i have got a XDA 2 mini, and i found that my speaker phone doesnt work properly when my battery is less than 30%. Therefore I rang O2 for assistance, they were pretty good, helping me update rom etc except the waiting was long. After that the problem is still not fix, so I sent it in for repair.

The fault I had report was while using the O2 XDA II mini to call/receive
phone calls , echo was generate BADLY on the other end of the line. This
fault ONLY generate when 1: using battery (not pluged into usb cable OR
power plug) and battery is lower than 30% , 2 while using WIRED headset OR
SPEAKER phone (eg: press and hold green phone button) , 3: Using GSM 900
band , or GSM 900/ 1800 , but NOT GSM 1800. (I cannot test GSM 1900 , cos
it's not available in my australian network : OPTUS & Vodaphone )

they had tried to fix it a few times and even send me a new (faulty ---> sent back to fix, therefore it became refurbished unit... ) and the problem is still there.

I even recieved a email from the australian repair centre's manger saying that " As the echo
problem appears on the replacement supplied to you I believe it is just the
way the phone behaves and another repair will not be able to change the
performance of the handset. The only advise I can give is to adjust the
volume when on speaker phone to see if the echo deminishes."

nevertheless, adjusting volume doesnt help at all...

I just wonder do you guys got the same problem?
Or it's just my bad luck?

But my question was deleted by someone.... without any reason....
Am I offending the company O2 by saying the truth?

Oh, no, not offending anyone. The question is relevant. Is just that the first time you posted it three or four times!

The question remains. I haven't used a Xda II Mini, so let's just keep this open for anyone with experience.
