Omnia Review after long ownership

by joey301    Apr 9, 2009, 8:41 AM

I am not in love with this phone. I have found the need for a special hookup for my ear phones to be a pain in the butt. I may as well not have the radio.

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 several times, and the list it lets me choose from is limited, even after I add my own ring tones. I may get it to work for awhile, but then it somehow reverts to one of the stock tones. In addition, the ringer is not loud enough.

The browser is Ok. The network is not available too often though. It will go through its #777, then not be able to connect. This happens to me about 1/4 of the time and I am in a good area. The other issue that keeps coming up is that I can not follow hyperlinks from within an email message and there is no way to cut and paste them.

I think all in all, my two biggest gripes are the dialer/phone, and the need for an ear plug adapter.

After less than a year, i am ready for an upgrade.

Joey
