    This phone should've been released here. Titan aside, it is the best WP I've played with yet.

    Great heft, feels iPhone-esque in its weight, home button kicks ***, feels great in the hand, button turns it on, design is very good.

    Im now convinced that premium build on a Nokia could sway the tide more. Very high quality device. Will slip the s card in for a few days and give it a go.

    I love it, but unfortunately, the microsim adapter broke, and now I need to order another one. Do you have any suggestions?

    Huuh! Microsim? Where does that come from? MY Omnia 7 does not have a microsim. Something I have missed. I know that Nokia Lumia 800 has one, but Samsung Omnia 7?
    I am confused.

    TheWeeBear, have you replaced your Samsung Omnia 7 or do you have several handsets?

    TheWeeBear, are these adapters to be used with a microsim in a phone that does not have microsims natively (i.e. Omnia 7) or is the purpose to shape an "ordinary" sim card to a microsim?

    It was baseballbert who was looking for one perpear, they just let you use a microsim as a normal sized simcard. I am now the proud owner of a Titan perbear. :D

    So what happened to your old Omnia 7? I am getting fonder of mine so I don't know what to do with the Nokia that I bought. Switch and give the old one away or give the new one away and keep the old? well, a first world problem.

    Half of Scotland was begging me for it, so I accepted the first offer I couldn't refuse perpear. :D

    Do you prefer it to the Nokia ? Decisions Decisions. ;)

    I would have thought you would have preferred a newer generation phone but I can understand wanting to keep the Omnia, it's a fantastic phone, I was going to keep mine as I've never had any problems at all with it.

    I just have my Titan now, but i'm delighted with it, so quite happy. :)

    Thetes an 800 on ebay around 500. Thinking about it. iOS is good, and iPhone is great hardware but all of the subtleties of wp I miss. Although I think I like the smaller phone better.


    Typing, contact sync, office and sky drive Zune too. Som card adapter should be here soon so I can use the 7.

    I bought a SIM cutter off Ebay. I found it's best to start with a normal size SIM and cut it, then use the leftover piece as a holder when it's in a normal SIM slot. Fits tighter and better than the adapters.

    The SIM card cutters on Ebay are less than $5 US

    Sorry Baseballbert, I am not planning on departing with the Nokia. It is a matter of someone else in the family will receive it as a Christmas present.
    To my shame I must confess Theweebear, that I have not unpacked it yet, not more than glancing at it and check that everything is there. But that was how it was with my Omnia. I just let it rest and if I not had been found out by my partner that I indeed had a smartphone I would probably had not begun to use it daily as I am very anti-3. But I still have to pay the monthly fee for another year and then switch simcards to Swedish Tele2. By the way is it safe to configure another carrier's messages settings. Will both of my carriers settings be stored or do I have to reset every time i change the simcard. The reason for wanting to change simcards is to check whether one carrier is better than the other and how much I call for every month so I am prepared for arguments whether to keep with a pre paid monthly sum or as I go.

    Hi perbear, you will need to use the network settings app each time you use another carrier.

    Quite simple to do, although its a bit of a pain if you swap SIMS a lot.

    This phone is pretty awesome, still haven't actually used it as a phone just media player, but it has a drawback. Its slicker'n pigeon poop.

    It has slipped out of my hand several times. I've got clear film full body skin coming (which are pretty tacky) and a black silicon case so that should make it easier to grip.

    Looking forward to actually using it as a phone.

    I hear you there. Been using an iPhone for about two weeks, and while I love having a good Facebook app (do a ton of social network stuff for my business and I need the groups fumctuonality) and ESPN on screen notifications, that's it. I really miss having WP as a phone to use. Hopefully sum adapter will be here manana.

    Using ios again has made me appreciate WP that much more.
