Review: T-Mobile MDA
May 3, 2006, 9:19 AM by Eric Lin
In-depth review of T-Mobile's feature-packed MDA Windows Mobile PDA phone, AKA the HTC Wizard. With Video Tour.
T-Mobile could have been satisfied just selling the MDA to the road warriors who spend more time on the road than in the office. The MDA has just about every feature those users need... and more, in a package smaller than past Pocket PC phones and even smaller than competitors like the Sidekick II. However, T-Mobile took care to include extra software and interface flourishes designed to make the MDA easier for the average person to use.
Despite T-Mobile's best efforts, you'll still have to deal with the occasional crash or hidden functions that are common to all Windows Mobile devices, but for day-to-day use, a little courage is all it takes to get the MDA working.

Hard case and Stylus for MDA
Most people who have used a MDA would agree that the stylus isn't the best. Does anyone knows a different stylus that I can use with the MDA which will still fit in the slot on the phone ? I am also looking for a hard case for my MDA. Best would be a hard case with stylus slot so that I can buy better stylus and put it in the slot on the hard case. anything like this exists ?
Verdict? MDA, 8125, or just wait for the 8525?
Which phone should i get?
Just so you know..the backlight IS adjustable
If you're a power user of Outlook and have all your contacts categorized and are using s...
Please help, I'm lonely and scared.
Question on: AIM & Internet Plan on the MDA
Can anybody tell me if the MDA can use AOL Instant Messenger easily and what you guys pay for your internet plan for this phone?
Id really appreciate it,
Review in perspective
The reality is that a convergence device like this (or the Palm Treo 700, or the various Samsung and Siemens models prior, or even a Blackberry to some lesser degree) is really not d...
The 8125 is great, don't get me wrong. I wo...
Replacement for Treo 650?
Granted my 650 reboots itself randomly, it barely syncs email, Blazer is practically worthless and when i answer call waiting, i usually (a) can't be heard by the incomming caller or (b) cant retrieve my original call.
I had hoped it would be great for email (blackberry would be better) that it would work for messaging and aim (any qwerty device would suffice for these features) and i had hoped I would be able to use the bluetooth to establish an internet EDGE c...
Just so you know, there is a zoom indicator in the camera function
I hate/love my MDA.
Not quite. You can set the default ringtone in the system settings, as well.
BTW, PPC Profiles Pro is a free app that lets you set profiles, including ringtones, alerts, BT & flight settings, etc. Very easy to use. Find it here at http://www.modaco.com/PPCProfiles-Pro-f151.ht ml

Few bugs I have noticed....
Just so you know...the time can be displayed in the title bar of most applications...
With newer imate software loaded on my MDA, I have easier Bluetooth transfers, indicators for caps/symbol when using the QWERTY keyboard, a Java Virtual Machine, no more random radio system crashes, and more goodness. My wife continues to have problems where her radio will randomly crash, either giving the appearance that it is working as normal or spontaneously turning "Airplane mode" on. She's exp...
