I owen this phoen about 4 Months now. My number one problem with this phone is battery life. Even I do not use it at all much as a phone and use my Nokia phone for most of my phone calls. But my O2 need to be charge everyday otherwise run out of power. I am not sure if or when Sony W960 come then is it good enough to replace my O2?
i buy it about 1 weeks ago, it brings with windows mobile 5 and additional soft from O2 such code wallet pro 6, sudoku, sms backup, O2 media plus, O2 sms plus, etc... i tested the HSDPA speed with my laptop through internet sharing and i tried to download something.. it's speed about 27kbps - 34kbps (depends on gsm signal strength).. but after disconnect the device become a little bit lags... after a few days i tried to upgrade with windows mobile 6 rom... (downloaded from O2 official website http://www.seeO2.com ).. and i tried the same thing (connected to 3G and used it for 1 hour)... and after disconnect the device still run fast.. i think wm6 improved alot things and bug fixed ... more stable, cpu speed optimize, device become more fast, added new features data storage encryption and sure it's far away from soft reset.. O2 XDA Atom Life with Windows Mobile 6 ---> It's Recomended!! It's Rocks!! Best device i've ever had!!
(( Talk time: Up to 4 h ))
It's very week.
(( Bluetooth: Yes, v1.2 ))
Where are v2.0 ??
Most of specifications are well.
Don't buy this one, crashes frequently as WinXP. I'm not the only one, even the shop sales encounter at least a dozen customer wanting a swap.
Never regret buying this superb phone! I've been using it nearly a month now...not as bad as other bad reviews giving negative comments.. "Two Thumbs Up" for this gadget..!!
Anyway, I'm interested to know which websites to download 3rd-Party applications for O2 XDA Atom Life..?? Especially the "Slider lock" shown on YouTube, titled "World's First O2 Atom lifePhone"... Anyone knows..??
Can anyone explain to me what is the handwriting recognition works? can you use it to text sms? or what is it use for? cause i would like to change from normal handphone to a pda phone. thanks. can e-mail me as well. thank a lot!
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
here's the following things i've done so far coz i experienced the shutdown problem
1. flashed the O2 Atom Life to WM6 rom (from O2)
2. set the network connection to GSM (by default it's AUTO)
3. cleaned the battery contacts
maybe there's an application incompatibility with some of the apps you've installed on your atom life. and yeah flashing an Atom Life to WM6 is really needed if you want device stability.
Try cleaning the battery contact but still have the same problem. It shutdown soon after the Windows Mobile screen pops up. This only happen when the sim card is in.
@AtomLifeUser dude have you checked the contacts of the battery and your Atom Life? try cleaning it. some devices that have dirty contacts tend to shut down on itself. then after cleaning it, monitor it again.
Just bought it abt 2 weeks ago in S'pore. But I'm facing a problem now. It keeps on shutting down on its own(even when the battery is full). I'm using a Brunei sim card, service provider DST (pre-paid line). Can anyone help? Is there a problem with the settings, softwares or the simcard?
How about the speaker/sound output quality.. The one in Atom was bad..Did they upgrade the speakers also or its the same
Having used an O2 XDA Mini and Neo, this looks like a gem of a phone. However, 64 MB ram seems rather inadequate given the features and capabilities. Apart from that, and the fact that you cannot sync a Windows Mobile device with a Mac (unless you use 3rd party Software), this phone appears brilliant.
anybody know how we can get the rom for wm6 , tried the o2 website and submit the s/n but cannot get the confirmation email for the rom...
dude about the shutdown problem, try cleaning the contacts of your battery and your device. I've tried that and so far so good. and yeah, try using spacers to let the battery have a good contact with the device (a small strip of tape will do. and yeah flash Atom Life with B2 WM6 ROM coz of it's low drainage and so far so good.
another, try to use one band of network like GSM and not set it to AUTO for better battery life.
O2 XDA Atom Life WM6 unit from Singapore + Transcend 2GB MiniSD ROCKS!!!!
