I've had this phone a couple of weeks now. I've found some things I really don't like.
One is the browser, it's not full internet and the zoom doesn't seem to work properly. Some of the links just don't work, probably because it's a limited browser. I've found it so frustrating to use that I am really put off using it for web access, which is one of my main reasons for choosing it.
Google Maps doesn't seem to work properly. I installed the Studio 66 satnav software but I find it almost impossible to get a strong enough gps connection to use it. So I wouldn't pay for that and won't be using the phone for satnav. Something else to knock off the list.
The display is nice and bright indoors, but go out in the sun and you've not got much chance of seeing it.
There are some positives too, thankfully. The camera is nice, once you get used to keeping your finger away from the lens. The touch screen is good and responsive.
On the whole, I am disappointed with this phone. I shouldn't be because it's so much cheaper than the other phones I was considering (Samsung i890 and HTC Touch HD). I'll live with this phone in the hope that there will be some software updates that deal with these issues.

easybreeze, 06 Jul 2009I wish they would put a better OS on this, then it could possibly be the best phone!
I love t... moreThere is No problem in the OS on the Jet ! its just the matter of test and needs , some like WM , some like Apple , some likes Symbian . its all about the software developers.
if you want it for business go for WM ,Palm OS, Pocket PC, BlackBerry. and Symbian will do u fine . the Jet has a nice stable OS , with lots of entertainment and organizing stuff + great touch screen .
