    I saw on some other forum that the after sale service for Dopod sucks big time. Looks like ther don't have parts support from their Taiwan supplier. Any truth in that?
    does it have WiFi?

    take advantage of the free (3 years) wireless connection
    then you can have internet access during the weekends as well

    Yeah that's why I'm thinking of getting a PDA phone ( my phone is going bonkers and I'm thinking of getting a pda anyway ), but for the free wireless connection, I think in residental ares like Hougang it is going to be a problem. Now sometimes can't even get strong signal from starhub and m1 that why I'm thinking of getting the M1 wireless connection. For $38 /- I get 1.8MB of downloan speed and unlimited access, free connection device and only have to commit for 6 mths. It's working on the GSM system and so far those on the normal wireless package have no complain.

    That's why need advice from gurus like YYK to help me

    hahah there's some truth in everything just how much is it. i haven't been to the dopod service centre cos nothing spoilt yet. *touchwood* I've used O2 XDA previously and I say their after sales support sucks big time as well. basically the service sector in sg sux big time so i guess it applies for all the brands.

    i think 818 only have 1 version.. the 818pro.. i just lazy to type the word 'pro'.

    actually have to let you know in advance something about PDA phones, the input is via touch screen. The 818pro has a touchscreen 'keypad' so 1 hand operation is still possible, but for the other PDA phones without a keyboard, you have to enter text by writing on the screen like a pda.. 1 hand operation is quite impossible.

    For the M1 wireless, you need special phones that are HSPDA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access) or commonly called 3.5G ready and the 818pro don't come with this feature. Although it is based on GSM network, you need special phones to access this feature.

    yeah, the speed is also much slower, I just need to check my emails sometimes when I'm out of the office.

    no lah. HTC used to R&D and manufacture the phones for O2 who just stamp their names on it.. (OEM) then later on HTC went by the back door and came out with their own brand as dopod. Only the O2 atom onwards was developed by O2

    Read more about the shortage of parts here
    The equivalent of o2 screw up
    You think HP is good?

    At the end of the day, the equipment is just the equipment. Like cameras, if you know the limitations, you can get the most out of it. Else it'll be like the regular posts about N-sux, C-sux, F-up and O-m-g also have..
