Spoke to O2. Found out that there’s nothing they can do about the phone constantly searching and therefore generating the noises over a speaker system. Is there any point for such a high frequency of searching?

Another announces are...

Battery life is not good. 1 night of charging achieves barely 2 days of stand by!

Why are the back, start and soft buttons not illuminated?

Why can’t I change my start page view to list?

Who designs these phones? Why don’t they build on previous successes? Why the hell does it leave programs open and you have the option to manually shut them down? Why aren’t more Windows compatible? I wish Nokia did one. Never had any trouble with them back in the day.

If anyone reading this wants an industrial designer to design something that externally works whilst we kick the UI designers into doing something SENSIBLE! Drop me a line.... www.anthonydickens.com

The soap box is now free...

I conclude that there is a reconnection problem whenever this phone encounters a weak signal. Sometimes it can reconnect but with no guarantee. Most of the time I have to turn it off/on to re-establish a connection. This is the third handset replacement O2 gave me but with the same problem. One example of reconnection failure was when I arrived in the office, my O2 XDA 2i (with a pay as you go O2 SIM in it) registered 4/4 signal strenght while this phone has no connection (this is indicated with a "slashed circle" beside the antenna icon), I have to turn it on/off to re-establish a signal which registers 4/4 after that.

If I am on a weak signal area, although the XDA Graphite will register 1 to 2 bars but quite often I encounter call/SMS failure. I missed several important calls/SMS because of this.

Its really a shame because apart from that problem, everything works fine (active sync, bluetooth, wifi, skype application, etc). I'll be returning this phone & will get a Nokia E65 instead.

This is definitely a problem- I, luckily, live in a strong signal area. Also, my battery will sometimes only least 5 hours on standby with no calls!! Seems to happen when I leave it charging overnight. Other times, it's not so bad - up to 2 days.

I also have encountered this reconnection problem. In my area the phone often moves between the 3G and GPRS networks, often failing to get a signal at all.

I've set up the Wi-fi connection to my home router and it connects ok, but every time I start IE or MSN on my phone it uses the GPRS not the wi-fi? What am I doing wrong?

Fogive me if this is a noob question, this is my first phone that actually does stuff other than make & recieve calls & texts.

Regards,

Hi Paul :-) - or any other MVP & specialist :D

Another question about WM6 upgrade for Asus Jupiter aka XDA Graphite aka v1210 / VDA IV . I have read about the WM6 upgrades for this device. There are different questions you may answer :-) (if you know;-)

Facts:

1.) I have a German Vodafone VDA v1210 / VDA IV with Windows Mobile 5.

2.) I like this smartphone very much - so i would like to upgrade and keep it :(

Questions:

1.) Which language Files are included in the original O2 UK update ? (English for sure - what about German?)

- I found an original upgrade on Vodafone New Zealand Site - but any hints about installed languages - except English of course :-(

- I also found the upgrade on my-xda.com , but I canot download because of OEM Vodafone Hardware.

2.) Would it be possible to flash the O2 Firmware on this device ? ( my first ASUS Hardware based Smartphone - HTC has CID Lock in most cases) ( 1 Year ago I flashed my XDA phone with an Original Qtek 8310 update - it worked fine, although missing Hardware like WIFI in XDA phone)

Thanks a lot your help ... I´d like to keep my Candybar 3G Smartphone :-)

CU Steve

I've had issues with this also and someone suggested I just upgrade my firmware at http://www.timtechs.com/unlocked-o2-xda-graphite-prd151.html but how do i know whether to se that version or the one you are suggesting?
