    I changed these values but nothing changed. I have Samsung Sgh-i900.
    Will changing touch sensor screen solve the problem?
    If yes then of which type or brand?

    i take back my previous comment! well, actually it worked at first but then, after a while my phone lagged, which forced me to remove the battery. after i switched on my phone.. viola! everything is RUINED! the screen alignment is totally messed up. I REGRET doing this and would NEVER RECOMMEND this to anyone else. I think the only remedy i can do with this is to MASTER RESET it but then however, i will loose all my contacts and calendar information, and other files which i didn’t have backed up way before since i cannot possible press anything on the screen that works. TWO THUMBS DOWN!!!

    As always, my friends at XDA developers (a free forum, but you need to register to download stuff) have the answer to this FRUSTRATING problem. I can’t believe Samsung would make something that has such an elementary problem!

    Anyway, here’s the link:

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=355010

    It involves downloading a program called “Remote Screen Alignment”…yeah, I was doubtful at firs, too…but man, it worked like magic! I had done a hard reset on my phone, and then couldn’t get past the alignment screen. So, according to the instructions on the site, I connected my phone to the PC…ActiveSync started up (I thought it wouldn’t, but it did)…I had already installed the Remote Screen Alignment program on my PC, so I opened it up…it recognized my phone, and gave me a few options for alignment…I selected “Skip Alignment”…it asked me if I was sure, I said yes…and then my phone automatically rebooted and sailed past the alignment screen!

    Hope it works for everyone!

    Replace Omnia with iphone?
    Are you retard? Well, that
    was a rhetorical question.
    Omnia simply RULEZ, but I
    understand that it has too
    much power for some people
    to handle…

    Hi there! Need help with my new Omnia 2!!

    Apparently the screen doesn’t rotate to landscape when i turn it around. This problem applies to Messaging and all others. But it works well for photos.

    Please help!

    @anne, to undo, just go to the Remove Program setting and uninstall the Improve Omnia Touchscreen.

    @MRWANGKAI
    Can you point me to the seller you ordered the touch screen from? And how much did it cost?
    Thanks.

    I have the same problem with the touch screen after i cracked the lcd screen underneath and had it replaced.Ive just ordered a new touch screen off ebay as I think i may have “creased” the touch screen even though there is no visible damage.As they sell replacement touch screens on ebay I assume that this is a common problem.Will let you know if it fixes the problem.

    @Naven, try going to Settings then System tab and finally under the “general tab” choose “Align Screen”. But it does sound like you are having trouble even using the touchscreen. If the above instruction doesn’t work, you may have to hard-reset your Omnia. Do let us know if you’re resort to doing that.

    Hi, I tried the code and my Omnia touch screen sensitivity is a lot improved. thanks for this tip.

    It is such a dissapointment this Omnia. Everything was all right, until the screen alignment got screwed up.
    It is supposed that for 800 uss dollars it shouldn’t happend. Honestly, I am trying to repair it and sell it asap. I will go for a more stable phone like Iphone or Blackberry.

    Works like a charm. What this does is this: You all remember the 5 crosses asked when you first start your phone, right? Well, let’s assume those 5 crosses have each some precise coordinates in X and Y. Now, by pressing with your fingers or even with your stylus, you might not hit those exact “coordonates”. All this does is making the phone think you the hit the 5 crosses right in the middle, and that pretty much increases senzitivity. As I said, works great.

    @pcomnia, may I know which Omnia version you’re using so we can look into the issue. Sorry about the inconvenience.

  19. pcomnia June 21, 2009 at 11:09 am -

    that code F**** my omnia !!!! cant touch the screen at all thanks!@

    doesn’t really do anything. all calibrations should be done on a per phone basis.
