I have a gigabyte g-smart i300 and am trying to buy a Li-Ion 1300mAh battery for it. Can anyone please help. The original 920mAh is absolute rubbish and with minimal use will hardly last the day. ? Thanks

You're right, most people don't care. You shouldn't buy these phones with a camera being at the top of your list. You'll be disappointed.

The only down side with HTC 3600 is it doesn't have auto focus. A lot of people don't care much about that. I just like to point out the fact.

You can test how slow GPRS is on any phone. You might want to consider HTC 3600. Other model with different names are Dopod D810 or CHT 9100. That support HSPDA, 3G, Edge, buildin GPS and WM6. i300 is still a great phone but if you need edge and up. HTC 3600 would be the next best choice. CHT 9110 will soon be release in Taiwan. The price will be more than an iPhone. Which to me, is too expensive for just CPU upgrade and a little more buildin memory. I am still a happy owner of the i300 even without Edge.

Looks like the i300 does not have EDGE. Tell that's not true. I like everything I have read about this phone, but having only GPRS kills it for me. Question for those who have one: How bad is the speed? I need a mobile phone with GPS, EDGE, and Window Mobile (6.0 would be best).

Has anyone gotten the WM6 update to work? I extracted to MiniSD card, put it in the phone, turned the phone off, pressed TALK, END, ON buttons at the same time, but it just keeps turning back on and not updating.

The eBay auction below is inaccurate. Take a look at your battery's power contacts and compare with the on displayed on that auction.

On another note, since I got this phone, I have never been notified of new voicemails nor had a "voicemail waiting indicator" displayed when I have voicemail waiting. I am on AT&T's network. Any suggestions?

Warhawk,
I looked into the claim of the batteries for the Stealth PDA working with the i300, but unfortunately, the batteries are not the same. If you take a look at the battery for the i300, the contact points are in the middle of the battery. For the Stealth, the are on the side. Check it out here:

compare that with your battery.
SOMEONE PLEASE MAKE A HIGH CAPACITY BATTERY FOR THIS PHONE!

This phone is awesome--except for the battery life. If anyone knows of an upgrade, please let us know. I desperately need more battery life for this phone to be useful.
