There is a major O/S upgrade due soon (I've heard it refered to as Windows 6.1 but not sure if that's correct) - but it won't be until about start of November and we just can't be bothered waiting until then for something that might or might not fix things... Originally heard 6-8 weeks at start of June and that deadline had been and gone... The previous Firmware/ROM upgrade around March-May made things worse instead of better and its been downhill from there with substandard hardware... So enough is enough - wouldn't you think persevering for 4 months and going through 4 handsets per person in the process (plus the temp ones while the faulties went back to be assessed and then a new handset sent out) was saintly patience?

Mycenius: I have a 4GB Micro-SD Card and it doesn't seem to recognise the available memory on it - BUT on the site link above it only lists 2GB for the external card capacity - have they knee-capped it to only recognise cards up to 2GB...?

 

Answered my own question - they did! Good Grief!! Undecided

Hey I would have done the same thing, its totally unacceptable.  My point was that if Telecom had been proactive in getting the latest Rom to the phone - which was released a while ago them some of these problems could have been solved.  Instead they frustrate their customers and most likily lose a few along the way.

Would be interesting to hear how you go with the samsung.

Zocster - you talking hardware (processor/memory) & O/S specs, or the standard device ones at Samsung?

 

Actually I just noticed something - I have a 4GB Micro-SD Card and it doesn't seem to recognise the available memory on it - BUT on the site link above it only lists 2GB for the external card capacity - have they knee-capped it to only recognise cards up to 2GB...?

 

 



eek it's a smartphone, ok this could possibly work. i agree with the few posts above me, a business should not need to upgrade themselves to 6.1 version of windows mobile pro. I would not know how I can live with my jam without the 6.1 upgrades available on XDA, it is fast, it is snappy, and honestly I am happy to hold off upgrading my phone!

Perfect run with i325 until a few days ago, now its randomly switching phone radio off (even with phone battery nearly fully charged), and occaisonally just being slow.

Just a rumour, this has been put to telecom & telegistics by telecom dealers and there has been an emphatic no, there is no intention of bringing out an upgrade for the current range of PDA's like they did for the Harrier and Apache. THe focus is on WCDMA 850 and the new range

I have been running an upgraded OKTA Touch (Sprint based ROM with 6.1) and have had no trouble, with one exception.  The dreaded Clucter Error.  It was sent to telegistics who sent it back as "abused" and uneconomic to repair.

Am I correct in believing the Cluster Error is a hardware fault?

If so the software shouldn't make any different to a replacement.

Does any one have more infor on the Cluster Error.

Cheers

Try searching around the xda-developers site for damaged extended ROM ... for the vogue

or raise your concerns in the appropriate forum on ppcgeeks which I believe where you would have gotten your sprint based ROM.

Okay, okay, so the Okta Touch is a dog in disguise.

My Okta Agent was the same, but without the disguise.

Then I had to return the Okta Boss, as it howled at the recent full moon.

Like, when will we ever learn....................Okta is a dud brand that the rest of the world has rejected by a different name.

Climbing off my soapbox.
