Do you want to sell or trade your Samsung Omnia?
Yes? Good, you’re at the right place.
But first, I need you to determine if you want to trade your phone for a better version, or if you want to sell it for cash?
After you decide, we’ll walk you through the steps to cash in or trade up.
In the meantime, let’s review your phone.
The year is 2008. And thanks to Apple, smartphones have now caughten steam. It’ll still be a couple more years until the first generations of Samsung Galaxy to be released. Meanwhile, Samsung carved their way into the market share by introducing the Samsung Omnia just a year after the release of the iPhone.
Simple and elegant comes to mind when you witness the slim, lightweight candy bar design of the Samsung Omnia. It’s beauty is backed with a solid construction. Your eyes are quickly drawn to the 3.2-inch TFT display. It has 240 x 400 pixel resolution. Although it doesn’t meet HD standards, the colors are still decently rich and vibrant.
The Samsung Omnia is a touch phone. Therefore, the keypad and the keyboard are digital. When you touch the keys are apps on the display, it has a subtle vibration thanks to the Haptic feedback. Also, A built-in accelerometer automatically rotates the phone from portrait to landscape mode when turned 90-degrees. Instead of consistently manually switching from sound to silent mode, Etiquette mode automatically does it for you. All you have to do is place the display face down.
Although you can’t add applications to the TouchWiz UI, you can drag and drop preload widgets to the home screen. To the left of the display, there’s an expandable tray with applications such as media player, FM radio, games, calendar, clocks, notepad, and more. Sometimes the scrolling bar has trouble registering your touch. Therefore, you can use the directional pad as a virtual mouse.
Below the display are talk and end call keys. Plus, a four-way directional pad. As I stated earlier, the directional pad doubles as a virtual mouse. Go to Settings > System > Finger Mouse to enable the virtual mouse.
To the right of the phone, house a dedicated main menu and a camera key as well as the volume rocker. The headphone/power connector port is to the left. Unfortunately, the port is proprietary. So there’s no 3.5 mm jack. But there is an adaptor that comes included in the box. The microSD slot is located behind the battery. And there’s no built-in stylus. It attaches to a lanyard—as if you were going to be crawling through the WW2 trenches in Normandy.
I have to say: Samsung hooks you up when you purchase the Omnia. It includes two power adapters, a USB cable, a wired headset with extra eartips, a 3.5 mm headphone adapter, and a stylus.
Also, the Omnia is running Windows Mobile 6.1. It has all the bells and whistles you’ll expect from this operating system. Microsoft Office Mobile Suite, Microsoft Direct Push Technology, and Exchange Server are all included. Email services such as POP3 and IMAP are also included. So you can either download emails straight to your computer or access an email server with an internet connection. Other goodies include, calculator, PDF reader, smart converter, task list and switcher, task manager, and more.
There’s a few options when it comes to web browsing. You can launch the internet using Internet Explorer Mobile, Opera Mobile Web, or Google Launcher. Although Google Launcher is discontented, it’s still compatible with the Samsung Omnia. Plus, it offers quick and easy access to search, Gmail, and Google Maps.
When internet browsing on network data, the Omina is a little sluggish at times. It isn’t terribly noticeable, but it’s still noticeable. However, the Omina turns into a different beast when connected to Wi-Fi. You’ll notice the speed increase instantly.
The Samsung Omnia has an impressive 5 MP camera. There’s three quality settings, six size options, and fifteen shooting modes. It’s fully equipped with video recording, digital zoom, flash, auto focus, and face detection. The photos are crisp and clear. And the colors are rich, not richie rich, but still rich. You can Geotag your photos and sort them using Digital frame. It displays time and state while scrolling through pictures.
Call quality, video playback, and audio all performed well. None of them will exceed your expectations. But you won’t be disappointed either. However, the 1440 mAh li-ion battery is what stood out. It has talk time rated up to 10 hours and standby up to 18 days.
Now that we got the review out of the way, let’s discuss your selling options.
There’s two available deals for your Samsung Omnia. You can choose to:

If you want cash return, this option is for you.
Preparing to sell your Samsung Omnia is pretty easy. Just follow these steps:

Done! That’s it.

When you finish completing the steps, trading your phone will be a cinch.
That pretty much wraps everything up.
