Just tinker around a bit and you'll get. I for one use task switcher for multitasking. And there are no bugs in the perfect phone with wm 6.5. Don't worry and upgrade confidently!

I have bought a Omnia 2 last week. WinMobile version 6.1. On the box is a sticker mentioning that the phone can be upgraded to v6.5. What is your experience with v6.5? Is everything working well? Some people are having lot of troubles after the upgrade. So much so that some have even downgraded to 6.1!!!
More here: http://www.mobinauts.com/topic/109243-official-thread-for-samsung-omnia-2-part-9/page__st__60
Some say wi-fi is not working and some have got their youtube broken! Also what is this about the phone becoming a single task machine after the upgrade?
shanp3, can you use multiple apps at the same time? For ex. can you run the touch music player in the background while you are browsing the net?
Kindly give your feedback on the 6.5 upgrade
I dont have experience with i900 but I can tell you the i8000 is good gear.The people saying it's full of bugs on this site are full of crap.I've had mine for about a month now and it is just pure joy. It's a great phone and it has enough power to handle anything you throw at it.
I'm sure people throw any old two bob programs made by people with half a brain on their device and expect it to work like a beauty.Some software is just plain old crap which will crap up your device,the same as it will with your computer. Some people think a device should be perfect, but there isn't and will never be because everyones wants are different
Is it still buggy? I'm having second thoughts on getting a just released phone.
Pros & cons vs. the Omnia i900, anyone? I was planning on getting the i900, then then new one came out. Now I'm torn.
if omnia 2 wanted to be an iphone wanna be it would have left out a lot of features and applications.I think iphone nerds are jealous.
What a great phone my omy 2 is,,,love it
just flashed to wm 6.5....its not laggy....smooth....its like using spb shell....and more interactive..its a good os in total...battery life is still the same
just get the phone... installed many apps n touchflow 3d UI... this is the best phone ever.

Omnia is perhaps more advanced Dan, but I guess as you will have grown up with the tech you will manage it fine. I think you would find it hugely more enjoyable that the Storm, but keep your Storm for a while to make sure, I will s post when it would be a good time for you to sell!!
would u recommend the phone for a 16 year old ive had blackberry storm 9500, selling on ebay if anyones interested.

I have spent a lot of time looking at reviews for this phone and all the pros give it very high marks, even a glowing report from gsmarena who i trust a lot.
Can't wait to get my hands on it.

Check what it is set to, and perhaps make a revision to the settings. This should help considerably.
Brett you seem to have a dud on your hands. I have an Omnia with 6.5 on it and have none of the issue your report. True landscape does not happen in every application, and I guess a firmware update or third party application will fix that. I did have some email problems as I mentioned in an earlier post but thanks to Mark Wallace at CPW (UK) they seem to have been sorted. I do find it takes time to set the phone up properly and I am learning daily about it. Evn though not 100% with it yet, I do feel this is a good possibly great phone. The screen and battery cannot be better, and the camera is good as well. Call quality is perfect, and therefore overall a good bit of kit in my experience. It always seems that the earliest released phone have more problems. Try to see (Brett) if you can exchange yours, if there are any legal grounds for so doing. I am sure with 6.5 on board the problems will be fewer.
This phone does not live up to it specs. Beware!
The phone operating system is very slow. If you reply to and email you can type three letters before the first one is displayed on the screen. If you rotate the phone to landscape the screen changes to landscape after a delay of 3 seconds. The phone will not remember WI-FI configuration passwords and will try and use GPRS instead of available wireless connections (costing you extra money) The scree is not sensitive and I find I have to tap harder than i want to to get a typing response. When a call comes in I have the phone set to loud (cos I live in China) and the fist three rings a soft because the phone takes so long to wake up and increase the volume to what I had preset.
The email reply scree is very small and the font cannot be changed to show more clearly.
The opera Browser has a home scree you cant change and the favorites sections seems to be unresponsive unless you tap very hard.
I have tried to turn off the "Tap" sound when typing but very attempt has failed.
My friend has a new Iphone and he showed it to me an all the problems I have experienced with this phone he has none.
I tired to download the MyPhone program to allow me to add additional programs to improve the phones usability but the phone must connect using a phone number which does not seem to work. I tired the website to download this MyPhone programs but it is unavailable.
The windows update is also unavailable for this phone so I am at a loss as to how I will update the software to WinMo 6.5
I did not buy and Iphone because I thought I wanted a better camera but now with all the issues I have with this phone I seem to have made a poor decision.
Thanks a lot! Hmm...I haven't had any hands on experience with a Samsung OS phone before so i'm not sure what to expect...my dopod before has WinMo and i've always been fond of WinMo (except that i like how I can customize themes on Symbian. One thing that's really bugging me is the fact that Jet doesn't have any qwerty keyboard on portrait mode (one of the things that i'm not liking about the nokia 5800) and I heard it can't open office files (?)...i'm not sure if it's because of those that it's like 1/3 less off the price of Omnia. (Basically here in Manila Omnia 2 is around 31,000+ and Jet is 22,000+)
