It is not a phone. It is a pocket PC and also a pocket home teather.
I realy do appreciate the seller who offered it to me instead of a HTC.
I recomment it to mobile fans who their device is some thing more than for just calling and answering.
Best phone ever!OMNIA>IPHONE! People just find it a bad phone because they haven't truly unleash it's power. Firstly, yes it's a bad phone when you first get it.
Second, upgrade it to spb mobile shell 3.xx+ immediately you can feel the omnia at it's best!
Third,it has many custom themes and apps to play around with, example: iphone slide to unlock, ipod player (exactly the same as itouch/iphone music player), built in GPS with good GPS softwares, bloody 8GB/16GB internal memories means i can watch movie and play games forever! Lastly, it's relatively light and has good graphics and camera, which is why i love it compared to an iphone! Iphone are for little kids!

The new Samsung touchscreens they bringing out now, doesn`t touch this phone,in fact my friends are sorry they bought them. I`ve had this phone for over a year now, and I`ve never had any trouble with it. I`ve compared it to phones like the Blackberry 9700 and iPHONE 3GS, and it still comes up tops, but for such a great phone, Samsung MUST make a plan and insert a slot for the stylus, it cannot hang on the side, it ends up scratching the phone, come on Samsung, you can do better than that. herc 73 plse answer my question from Terrance, thanks.

i had my omnia for two years now and after so many hit and miss on its functionality, installing and removing programs that suit me well, and eventually loving it (good camera, great sound), now i am facing a problem that i am thinking of trying a different unit.
my omnia has problem now in its USB terminal...perhaps, it has become loose in the terminal, i am having problem when charging and listening to music using the earphone.
the flat terminal i think isn't working well. samsung should discontinue using this. my other samsung phone which had the same usb terminal had the same problem, too....
Absolute crap!! DO NOT BUY!! I hate this phone, it changes it's ringtones, alarms go off randomly and inthe middle of the bloody night and it swithces it's volume off constantly!! DISGUSTING PIECE OF CRAP, I wouldn't give it away not even to my worst enemy!

its now two days that ive traded my omnia for HTC HD2.God the phone was horrible.no matter how hard u try fixing things its awful.now with HD2 im getting thereal meaning of win mobile n technology.it jus was a waste of time n money
I have the omnia i900 uk version for 2 years now (got it on release day!!) I have had multiple versions of winmo 6.1 and 6.5 installed and have found it to be the best handset I have used! I am currently running winmo 6.5 professional with opera mobile 10 browser, garmin mobile xt sat nav software, mobile office, wi-fi remote keyboard & mouse for my media center pc, etc etc. Winmo maybe plain and sometimes fiddly, but with some modding and playing around you can make it totally personal!! Recommended handset even now!!

I bought this phone 2 weeks ago, so far excellent windows mobile as well as sound quality. As you said if I can upgrade to win 6.5 would be better, but gsmarena mentioned that upgrade to win 6.5 is not possible. Can you tell me how pls?

I work selling cellphones, and really, along with some htc mobiles, this is still one of the best cellphones ever built. There are "unlimited" apps for the omnia. and the battery lasts like 4 or 5 days ( I use wifi and bluetooth all day). It is true that the original version of widows mobile that comes with the omnia is a little bit poor (just the interface, since the OS is really good), but man!! you can tune it and it will look and work like omnia II or other many good phones!
This phone is horrible, the touch screen is very very poor! You have widgets (shortcuts) that you have to take off the task bar then select them, then move them back on to the task bar to get rid of em when your done......um not really a shortcut if I can get to the program in 3 clicks anyway! When you minimize stuff it just disappears
anyoone have locking issues with this phone?
often when i lock+unlock the screen freezes
is there something i can do to fix this?
I can`t open messaging on my omnia, neither I can receive or send sms, mms, or e-mails. I tryed hard reset but it didn`t help. Can some1 pls help THANX
I got the i900 aka "Omnia I" in october, its does what I need it to do, but I have some complaints. 1) can not read the screen when outside in daylight. 2) the screen will lock up and only display half of what you are looking at. Has anyone found any covers, or cases that help with reading the screen in daylight, and are there any either Windows OS upgrades or samsung upgrades that will smooth out some of the locking up issues?
buddies shud i buy omnia i900 or SE xperia x1???
both are available in same price...
