    I just got a new T610 as an upgrade from o2 (business) and I think the phone
    has some problems.

    I've read in some newsgroups about the powering up problem, I have this
    also. Does anyone know how to get it fixed? Software update? Handset
    replacement? For those of you who haven't come across this yet, it's when
    you can't turn the phone on! You press and hold the power-button and nothing
    happens! Sometimes 60% of the time you can't power the phone!

    The other problem seems to be with the keypad. Often, when I am scrolling
    with the little joystick it gets stuck, for example when I'm scrolling down
    through contacts or the menu system, then it gets stuck and keeps scrolling
    in the direction I was moving, even without me touching anything. And it
    generally just seems slow and sluggish. Sometimes keys just stop working
    too, for example I might be editing a contact and if I try to press the "go
    back" button (bottom-left) or the "ok" button (top-left) it just wont
    respond, sometimes if I scoll down then back up again, then it comes back to
    life.

    Anyone had any problems like this? Or got any suggestions? I'm a bit annoyed
    that I might have to send this back to o2, because I've been on the waiting
    list for ages, and I don't want to wait another 2 weeks for a new one!

    Thanks,

    I have a T610 also and don't have any problems. What is this
    'power-up' problem?

    Grtz, Rob

    I have had the power up problem.

    Also
    Poor battery life...much worse than 68i
    No SMS Text confirmation received as text message
    Cant turn off ascending ringer so end up missing calls
    And on T Mob..It sometimes loses connection...and can only connect after
    power off.
    Bluetooth is nowhere near as easy to use as the 68i

    I wish I had never bought it....the T68i was fine!

    This is a problem with O2. The only way you can get a delivery confirmation
    is to set confirmation in the phone's menu to off and putting *0# at the
    start of the message.

    > Cant turn off ascending ringer so end up missing calls


    This is apparently a *feature* which I hope they sort soon with a future f/w
    upgrade.
