Issues are being reported by users regarding WLAN connectivity. YouTube videos do not play on WLAN on some handsets. Also, while this handset supports bluetooth 2.1, the A2DP profile isn't supported by the phone software, resulting in any stereo headset not being recognizedˈ It also has issues regarding call logs.
