Sorry Columbo, I did not mean to offend you!
When I sometimes say "we" it's surely because I take into account the comments of people here+people on the French TG01 forum + people on the FpseCE forum using the TG01.
Sorry for this, I'll say "I" from now, or explain more precisly what communitty I'm talking about.
All I wanted to say is that some TG01 work really well, some don't, some work only after a few weeks fixing the bugs.
But for me i'm a bit pissed off when I see people saying the TG01 (and all of them) are bad ans shitty because they and many others have problems.
I swear some people (french forum + FpseCE forum) never had a single problem with their TG01 and never had to do a single hard reset.
As you say, I'm not "happy to accept bugs" or to see my TG01 "reseting while showing photos to friends", I just repeat it is something that doesn't happen anymore on my own TG01 since mid-July
I agree: you should maybe verify with your provider that this one is not just giving you one of the same stock.
What is sad is that so far you've mainly seen all the bad aspects and bugs of the TG01, it's not really fair since some others never experience them (Jclaude, on the french forum, never had a single reboot or SD corruption, not a single hard reset to do, that's the luckiest on this forum, especially since he has been installing lots of applications!)
Hope you'll get to the end of these difficulties soon!
And sorry again, I sometimes forget the "french writting style" may seem offensive when it's not meant to be so lol
Thanks i900french-addict. I guess my english writing style was also a bit negative, so I too am sorry if I came across as offending. As you know, I've had a bad experience with successive TG01s, and I was feeling very frustrated when I wrote, which means I might have taken things more personally than I ought to have taken them.
I have calmed down since then and so has my TG01. The bugs are still there, but I haven't yet had any major card errors and I've been lucky enough to avoid random reboots for a little while. I don't know if it is my imagination, but since I've been avoiding using the built in SMS app (I use Vito SMS Chat), I haven't experienced reboots. Might be a coincidence, but it's enought to keep me relatively happy for now.
I'm sorry if I seemed to be saying that the TG01 is all negative. It is very close to being one of the best WM phones I've had in terms of its slim design and speed. Without the silly Toshiba interface, it is actually very fast with virtually no lag. That's why it is even more sad when suddenly it goes really slow for no apparent reason. It is as if the good points of the phone make the bad points stand out even more.
One thing that helps is the leaked WM 6.5 update from Orange mentioned elsewhere on this forum. It seems to have solved most of the volume problems and it now runs fairly smoothly. IE6 looks much nicer, but is very unstable when using Flash and somehow not as smooth as in 6.1. I'm hoping that Orange's official update on 12th October will not be the same build. Battery life seems a little bit worse with this update, but I will see if there is anything I can do to make it better. After all, I've only has this for a few hours! Apart from that, I am at least now no longer embarrased to show it to my iPhone owning friends. (Yes I know it's not an iPhone, but I want that to be a good thing!) With Kinoma Play, Opera 9.7, Fingerkeyboard and SPB Mobile Shell 3.5 installed, it a nearly perfect device.
It would be interesting to hear from any others who tried the update.
