Have been looking to buy a new phone and find the Atom very interesting. Does any one have problems writing on the screen. How easy is it? Any help would be great.
There is a newer ROM just came out in MARCH.
Get it here and that should fix a few of your problems.
i've got problem with my camera keep hang when im using the flash.... i need to do the soft reset or pull up the battery .... can anyone help me with this problem with the camera keep hanging
I have the o2 Atom and am overall pretty happy with it. I have done the update thru seeo2.com but still have a couple of issues... can anyone help me please? On normal bluetooth phones it is easy to transfer files across (eg. mp3's) but I can't seem to do with my Atom... something to do with serial ports? Also, is it me or is the reception really poor? Each time it loses reception, it takes ages to come back - is there a way to resolve this? Would greatly appreciate any input. thanks
yes, i have used the new ROM. There is no doubt that there are great improvement with the new ROM. But there are still a few issue I am worrying about.
Firstly, since the ATOM can be connect to the internet via wireless, which mean it can be vulnerable to VIRUSES. What happen if it's infected by a VIRUS?
Also, after nearly 2 weeks of use, my ATOM restarted a few time continously today even if i did a soft reset. So what I did to stop it restarting by taking the battery out and plug it back in again and turned off the wireless connection, and the ATOM is back again. I am not sure what is happening with it at the moment. Could it be that it ran out of memory as I was playing game & using wireless internet at the same time?
I am not sure and it's still remain to be seen. I just think maybe when the memory is running low due to too many program running, the ATOM might then act abit weird.
Also, i noticed the time & date is incorrect too after I took out the battery. It reset to 9th of May, 2005.
All in all the new ROM does make it better but I still think there are some issue with the ATOM or maybe we dont really fully understand how to use it yet.
Any issue, pls post it so we can understand it more.
I have just installed the unofficial firmware update. Now the internal storage memeory is combined with the memory card storage. Over all performance is *much* better. The new wireless manager is pretty nice. Since the last firmware update I was stuck with the defualt Windows Mobile 5.0 theme, the latest update fixed that, now I can use the O2 theme again.
Tks to jug for the info of the newest ROM. I found the improvement on:
1. Wireless Manager (Bluetooh, WiFi & Phone) are managed into one menu, like former IPAQ 6365
2. Hidden files are not shown anymore even from File manager (unless with Show All Files option).
3. Camera can be saved to memory card directly with additional default folder 'My Pictures' in the memory card.
I'm still expecting the improvement on the sound system.
Anybody knows on how to do data backup? since I always to reinstall everything after ROM upgrade especially for the program stored in the RAM.
I agree with mandy " it is the best phone eva". Everyone should upgrade their Rom before complaint about the Atom. When you upgrade the Rom. You will noctice the difference. You can click on "jug" website to download the new Rom.
I bought the atom two weeks ago.It is better than the o2 mini. When you upgrade the rom, it run much better. So far i have no problem. Also,you can download other software like tv control and betterplayer so you can play video files on your atom.

have u tried the new march rom? what things the new rom have fixed? is the rom came from trusted party coz its not on o2 website? im abit scared to use that new rom. please help out here
Atom is the best phone yet. Had a O2 mini before and that was great too. Atom was slow at first but after ROM upgrade nice and speedy. Speaker sound is still crappy. Bluetooth can't transfer to USB dongle. Maybe fix in next ROM. Activesync worked fine after turning off Kaspersky antivirus. When done syncing just turn it back on. Great thing is they keep turning out roms every month. Now that great. By June Atom will be near perfect.
Even though it's connected, when I'm going to browse always show setting is not right. Then it went to My ISP & My Work Setting again for the modem & proxy setting again. Is there anything that I skipped?
There is a newer ROM just came out in MARCH.
Get it here and hope that it will fix your problem.
Don't cry, Don't buy O2 Atom, Big problems, I have had the Atom for 1 week, upgraded on the first day to rom update 20060123 the latest at this time, it worked fine for 3 days with some minor soft resets, but then I got the shut down off death. Nothing would bring it back to life. It took 24 hours with out the battery in it to revive it, and after 2 more days it died again. O2 support are useless in Australia, even with a product only 1 week old they expect you to send it away for 2 weeks to some remote place 1000km away and if they think there is something wrong they will repair or repacle this. Big joke. Forget talking to anyone from O2 in Australia, You call their number only to be sent to some guy that don't give a rat's a-- in Singapore, Another Joke hahahaha. By the way made in China, great!
