HTC TyTN / 8525 / JasJam (Hermes)
HELP - 8525 Dead After 1 Week
What do I do?
The phone definitely has issues with those kind of problems. I put mine back in the box for other issues, certainly not as severe as yours, but troublesome none the less. I intend to exchange mine for audio issues, performance glitches and syncing is nearly impossible.
It's my opinion that this phone is not ready for prime time yet and really needs some firmware updates before it will be smooth sailing. I may return my phone and wait 4 or 6 months after some bugs are worked ...
At this point, I think I'm going to get a Treo with the Palm OS. Win Mobile 5 is way too unstable.
Any feedback on that logic? Any other phones I should consider in this class of PDA phone?
If you need a PDA phone, the slightly older 8125 has been rock steady and reliable for me (make sure it has 2.25 firmware). The new Palm device coming out looks nice but lacks some new features that newer phones have. You might want to consider a Windows Smartphone as an option. I have a 2125 that works great and that new Blackjack looks promising as well and has 3G speeds...
