I just got the Samsung T809 on T-Mobile, and it’s taking some getting used to. Although the device’s physical appearance is nice, the user interface lacks and is not as good as Sony Ericsson and Nokia devices I’ve used in the past.
There’s a couple of annoyances. You can’t use mp3’s as ringtones (though you can just copy it to your PC, change the extension to 3gp, and then copy it back. It’ll work). The phone doesn’t have the option to ring and vibrate simultaneously.
It’s nice having bluetooth on my laptop. It takes just a few seconds to do the above process.
Frustratingly, there’s no way to port a number from T-Mobile ToGo (prepay) to a plan (contract), and when I try and forward all calls from my old number to the new one, it tells me it’s a restricted action. Talk about making things hard.
Not sure whether I’m going to keep using this, though I’ll give it a few days. Looking forward to the SonyEricsson M600i being released (in the UK). That’s the phone I want to get!
