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 am planning to buy O2 XDA Zinc. i have some queries regarding this phone. i want to know if the phone supports 4gb memory cards? i require a business phone which i can utilize for listening music and checking mails while on travel. can somebody suggest an alternative.
can anyone help me? I dont know what is the problem of my handset, i cant open my camera.this note is being flashed in the LCD everytime i open my camera "cannot open the camera, critical component is either missing or cannot start because program memory is unavailable.
can this phone support chinese language or do i have to update the software?
i have done the wm6 upgrade, installed fine from xp. looks good. im still not sure about the phone though, i regularly experience os crashes/slowdowns/freezes. i reckon i do a soft reset 4 times a day. i have had this issue with both os's. i also have an issue reading the mini sd card from time to time. apart from that, grouse phone, great functionality.
Hi, just wondering which one is the best - O2 Xda Trion or O2 Xda Zinc? Is there a difference except its metallic body, secondary VGA video call camera, and the absence of EDGE technology.
I just don't understand why didn't they integrate these devices with FM Radio and the built-in GPS like the E-ten X500, M700...??!! Hope their future products gonna feature these.
I have successfully up ROM to WM6. Cross language has to be fixed through O2 service center, left my Zinc for overnight and next day it was installed with WM6. I tried to upgrade WM my self, but it hang and my Zinc become brick. Better take it to service center, it's free since Zince was launched less than a year.
im trying very hard to set my wav tones into message alert tone but i cant really do it.i tried pasting the wav tone into the windows folder only but when i browsed the sound n notification, i cant really see the wav tone that i pasted in the windows grrrr...
how can i upgrade into windows media 6?is it through internet or through my handset?
It could be due to the OS that you using to install the ROM is in thai language and the ROM is in english.
Need help friends, I just D/L new ROM upgrade for Windows Mobile 6 for O2 Zinc, but I encountered error message said "Warning, Cross-language upgrade is not allowed. Please ensure the upgrade tool language is same as the default language of your device"
I have no idea how to fix it, I bought from the legitimate O2 dealer in Thailand. Thanks in advance.
