Just Switched From Vario 3

Hi All,

Just recieved the MDA Compact IV from T-Mobile UK today after upgrading from the Vario 3 as they couldnt give me a release date for the Vario 4.

Anyhow first thoughts are:

1. How do i get rid of the T-mobile branding i dont want a pink phone - is there a normal way of doing this without altering the ROM etc as there used to be on the Vario 3 ? Ive tried the search function but havent found an answer

2. Is there a hard reset button or function ?

3. What is the purpose of the round button in the centre should it scroll ?

Cheers

Ok to try and answer some of your questions...

1 if you search for a package called diamond TF3D Config..... XDA Developers is where i got it from you can then create a themes box and download the Black HTC which is what my phone came with. This will take away the Tmobile branding

2 there is a way to hard reset... the easy way to achive this is to use the clear internal storage on the system tab, this in effect wipes the phone starting it from when you 1st switched it on.

3 some applications use the middle button, but like the iphone you can use the outside to zoom in / out in opera and tomtom and photos

1. The following thread also covers this point

2. Did you really mean hard reset, or just a soft one. There is a small red button inside the slot where the stylus comes out if the latter.

Wow Stuuno,

I needed a lie down after reading the hard reset... i was sure that the clear storage under the settings/system pannel did that as it offers the option to either clear internal storage and also the option to clear the built in memory card :rolleyes:

This is one of the reasons why i love Modaco as there are so many people trying to help fellow users out.

Use the clear storage option in Start > Settings > System if you don't want to use the hardware button option. I have used both and they both do the same thing - clear storage is more user friendly.
