Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Dear ???,
At the moment I have a Nokia and I am a fan of Nokia because they work so easy!
Now I want to combine my phone and my PDA. I have chosen (within two weeks) for the Samsung Omnia i900 because it works on WM, so it is very simple to install thousands of additional prg's.
The second reason is that I don't like the design of the Nokia you're referring to. The Omnia is a much more modern phone, has a bigger screen, bigger memory, is a real PDA phone, etc., etc., etc..
Of course you have to choose yourself, but I have chosen for the Samsung Omnia with good reasons! I honestly thing this is the best phone at the moment (better that its biggest rivals Nokia N95/N96, HTC Touch diamond/pro and as some say the iPhone 3G).

So, with everyone that has this phone in north america, are you having much success with the GPS?... I would like to know before purchasing this unit.. and where did you buy it from? I like to make sure I get the cheapiest price.
to pepe: what do u mean use the bluetooth external? do u mean attach another device to my phone via bluetooth? or is there 2 devices on the omnia? i believe garmin xt is not licensed. which version should i get...the easiest one?
to pepe: it is garmin xt. when i run garmin it searches for my gps receiver and never finds it. not sure how to turn it on. there are 2 gps programs...external and enhanced...not sure what these are or how to set them up so it will work.
Hi, yes yesterday i was trying to take picture of sunset at night but the picture came out dark. IS this a hardware problem?
Huy, 04 Aug 2008just got mine in mail today. anyone know how to set MP3 to ringtones?you have to save a copy into the my ringtones folder in your my documents folder. When you save it in the my ringtones, it will appear on your options of sounds.
one thing is missing its a flash player.
i guess its not supporting it. but still good phone.
about GPS on this phone, go to the setting>system>then GPS. there are 2 diff GPS settings on the page, one is for built-in GPS reciever and the other one is external reciever. enable the built-in GPS, just like i did few days ago, using google map by Wi-Fi with built-in GPS reciever, it seems to me that the phone was able to get at least 5 diff satellites.
And What Is The Phones Compatibility Like With The Thousands Of Windows Mobile Application Out There?Will They Install Correctly Onto The Phone?
pepe, 05 Aug 2008The PDA version should workAnd The Display Resolution Wont Affect The Compatibility?
Anonymous, 04 Aug 2008Seems a fair way forward. I am an existing O2 customer, but not happy with their apathy over t... moreiv never delt with them but yeah they will be the same as any high street store, i think the only saving grace is that P4U dont have there own network so if we get it from them it should be on o2 voda etc anyway, or i think thats how it works it works with them. lol
