Once I thought of throwing this phone .Now I started appreciating this because of its internet connection speed in GPRS/EDGE on BSNL connection. Tne WIFI is superb. I have opera mini ,opera java based ,Bolt ,Fire and Internet explorer.
I overcome the power problem with extended battery.This helped me in over heating because of space for ventilation .
I regularly use it for my inventory statement and accounts without any difficulties. I purchased a better Scratch guard and using old used ball point pen as stylius.Asus supplied a dirty cheap stylus for such a good unit. The usb connection for sound system is a bad proposition.There are plenty pin based units are availabe as altenative. Downloading is quiet fast.

Hi;
I have bought the phone and gave it back in one day because it heating during the talk. In one or two minutes it starts to heat and it is not a good think to carry a hot machine near your head. I dont know why and I have not investigated the problem. I only gave it back.

Before this you please check your sim card on another mobile phone and confirm whether it is in order.
I had similar problems and now it is ok.

Does anyone knows how to increase the volume through
the ear speakers and bluetooth. I find the volume a tad too soft even at maximum level. While connected to a handsfree, the rocker on the pda does not seemed to increase the volume. Any tweaks and links appreciated.

This is my first time owning an Asus windows mobile phone. Have been using products from HTC for the past couple of years. The big difference I've noticed comparing to HTC devices is the build quality of this phone is so solid. Also there is no chance of keys fading because the keys are made of laminated plastic. The outer shell also has a rubbery feel so it snugs firmly when you hold it.

I think XCPUScalar is rom dependent. It may work in some roms or not. Same with Pocket Hack master.

When I reverted to using stock rom, I've noticed that this device is battery hungry. From 100% to 80% in just 2 hours. Regardless if you still set the CPU mode to Power saving mode. If you set it to turbo mode, 20% decrease in just an hour, maybe more.

Anyways, went back to asus p552w stock rom. Then tried some minor tweaks using SKTOOLS. I tried experimenting with the results for days now and here's what I did. Go to Category then system tweaks then Optimize then on the screen click Action, then choose Performance, then Optimize. This will prompt you to restart your device for the changes to take effect. Then I set CPU mode to automatic.

I fully charged my phone to 100% before going to bed. Took note of the time, it was 10:42 pm. Woke up at 8:10 am. My battery meter reads 96%. I think that isn't bad at all. I'm sure anybody can do this. No risk in doing it. SKTools is very safe to use. One more thing, stay away from Pocket Mechanic. If you're a novice pocket pc user, this software can get you into a lot of trouble especially if you're trying to free up some storage space and do some registry cleaning.

this also applies to ASUS P565. both have Marvell processors. Hope this helps.

got this phone as a gift from my girlfriend. this is the best phone i've ever had. spent hours downloading software. some of which i never thought existed... like a decibel meter, wikipedia (i mean whole wikipedia. 2005 edition that is), call recorder, gps tracker, all in one movie player (coreplayer), palm emulator(style tap), talking dictionary, internet radio, usb drivers ( i can connect any memory card/flash drive and transfer files to and out of my device... now how cool is that. i don't need to turn on my pc just to transfer files on my phone.. makes me love my asus p552w more.
