Terry the same thing happened to me a couple weeks ago. It dropped from my bed onto the carpet from a very short height and cracked. O2 took it and even though I'm insured and it's in warrenty said it would cost me £135 to fix. I'm insured though and o2 insure are now going to pick up my broken phone and deliver a new one.

Nice phone err PDA. As a phone it's very bulky but does everything that it says on the tin. As a PDA it works very well and runs most applications well. The problem is using in both modes! I use Tom Tom Navigator 5 with a Tom Tom Bluetooth receiver and it locks up every hour or so. This happens even if the telephone functionality is off. Tom Tom support told me to switch off the phone when it's used as in navigation mode, very useful if your expecting a call don't you think. I'm now left with a phone/pda combination that doesn't function as it should. Oh and I forgot to mention that it was O2 that reccomended the combination and TomTom's website say that it's compatible. Is it just me or is anyone else experiencing these problems?
I accidentally dropped it (from the height of my knee) for the first time and the LCD touch screen cracked (that's with casing on - useless casing, poorly built). O2 want to change the whole screen instead only the touch screen layer (wonder why??). The cost is GBP 160 (the reason!!). So I don't recommend this phone to anybody.
Had mine about 6 months and have no problems at all - bluetooth, wifi, phone, gps navigation all work superb. Only thing I get angry about is that O2 asia still haven't sorted out a blackberry upgrade like in the UK.. everyone was expecting this upgrade in the Spring!
why cant you put mp3s onto xda 2i!!why can i only listen to them on the memory card!!really sucks that does!
I had such an unhappy experience with this phone that I told myself no more O2.
i think this is a wonderful device apart from the fact that it the lcd screen gets a bubble like watery liquid in it every so often which i think could be rain which effects the wireless signal also.
Waste of money.After a month im back with my old phone and laptops.Always freeze,slow and stops responding.I wish i can get my money back.
Please help i can sycronise jpegs midis etc to my phone but no videos or mp3!really annoying please help me some mail me or post here thankz!!!!
I would like to give my opinion for those who think of buying an XDA 2i in the future. Before buying this equipment you have to ask yourself... Do I need a Phone or a PDA??? Having this features in one unit will definitely incounter a little bit of problem. Dont get me wrong but I also owned the XDA 2i for almost six months now, it freezes twice since then. My simple advise: Do not push the PDA phone to the maximum limit thingking that it has the same function and capabilities as the regular PC.
Hi. I am planning to buy an o2 xda2i. well i just wanted to know wht is the latest software version of this pda. pls reply soon.
I purchased an XDA IIi on the 15th of Sept - 9 days later I was on phone number 2. The problems with phone No.1 were manyfold, hangin, loss of signal, no communication with the "O2 Blue" & a "Motorola HS" series Bluetooth headsets. Same problem - beep in the hearpeice, ringing sound in the earpeice, but nothing else. The team at O2 told me to download the latest software and re load it - the software details were exactly the same as before - the phone was already running the latest software! The O2 shop agreed to change the phone. Phone number 2 had me climbing the walls, constantly resetting itself for a whole evening - with the climax being not able to turn the damn thing on for over 6 hours - not even with having the battery out for a while - when it did come to life none of my info was left in it. As one of the earlier guys said - if you need good reliable communications, this is not the phone you need. My latest trip to the phone shop has now secured me a Nokia 9500, not in the same class I suppose, but my 9210 saw me through hell and high water even after it has been dropped a few times. Good luck to anybody that has got one that is working right - All the best people....
Hi considering buying one of these? re: the lock ups have you tried the xda2s fix of removing the O2 from the startup folder?
Go onto the XDA2s reviews and check it out it may solve your problems. Buying one of these from O2 online at £99 its a steal and with a £45 BT GPS unit its Sat Nav heaven.
Only Gripe I have is the 40p charge to call other mobiles... Talk about rip off its disgusting. O2 shame on you, I'll be taking that up with the ombudsman. I think its provider discrimination.
Ohhh, and there's another thing. The guy in the O2 shop suggested downloading the latest software upgrade from the XDA site under the O2 site. Yeah I di the download, installed the first of the 2 parts as instructed, and the second part would not install at all. It said there was no Sync connection (having just done the 1st one Sync'd. So with half an upgrade, I had no choice but to do a complete reset of the entire device, and reinstall and set up everything. Result? Everything lost and start from scratch. hey..... it gets better.

Well. I am so glad there are people out there who actually like this thing. I have had mine for a month now, and it has to be the most unreliable piece of kit I have ever purchased. I go to a meeting and all I do is set the ringer to vibrate only, then I go to use the phone later and it has hung. 3 software resets before I can make a call AND hear the person at the other end. This is regular. Spurious hanging of the phone system. And have you ever tried to use this with a Jabra BT250v Bluetooth? I travel a whole lot and HAVE to have reliable communication on the move. Not now!!! The combination of ther Jabra and the XDA renders receiving a phone call in the car as playing Russian Roulette. It may work, cos the last call did. Then again, it probably wont. You get the bleep in your ear, and even the ring tone on an incoming call, but try answering it and I get silence most of the time. So, we soft reset the phone, we turn the Jabra on and off a few times, and it all comes back to life....... until the next call. I am about to holler at O2 AND Jabra, who will no doubt blame each other and leave me, the customer, with an item that does not conform to the UK Sale of Goods Act, in that it is NOT fot for the purpose it is sold. Yeah, you guessed. I am angry with this piece of work.
