Everyone must try this out! I put this on my phone and it is awesome. I cant wait til the Pro version is done as i may just purchase it! Even the free version is really nice. Smooth scrolling and very finger friendly!!
I am looking at getting the omnia and never had a smartphone before let alone a windows mobile phone. I was wondering if it is very user friendly and are there alot of applications for this phone. How would you rate this phone? Thank you for the help.
I've had this phone now for a while and I love it, but I have to say I'm a bit annoyed with a few little features. I'm able to set a song as a text message alert. when my phone is not on vibrate, of course it plays the alert nice and clear. But, on my previous verizon phone (LG voyager) if I had an incoming text message and wanted to stop the sound of the alert, i would basically just press any button to stop it. This phone doesn't do that, you have to press the end button everytime and if you're in an "ongoing" conversation with someone through SMS, when u have to press the end button, it goes back to the main screen and you have to re-open your messages to look back at what the person sent. I don't like this. Also, if my volume is on... (continues)
I cannot get my Omnia screen to light up when I get a text or picture message. I have checked the settings and they are set to "flash light for 5 minutes" however the screen stays dark. The vibrate and audio alerts work, however the screen does not light up. Is anyone else having this issue, and were you able to resolve it?
I am trying to stream video (non you-tube) on either Opera or IE and they all want the flash player updated. I have so far downloaded it and clicked on it to install, but nothing happens and I still cannot stream. Anyone else had this problem or fixed it?
I purchased the Samsung Omnia in Dec 08. The phone looks great, has many many features, but sometimes the phone will not send/recieve text messages. I have to turn the phone off and then on again for the text messages to go. Sometimes texts will not get sent for like 3 days. I have spoken to tech support. Apparently there is a known software issue with Samsung. They have no idea when this will be corrected. Anyone have this problem? I'm getting really tired of verizon phones that do not work. I just switched back to my LG Dare. Every single phone I've owned with them I have to exchange. The Omnia was the 3rd different phone model since Dec 08. This phone for me was a huge disappointment and they told me I could exchange it for the Samsung S... (continues)
Has anyone been able to use the voice activated commands for contacts, text messages, etc. The description says that the phone has independent capability. Also, I downloaded the weather bug app. It appeared to install but I cannot see the program in the list but the description on the vrz homepage describes it as an app you can put on your main screen as well as send you alerts. Any Ideas?
when receiving a text message, the phone notifys you who its from and some of the actual text message. my question is, from that alert on the main screen is there an easy way to reply to the text message from that screen or alert box?
My wife just got her Omnia last week. Fantastic phone, BUT we charge our phones when we go to bed. Her Omnia sends out a notification that the phone charge is complete which seems to happen shortly after we go to sleep! Is there a way to turn off this notification?
Whenever I make a call the keypad disappears and I am asked to press an area so the keypad will come back. it won't come back and I want the keypad to stay visible while I'm on a call to get extensions dialed. Soo frustrating. can anyone help?
I am confused about the memory that this phone brings and whether or not it comes with a card. when i access memory from the day screen, i see 8 gig total in "storage card" and in main memory- 88.17 MB total storage, and 97.35MB total in program. Is there a card already in my storage slot, I thought the phone itself had 8 gig internal memory which is probably true although i haven't bothered to open it up yet, anyway what's the story?
when i downloaded a music podcast, i wanted to store it in my storage rather than the phone's main memory. that's where it wound up but i don't see it in my podcast library, i can get the music to play using the quickplayer, but i wanted to separate it in the podcasts folder, did I make an error when storing it?
if I am listening to a media file, or to a podcast, how do I turn off the speaker phone? It is connected to bluetooth (mono), but it reverts back to the speaker phone by itself. When I looked into the manual, the only mention of the speaker phone is in connection to making a call. If bluetooth is on, why is the speaker even coming on?
