It's 2013 and I' still unsing it. I wonder why... well like they say Smartphones for smart people, I rather prefer quality and order not the flimsy android nor iOS. Of course many people said it is a bad phone, it is practically one of the best so far. It has all the new tech in it, it's stylish, and runs well ! The only dissapointment I have is that the marketplace for WM 6.5 has vanished so one can have a hard time finding apps, it's not impossible though. Cheers T-Mobile.

The worst device I have ever used! This is the worst device I have ever used. To begin – the user interface is slow to respond and poorly thought through. When using the ‘touch-flow’ feature – the phone can’t distinguish between a ‘swipe’ and a ‘press’ making operation a frustrating pain. The directory feature is terrible as it returns to the top level option every time you step back one stage. This means you have to repeat the complete search process every time when looking for numbers. Not having voice search feature for hands free working is something I would expect from a much cheaper device and makes hands-free operation virtually impossible. The screen is small and suffers as a result although it could be forgiven if the browsing experience wasn’t so terrible. Everything seems to have a built-in lag which makes all operations very hard. A good example of this is the zoom feature below the screen seems not to respond when a closer view is required –it then zooms in too close. Build quality is another area for concern – mine has had 3 screen replacements in 12 months – despite keeping the phone in its case most of the time. The software locks up and needs to be reset on an almost daily basis – especially when accessing the directory.
I have numerous hands-free headsets all of which have operated very well with other devices – with this one, the volume is very low even on maximum – making it impossible to use unless in a totally quiet environment.
Signal reception is also appalling – even in areas where there is excellent coverage. I was able to prove this directly by swapping the SIM card to another phone in the same spot and getting crystal clear reception. Swapping it back replicated the poor reception.
eshqy, 26 Feb 2010maz, you should chage the ROM. visit xda developers.com.Hi - I read your post on changing the rom on XDA but I have had zero luck in locating one for the MDA, you have any ideas? Thanks
The phone is absolutely useless; to begin with, its network capacity to get you connected with the network provider is so weak, you keep getting those messages of missed calls.
Secondly, the software keep crushing (Microsoft's old problem)and the internet takes ages to actually connect; as mentioned above, this is due to the low signal capacity.
Thirdly, the software sleeps, so when you set an appointment using the calendar, the phone is suppose to go on a silent mode (because so I have set it up), but as it fails to act, it remains in normal mode and the phone rang while I was having an interview.
Finally, again connected to its weak capacity to connect with the network provider, the video calling feature does not work at all, it just suggest that one makes a voice call.
I own this phone in the UK and the network provider is T-mobile; probably the phone is fine with other network providers. But the software sleeping issue, is not related to the network provider. So good luck.
i got this phone from netherlands and i have been trying to change language setting as its in dutch language when purchase. How do i change the language
my mda compact 4 was a good phone and using bluetooth i could connect to my visor mounted hands free by using voice tags, all you had to do was highlight a contact, go into memory, click on add voice tag then speak the contacts name into the phone, job done, you can now phone any of your contacts by saying there name into the hands free. unfortunately i dropped and broke this phone and through i was given a mda compact 5 unfortunately this "better" model does not seem to have this feature but believe you can buy it as a AP for about £20. any comments?.
does not seem to have a voice tag ap to connect to my hands free visor mounted kit, my mda compact 4 did.
