the mobile has a software problem but was able to fix by replacing the os. I am now using wm6.5, running fine but with minor bugs. Help came from eten users forum. Solved the batt & freezing problem. Thanks to wm cooker at the forum.
this mobile will not be good becouse the prossecor is samsung, other wise samsung is very slow in windows mobile
Hiiiii Dont ever try the 2 links for . net framework & runtime.
My mobile stopped responding at all & cant see any sim card.
Ill try recovery files late today.
Im sorry they damaged my mob & hope no 1 tried them yet.
I bought this mob. from Ryadh about 2 months ago for 2700 Ryals & ive received it a week ago.
The battery first didnt last for 18 hours & every time i put memory card the mob. freezes & need to remove battery coz it doesnt respond to reset button.
Then i heared about the firmware for battery & memory from Steve here in gsmarena.
They really improved the performance as now it didnt freeze since 4 days & battery lasts about day & half (240 minutes talking & always exploring it as its new, nearly 7 hours working on it per day).
then i found that some GPS programmes i downloaded are not working coz they need newer version of microsoft. net framwork & Wholy Quran needed microsoft embedded visual basic runtime c++. I downloaded them but didnt install yet.
Links to download all these are listed below but plz b4 proceeding go to start menu > programmes > utilities & do backup of the phone on memory card or in phone & copy it to laptop.
this link for official Acer patches (battery, memory card & operating system)
link for C++ runtime: http://www.tweetchirp.com/Order_Support_F_Install_TCAEmulation.htm
(for microsoft. net framework 3.5)
But now im also facing problems & hope u can help me:
*Is there is no maps installed on this phone GPS?
*With every restart (boot) my net configuration is lost & when trying to edit it again it says there is connection with this conbfig. but it doesnt work & i keep deleting all net configs. & start again ?? can any 1 help in those issues?
I hope links above help & please post ur experience.
Sorry for so much talk :)

I bought this Acer last month in Jakarta, the battery only last less than 1 day. after one week, it started having problem with memory usage, very very slow when opening file,even for contact numbers. on the 2nd week, it's always freeze when internet connection is active, and to make it worst the reset button is not working when freezing, so you have to remove the battery to make it on again.. now on the 4th week, i cannot use anymore, because i cannot receive any call, didnt have response when i press the incoming call button, and my contact numbers list did not appear on the screen, only search bar appear without any detail..

Anonymous, 27 Jan 2010This phone is a BEAST! It has everything. As far as the battery problems you are mentioning th... moreBETA version meaning possibly new hardware? even with the pathes this thing will not last two days with 2 sims on. though this phone has mostly everything in it the product support i may say is still weak. i bought mine for almost 4 months now and currently am having wifi connection problems(i did not have this before). i've been seaching the whole web and seems not to find anything to help me find a solution for my problem. hope i can get some answers from this thread.
This phone is a BEAST! It has everything. As far as the battery problems you are mentioning this is solved with the BETA version. Mine lasts 3 1/2 days in standby and 1 1/2 days talktime which is, in my opinion excellent if you take into account the recources this phone consumes. Also the build quality is very high. I give this phone 9.5/10.
I use the Acer DX900 since 6 Month. The first thing I did was to install the recommended Updates from Acer. The Battery does not hold a whole day while having 2 SIM, GPRS and GPS enabled, but this is also a Problem of any other PDA Phone with GPS. I am happy with the Phone and I never had another Problem with it. Swearing at it, but not telling the Problems will never ever help. So some of you should start to explain the Problems.
As the only dual-sim card phone in the market, there isn't alot of other choices for people like me who travel.
Has worked quite well for me
