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.

Took the Omnia back yesterday. I was about over the learning curve issues with WinMo, but had other problems that led to my decision.

In 4 weeks I think I uninstalled/reinstalled about 12 times. Yesterday it never would work again. I was also having problems with text messages. I discovered that many text messages I sent were never received. As I am a long time VZW user, and have never had this problem before it could only be attributed to a phone issue - and yes, I did spend considerable time w/tech support on that.
