how in the world ami to get an update for this? icant login to the Etencorp website. it keeps saying i am not registered when i am.
Does anyone have problems with dropped calls when getting another incoming call/ call waiting? Every time someone else calls me on call waiting while im on the other line, it drops the call (I cant just put the first person on hold and even if i ignore the second call it still hangs up!!)
How good is GPS? Is it accurate comparing to standard Navman or Garmin GPS?
I owned this unit but does anybody knows how many meg internal memory has? It is not mention in the specs, I think.
I've got this unit just a week now and so far so good. The only thing that I'm not happy with is the speaker - not loud at all. Volume is already in maximum but still the sound is very poor, though the output of the sound is clear. What I love most is its Quick Link feature to make your screen like a computer desktop (all program icons are displayed on the screen). I am using a 2GB card and it works fine. Camera & video recording is OK not bad at all specially in a well-lighted environment. What I am looking now is a video player that plays .avi video files as the built-in player which is the Windows Media Player can only play 3GP video format. So, anybody from you guys installed another video player in unit (like Core Player) which is compatible with Windows Mobile 5.0 and where we can download free of charge? I think all of us using X500 should share anything relating to this unit, e.g. software application, problems with the unit, etc. etc.
Andrei - Can you please mention here what website we can download various free application for X500. I'm longing to install different video player to play .avi video files.
To: Mr. JM,
I would appreciate if you could let me know how to activate to FM radio. As I said to my earlier post, there's 3 country as a default (Europe, Japan & USA). When I turned on the radio, I can't get any FM station in Saudi Arabia. I've got Nokia, Motorola & SE and they are very easy to tune-in once you open the radio, but I'm having a problem with my X500 radio. I would appreciate your help. Thanks.
Can someone help me about the radio. I am currently in Saudi. When I open the radio, it has three country i.e EUROPE, JAPAN & USA as just like a default regions. How can I get an FM station within the Kingdom?
Please help !!!
I have just bought X500 and does anybody out there a website where we can download MP3 player application for this unit.
Thank you guys!
sounds like good value for money.
Fast processor, well spec`d, light.
Indeed, Glofiish X500 is heavier with about 20g, but please takes into consideration higher capacity of the battery. The speed of the processor is good -since 3rd March when I began to use it works well: no lack, no resets even if I opened 3-4 application in the same time. With a fully charged battery GPS works continuously for almost 7 hours -I have not car charger. If you use only the mobile phone it works for 3-4 days. A 2 GB micro SD card is more than enough for an ordinary user. I do not like the leather case: it is difficult to use it, especially when phone ringing. Those days it is cheaper compared with the beginning of March- so, if you plan to acquire a new PDA, take this one as a very good option (prices in Romania).
I'll take 400mhz over 200mhz any day. If you don't have any plan to multitask, I am sure 200 is more than enough. Have you even seen the lag on a 200 with Media player and anything running at all? If you want numbers, check out the link below for Spb benchmark.
for all X500 fans....HTC P3300 is beter because have the same function but is smaller and light with abouth 20g and most important have a 200Mh procesor witch work at 32bit rather than 400 at 16bit. and the last thing the p3300 is only 400 euro in ROMANIA
hi, looks like many people like this phone which made me think to buy one. i will really appreciate if somebody answers few question:
when using gps navigation, while it is directing route and if somebody rings my number, does it stops navigation, or does it actually shows call coming, or what exactly it does, and is the processor enough capable to take call and run navigator in background as well, and when call is finished the navigator screen come back?
i am in australia, where to buy this one?
is it locked to any network in australia?
i've heard my friends say that pda with mobile feature is very slow, as compared to only pda, is that true, if yes how % slow it is?
thanks for the answers in advance.
Great review on P535, P800, i300 and X500
