Involuntary autocorrect in operation on mobile device. Apologies in advance.
Panacea: Bought one earlier this week for $299 - missed the boxing day specials doh! - and even for this price it is a fantastic phone. Got the OTA update to ICS via Wifi with no problems at all. Beats the pants off my old Defy, hands down.
I see Telecom has removed the Actrix 2 from their online store so I suspect all this low pricing for the phone is to run out stock as it is end of life?
A few things I have noted so far though...
Firstly, on the box it says you get a bunch of free EA games. I followed the instructions, but it appears they might not be available in NZ. Anyone encountered this?
Secondly, when I dial my voicemail and go to enter my PIN, the screen blanks out after I press the 3rd digit, making it impossible to complete the PIN entry, and causing my VM mailbox to lock. Have disabled the PIN now which gets around the problem, but doesn't actually solve the problem. It only seems to happen when entering a PIN, not with the initial dialling or in any other application. Odd. Anyone else seen this?
Interested to see if the above are a common trend with recently purchased phones (a batch problem) or just restricted to me.

Hi, here is the link to the EA games apk file->
arvis: Do you guys get any sluggishness when entering text? This guy from Computerworld reports:
It seems the problems are mainly with native apps and the user interface. Sending a text message, a relatively simple function on most phones, is infinitely harder because you?re waiting for the keystroke animation to catch up to the next letter you?ve typed.
