Hi emery.. well, it was sending sms's etc. but .. its frustratingly in being serviced at the moment for a whole range of problems. the phone had so many problems that it broke down on me .. i feel sorry for the poor buggers who dont get any benefits by buying dodgy phones for me i have to claim it as a tax writeoff and move onto another brand NEVER BUYING ANOTHER O2!. Ive had problem after problem. They can go and get lost as far as im concerned.
O2 Atom life has been rebranded for sale as the O2 XDA comet in Germany. The o2 comet is the atom xda life phone just rebranded. Expect no doubt it will have the same fistfull of problems the Asia-Pacific region customers experienced with the O2 xda atom life http://www.engadgetmobile.com/2007/09/09/o2-germany-getting-xda-atom-life-as-xda-comet/
unhappy o2 user,
yah..it's always in automatic..and it can't find anything..but is yours working properly? i mean can you send text messages and get a proper signal? coz i'm wondering if it's only in my phone..the shop i bought it don't accept replacements. (stupid shop!)
See if you can set the settings to automatic. i dont know what it is because my O2 atom life IS BEING REPAIRED.. grrrrrr .. but i remember i had an issue with no signal and when i clicked it into AUTOMATIC the phone found a signal plus see if you can scan for a provider. sorry to sound so confusing but i dont have a phone in front of me to tell you as my o2 atom life is in repairs
i just bought the O2 xda atom life (white) and i can't seem to get a signal from any sim. i tried the globe and sun but cannot get any service. it blankly says.."no service". maybe there's just a setting i have to change? please help? i really like the features on this phone..everything works fine though..i can connect to the internet and everything else..it's just that there's no service..
thank you in advance...:)
Recently purchased O2 Atom Life, after 10 years of using Nokia. Voice quality is pathetic (even while using handsfree), battery is half that of Nokia 6681 for similar number of calls, problems in connecting through bluetooth, non-intuitive interface, hangs often. Goods points include - ease to setup email and WiFi, catches GSM signal where 6681 had problems, good PC sync with Outlook.
Bluesy.. you have just bought the o2 atom life phone by the sound of things. Just give it the atom life approx. 4 months and come back to the forum and lets see how you are going then ... like a lot of other o2 atom people this new broom sweeps well at first then ... after a while .. the o2 life has all its issues come out. Software, rom upgrade required, updates, hardware with buttons not working, o2 buzzing speakers, batteries peroforming poorly, poor o2 customer service, etc. one only needs to look through the list of o2 complaints here and see the issues with this phone. Perhaps a rating of 4.8 out of 10 by users on another website might give you an idea that the issues arent peculiar to the people that frequent this site or a simple google search by typing in eg. o2 atom life followed by some key words eg. issues, complaints, problems, user reviews etc.
I don't know what you are talking about, I had this phone after upgrading from an Atom Exec and have had nothing but grief with it. firstly it stalls alot, secondly the phone refuses to sync with my PC amd lastly the SD card isn't being registered, have had the phone for a month and it is already going into be serviced for the second time. So I am about ready to boycott o2 all together. by the way it's the 3rd o2 I've had in 6 months, so that should tell you how realable they are, the Life is just a $1000 paper weight
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gaFNk7LS-d8&feature=related this is a very funny video by yet another unhappy o2 atom exec users. I know exactly what this guy is going through. very much similar to my problems i had with my o2 atom phone. I urge anyone to make a video and post it onto youtube. customer service wouldnt even care anyway about this guys problems.
Pavneet.. WTF are you talking about antivirus scanning. This phone failed to perform even before I hooked up on the internet. Buttons that dont work, buzzing speakers, loose screens, poor battery life, poor customer service, etc etc. just do a simple google search ARE NOT related to viruses.
check out this unhappy o2 atom user on youtube. yes, another video to the one linke posted early by yet another unhappy o2 atom user. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qWjj1MxKUc
for those interested in this phone please do your research carefully, please read the posts in this section and feel free to ask questions if you are still uncertain about this o2 life phone.
how does an apple ipod touch and a o2 atom life compare... thats like comparing apples with oranges? one is a pda/phone and the other is a mp3/entertainment device?
I am using this phone after I bought this in Hongkong. I am fully satisfied with this Atom Life only except the performance of connecting to a network. When I get into a building, the antenna shows just one or two bars or cannot connect any network. Is this the general problem that every users experience ?
it is a good phone i like it but it sometime really create problems. But it has massive features like it's sound quality can be compared with the apple ipod touch i am saying this because i have both of them maybe the headphone provided along with them are not good but it plays well in all other speakers by using a converter. it has a high defination surround sound and dual speakers which no other pda have.
it is a good phone basically. the people who are a having probllems may be because they are not using any antivirus software while working on the net
Here here .. anthony .. your words of wisdom echo to my own sentiments. this phone has caused me no end of problems. i wouldnt be surprised if o2 simply just rebadge this into a different device ...like they do (continuously introducing new and upgraded models) why dont they just get the basic models down pat first like the o2 atom life before trying to sell new models. this phone has been a complete failure for me from a business sense. constantly having problems to a point its better for me to go out and buy something else than have to take it back for constant repairs... lets hope that the managers at O2 phone company are closely monitoring their stats and burn their bottom line as well like it affected mine with all the mucking around, freezing and missed phone calls (drop outs, sms's not arriving, hard resetting of the phone on a random basis) that I had while my O2 atom life WAS WORKING .. and is now .. all but DEAD. RIP Atom Life... RIP
This is a very bad device and a waste of money. I donot understand how can a company with a prospect of competing with big companies produce a very bad device like that. It is not a stable device requires reboot at least 3 times a day, output sound is very bad, camera is bad and its battery is
useless and worst ever customer service. a $200 device is better.
Bob.. forget trying to run this software on this phone. do some simple searches on google. type: o2 atom life then the words eg. issues, complaints, problems, user reviews... there is a consistant chorus of dissatisfaction from many, many users and poor ratings to match. thats why im getting away from this phone because im one of the dissatisfied o2 customers as well thats had a gutful of the problems with this phone. hope that helps you out?
it will probably run poorly like the other windows applications i ran on this phone. check all the previous posts and dont buy this phone. thats my recommendation from a user of this phone. pretty strong words. DONT BUY. read what you will .. but just remember those two words.
