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. 😢 😢 😢
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?
is the My Touch "easier" on the battery than the G1? i found an extended battery and door for my wifes G1 on ebay i am getting a MT off Ebay but the extd batt and door for the MT is UGLY thanks for any help
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 ??? Thanks, RC
Pros: 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.
Cons: 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... (continues)
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.
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.
over in the "Review: T-Mobile myTouch 3G" discussion:
Few things wrong
First the G1 has a 3.1 megapixel camera just like the myTouch.
Second there are serveral Facebook apps in the market, I prefer Babbler myself. There will be an official facebook app being release in the next week or so.(don't blame google on that one facebook was being lame about developing one for android)
STOP COMPARING EVERY TOUCHSCREEN PHONE TO THE IPHONE!
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... (continues)
