@cpam: Are you a misguided or are you new to PDAs? M700 is one of the best PDAs out there. You probably didn't know how to use it.
Please help me how to fix Eten glofiish M700 the touchscreen doesn't work
This phone has been brill apart from when it froze. Anyway i am wanting some advice on the windows live messenger on it as i cannot get on it, it says 'Theres a connectivity problem. Make sure your in an area with good phone reception and try again.' But the problem is that i have full reception with the full 4 bars along the top bar. What should i do? Any advice?
I’m happy to get rid of this. Guys PLS don’t this is proper waste money and time.
I had this for 6 month camera is SH... Making phone calls difficult, bad reception ... the device is extremely slow, when battery is on 45% device just dead . no support from E-TEN ....
PLS pay little more an get soothing else.....
Wait a new E-ten Glofiish named M800 arrives with a 640*480 screen and a 500 Mhz Processor!!!
I have same problem you guys, the touch screen doesn't work. Better thing don't buy any from Eten , they are not support and answer email for you
I bought my M700 five months ago, till one month ago everything was doing well. I could use GPS sotware with google maps, make calls, receive calls, radio, mp3, divx, etc.
What bored me is when you synchronize with PC it just join the Outlook email with your phone contacts and MSN contacts. Then when you need to make a call it is crazy. Don't synchronize your contacts.
Another problem is the Wifi isn't useful as when you connect to a home wifi, the softwares on the phone connect to GPRS network besides everything is configured following the manual.
Recently, I had problems that I didn't find any explication yet. Sometimes I can't make a call or look my emails by GPRS.
When I tried to make a call and the phone/SIM Card connects with the phone network, my M700 just freeze and show me a black screen and turn the keyboard lights on.
I need to turn off my M700, removing the battery, and remove the SIM Card, put the battery again, turn it on. It will claim the SIM card. Turn off everything, GSM, Wifi and Bluetooth. Turn it off again, put the SIM card on the slot, and turn on. If I have luck it will work, therefore I need to do this many times till it works.
If you are thinking that could be the SIM card or network mobile problem, be careful, as I tried many different SIM cards and from different companies.. I had this problem in Brazil and I'm having it on New Zealand.
If anyone here know the problem, please let me know.
exact same thing happened to me, touchscreen doesn't work, no support. this phone sucks!!!
I Love this phone. I am with my wifi in internet, i play fifa. and i am changing tha chanels of my dreambox. NEVER CRASH until now. I play with this machine all day and the battery is respondingto my needs. thanks god for that machine
Well what a surprise, I am still having difficulties with a phone that has no product support!
I am in UK on the O2 network. If I connect to my home WiFi and then start surfing the net the phone immediately starts the gprs connection - thus costing me money. Does anybody have the correct settings or any idea how to stop this. thanks guys.
I am very disapointed with this phone. It does not automatically switch between frequency bands - UK - USA. OFTEN it refuses to read the sim card - making it impossible to connect to the network.
Calls are not connected when others are having no difficulity. I purchased what I thought was a good phone and have ended up with rubbish. I am going to get an iPhone instead I think.
The WM6 upgrade is off etencorp.com and GPS software you pick yourself... Route 66 Navigate 7, CoPilot Live 6, and TomTom Navigator 7 all work great in North America.
I love this thing, it's the only one I found that has everything I wanted in a pocket pc: WM6 (after you upgrade it), bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GSM/EDGE, GPS, touch-screen, and a QWERTY keyboard... well, besides the HTC TyTN II, but that one's a little outside my budget.
From which web Address can I upgrade my M700 (both the software and its GPS Software).
Guys,the use of the radio only with an earpiece is due to the fact that you would have no signal otherwise.All radios need an aerial(yes really!) and the cable works as the antenna,without this you would probably need a ~1m antenna to pick up a station while listening on speaker.I have Eten M700,with route66 GPS installed,only issue I have is battery read which has a patch.Otherwise very impressed with software and hardware provided on phone
Their official sites are a nightmare! It seems like it's still under construction, except for their original Taiwan based site.
Thank god that I can read and write in Chinese or else I can't even get to download M700's manual online.
There's a patch or two in the site which fixes battery reading errors and POP3 password bugs, but the thing is, you must install .cab files manually.
There's no radio available through the bloody loudspeaker! What a joke!
They can make a phone like this but they can't think of a simple feature like that?!
I'm better off with Moto's E680i, which I can tune in through the loudspeaker, whilst the handsfree is jacked in.
Taiwan made products sucks.
hi guyz.....i bought this pocket pc around 15 days ago.....n it kind of inevitably hangs everyday atleast one time.....i bought it from saudi arabia.....and there it comes bundled with around 50mb of arabic softwares installed in the phone memory.......so does any one have any idea what i can do.....im using a 2 gb mem card too if that of any help.....will upgrading to windows 6 help me?????please help.....im really frustrated
Cpam, I believe that most phone radios require the use of a earpiece/headset, in which the cable connecting the earphones act as the antenna, providing the reception. Unless there's an override attached to this phone to allow it to play both through the headphones and the main speaker, I think you're out of luck.
Proper proper proper rubbish , build chip , crap software combine with hardware as e result E TEN M700 :D. support :d just forget it no responds form them ( e ten ) :D
