does this thing have a FM radio? Saw that it has, on another site.
Very nice Smart Phone & reliable i bought it less than a month ago. But i want to install the arabic language on it.
Also i want to bring something like a shock absorber to avoid scratchs.
Do anyone have any ideas?!
May I know will this phone has multilanguage function, the language is Chinese? This is my main concern. Thanks for your time
Buy the headphone jack on ebay, I paid for it 2 dollars plus chipping. At the same place you can get a silicon sleeve to protect it. Seller is Johnnyhs321. He's cool I got my stuff no problem, very fast. BTW I use it in Canada on FIDO/Rogers, 3G works perfectly it's scary it is so fast forget wifi
I have the p3600 for about a month now and it is an awesome unit. The reception is the clearest I ahve ever heard on a phone never minda PDA based phone. It is very relaible as well. I ahve travelled to several countries and it swithced the band, etc. with no problems. It is also very fast and easily can multi task a 3G download (email, WWW) with MP3 playback etc. It also has unbeleivable streaming of Podcasts. Any drawbacks? I have had some minor inconveniences with wifi running while bluthooth is running. It also does lock up, but very seldom. I amsure in the next ROM upgrade these minor points will be addressed.
I have had various multifunction phone/PDA and this one is the best by far!!! I highly recommend it.
I want a touch screen fone, however I am not sure which fone has the best processor? I was thinkin of getting O2 atom exec. or HTC P3600? Can sumone help me figure out which fone to buy? Thanks
i recently purchased two p3600 factory unlocked phones from a very reliable and lowest price guaranteed company called phonesource-usa.com----the phones are incredibly versatile and powerful. in my opinion they are the smallest, most powerful and reliable smartphone in the market right now. i highly recommend them to anyone seeking a device like these. they are second to none.

im from South Africa and am interested in getting this phone. I've readr most of the comments. All i want to know is how many days does the batt last? Con u play music through the man speaker and if so is it loud? What is the max memoery u can put into the unit? Can you download and use Java enabled games/IM such as Mig33? What is the call quality like? I dont need to know much else bout it such as GPS coz to be honest you can buy GPR units that work. Dont know why the even put it in cellphones. its stupid.
Yes, this can be used on ANY gsm provider. It is unlocked. Yes, the 3G works in the USA also. The display will show 3G across the top bar if you are in a 3G area. A tiny 3g shows about the signal strength bars if you are doing data on 3G. The ONE problem you could have is if you don't know how to set up for MMS or Data for your carrier. Google for it. I have tested it on T-mobile and am using it for 1 week on Cingular. The ONLY thing I find that is different than the reviews is the ear piece volume. It is the SAME as my other older 2 HTCs. It IS clear, but the volume is the same to me.
this phone is way too sick i'm just wondering if it works here in the USA or it depends on your carrier network?
This device looks like it's fantastic and just what I'm looking for...except does it have a headphone jack? I want to use it partly as a wifi radio receiver to play through my home stereo... can I adapt the connection or does it only work via HTC headphones. Comments would be very appreciated!!
Update on SPD GPRS Monitor software
SPD GPRS Monitor software I have been informed by HTC this was taken out is not supplied on the CD
Bit Naughty in my eyes if it says quite plainly in the manual on page 133 SPD GPRS Monitor software is supplied on disc
And gives 6 pages on how to use the software they don’t supply
Me thinks this needs more pushing from people who have purchased and been cheated out of £30 of software
I thought I'd answer a few simple Q's that have already been asked...
Mike, you can get online by buying a data plan from your network provider. You pay extra for it, but anywhere they have converage, you can get online. This device also have WiFi, which works well and is free at any hotspot or via a wireless home network.
Hisel, I haven't used the Tytn, but my P3600 works flawlessly, no alignment issue at all.
This device can be used as a modem. The manual dedicates a few pages to this subject and details all the options for doing so.
I disagree with Abu about the phone quality. His comment kinda worried me before I bought mine...maybe It's his network, or Dopods software...my HTC branded P3600 works very well as a phone on Rogers network.
Last but not least, The phone does have GPS Functionality...It IS disabled from the factory...but all the necessary hardware is present in the device. A future firmware upgrade and software install should make this device just as capable of GPS as the P3300 is.
Hope that helps for now.
Hey all, I just bought this device/phone (P3600 in Black) yesterday and I'm extremely pleased with it so far.
To those interested or wondering, It came with a 1500MAh battery not the 1250MAh one listed on this site and a few other places. I played with it for 3.5 hours straight last night on a full charge, and then left it in standby all night until the late afternoon today, and It still has approx. 80% battery life remaining...much better than I was expecting. With average use, I should be able to get away with only charging it every 3-4 days.
It's an amazing little device, very fast, very sleek. It does attract dust and prints easily like others have mentioned but It's not really that bad at all. Call quality is excellent on Rogers network here in Canada. I was worried about this being a problem, Since It's my primary phone and main use...but so far, so good. My main concern is protecting the unit itself from being dropped and/or damaging the large display. This is my first PDA phone, and so far it exceeds my expectations. If anyone has any questions, I'll check back and try to answer them.
I don't have this but it does look and sound like a pretty fancy and cool phone. Only thing is they come in the dull black or white colours only. Why don't they have more colours?! C'mon HTC, pink please...
My advice to you all whose having plan to buy any PDA which using Microsoft OS, is just reconsider your plan. Yes, Microsoft is good in PC/PDA, but when it comes to cellphone, Microsoft is quite frustating. Slow, oftenly "guessing" when using it, battery drain very fast. Please use other platform cellphones, i prefer myself symbian, siemens or palm garnet. It is much much more intuitive than Microsoft.
I just bought this device recently in Hong-Kong (10 days ago) and have been quite happy with it. The negatives are is that the screen quality under the sun is quite poor (great in normal conditions though), the sound from the earphone when making or receiving calls is very poor, I can barely here the other side and the other side can barley here me as well. When using the speakerphone, the sound then is pretty clear and loud and I can hear the other party quite well but the odd thing is that the other party can not hear me well. When using the bundled headphones for using the phone the sound quality is quite good and the other party has no problems hearing me either. The MSN seems to be a bit slow at times and seems to hang as well at times. Everything else seems to work nice and smooth. The really odd thing is that believe it or not my nokia E60 and Nokia N73 browser using 3g is much faster then the 3.5G using this device to surf the web. Web pages open up much faster and quicker when using the Nokia E60 and N73 then when compared to the Doopod D810 which is the same device basically. The Nokia also usually has more bars for signal strengths when compared to this phone. The Nokia E60 and N73 also receives e-mails quicker then this device. I think it has something to do with the software that the devices come with. Windows media player sounds great. Put all your music on the SD card and you can listen to all your music on the run. Sound quality of music using headphones is great! Battery life is quite long when the phone is switched off to flight mode but less then half when the phone is switched on. I fyou wish to use this as a phone you will be very frustrated with it but if you wish to have it as a second device while travelling then you will find it quite good. I still prefer to use my Nokia for basic calls over this phone.
Yes, it supports T9 PHONE PAD. A software by HTC not included with this model - but that works very well - can be founded here: http://drabbit.altervista.org/P3600/apps/phonepad.zip
