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.
Hello, I'm debating on whether I should get the Samsung f480 or the I900 tomorrow. Any suggestion? I live in the U.S. Will the 3G be any good for me? I also wants to know how do I use the GPS and do I need any additional data package? Much thanks for your answer.
Any chance on the next model having a xenon flash??? It's the only thing missing and yet makes such a difference, especially when comparing it to phones like n82, 6220 classic, my SE 810, LG Viewty etc... Why can't everybody finally agree that Xenon flash is a must when someone is dishing out over 500 Euros!!!!!!
Can't wait for a WM phone like this WITH a xenon flash!!!!

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970symbian phones are just as good as windows...i used both symbians and windows.
I am a first time Windows Mobile user and after some research I bought this smart phone and so far I am quite impressed and happy with what it can do, except for some small glitches.
What I'd really like to know is what do I need to do or download so I can watch streaming videos on this phone as I'd on a regular desktop?
I know there are a lot of tech-savvy gurus out there about smart phones, please help!
