I've had this phone for a couple of days and here's a recap:
I got it with original 2007 firmware (DXHG4) and updated it with last month's firmware DXHI2... much better.
I also installed the Spb Mobile Shell 2, and I must say that app shell is a MUST... it greatly optimizes the phone's part (I just switched from an SE w610... simple phone, not smartphone), and it's way easier to use the phone with that software (I tried using it with oem samsung menus, but they lag a bit and aren't user friendly nor intuitive)... If you can grab this software then install it and enjoy a great phone with an excellent and very responsive OS.
I also use Windows Live services to use and sync my Live Contacts as my phone's contacts... This is excellent mainly because of the Live Contacts ability to be merged when duplicates exist... Its also an easy way to always have a backup of your contact list.
I have had this phone for more than two weeks now, and it seems to be working perfectly. There is a little lag time while opening menus and that can be sorted out by going to the task manager and ending unwanted processes. I did not even have to update ROM or anything. It is an excellent phone released by samsung. Omnia users enjoy!

Thanks for the info. I was assuming this could be a software/firmware issue. That is why I was hoping people from Europe would reply. I know that different factory shifts can result in problems associated with that manufacturing shift. Now, since seeing your post, it is a question of this or waiting for a full review of the new Blackberry. Thanks again.

I am very very interested in buying this lovely Omnia, but i have a question... Has any one here successfully used the gps navigation software - DESTINATOR ver.7 ?
I heard some softwares dont work due to the WQVGA screen sizing.
Thanks a lot!
