the phone is not a disaster its just all the peoples expatations are 2 high
The battery life for my Atom is nowhere near the specifications. Specs indicate 150 hours standby time and 5.5 hours talk time. I'm lucky to get 48 hours standby time (with no wireless/phone, no additional applications installed or loaded and no extra storage card).
I just changed my 2-week old ATOM to Dopod 818 Pro after having so many problems with the set especially phone functions. My Dopod still serving me well after 1 week. No drop calls, no bluetooth problems. I am glad I made the right choice to change the set instead waiting for the ROM upgrade and they told me it is still not available in Malaysia. Probably next month?
If I were you (ATOM frustrating owners). Cut-loss and change the set.
I just changed my XDAIIs to a Atom amd im having all sort of problems first of all its very slow and i did the rom update and now im having problems in calling. When i make calls the person at the other end is having problems in hearing me it is happening very often. Is anyone of u guys having this problem. Please tell me wht to do?
After upgrading the ROM, my Atom funtions well now. Just follow the instruction, you see the difference.. Happy upgrading!
Does anyone has problem with their handsfree head set? I have done my upgrade of the ROM, but still have slow response when I pick up calls. It will be great if anyone can give some useful advise.
Some people have emailed me regarding how to do the rom update i sent them an email with instructions i hoped it helped. if anyone needs it just drop me a line.
Now that i have used the phone longer enough with the new rom update and i can firmly say what 02 claims the new rom update fixes:
"handling of call initiation after resuming from sleep mode. Fixes call issue after device has come out from no signal area". is total crap i have to reboot everytime this is a main problem with the O2 Atom we are all going to have to complain to them to fix this asap, this is not acceptable in a mobile phone. So start sending them complaints and when this is fixed only then will you will have a good pda mobile phone other than that they could improve the camera quality. Lets hope the next update is quicker than the last one.
oveall go with atom not mini why go with old tech all new tech stuff have some problems but they take time to sort out.
I have tomtom running on my atom its fine except battery really runs dead in approx 1hr even with the car charger plugged in but i can accept that for now.
and regrading some questions:
do you think they are going to make software for the old wm2003 or the new wm5 i think the new stuff why because who wants to buy old stuff. it will all come out soon just look around.
I have just purchased my first ATOM and have founf the user manual useless for the novice.
How to do many of the functions that this machine is capable of is beyond the average person. Can anyone tell me where to get more comprehensive operating detail and instructions.
I am considering to buy Atom, but it does not seem to be money worthy. Voting results are also not that good (compared with Mini). Anyone could give his frank opinion whether to have Atom or Mini?
A pal of corporate management people. possesses good features for those you have to pay more. a dream machine in reality. do not compare cost and utilisation.
that phone with alot of bug, the sys-time with a problem,it aways change by itself plus I found which phone is not competable with some wm2002/wm2003 software, so I think now is not a rite time to purchase wm5 phone, I really want to get my money back!
Arrrghhh.. it runs on wm5 so my games from astraware cant play anymore.. any suggestions??
hey i also had some problems before i did the rom update but can any one asure that the low signal problem will come to an end after the rom update and also i am having some problems in syncronizing the error message says that some file is missing from the drivers folder if any one who is using the atom and having the same problem or any one who can give me solution pls be kind enought to email me with the solution
I bought it yesterday and have done the update. Works fine but it is a bit slow. I have also installed the beta version of Opera. Think this will work better than explorer.
One negative thing is that there is no protection for the camera lens. Don't know how to protect it from dust and scratches. Any idea?
If you live in New Delhi and are an Airtel user- PLEASE do not buy this phone. The phone gets disconnected between calls, voice clarity is horrible. Great Looking phone, but more of a liability if you are an Airtel user in New Delhi.
where can I get the software or game for atom? can atom work with bluetooth GPS tomtom? can anyone help me
