Have you ever used any window mobiles or operating system based mobile like N73 of Nokia. This Mobile is not meant for Novices like you. This is really a wonderful phone for people who use computer and phone together. Try to learn how to use the phone from people who know better than you
Dayarajen, 02 Jul 2009hi, can anyone tell why when i receive sms, the names in phonebook doesnt appear, can u tell m... moreHi,
try importing all the sim contacts to the contacts of the phone and soft reset. if this does not work, then hard boot the phone using the reset phone menu. You may want to upgrade your Windows version. check out my previous post on upgrading your ROM. Ensure that you flash your phone with the genuine ROM released by HTC or else you may loose warranty if you change your SPL/IPL. 100% this will work.
I have been using the Touch 3G for just over a month now and I must say, its definately made my top 5 list.
I uprade or change handsets about every 3 to 5 months so I definately feel that I know what I'm talking about when it comes to phones.
I actually sold my HTC Dream/G1 and purchased the Touch 3G and I havn't looked back.
Battery is lasting me about 4 days on average, with moderate to heavy use.
Screen response is fantastic, call clarity and speakerphone also rate highly.
This phone has everything you will ever need and more.
My only dislike is the small stylus and tiny on-screen qwerty keyboard, which can make sms and email very frustrating.
hi, can anyone tell why when i receive sms, the names in phonebook doesnt appear, can u tell me how to do to make the names appear
Guys Check this out.. Latest ROM for 3G.

m wonderin what kind of phones u wud have been scoring thru
I have been unsing this phone for a while (may be about a month or so) Got this phone for about 19.5 k INR (approx ($400)) All I can say, is that this is the best phone I have ever had. I have changed about 45 phones till now and this one is surely one of the bests. The speed is good and with plenty of RAM having simultaneous applications is easy.
This phone is basically for regular professionals who want speed/features with fun. The GPS works really well. I am not sure how people are saying they need license. GPS is absolutely free. You need to get license only for any specific software to work on it.
This is how it works. :- your phone has an inbuilt GPS module (reciever). GPS Satellites transmit GPS signals continously. Your phone keeps listening to them. the internal algorithm calculates your position based on the signals recieved by the reciever (this is all free) once the position is calculated, it is interpreted and displayed by the phone on the screen on a MAP (like Google Maps) Now here is where you may need license. to use a third party software for maps, you may need a license or to buy it. Google maps are free and do not require any license. So, incase you are using google maps on your phone, you can get your location details on a map absolutely free. Now there are other software available in the market where they may be more features like voice signals, street views etc which you may have to buy. But all the software would be based on the inputs provided by the GPS satellites which is free.
Now coming to the battery life. The battery is decent. not very good, neither too bad. I get about 2 days with average talktime and sms. What else can you expect from a 3G GPS phone. Usual PDA give 1-2 days backup. I think it is decent. The best part is you can carry the charger cable and charge it at work through USB.
Camera quality is OK. not very exciting. Ensure that while clicking pics, there are no hand shakes. Also, after clicking the picutre, just hold the phone steady for a sec so that the pic does not get blurred.
One of the best features is the Voice Command. You can dial a number, start an application, seek help, dial digits by speaking, etc by voice command.
Wifi works great and this has a b/g network which is pretty cool and efficient on such a small device.
Internet browing is good but in Opera, you need to zoom every page to see it properly unless you switch into the mobile view. Speedwise, it is just grrreat !!!
The screen is quite sharp and sensitive too... To ensure you get light touches, while calibrating the screen, touch the targets as lightly as you can to ensure that it sets the lightest value in the registry. this will make the touch sensitive.
You can install upto 16GB micro SD card, so space is not a constraint for average users.
Oh yes, one drawback.. The screen and the chrome finish on the phone attracts a lot of fingerprints. So, that could be improved. Also the back cover locks break easily. so be carefull while CLOSING the back cover or else you have a broken latch (small lock).
Overall this is a fairly decent phone with decent features and performance for daily use !!!
Well, the phone is very slim, light and easy to use but the battery drains out very fast, doesnt lasts for a single day also and if there would be a flash, then the phone could have been more worthy
Cellucity, 11 Jun 2009The battery life is really bad...about a day if you hardly use it,less than a day if it is use... moreI've had this phone for 6 months and have had none of your problems. I get 3 days on the battery with moderate use. I use the GPS all the time, it works with Google Maps but even better if you instal Software (I have Garmin). and what do you mean it's always trying to connect to the internet? Do you know how to use WinMo? this is the best phone I've ever had, but if you're not good on a computer then don't buy this phone because it can be complicated to set up if you're a novice (like Cellucity)
Hi all users..does this contain headset ? hwz sound quality?Is it user friendly ?
Plz rply frndz
well after 2 monthes from buying this set i feel that this phone is going to kill me by a high blood pressure,after just 3 weeks from buying it it started to auto turnoff,storage card not seen by the device,hanging while browsing,screen freezing,and finally the mobile dead and i turn it on to the service center and they swapped a new main board for free as i have a warranty,but i till want to get rid of this bad handset as it still hanging in different times.
advice:save your money and don't buy it
Cellucity, 11 Jun 2009The battery life is really bad...about a day if you hardly use it,less than a day if it is use... moremy battery life isn't that bad. it lasts 2 days heavy usage and 3 days if just sms and call without wifi. for the connectivity i suggest you create an new profile for connection and set it to blank so it wont connect to the internet all the time.i agree the browser isnt that good i use the old opera and i find it much better than the default opera or the internet explorer. my only complain in this phone is that whenever it syncs the email you cant specify the number of days the emails it will get nor get set the KB it will downloads so you will always get incomplete emails. you can only get the full email if you set to download the specific email then sync it again. does anybody know how to fix this? i havent tried to upgrade the rom or os yet.
Cellucity, 11 Jun 2009The battery life is really bad...about a day if you hardly use it,less than a day if it is use... morehey cellucity i wanted to buy this phone but after ur review u`ve got me in gr8 confusion,regarding the battery life.is it reallly that bad?i mean someone earlier had written that it lasts 4 days.
The battery life is really bad...about a day if you hardly use it,less than a day if it is used.If you don't know windows mobile it is very hard to get use to.GPS is non exsistent...licence is required.Smsing is a real pain.Always tries to connect to the internet for no reason,there is no setting to change this unless you go spend money at leaf to update the OS.Contact list is in micro size style and is really frustrating to navigate through.Internet browzer really not very user friendly and not very responsive.The only nice feature is the weather updates, anywhere in the world.Otherwise other phone use is recommended.
In the wake of the recent price cut on Apple iPhone, will there be cost reduction in other PDA phones? especially HTC which is giving competetion to Apple iPhone?
