People, I have read some of the comments. I have to clear something up for the guys who haven't exactly checked the phone.
Omnia II i8000 with wm6.5 IS PROBLEMATIC.
Omnia II i8000 with wm6.1 WORKS FINE.
I got monie from the internet with 6.5.
I took the necessary risks and flashed the phone to wm6.1. It works nice and I have put quite a few applications and it's a GOOD phone!!
Now I'm looking for the wm6.5.3 which I hope it doesn't have the problems of wm6.5
BARE IN MIND THAT I FLASHED A CUSTOMISED ROM.
I DO NOT USE THE SAMSUNG OFFICIAL ROMs BECAUSE THEY ARE MADE IN THE COMPANY FROM PEOPLE WHO GET PAID EVERY END OF THE MONTH!! (= don't care about roms).
I use customised roms by USERS of the phones that have put time, effort "and love" into what they make and those roms are better than the official ones.
I had the same when I used HTC (CRAP PHONES) and now with samsung. BUT if you have a choice of the windows on the omnia, go for 6.1 !!
I hope I helped!

yes the tv out feature for videos works and you can buy the tv out cable in the Samsung Service Centre and do not use other tv out cable except the Samsung tv out cable for this OMNIA II ok and about the wifi go to your "Netwotk Settings" after that go to "Browser Connections" and click the "Automatically detect Settings" ok...
To Samsung4life: how do i make sure that it's the wifi connection im using not the gprs? before i open ie or opera, i always make sure that im connected to the wifi ssid, but i wonder why my prepaid load seems to get used up after i browse on the internet.do i have to disable anything on my phone?
to Samsung 4 life or any one who knows:
does the tv out feature for videos really work? i tried to view videos on a television screen using a canon camera's tv-out cable.(the package doesnt include a tv-out cable and i dont know where in qc, rp, can i buy one.) i could hear the sounds but the images of the video i took didnt appear on the screen.i also tried it on a hdmi capable tv, i dont know what to select, to play the videos.
zoky, 30 Aug 2010can windows mobile run android app.

Windows Mobile and Android are two different OS. Each has it`s own apps. It is not possible to run a WM app on Android or vise versa. Hope this answers your question.
