    Ericsson a liability for Sony

    I have just spent three hours getting my T39 to connect to my Laptop. There
    is no excuse for installs to be this difficult in this day and age. It's
    simply unacceptable. I have found most open source packages easier to
    install in all seriousness.

    I foresee Ericsson dragging Sony down with them into the abyss unless they
    pull their idiots fingers out of their arses.

    perhaps they could say hello to Digital, Compaq and gateway while they are
    doen there..

    Many people today live under democratic governments, and those who don't,
    probably want to. Democracy is an answer to the question of how to create
    leaders, while preventing them from abusing that power. It achieves this
    by giving the population the power to regulate their government through
    voting, yet the ability to vote does not necessarily mean that you live
    in a democratic country. For a population to regulate their government
    effectively it must know what their government is doing, they must be well
    informed. It is a feedback loop, but this loop can be broken if the
    government has the power to control the information the population has
    access to... [freenet.sourceforge.net]

    Re: Ericsson a liability for Sony

    Took me less than 15 min to get my t616 working on my laptop. Install
    the software, turn on the IR port and worked no problem.

    You don't mention what types of problems you had.

    I have a T39m, and find it to be a very nice phone with little in the
    way of problems. I'm very happy with it. Actually, let me just remove
    the e-mail client from my list of happy features; it's slow to scroll
    through messages. Odd, given that the web browser, etc. is fast. But
    other than that I'm happy. I sync it with my TiBook, I work with GPRS
    a lot, etc.

    FWIW, I've installed on three different computers, and none of them took more
    than a few minutes.

    Whereas I see Sony as the problem -- it's never seemed to understand cellular.
    Ericsson on the other hand has very good cellular design and engineering. Its
    weakness is in marketing, which Sony was supposed to address, but hasn't
    seemed to do much good thus far.

    Firstly, an explanation of your operating system would be nice!
    I assume you are either using a bluetooth dongle or an embedded
    bluetooth module. I have been working with a usb bluetooth dongle, and
    it is a pleasure to install and use!
    I got my T39 working under sucky win98 in under 10mins! I used it to
    perform dial up networking for me while away on a trip.
    The linux bluez stack is also awesome, stable, reliable and a pleasure
    to use! I setup a lan via bluez in no time!

    Ericsson make awesome products compared to the competitors! Robustness,
    reliability and quality are what you should expect from Ericsson!
    My previous phone was a noki.. rubbish phone, it broke 6 times within 2
    years... my T39 and now my T68 are flawless!No repairs needed... which
    really rocks my boat!
