Get a Windows Mobile device if you are computer literate otherwise choose a simpler mobile. If your not into advanced computing WM will probably baffle you and you'll never get the best out of the OS.

Hi Direwolf, nice to know that I could be of some help.
Hi U, glad you decided on getting an X1. It's probably not the "perfect" phone, it's surely one of the best out there today. I'm sure u'll be very happy with it.
I'm a Mac person (switched about a year back, and very happy I did). So the iPhone would have been the natural choice for me. If only it had a proper keyboard! Maybe in a few years time Apple might decide to introduce an iPhone-Keys :-)
Anyway, there is something that I experienced today, and I thought I'll share with you all.
Everyone is aware that mobiles phones today are complex gadgets (unlike the Nokia 8210 that I had about 8 years ago). And these phones can crash (that was the reason I was asking people how to backup the whole phone with ActiveSync). And it's not only the Winmo ones… My K800i crashed once but I could recover the phone at least with the XS++ software. My previous phone - P1i - with Symbian UIQ3 crashed a couple of times, I kept taking regular backups using the SE SmartPhone Suite and restored it whenever the phone crashed or I did a firmware upgrade. So all was fine.
But for the X1, as many people found, ActiveSync 4.5 does not give an option to backup/restore like the previous versions of A/S used to. So I too was looking around for options. Found that A/S 4.5 does support backup/restore but for devices before Winmo5. Apparently all devices with Winmo5 and 6 have non-volatile memory for storing apps/contacts/etc. So Microsoft thought that this backup/restore was not required anymore for these ones. If we plug in a device with an older Windows Mobile/PocketPC version, that option should still be there.
Anyway, this morning I took out my X1's battery to check this "production week" that supposedly has something to do with the X1's case cracking around the stylus. But when I tried to boot my phone after that, it would just get the date&time line on Today screen and hang there. Nothing would work after that. No touchscreen, no buttons, not even the power button. Removed and reinserted the battery and booted the phone a few more times. But still the same.
Then started reading some forums, and somewhere someone suggested that it would reboot fine if the microSD card was removed (and that the card could be reinserted later). Tried that and it worked. And luckily all programs and data were intact. So that's the tip for anyone in a similar unfortunate situation.
I then thought it would be a good idea to keep a backup of the device just in case something went wrong. Found a page on Microsoft website talking about the ActiveSync issue, and also mentioned SPB Backup. On Handango, which I use, there are loads of reviews for this product, and mostly all 5-stars. So immediately got that, and installed. And backed up my phone. It's a decent software I thought, with some pretty good features. And it could prove to be a lifesaver some day (especially knowing smartphones can be a little unreliable sometimes).
Hope this post helps some of you X1 owners.
Win Mo is not complicated!
WinMo 6.1 and 6.5 just unreliable, buggy!
But for some reason the X1 is just even much worst than other WinMo phones.
Customers complain much less and if you take the time you can also experience the difference - X1 has some sort of design fault - I guess that is the reason for the long delay!
i just wanna ask how many masseges can i put in the inbox,and is it unlimited?
Been using this for more than 2 months. Good phone although it's beginning to get less competitive by the day.

Shame Sony didn0t release two versions, one with windows mobile for users like me, and anpother with symbian or vustom os for users, that want it simple, though at the down of functionality.

˝The next Sony Ericsson XPERIA won’t be made by HTC˝
I wonder who will get the contract?
That is gonna be another smat move from SE :)))
Probably, by 2011 Sagem will be ready to manufacture a phone with greater than 2˝screen (or 2.4 :).
direwolf_65, 23 Jan 2009I posted earlier, don't know why it did not show.
But Ray UK is right, it is all considered ... moreI'm dont quite understand why the network should charge you extra for having a smartphone. Sounds bizzare really. Unless of course if you are getting additional services from them like BlackBerry Connect. Still I feel $30/month is a bit steep for that. Over here I think it's £10/month for the BlackBerry package, and that itself includes unlimited data (so effectively about £3/month over the regular unlimited-data package). But people, dont quote me on this 'coz I've never had BlackBerry Connect; just had a regular data package always.
In answer to yr question, I dont think the network would know if you start using a smartphone that you get by yourself (and frankly they shouldn't care).
