well from my experience the battery life is due to the ROM.. change the ROM have better experience to the phone so the blame goes to windows as it should for me... if you don't want to result to a cook ROM 6.0 is a lot better on battery life then 5.0... also remember just like any unit everything is a factor you turn the volume up to loud, have the back light on at its brightness at all time and put the processor on at best performance or play the radio frequently thru out the day will cause a sustainable battery drainage, you can't expect them to account for everyone individual phone use everyone is different but in my opinion exclude the fact that its doesn't have 6.1 it better then my tynt ii on 3g much faster and better performance and less freeze tell me is their one person out their who has been on a computer and hasn't experience one freeze or stall or even abrupt shut downs, now if you have image all that in your computer put into a phone...
remember it cost them money to acquire window software to be placed with every phone then adjust as necessary without breaking the rules of windows and who ever they have contract with, that why we have these developer four ms open to the public to teach and also keep the developer up to date with every individual needs so take the time to view everything before you make lash judgements

Thank you for the infomation.
1) Can anyone have this phone try to put mp3(3to5mins song) as the message tone? Let me know when you read the message, is the tone stop ringing?
It's not the repeat function making this problem. I email o2 support, they said this phone support only wav format.
2) is Vtap the youtube viewer for pda phone?
I got this phone because it looked pretty nice and everything. When I got it I was satisfied then I found out something that I wished I didn't. Over here it says Standby Battery Time - 200 hrs and a Talk Time of 4 hrs. I say BS! Lets say in 4 hours of standby my battery goes down from 100% to at the most 69%! BATTERY SUCKS!

Ronald, 01 Sep 2008Hi,
I just bought my first PDA phone.
I like the overall performance.
But there are few thi... morei think because the 1st thing is you have check the box "repeat" in setting->sound¬ification->message.Uncheck it .
Secondly,i think "vtap" software is the best one i think and is quite nice.
Thirdly,install CEstar software will make your device compatible with chinese.For the wm6.1 rom,i think xda-developers there have it.
Lastly,yes,there is alot of improvement in wm6.1 from xda-developers website.
I just bought my first PDA phone.
I like the overall performance.
But there are few things need more information.
1) My message tone continue playing even after i read the sms. I call our service center, they said they need to upgrade the firmware. FYI, my phone already in WMA6.
2) Can this phone view youtube.com video? How stable it is? I have try to install Flash player V7. It can run, but error occur from time to time.
3) Is there any chinese window for this phone in WMA6.1? Is there any performance improvement from WMA6 to WMA6.1?
I am exploring the phone right now.
