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
I have a xda trion at d mo but the thing is i am trying to send images off my other phone to the trion via bluettooth. my otha phone finds the trion bluetooth but when i try to connect htem 2gether my other phone says connection dropped. what is happening?can someone please help me!
I've had the O2 XDA Trion for 1 year now! fantastic. I travel all over the world with it, and would never change it!
I use 3G, POP G-MAIL/MSN E-MAIL accts, and WI-FI with Skype...works at a reasonable level. The only other phone I would trade this one in for os the I-mate ultimate tablet - but it is taking 4ever to be released!
I love my Xda Trion phone, its worked brilliantly for months now and i wouldnt change it. As For Charging It - Fine.
*very interested in buying this phone - my main query is about accessing my hotmail account(s). Is this possible using the O2 XDA Trion..?*
Long story cut short.. YES!
Hotmail and MSN accounts work fine. Just log into Pocket MSN and a Hotmail folder will be created in your messages box.
*can anyone help
just brought XDA Trion- i can connect to the internet but the pages are not showing any information-ideas?*
Go into your programs and go into o2 operator settings. Select your location and the device will reset after. If this does not work, contact your SP and ask for manual mobile web settings.
Hope this helps.
*Anyone had any problems with the Trion battery life - I have had it for a few months now and I have to charge it twice a day!*
Nope. And I know a few people with this device now. Possibly how you are using it. Try changing your power settings or stop draining the phone!
*does this have a virtual keyboard in it as well?*
Yep it's there!
Sorry Ij but the information you posted is incorrect...
*there is blackberry connect software available from www.o2.co.uk/xda
select already have an xda and select the exec (this runs on the same firmware as the trion so will work) scroll to software update and select more information enter imei and phone number and the software can be downloaded hope this helps some of you*
This does not work so please don't try it people. The trion operates on a very different firmware version and BIS or blackberry is unsupported currently. Hey the Mini and Exec were when they were released and now they have software updates! It will be released soon. keep checking www.my-xda.com
connects for free boyo, when using wifi you'll just pay for the broadband you use at home such as bt/virgin etc.
Am quite keen on the Trion. Does any one know if it can be used as a voice recorder? Probably a dumb questions..? Thanks muchly!
hey, can this connect to my home wirless connection for free? or do i pay for that? thanks

"can someone tell me if i can get skype on this phone?"
Hi Lowen, yes you can get skype run on this phone since it has a fast processor - 400 MHz, which is more than enough (minimum CPU/hardware requirement is 200 MHz).

Anyone had any problems with the Trion battery life - I have had it for a few months now and I have to charge it twice a day!
Had it now for around a month - its fantastic - i use it for emails adn as an external modem for my laptop when out and about - much cheaper than using these internet cafe / coffee shops who charge you the earth for a days worth of use - dead easy to set up as well.
Does anyone know whether you can use as a webcam?
This is a great phone, and has a faster processor, I would recomend getting this phone for the power, and stability, and get the Tom Tom Software separately (with the Bluetooth GPS reciever). For more info go to www.tomtom.co.uk and select mobile PDA.
This phone is better as its 3g - however, if you want a fantastic sat nav phone and good looking device, go orbit. I have the orbit and it really is a fantastic good all rounder. The sat-nav on the orbit is second to none - (dont use the sat nav that comes with it though - download tom tom 6 from www.mininova.org - full version)
