Nice, but Disapointing for the money


Mar 11, 2006, 5:58 PM

After less than a week of use, I had to return the phone. I loved it, but couldn't live with it's shortcomings. A phone in this class without voice dialing is DISAPOINTING. The cumbersome interaction between phone functions of answering/placing a call when using a bluetooth headset is also disapointing.


Stunning Design and very good to look at. I loved it!
Stunning Display
Great PC software, although no sync
Great call quality.
Excellent phonebook functions allowing multiple numbers to be stored per contact.


Poor OEM choice of ringers! I hate music as ringtones!

Poor Bluetooth Interaction

No Voice Dialing

DIFFICULT if not impossible to download mp3 and assign ringtones from the PC. It is using DRM ...

I've had my T809 for a few months now and I agree with a lot of what you're saying. The battery life leaves something to be desired and you couldn't be more right about the ringtones.

However, saying it's disappointing for the money is a little misleading. I know of many indirect dealers that are selling the T809 for free after only a $50.00 mail-in-rebate. How many other megapixel mp3 playing phones can you find for such a price?
