> In reply to hi5 @ 2013-01-28 11:31 from MW%% - click to readThanks hi5 for your notice about the firmware update. I cannot tell if it's fixing anything yet, but I have begun to update our units.

We have a few users running the latest firmware (OS 05.02.23145 / OEM Ver 02.41.0400) whose screen goes black almost immediately after they dial the phone. They DO NOT have the phone up to their ear (which covers the sensor and purposely blacks out the screen). I cannot replicate the issue and am hoping someone else has experienced it and has some advice.

We've already tried the following;

START / SETTINGS / POWER / ADVANCED / change the On battery power option to 5 minutes
START / SETTINGS / SYSTEM / BACKLIGHT & KEYLIGHT / Backlight timeout 3 minutes

This has not helped. I'm sure there's a fix somewhere, but I don't know what it is.

We have a lot of ES400 in our company and they suck..
BUT, with this new firmware they got a lot better.
Read the changelog. Tons of fixes.

All of what has been previously mentioned is true. One other point deserves mention. Even though it doesn't function as a PDA, a wallis talkie, a phone, an instant message device, or camera, the GPS works perfectly.

This is the absolute worst phone ever!! Work gave it to me. Never any signal. You have to use speaker option because if you put it to your ear the disconnect bar is right there and you will get a dial tone. Very user unfriendly

my work gave me this phone a coupld of months ago and I would have to say hands down this is the most tragically inept phone i have ever used

I don't know if it is the hardware or the windows mobile OS that's loaded on it but i think anyone who tries to sell this phone should hang their heads in shame

> In reply to Ginger SL. @ 2012-11-09 09:05 from mwq2 - click to readFirst try hard-resetting the phone or a full OS reinstall (flash).
If that yields no results, go to a phone repair shop and have them check if the ribbon cable that links the touch and the MB if intact or is loose.
If you are sure that the touch is broken it is really easy and cheap to have it replaced. I have replaced mine (the phone felt and the touch was damaged) for less than 30 Euro.
