I am interested in buying a g500. Does it come with GPS built in or do you need to buy a module for it.

This is a great phone with almost all the functionalities you want. I just have some problems. The reception is really bad. A signal strength is not an issue. I always get full bars but the sound quality of phone (not MP3) is horrible with a lot statics. It is actually worse on the other party than my side. It is not my service provider issue because I have had 3-4 phones with a same provider and I have not had any problem. The other problem is ringtone is not loud enough. This could be fixed with the hands-free earpiece but I can't have hands-free device all the time. I think that this is a great PDA with moderate GPS and with a below average phone. However, I can't say that I don't like this phone.

:( As I said early about the belt holder it happend, result: a cracked touch screen matrix which need to be replaced. At least the LCD is ok, hopefully. Suggesting to check following link if U want more info about G500 and/or other ETEN devices. http://www.eten-users.net

Like most Windows PDA's to add your own sounds, you simply copy the MP3 or WAV files etc to the my documents folder on the PDA using Activesync. Once you do this, they will appear in the list of sounds you can use for messages, ring tones etc. Hope this helps.

Excellent device! The only problem I found (so far): if you want to delete all entries in CONTACTS you'll have to do it one at a time as it doesn't have the "select all" nor "delete all" option. It seems that there is also a problem with Back-ups but I'm not sure yet, I'll test it further more. What I like the most: it comes with AC and car charger, display protection film, car and belt holder. CAUTION with belt holder, it drops very easy.

pplz plz dont cry over wifi for G500,think about the company as well they have planned to run their business bit more longer than your thoughts,i mean if they had put everything in one phone then they got nothing else to show and close the shop go home.
next model will come with wifi thats for sure then next model will have some kind key pad as well and then next model might have bit bigger memory first time in wm5 and support both sd and mini sd cards so on...........!
so plz pick up your G500 for now and dont whinge thats a good phone :)
