New to Epix -- seeking help

4 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hey everyone, I just upgraded from the BJII (i617) to the Epix (i907) and my understanding is that the i907 is pretty much identical to the i780 correct? Anyway, I like this phone a lot.. but there are a couple things I miss from the BJII that I'm hoping I can change on the Epix.

1. 4-way navigation using buttons. The optical mouse is a cool feature (it's a WOW factor for most people) but I'm not a big fan of it. The 4-way navigation by sliding your thumb works alright, but I kinda miss being able to just press in the direction. Anyway, this is probably not possible, but the nav pad can be clicked in the different directions.. but it's just one button under there right? And no matter which direction you click down it's always gonna be action button right?

2. New message contact selection. It drives me crazy that the default input for selecting the contact of a new text is in numbers. I'm so used to just typing the first couple letters of the contact, but this way I have to switch from Fn to letters every time. Can this be changed?

3. Overclocking. I've installed a number of apps on the phone already and it's become quite a bit slower. I had the BJII overclocked and never had any issues with it, but was wondering if the same can be done with the Epix without causing any hardware issues.

Thanks for all your help, and sorry for the long message. I just thought I would ask all my questions in one thread.

There's gotta be a more active forum for these phones. The BJII forum on this site was also very low traffic.. can someone please share some input on my questions? Especially the overclocking, I'd like to know if it's been done and if how high it can be clocked in order to be safe.

1. Here is a solution to your D-pad issue:

2. On my i780 it's default to letters, so I'm guessing this is an Epix only issue!?

3. I have thirty something apps installed, and don't see any reduction in performance. The i780/Epix has a 624Mhz CPU, faster than almost any other WM device out there, really shouldn't need to overclock this baby... I'm guessing you have some sinful apps sucking your performance.

Wow, fantastic!! That d-pad fix is perfect, thanks a lot TopDog :excl:

Now I have to figure out how to change the default input on texts and I'll be set.

As for the overclocking, I think I got it under control now. I had S2U2 installed, which is an app that allows you to have an iPhone-like slider to unlock the phone and answer calls. It caused a lot of little problems and was a huge resource hog, as well as a battery drainer. Since uninstalling it the phone runs a lot smoother.
