If you need chinese language on Atom, why don't you use chinese star.
my PDA (O2 ATOM ) cannot read email in chinese. can anyone advice me what software to use.
I bought this phone in nov 2006. I would say, it is the best pda available in the market. 1 of the best i have ever used. The only draw back is its not so great sound and a average camera.
I bought this phone 6months ago and after 3 months i discovered some of shops selling same phone but its with WM6, how come? i contacted sole distributer; but they refuse and said its impossible they dont have any idia about that and when i visited local shops they said they will charge $50 for upgrade, why O2 is playing with customers?
they are releasing new devices with latest software and leaving old phone without update and by this way user also hate the brand and offcource people will not come back or in future no one think to buy O2 where as other companys updating their devices regularly and if you see lot of things are old at O2 site not updated and just forgotton.
i belive if they keep this kind of strategy they will going to lose big chunk of bussiness in coming years; while others attaracting customers with best comitment service & eye candy features.
i loved the phone in the beginning. its superb with all its function and the softwares you can install. it was just great. but now after a around 2 months of use. Its shuts off automatically and does not turn on. i reset it to fac default. Its worked. no problems....now after a week same problem. the phone does not turn on.
I bought this PDA (O2 Atom Exec) early August 2007 because M1 (Singapore) having offer for National Day, it costs me only about S$500 with 2 years plan (save almost 50% compare with other operators in Singapore).
My First PDA was Acer N30 and HP2000 series, than PDA phone was Eten M500, O2 mini, Dopod 818Pro (6 months) and recent O2 Atom Exec.
I'm happy with this O2 phone, 818Pro gave me one big problem on sms, once 3rd party software installed, the SMS is blank, cannot create text, read message unless you hardreset the fone - I called Dopod service centre, they told me due to 3rd party software, other than that Dopod 818Pro is fine with me. The SMS bugs push me to purchase O2 Atom Exec (party because of the discount too).
My experience with O2 Atom Exec only about 3 weeks, it works fine with me, I can provide some information for the potential buyer.
1) Camera - So so only (Dopod 818Pro is better), but if you need a good camera, use your digital camera.
2) Video/Movie - I use TCPMP most of the time instead of built-in Media Player, TCPMP is free and can support more format than the media player.
3) Sound - fine with me as I'm not so particular.
4) T9 - this phone not support T9, but go and install T9 phone pad -"PhonePad_Magician_Generic_WWE_RC12" and solve this problem.
5) Chinese Text - For Chinese SMS you need to install 3rd party software, I used CE-Star that provided by Dopod 818Pro, if you have friend that using Dopod, you can request a copy from them, or purchase online.
6) Battery - Fine with me as I charge daily.
7) Dictionary (English)- I installed Oxford DDT and work well.
8) MP3 - No problem (TCPMP can support too)
9) Ear buds - design not great, but is really good for me when going gym, it won't drop easily.
Other sofware that I install
1) Agenda one
2) iFlytek voicebook - I like to use this reader to read Chinese Novel, the text can be very big.
3) Japan2Go phrase book
4) RealOne player
5) Japanese dictionary
6) Spb Insight - RSS
7) SysWatch - view battery status and memory
8) CJ Reader - if your phone not support Chinse, you can use this software to read Chinese and Japanese novels (txt or html file).
I used to convert DVD movies and some TV program to watch when I take MRT to work and it works fine on TCPMP.
When you install 3rd party games in your PDA, O2 will paste the link to your game folder (in main memory), please create one "mygames" in your miniSD card and move all games to this "mygames" folder, this will help when you hardreset your PDA, and you need not to re-install all your games - it works fine.
I've one question here, O2 Atom Exec have one function is "GPS", do I need to purchase GPS software or the adaptor, hope someone can answer me.
I want to buy this handset. Does this handset has any small keyboard (folding) like XDA Zinc? any other recommendation regarding this handset...
I am from India and planning to buy one,would like suggestions from existing users.
I exprience with a problem with it. All sound gone, unless I turn on the FM radio and then turn on the speaker. So mean I need to standby the radio to enable the speaker sound. Do any one got I dea on that?
I am experience trouble when I turn on speaker phone on my O2 XDA Atom Exec. When the speaker phone is turned on during a call, the person on the other end cannot hear my voice clearly. I can hear their voice clearly, but on the other side, they cannot hear the voice clearly. They hear some sound like Trrrr... something similar to what happens when mobile is close to a magnetic speaker. I made sure that there is no speaker or any other magnatic field around me, but still, the person on the other side cannot hear my voice clearly.
Is anyone else experiencing the same problem? Can someone please tell me how to solve this problem?
Thank you very much in advance.
this a warning to all those who are planning to buy o2 devices in the future! beware!
I am from India. I was happy using O2 phones such as the XDA II and the Atom so I decided to go in for another. I purchased an O2 XDA Stealth on Feb 12th 2007 and had immediately regretted the decision as I started facing a hell lot of problems in the device. Almost after a month of correspondence with O2 they sent me a replacement handset. I was happy until i opened the new unit. It had the same problems and some new. Again after long talks with O2 (Mr Keanu) they sent me another replacement promising me that this would work but it did not. Naturally I was very angry and frustrated. At this stage I ahd lost all faith in the Stealth and demanded O2 to give me some other handset for all the inconvienience that I have faced . After a series of talks with O2 Singapore(Mr Keanu) I received an Atom Exec. But my problems worsened! After a couple of days the Exec "died" ie it would not charge. when the charger was connected it would show full battery and when disconnected it would switch off and not switch on for days. Highly annoyed and frustrated I began my talks again with O2 and at the same time bought the O2 Zinc. That was another error from my side as the Zinc also had problems. Its indicator LED malfunctioned and the microphone gave out static. Those were horrible times for me having two defective handsets. O2 finally agreed to replace both these handsets and they did. So I have already used 3 Stealths, 2 Atom Execs and 2 Zincs. That adds up to 7 O2 phones in about five and a half months!!!
Well things dont end here. once again I am having problems with the Zinc such as the LED is malfunctioning, the speaker switches on automatically when a call is made, the speaker dies out, screen freezes..etc..
So to all those who are planning on investing their money on an O2 device please do not as the quality of O2 devices is degrading day by day and is no longer dependable as it once upon a time was.
if any of you want to know bout the problems i faced in these many devices please contact me on
I have bought for O2 Exec at December 06.All of the function are good except the speaker.
It has rough voice that combined with other.
I think the company should solve the problem in this case.
I will like to solve the software related issues of yours..
