When Avtivating

Do you have to buy the Nationwide Email Plan (30 Dollars a Month), to activate this phone? Because I know verizon does that with all the Blackberries.

Activation Fee?

How much is the activation fee? Can that be talked out of?

Storm, IPhone 3G or Omnia, that is the question.......

Ok People, I played with an IPhone 3G at the ATT store in New Brunswick, NJ for about an hour. I must say that I was VERY impressed. The internet browser is second to none! The call quality was crystal clear. I do understand that I was in the store and not out on the dock at the summer home in Pt. Pleasant. The camera doesn't have a flash, but that is minor. The touch screen is great.

The Storm was good, but not great. The browser is good, but not quite like IPhone. The video screen was awesome to say the least. It looks like HD on a phone. I didn't care for the push typing though. I like the touch of the IPhone.

I will test the Omnia, before making a final decision.

Right now, the IPhone is in the lead. I would hate to leave VZW ...

How is the Reception?

I already tried the bb storm and it lost a few calls. I returned it and am back to my pearl and it is pretty good. Any one have issues with reception yet?

I am now looking for a windows mobile phone so that I can download skyfire that will allow me to have flash. Thanks for any info!

Mac Sync

I am aware the Omnia possesses PC sync, but does anyone anticipate troubles syncing with Mac? Thanks.

samsung omnia i900

When I saw for the first time this phone on gsmarena.com I just fell in love with it. I need it to upgrade my T-mobile phone, but I didn't like the G1 Crying or Very sad , I got used to winmo platform!
I got the unlocked GSM version of Omnia from e-bay, knowing that I wouldn't be able to use the T-mobile's 3G, just the EDGE/GPRS.
When I got it, I connected it to T-mobile just fine, but I cannot use the internet, the connection settings keeps me on the asian's networks. Any help??????????? Thanx Smile

Is this the U.S. version of the Samsung Haptic? this phone has been the rant and rave in Korea for the past few months. People are paying upwards of $600+ to get this phone over there!

i wonder how it will do here. i just ordered it for overnight shipping...

Omnia in Circuit City stores starting today!!!

Just came from Circuit City store on Rockville Pike in MD. They just put it on display this morning. Really nice. I am considering exchanging my Storm for it since my storm is nothing but bugs and I just came from a prior Win Mobile phone that I loved (Sammy i760).

The keyboard seems so much more responsive that the Storm,. I can type much faster on the omnia and with less mistakes than the storm.

Not sure if the corporate Verizon stores have the Omnia on display yet, but CC does. THey have it for $199

Proprietary

why did they do all of the proprietary wiring? I was so happy about the FM radio but I don't want the special wires needed for this phone. I like everything else about it. It seems that even phones are governed by Lord Murphy.

is this a good choice?

contract is up with verizon. i was looking for a new phone. this looks like it might fit the bill. any advice would be appreciated. looking for something probably no bigger than this one, qwerty keyboard, and wi-fi are some main features i'm looking for. i don't want to have to get a data plan, but would like to be able to pick-up emails at wi-fi locations (is this even possible?) i'm old. any suggestions? thanks

Windows Mobile?

Ok. Sorry ahead of time If this sounds lame. I use mac at home. I like verizon better than AT&T thats why?
SO, Does windows mobile get in the way of anything if I really do not need it. I like this phone for the camera, texting, casual checking of the web or email and most of all calls.. So, can sync contacts with a mac? Prob not I know. Thanks guys.

Another dumb question...Haptic feedback?

I know the GSM version does have haptic feedback, but I have watched a couple reviews of the CDMA version that mention the lack of haptic feedback. Do they just have to settings screwed up or is it missing on the American version? One such review is from Mobileburn.

Screen Quesiton

Rich,

How is the screen on the Omnia? I've heard people raving about the Touch Pro and how vibrant the screen is. I know that the screens are not the same, but would you consider the Omnia's screen poor in comparison to other phones?

Thanks!

why only a half-duplex speaker phone?

I use the speaker almost 90% of the time...A half duplex doesn't sound useful...

This or the BB Storm?

Ok people, I was just about to go out and order the storm, even though there are bugs to work out. Now I am thinking of waiting for this. Thoughts?
