Samsung Omnia i910
GPS not working.
Verizon sucks because they try to take advantage of us, but there are people smarter than that and we will work together. I got my omnia today. It is a good phone. Unlike the HTC Pro that Verizon Raped.
I recall on my vzw trea a few years ago there was a regedit that exposed the GPS interface, I didn't have much need for it then but it would come in handy now.
Any advice please let me know...
also the howardforums link above seems to dead end....
No specific reference to an Omnia i910. Article displays a photo of and provides link to the i900.
But, to good for our expectations, the article does say "Verizon" which provides the i910.
I'll believe it when I see it!
Now, all that is needed is for Vzw to remove the GPS block.
I'm hoping that will be soon!

Using the steps outlined at: http://theidoctor.org/omnia.html
I updated my rom...
After turning on the gps and then starting google maps, you simply have to wait a few minutes for the first GPS lock...
My post in error, previously may have been because I was trying to connect from the basement of my apartment building while doing laundry, tooo much concrete, go outside and it'll work much faster / better.
Working fine with my unit.
I do find it takes a few minutes for the initial Sat lock but after that, no problems. Works in my home; outside better. I see as many as 7 Sat locks (mostly 5 Sats) which was a surprise.
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.
Main Menu>Settings>All Settings>System>Motion Sensor>Etiquette Tab...place a check mark to enable.
To me, the Blue Highlight indicates this is the latest incoming reply to which I have NOT replied to. If I select Reply and do so, the Blue Highlight is no longer present.
In addition, I am not sure but it seems that I may have to open the Text Msg twice (without replying) in order to eliminate the indication of an unread message. Not sure if this is "Twice" or just "Once".
Again, all of this is not clear to me and I will watch and see what the pattern is for Text Msging.
Maybe some others have noted a change to operations after updating.
Go to newly received text msg and open it. That msg is highlighted Blue. Close without replying and the  indicator is gone. Reopen same msg and Blue Highlight is gone.
That is what I found. I will continue to watch the pattern.
I have no idea what it was before the update.
Lets say when you receive a new text, you go in to read it and then you reply to that text and stay in that conversation. When they send another text to you (you still being in the same 'conversation'), you are still technically seeing the first new text. So if you and this other person are texting away and for example they send you a total of 10 more text messages, and you never closed out of that conversation after having opened the first new text...then you will still have 10 new text meesages. You would have to go in and back out of the same conversation 10x before it shows no more new messages.
At least that's what I got from it.
