Did anybody upgrade latest firmware from sumsung website?
I read a note from http://www.whymobile.com/
which has the below warning...
Please do NOT upgrade your Samsung Omnia to the latest firmware as we have received multiple reports of dead phones after performing a firmware upgrade. If the firmware is not a Singapore version it may also void your WARRANTY.
how? i actually planned to install it as i need to read and type chinese sms and email.
crazylegsmurphy, 03 Sep 2008Hello All, I was thiiiissss close to picking up an iPhone today because I didn't think ther... moreyep dude...it works everywhere in the world...and abt msn it definitely supports that...other than that its a great phone so u wont be dissapointed
I was thiiiissss close to picking up an iPhone today because I didn't think there was anything else out there...but something made me hold off.
I have just spent the last 4 hours reading every review and watching every video I could on this phone and I have to say, if my last two questions can be answered, I will be getting this phone without a doubt.
Here is my first and foremost question/concern.
I live in Canada, but I will be going traveling for a year. None of the providers here in Canada seem to carry this phone, so will I be able to use it both at home, and around the world as I travel?
I was looking online here ( http://www.timtechs.ca/sim_free_samsung_sgh_i900_omnia_prd351.html) (I hope it's ok to post this), and it says:
"Quad Band: Yes
GSM: Yes, 850/900/1800/1900
Compatible with: AT&T-Cingular, T-Mobile, Fido, Rogers and other GSM Carriers Worldwide:
Now, I admit I know very little about this, but will I be able to take advantage of a fast 3G network at home, as well as full functionality around the world with this phone?
Secondly, is this a good price for a phone in Canada?
And finally, does this phone run MSN messenger?
Thanks for your time. If any of you have any other information that I may have overlooked I would greatly appreciate any info you might have.
Does anyone know where to log in to upgrade the Omnia ROM? How do you choose the different layer of the Menu on Omnia?
How do I set vibration or ringing mode as alerts for messages, phone calls and etc.
Can any1 knows whats the policy of uprgading from an older version of WM(6.1) to a newer one (WM7)
i mean, can i upgrade this phone to WM7 when WM7 is released?
extra money? or free? or if its even possible to do such thing.
james, 03 Sep 2008I do not understand why did they not provide for the stylus with the phone other wise there ar... morethe stylus should be provided in the package... it is not attached to the phone...its externally....
does ur firmware has the samsung keyboard? it is similar to the iphone keyboard where the letters are alot bigger and easier to input
Too all Omnia Users:
Have you tried running 320x240 Apps and Games in Omnia? Did they all worked?
I do not understand why did they not provide for the stylus with the phone other wise there are so small letters sometimes that it is difficult to use always by your finger
please some one answer me and satisfy the point

James, 02 Sep 2008Active Sync does work with Vista. I have been using it for about six months with i780 and now ... moreJames, I thought it rather odd. Any advice then to make it run? Apart from synchronization PC to phone what else do you need it for anyway?
How is the web browsing on the phone, video playback, and is it available for the US yet?

The Omnia has been released. . . and I got it today! My first impression: VERY GOOD!!!
I got a millionaire pack, which contains of course the Omnia, a blue tooth earphone, a voucher for a leather case and a promotional booklet from Millionaire. Of course it also contains a cable for PC connection, music phone and a power cable, CD, etc.
I do not understand why some persons are complaining about the screen? Maybe it can be better, but it is MORE than acceptable!
When I have some experiences with it I will try a to write a personal review. But again, my first impression is very good!
Oh yes one last thing: the back version is completely black and the white version has a very nice metal frond and a very white back. For me personally it is a little to white.
