hey Thom. i'm glad u found a use for this phone. i don't like mine either. i have not been able to find a use for mine but will try and use it like a paper clip too. lol! Do u know how many sheets of paper it will hold together before the plastic breaks? does any else hear clicking sounds when you are trying to make a call? i am going back to my razr and syncing with moto phone tools.
Will Cingular take this phone back because of all of the problems? I have heard that there have been several recalls on this phone. I hate my 3125. No matter what name they market this phone as, it is still a turdphone. I want my treo 650 back.
I agree with Thom and sdp. AWEFUL phone. What was HTC thinking? I can barely make a phone call without it locking up. Also the ram is always running out. I have to restart it every 2 hours.
I think no one on this dis.board but sdp actually ownes or has used this phone. It is the worst phone I have ever owned. Ok, it does look really cool. The best working feature on this phone is the ability to use it as a paper clip.
do not buy this phone. camera is like a cheap vga. reception is 2 bars less than my blackberry. voice quality is poor. i have to restart it all of the time or i wont receive calls. awesome design by HTC but it is still a very bad phone. thing is going on ebay tonight. p.s. i have had 3 new phones since Jan 4th 07. go get a blackberry or a razr if u want a phone that works.
I was using the HTC Wizard or Tmobile MDA and wanted something more smaller and compact. This is really a great phone cause you dont find any Windown 5 flip phone out there.
Got the Cingular Version of this phone the 3125 but the ROM on it is so old. I unlock the SIM and unlocked the CID so I was able to flash the Qtek 8500 latest ROM 22.214.171.124 and it works so much better than the Cingular ROM, the Qtek ROM does not have the occasional missed call issue. Menus are faster and reception is great. I also went on surrealnetworks.com/mpx and download some free applications for the Dash which will work with this phone. Alot of free themes out there on the internet, loaded some MP3 ringtones and it is good to go. Love this phone, Im a phone freak and I am really impressed. I had 4 phones in 6 months and I am gonna keep this one for a little while until something better comes out. If you have any questions feel free to email me.
Can someone help me with the settings on a Qtek 8500 to connect to the Fido (Canada)WAP network? I got a text message from Fido with the settings, but can't seem to co-ordinate the GPRS/Proxy & Internet connection settings on the phone to get connected to the Internet (I am trying to get on the net to check my GMail)
Your kind help would be greatly appreciated !!
This phone is amazing! I got the Cingular 3125 which is only slightly modified (some extra software, more memory, and bigger battery) and simply love it!
To answer some questions:
Yes, it supports Push, but I don't believe it is entirely the same as Blackberry's. It works the same way as all other Push-Enabled WM5 phones, however.
No, you can not create/edit MS Office documents with the OEM software. There are some 3rd party applications out there, but there's really nothing that's worth it imho.
Ihave got the black qtek 8500 model,can i please get to know how to acess/use this phone on my computer (windows xp) the cds seem to install but i cannot locate or open the phone files.Thanks.
just wanna ask one question, can this phone create new microsoft words document and edit document? i read somewhere said cannot..... thinking of getting this phone...
thanks everyone for reading it, hope some user can give me some information, thanks. appreciate it very much
Does this phone have Push Mail? I have read somewhere that it does, and doesn't. I'm seriously thinking about getting this phone. I'm a bit concerned about people saying it has problems receiving calls and locking up. Still it does have Windows on it :-) How easy is the keypad for quick texting?
So far this phone does what it needs to do. It's way faster in menu then my i-mate SP5m (HTC Tornado). Only real downside is battery life. It lasts max. 1 day with normal use. Running various applications over the day and making some phone calls reduces battery time to 1 day. Shame. Use it for a couple of months now and never had any issue with it. Good phone, good build quality, poor battery.
I was wanting to buy one of these Qtek 8500, I currenty own a eten m600 and it is a great pda but the phone side of things is not as good as most normal phones, the speaker it too quiet, it works great if your in a office, but in the car and out and about is dissapointing. so does anyone know how loud the new qtek 8500 is. Cheers
I've had it for a week. One thing is the battery. This is really bad. It lasts for 24 hrs. The phone allso locks up quite often, and then I have to wait for quite some time or shut it off. Up to now, quite dissapointing.
This is actually a HTC phone, which I-Mate and Qtek use with their brand.
Rumor has it tha HTC will start to sell their own now, with HTC brand.
this is the sameI MATE SMART FLIP !!!!!!!!!why 2 different brands has the same cellphone and the same features
I bought the qtek 8500 two weeks ago. The phone locks up and you can press any keys until you do a soft re-boot. The next problem I had was not receiving all of my phone calls or text messages. I am not sure if there is an update to fix these problems. As of 08/31/2006, I have not found one. I have not loaded any software on it.
it's a great phone till now .
i got it from Denmark before 3 weeks and its
perfct.hope everyone feel tht same
