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.
hi! can anyone tell me if O2 can install chikka messenger in its windows mobile OS? I really need to know before buying this one... thanks... :)
Small & powerfull PDA, i am having no problem operating this PDA and always stable with 3rd party util to free up the mem, Just make sure u install only ur needed apps not whole preload software included O2 install this is PDA not personal computer, and upgrade newest ROM, unfortunately there's no GPS builtin
so far so good....i m finding it perfect...yes it does hang in between...processor is not as fast as it boasts to be.....haven't upgraded yet to WM6
check out the site: theres a youtube video from a disgruntled o2 atom life user.
to the last two posts.
Right on the money! what you said is 100% spot on. I used to have an XDA II by O2. it was a great phone so i thought id get an Atom Exec. That one.. lasted weeks. upgraded to an O2 ATom Life. that one lasted 4 months ..not only poor battery life, moving screen, slow start up, poor pictures, hard resets (even during a phone call), slow performance, speakers buzzing then completely stopped, not ringing tone (dont know where that dissapeared to), centre button not working, answer button not working, call dropouts, call hangup button not working (to a point people were listening into my conversations as phone wouldnt hang up), sms's not arriving, poor navigation. the o2 xda atom life has got everything wrong that could go wrong with a phone. im so dissapointed in this phone and the way that its just become an awefully overpriced paperweight. boohoo..
I bought the atom o2 life and its battery life is very bad. After a full recharge it lasts for a single day (maximum 2) even without making calls or using the device as an MP3 player. I called the customer service and it is the worst customer service you can deal with. They confirmed that there was a batch of faulty batteries, but they refused to replace mine.
DO NOT BUY THIS DEVICE, BUY FROM A REPUTABLE COMPANY INSTEAD
Thanks O2, I've always wanted to spend $1000 on a paperweight...
Avoid this phone like the plague, don't even take it if someone wants to give you one for free. It's not worth the pain you'll go through trying to use it.
I used mine for about 4 months, I had to reset it 10 times a day due to the phone freezing up (terrible memory leakage, 14mb free after reset then down to 1 or 2mb after a few hours with all programs stopped!!!). it was slow (so much for a fast processor) and switched itself off randomly. The screen was flimsy, hopeless battery life.
I stuck with it hoping that ROM upgrades would fix a few of the problems but they just got worse. Untill one day i went to make a phone call and i couldn't hear anyone at the other end and they couldn't hear my voice. The mic and speaker were both gone. There's only one O2 authorised service centre in australia and it's in QLD so they wanted me to pay for postage to send the phone there and back. I didn't bother as i figured i've wasted enough money on this piece of junk.
I've just bought a HTC TyTN 2, and so far so good. I can safeley say that I will never again purchase anything from O2.
have been using for 2 weeks. superb design and features, good display. not so good stylus and batt life compared to my eten m600+. able to send and rx file using bluetooth.
yea.. i understand what you said below about the stylus. the replacements tend to be lightweight, plastic type ones that are even easier to lose and feel .. well, absolutely cheap.
I;m no sure why all of u guys a facing so many problems..mine o2 life working just fine with WM6...it's a great PDA PHONE...
I got my O2 XDAiis this product is really amazing gadget it help a lot to my job. But, one thing problem is I lost my stylus. I try to find where I can purchase the original one which very difficult to find since most of the available are not original. Thanks
i bought this phone from someone else for a considerably low price & now it's been almost 4 months. my major concern is the auto shut-off problem when the batt is quite low & the not-as-expected cpu speed. honestly, i really like the design & i'm truly hoping that o2 can do something about all the "concerns" as posted. btw, is there anyone here still have positive comments after more than 6 months of use?
Hi mohamed, have you created a partnership with the other bluetooth device? perhaps you need to look at how this is set up.. but to be receiving data(?) then .. perhaps you have a partnership in place. sounds strange.. then again.. stranger and more frustrating things have happened with this O2 atom life. Have you had many issues with your phone like me (and all the others i suppose on this site) to report? be curious to know.
why my device is receiving data ia bluetooth but cannot sending .is there any way to solve it?
Cyrax. thats your opinion but its not shared by a lot of o2 atom life users on this and many forums. this phone from what appears on a lot of user posts does have issues. theres no need to go through them because im sure you might like a bit of practice to go through and find out for yourself which appears you havent. i would be interested to find out if your phone is still working well in 6 months time or you have joined the chorus of dissatisfied customers.
All jealous off the atomlife is suck there making nonesense of there explanations.. this unit atomlife is the best,6months of using this device no bad encounters.. so do not submit any nonesense b'cos The Ato life realy works Good...
Hi.. its a hard decision if you got for your Bd i dont envy your situation because the person gave it with good intentions. i had a couple of the O2 lifes so far, long time user of the XDAII (old clunky phone) then upgraded only to find the lifes go dead on me. Im a HEAVY USER of phones making and receivng lots of calls, photos and voice notes and seriously for me this phone hasnt performed well. Ive been so unhappy with it. Im in a similar position because ive got dead O2's and dont know what to buy? ive gone back to using an old Siemens keypad mobile and its annoying the hell out of me because i love PDAs. Once a PDA user always one... but ..for me .this one has failed the test. sorry to sound so general.
