hi! i am from saudi arabia...i wish not to hurt anyone..but surely can't allow others to get disappointments i have had w/ my ETEN m600..always have to re-align my screen..calls sounds terribly low can,t use in crowded-noisy places...picture very unsatisfactory, video always hangs-up..lots of things sub-par compared to other PDA's around...BE WARNED...DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY..
i'm from Sri Lanka. I have ETEN M600, bought from dubai. I want to buy a battery. how can i get it. plese help me.
Where do I get the latest ROM update file? I've tried to get software from Eten website, but the related page never opens. Tks!
I would say it's a nice phone if I can get the screen to work properly. Every time I try to enter something on the phone or make a call using touch pad, I have to align the screen first. I sent and email to tech support, but never heard back. I can't log onto ETEN's support site either. I spent US$560 for this phone, and I regret buying this. Speaking from my experience, you should think twice about buying an ETEN.
This is a very good phone, I've been using it for 1.5 yrs already, don't have much problems occurred. Stable than others PDA phone after couples of firmware updated. Only things want to add to this phone is HSDPA and a location for the phone strips. I won't change the phone unless I can have other better phone, ie. Goldfish X800
I bought this product 2 years ago. Just experienced touch sreen problem. Replacement in Indonesia is very costly.
i am thinking on getting the m600+ because it has better bluetoothand more memory if anyone recomends a diffrent phone email me HOBSTER2004@hotmail.com
hi i have gotten eten m600 one year ago it worked very good but now it has some problem i don't have it's software how i program it plz help me if anyone have it i lost it's cd contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org and call at +93773131767
The phone has it all, but is prone to some mechanical defects-i.e. the touch screen.
Does anyone know when I can have my screen repaired in the U.S.? thanks
im using it for 1 year...
use last updates and patches and then its the best phone on earth..
recomended to every one
i got my eten six months ago. i am completely satified and recommends it to everyone who likes their gadget to have these capabilities; a phone with wireless capabilities, plays music, take pictures and videos, takes notes with word mobile and with voice recording, easily syncs with desktops, but most of all able to work with a lot of different programs like, nursing softwares and other great stuff. i won't trade it with a fancy cell phone and an ipod because it gives me a lot more. thanks and God bless!
DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES.
***YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED***
This device has been released to the market with A LOT of SERIOUS bugs:
- GSM calls drop all of a sudden for no apparent reason,
- screen alignment fails pretty often,
- backup battery breaks after a few months of usage,
- plastic materials become loose and break after a few months of usage,
- sound quality is really low, patches do not solve the problem.
- bluetooth doesn't work normally, a lot of bugs in the bluetooth stack.
It's been a few months since the last software update/patch/bug fix, ETEN has probably forgot about this device's existence as we speak. Speaking of which - ETEN's customer support (if such a thing exists) is a JOKE. Your only friend is your one-year warranty and the vendor you bought the device from. Oh, and Google of course.
If you're still looking into throwing away your money into one of these devices, give them to me instead - I'd love to sell you mine....
I have an ETEN M600 for 3 months now. All in all I am pretty dissapointed with it.
- serious alignment problems. As you know, the main interface of the phone is its touch-sensitive-display, and if it does not work right you cannot use the equipment. (I use ROM 225 version, but it had the same problem with previous versions)
- below average quality of sound when used as telephone (both on bluetooth headset and on mic/speakers)
- works only on open WLANs. If the network is passworded it looses the connection every 2 seconds.
Advice: Try other manufacturers, this is dissapointing.
i had also use it for a week...its really a freek windowz mobile...wen u getting any sms cell phone get hanged...its also hav prb in starting..
I've had my eten m600 for 3 months, I had to change it because:
- the screen could not complete the initial alignment process after a hard reset.
- most of its buttons started malfunctioning.
- the system freezes up when receiving any sms!!
- the whole plastic case started to be loose and fell apart.
- The system takes so long time to reconnect to GSM network after getting disconnected.
- call sound was so bad!!.
i have the eten m600 its in chinese... i cant read chinese although im asian, someone want to help me switch it back to english if possbile.
I have had M600 since Dec 2005 and I am very satisfied. It comes with ROM 170 then I update 171, now I have 225 updated yesterday! No problem. I have Navigon Mobile navigator 5 in M600 with Navibe Bluetooth GPS and Parrot Rhythm n' Blue car stereo with built-in bluetooth handsfree and all plays together very well. Best buy for me! Only minus is very poor camera
I had the phone for 7 months now, I´ve been upgrading it with every new rom available! Last month usin 216 Rom my touchscreen started not aligning properly, I upgraded it to 230 worked for a week and now I can´t make it work at all!!
Phone is useless!!! Anyone experienced the same? How did you fixed it?
Thanks a lot!!
