Hi guys, I live in FL and got an imate sp2 about 2 weeks ago off ebay. So far it's been a nice experience, this being my first smartphone. I have had nokias, SE's, (loooove the p800) and well, I thought a windows phone would be nice
anyway, I'm with AT&T (or cingular, or whatever they are now) and the service here is not half bad, it has its rough spots, as all providers do I guess. I have tried Tmobile, sprint, etc, so I can really say that there's no perfect provider, there's always issues and no one is ever really happy, but I can't complain.
anyway, the phone I have has some quirks, like not accepting large files through bluetooth, they simply won't show up after phone says that files have been saved. I have no trouble transferring those through active sync though.
also, I still cannot use MMS, I have read and tried all the settings found on the repository, but no success. The only thing I'm kinda fearing now is that since AT&T and cingular merged, AT&T could start using the 850 band, in which case I would have to swtich to t-mobile since this phone doesn't support that band.
also, one thing I have noticed is that the phone will drain the battery far less quickly when in "flight mode". I switched it to that mode just because since I don't receive signal inside the building where I work, I thought I would try it, and lo and behold, the battery discharged at a much slower rate, and that night I even played games like crazy (so much for working, huh? 8) )
So that's my "review" of the phone. so far, it does what it's supposed to do, keeps me entertained with the media player and the games, and it's a nice piece of hardware, solid, well built. It's not too heavy and fits nicely. A thumbs up, and I'm looking forward to more things to come for this platform.
