I am thinking which phone I should get. The Nokia n96 or Samsung omnia? Also is there a software where I can get the qwerty keyboard on the omnia?
hi omnia lovers, i just want to ask where i can download the new software HI1 or HI2 that will not harm my phone? i tried to go to their website but they only offer HH3 software which i believe is not so good rom ( as i read all the comments ).
thanks in advance !
tqsf2007, 02 Oct 2008Hello, I'm debating on whether I should get the Samsung f480 or the I900 tomorrow. Any suggest... moreI wud suggest U go fr Samsung F480 rather than Omnia.F480 has a cover provided by Samsung. The cover is a great function n many a times it fell from my hand n saved by the cover where as Omnia doesnt have a cover
The only glitch is I cant change the icons on left side e.g Iwant calculator in place of B'Day icon.
Samsung i8510 is nice but don't have touchscreen..,.,., .Please tell me some sites where I can see more about samsung i900 because I want to buy one. Is the best phone I have ever seen.
i rather buying Samsung i8510 innov8 than Samsung i900 Omnia.innov8 got all we need and its friendly user.not like omnia.i mean way better than omnia itself. so yeah, you guys had to think yourself sometimes that we buy phone depends on quality,not quantity. :) peace.
i can send u the English rom, please email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
I just got the Samsung i900, but everything is in Chinese. Can someone please tell where and how I can upgrade the Rom and change the language to English? I'm in U.S. and using AT&T. Thanks much for your help...

Anyone can help? How do i change the option so that all my sms won't be in the deleted items?? Or is it preset for this phone??
if you are interested in upgrading roms, and dont feel confident doing it yourself, then take it to a samsung service center, they can do it for you.!!

Tubac guy, 02 Oct 2008After reading user comments here and elsewhere, I am having second thoughts about buying the i... moreive had the phone now since the 4th of sept, and firmly believe that most of the problrms people are having with the phone is because of 2 reasons, they dont know how to use it/ adjust all the settings, or they are using an old rom ( HI2 is the latest available)and very good!!!!! i love this phone and have never looked back since i got it, there were a few probs with earlier roms, and i experienced a few. the only thing you mentioned that i can somewhat agree with is the screen can be hard to see in sunlight, but its never been that much of an issue for me! other than that, its brilliant, go for it, trust me you wont regret it..
david, 01 Oct 2008turn on my phone nothing is working?touch screen not working help.....You need to activate the touch screen..There are bit complications in the begining.. YOu must activate it with the help of the sales staff. I realy ate up the sales girl brain :P
got this phone on tmobile uk upgrade got unlocking code to use on o2.
so far so good, like the phone very good touch screen, which is hard to find other than iphone.
all i need is a case for this phone and also more importantly can someone pls assist in linking my yahoo e-mail to the device.
thamks and for those interested i would reccomend it so far
Jokes On You, 02 Oct 2008Ok I currently have a samsung omnia and it is running on DXHH3/DXHH3. I have had a couple of p... more1) H3's rom has a problem with the backlight and motion sensor clashing with some programs and it is normal
2) have u tried putting the skin cab into the My Documents of the phone?
3) that error means one or two of ur programs are being forced to run in the omnia as not all programs are able to run at 3.2inches display size, e.g. core player
4) for the moment, SPB has the best backup system, i suggest u to connect ur omnia to the pc and move everything into the pc OR move everything to the memory card (if it has a large storage capacity)
5) in the settings --> system --> power --> power save --> tick box BUT the omnia will lag abit and slower
6) Settings --> personal --> today --> items
7) changing to another rom would do so as other rom may have taken away the google maps, media album, rss so that the RAM and ROM has more space
if u want to get more batt life, u can consider to get the H1
but for the moment, the best rom to get is the I1
After reading user comments here and elsewhere, I am having second thoughts about buying the i-900. Currently using a Nokia N73, the biggest piece of garbage on the market and I can't wait to get rid of it. But, from what I am reading here, the i-900 has the same basic problems: slow system response, slow typing, SMS and texting capabilites, poor display in sunlight and terrible customer support.
If you have used this phone for more than one week and live in Europe, are you having any of these problems? I can't find anyone who believes in the Windows Mobile O.S. and several say this is the main source of problems. Any objective answers? I wasted a lot of money on my Nokia and don't want to waste almost twice as much on this phone if it is more of the same.
Ok I currently have a samsung omnia and it is running on DXHH3/DXHH3. I have had a couple of problems and if anyone can answer any of questions it would be greatly appreciated.
1.when I was running the today screen and SPB mobile shell my motion senser stopped responding. After a hard reset it works fine but I was wondering what caused this glitch and is it possible to fix?
2. I tried to install some skins for the mobile shell and afterwards some of the icons disappeared and some changed. Is there something I did wrong and if so what are the correct steps?
3. What is a shell32.exe error?
4. What is the best way to backup my data? My active sync connects for a while then says looking for changes then disconnects because of an error and SPB backup also gives me an error.
5. Is there a way to improve battery life ?my battery life is good but im constantly texting and on the web so I want to extend the battery a little bit more.
6. Is there a way to change what is on the today screen?
7 I read somewhere that it is possible to optimize so that there is more memory and RAM how would I do this?
Overall this is a good phone I have just had some third party issues.
