Forget... moremay be u got the swollen fingers. omnia together with I phone, and 5800 express music etc are all designed to type w/o using stylus. BTW, omnia has NINE input options which include keyboard (like i ph), normal keypad (can type with single thumb), paired keyboard (like ones u see on SE P1i), plus handwritten methods..
Without a built in stylus this phone is a disaster. It simply doesn't work without one. Forget trying to use fingers to type on the screen. Even a babies fingers arn't that small. Why do you think a PC keyboard is the size it is.
can someone help im sending music and photos to my omnia and i want to save them to my mem card. how do i do this? thanks
who had really bought n used this phone can tell me any problems u faced in this phone?
Is it possible to take off the threaded text format and just have each text mesage separate?
I'm planning to buy one but have some questions:
-are the softwares as easy to find like symbian phones?
-is there anyway to get flash lite 3.0?
-any disadvantages besides mentioned by gsm(be honest)?
Whats the best gps software for this phone???, i was looking to get the google navigator, looks just great, i got the spb mobile shell and is great, i love it, makes the phone faster, and the interface looks better, whats the best website to get all this stuff??? and get it for the best price??? I'll be waiting for your reply, u can write to my email if u own an omnia will be better erick**rosas**rojas @ gmail.com

Marcus, 01 Dec 2008to REXHA... ive been a long time sony-ericsson user and have just moved from my k800 to sam... moreSeem like when u buy high end phs, its down to ur luck. I bought N96 right after it was released in singapore and its worse than rubbish. ph hangs , slow, switch off when making video call, media player can't see mp3s from 16gb drive etc.. and problem are endless. I went down to nokia service center twice and flush firmware but probs still there. I sold that sh!t and now i m with omnia. Everything works great and it is fast, touch screen is gd and responsive, everything is just great and I dun need to use stylus. samsung UI is good enough. It never hangs or freeze within a month of my usage so far. screen resolution is ok and can compare with phs such as Nseries and sonyericsson cybershot phs, etc. ( I had those phs so i can say that). BUT dont go and compare with iph!!. There are two things that u have to consider when u buy omnia, 1) screen is very poor under direct sunlight . 2) battery life is just one day with moderate use. Do note that samsung phs always have poor batt life even though they claim similar amount of capacity with other brands. But to conclude, those two weaknesses dont bother me coz I dun play games or surf net under the sun and I charge every night b4 sleep. DONE.
Does anyone stuggle to hear the person on the other end of their Omnia? Does that person find it hard to hear you?
REXHA, 29 Nov 2008Hi for ALL Is there any OMNIA Users, who can give some review for his/her phone?? 'cuz I'm... moreI suggest you to go for SAMSUNG i900 OMNIA.Its keyboard works good and professional.
Chad, 01 Dec 2008you have no idea what your talking about . closing the programs is so easy all you have to d... morei do admit that i am brand new to smart phones/windows mobile. i was simply stating what i know of the omnia. the best phone ive had is the SE k800. though i dont recomment it because it is dated. as far as smart phones go, i have no idea whats the best. but if the omnia is considered good, id like to know why.
Marcus, 01 Dec 2008to REXHA...
ive been a long time sony-ericsson user and have just moved from my k800 to sam... moreyou have no idea what your talking about .
closing the programs is so easy all you have to do is go to settings and theres an option which says "close programs by hitting "X" . if you enable that then no problem. so me knowing that u dont know that option also tells me that you have no idea to configure the camera settings to MAX . other than that since you know so much about phones what do you reccommend ?
ive been a long time sony-ericsson user and have just moved from my k800 to samsungs omnia. and all i can say is that im very disappointed.
the display has poor pixel density, only 65k colours, and is barely visible outside (in natural light).
the touch screen is very weak (low response). scolling/sliding through lists will often have you selecting items/apps that you didnt want. the close 'X' in the top right of the screen is small and difficult to hit (though you will get used to it).
the user interface is slow and buggy. many of your person settings (ie. default input method) will not be remembered after a "re-boot".
a lot of the basic customisations (mp3 sms and alarm alerts) require fiddling around with (locating files to specific directories).
the sms input is clunky and non-user friendly (you can only see 2 lines of your outgoing message at a time, predictive text isnt smart, wont learn your favourite words.
you will constantly have to open task manager/switcher and close your apps, because hitting the end key will not do this.
there are very few good games and applications availavle (thats not to say there wont be more coming out).
5MP camera has poor performance indoors and in low light.
phonebook is sturctured sirname first. and if you want to customise this setting, you must do it contact by contact.
there are some good features of this phone. you can mute incoming call alerts and alarm tones by turning the phone screen-down. and the smart reader is quite good.
all in all.... i recommend you stay away from this phone, unless you feel you can put up with or fix its many faults.
NESS, 30 Nov 2008I'm a user of Nokia N95 and also a bit Fan of Nokia, but I decided to Buy a Samsung Omnia and ... moreDear Ness,
Personally I prefer the Nokia E71 because I don't like Windows Mobile 6.1. At the moment I have an Omnia but I'm to dependent of a touch screen only. Also I miss a build-in stylus and, as said, I don't like WM; to complicated and slowww. Symbian is much faster and easier to use.
My choice will be the Nokia E71 because it has a full QWERTY-keyboard. Software is NO problem at all! By the way, the E71 is also cheaper that the Omnia!
So my advice is to stay at Nokia. I hope you will make the right choice and will enjoy your new phone for a long time!
Best regards, Jason.
