its a very very good phone ! i'm a htc fan and i had them all... my last phone was Tytn 2 but this phone is very good if you don't need navigation... other then this all the good software work on it... and its fast...and T9 makes typing almost as fast as on a qwerty keyboard... HTC should make another phone like this maybe slimmer and smaller or maybe with touchscreen... The design is great!
honestly, i find this phone being the replica of the motorola mps 220...i believe it is as bad as the mpx..
this is the worst phone i ve ever had. the menu is a bit strange and not so easy like nokia or even motorola.After one month use i had a problem and the usb connection of the phone(is the same to charge the phone ,to conected with pc and headphones) broke off and i went to the service in greece to replace it.they told me that i have to pay 80euro cause its not a phone problem... i bought the phone 180e and they want 80e for a partr that they told me it cost 2e.Plus that it was not my mistake that the phone broke down.Q-TEQ = HTC in Greece has the Worst service...
Put Mp3 ringtones in My Windows Mobile-Based Device/Application Data data/sounds folder for them to work as ringtones and message tones
I tried downloading MP3 song from another phone to my Qtek 8500 but it won't work.
Can anyone tell me how to do that?

There is a big issue because with one port used for charge, for usb cable, for everithing at the end, the problem appear when the port fail. Be carefull friends

Clemente, you need to upgrade to the firmware 3.xxx or do a factory reset of your phone to get the memory errors to go away.

Cingular just came out with the latest ROM in March 2007. Owners should go to htc america web site and download the lastest software.
Does anybody know how is the audibility of the incoming call.Is it loud enough to hear it in a loud street?Can you create documents?How is the Organizer and how long voice records can you make?
in the US, if you have been with the same carrier for over a year, you can ask the carrier's Customer Care to unlock the phone for you. (Just a reminder, the locked phone must be from the same carrier).
You can do this year after year.... basically you are entitled to unlocking one phone every year....
Bought our Qtek 8500 over X-mas in Russia -- and lemme tell ya, this phone kicks arse! No problems with it at all. The battery life lasts for 5 days as opposed to what others claim. Not saying they're lying, but I will state that MOST people are not aware that when you buy a phone, you must always let it run out of juice, then charge it fully, and do it again and again. Do this the first 3-4 times you own this phone, or else your battery will NEVER last for more than 24 hours. This is how these batteries work.
Buying phones in Europe is much better than buying any phone in the US. Services like Cingular, Sprint, Verizon, etc. always mess with the phones and add their own api's and software, which degrades performance because they eat up the RAM on your phone with so much crap playing in the background. This (more often than none) ruins the phone's quality and limits the performance of the phone. Dropped calls have more to do with your provider than anything else -- that's a fact too! This is why some people love their Moto RAZRs on different networks while others hate it. All depends on what they put on it - and you have no idea what they put on it either, because they'll never tell you. I assure you though, it ain't what you get when you buy it without a SIM card.
Overseas, we use SIM cards and can switch providers whenever we choose. When you buy the phone here -- you get the phone to work the way it was meant to work, not the way a service provider wants it to work for you. As an example, I can install a 6MB .jar file (java app) on my phone, but my brother in the US can't even install a .jar file over 250kb on the same phone! Now that is a joke!
Bottom line, this phone is amazing -- but BUYER BEWARE -- because unless you're buying it unlocked, you are always open to problems being caused by your SERVICE PROVIDER, not necessarily by the phone. The US needs to wake up man! Unlock the phones and let the people choose their own darn providers! :)
Sound features are weak on this phone -- speakers suck. But it has amazing features if you like smart phones. It's not nearly as good as a PDA, so don't buy this if that's what you really want to compare it too. However, the OS (WM 5) is great and and the speed of the OS is VERY FAST. Bluetooth works great and the active sync software with PC's is great too through USB.
Who should get this phone? People who want a smart phone that's fast and can read MS documents, surf the web, access email, install games, etc... but isn't really for people who collect MP3's -- the sound is crapola! Videos play good at full screen (beautiful picture quality), but again, you had better be in a quiet room, because the volume is less to be desired.
Just got this phone 3125 from MY CARRIER and I have to say this phone is such a complete pile of crap. I will start with the lock ups when On Line, followed by the dropped calls and the hard & soft resets. All this on my first day. Its clear that this phone has problems and that the company selling it to their customers is also aware of these issues, that why you can buy it for 99.00 with a data plan. But in their deffence they are send me a different model phone with no charges and thats why I stay loyal to them. But avoid these issue and find another phone.
THIS IS A GREAT LOOKING PHONE AND AS A PHONE
ITS OK AT BEST, BUT AS A PDA NOT EVEN CLOSE.
MY TREO-700-P IS TRUELY SECOND TO NONE.
Just ordered this phone from Cingular can someone send me accurate, information on how this phone preforms, I will be using it for emails and some Web work not much more. I realize that all phones have their problems but I will be using this phone for calls and need to be sure call volume is good and blue tooth works.
