Question about T-Mobile Wing™ Smartphone
My wing just recently starting running very slow. especially when using text messaging. sometimes texting completely freezes my wing up forcing me to open up the back and remove the battery just to resart the phone. any solutions?
Ok. So stumbled across this page because I was having the same problem, i.e. all of a sudden the wing was moving unbelievably slow and would lock up if I tried to text. I pulled out the battery, classic, and then I pulled out the sim card. Then I put the battery back in and started it with out the sim card. I unlocked the phone with my code, I couldn't do the second "unlock" because there was no sim card. However, I could play solitaire, look at memory; ya know, mess with the basics. Then I turned the phone off with the power button, pulled the battery out, put the sim card back in, turned the phone on and now everything is great! I have even texted with no problems! hope this works for you!!!

You guys are confused first off the wing is cool its not as fast overclocked as the mda but once you get the basic problems out its a charm tried many roms like ten of them on my wing and used them for a bit the best one that worked is called OTP (open touch project) otpv7.70 build 20755 its wm 6.1 its solves alot of proplems accociated with wm6 the fone has no problems its just the rom it contains touch flo not the 3d one just the scroll second you must have a expansion memory card to install everything that can resid on the expandle memory e.g. appz , games, pictures; reson being you want enough free memory available for your programs and fone second you must install a memory managment software known as memmaid best one i found! second install batterystatus v.05.140 not the new **** it has to be this one and overclock your cpu to 247 max! you will see increased speeds and ram availability! and its very stable been using for four months now zero problems!

The best solution to fix this problem is to SLAM dunk your wing in the trash can and get another phone. Right now I am on my 3rd wing and its about to be 4 here really soon. Personally I think that T-Mobile should be held accountable for selling such a faulty product. My biggest mistake when purchasing the wing was not looking at forums and customer reviews to find out what others thought about this phone... I just can't wait until my contract is up and I can dump this phone for good.

The problem with the T-Mobile wing is that it has the same 200MHZ processor as its predecessor, and therefore Windows Mobile 6 is sluggish on it. What I would suggest it a) doing a hard reset, or b) completely wiping out all of the data on the phone and start fresh (remember to backup your contacts and email accounts). Also, check out the task manager and see what programs are running in the background, kill whatever your not using because the Wing does not have a lot of internal memory and the OS sucks most of the free memory right up, and this can lead to the phone being super slow. If worst comes to worst, send it back to T-Mobile to have them check it out, you might have a bad processor, or bad memory within the device.

If you would clean out the messages and get rid of some programs then it would work alot better. also you can put the favorite five on hide it saves space. what you should look at is the memory in system setting. if it under 10.00mb on the free storage and programs it will run slow.you don"t have to be special to know that.

Windows mobile isn't for everyone. It's basically for a computer geek or professional. The Wing,like all other WM devices act as computers with a wide range of program installations, registry editors, and problems that are included with them. The Wing has limited RAM which makes problems more apparent. Freeing memory often (I often use Oxios CloseApps) is the best way to keep from constant restarts. Most people who buy WM devices only need a standard phone, and get frustrated and overwhelmed with the complexity. In other words, free your memory often, it'll be a huge help.

I have reached my frustration threshold with my tmobile wing. I feel like I wasted my money on this product. Can't send text messages, constant low memory message even though I have downloaded only 1 application, constant freezing up and locking up, quite often I have to pull the battery out from the back because the phone just stops--I mean the list goes on an on.
I can't believe a person can spend this amount of money for such a faulty product.

Install NEW ROM FROM T-Mobile, it frees up about 10 megs of storage on the device. After that, install the Battery Status Today Plugin and get control of your apps. Note: use the taskmanager app that comes with all the Wing ROMs to close apps instead of putting them in the background (still running and consuming resources). Come on people, it's not that bad. I can download and resend emails up to 6MB! I only have to reset once in a blue moon. Clear your Pocket IE cache and clear your messages from each account regularly. No more problems.

If you are using windows mobile 6, basically all you have to do is go into your settings and close all running programs. Here are the steps: Closing out of running programs * Hit Start button. * Go to Settings. * Tab over to System. * Scroll down to Memory. * Tab over to Running Programs. * Select programs that you want to close and hit Stop or Stop All

I just turned off the 'sent e-mail' confirmation and turned off the vibration alert for it. So far no more freeze ups.

The T-mobile wing is very inefficient with application and operating system memory use. The more application you use the sooner your system will eventually freeze up. This happens on all wings and T-mobile is aware of the issue. Just shutting down applications is not enough to prevent freezes. The recommended solution from T-mobile if you want to call it that is to fully power off the wing once every 24 hours and removing the battery in the process does not hurt either. Then fully power up the phone again. This is not a phone that can be hevily used and left on for weeks at a time without a full power cycle.

I think I know what the problem is. You might have auto-fix or something like that on your phone. You have to go to your settings and turn that off. Sorry that it's a vague answer, I forgot the exact steps.

My t-mobile wing's speakerphone is always on! even when it says that it is off. i've tried a resetting it, pulling the battery out, and clearing the storage. nothing has worked.

Look for Herald which is the HTC version for the phone. The best option is to install a different ROM on the phone. The ROM that is released with the device from T-Mobile is the main issue, not necessarily the processor(which doesnt help anything). I'm currently running Windows Mobile 6.1 on my T-Mobile MDA just fine.
The forum should have the information for flashing a different ROM on the phone, but be aware that this may void the warranty and if done incorrectly can brick it, which is fine if its under warranty, just replace it. :D

I had those problems with my wing early on ... i'd suggest software that manages memory. sktools works great. it frees up RAM and also can adjust settings that maximize memory available. mine has been running great since i installed it.

I hate my t-mobile cell phone. I have received two replacement and still it does not work right. Service department knows about the issues and wants to use us as an R/D to find problem. They also do not replace it for cheaper model and want you to suffer . I wish I kept my trio

If you surf the web on you phone, try clearing web history. my phone's memory was sucked up when i surfed the web this made it slow down.

Actually search for T Mobile Wing Overclock and you can get a program that I just put on mine, which you can overclock your phone and should help out.

Return to t-mobile. I am on my FOURTH wing! The wing can not run efficiently using Windows 6.
