My friend hates his TP cuz of these issues and blames me 4 selling him on HTC.

My friend hates his Sprint Touch Pro and blames me 4 selling him on HTC.

If anyone can offer any help or fixes, I would greatly appreciate it.
I am going to e-mail him a link to this thread.

Thank you.


The following in quotes is the e-mail he sent me.
Quote:
Here's the low down on my HTC Touch Prop Experience thus far and why I will
sell this turd on ebay...

Cant type first and last name into messaging "to" field (once you hit the
space bar for the last name it selects the first 'josh' in your phone book,
etc.)

Cant search by company name in the address list (I need to look up account
in my phone all the time by company name)

Some names do not appear in contact list search at all but I know they are
there and can get to them manually

Cant search first and last name in contact list (must type one or the other)

GPS won't automatically drive to calendar appointment when the address is in
the appointment or give the option to drive to the appointment

GPS won't give you the option to drive to an address in your address book

GPS freezes up and stops navigating when you turn off the screen (to save
the battery). Won't start again until you close the app and restart.

Several times the phone has frozen up and the touch screen would not
respond...cant get into messages, can't get into contact list.

Auto backup fails every night (third party app but the best one on the
market)

every day the phone freezes up in my contact list...multiple times every
single day. I have over 1700 contacts....I have reset my phone at least 5
times already today.

using three fully charged new batteries a day...I am on my third battery
today as of 5pm and yes I bought three freaking batteries

T9 text input randomly turns itself on and I have to manually turn it back
to ABC input

Facebook and twitter apps suck to the point of being unusable (Facebook app
is the brand new one from Microsoft's upcoming windows mobile 6.5 OS)

Have you referred him to ppcgeeks.com? I'm pretty sure most of those issues can be resolved by searching.

Tell him to get an iPhone.

Re: My friend hates his TP cuz of these issues and blames me 4 selling him on HTC.

I just received this message from my friend today relating to the TOuch Pro:

"I finally ditched that edit - NinjaMom phone you picked out for me. I am an Iphone man now!"

I agree with him. I hate this Edit-NinjaMom Touch Pro and wish that I had gone with an Iphone. The TP is slow, freezes, build quality is terrible. I've had 3 of them and on all 3 the chrome starts peeling off after on a few weeks of light use.

The only reason I haven't bought the Iphone is because I can't get one on Sprint.... and ATT doesn't work in my house.... So I'm SOL.

Re: My friend hates his TP cuz of these issues and blames me 4 selling him on HTC.

I just love how many will assume the iphone is best and has minor difficulties. I think in regards to smart phones the best thing about it is the physics behind the scroll engine...I think it is highly accurate and I wish I could get something like that in comparison to wp...

that being said every issue can be addressed with a rom upgrade. the chrome chipping iMHO is the least of his worries in comparison to the software woes... I think personally just update the rom and tell him hey this will kill 90% of the errors...

It sounds like his expectations were too high from the sound of it and even if they weren't, he didn't give a proper chance to resolve all the issues.

I wouldn't sweat it.. you made a recommendation to him, but ultimately we are all responsible for our own choices that we make. The choice was his and his alone. He should’ve have done his own research in addition to what you told him.

If I were you, I would list all the complaints you have about him, then before he gets a chance to resolve them, I would replace him with another friend that you swear is a better upgrade!

Just my opinion!

Amen to that!

And for the friend who can't get the iphone cause he's on sprint: try the palm pre or wait for the Hero.

If you're referring to the iPhone... IMO, the kinetic scrolling engine in WM6.5 is just as good as the one used on the iPhone, and the new Rhodium manila scrolling is also quite impressive (ex: album: sliding through photos, etc)
