to get used to the OmniaLite, or find ways to boost its performance before switching to another phone.
Yesterday i gt the phone, and i was surprised. No problem with microphone and excellent sound quality. For that price a really good phone.
R-F, 04 May 2010hi i can't play Divx files. is there anybody help me to play Divx files? thnx You need to register it buddy.
which one do you think is much better? Samsung B7300 Omina lite or the Samsung B7330 Omnia pro?... I already have the Omnia lite, but beginning to have Second thoughts because the phone keeps freezing and, I find it really hard to type text messages. Sometimes if i press I,O appears. It really gets on my nerves sometimes when I'm in a hurry.
I like the Omnia lite because it has features that doesn't come with the Omnia pro, plus the fact that it has a 3-inch LCD. But everytime it lags, Freezes or hangs, the HASSLE drives me nuts.
I am planning to switch to the Omnia pro (B7330)
Got any suggestions anyone? David? Matsingkiko? Paris? Wheyme? Please help me decide... :)
ahmed, 04 May 2010hi all
is there any way to let the clock 12 hours ?Go to Settings\Advanced Settings\System\Regional Settings\
Then go to TIME then change the TIME STYLE by selecting the first or second selection which is 12hours Time Format.
The phone worth its price, I just can't get the garmin to work. Gives me an error that the .exe file is not a valid pocket pc application. Anyway I'll need to read thru some links see what I can do. I may need that port splitter that someone suggested..
