This phone really have a lot of negative things about it!!! In Hong Kong, the list price is HK$5,680, but I can have it for 50% off from my service provider just by extending my contract with them!
Even though I can have it at half the list price(very cheap!); I'll not buy it cause the reaction of the touch screen is too slow & not sensitive at all! The sound quality is lousy & the volume way too quiet so it is almost useless when watching movie/playing music!
Yes, this is a nice looking unit BUT nothing else is good to worth recommand!!!
Hi Anonymous, the Arabic Sending/Recieving SMS is not available in Dubai, because i got my diamond from Emirates Mall, Celecom. unless you can tell us how to do it, by the way thanks alot about swiching off the 3G
I have a question for installing tom tom
i have a version for an old windows pocket pc , can i use that version for my diamond ?
and how to install ?
i think you have bought the wrong phone ..
diamond is def not a camera phone !!
Had it for 4 days.
Flogged it off today.
Lots of hype for this phone
Only despair when brought home.
Sensitivity does really suck
Despite poking the right parts
Tried taking pictures with the camera
Only managed to up my pressure
I Can't Get No Satisfaction
Only felt a hot sensation
Guess I need a pair of gloves too
To handle this over-hyped tool.
Gosh, heard so much bad stuff about the diamond - heating up too fast etc. Over here in Singapore, it kind of went out of stock from the telco company, it appears that it was selling like hotcakes... hopefully when i managed to get my hands on it, i will not have the same problems that others had encornered... Cheers!
Just got it yesterday. Rem
1. Phone heats up.
2. No maps except for google maps.
3.Bluetooth headset keeps beeping.
4. When using the phone lights goes off very fast regardless of your light setting.
5. No profile shortcut.
6. Pain to switch between mem card
Rest will follow.

soul, 16 Jun 2008Can this phone be used as navigation device?yes it can
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970in paaytakht com center you could get it for 700t but wait a little and it'll probably go for 670..660t
for those that want 3g turned off (battery life will improve, but you'll lose your connection speed!)
start, settngs, phone, band, choose gsm instead of auto on the top drop down. If you've got euro/asian device in the americas, the 3g's not much use to you as it doesn't have the right hardware for you..
BTW, I started using the stylus all the time with this phone, and that actually works much better for me than using my finger. Pulling the stylus out wakes up the phone, so it's not really a hassle or an extra step. You also keep the screen free from fingerprint smudge. Using the stylus is also more precise than using your fingers, most especially in text messaging. With the stylus, you can comfortably utilize the full keyboard option in typing messages. I'm used to using the stylus in only a couple of days, and I find it much effortless than using my fingers, because really, 2.8 is not big enough for a full touchscreen phone, and I think that is why they provided the stylus in anticipation of that, and it's not bad at all.
how does the locking system works ?
is there a button like for the lg viewty to lock your phone ?
Did anyone did some battery tests?
2. Standby without the fancy interface
3. Talk time
4. WiFi browsing
5. Video play time
