Skyjack*10, 04 Oct 2010Tks Lawrence for your tips.
I`m actually a little disappointed with Omnia`s performance co... more.@ skyjack - you can't compare omnia 2 with desire. why? first, the hardware specs. second, android vs winmo.i'm not saying one is better than other, it's more a personal choice. i'm happy with winmo, custom roms, as android users are happy with that os.and yes there are many custom android firmwares for all devices. this means ALL producers don't want to get the max out of a device, in order to make buy a new, more expensive one. Marketing all the way(look @ J B for apple). third, the price : in my country, a brand new omnia 2 is about 250 euros(2 gb version, 300 euros is the 16 gb), while desire is 450. I don't think that 1ghz cpu, with 512 mb ram is worth 150-200 euros.Don't forget omnia 2 has internal storage AND a micro sd slot. Now, about the wi fi, i don't have any issues with my omnia, maybe it's your rom. with 2 lines signal i can browse faster than my 3g+ data connection. and now problems with video streaming, either youtube or live tv.
@ nick . tell me the version of your rom, and i'll provide some dl links for original firmwares. but i'm telling you this : once you got a custom rom, you won't return to the official :)).in fact, a custom rom is BETTER than the official. why? let's see : updated drivers, improved performance, you have the chance to install and keep only the apps you need. I repeat, for all of you that are sick of official roms, check modaco if you really want to see your omnia2 at it's maximum capacity. 3 days ago i just flashed a custom JE3 6.5.3 rom, and i have 250 mb rom and 85 mb ram, AFTER i installed all the apps i need(and there are quite many - about 30), including spb mobile shell(it really brings out the omnia) with naong mobile sense. without naong mobile sense i got about 90 mb ram free. can you tell me the memory specs on your device, with official rom? :)).with all apss/games installed?
don't forget, for most samsungs default apps, there are better third party applications, some free, some "free". we're not allowed to talk about warez, but you get my idea :). like i said before, i'm gonna stick with my omnia2.
but when u download or flash your omnia with the roms is it possible to revert it back to the normal 6.5 win mo? coz what if u werent satisfied or something?
and where could i download pocket mobile?
Lawrence, 02 Oct 2010There are at least 3 different 6.5.3 roms(JE3,JG2, JH2 for omnia 2, latest is dated september ... moreTks Lawrence for your tips.
I`m actually a little disappointed with Omnia`s performance compared with HTC Desire. Both phones are priced about the same. You tube works so well with HTC Desire even with weak WIFI signal. With the same signal strength, my Omina just would not open the video files, even facebook photos would not download. Only with strong signal, facebook and you tube work. I`ll try modaco.com and hope to spruce my Omnia`s performance. You are right, Samsung Market apps are crappy!
I am definitely going to try Pocket Mechanic. Like you said the damn ghost are still around!

I checked the website,the call rates are about the same as Skype. I`m not too happy with the changes Skype has made recently. The changes invariably all cost the customer. I will not continue my subscription. Time to look at other providers.
Samsung 4 Life, 03 Oct 2010My friend im just telling the people here so that your Omnia II will not hang delete applicati... moreBut it's not enough just to delete them. Deleting is not the same with uninstalling. Even so, a simple uninstall with winmo default "remove programs" it's not enough. all apps will leave some ghost registry/folders on you device, eventually ending on hanging/freezing. That's why i recommend an application like pocket mechanic or dinarsoft memmaid. Great apps for cleaning your device registry/folder/system, just like you do with your pc. do this and i guarantee you won't have a freezing device :).

I know everything and Ive been here before and help a lot of people here.

It moves the apps and it also makes the registry entries.
nick, 03 Oct 2010can u post me a link where i could flash the win mo 6.5.3? thanks.Here it is
Just read the tutorial and download the rom that suites you best.
I prefer the ultralite roms, as i get more rom and ram free+ i install only the apps i need. If you are not that much into it, i recommend a normal rom, with all apps and stuff included. Look for kimitza on modaco(thats me) and i will help you further.
Hi this is Nitin. I think Samsung is the Best
Manufacturer of Windows Phone. I m quite
hope full that, one day they will take Nokias
place in World Market.
TOMA, 25 Sep 2010i can't deal with it .....there is no technical support for itTry modaco. Best supprt site ever for omnia and not only :))
Skyjack*10, 29 Sep 2010Microsoft has always done this and still doing it. They put out a program that is not fully st... moreThere are at least 3 different 6.5.3 roms(JE3,JG2, JH2 for omnia 2, latest is dated september 2010, even a 6.5.5 rom (JE1).All these official. If we're talking custom, more than 30 :).So, i don't think MS will ditch wm6(at least not 6.5.3). There are already a couple of wp7 customizations around and they look great on omnia 2. too bad the hardware won't support it.
But i tell you this : if samsung developes a real video(opengl) driver for omnia 2, it will ROCK. i will stick on this device till i die :)).
Samsung 4 Life, 01 Oct 2010For ALl OMNIA II users; Always remember when you have installed a application in your OMNIA... moreAs i said, NOT TRUE. The installer asks where do you want to install the application. about the "remains" of the apps in main storage, it's like on pc. every app needs to make it's entry to the registry. but that's all. about 99% of the apps let you choose the path to install, just like on a regular pc.

how do you flash the win mo 6.5.3> and where can you get it? thanks.Look on modaco.com. it's quite easy to flash a new custom rom. it takes about 10 minutes. i personally chosen an ultralite rom, since i don't need all the crappy apps installed by samsung. this way i get to install only the apps i need.
@ samsung4life. i think you don't know what are you talking about. besides samsung/winmo drivers and SPB Mobile Shell, i have installed ALL my apps in My Storage/Storage card.

The post below is mine, forgot to write in my name.
Have you updated to WM6... moreHi. I have this phone for a few months and i'm very pleased. flashed a custom rom(6.5.3) and the specs are : 340 mb rom and 108 mb ram free at boot. after installing all my apps, i have 90 mb ram free.
As a VOIP app use Nimbuzz. it's free and it's more than ok :P.good luck. i recommend this phone, but not out of the box. it needs a litle tuning to use it at it's max. look on modaco.com. those guys did a better job than samsung :)).

For ALl OMNIA II users;
Always remember when you have installed a application in your OMNIA II, the application goes automatically inside the Main Storage, so if your Main Storage is almost full delete programs in the Main Storage that you don't need and after using the Internet be sure to delete Cache files ok, so that your OMNIA II cpu processor will run fast and it will not hang... hopes this helps...
For All OMNIA II users;
Always turn On the Review Screen while taking picture using your OMNIA II bec. the Review Screen helps you to see the image automatically after taking a picture using your OMNIA II without pressing the button below the right when opening the image you have taken, and using the Review Screen helps you too see the image while adjusting the Contrast, Saturation, Sharpness so always enable the review Screen when using the camera of your OMNIA II, if you don't know were to find it, I will show it to you just follow my Steps;
Step 1: Open you Camera
Step 2: Go to the Settings of your Camera
Step 3: After that enable the Review Screen by turning it "On"
For ALL OMNIA II users;
Always enable the "X" button so that you will not always end all the applications that you have opened in the Task Switcher and in the Task Manager, just follow my steps where to find it incase you dont know were to find it;
Step 1: Go to Settings
Step 2: Go to Button
Step 3: Go to "X" button
