Thx for your post. Even though possibly subjective, it at least gave an invaluable 'red flag' to balance the weight of positive reviews out there. I had been considering buying but perhaps would now wait a bit longer. Cheers
I hate this unit. I just bought it 4 months ago & never used the unit properly. Unit is hang, freeze and even loosing battery charge without usig the unit at all. If u dont want to be disappointed for the rest of your life, guys pls dont buy this unit.
Anonymous, 06 Jul 2009horrifying battery life....must do something about it..u cannot use the phone without charging... moreIt depends on your settings. Read through fora and you will know how to make it work like a beast. I tested it with single 3G sim and it lasted about 3.5 days. Same as those single sim phones while better than other windows mobile phones.
However, use the two sims, and it will last for about a day. I guess this should be how we should compare battery life with other phones. even china phones that have dual sims suppy 2 batteries. that's what acer should have done with their package.
Arman from manila, 19 Oct 2009this is my worst phone ever! i bought my acer dx900 at accent micro in sm cyberzone north edsa... moreArman, having a windows mobile phone needs to be understood. even htc has its quirks and the likes. the shutoff is set in the memory thingy where if the memory reaches a certain limit (e.g. 3MB where it is the default) it would shut down to release hogged memory which is the same case as other phones.
the only mistake that acer made was not to supply the package with 2 batteries instead of one. Unlike samsung where they provided 2 batteries for the i780.
given that this is a dual sim phone, they should have provided an extra battery and a separate charger like samsung did so that you always have an extra battery on hand to make it through the day.
I just bought a second battery and had the original one replaced at acer here in the philippines within warranty. as for the performance, it is good. as for the battery, it still is fair. using a different ROM. the 553 ROM still needs to be worked on but i dont think acer is looking at developing it. But being on call 24x7 and needing 2 sims at the same time, i cant let this go. the phone is feature rich and just needs to be patched. battery is the problem but i dont mind carrying a second batt instead of a second phone.

pls, how and and where did you take the OS upgrade from 6.1 to 6.5? and also the firmware for the battery?
thanks alot in advance.
Please how to do updates it always says error in date & time, even turned to GMT time but doesnt work?
And how to configure outlook for sync.
I don't agree about other people saying this phone is bad. But honestly, i feel the same way too before but once i got a hang of it, and updated the OS. It runs smoothly now and everything were better including the battery once i updated the firmware too. So i can say this dual sim pocket pc can make the competitors a run for their money. Its can be customize and optimize so you just need patience and lot of time to search for tips in the net. specially widgets, patch and updates. Its a boundless world out there in the web.
how cute it is...... is work both sims at a time or we have to switch?
I bought this phone 3 month ago, I think it is a wonderful one, i like it. the problem above i solve it one by one, you need to update some patchs, some time you need to management it like to do that in computor, this phone is suitable for smart person.
I am thinking of bying Acer DX900, but after seeing all these negative comments, I must admit, I am giving it a second thought. Howerver, can anyone give me an ideal on what would be a good substitute? My main requirment is : GSM phone with double SIM working on Windows (apart from Eten glofiish DX900, since it is the same as Acer DX900).
