Yes, beware of the i-mate brand. They offer no support whatsoever.
Try waiting for O2...
I have jam ,so far so good.
now I want to buy JASJAR,...king phone...
This telephone is the best, you have your computer with this telephone...... the best.....
Was expecting at least 256k color screen. Now that phones have 16 million color screens HTC is still stuck with 65k screen :-(
I bought 3imate phones
first one imate pda2
second imate pda2k
conclusion no support at all you are stuck with what you buy
I have a PDA2 and I am satisfied with this one. In my opinion 285 gr for a mobile phone is so much. In addition if i-mate products include FM radio, they will be much better. Also upgrade its camera from 1.3 to 2MP.
I hate to be the spoil-sport but the reality is HTC is the manufacturer of this phone and you better wait to purchase it. HTC has a tendency to ship phones before all of the bugs are worked out and leave customers hanging. How many people remember waiting for months to receive rom updates for HTC blue angels (siemans sx66, o2 pda, audiovox etc)? When the updates did arrive, some of the problems still persist. Do not expect any customer support on these phones. As a Cingular subscriber with an SX 66 made by the same company, I went through 2 of these phones and months of hassles. Also had 4 different Motorola MPX220s--all are recalled from dealers shelves but the customers cannot get returns. I now have Audivox SMT 5600 made by HTC (sent by Cingular since the MPX220 is recalled)--the toggle function is almost non-functional and I cannot access internet or email functions--overall it is a $300.00 dollar gizmo that doesn't work. Again, HTC ships products before the bugs are worked out and since they are Microsofts leading agent for this platform the HTC brand is marketed under several different brand names but they do not support their products. I would consider this type of purchase very carefully and wait to see what defects they send with this phone. Buyer beware!
The phone looks like a smart phone with many features but the fm(radio)is missing if it had that it would have been much more better
i would really like to see htc make a model that has same features as this but only in the form factor of a htc typhoon (i-mate sp3) including the touch screen like an axia a108 kind of thing.
What's wrong with u? Have u ever compared 65k and 262k screens? It's just a marketing glitch for suckers!!! Plus, it's draining the batt like hell!!!
First stop blaming i-mate for this phone. i-mate are only selling it, while it is made by HTC, the biggest smartphone manufacturer. And second what can anybody desire more from a 12 cm pda???
Sorry to be a wet blanket but I have given up on PDA phones (compared to phones which have PDA functions).
First - i-mate support is non-existent. They did not offer WM 5 upgrade for present models such as i-mate JAM.
Second - sound quality during calls sound very "tinny".
Third - reception - not stable.
I used to have this type of gadget, but not anymore.
All they need to make sure that this device is perfect now is to make sure it gets a CCD sensor for the camera, 262K screen, and Edge support as well as 3G when it hits the market.
I like the i-mate JasJar a lot. If you are the on the go professional, than this device is for you. Something that motorola should have been thought of but i-mate did it first. For me it is my two-way, email, phone, camera, and much more. It is the 21st century semi-perfect phone. Just love the design
