buy omnia at samsung stores, it is not locked to any network, it's open line, then have its rom upgraded at samsung service center in greenhills, the building in front of viramall across ortigas.
mine's rom version is hk3 and it's great
Does anyone have a problem regarding a blank screen. Im on my second Omnia and sending it back due to a problem of the screen not working after charging and on random occaisions. Th ephone is still on but the screen is completely blank and the only way to rectify is by resetting or switching the phone off and on. Im considering changing for a different phone all together but I really like the omnia. ANy advice regarding this matter?

So i guess its a mutual thing...Its not just my phone...:)...And About the ROM,right now i think i got the Singapore version..Cos when i go to Internet settings,they give me 3 Singapore Networks.(Sigtel,Starhub & H1)And GRPS is some IDEAS(WAP & MMS).....And internet is not working....:(...Im Using Grameen Phone network....So if i go tell them about this prob,will they set the network??
And no,i save them all to "My Storage"...But still at times it's low....And even though i install the software in "my Storage",the phone memory goes low And also the program memory....
Now i've gotta another prob...Btw,sorry to bother u & thank a ton for helping me..:)
My Short cut buttons are not working..I mean,its says"Error opening the shortcut or locating the target fine name)....The Task manager button & the camera button.....Any solutions for this???
Thanks again mate..
I owe you....:=D

KK, 02 Mar 2009Hey Tif Tif,
Thanks....So can i get it done from Singapore???..Cos these ppl over here dont... moreWell I'd assume there would be someone over in Singapore who would know how to fix and operate your omnia..
As for the ring tones do actaully have music like a song, when my omnia rings its quiet at first aswell but it takes only about 3 secs before it becomes loud and stays loud I have mine set to Vibrate and Ring so yea I think that just maybe the phone which is abit of a bummer really..
Now for Your memory, are you saving everything to My Documents??? Coz if so thats a bad thing, My Documents is actually the Phone's memory and not the 8GB, make sure if you want to have alot of free space save anything and everything you possibly can to the My Storage folder, I do and my phone never runs low on memory or is never slow, so yea I dont know if this answers your question,
If it does not eleborate the question a little more,
(Im having a bit a slow today sorry ^_^)
omnia user , 03 Mar 2009help! when im texting..i find d letters small...how can i configure it? i want it large enough... moreTo make the letters abit bigger you could always try changing it form the qwerty style to the actual phone pad on the screen, or the other alternative is to have the phone settings switched on to where you can turn it on its side and the screen will go to landscape and the qwerty letters become a tad bigger,
Hope this helps you
How is the music quality on speakers...does it have stereo speakers? wich one has a good cpu speed and also good quality music on speaker?
I need some help in choosing between the Omnia and M8800. Can any users give some suggestions?
Here is a little background:
I use these phone as entertainment, so the win mobile doesn't really matter for me.
The Second question is HAS the lastest firmware for i900 fix most of the bugs ex: memory, black screen, etc.
Thanks in advance for advice and answers
Furthermore i believe that its the time for Samsung to launch one or two phones (smartphones i think) with qwerty like Samsung F700. And if Samsung managed to make F700 in 2007 im sure that in 2009 they can make a very slim full-qwerty mobile phone with excellent features.
If you tell that this phone is bad you're wrong because it is made about one year before while its enemies Touch HD, N97 and Xperia were made some months ago. I believe that the Omnia HD isnt the real successor of Omnia (i900) but this will come by Samsung in the end of this year maybe named i9000 with windows 6.5 or 7, 3.8inches, new widgets, 8Megapixels, 32Giga plus microSD.
This phone is much better than SE Xperia. The stylus is better and the screen is better in touch. Also in some countries (like Greece) Xperia has not (at least, yet) translate the windows in the native language. Omnia-Xperia 3-0.

Ivan, 04 Mar 2009Hi all How to change the network to 2G instead of 3G? Pls help me...thks Ivanby default the phone only connects to gsm, the 3g is only connected when a data sesion is active, ie using the browser, video call or some online widgets will try to connect, you then simply click the 3g icon at the top of the screen and press disconnect!!
I love this phone. the stylus really should have had a place inside the phone, but it's not a real problem. Every thing else is wonderful. Amazing camera and everything.
i have sumsung omnia i900 but the problem is that the language used in that phone is german and i want to change from german to english.please help me i real like that phone is so gooooood
i900 now 3 weeks
it is an unfinished product. GPS hardly works or not at all!
More, worse even is that Samsung does not provide the POMISED tv-out cable. Helpdesk says: "it does not exist, sorry!" They did not even say sorry, btw!!
They advertise with it. Impossible for Samsung to connect their 'special' plug to a wire???
What a lousy service! (better: NO service!) They advertise and do not even apologize for not delivering.
Bad! Very bad! Shame on you Samsung!
Wonder what more surprises will reveal??
