I have a samsung i910 and I'm getting a Motorola droid and will need to transfer all my phone numbers. What is the easiest way to complete that task.
- Set your Omnia to sync with your Google contacts. If you use your calendar, you should be able to sync that data too. No need to mess with gmail at this point.
- After your first sync, open your favorite browser on your computer and go to http://google.com/contacts. Take a minute and make sure that your contacts look the way you want them. You will probably have some duplicate contacts that you will want to merge and some anomalies that you'll want to remove.
- Activate your Droid. You'll be prompted to put in your Google account information and your calendar and contacts will all be there!
If you don't have a Google account and don't want one, then you'll need to find another way. The Verizon store would probably be your best option. However, I would recommend just getting a Google account. They are free and it is what the phone is primarily made to work with. (I know there are other options, but I imagine Google spends the most time testing and optimizing their own service :-) If you have another service you are going to use instead, you can sync to both or just turn off the Google sync once all your contacts are loaded.
Good luck and have fun. You're going from a Pinto to a Ferrari. There are some things I still miss from my Omnia, but as a package it doesn't hold a candle to my Motorola Droid.
DK, great post. I transitioned from the I910 (great phone really), to the Droid in November 2009. I transitioned my contacts and calendar from Outlook to Gmail on my PC then when I activated the Droid I set up the GMAIL account to sync with the phone and the contacts populated and calendar populated and have sync'd ever since. If you do not want to set up the GMAIL account you would likely need to go to a Verizon store to transition your data from one device to the next, I haven't heard of any other way.

[quote]The I910 was good for what it was. I would have loved to see the omnia 2 with android. The phone would probably have been a massive hit.
I made the exact same switch a couple days ago. I HATED the Omnia.
Moto Droid > Omnia
I had a nice signature, but the mean ate it.
Form factor was great, but the combination of the resistive touch screen and WinMo killed it for me. I had 4 phones crap out on me before I went to the Storm -- and the Storm was an improvement....
OP, there should be a way to export your contacts, which can be imported again with the Droid. Despite the disparaging remarks, having Verizon do it is always a good choice, and they always get it right for me.
