Hi guys hope all is well. I am fairly new to samsung phones but have been reading the raving reviews on the Omnia. A friend of mine recently purchased a samgsung instinct from sprint and he is very pleased with the phone. I just want to make the best decision as these phones are quite expensive. Any thoughts or recommendations where to put my $$$$$. THX

G, 14 Sep 2008Love my Omnia, however people saying it is hard to hear me on the phone.... are there any adj... morethere is a solution a read yesterday an engineer code you tap into the phone pad which alows you to adjust the volume! unfortunatley i cant find the page today, but i will keep looking and post when i find it. i tried it and it works!
for the start,interface may be hard to get used to (previously using nokia)
-touch screen pretty sensitive, sometimes may executive wrong command (e.g dialing/web browsing)
- audio cracks seriously for video recording(especially noisy environment), kinda laggy when record in VGA quality,QVGA is fine
- you may wanna consider an additional battery on the go if your a slightly heavier user of the phone features
some reference if you find it useful
Do you know any site where to find a freeware for my omnia ?? .. please write me on firstname.lastname@example.org .. thanks
hi all wonder if anyone can help me . when i recieve anything through bluetooth it comes up low storage so ive set the memory to go to my storage and then i can find the item that had transferred also is there anyway you can change the back screen menu colour (mines white) as you can on the tocco and its better in the light ..
to every one with camera/memory issue, you need to go into the camera settings and set the save folder to my storage, otherwise you are saving the images to the small 100mb ¨my device memory¨! which is why you get this message, also if you install applications on the phone again use ¨my storage¨ or you will have the same issue.
Hello, i hope somebody can help me, i dont have much stuff downloaded on my Omnia, but when i want to use camera it says that camera requires 5 mb of free space, meanwhile i have 8G and its not in use....can someone tell me what to do in order to use all that free space and make my camera work?

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Aren't there any mods on forum or what. This is the Samsung Omnia forum, not the iPhone forum. This will not be happening on the Avforums website or any other forum, except here it seems. My girlfriend has got the iPhone 3G, and it is a great phone but without BT, a decent camera, no option to expand the memory, etc. I prefer the Omnia to the iPhone, hence, why i visit this forum, and not the iPhone forum, so, can we please concentrate on just posting information that relates to omnia, pleeeese.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970What did you say? omnia kicked iphone's ass? Unfortunately for the omnia, that is not what the sales figure show. So I do believe it's the other way around =)
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970You are not making sense and you are being irrelevant and off the wall.
Maybe because Omnia fans just love to diss the iphone that I decided to share my thoughts about your phone as well. Obviously I have no control over those people who go to the iphone section to bad mouth the iphone, just like you have not control of people like me who decided to retaliate. So what do we do? Deal with it =)
This phone has everything, but the lack of stylus is rediculous. Who wants a donggle stylus?!
Anonymous, 15 Sep 2008Actually the iphone is for professionals, and the omnia is for kids. You know why? A pro wil... moreAt about 8am in the morning, or 3pm in the afternoon, you see lots of people walking on the street, on the cross walk, with ear phones in the ears listening to music using ipods and all types of mp3's. These are school kids. It would be nice that they don't have to carry another piece of hardware if they have a mp3 and also can use as a phone, SMS and occasionally, take some pictures. This is why iphone is so popular because it is highly demanded by school kids. Iphones are good, very good, for kids.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970500 cd's would equal to around 7000 songs. So yes, you would still have room for another 500 cd's in the iphone. Although I really think it's impractical and silly, but yes, there's plenty of room for your 500 cd's in the iphone. And the best thing about it is, you don't have to deal with a memory card and the pain of having to make sure you're saving files into your memory card and not your phone memory.

It is because of class. Why are suits that are made in Italy that much expensive than those made in China. It is the fit, the cutting and more importantly, the class. You may be right that a 2 mp camera is sufficient for taking pictures and view them on your cell phones. The fact is when people see your iphone and comment that "Oh, it is nice, but what type of camera do you have". Your answer will be, " It is a 2mp camera but it should be Ok." This is why I said iphones are for kids because they just take pictures with their phone and don't care about what quality of pictures it produces. As I mentioned before and I'd like to emphasize it again, it doesn't matter if you need more pixels or not. It is "class". A 2mp camera is considered a toy camera. On the other hand, how can you classify a phone as a 3G phone when you cannot even send MMS with your phone. Don't tell me if you don't need to send MMS. or you can send it by email. That is not the point. The point is, once again, "Class".
