AT&T 3125 - best kept secret in smartphones!

from Amazon
I searched for a smaller PDA-type phone so I can have functionality, but not have a target for theft on my belt.

I searched for a smaller PDA-type phone so I can have functionality, but not have a target for theft on my belt. Now, what was I looking for? 1) A phone that will sync with Outlook. 2) A phone that won't be really heavy or attract a lot of attention. 3) A phone that would excel as a PHONE and have decent PDA functionality. So, enter in the AT&T 3125. What's so special about it? The Good: 1) Easy to use as a phone. Easy to see and use the buttons in the dark while driving! (Try that with a QWERTY keyboard!) 2) Bright, clear, crisp display. 3) It's suprisingly easy to connect this phone to your laptop and use it as a wireless modem. (Just find the "Accessories" folder and you'll find "Internet Sharing". Connect via bluetooth or USB and you're ready to go! Of course, make sure you have an unlimited data plan or it'll cost you a fortune.) 4) It syncs PERFECTLY with Windows Mobility Center with Vista. (It's not quite so easy for BlackJack users.) Therefore, it's simple to install additional applications. 5) Works quite well syncing with ExchangeServer, so you can keep current on the go. (Again, have an unlimited data plan!) 6) VoiceNotes - what an ingenious application! I frequently get good ideas while driving or other times when I don't have a pen to write down ideas. I can just "record a memo" to replay back to myself to recapture that idea. The Bad: 1) Entering data into the device. It's okay when typing in an appointment, but typing out an email or a document would be quite slow. I wouldn't use this phone in that way. There are better smartphones for entering in data. 2) Not a lot of applications available (compared to Palm). It's not good for reading ebooks (nor are there many available for this format). This is perhaps a good thing for me. It keeps me focused on the basics the phone does and not try any elaborate software packages. Saves money too! 3) ClearVue applications - not good. I don't use this phone to view attachments in emails. That can wait until I get back to the office. If you're not that fortunate, then you might want to invest in a "documents to go" program for your phone - or consider a different smartphone. 4) MP3 buttons on top - sometimes it can turn on without you intending to turn it on. I have my phone activate a "button lock", so it eliminates this problem. The Ugly: 1) The microSD card is badly placed (yes we know this). However, should it somehow become loose while it's behind your SIM card, it can have a bad affect on the quality of your calls. I currently do NOT use the microSD card. If you do, make sure it's FIRMLY placed where it should be so it doesn't interrupt your call quality. 2) If you grip your phone in the wrong way, it's possible that you'll slide your battery cover off, and the phone will turn off. It takes a good minute or two for it to boot back up again. 3) Be careful cleaning it. If you clean any part of the large hinge, and it stays wet, it can affect your phone display. It'll turn white with some "busy vertical lines". Keep in mind that once it dries, it'll work just as it did before. If you just want to keep on top of things, this phone ROCKS! My favorite applications: Facade 1.4 to customize my display; Oxios ToDo List (helps with task list); SmartphoneNotes syncs Outlook Notes (not wirelessly). I hope you enjoyed my balanced review of AT&T 3125. It's been my favorite phone ever. Less

Hi, I bought this phone 6 months back and I feel this phone is ok. The pros are excellent battery backup, good signal reception, nice mp3 capabilities. The cons are some times it works crazy(few hang offs), it restarts again(well I feel it is rare), the internal memory is too little and when the memory is filled, it gave me a warning to "Clear Storage", when I did that it even cleared all my contacts and I lost so many contacts. I feel this is ridiculous. I think the speaker quality needs to be improved much better(need more sound), the micro memory card slot need to be given outside, now it is behind the sim card and also removing this card is too scary...instructions are very bad..Overall I would say is average....

I hate this phone. I stupidly upgraded to this annoying phone from my razr, which I loved. My main source of irritation about the 3125 is that the keypad light goes out too fast and there's no option to change it. Same for the cool blue clock on the outside of the phone. It drops calls ALL the time (my razr almost never did). Reception is spotty. It's a 5 keystroke process to turn on bluetooth on the phone, then you have pair up with the headset - a 2-step process - it's a royal pain. Syncing it with my pc was impossible. I gave up on that. The battery life is short and takes forever to charge. The font on the main screen is difficult to read because it's too small. The interface is dull and unimpressive. You can only set one alarm time. Internet is excrutiatingly slow. I haven't bothered with the mp3 player because I have an ipod. The few good things: Solitaire game is kinda fun (but tiny). The camera's decent. The phone is well-made, solid and sturdy. The keypad keys are larger than most, so you almost never hit the wrong #'s. But none of this is enough to justify the price of this pda flip phone. I've had cell phones since 1994. Lots of them and all different kinds and brands. I have to say that this is one of the most inconvenient phones I've ever had and I can't wait to get rid of it. Maybe I'll run it over with my car... or smash it with a rock. Less

Great Phone

I wasn't sure if I was going to like this phone and as I learned how to use it, I LOVE this phone. I can go on the internet to check my e-mail, it's great! :) Very compact phone, people ask me if it's a razr. They are very surprised it's not. Love the MP3 player on it too.

Upgraded from Audiovox 5600 - love the 3125!

Some history: I have owned a cell phone from the days of the Motorola "brick" to the Motorola flip phone to the first Nokia candy bar phone with a Palm Pilot to the Audiovox 5600 which integrated my Palm functionality and a phone into one device. By far, the Nokia was the best phone. I had reception everywhere - even where noone else's phone worked, but I had my Outlook contact on my Palm. I wanted one device so I got the 5600. It synced great, but reception was poor. I couldn't use it from my home or work. I also missed the protection of a flip phone. Now I have the 3125 for about 2 months. Reception is great. I use it at home, work and everywhere there is coverage (I hike a lot.) Syncing is great and it is a flip phone so I can toss it in my pocket without calling some random number. I wanted a device that works as a phone first and then as a PDA. The 3125 does both well. It is a basic mobile computer for simple tasks. With a bluetooth keyboard you could do a lot. Pros: Reception almost as good as my analog Nokia of 10 years ago. Clear bright display - easy to read Easy to hear and to be heard. Speaker phone works well. Nice big tactile keys that automatically light up when needed. Much improved navigation keys (left, right, up, down, enter) Bluetooth with a Plantronics earpiece has good range and audio works well for the listener and talker. Battery life is better than the 5600. Not as good as the Nokia or Palm which would easily last a week. Color displays suck lots of power. Easy menu navigation - hint: you can hit the 1-9 keys to navigate the 9 icons. Voice recognition works once trained (bluetooth and phone). My old applications from 5600 work. Bought a 3rd party case that works well ($7) 4 band phone works in all countries using GSM. I used mine in China with a China Mobile SIM. hint: call Cingular and they will unlock your phone for free! Cons: Proprietary connector - can't use std headphones. Themes supplied have too much junk. My biggest beef with the themes were the large icons and space taken by "advertizements" like MSN or Cingular. To solve the themes issue, I edited the xml files. You can also buy programs to modify the themes. Had to buy SmartNotes program to sync with Outlook Notes. MicroSD card is under the SIM card. Cingular staff and instruction manual don't tell you much. I had to figure out a lot on my own. No on-phone help - my old Nokia had menu help 10 years ago. Notes: I am a PC user (not a Microsoft fan, but surprisingly like windows mobile). I use Outlook for contacts, calendar, email, and notes. I sync my phone with all of these. Less

Pro: Sleek, stylish Con: very fragile, and easy to break This is the 3rd Cingular 3125 I have and I have had the SAME problem with all of them. After a week or so, the hinges on the flip phone tend to loosen up causing horrible squeaky noises when I try to call. Then all-of-a-sudden, the ringer, the speaker, and the alarm stops to work. I have NEVER dropped the phone. I take very good care of it, and yet it seems to die very easily. I had the Audiovox SMT 5600 (the older version of the Cingular 3125) before this phone and LOVED it. It is so much easier to work with, and I hate the fact that they took off the "Flight Mode" on this new phone. I wish I had my SMT 5600 back!!! Less
