I have this phone an i love it!!
When I bought this phone I enjoyed it for the first couple of weeks. Then the problems started. First of all the touch screen is to sensitve, My ph always turns of the ring tone so I dont hear calls comming in, then it calls people on my contacts list all by itself. And now to top it all off, its turned itself off and I cannot get it on again AARGHH!!
Love the phone! Apart from the alarm problem, everything works fine. A suggestion would be to add a separate memory card and install all your programs on that. I have a lot of softwares installed and the performance is still outstanding.
Very, very nice phone. I got mine about 2 or 3 weeks ago. Yes, it has Italian. As for freezing, I've had no problems at all; I would consider a hard reset and watching which apps you've installed. The only problem may be a COM conflict for GPS, but you can just change the COM port in the software settings (I personally haven't had issues with it, but heard others have).
Bluetooth works great, hanven't tried Wifi, and GPS is awesome - esp. since it's standalone, not aGPS!
My biggest concern is battery life, but so far it seems decent.

Please help I'm trying to choose and I need to know is that phone has A-GPS or GPS(build in SiRf)
I recently purchased the 8502 and so far so good. Does anyone know how to get opera mini 4.1 to load on this phone and does anyone know when they are releasing WM 6.1 I thought this phone was coming with it?
...Yet again on my replacement device, the same problem happens. Nearly every day, the phone has no memory to open any apps, and the battery drains...
Try setting your alarm to go off at 7:05am an test this for a couple of days.
I just got my 8502. It looks like BBC is not working w/ 8502, at least w/ AT&T in US. I have tried 4 versions of BBC unsuccessful, I am not getting a PIN w/ neither. Just FYI, I tried versions 4.0.0.[84,91,92,97] If anyone is more successful than me, please post your experience :-)Let's hope that in the near future we'll be able to use it w/ BBC.
Go to phone settings. scroll right to preferred mode. switch to US 850/1900/2100
As my company only work with BB service, would kindly appreciate if anyone has tested black berry connect working for the I-mate Ultimate 8502?
I am in the US and I recently purchased this phone. I am on ATT but for some odd reason when I insert my sim card the phone does not locate the network and will not give me a signal. Could someone please let me know whats going on here? If someone could please provide me with some help that would be great. It gives me the option to turn the phone on buy when I hit ok it does nothing. Help is greatly needed...
It shows in specs above build in GPS.Is that mean GPS receiver with SiRF Star III chip set in it(meaning independent from carrier like AT&T),or A-GPS? Please Help!
how is the status coming soon? i'm in the middle east and i already bought it! great phone, small buttons though =/
Anyone tested Blackberry Connect on it ? For those curious you can download the BBC client from sems.org. The only thing I am waiting for is a confirmation from someone that Blackberry Connect works on this.
Yet again, this morning my alarm did not go off??!!
Also my battery went down from a fully charged battery to about 59% in 6 hours (phone was not being used and no apps active).
Well, the alarm issue has nothing to do with syncing the phone.
Hopefully, it won't fail me next time...
Since I've been using this phone one issue I've been having is with the alarm alert.
W hen I set it for the morning, the alert appears, but I get no sound. When I reset or switch of the phone and re boot, followed by setting the alarm again, then it solves the issue with no sound.
I think this might have something to do with syncing the phone with active sync prior to the alarm going off.
Also when I add device lock to the Today screen, if I press lock twice too quickly then it confuses the phone into displaying unlocked when it is in facked still locked (a problem I never encountered on any other PPC I've owned) a soft reset will cure this....
