I have Omnia for about a week now and it works really great. No problems yet, applications work fine, GPS iGO8 is excellent, battery life great.
The best phone I ever had..
I work at Vodafone Australia, the Omnia does not come with the GPS software pre-installed and neither does the Optus Omnia. You have to manualy do it yourself.
The only provider that will have pre-loaded maps will be the 3 network.
The omnia is amazing best phone ive ever had. if you want a good reliable phone then go with the omnia, much better than any N96
omnia and lg kc910 which is better???
cause from the comparison that i've made between them, kc910 is much better.
the price also kc910 is much cheaper
so can you guys give a comment a sincerely...
please dont give a comment about the company but the handphone only..
Hello Man from oz.
Optus omnia have no nav software included...I found out the hard way after taking the phone home!
Omnia comes with data cable for connection to your PC. You install the active sync program on you PC (included with the package CD) and this allows you to do all the things that nokia PC suite would do for your nokia.
It's fast and efficient.
Any Omnia users from Australia need some help please
I am looking at getting this phone and have seen posts that the optus version dont come with any maps or software is it the same with Vodafone? Also is there a way that can transfer between phone and pcs haven t found out if ther data cable included in the box and is there a transfer program included like the nokia have
Any help greatly appreicated
Here are some answers to your questions.
1. emails and SMS work very well using the samsung soft keyboard on the omnia and I have large fingers. Sometimes the phone can slip out of my hands if not careful due to its smooth surface finish.
2. handwriting recognition is OK though I dont use it much (at all really)
3.direct sunlight visibility is below average. I try to save battery power by unchecking the backlight tabe, though this makes it almost impossible to read in sunlight.
4. you magnify the pictures and web pages by sliding one finger vertically (a special slider bar appears). You cant use 2 fingers at once becuase the omnia's resistive screen cannot sense two independant points on the screen...only one. It works very well but not as flashy or smooth as an iphone.
5. I never use the stylus, even with my large fingers. I use it like an iphone so the sylus remains in the box.
6.trackpad works very well, in mouse mode and in 4 way mode...I use 4 way mode and it has exceeded my expectations....And I have oily fingers too.
help~omnia innov8 wich is better? dnt say about the camera.... whos sound quality is better?
Hi and respect to all of you.
I got some questions coz i am really looking to buy this phone. I would really appreciate if you can help me.
I am pretty sure the phone specs are great but I never used a fully touchscreen phone before(current one is SE p1i), so
1-how does the Omnia perform in daily task such as writting sms, emails etc fast. Is the digital keyboard OK or is it a hassle to use sometimes??
2-How is the handwritting recognition??
3-Is the visibility OK in direct sunlight?
4-Do you magnify picture/web page the same way you do on the Iphone(i.e using two fingers)
5-Can you use all aplications and browse webpage with your finger only, or are you compel to use the stylus in some cases?? ( P1i users will know what a hassle this may be)
6-How user-friendly is the trackpad?? (i have very oily n damp hands, and i believe this mightt be useful)
thanks to anyone who reply
Samsung i900 Omnia is one of the best windows mobile phones...
it's really amazing !!
i already buy it just a week ago... with 705$
To save - you would have to manually move the file onto the card memory - normally drag and paste works. I have the same problem - if only I knew how to move the default memory to being the memory card - this will save on the hassles.

Anonymous, 23 Nov 2008in the settings you can turn the password off.
