Great little computer...Not the best phone

First I would like say that right after I bought this phone, I kept hearing from different people, some Bell employees, saying that this phone is awful, that "nobody likes it, it sucks, good luck), and after some searching on the web, I would say it's about 50/50.

First I would like say that right after I bought this phone, I kept hearing from different people, some Bell employees, saying that this phone is awful, that "nobody likes it, it sucks, good luck), and after some searching on the web, I would say it's about 50/50. I bought this phone, on the Bell Mobility network in Canada, 13 months ago, before the 3G version came out, and at first I was totally pumped. I upgraded from a Motorola E815 to this, so of course the email and internet capabilities were phenomenal compared to the E815, not to mention the touch screen is fantastic. I love being able to surf the internet and receive email (Yahoo) without a data package, just "unlimited mobile browsing" which is included in the Fun 15 bundle through Bell Mobility. I love the Windows Mobile platform... there are so many programs you can download and add to the phone, it's not even funny (e.i. games, security, keyboards, "Today Screen" software...) The only real problem I've had, when I first bought it, was: The phone would answer and dial numbers on its own, in my pocket or even in the belt holster... my wife actually sat and listened to a 10 min. conversation about some sports show I had watched the day before (good thing it was just sports). I solved this problem by downloading the S2U2 software so now there is a slide-to-lock function. The battery is OK, I mean if I don't use the phone too much it will last two or three days, but if you make alot of calls or do a fair bit of surfing you'll end up throwing it on the charger every night or so (Keep in mind too, I only turn the phone off maybe once a month, otherwise it is always on 24/7). Now that the novelty has sort of worn off and I have started to notice some of the little quirks, I find that the call quality isn't the best... for the most part it's OK, but I find that compared to the phones that my friends have I tend to have the least amount of signal bars and when we are all at one or no bars, this phone cuts in and out the worst... and we are all on the same network. I actually picked up an old Nokia 2125i for $20, put it on prepaid (same network) and it gets calls where nobody else does...but then again it is JUST A PHONE... no bells or whistles at all. I use this phone for camping...just in case. Also, the camera is starting to "glitch" every once in a while, meaning it will turn each picture into a black and white pic but only after you take the photo and it does it in sections of the picture one at a time. I also tried to take a video with it and the screen turned into a multi-coloured version of a snowy television screen while making a horrible screeching sound... I had to soft reset the phone to make it stop. Now I'm not too concerned about the camera because I have a digital camera (with a flash), it was just nice to take a pic of something spurr of the moment. Overall the phone is good, I find that you get lucky with any electronics these days, some are great, some not so much, and I think that applies to this phone. Some people get good ones some don't. It would be nice if it came with a slide out QWERTY like the 6800. I just wonder if the reception and call quality are improved on the 3G version. Less

Don't buy this phone even if your life depended on it!

This phone has been the worst experience ever. I'm on my 2nd version of the phone and I still have hardware problems. If you want a phone that will literally shut off during a call... (not drop the call... actually power down) or if you want a phone that will hum like it's about to self destruct then...More
This phone has been the worst experience ever. I'm on my 2nd version of the phone and I still have hardware problems. If you want a phone that will literally shut off during a call... (not drop the call... actually power down) or if you want a phone that will hum like it's about to self destruct then by all means... go ahead but if not then stay clear. The web sucks, the touch features suck, the only decent feature is the weather and that's only if you can locate the city you live in if it's not "Unable to receive data." Seriously; worst purchase ever. Less

I have had this phone for just over a year... like others on this review, it freezes and needs a reset. Calls are dropped and a reset is needed to work the phone. Often the touch screen is unresponsive needing to be turned off or reset to work again. When dialing a phone # and the call button is pressed (either on the touch screen or the actual button) an entirely different phone number gets dialed and called - this has happened to me consistently and I have to try to dial my number up to 5 times before the phone actually dials the # I asked it to ask for. Often the phone rings once and goes to voicemail so calls are missed frequently Can no longer us the green and red buttons to start and end calls, I must use the touch screen & if unresponsive then a reset is needed When in the middle of a call, my ear activates the Comm Manager and activates the airplane mode and cuts off my call..

Ive had my htc for a little under a year now, and it has given me nothing but problems. a) it freezes ALL the time, and then you have tor restart it, which takes FOREVER due to windows mobile. b) it lags ALOT so when i hit reply to a text msg it'll send the msg because it gets the signal to late. c) will not allow me to open sms after ive sent a text msg , which again leads me to restart the phone. d) when you make a call that requries you to press 1 to continue etc, it takes forever to get the keyboard on screen and they keyboard is really slow as well.. there's just so much more i could say about this phone, unforunately they wouldnt be good things. i think the worst thing about this phone is the horrible horrible HORRIBLE reception quality and call quality that you get no matter where you are, the speaker volume , also, is completely terrible. overal, i would seriously advise against getting this phone, which is what i told my best friend however he didnt listen and went and got an htc diamond and now he's had to replace is 5 times and he got it in september. htc overall is garbage. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME. Less

I've had this phone for a little under 11 months and it may possibly be the worst phone I have ever had in my life! I think my razor is more capable than the touch. The keyboard is extremely slow and difficult to use... my calls always get cut off and the worst part is that the phone randomly freezes on me!!!!! I honestly hate this phone with a passion.. unfortunately I am on a contract for another 2 years. When time comes and I have another phone, I will destroy the touch for making my social life miserable Less

I had to return it once and got a new one, and the same problems with the new one. the phone shuts down whil i am in mid conversation, which i then have to take out the battery and put it back in. the phone freezes on calls, it says the call is still going, however there is no connection, and you cant hang up or anything. When using the text message mode, the words delete that i type out etc. It is the worst phone ever. Less
