SMART Communications has just released the
Amazing Phone 2. Based on the HTC Voyager, the Amazing Phone 2 incorporates the
several services powered by Action Engine. This gives the users the ability to
backup their data over-the-air, retrieve data via the Amazing Explorer and
download ringtones or homescreen background images using the Amazing Store.
Included in the package is the Smartphone and battery, charger, USB Synch cable
and charger adaptor for charging the Amazing phone directly from a charger.
I went to a Smart Wireless Center and they said Prepaid isnt availible yet... They said during maybe the 2nd week of July. Do you know the exact date??

Yeah yeah! They always find a way! Hahaha well i'm getting pre-paid because I live in China and I always move from Manila to Beijing almost monthly and I have a plan in China. I really can't wait for this phone. Smart Wireless Center at Alabang Festival Mall said itll be out maybe at the first or second week of this month!!

 I already got my voyager since a month ago. Its better than the SAP 1 coz it doesn't hang too often like SAP 1. But the battery life is still a big problem. So for people on the go who wants this phone....I suggest that you guys buy an extra battery or a car charger!
Posted by Jose on 04.07.04 - 06:16:11
 Yeah... I'm going to America today and I'll be back in Manila on the 15th so hopefully by then it'll be around. If you wanna e-mail me my email is firstname.lastname@example.org i cant wait for this phone over here!!

 Yeah, I heard about the battery problem... What drains the battery so fast, anyways?

 Good news the new release of ROM version 188.8.131.52 improve overall functionality specially the power consumption. This seems to be fixed now.

 That indeed is good news.
But when I tried the older version without an SD card inserted, it performed pretty well for nearly 2 days on a single charge.
