Hi. I have a question ,specially to owners of this phone. I'm going to buy this omnia and i saw in reviews two differend kind of icons in menu. Is it just matter of themes and it's possible to change it or it's something else?
Thanx for your reply.

I've been waiting for this phone since Feb. This is really agonising!
Tot it would b available in end May. Later found out only in UK. Went to check wif the Samsung World at Vivo (Singapore) and was told the release would be by end of Jun.
But when I asked the Samsung representative (think he's Korean) at CommuniAsia in Jun, he said end of the year for HD (I re-confirmed wat he said). However, he claimed Omnia 2 will be available by Jul. But I was still hopeful to get the phone soon.
Saw HD working set at one of the Samsung shops last week, asked and was told end of this mth is Omnia 2 and only 2 mths aft then HD will be launched.
Another Samsung shop said HD will be in this mth.
So many versions!! Who to believe??? How to wait? I WANNA CHANGE PHONE!
Anonymous, 06 Jul 2009I contacted Samsung South Africa directly and they told me it will be out at store at the end ... moreThanks for that. Will you please let me know when they have contacted you? I take it you don't know when it will be available on MTN?
