Mohamed, 29 Jul 2009I bought it yesterday from El7alwagy in Dokki for 5000 LE (8GB).Congratulations man!
Wish you a good and happy life with it.
Looking forward to seeing your video samples ;)
like no otha, 29 Jul 2009hd wanna be...i like ur name man ,just hope u write it (omnia hd wanna be)
see this man
... moreConcerning my nick name, I would love to man, but I'm not sure if it is called Omnia any longer.
Concerning the firmware issue, apparently you were trying to help, but unfortunately this made me even more confused :) but thanks anyway.
May be the safest option for me is to wait till it's officially launched in Egypt, hopefully with the new firmware installed along with the Arabic language (I only need it for messaging, not for the menus).
Just want to know man, what is your impression about the video recording, I mean your personal experience. And it would be wonderful if you'r able to upload sample videos on some website.
Thanks and best wishes for a long life with your phone.

I havent found a legitimate version of the update anywher, and samsung assured me you can only get it from one of their authorised depos.
From what i can tell, the latest IE7 update does bugger all.
The phone is still ace, and unmached by anything, i just wish they would pull their fingers out and sort the problems.
Anyone else watch today/tonight? Scary about the mobile phones and effect it could have on us all as users. I wonder if the use of a headset would limit these effects on us.

You can then update it by connecting phone to computer and running Samsung update program.

When i spoke to Samsung about this originally they said it was a widespread fault that many people were experiencing. Apparently it was a firmware issue. They said it had been resolved with the latest firmware update (IE7), which you cannot download. Anyway, i had to send it back to samsung for a week to get it fixed. They put the new firmware on, but the spanners sent the phone back without testing it, so i still have the broken log files!
Now Samsung say i have to send the phone back, which i'm not too pleased about!
Ill keep you updated anyway.
Would you say its better to sell this phone and wait the few weeks for the new release from samsung or ? Like when will you be able to purchase the new one off ebay and what price do you think ? If someone could please please get back to me. Thanks.
when SAMSUNG gonna release the new firmware for omnia hd all over the world (same as Italy firmware) ??!!
i bought omnia hd before 2 weeks (UAE-Dubai) from Jumbo Electronics, but it's still record video in AMR codec :(
come on SAMSUNG, I was waiting for this mobile more than 6 months, so how long should I wait to get the new firmware ????!!!!
I've the strange broken log files appearing within the media album, i think those files for backup purpose !!!!
maybe !!! but really those file annoying me !
anon, 29 Jul 2009i love this phone but the battery goes sooo quick i charged it for the appropriate time when i... moreAs for battery time... With firmware IE7 (purchased mine with this fw, don't ask me 'bout former firmwares...) it is a widely known fact that using pc studio causes the battery to lose charge in a very short time. to avoid this everyone should restart the device after each pc connection. I did so and now with using the phone all day long for emailing and net browsing battery lasts up to 20 hours. a pal of mine hardly ever uses net connection thus gets battery life for 2 whole days.
so folks, you better be careful when using pc studio or at least restart when finished! Hope it would work.
all best, Tanba from Hungary

I got my phone in May and the battery life had been incredible. Even by the end of the night i would usually have full battery.
However, now i have had my firmware update, astonishingly my battery is practically dead by about lunch time. I genuinely feel that this battery issue is firmware related. This would explain the difference in experiences!

Joining these forums will help you improve. anyway about the amoled.. it's true they are wear out. but depends on the colour, for instance.. what I heard of blue has shorter life time. but don't worry.. it wouldn't happenned until as fast as 5 years. by then you don't want the phone much longer anyway. hope it'll help :).
