[access-uk] Re: re owasys

Hi Ray.

From my perspective, size is not that important to a point where it is not an issue with this product. more importantly, it just lacks some features that are essential. In particular, the lack of ability to back up numbers is important. Even if the person using the phone is not a computer user, at least a friend should be able to help the person back up their contacts and put them on a disk or something for safe keeping. With the Oasis, as far as I know, you can't do this so if you lose the phone you lose your contacts. Also, the phone is expensive and if a person really gets into texting or wants to do more there is no room for growth and I have known some of the seemingly most unlikely people really get bitten by the technology bug. It can be hard to predict some times.

Cheers

Graham

OH dear!  I find this obsession with size so interesting, especially
as its the opposite of what the spammers keep telling me, (smile).

What I recall of the Oasis, it would certainly go in a jacket pocket.
The bloke I know who uses it does dress quite trad, but if you are the
sort that goes about in shirt sleeves and you are lucky enough to
actually have a pocket in your shirt, I suppose these latest
must-haves will go in one of those pockets.

In fact the size of the Oasis might in, err,  large partbe meant to be
its point:  i.e. room for keys you can feel more easily.

No, its relative lack of functionality, absence of a screen, and the
price go against it, but size?  Some of the millitary-style bags women
carry around with them would accomodate an Oasis, and a lot more!

Also find it funny the heroic lengths VI people are going to in
accomodating this post Walkman world we inhabit.  Given the trend in
devices that'll need a magnifying glass to find them soon, I wonder
where peopple will end up sticking these devices?  Not trying to
invite rudeness there, (smile).  Just amazed at the compulsion to be
in the fashion mainstream!

Cheers,

Hi Graham,

Problem I have with it, apart from the fact that it is too darned
big,is the
speech is pretty poor for new users, and because there is no screen,
it is
very difficult for sighted people to help you, if you come across a
problem.
But the biggest problem is that the operators don't know about it.  So
if
you have a problem with, say your Sim card, and you don't know whether
it is
the phone or the card, your operator won't have a clue when you tell
them
you have an Auasys.  Mainstream is always best in my view.

All the best

Steve

there have been a few firmware updates I think.  I know one person who
has
one and is very satisfied with it.  This phone is all ready to go and
it
does have its place but the design could be far better I would say.

Hi Denis,

You are the first person I have heard to say that the Auasys is
reliable.
It usually crashes all over the place from the reports I have heard,
and
the
speech is some kind of Spanglish.  It is hard work!

All the best

Steve

Hello Brian,

I chose the Owa-sys phone because I did not want an all singing and
dancing
mobile phone.

The phone is essentially only useful for calls and text messaging.
It has
some fancy features like ringing tones plus the essential date/time
and
phone book features.  It is a robust and reliable mobile.

I use a Vodafone Pay-as-you-go tarriff and find buying voice packs
at £25
for 200 mins the best value.  Also, from time-to-time, I top up the
calling
credit for texts etc and £25 worth goes a long way in my case.

HTH.

Denis
