Heavy, thick, with flimsy keys. China doesn't pay to return defective stuff
7 June 2012
Summary: China purchase-don't; Larger and heavier than we thought. We purchased two, one wouldn't charge so we went through the hassel of trying to return it to China. The vendor warned not to return even defective stuff as it will be costly, by jimminee they are right, $20+ and vendors don't pay to return even defective units. The keys are a bit flimsy so we will likely resell the second one and take a loss.
Summary: It usally takes a lot of headache before I leave a bad review. I've had my share with this phone... I've been fighting with it since about July of 2010. Since my previous Tilt was having problems (it was pretty old, but it WORKED!) I thought that replacing it with a Tilt 2 would be a great idea. Wrong! The Tilt 2 is/has - > Slow, locks up, freezes ALL the time. > Poor keyboard layout. > Stupid magnet in stylus. Really? I'd like to slap the engineer that thought of this.
Summary: I bought an HTC Tilt 2 when replacing a Blackberry Bold 9000 (end of contract/changing to a new phone). It was THE flavor of choice and had a number of things I wanted. I had it for three weeks. Of the time, all the windows features worked fine, didn't have difficulty with freezes or other things that people reported. I set up my email and it failed numerous times - would not automatically send/receive without going thru hoops.
Excerpt: This is my second windows mobile phone. The other worked wonderfully! This one has many bugs. First, they dumped the voice recorder button off the side. I use to use it while driving, but now I can only access it with the stylus--so not while driving. Also, it freezes up constantly. I have to wait for it for minutes--often while I'm in a hurry, or rest it by pulling out the battery.
AT&T warranty SUCKS and their expensive smartphones don't even last a year !!!

Summary: Why buy these $250+ phones and get stuck with a 2-yr contract when the phone doesn't last even a year? It's almost like BAIT & SWITCH by AT&T. They stop "carrying" the particular expensive phone in less than a year so when the phone dies in a few months AT&T won't have to exchange it with a new one for you... but they got your contract for 2 years... with a cheaper phone in exchange.
Excerpt: Do not buy this phone. It fell apart within the first month. The rubber keys on the internal keypad were shaved off when I opened the phone. Product support and repairs through HTC will cause you unwanted aggravation and will cost you. HTC is difficult to deal with. Repairs take longer than they should and they ultimately caused more damage to my phone when it was in their possession and refuse to make the repairs unless I pay for it.
Excerpt: This phone has tons of bugs. Most people I know that own it have had to master reset the phone at least 3 times. And many are on their 2nd or 3rd REPLACEMENT Tilt. I would not recommend this phone to anyone. PROS: it makes a great, expensive paperweight!!!
Excerpt: I feel like I gave the Tilt a fair try, as I tried 3 different Tilt phones. I did love some of the features of the Tilt. The touch screen was fun and easy to use and it had good organization. In a cell phone I am looking for a good phone first, with good organization and email capabilities.
Excerpt: I have been a mobile phone user since the beginning of time...and this phone is really poor. Pros: Telenav software is great, don't need a GPS unit other than this. Camera and video are amazing; the best I have ever seen on a phone. Cons: Battery life is horrible. Response time on the touch screen is very slow, and if you are one who needs to make conference calls using bridge dial-ins you will find it almost impossible to use.
