Renee, 25 May 2009I am trying to figure out how to set a ring tone for my phone from my chip. Does anyone know h... moreall u have to do is go to my stuff then menu then storage card then highlight the on eu want and edit then copy and go back to my documents and paste it under ringtones and then after u do that go to settings, sounds, then scrool thru ring tones till u find the name of the 1 u want
the only thing i dont like is u cant set a txt tone so i got a quickfire
ppl complain ab these phones breaking and iv dropped mine on everything and mine also went thru a house fire and a ire hose and all i had to do was buy a new charger and battery but the battery before still works
ohh and be carefull with the chargers cause they break very very easy
hope this was helpfull
I wouldn't get this phone. It's really slow. All the time it won't let you send or recieve messages. It's Slow! I really wouldn't get this phone. Mine messes up so bad that it sometimes says that i don't have my SIM card in it! Hope i helped.
Alexis, 28 May 2009I had this phone a while back. I loved it and I plan on getting it again. I loved the phone be... moreIf you liked the Duo, then you will maybe like the Matrix Pro C810. The Matrix C810 is like the Duo but it doesnt freez like it. There is also a dedacated camera button on the side & the OS is Windows 6 instead of the other windows. They both have no wifi but im sure you know that. But if you dont want another smart phone, then you should go with the other one which is the Pantech Matrix C740. I actually own this phone & it haven't given me any problems yet. Either one you get, they are both great phones.
I had this phone a while back. I loved it and I plan on getting it again. I loved the phone because of the features, and text messaging, but sometimes it freezes up real fast. I'm still debating between the Pantech Duo and the other two, please help! Oh and can you get covers for them? Thanks!

I love this phone. It's size is perfect in my hand. not too wide or flimsy like I might break it accidentally. It even survived two car crashes. Once flew out the window and hit a rock. The sound quality was what sold it for me though. I love how loud and clear it is even on a headset. I believe its still the only good dual slider phone out there.
Bekk, 07 Jan 2009I've had the duo since March 2008 and hadn't had any problems with it until a month ago now I ... moreI have the EXACT same problem. I didn't have any problems with my phone until about 2 months ago with AT&T updated their 3G network. Now when I'm at work...my phone doesn't work. I can't receive or send calls or texts, but only when I'm at work. When I'm home, it works just fine. AT&T can't figure it out and I can't figure out how to get off the 3G network and just go with the EDGE network because that's when it seems to actually work.
hi, i have been researching this phone for awhile and noticed a few people inferred that you need a unlimited data plan like the one the iphone requires. if i buy it used off ebay and just put in my at&t sim card will i still need a unlimited data plan? i dont want to spend the $30 a month..
Pantech has released the new phone which is much better than the Duo model. The model is 'Matrix Pro'
I saw the Details from:
some times mine wont let me use the camera. i have to shut it off and restart it ...sometimes a couple times b4 it works.
NB, 10 Feb 2009I've had this phone for almost 6 mos and I dropped it on hard ground ONCE and now the screen i... morei have the exact same problems but i still like the phone. but i get where ur comin from.
This is an amazing phone! It is no huge, a little bulky, but remember it is a double slider smartphone. With the Windows Mobile 6.0 OS one can put on it hundreds of apps, liks games or ebook readers. The dual slider works fine, and with the Qwerty keyboard one can write a lot of text: I make my homework on this device. The camera it is just OK, the bluetooth with A2DP gives you a good stereo experience, and the media player makes the job. The batery life it is good for me: I charge it every two days. My conclusion is that this Pantech device worth every penny, because it is a good Windows Mobile Smartphone.
I've had this phone for almost 6 mos and I dropped it on hard ground ONCE and now the screen is wiped out! I used to think it was an ok phone until I noticed my calls drop everywhere and I get no reception even where there are towers! I can't hear very well on this phone even after increasing the volume and the applications are slow to respond. (no, I don't have a lot of apps on my phone)Many times, my phone freezes up while I'm texting and I have to turn it off to reset. When I reset, the message from the past are all erased and even the ones I saved in a folder are gone! What the heck?? I want a better phone. Folks, I researched a lot before getting this phone...and now I regretted my decision.
I've had the duo since March 2008 and hadn't had any problems with it until a month ago now I get babrely any service where I work and I know it's not a problem with AT&T because other people w/ AT&T aren't having any problems with their service. I bought this phone b/c I'm one of those people who texts and IM's constantly for one b/c its much more convienent at work but now that I get no reception it seems to just be a waste! Has anyone been having this type of problem?? I will say that overall I think the phone is a good phone but...
