    Anyone have problems with the Prophet / S200 / Jamin / Neo ?

    Just wondering how this device holds up in the long-run. I know it seems most people here switch phones after just half a year, but I was wondering if there are any problems creeping up like battery life, failures, etc...

    I put an order for one, but I can still cancel it in a couple days... please post any problems you've found here!

    My Qtek S200 has worked flawlessly since Day 1 back in early May. This is one of the best devices on the market!

    My JAMin is working great. First one I got was DOA (constant reboots ~5min uptime) but was replaced promptly (superiorgadgets.com).

    mine had a small dead spot on the screen, in the 9 PDA's ive had, ive NEVER had a problem with the touch screen, i guess my luck ran out with the jamin, it also reboots from time to time but its rare and i think its one of the programs on my pda has been OC'd for a long time so that maybe it.

    my pda was repaired by Teleservice in germany, $100CDN shipping ONE WAY!!!!!

    its not bad, but i went from a Dell Axim X30H 624MHz CPU to a crappy 200MHz TI, i lost alot of functionality, mostly games, skype runs like poo even with registry hacks and OC. most things load slow, streets and trips updates hella slow. but i guess im still happy because my axim sucked *** on battery life, i only got like 2 hours use lol

    the CPU sucks at playing xvid too unless all xvid is reencoded to QVGA res, then it runs perfect. my dell axim could play xvid at 720x480 and it would work flawlessly.

    GPS maps just update slow but its still well with in the usability range.

    if you are deciding weather or not to buy this device, i would say no, it is an older unit and came out at the very begining of this year, it was already replaced by other devices. i would wait untill HTC ditchs the S260 and P3300 and replaces those 2 with something respectable.

    The prophet is probably the same, speed wise, to k-jam. I much prefer my TyTN with the faster processor, but for most of the things I do with it, the prophet was just fine, even if slower.

    I've had mine (dopod 818pro) since first week of January, and never had any issues with it, hardware or other. I've seen some people had problems with the dopod in the begining and had to replace screen digitizers for example, but I never had any problems, all worked fine from day one and still going good.

    thx for the info..i was hoping to get a side device until the tytn price drops as my kjam with the 200mhz is just not working out. good thing i still have an ax x50v with me..other than the processor speed..love the form factor of the s200..

    oh ok if you have an X50v yeah the jamin is perfect, any games or CPU intensive stuff you can use a REAL pda. the only thing i miss is the intel xscale compatibility

    with the jamin there is only 1 IR remote that i know of that works with TI CPU's (and it works good actually)

    with the xscale, ALL IR remotes work, some remotes only support xscale. so theres also a compatibility thing. most other ARM apps work flawlessly though

    I've had my S200 since May or so, and it is still running flawlessly.

    Dopod 818 Pro

    I've had my Dopod 818 Pro since December '05.

    All things considered, I've been very pleased with it with the exception of the external speaker. I had to have it replaced back in August.
