This is probably the best for now until the DualCor Technologies' (www.dualcor.com) new but highly powerful cPC model comes out early next year. The product photos alone are enough to perk you up for sure!
hm... for those people trouble connect to the wireless router, try disable all the firewall ( zone alarm, norton security ) and it should work perfectly. i had that problem as well. and now. it workin perfectly. cheers and goodluck
hello. how to chang the system of the phone o2 exec? (how to delete and install)many thanks
Help! Has anyone had trouble loading TomTom5 software. I keep getting error messages and the dialog box to send an error report. I contacted TomTom but they haven't evaluated the phone yet.
anyone help ? just downloaded theme generator from micro soft, its in phone but wont open says i must open from within application , how ? anyone know ?
In reply to ludlow2001us, I haven't expereinced any of your 1st 3 issues (don't have any experience for the other 3); sounds to me like you have a bad phone, and could get it exchanged.
And for yooku, there's no downside in my experience; phione runs quicker and more reliably, and I don't want all that O2Actove stuff
I like the phone so much, but there are only 3 reseller for US market. I check on reseller rating for WElectronics and they have very BAD review from customers. Does anybody has an experience buying the phone from one of the reseller that is posted in check price?
this phone is the best but having problems with da kind of memory card it uses
Are there any downsides of moving to the Corporate mode and away from the O2 mode?
Remember guys, this is full sized PPC/PDA with 3G capabilities. The main thing is this phone has 640x480 (vga) res. The processor need to work harder. I still don;t know what graphic chip that this phone is using. Unknown... (hx4700=ATI Imageon, Axim 51v=Intel 2700 3D). Send & Receive file via Bluetooth = dreaming, must install resco explorer to do that. BackUp = more dreaming, must install sprite back up. HTC please listen to me for future development. RADIO + GPS + WiMax built in PLEASE!!! I will pay whatever the price is.
Got my XDA Exec three weeks back. Encountered several problems and need verification from all users if this is a product genieric problems or my specific phone problem.
1) Weak Phone signal, at times call dropped consistently for not more than 3 minutes talk time.
2) Storage card just failed to be detected until a hard-reset is done.
3) Unable to create the virtual com port for my bluetooth GPS receiver to communicate, until lately installed another third party software called GPSProxy.exe.
4)Significantly slow response comparing with my XDA2 which was running at 400mHz???
5) Occasionally failed to make incoming and outgoing Video call, require a soft-reset.
6) Occassionally failed to activate Skype call, the software just shutoff by itself.
Appreciate if someone can enlighten me if this is generic problem or my phone specific problem.
Despite of these issues and it's heaviness, the phone is great in design (appearance.
in regards to the memory space i to have the problem of memory gradualy going down even though applications closed. i have noticed for instance my memory will be 27mb, then if i open poscket word and then close it, the memory will go down to 26.8mb. and so on, i cant say i have continued to do this until the device starts to hang. also in the specs it shows you have 128 flash memory and 64 memory for programs and storage. if anyone knows could you please explain how this works because even in the memory manager the total storage space and total software space addeds up to around 94mb, how is this?
is the 128mb flash memory not viewable or is this built in with the other memory.
I have contacted O2 and Microsoft about the problem of slow performance, no phone at times, and locking up. I found the central problem is the storage memory when it drops below 7 Mb it starts all the freezing problems that everyone is frustrated about. Can I ask everyone who can to look at there Settings--> System Tab ---> Memory Icon. 9 times out of 10 you will see you are approaching or below the 7 MB of free storage.
Once you do a soft reset, I get 23 Mb of free space and it gradually goes down as I use the machine.
I took of the O2 active and am running Spb Pocket plus and can monitor storage memory on the today screen. With more use I can see this memory approaching 7 MB. Even though Spb allows me to "close" programs, this never takes me back to 23 MB. This is why I believe this is a Windows mobile 5 problem.
Therefore for you O2 Exec people running the stripped corporate version, can you report if you have this same storage memory phenomenon. This would lead to a Windows, Mobile 5 or the exec manufacturer (HTC)problem.
This is a very good PDA/phone indeed. Pocketable, easy to use, good functionality. Works best without the O2Active software (set it up in Basic or Corporate mode - various other posts explain how); nice screen, decent keyboard for its size (not for touch-typing though).
Good points: features, call quality, usability, size (I find it quite comfortable to use as a phone)
Bad points: this is my third one in a week; the screen on the first one died completely after 3 days; the second one also had a faulty screen that wouldn't respond reliably to the stylus; this third one is fine. Message: there are some build quality problems at present so make sure you have a good one or get it replaced.
I got mine free from O2 on an upgrade (O2 600), and it's worth every penny .
