Fuze Issues?

[ Edited ]
I picked up my Fuze today, right after work, and not to be too surprised that not many people had gotten this phone. It's funny how the employees were all "ohh" about it wishing they had waited instead of buying the other phones. Anywho...
 
  1. I thought it was possible to change the background on the Fuze by default [w/o installing any cab files, etc.]?
  2. Also, when I tried to change things on my today screen, such as putting the device lock on the today screen, it never shows up. When I go back into the settings, the box is unchecked, repeatedly. I can not get this to work.
  3. And I thought when the stylus was pulled out, it was supposed to wake up my device? Is there any settings for this, or what?
  4. Lastly, I know most people don't care, but when I went into the AT&T tab, and selected the Games & Apps folder, it was empty. Is this the same for everyone?
 
Can my phone be defective? I think this phone is nice, certainly something that I'd have to get used to, but I'm questioning if I rather keep my tilt or not. Help!

Re: Fuze Issues?

I just got off a very lengthy talk with tech support. The woman i talked too actually went to this forum and read some of the stuff in these threads with me over the phone. She said I was only one of a few that have called in about the FUZE so far, but that it had only 'officially' come out today. The CS techs do not have a tech manual on the FUZE yet, even. She advised that I return it and get something else, or gamble my 30 day return for a software update that might come out. As far as CS's go she was very knowledgable about WM devices in general and uber cool, but was unable to solve my problem.

The more I read these threads about certain problems that exactly mirror my issues with this brand new device, the more I wonder if I should wait a few months for the bugs to work out before I get a new FUZE.

1) in the dark, the keyboard illumination is not perfectly even, my number 2 key is really bright.
 
2) the freaking music stops when you turn off the screen. I want it to be like my iphone so when I click the top button, the phone goes into power save mode but continues to play music, my epix and iphone could both do this.

My 8525 does that and I assume the Tilt does that as well.  Sucks when I'm trying to listen to hockey games while at work, I have to lock the device and turn off the auto shut off.

Re: Fuze Issues?

Wow, and to think that AT&T would have tried to work out all these bugs/issues before releasing the phone.
I think I may return mine tomorrow, and possibly wait a while, or just keep my tilt. The phone is nice, but half the things
that intrigued me to buy it, arent even available.
 
I was hoping I'd have that look that the original HTC Touch Pro has, you know the 'theme' or whateve, or to at least
be able to change it easily. Nope.
The Youtube app never connects, and neither does Internet sharing.
 
I accidently forgot my reciept at the store, I guess I'll just pick it up and give them this phone back.
So much for picking something up on it's release day. I guess I should have learned from what happened
with the Iphone. Smiley Sad

No, at least not my Tilt. I play music and put it to sleep all the time, it always continues to play for me.

Re: Fuze Issues?

figured it out somewhat, it has to sense headphones in Smiley Happy then it continues to play, I wonder how this will work with bluetooth headphones?

Still kinda bothered by the uneven keyboard illumination, does anyone else have this? If its common I dont mind. lol.

Re: Fuze Issues?

Mine is brighter towards the top of the keyboard and then dims down and to the outsides.
 
Internet sharing is also disabled.

No Blackberry Connect software either.

This is a deal breaker... The unit goes back first thing in the morning.

Add that it constantly disconnects from Activ-sync after about 5 minutes.... Argh! this is frustrating.
