Do all WM phones suck??
I have to start everyday with a soft reset, 30% plus calls take 2-4 tries to complete or another soft reset. I've been interupted so many @$#%#$^ times when I'm dialing a number and the phone has to tell me I have messages waiting or missed an appointment after which I have to start dialing again. I truely miss having voice recognition that works. It's always nice finding out 3 days to a week afterwards that someone left me a voice mail.
I don't run much of any 3rd party apps. My wife now uses my old i-730 without any apps and it still does the same things driving her totally nuts.
The voicemail and dropped/no calls I blame on Verizon's poor coverage ar...
i prefer palm or RIM over WM.
what it really breaks down to is this... microsoft makes windows.
journdad (dont rember exact model)
compaq (dont rember exact model)
windows mobile is buggy it really is but i have kept with it through all the years because all its problems are tolerable (on most devices the mpx220 is the exception)
but no matter how crapy it gets no one can deny how adaptable and useful a windows mobile phone is

Windows Mobile is buggy, it really is; but I have kept with it through all the years because all its problems are tolerable (on most devices, the MPX220 is the exception).

That's the truth. That, and people act like no other OS screws up. You have no idea how many Blackberry & Palm calls I get at work.
Blackberrys have been crazy stable for me. nearly Flawless.
I miss my old Palm PDA.
I will try a Smarter...smart phone asap. I would be tickled pink if it ran like a Blackberry
Oh come on...were talking about Microsoft here
We're or were?
Once more, do all WM phones suck or just these two? How's WM6 working?
I guess it depends on the phone... if you have a handset with a slow ass processor and little RAM that's running Windows Mobile, you're f*cked.
To save battery, download an application called LowLight.
When you access/run anything on Windows Mobile, that application/process usually doesn't close until you kill the task or exit the application. So make good use of your phone's task manager when you're not using an app and kill that app! If you don't have a task manager... get one damn-it.

I'm at work, unfortunately I can't provide any direct links. If you have an HTC device go to the forums on http://www.xda-devlopers.com and find your handset. From there you can see if anyone cooked up a ROM for your phone. Just follow the instructions for updating your phone. If your manufacturer isn't HTC, use google to find applicable sites for updating your OS.
Some phones have official software updates/patches that will update your phone to WM6.
Good luck, don't brick your phone. :c)
