Anonymous, 19 Oct 2010can anybody please tell me if the windows7 mobile can be installed on the omnia 2?? thanks a lot Officially, NO. But i won't be surprised to see a modded omnia 2 with winmo7, like i saw with android on it. the hardware is not that bad. the lack of proper drivers draws the phone back.let's wait and see what happens. btw, i managed to play with a wp7 device. it's ok, but something doesn't feel right . it may be just my 2 cents, but i just didn't like it.
can anybody please tell me if the windows7 mobile can be installed on the omnia 2??
thanks a lot
Lawrence you know a lot about samsung and you helped me. So thanks, i just might keep it and not go back to Sony Ericsson.Thanks a lot again.

ALL of the similar devices have downs and ups. there is no perfect gadget. do you think if you had an iphone you would be happy?or a hd2? or any other device? just look on the dedicated forums to read users opinions. it's a marketing strategy my friend. my luck was the modaco community. with their help i can share what i've learned to help you.if you don't like it, i won't write here anymore. i know my phone is more than ok, with the improvements i've done. end of story.
In my openion, it seems Samsung Elec. employed you (and some other people) to write some good things (and of course some good ratings) about their smart! phones.

[deleted post]My friend,like in the movie industry, there are no small roles, only small actors. Making an analogy, there are no stupid devices, only....you get the idea. If you don't know how to use it, sell it, buy a nokia 1100 and be happy. Smartphones ( oops) are not for everybody. They are complicated devices, which require a certain amount of knowledge regarding mobile phones, pda's etc. If you bought omnia 2 only because it looks cool, it's shiny and it has a big screen, well........
Anonymous, 17 Oct 2010But where do I get these roms....." There are at least 3 different 6.5.3 roms(JE3,JG2, JH... morelet's take it step by step.
1. I just don't know about brazil's networks, but on modaco there are couple of brazil rom makers. so, they are using omnia 2 in brazil too :P. One of them is shadowangel, who has made even portuguese brasil roms. you should give it a try.
2. I dont have internet freezes. I'm using opera mobile 10 with flashlite 3.1 and flashplayer 7 installed. works great on my 3g connection, almost perfect on wifi. With dinarsoft memmaid you can change the cache folder for opera. instead of main memory, the cache will move to my storage. it helps, by keeping the main memory free
3. about the rom files. my friend you should read VERY CAREFULY the flashing procedure. First, the files you are downloading are archived with 7zip 9 beta edition. it won't work with winrar or an earlier 7zip version. Let's say you want to flash JH2 6.5.3. You will need these files : JH2 Eboot, JH2 pda, a CSC(look around, there are many, for almost each zone) and the phone part. Latest is JF1. Depending on the zone you are from, the csc is customized. This is very important, because if you are from Asia and you will flash an european csc, the network settings will be a mess. So, for more details contact me on e-mail(look a few pages back).
I`m satisfied with my Omina 2 on nearly all aspects except internet browsing. If you read the postings here in this forum, you`ll see most Omnia 2 owners complain the unit hangs or freezes while browsing the net. I`m one of those too, and am about to ditch this phone after several frustrating moments. However since you say the phone needs to be tweaked a little for it be out of this problem, I`m willing to give it one more chance.
The point is, I`m not well versed with phone software. I would love to follow your instructions and tweak my Omnia 2 for a better internet experience. If I can get it to not freeze that much, I`ll be willing to put up with some of the other negative aspects, which are really small. There is no perfect unit. However, I`m afraid, not knowing much about software I may do something which could lead to more problems!

My network provider (TIM) says it works with 850 /2100 Mhz. Some states runs over 850 and others 2100.
But the whole questions is if it is really 850 or 900.
That info will make choose from it or not.

zen10shadow, 13 Oct 2010Do you mean the smart reader? if you want to scan business card. run the smart reader program... moreCard Scanner only scan Name and Phone Number but It should be read address, title etc. Which other scanner recognize
According to Samsung's website, the 3G Network frequency for UTMS are 850 /1900 / 2100 Mhz. The 900Mhz would not be in this phone. That little information make the whole difference to me, since it brings it back as an option for me.
Can anyone confirm it to me???

nick, 16 Oct 2010i cant seem to catch u online hehe. wat do u mean by memory leak? and restart every week?Like i said, i'm from romania. i think there are about 6-7 hrs difference between us . about the memory leak? samsung did a crappy job with this device regarding the software. too bad about the nice hardware specs. the memory managament sucks.this means, in time, we "lose" the available ram and to recover it you need to restart(soft reset) the phone. Example : monday i have 89 mb ram free. next sunday, i have only 55-60 mb ram free. where is the rest gone? in samsung's belly i guess :)). after a soft reset it's all coming back. that's why i said the only thing that really bugs me is this. the rest very good.
