MyTouch Fender overheats

I purchased my Fender in May 2010. I'm now on my 4th phone replacement, 2nd SIM card, and 3rd battery. My phone overheats to 106 degrees. I know this because the phone actually tells you the temperature in the battery app. The wall charger is in transit from my cell plan carrier as it, too, overheats. I would not recommend this phone.

Can someone give more information on myTouch 1.2?

It seems that the original myTouch is all that is discussed in the forums... trying to figure out whether to get this or Cliq XT because I need a headphone jack and my rooted G1 (as awesome as it is) is no longer cuttin' the mustard. Also, can anyone give an idea of the Battery life in comparison to G1?

Thanks in advance guys. Smile

T-mobile - my touch

I tried the "My Touch" phone from T-Mobile for about 3 weeks - had to return it for good after the second one - The software wouldn't delete my e-mail from the trash file bin - also - it couldn't delete multiple e-mail files - you had to delete the files one at a time ! (what a major pain !) - Otherwise I loved that phone ! Wish I could have kept it ! Thanks to T-Mobile's customer service, they took it back with a full refund, no questions !!! Any update fixes from HTC in the works out there that anyone knows about ???

My two week review

Smallest cell phone I've ever owned and also the lightest.
Some very nice applications.
Very bright display.
Does not waste battery power by lighting up the screen when you get a text.
Voice browsing with Google.
Virtual keyboard is good for one thumb texting but takes some getting used to.

Comes with a "sack" not a holder.
Instructions are on the thin side. It took me the better part of 5 minutes to open the back, for fear of breaking the just purchased phone.
Highly touted "Sherpa" has been experiencing connection issues over the past week or so.
Android market is not as broad as iPhones yet.
Rated as one of the highest radiation emitting phones.
Virtual keyboard is slow when switching orientation
Unlock pattern...

Voice Text

Does anyone use voice texting with this phone? If so how? Application download?

Sep 7, 2009, 9:02 PM


I am thinking about purchasing this phone and I was wondering if updates and or patches to the OS and other applications can be downloaded like the Blackberry Storm. If so, are there are any charge for the updates. Thanks in advance for your help and patience.

Will this phone work on high speed in European countries??

I've called TMo 3 times and get different answers each time. Once I was even told that countries like Italy don't have any 3g/high speed....only GPRS....go figure.

If someone can chime in with info that would be great.

Problems with ringtones

I would like to know if anyone else has had this problem. I have a different ringer for each contact but sometimes when that contacts call me the phone will default back to the default ringer that I have set. Even thought that is not the ringer set for that contact calling. The number is programed exactly like when that person calls. I was having the same issues with my g1. All of the ringer tones are ones that came with the phone. I did download an app called ringer extended so that I could use my music as ringertones. So maybe that is the problem. I did that so I would not have to manual save each song into my ringtones. Please help.

Copy & Paste or moving the cursor

Ok so I'm coming from an iPhone. Starting to hate the crazy-control Apple's doing along with AT&T customer service. So I figure to try and give the mytouch a it so far.

Have a few questions though, if anyone can chime in that would be great:

1) how do you do copy & paste if you're wanting to copy only a part of an email?

2) if you start typing something (text or email) and realize you need to go back and change a typo, how do you move the cursor to the precise area you need to correct?

I wish reviewers would....


And stop comparing stupid things like faceplates and number of contacts, as if that is somehow a pro or con. Why not compare important things, like reception and the ability to install 3rd party JAVA applications, two things the iPhone fails MISERABLY at. Probably because realistically, that would make the iPhone fail hard against almost every WCDMA phone on the market. How inconvenient. Let's face it: the iPhone was a good idea for an mp3 player but it fails terribly as a phone. It's nice to know that after 2 years, it finally has MMS, video messaging and copy/paste, though. It's good to see Apple has finally included features even Motorola had on all their phones over 4 years a...

Thinking Of Getting One

Currently with the iPhone 3G, thinking of going and getting one on the 5th. I have a G1 collecting dust; how is the keyboard and the usability? I have the keyboard as I upgraded the G1 to Android 1.5 before I deactivated it back in June, and it's not too bad. Thoughts?

So i've installed the Sherpa application on my MyTouch and really didn't find it as impressive as it was made it out to be during pre-launch, anyone else feel the same way?
