Touch Calibration was little difficult.
Touch is still sticky thanks to the resistive display.[Little consolation, I knew this when I bought it]
If you are feeling happy/wondering that there are no messages[Or frequent forwards] Thank this mobile.
Lousy User Interface, Deep Steep learning curve.
Even had trouble figuring out, how to pick the call. You have to drag the Green/Red Display to the other end rather than just touch the button. One way It helps to show off my ring tone as I cannot quickly pick the call.
Default Messaging client was awkward and did not let me forward a message to more than ten people at a time.Stores the messages as conversations as in Gmail.[Which i don't like even in Gmail]
Replaced the default client with Handcent SMS, which has a cool UI. For some strange reasons started showing the contacts twice. Manually deleted the dual entries and only one entry would show up in the messaging window. Whereas more than few contacts did not show up while making or receiving calls.
After two days, All of a sudden the music player stopped playing music whereas video player was good. Replacing the music player did not help. Deletion of all songs and recopying helped.
Installed Opera, rather than the regular browser, which i dont use to browse. I still use my iTouch for quick browsing.
In the beginning battery was getting drained up like anything and needed frequent recharge like every few hours. Thanks to USB charger. Luckily one fine day, forgot the USB connector and drained it completely and subsequent recharge later, now it holds for more than a day. Still not sure is it because of the complete drain or the Advanced Task Killer application using which I kill applications every now and then which is helping me with long battery life.
Say, you open a browser, then a sticky notes , then play sudoku then listen music while you message, All applications would still be running consuming your battery. When you check what is consuming your battery and add up the percentages it would be 101% No, I am not kidding.
If you ask me, how did I install all the applications, remember it supports wi-fi. I was trying to connect to wi-fi and it would say acquiring IP address and was acquiring it forever. Queried the google and found lots of forums dedicated to wi-fi issue on the 2.1 Eclair and was blaming myself for overlooking this. Again thanks to my ever patient friend who corrected me a day later, I was trying to connect to wi-fi with wrong credentials. An application should spit at me telling I am giving wrong credentials right at the beginning rather than going ahead and trying to acquire the IP. [oh i believed my friend only after iTouch spat at me for the wrong password]
Also had(ving) a tough time in buying accessories like scratch pad and mobile cover. Pain of a first generation user.
Is there anything that i like in this mobile?I loved the security of a pattern to unlock the mobile rather than a PIN number or a button. [Of course after a struggle in setting and still struggling now and then to unlock it when i need it the most]
The most beneficial use is, I no more carry my iTouch and its charger, and the pen drive to office.
Still why am i having this phone? I have started thinking this to be my lucky charm as it had brought some most awaited good news(two in fact) the day after i bought the phone.
Still this saga is not over....
