for your information my friends
interesting O2 life rating is down to 4.8 out of 10. the o2 atom exec and o2 atom are equally rating poorly.
this device is absolutely useless,I cannot tell you enough how bad it is. I have to reset it 10 times a day cannot recieve calls when with customers. I am in IT and am not stupid when it comes to using mobiles. Today the processor use indicator has been going around for 3 hours, I cannot syncronise to PC and use the phone to make calls. i want my money back.
you paid $600!! .. the phones were priced in AUD$1100-$1200 4 MONTHS AGO. obviously the amount of complaints are being seen about the o2 atom life etc. that O2 are now reducing the price because the price online for an o2 atom life in 4 months is now $599. I wouldnt buy this phone if it were $5.99 let alone free. Ive had problems like you from the first few days into ownership.
One word to all of you who even considering buying this phone .Stay away!!!,this phone is trouble and the icing on the cake is the service that will exasperate you!!
The Atom Life is definitely a "lemon!" Just bought this 2 days ago, and I am having hearing problem aready.
Sound quality of callers is very low no matter what the phone volume is set. The phone hangs quite abit when clicking on some programs. I used Vito Audio Notes to record calls and ironically callers' voices were very loud, but I could not hear myself talking at all. Worse yet, the speaker sounded very broken. I am going to exchange it for something else.
I paid $600. I would keep it if it's free.
Bottom line: worse than a lowest end phone available today when it comes to call quality. Don't buy it!
there was a guy on another site proposing to take a class action to O2 over the poor performance of this phone.. In relation to other sites giving glossy reviews eg. cnet, asiamobile etc. websites. Dont believe what you read on o2 atom life as the reviewers have probably only used the phone once rather than for some weeks or a couple of months depending on how long your model lasts for. There are some real consistant problems emerging with the phone but its just not one or two issues .. its a whole myriad of problems with the o2 product. this product might look good but its not designed to last especially if you are a high call user and use the phone constantly or rely on it for business ...you might end up with a DEAD o2 atom life in about 3 or 4 months. For those that have had 4+ months use out of the phone... Good on you
Hi Kevin? you asking what the main problem of the O2 life is? try .. the phone is completely dead after 4 months. prior to that i put up with freezing, buttons not working, constant resets, poor signal and battery, slow speed, A LOOSE SCREEN that when you pressed it you could feel it moving, POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE, poor battery, slow, slow slow (despite claims of a fast processor) and the list goes on. buzzing of speaker phone was annoying and also people could hear me droping in and out during a conversation. Dont buy this phone. read the reviews by simply google searching other sites and you will find O2 atom, atom life, O2 exec phones are all the same. one word waste of money. the other thing is i bought my phone for AUD$1150 4 or so months ago, now i see theyre advertising online for $599. great investment huh. they must be trying to run these phones out because none of them are selling. wasted plenty of time with this phone in lost business with breakdowns of hardware.
Hi Kevin, the O2 Atom Life is now running WM6. go for 3g capability of a mobile phone .. you wont regret it .. unfortunately as a user of this o2 life phone I WOULDNT recommend buying it - you will end up with a lot of heart ache and money down the drain. trust me, i am talking from experience here. Better look at another 3g capable phone, however, i cannot suggest one. Ive had nothing but problems with this o2 phone along with a number of other o2 users posting reviews of the o2 atom life below. just do a search of various o2 atom user reviews on other mobile sites if you dont believe the reviews on this site. The O2 atom life has been nothing but trouble for me .. sorry to say and dissapointment how a company could sell such a product at the price it commands and deliver junk.
i want to purchase the o2 atom life or the htc touch. i know both are good but i like the 3g on the atom life, but it has wm5. the touch has wm6 but no 3g. i need some help which one would you guys choose.
to the guy that posted below "unproven negative reviews" you must be blind. check all the reviews on other sites let alone this. this phone has a multitude of o2 atom life complaints. whats there to prove. i might ask you the same question and say how can we believe you that you have a phone to begin with and how do we know you dont work for a mobile phone seller that sells o2's, we can only give all the people who have had problems with this o2 atom life including myself the benefit of the doubt. My friend. talk to me and all the other angry o2 atom life owners here in 6 months time after your phone has had good use and tell us whether your phone which you are married to is still working or not?
guys trust me,this mobile is not worth spending...i bought it 15 days ago and now its at service centre,i dnt knw wot happnd jst a blank white screen....and activesync givs heck f probz...plz dnt waste money on it...
I have an O2 PDA mobile and wanted to know where to get the third party software for backing up Text Messages (SMS).
Ya, i was considering this phone until recently but descided to research the web before buying. I came accross this forum which is very good. I've read many many other user discussion groups O2 Atom life mobile pda phone discussion groups and they all had the same issues discussed here with this atom pda phone. problem after problem about people complaining about O2 Atom life pda phone not delivering on standard expected. I am without doubt it is not the users but the o2 atom users hardware from the many many o2 atom pda complints that have been written on the various mobile phone forums. my opinion anyway and thankyou to those that submit opinions onto this site.
Hey thanks for that .. re: TyTN II ill have a look. I have WM O2 Life its been absolute crap and ive posted what i think below. To me its just a work phone. Im junking it.. but i feel sorry for those that are buying this phone for personal use and cant eg. write it off as a tax deduction and kiss this thing goodbye before sending it to the bin.
Don't blame the os.Blame yourself for buying a wm pda with 64MB RAM.We are in 2007 lads!take a look at how fast the TyTN II is,no freeze ups or any major problems at all..
Sorry that was intended for the message asking difference btween two phone brands below
Hi Jeff.. the choice is simple. Do a little bit of research on the net ..type into google for example: O2 atom life with words .. eg. problems, issues, complaints etc. and you will see that the O2 life and its younger broth the O2 Atom is a completely faulty phone. Ive had the smaller one (O2 Atom) and that was rubbish (similar faults to whats all been outlined by posts) and then tried a life only to find it too was a failure. Hope this helps. try eg. a palm or something as i havent used a palm before but surely to god its gotta be better than the O2 products ive had
I have the O2 life now for about 6 month and I had alot of problem with freezing and downloading my e-mails. I did upgraded to WM6 and now I have no more problem with my O2. Works great with no more errors. Only problem i have probably with setting which I do not know how to modify is down loading my yahoo e-mail automaticly and it will make auto log. This make my battery life shorter keep on getting on line and checking my e-mails. Anyone know how to fix this problem?
