I had N96 for nearly four weeks. Problem after problem . Worst of all - terrible reception. What is the point of a state of the art phone you can't use?
Swapped itfor an htc tytn11 and not looked back.
Ok no flash and only 3mp camera . Only 3mp?--who do I think I am-David Bailey???That's good enough for mms and snapshots.
But I DO get excellent reception, hsdpa most of the time.A bit of a 'strange' phone at first, but once you realise you are holding a computer in your hands, and get your head round the windows operating system then you can't put it down. Brilliant. Always loved nokia's but they have shot themselves in the foot with the N96 < and their custoners in the wallet>.
Suggest anyone tries this out for at least half an hour before buying- as I said-'strange at first but once you get used to it, Fantastic!!!!!'

Sea, 01 Nov 2008The best phone /pda /gps .... all in one !! It's rubbish. I have had it for a year - Windows freezes every now and again and the touch screen stops working for seconds at a time. The build quality is very poor - rattly case. There is no graphic acceleration built in so the camera is unusable when it's not bright (the picture doesn't keep up). Can't wait to get rid of it.
Really need some help. Where can I get software online for my tytn II, can some one help me please
I was a formal user of the Motorola mpx200, and was not ever ready for a change. I always told myself that if i am ever going to get another phone, then it has to be better in some way more than my present one. I did not really care about the camera.mpx 200 no camera.
but i knew HTC, and just asked one day at a phone shop the best HTC brand they had, just to be told it was the TYTN II. looked at it for a while and then back home, I checked it out. Upon comparison, i realized it was off the wheels from what i expected, and plus it was way past the Moto. I read a whole lot about the processor and other info about this phone over the night until i finally took it over other O2 brands, koz i am not a fun of the o2 guys, even though they had good specs.
You may ask, why did i chose this phone?
I have this thing for simple but powerful things and if u have that too, Go for this. The design of this phone is lovely, it is fit and fresh, looks really simple on the outside but so powerful on the inside.
Also it had all the things in my check list for a phone. From the gps to the mini-laptop-like, to the gprs to the 3g.....
And be4 i got it, during my research, i horded a whole lot of programs and games for it (still is). and the feel to get the phone was growing.
Now that i have it, and i am telling u, i can't get my hands off it. I have a bunch of games, programs, tweaks and things i can't describe, (with a 2gb card) and lots of media. Custom ringing tone and wall paper. SPB packs, (ALL of em) and oh, i am running on the 6.1+ (HYPER DRAGON II) DEADLY( it is known to be the fastest cooked Rom)
i said i did not care about the camera but this phone's camera killed me, 3.15mp even though there are new phones that beat that, but it is passable.
i bought it in china and it was for a very good deal.
what i can advise is that;
1. get a good Rom( it fixes the graphics and all other bugs)
2. get a big card.
3. stuff it with SPB if u have
4. get a good battery, and extra if u can.
5. never directly set a picture as a wall paper, or it would devide when in the landscape view, always use the today setting. but for best image size, take to 320x320.
for the today screen, it has the touch-flo which i think is a whole phone set for that, but look, the tytn II can support that. it is really the KAISER (the king)
I think i am writing too much, but frankly, this phone is a muscle, i have found no problem as at now except personal faults, (a line in the camera).
if u need any help i would be glad to help, just personally contact me.
it would really take a long time until i get another phone if i even would.

Anyone is interested to get this phone at a special price?
You can reach me at e-mail above.
Hi there, bought my htc like a month ago(2nd hand) and I can't get to change the ringtone to my own(mp3 personalised). One other question where can I download software for my tytn II
I've had mine now for 4 days and I think it's awesome. It does everythong that I need it to do and more.
This phone is nice and i got it for a great deal from popular electronics
it's really good , but it's also high price .
i don't think it's the best choice .
Firsty, while this phone has it's short comings (no video acceleration etc) it is a very respectable business phone.
I would suggest however, that anyone looking at buying one of these ensures that it comes with WinMobile 6.1 ROM installed. I recently upgraded mine from the original 6.0 stock ROM to 6.1 and the difference is night and day.
Battery life has improved with the new radio version and video update when using the keyboard is markedly improved.
If you are thinking about buying this phone or by any chance comparing platforms, check my comments under opinion @ htc advantage x7510.
I have both this phone and the Nokia E90, sincerely you DO NOT want to compare them, this is the communicator, the E90 is a big phone for text messaging, which an E66 or N95 -8G will do, but if you want a communicator to make your life simply amazing and give you more value for your money, if you want a computer in your pocket that will make your laptop a secondary machine, buy this phone.
people talk about the battery;
I had the GPRS all day on the E90 with all the online tools on it , it died by evening. I did the same with the TyTN II, it was on till the next morning. %( 8(# be deceived, there are more software for this phone than you can imagine. the reason your battery will die is that you are so sunk in this phone that you simply cant get your hands off it.
I just installed the new Opera off the HTC suports site, its simply Magic. I have the Palringo chat software for it too, that keeps you hypnotised. Also there is Yaho Go for this phone, its simply perfect and complete, just get a spare batter or even 2. most importantly, just use the internet sharing and you will be dazed by the speed your laptop or PC will be running through webpages.
I installed palringo on the E0 - completely a pain to use, they dont even have yaho messenger or yaho go for the Nokia, its a disaster.
For the Blackberry users;
THis phone makes your curve or bold lok very stupid as it handles the blackberry software very well, with attachment handling better than the blackberry handsets , just try and compare after installing the blackberry software on it. For the E90, I could not browse through blackberry and could not handle attachments - It was a waste of money.
Please dont waste your time or money, if you want a communicator, buy this handset. the 4 inch screen on the nokia is hopeless without a tuchscreen - I know this because I have it right here. Its just an SMS box now.
Hope this helps.
