Still bummed about the data service requirement

I knew Verizon would have to do something to make sure we couldn't use the WiFi feature for free... so now it's an additional $360 per year if you want this phone... ($30/month over your call plan).

Are there any thin phones that don't require it aside from the LG Chocolate touch?

Has anyone used Windows Connect home?

I know you are suppose to be able to play media files on your Omnia II and connect them to your home network to play on a TV via xbox 360. Does anyone know how???

I've tried reading about it online but could not find much information.

Omnia II enlarging webpage options?

Is there a way to incrementally enlarge a web page? I double tapped a small font text page to have it enlarge. It ended being a size so big that it was too big and would take too long to scroll around to see the whole page. I played with a Moto Droid on the same web page and a + or - icon comes up so you can increase the size to fit your needs.

Views after 2 weeks

Not knowing I wouldn't be able to edit or submit a 2nd one, I submitted a review before I bought this phone. I've now had it 2 weeks. I might bump my 3.5 rating to 3.75, 4.0 at most. This is a pretty good phone. Much better call quality than the last 2 Palm devices I've had. BT seems to work well w/my 2 yr old Plantronics. Speaker phone is good.
Screen is good for viewing. Touch screen way behind Iphone level - I'm guessing this is mostly b/c of WinMo? Camera laggy. Have to play w/it a lot to find optimal range, zoom etc to get good pictures. Ambient light a big problem. Frustrated with the minimal number of apps or widgets available. MS apps are way overpriced for the most part.
Contact search is really bad. On-screen keyboa...

It's weird only 1 review after a few days

I figured there would be a dozen 5.0 ratings after all the chatter from the Omnia 2 fanboys over the last few months. And the 1 review is not from a owner just a tire kicker.

Your Omnia II has been shipped!

Woohoo! anticipation is making me wait. I also just installed the SPB Mobile Shell on my Omnia I and it's almost as if I have a new phone. Now if I could just add the OLED, 3.5 jack, 800mhz CPU, and the integrated stylus, to name a few, I'd be able to get at least another year out of this phone. It's not that I have any real complaints about it either. I guess that darn gotta have it bug has bitten me again. I'm still curious as to wether the Omnia II has the flashlight feature as the Omnia I does. Anyone know for sure?

Can't believe they finally released it

Has anyone seen it yet? Was it worth the wait?

I tried the 1st one but the battery life was just not good enough.
Curious to see how this one will compare to the droid phones and how well they fixed the battery...

Boy is this one getting lost in the wash

If this thing had come out as late as 3 months ago this forum would be 10 pages long and there would be 50 reviews. Verizon didn't miss out on much since it turns out the Droid is a success, but Samsung lost out big time by this thing not coming out sooner when people were actually excited about it.

Now I'm really torn between the

HTC Eris and the Samsung Omnia II to replace my aging Palm 650. I like the looks of both phones and will be using it for work e-mails and personal e-mails.

Since I won't be able to use my Palm desktop software which I have used for almost 10 years, I'm now wondering which would provide the best replacement.
