I spent two hours on Fujitsu-Siemens support web site but I could not find a way to report my problems with T830 device, only this forum. I hope this message will be read by appropriate technical staff.
So, here is my list:
Network mode (Auto/3G/2G) and WLAN power saving (Enable/Disable/Auto) settings are not retained across soft resets or even when switching off/on the device
Battery life is about 40 hours (looks like the “marketing” value is measured with Phone, Bluetooth and WLAN switched off and device in stand-by)
No VoIP (as stated at http://www.fujitsu-siemens.com/campaigns/pocket_loox_t/pocket_loox_t_series.html -
“It enables you also to make Voice over IP (VoIP) phone calls via WLAN/UMTS”
Sometimes I have to switch on and off WLAN for several times in Wireless Manager to get connected (two notebooks and a Nokia E70 phone have no problem connecting to the same Access Point)
Stylus is not firmly attached when inserted into device body - perhaps it’s too thin. Luckily there’s another one in the box
I found no way to call a number like *123# (so I cannot see my current phone bill)
Device crashes while receiving contacts via Bluetooth from my MacBook’s Address Book
I couldn’t find a way to switch off camera “shutter” sound
Skype (tested 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124) crash the device when trying to call a regular phone number. Calls to computers work fine.
My T830 has all official patches applied as of today, Feb. 13, 2007 (PhoneConfig Utility, PocketSuite Update 01 for Image 1.09, Pocket LOOX T810 / T830 OS Flash Update P22452-P919-V812).
The latest version of this list is available on my website at http://www.bradiceanu.net/wordpress/?p=40.
I can only hope that Fujitsu-Siemens will at least consider these annoyances and glitches.
All the best,
