Buyer Be Beware

I first saw this Acer DX900 while in Spore about 1 month ago. I waited for such long time just to wait for any feedback from the market through the forums.

Finally I bought DX900 at LowYat outlet in Kuala Lumpur. I live here. But my nightmare just began.

I have two sim card of course. One is Hotlink, another is Digi. The shop assistance says that Hotlink has 3G and should be in Sim 1 and Digi without 3G should be in Sim 2. this was done. Today about the same time around 6 pm I took out my phone from pocket and surprised to find it Hanged. I try to switch it On and Off. But it just Hanged. So I walk to the same shop I bought the phone. After a few moments of fiddling, one of the assistant switch DiGi to Sim 1 and Maxis to Sim 2, and the phone works again.

To be the phone has a defect. Imagine having a 1.8L but only 1.3L engine. They don’t repair and refuse to change the phone. Let the buyer Beware of entering into nightmare buying this phone unless you have all the time to go to the outlet again the next day.

Day3 with Acer DX900;
Day2 problem with Acer DX900

Got phone call from retailer to come to LowYat to download the patch to solve the problem. After about 30 minnutes, they came back and say ok. I request to change the hotlink to Sim 1 and Digi to Sim 2, and, and, wala, the Acer DX900 is still hanging...hanging....so they request I should go to High Point service center together with the warranty card to ask them wat can be done.

So I go to BTS 9th Floor HIghPoint service network. The technical counter say, they are juz a collection bureau if want repair please go to Subang Jaya HQ. Or request to change the phone as you can do it within 7 days. I told him the retailer refuse to do anything else and ask me to come with the warranty.

My patience is running thin. I have spend my money to BUY now a problem product with pinball solutions.

I request for the Distributor number and call them. They say will inform the principal and will get back within saturday or monday.

We shall see monday.

Day 3 with Acer DX900
Day 2 problems with Acer DX900

Today I went back to the retailer in LowYat because they say they have a software patch for my Acer DX900 which hanged yesterday.

So after about 30 minutes there, the shop assistance say already download and the phone should be good to use. I request to swap back the Hotlink to Sim1 and DiGi to Sim2. Guess what, ooolala, it HANGED. So the retailer suggest to bring the warranty card go to HighPoint Service Center. The counter technican says that they are juz a collection center and will send the phone to Subang Jaya, to HQ. By now I know that I hv bought myself a problem. Waste time (2days) already
and waste money (inferior product).
I request for the HQ number so I can inquire the supplier number of this stupid phone. They give, and I call the supplier. The supplier request for 1-2 days time as which to intimate the Principal on this problem.

Let's wait for next day.

Day 6, Nightmare DX900 continues..,

Today I wake up. Shake me phone, there is a heartbeat - green light blinking - but it won't wake, it goes into coma.

Went back to the retail shop. Now the retailer tells me why did not request for change earlier as there is already talktime recorded and cannot change. So have to send the phone to ICU.

Geez, only 6 days n the phone is in ICU, not counting the time I have wasted doing productive work.

Buy at your own risk!

I bought the same phone Acer DX900 and the WIFI can't work. Less than 24hrs, I went back to the same shop in LowYat and get a replacement. No Problem there.
I have 2 sims; Maxis and Digi.
Due to my unlimited data plan with DiGi, I put the DiGi SIM into slot1 and Maxis SIM in slot2.
No problem whatsoever in terms of connectivity. However at the today screen, the operator's name for MAXIS is not being displayed. However, if I put Maxis in Slot1 and DiGi in Slot2, both names appears correctly. Changed back to DiGi in Slot1 and Maxis in Slot2, same problem, MAXIS operator's name not being displayed. Went to ACER support site and donwload the patch to show the operator's name and installed the cab file. Voila, problem solved.
My only concern now is the RAM. So fast going to 75% usage in less than a few hours.

regards,

I am very impressed! Acer got it exactly right on this phone and it's important that the phone is valued on it's sold capabilities for further development. The key selling points to me were: Dual sim operations, windows compatible/operated, fast and simple handling. It ticked all boxes.
I have had very positive experiences with the unit so far. I have read some other reviews on the net and am surprised that people compare this phone to state of the art gameboys and high-end cameras. People: this is a business dual sim phone with a lot of extras. It does what is says on the tin and it does it quite impressively. On the topic: it's voip, dual camera and speakerphone capabilities are excellent, compared to other high-end phones.
I run my own business and have very low tolerance for underperforming phones and pda’s. I setup 3 email accounts (email + attachments stored on the SD card), running on wifi and wlan w/o problems. It comes with windows mobile 6.1 + spb shell 2.1 and the interface is good. On spb shell: don't upgrade to 3.0 if you don't want the performance to drop. I have over 1,000 contacts on the phone and suspect that spb shell doesn't deal with that and the dual sim functionality too well. After restoring the phone to 2.1 with application recovery (another cool feature), it still appeared to be struggling at which point I decided to hard reset to factory defaults. All spb problems disappeared and it has been running fine since.
I got my phone in May and managed to apply the ROM and battery saving updates w/o any problems. When you download it from the ACER support area on their site, it comes with a dummy-proof step by step set of instructions. Even I managed to do this properly and the patch works fine as the battery life has extended considerably.
In conclusion: For those who want to have a stable business phone with dual sim capability; this is the rolls-royce of dual sim phones on the market today. For those expecting a lot of high end magic, not related to what the unit is supposed to do: find a gadget w/o dual sim functionality. ;-) I am assuming that ACER will be introducing more horsepower and memory on next versions to deal with high-resource demanding software. But then again: hasn’t that always been the case?

I quite like my DX900 - it's a bit slow and the battery life was an issue at first, but the fact that it can take 2 sims and has WM6 has solved a lot more problems for me than it created, so very happy.

Try this link for DX900 downloads:
http://www.acer-ee.com/acer/service.do?LanguageISOCtxParam=en&miu10einu2...

Or if the link down't work, go to http://www.acer-ee.com -> Service and Support -> Driver Download -> Smart Handheld and follow your nose.

That's just the Eastern European site - Acer has a lot of different websites for different countries, and most of them have different patches/downloads for the DX900, so you may need to check them all :) Go to http://www.acer.com/worldwide/ to check out all of their different countries' websites.
