Whenever I am using my omnia w with data connection on in 3G mode I am unable to send sms. If I switch data connection off, I can send sms. The problem persists with all service providers. What should I do?

SMS with 3G data on

An update named "Samsung update for Windows Phone" was rolled out yesterday which fixes the problem of sending a text message with 3G connection. Connect your phone to your PC and update via Zune. The problem should be solved. :)

Note that OEM updates will increase the Firmware version (I'm seeing reports of people on KK7 firmware). Firmware updates have a distinct tendency to break various hacks. For example, Windowbreak and other provxml hacks only work on Samsung phones with firmware prior to KK2.

I have the same problem in Sweden.
No update availabe on Zune.
Talked to Samsung, and they have no ETA on the next update...
*Sigh* I really like the phone, but since I send a lot of SMS and use a lot of data connectivity it's just about useless for me in this state...

Didn't get my update

Hey guys, I got here trying to solve the same problem on my phone.

The only thing is that I'm in Costa Rica, and that update isn't available here yet.

I actually installed two updates today, but the current version of the firmware is this:

OS Version: 7.10.8107.79
Firmware revision: 2209.11.11.15
Hardware revision: 23.1.0.8
Radio software: 2209.11.11.4
Radio hardware: 0.0.0.600
Bootloader: 5.11.24.0
SOC: 0.74.2.1

Getting the information with the *#1234# thingy it says:

PDA: i677VIKK5
Phone: i677VIKK4

Do any of you know if there's a way to get this update manually into the phone? Or if there's someone I can contact to get it?

Thanks a lot!

Check the CAB thread on the dev&hacking sub-forum. You can manually push updates to your phone.

That said, K4 can be interop-unlocked, but later firmware versions cannot (currently). You may want to use WindowBreak (if you haven't already) before you update the phone.

Can't belive Samsung is still having this issues, Omnia 7 faced the same problems. I like the designs and screens on Samsung phones, but the fact remain the same, they just can't do anything software related, EVEN if MSFT just made the OS for them. The Galaxy SII release in Sweden suffered the same fate, but being a popular phone it took only 2 weeks or something to get a fix out....Omnia 7 still waits, thou it is selective to carriers so at least gives a fighting chans for Omnia 7. And yes, your phone may seem to work the first 2 months or so, but eventually the Omnia 7 went down if you had the wrong carrier.

I hope this is only a selected few being struck by this, because Samsung shows WP so far, next to nothing in attention.
