This is kind of a warning/ b*tch session about the crappy TX95

I've had mine replaced twice and repaired 3 times in the 14 months i've had it. regularly it says it has full reception but receives no calls or texts, turn if off then on just to find out i've got a days worth of texts backed up and a number of voice mails.
also the buttons seem of pretty crap quality 0 key takes about 3 months to give up, menu button is just as bad.

had major battery life issues to start with but a firmware update seemed to improve that, but beware of silent mode the bright flashing leds can kill the battery in about 3 hours. seems crazy i know. Pity i had to lose around $150 worth of games and ringtones i'd downloaded.

Text messages fail to send about every 5th try for no reason at all. but will then work fine for a week then start failing for a couple of days.

Must say screen is large bright and clear(main reason i brought it) but really wish i'd kept my nokia 6330, may not have had a camera but atleast the bloody thing worked.

anyone else had issues with there hyundai tx 95? should i try replacing it again or just throw it off a tall building and buy a new one?

This is the first i have heard of these issues with the TX95c. Its usually the 115c that people moan about.

If you are having continuing problems, see the retailer you bought it from, though i suspect that at 14 months the warranty is now expired (and the original purchase date applies to the warranty, even when products are replaced).

If it was me, I would save the stress and just buy a new phone - even if I was in the right, I just dont need the hassle over what amounts to a $200 phone.

The tx95c is one of the most reliable photomessaging phones on Telecoms network imho.
