I just bought this phone today and I thought I was lucky that I bought the last one but sadly I was wrong. The phone was quite sluggish also I barely could see the screen in sun. But what really grind my gears was the fact that the Wi-Fi did not work at all! I took it back to the store, the technician look at it for nearly 4 hours and still could not solve this issues. I researched for hours online for countless solutions but none solved mine. And apparently I'm not the only one with wi-fi problems, many people have been have trouble detecting or being connected to wireless networks. I'm carry the phone back to exchange it for a Nokia 5800, hopefully that can make me happy again. To all future Ominia buyers, beware, and make sure that your wi-fi works before your warranty is up!
Dave, 18 Dec 2009I am unable to edit or create new PowerPoint docs from my fone using the pocket office install... moreHi, if you read the manual you would have noticed where it is explained that you can not create or edit with powerpoint on the Omnia. This is only possible with Word and Excel; but you can view powerpoint documents.
I hope this helps.
I am unable to edit or create new PowerPoint docs from my fone using the pocket office installed or even after installing office beta 10 for mobile yet I can edit and create excel & word docs, any ideas?
i just got the omnia n i narly broke it lol.but its a gud phone
I have owned this phone now for 6 months and am completely disgusted and dissatisfied with this phone. I am on the verizon network.
The features of the phone its self are very nice, however the windows operating system severely limit the phones otherwise outstanding capabilities. Lets get one thing straight, this phone is not the phone it is advertised to be. It it no where close.
I have had to continually do hard resets on average of twice a month, the phone completely freezes multiple times a day, it is slow, laggy, has incredibly horrible battery life, and has no where near the amount of RAM, ROM, or storage space as advertised by the manufacturer.
The music player is decent, however the operating interface makes me think a drunken 5 year designed the user interface. The same goes to the radio player, which cannot operate without a headset being in place. In my opinion that kind of negates the whole purpose of having a radio on a smartphone. If I wanted to have to wear a headset while listening to the radio, wouldn't I just use a MP3 player or small pocket radio?
The camera and video camera portion of this phone are nice, but again it seems haphazardly designed and thrown together as a second thought. The 5.0MP is nice to have compared to a lot of other lesser MP camera's. However the camera can only be turned on from one position, it takes way too long to turn on, and once it does turn on taking pictures with it is cumbersome and annoying. Each time I take a photo, there is a nice little 5 step process you have to go through in order to take another picture again. Very annoying and infuriating when trying to take pictures on the go, or when events are happening and its nice to be able to just point, shoot, and capture.
Internet web browsing is this phones strongpoint. It comes with both microsofts internet explorer and the opera browswer. Both have their strong suites and features, however ive grown to realize that anything microsoft produces is crap, unreliable, buggy, and crashes often. Quite like this phone its self!! Imagine that!
Overall, Id rate this phone a solid 10 out of 10 as a paperweight. As a smartphone, PDA, whatever you want to call it however I can only give it an amazing 4 out 10. I'll never own another windows based phone ever again.
Excellent smartphone, executes mostly everything you need in a working/busy world, you are always connected, sending/receiving mails, viewing slides, editing, it is the best omnia ever constructed. Only one bug for me is zat the stylus/pen should have been integrated in the phone.

To All Omnia users,i'll just give you two advices :
1) Your Problems over omnia actually have a very simple answer : Omnia is smartphone,so you need to be "SMART" to be able to see the real capabilities of it,so if you're not smart enough,or worse you don't want to be smart,FORGET THIS PHONE,it'll only make your days miserable.
2)What Jin said about changing to a new phone is true,he means it and once again it's true.
Good luck with your omnias

I highly recommend using Samsung KIES on your omnia. That gives you the chance to access everything on your phone by computer.
NGP , 13 Dec 2009guys im having a problem.. i cant browse web through pc via my phone... i set it according t... moreI know it sounds dumb but I firstly have to ask if you have an internet data service on your phone. You can test that by simply seing if you can browse the internet on your phone. If you can, then by simply following the manual you should succed. I personally never browsed through mobile modem because I have a 50mbit fiberlink cable at home and a HSDPA portable modem 7.2mbit internet connection when walking around.
bestman2179, 13 Dec 2009you are most welcome, now can u help me? i lost my racing game. dont really know how it happen... morebestman > check your email.
Samuel > in order to install that specific software you need to get the cab files on your phone. The cab files are the software installers for WinMo phones. So, get on the forums out there, like MoDacO and many more, download the software as a cab file, transfer it through cable, bluetooth or whatever you like and simply install it by double tappind on the file in Windows Explorer on the phone. When required, select MyStorage or StorageCard as install location. That's it.
