I've been using this phone for about 2 weeks now and I've found some more problems with this phone. I was trying to wipe grease/sweat marks off the back of the phone and I started to notice little tiny bits coming off and it was the phones back itself being rubbed off. Now when i look at the back in light and at certain angles, I can notice all the marks where its been rubbed off. This phone also seems to get quite warm, mainly with Wifi use. Also, every once in a while, when I get a text and try to view it, the phone freezes and requires a reset/battery removal. Im finding that my disappointment is growing with this phone and Im beginning to think that maybe that I shouldnt have give orange £149 for it...
i have seen this phone in the orange shop.it may be a good phone but if your looking for a phone you can fit in your pocket this is not it.Its HUGEE!
Not much info or interest in this fone since its had an upgrade to 6.5 ..Weird how other mobiles get an announcement if an upgrade is done or a second chance???
ty for the info brynn checked that site and they do a monster 3000+mah battery for tg01 on that mugen site epic so if 1000mah standard battery lasts 1 day average the mugen battery will last 3-4 days woop YOU LOSE IPHONE :)
MONK, 20 Jan 2010another lazy question do orange uk sell tg01 in white? or just black?I cant find out what colour either..
monk, 20 Jan 2010sorry brynn for a stupid question but the extended batterys for the tg01 are they the same siz... moreThe site says the 1300 milliamp will fit normally but the other 2 sizes have a new back for tg01..My e52/e72 have 1500milliamp batterys and the mugen one is 1800milliamp and fits fine in both devices but the larger batterys come with new covers...I have got bigger batterys for n95-1 and n96 and both had new back covers and none interfered with camera lens..
sorry brynn for a stupid question but the extended batterys for the tg01 are they the same size as the 1000mah default battery as the case would have to be altered if larger?
Well in my last post I said I would hate for the screen to get scratched, and its happened. Don't know how, as I was as careful as possible. I've ordered some screen protectors and a rubber/leather case for it. I checked back on some reviews and they say that the screen is "scratch prone". The scratch isn't really noticeable unless I tilt it into the light. I'm quite disappointed that it got scratched so easily. I've read about some polish called Displex, does anyone know if it will work on this phone?
I've had the TG01 for about 2 months and must say it's a great device.
The initial experience with Windows Mobile 6.1 and the Toshiba UI was certainly not impressive: there's not a single trace of usability in Toshiba's home screen.
Fortunately, a few weeks ago I got a notice from Orange Romania, telling me I can upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.5 for free. And that changed everything!
The new OS is absolutely lovely and, with a few customization apps (I recommend Home Screen Customizer from the Windows Marketplace) , I got exactly what I was expecting: a responsive and customizable phone.
Oh, and something really annoying: the camera has no flash and I didn't find a way to turn the shutter sound off.
All in all: great job, Toshiba (and Microsoft for delivering a more than decent mobile OS - at last!)
There seems to be a renewed interest in Tg01 & i am glad,too many wrote it off without giving it a chance of updates like they do with nokia etc..
Ive used a few windows 6:1 smartfones and kept the app (cabs) will they work on tg01,,i think they should but what about windows 6:5 will the apps (cabs) work just the same..Thanks that would be great help.
monk, 14 Jan 2010any news on the battery? when / where / how much / what size/ if they exist lol :)I have just bought a mugen extended battery for my e72 it was for my e90 but sold it..They offer free shipping and come with good instructions on charging etc,,it was first used by AAS forum and decided on their reccommendation to use them..Very nice quality battery..heres link to toshiba tg01 batterys
Going to buy this friday orange prepay,, i will give it a go and see how good it is.
Got this phone on Friday from the orange shop for £149 incl £10 credit. For this price its a real bargain. Everything works great; WiFi, GPS, Accelerometer, all of the windows programs... The only bad thing is that the battery lasts about 2 days at the most. An 8GB Toshiba brand MicroSDHC is included, so this phone really is a bargain! I think it would of been nice if Toshiba had given a pouch/case with the phone because I would hate for the beautiful 4.1" screen to get scratched/damaged.
Rachit, 18 Jan 2010The phone is excellent except for the part that battery life sucks... If you are too lucky it... moreCan i unlock it from orange like using nemesis software suite,,would like to try the fone but hate orange.
