a couple more questions...
nokia have always been good on the phonebook management...
does this phone still duplicate phone & sim contacts? or does it only show phonebook entries or sim entries?
oh & the alarm settings, does it still have those really boring ringtones eg. alarms that you can sleep through or something that will wake your neighbors?
what does Samsung proprietary connectivity port mean for usb?

sandy, 07 Apr 2009hi am about to purchase this phone,and i've never used a samsung before cos am a nokia fan.but... moreI am not a fan couse of the name of the phone as long as the phone is good. I cant give you an advice its your money and your choice but if you ask me, I would go with the Omnia. It does have more features like the divx read and xvid also a better camera it has 8 to 16 geg of internal mem. and on top of that its expendable to 32 gegs, the biggest diferecne here is the OS, other than that it has nice big screen and a sleek design.
sandy, 07 Apr 2009hi am about to purchase this phone,and i've never used a samsung before cos am a nokia fan.but... moreHi Sandy
It depends on what you want to do with the phone... if you just want a touch screen, and a phone that can play music good, then go for the NOKIA 5800, but if you want a phone that does that and more, choose the OMNIA

tyecat, 06 Apr 2009The Sim Card slot is where the battery is housed.So do i have to actually OPEN the phone to put in my SIM card? Because in pics the SIM card slot waz next to the memory card slot. On my Omnia there is onli the memory card slot.
Anonymous, 06 Apr 2009my dauter wants a samsung Omnia do you recomend it? I highly recommend this phone for your daughter, beats iphone hands down. Takes a bit of getting used to, that's about it. Meaning where certain things are housed and the Keyboard.
