Updates and Fixes
*PointUI Home 2, or Androkidd (Better user interface, although I couldn't get Androkidd to work)
*S2U2 (better Unlocking)
*Resco Keyboard or Swype Keyboard (Much better Keyboard) ***YOU WILL HAVE TO GOOGLE SEARCH SWYPE KEYBOARD FOR OMNIA I910 as it can no longer be discussed as per SWYPE INC.
*Use the optical mouse (Eliminates need for Stylus)
*Opera Mobile 9 with Turboboost, (Much faster Browsing
*Flash to Blazing Wolf's Windows Mobile 6.5 Rom (More games, unlocked GPS which can be shut off, runs faster) ***FLASH AT YOUR OWN RISK***...

I tried taking out the numbers from my emeregency contact but i still got the same problem.
Turn off Scroll clicking sound
Calendar synching = Phone Overheating?? ! ! ?
did a little digging, and it's active synch, if I turn off the calendar for synchronization with exchange I'm good for 24 to 30 hours, like normal, and phone doesn't get hot.
Turn the calendar back on, and it starts to grind through, until I have to charge it, or battery shuts it down...
What the heck, was this past weekend when DST used to change?
Is there a limit to how many appts will carry over to the phone? I'm only copying the past 2 weeks, and the future...
Can I limit how far into the future I synch?
Downloading HELP!!!! Thanks in advance!
Questions about XT9 and others
Also, is there any way to truly disable the auto-capitalize first letter of each sentence ... even when this option is chosen, the first letter is always capitalized (this seems to be true of all PDAs and Smartphones that I've used). Also, are there any known issues with wraparound not working?
Thanks for any assistance, I've exhausted all other resources and appreciate any help.
GPS not working.
Verizon sucks because they try to take advantage of us, b...
Now, all that is needed is for Vzw to remove the GPS block.
I'm hoping that will be soon!
After update i can't seem to find the etiquette feature to enable it. was this feature removed by the update ? thanks for any imput .
No, update did NOT remove. Yes, the Etiquette feature still there after update.
Is my omnia a defect?
Here are some lists. Please let me know if there is something wrong with my phone.
When on the phone for a while, sometimes the phone dials out #min middle of a call with someone. ??? When using the phone, the screen is always blocked and goes blank. I don't know how the hell it calls out #min to verizon time to time.
My device gets very laggy. I have to turn off and on to recover it. Sometime, on/off button does not even respond. I have to literally pull out the battery to reset.
Ok. Another major error I have is when I set my phone on v...
Omnia Review after long ownership
Using 3rd party applications has for the most part proven to be not very useful, since I have to be careful that they are compatible with the widgets. It just seems the WM 6.1 is not attracting much attention for cool applications these days.
The phone dialer is awful. Finding a contact takes too many steps and the list from within the phone itself has way too small a font and its too easy to dial a number instead of just look at your record for that person. I can not dial with one hand on this phone unless its a speed dial
The personalized ringer has never worked. I have set it ...
First had a firmware problem ... second was fried by a defective original home charger; This one seems better but still has IMHO very poor battery life ... even with BT & WiFi turned off and limited use...
Get Skype on your phone
I've been trying to install it from my sd card but get an error message that it is not a valid pocket pc application and quits the install.
I was wanting to use Skype via wifi on the Omnia when I go to Europe next month
Is there any forums fro the omnia?
And I have not tried to install the leaked OS, but I know that many have on the forum. If you do a search at the site, you can find information o...
I910 Case with Stylus Holder
Searching the web for a case that had a place to store the stylus turned up only one, which I found here:
http://www.carrymobile.com/scripts/main/viewitem-SSI ... »
There are several other styles available, but I chose this one. It arrived today, and I like it. Quality seems good, and now I can finally keep the stylus with the phone, and that's important to me, since there are situations where a finger touch just do a very good job.
I threw together a couple of images of it with my phone in it. Sorry for the poor lighting, but they serve to illustrate.
What are your concerns or feelings for having to open the case flap in order to gain access to the camera lens? Do you find that to be an issue? I wish they had provided access without the need to open the case flap...
Texting autfill? Can i turn that feature off????
Compose a message using the Samsung Keyboard.
On the keyboard, select xt9 to AutoFill or select abc to NOT autofill. xt9/abc located near bottom left of Sumsung Keyboard.
back up assistant?
Windows Mobile OS
I am looking for the non-branded Windows mobile 6.1 OS. I have no idea if one is even available, but if so does anyone know where I can find one? I'm just looking for the windows mobile 6.1 without all the samsung and verizon crap bundled. I would prefer to get it from either microsoft or samsung if possible. I'm still not 100% comfortable putting someone elses 'cooked' rom on it.
Thanks in advance for any help.
