I just purchased 2 of the SX66 phones. They work great. I also have 2 of the latest motarola blue tooth ear pieces and they work good also. The only time i get noise is in areas where there is a lot of electrical interference. They work great for our business. It alows us to stay on the road more.
I just can't belive, they finally made a good phone, and they don't put cam! Siemens mobile, you will never be the normal company like others, you will always be on the bottom! I hope you will be bought by some normal company!
Update, I'm having all kinds of problem with bluetooth. It seems like alot of sx66 owners are having the same problem. The conneciton is extremely staticy. There are some homebrewed patches for bluetooth, works for some, but dind't work for me. Any one else got it working for them?
The phone is great! The voice command options on it are outstanding, the only problem I ran into was the bluetooth module... if the phone goes into a sleep mode it will drop the connection unlike a lot of other bluetooth phones. The PDA functionality of this thing is amazing.
it is the same i-mate pda-2k. only diff. being no camera & no wireless lan.
They are made by the same company, thats why they all look alike, depending on who the manufacturer is making it for depends on the services that will be present on the device (XDA2s to SX66 to MDA III to PDA2K)
Guys have u ever concidered to compare the sx66 to the I-mate 2k, wow it's exactly the same from a-z,features and design. That's strange...........?
The XDA2s is also Quad band, meaning you would be ablwe to use it in more international area's. another thumbs up to the XDA2s
This is so much Like the o2-XDA2s or the T-mobile MDA III, in every aspect other than the XDA2s has a camera, all these PDA's are made by the same manufaturer, only the MDA III and the XDA2s compare.
If you were to get an XDA2s you can also access the o2-Active portal for downloads and plays MP3, WMA, WMV, MP4, MIDI files, siemens really need to change the style, as more people will go for the XDA2s due to the camera.
I cant see this being offered to any major provider in the UK (vodaphone, orange) as the competition is blowing them away with PDA's, one look at the SX66 makes me think of a better model.....the XDA2s.
I just bought one of these and it is VERY hard to figure it out. I am considering returning it as I'm not sure I want to put up with the learning curve. Hard to figure out when you have a message on the phone part.
One of the best handsets I've used. Reception is great. Shame accessories are not readilly available, like vehicle power charger. Tested four different Bluetooth headsets but all make noise connections.
One more thing. You can't use mp3's as a ring tone, you would have to comvert it to wma file.
I just picked up a sx66 and like it very much, the one I have doesn't have a camera on it. But I read in other reviews that some did come with a camera. Wifi works great, able to connect to pc through terminal server/windows xp remote. Speaker phone is not very loud. Other then that i give it a 8/10. -2 for no camera.
