thining of buying a used 6800 are there alot of problems?

I have read some mixed reviews on this ppc and I am wondering if its a risk purchasing a used 6800 for 125 cdn. I use to have a motorola Q and liked the Windows mobile.

If I go ahead with the purchase and it turns out to be buggy are there hacks that can improve the operation of this device or are the problems associated with this phone hardware.

Thanks

The 6800 is a good device. The only major drawback for me was it's lack of RAM. That being said, I used one for over a year and there are many hacks/upgrades you can do to optimize performance. It will blow your Moto Q out of the water.

Pretty much only problems is it gets very hot and a horiblle lack of RAM. But yes it for sure will blow your Q out of the water. PPC's are much more hackable than smartphones.

Another issue that comes up occasionally is a bright spot on the LCD caused possibly by overheating hardware. On my unit, which I bought used, there is a tiny smudge like white spot. It's not noticable unless the entire rest of the screen is white but for people who are obsessive over these kinds of things it can be an issue.

I used a 6800 for about a year and loved it. If it had more RAM I would still use it (I use an Omnia now). It has the best hard button configuration I have ever seen and the keyboard is a joy. In fact, I am giving my used 6800 to my dad.

Re: thining of buying a used 6800 are there alot of problems?

I love my 68 and have no issues with it what-so-ever. Its a great device and can do all kinds of things with it. I watch movies and listen to music. I can surf and remote access/control my PCs at home and vice versus. There are a ton of apps you can use for just about anything you wanna do. You cant overclock it but thats ok i guess. It could use more RAM to manage apps better but does fine as it is. IMO its a good solid device and overall I love mine.

Mine is too loud sometimes but then again I make my own ringtones and amplify them as well.

Always ask the seller about white spots, keyboard problems, the service provider (some models can't be connected to different providers) and the the physical condition. If there are alot of scratches and dings, then you know the device has had a rough life.
