Android is an open source platform driving all Android phones, it could significantly increase the risk of hacking these devices. If this happens, then locking mobiles as a security measure will be a mockery.
its your choice
i've had this phone for 3 months now and its great for facebook actually see facebook like you would on a pc , but it doesnt have custom ringtones or messages or use bluetooth to other phones! so if i new this before i signed a contract i think i would of gone with the galaxy s. this phone is good but it still has alot of faults.
I have been a user of Samsung Omnia 7 for 2 months... And I have to say that I love it (and Windows Phine 7) very much... :P
iam considering to buy this phone but can you please tell me how is the ringtone volume because i had a hd7 and the ringing volume was lowwww
I've had this phone for about 3 weeks now and I'm lovin it more and more every day. Best things are the smoothness and speed... it never freezed, has no lags... brilliant. Syncing is also many times faster than my iPhone, everything runs as it suppoused to be. User experience is the best I've had (used iPhone over 3 years and tried my friends Galaxy S). WP7 is a new os and a little raw, but it's completly usable. I love the minimal design of WP7, it feels fresh, unlike overdesigned (designless) Androids and iPhone wich is almost exactly the same over 3 years cannot see much progress, just sea of icons). The Amoled screen is real pleasure to look at. At the moment Omnia 7 is the best WP7 phone. I also believe most of the people commenting here never tried or used this phone. I'm not a fan of any brand or OS, but I'm talking out of my own experience. Love this phone and WP7!
WP7 is no doubt the best os on the market today and to put it on Omnia 7 is incredible. I've had mine for about 2 months now and I have nothing but good words about it.
If anyone is considering buying this phone , I wouldn't listen to most of the posts on this website, I get the feeling 90% of them don't actually own the phone.Microsoft have done a great job with the os,and samsung have done a great job producing a phone which is lightning fast, it never freezes,screen is second to none,games run smooth as silk,internet,youtube work seamless , you CAN purchase software outside U.S not like some people have posted.Video and photo's are excellent(much better than omnia 2).
This phone is highly recommended.
Libby, 29 Jan 2011does anyone know how to have a song for your ringtone instead of the preloaded ones?can't
Socionicer, 20 Feb 2011I plugged my new Omnia 7 to PC with USB-cable (I live in Germany). It was don't recognized. Wh... moreYou have to download the ZUNE progran first. It's in the instruction manual.
Anonymous, 17 Feb 2011which is better wp7 or andriod..??For now, I think Android is a better choice. Let WP7 mature and see what Microsoft has in store for the betterment of this OS. And it could be great in the future.
I plugged my new Omnia 7 to PC with USB-cable (I live in Germany). It was don't recognized. Why? How can I connect my phon to computer?

rebel, 14 Feb 2011wp7 still bad i preferred android the last.too many restrictions.u cannot officially get apps ... moreAs we do not have much control over application installation and other feature in Apple iPhone, on top of it iPhone steals data (formally by putting it in terms and condition) and user related information which includes personal information of end user.
Had different expectation from Windows Phone but it seems here also user do not have much control on his/her own phone. I hope at least Windows Phone 7 OS do not steals Data? If anyone is having information on this, kindly share.
