I bought the Samsung Omnia from my service provider on December 7th, 2009. I played around with it for a while, but the accelerometer wasn't working. I was told to do a hard reset, which fixed the accelerometer, but after that, the phone began to lag a large amount, even when no programs were running. I returned it and got a second Omnia, which the browser repeatedly crashed on, not helped by the useless hard resets. I got a THIRD Omnia which had the same error, until a hard reset, but by then the messed up my plan so I just returned it and am going to a feature phone. I have nothing against Samsung, I just don't think they worked all the bugs out of this before marketing it. My mother has the same phone and it has no problems. It's just not dependable. It has great features, but I was afraid it would break again and I didn't like the touch screen, which seemed unresponsive at times. It gets very hot while browsing, and battery life is poor. It wasn't easy to text on, though I liked the ui. Overall it is a nice phone with plenty of features, but not one you can depend on. It feels like it needs to be in a cushioned case at all times. I would go with a more durable device.

Does anyone know whether the latest software update is available thru the net for the Samsung i900 Omnia? Looks like they've forgotten about this once top of the line touchscreen phone. Even Windows 7 is only available for the latest Omnia HD phone.
