T-mobile told me that I can only use the Wifi to surf the web on the Dash if I get there hotspot internet data plan. Does anyone know how to make it so I can use the wifi free by using my personal wifi in my house or at work and not have to use the T-mobile hotspot?

Cant see my text

I just got my Dash a couple of days ago, and i noticed that i can see what people text to me but the message i send back does not show up. Am i missing something? is there some setting i can change? It gets annoying if you are trying to read a whole conversation but you only have one side.

Here's some verry COOL Tweaks (FREE)

I wanna help, here are a few cool tweaks for this Xcelent Phone

First you need the registry editor, onece you download it from here »

1. Copy the regeditSTG.exe to the root directory of your storage card using a DIRECT card reader/writer FROM YOUR PC. You CANNOT copy this file to your phone using the explore option from activesync. If you do not have a microSD reader/writer for your PC, you're out of luck, sorry.

Dash shutting off

Hi everyone,
I've been having a problem for the last few days. While using IE, the phone will just turn itself off without warning. Then after turning it back on, the battery level will decrease by one bar. This happened twice today. The battery had two bars, it shut off, I powered it on, then it had 1 bar. It shut off a second time, then after it came back on, it went down to low battery. Why is this happening and how do I prevent it? I charge the battery to full each morning, and why does using IE cause it to shut down?

Question for current DASH users

Hello, I am considering this phone as well as the WING and was wondering a few things. For Dash users:

1 does this phone work well with editing word and excel documents?

2 I plan on getting the data plan but not initially. Do my question is do you have to pay for the data plan in order to use WiFi?

3 When you use AIM or messenger services on the dash does it require data plan and does it charge per text msg? if so are there applications that would allow you to use messengers without deducting txt msgs but just uses data?

4 Does anyone know of a 3rd party application website?

thanks! Sorry im very picky about phones I use them for work and play!

wifi speed with a s621

I was just wondering if this is normal.
54 mbps tx rate

1 mbps rx rate.

I thought it should be 54 both ways. The S621
seems real slow to down load pages on the wifi

A Few Questions...

Hello, I plan on switching to T-mobile soon, and I'm looking at several phones. For those of you who have the Dash...

1. How is the feel of the keyboard?
2. Is it a phone that functions quickly, or does it lag?
3. Is the phone durable, or does it break after just one drop?

And lastly, what do you think of it overall... whould you go with anything different?

Thank you so much in advance. I can't wait to hear the responses.

Is the s621 still worth getting?

I am a huge HTC fan, and a casual phone user just bought the dash on T-Mo and I really like this phone!

I want to get an unbranded one and use it on AT&T, so I basically want to know if this phone is worth getting or not???

Its rather old... but it seems to do a lot and very easy to use!

I am currently using a Treo 750, so should I keep the 750 or what??
