Anyone know of a program that will let me use wma or mp3 files for sms notifications? I've been using SDSounds on my C550 and can't find anything to replace it.

There is a program called 'Ringo mobile' but that cuts the sounds off before it's finished playing.

I usually convert my files from mp3 to wma, then copy them to the \windows folder on the phone itself, then it'll appear on the list of optional sms notifications.

I tend to use the orange lady - 'you have one new message' taken as a soundbite from the orage answerphone, i originally got it from coolsmartphone, but can't seem to locate it now - prolly not looking right but if ya pm me i'll post it up, sorry at work at the mo so can't do it yet.

Paul, if this isn't allowed let me know, don't want to tred on anyone's toes or get modaco into trouble Cheers

Am I the only one around here uses AvantGo? Very handy for having good reading like the Guardian, Wired, and loads more chucked on to your device whenever you sync (via Active Sync, or just as easily over an HSDPA or 3G connection now). Good for those times when you can't access the web directly (on the tube, flight, etc.).

Until very recently it was a must-have app. I used it for five years every single day, but I must admit that with unlimited web browsing a reality thanks to TMobile and the increasing popularity of rss and xml, I stopped using it and finally decided to uninstal it two/three weeks ago.

It takes quite some space, you need to sync AvantGo manually, and the sync process is a lengthy one if you have subscribed to many channels. Although I am very grateful to AvantGo for allowing us to browse our fav websites while off-line for years, I think it has now become an irrelevant proposition (at least for those of us on Web n walk)

What do you think?

I use it much less as well because of w+w, but for anyone who regularly flies or takes the tube I'd still say it's a great free app. Takes about 3 minutes to sync 10 large channels' worth

of material over HSDPA now. Haven't used an RSS yet though so may be an outdated method of doing so now.

It is not that AvantGo is an outdated way to read news, but I have found RSS readers to be more flexible than AvantGo - you can copy/paste text, get the entry sent to you or someone else by email, etc. I use Egress and it works fine + ability to retrieve podcasts automatiocally - something AvantGo can't do.

Being a MoDaCo Plus member I am about to try Newsgator Go! for free - courtesy of Paul's efforts - which may be even better than Egress with the added ability to sync device content with on-line feeds so that each item is not read more than once.

Let's see how it goes, but the days of AvantGo for consumers (as we know it) are over. AvantGo making most its revenues by using the platform for professional applications (as opposed to enabling consumers to browse web content on their PPC while off-line), the rise of rss readers and unlimited data package won't mean the end for AvantGo.

My 2 pence contribution..! :rolleyes:

Found an addictive freeware game posted in the Smartphone forum yesterday - Jumpy Ball from Pocketnew. Plays nicely on the Hermes - a nice little time waster, if quite tricky.

Don't know of any freeware that does it - SPB do commercial software which does come free with the Vario II, but I don't think it's dear.

Mildly surprised that Switch (hfrmobile.com) hasn't made it onto the list - I've used it daily since the first day I found it. It's not perfect (loads before the PIN entry screen, as it's for PDAs not so much smartphones so it's not coded to wait for the PIN entry screen to disappear before it loads)... Even with that minor flaw, it's WELL worth the one extra tap it takes to close the (blank) screen, functionality-wise it's one of the most user-friendly task manager apps out.

other task managers like WisBar do not work to. Installed InClose (it's large, put at SD) and works flawless. Thanks Jygar.

I hope i am posting this in the right place. if not, apologies--i'm new.

i am trying to get help with a problem i have when trying to connect my new jasjam to the PC (and the laptop). thes emachiens are running XP (SP2). both have the AVG antivirus software but different firewalls (Kerio, Comodo).

On both, I have done a clean install of ActSynch 4.2 and attached the usb cable (direct, not via a hub). This charges the jasjam and also allowed me to synch a previous device.(Xda II mini). With the jasjam, however, I follow all steps, it creates a new LAN connection, but then it stops and will not find the device. hence no synching and no data transfer.

help!

I found that I had to add an allowed application to my firewall to get it to run properly - all four .exe files from the activesync directory must be allowed, on installation mine had only added three (from memory it was wcesmgr.exe - or something like that - that needed to be added). Gave exactly the problem you describe. If that fails try going into connections on the phone, usb-pc connection and uncheck 'use advanced usb functionality'.

There's some great stuff here, for sure, but unfortunately, Nodata totally screwed up my ability to roam in the states when I tried to switch it off again... and then damaged the settings permanently when I uninstalled it.

Batti has caused my device to lock up....

It opens up (makes viewable) the space reserved for the operator customisation allowing you to edit the files (if brave/foolhardy) and arguably more usefully gives you extra space to install applications.

Is there a free application where, if your status is busy according to your calender and you miss a call due to this, a sms will be sent to them saying, for example, "Sorry I'm in a meeting now, i'll call back asap"?

pob

you could have a look at the Mobile Secretary - it will send sms's automatically and also can send you're current calendar info.

Check it out here.
