hey dont update it might go dead who ever wants to update the xda phones dont u might get more then you bargin for it might just stop all together ?
I regret buying the O2 XDA Atom. All the features look good but the OS is kinda sluggish. I have experienced the system hanged and blackout several times after idling. I had to perform reset in all those occasions. I wonder if any of you knows a fix for this. Maybe flashing the BIOS or something might help. If I am given 2nd chance, I will not get this PDA phone. *sigh* Thanks.
Just bought Atom b4 NY, as expected, it hangs wihout my notice. In-coming calls connected, but the set just won't ring. Then I noticed I was using a normal hand phone pouch with four magnets as a click/clip. I got the feeling that the magnets might be affecting the set since it is a Pocket PC. So I stopped using the pouch and the set is working fine for time being. But I still hv poor voice quality problem with the bluetooth when using handfree. Currently using v1.1 bluetooth set. Going to buy a v1.2 bluetooth set. Not sure if that will help. Any comments?
atom sucky. photo quality, sound quality, reliability all sucky. dont buy
almighty atom, why r u so difficult to find, it is all sold out in thailand at the moment and even if one available it would cost 50 pounds more than retail price, those darn seller
Hi, Does anyone know about where to get the bios update? does it really help? would it affect the warranty ? i tried the link provided but it is not there "www.goldkist.net/atom-biose.exe" any one can help?
Since Atom breakdown so often...does anyone has any idea how to back up everything including setting? I have use active sync but realised that it can only be used for data backup but not the setting.
I was pretty frustrated with O2 Atom. Like other so eager awaitng, I got my first O2 and it hangs on me after 5 days. The screen blackout and won't response to hard nor soft reset. This problem also faced by others out there too. The shop exchanged the 2nd set for me, the same problem occurs after 7 days. It is so frustracting if you are stranded overseas and need a phone urgently!!! Anyone know what is the problem?
OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Thanks u all out there for posting your opinions,seriously my generations was really planning to get the o2 phone coz most of them said that it was really a very unique kind of phone and i thought about it but now seeing the problems most of you'll are facing i really change my mind and i really need to tell my family about this as well..hey thankz a lot for all your sincere opinions..o2 you really suck to the max
Singapore Atom ownersm when I bought the phone, I was told by M1 to bring the phone 4 upgrade of software at their service centre in Bugis Junction in January. Has any1 upgraded yet?
Hmm... I agree... I have an Atom too... Though it's not as stable as the Mini as yet... but 1st batches are normally a bit more buggy... esp with the new WM5.0 from Microsoft... but wat to do... I'm a sucker for new technology too ;p
Think we'll need to give it a little bit more time before it becomes more stable...
Think they should have the new fixes coming out soon... That's what O2 always does and that's why I like them... Since the good old xda days... =)
I am using an Atom and my experience with the Atom is that voice call clarity and stability is better than my Mini. Also, mini's network reception isn't quite as good as Atom as well.
I guess as an early adopter, i am aware that it will not be as robust and stable since Atom is designed with a brand new OS - Windows Mobile 5.0 and O2 has also added quite a number of new software and features, like FM Radio. Well, since i am a sucker for owning the latest gadget, i just have to bear with it and upgrade the device as and when O2 releases them.
I heard that they are working on providing customers with upgrades really soon.
So hang in there Atom users!
Mine one is ok, I just tried upgrade to this rom it is much improvement. Would you share what happening to all of you? Let me tried to reproduce on mine one.
