i heard AT&T is coming out with this as i907!!!

I hope so. Do you have more info on when they will do it?

Well the i907 has already been FCC approved, so my guess is probably soon, maybe even a little after it's Eurasia release. Then again, AT&T is slow to release things... even Canada's Rogers is faster than it. Maybe Canada will once again get this first.

Thanks! It's just I have been trying to find a phone with these kind of feauters for a long time, there are some phones that have 5 meg. pixel cameras, have big displays, Wi-Fi, 3G, yet, non have it with U.S. 3G bands. So this looks like a perfect combination for me. Thanks again.

Not much is known about OMNIA coming to America other than VerizonWireless having OMNIA on their rebate forms. It's true, search for OMNIA CDMA on this site and find out more.

AT&T? I never heard about AT&T having OMNIA but it sounds interesting. I heard about VerizonWireless having OMNIA on their rebate form. It's already announced that OMNIA CDMA will come out on November 2008 (VerizonWireless).

I DO hope this phone comes to use.... I read on PhoneScoop that might come with AT&T ....****cries****.... but... it will kill the iPhone.... so... does it make sense? AT7T charges a lot.... even to open your phone... BUt this phone is sweeeeet..... 16GB plus SD CARD.... SOMEONE FINALLY HEARD WHAT THE PEOPLE WANTS!!!

It actually does make sense in why AT&T would care it. Why not have 2 popular phones in one company? Doesnt that deliever more business?

You are all forgetting, its still a Windows Mobile 6.x device. MS needs to push out Windows Mobile 7 (or whatever they are calling the next "real" release) Windows Mobile 6.1 are still paged with memory management issues.....

What about Verizon carrying it, anyone hear anything

It is a GSM phone so it won't becoming to Verizon, unless Samsung makes a CDMA version. What's up with so many people wanting GSM phones on CDMA networks -_-

I had AT&T but got absolutely no bars in my house so I had to move to Verizon which has the worst selection of phones. I bought an unlocked Samsung SCH-i830 because of it.

Awersome looking phone! Too bad it's on the slow AT&T network.

ATT has the fastest 3G network in the US and the best voice coverage in the world. I don't remember my Verizon friends going to the UK and using their sh*tty a*s lg chocolate phones.

14. vained unregistered

i really now when this is gonna be release in the philippines since they said its gona be released first in asia..and also the price for it???

Why would samsung wanna come out on AT&T? If it was on AT&T if people want an Iphone they can get an Iphone. It would be much better to come out with another US carrier for people that want an Iphone but are not willing to switch networks.

19. At&T employee unregistered

funny thing is Verizon and Sprint/Nextel will be moving to the 4G netowrk as they know there is no real room to grow on the CDMA networks. in order for this phone to be used to it's full capacity it willl have have to be released for AT&T it is the only carrier stateside with 3G, T-Mobile sure ain't got it. Plus for all you idiots talking about how slow AT&T is look at the specs it says that it is 7.2 HSDPA which is a hell of a lot faster then any other carrier stateside and AT&T is already working on trying to get the network up to that standard. I can't wait for thsi phone personally it will be a great alternative to the Iphone, And Sammy is awesome. Hopefully it will hit the stores soon.

i had at&t and used to work forf them and they charged me for roaming and some crazy ass other fees that i never used so i droppd them lames and went to verizon. Plus i never got reception in the places with trees or when i drive under a tunnel under at&t. Verizon ALWAYS have reception and never been charge for anything crazy. at&t sucks balls

Well that really tells everyone your opinion on the phone. Or not. I'm not a fan of AT&T where I live and would hope there would be a CDMA version on Verizon but this looks like the twig-and-giggle-berries.

Funny how one person says verizon's selection is the worst and another says they get all the cool phones. I think it should be on all carriers that way you can have the best phone on the carrier that suits you best.
