I am a new MPX200 owner. I have been with ATTWS for years but after running out of my measely 1 mb data allotment in a few days with this phone I am switching to T-mobile. This site is a wealth of info and has given me the inspiration to switch to unlimited data and more voice minutes for less. I have my unlock code and I am waiting for my T-mobile sim to arrive on Friday. Hopefully all will go well and after at least 5 years with ATT, I will make the switch. Why doesn't ATT get that with the capability of these phonnes you cannot charge an arm and a leg for the internet service. Bye Bye ATTWS. :lol:

Well my T-mobile sim card came. All is working well, internet connectiion is great. I have not tried to use the phone as amodem yet - that is next.

12/9 update

Well I followed the Motorola Guide on using the phone modem feature along with the advise from mpx200.org on the initialization string and my phone worked great as a modem on T-Mobile. I got my company VPN as well as https sites. Excellent. As long as I have G access I am in business with this phone.

Also requested my attws number be transferred today to T-mobile. We shall se how long that takes. This phone is great for my use. Choice is good.

The best Philadelphia (Philly) CheeseSteak?

Ummmm...that would be in South Philadelphia.

Don't let the tourist places like Pat's and Geno's fool you into thinking they're representative of a good cheesesteak.

Two of my favorites is Tony Luke's on Oregon Ave and Jim's on South Street. :)

Hello all.

Just picked up the Motorola MPx200. I'm roped in to ATTWS for a year however :? Love the phone, hate the service. I was holding out for Verizon to offer a better deal on the Samsung i600 but the prices just didn't come down I'm afraid. I didn't realize that T-Moble could support this phone. Oh well, I'll wait a year and switch then.

BR,

One thing to think about with ATTWS is if you use the data service at all you will burn through $200 in no time. Therefore, you may want to run the economics for your use on wether paying the cancellation fee is worth it to get unlimited data for $20 per month from T-Mobile. Also when you sign up for T-Mob you will get a free phone. You may be able to sell it and subsidize some of the cancellation fee. That is the end of my anti-ATTWS rant for the day.

Hi all, i've had my SPV (original) for a year and still am way behind on the tricks to maximize the capabilities of the phone, I've SIM unlocked the phone to use with T-Mobile but havent updated or APP decerted as of yet cus I don't how, i've read these threads and gone to developer sites but still am lost. First off is there an ROM update for the US for the SPV? I see you can APP decert right from the orange site but they require a ROM greater than 1.3.x.x but i still have the 1.1.6 which is the original. can anyone help if you have the time.

thanks in advance.

well through hours of concern if the update would work in the US, the answer is "Hell Yeah", goto the Orange site and update your SPV to 1.6.x.x even if it's the original ROM 1.1.x.x and you're golden, also after you sucessfully finish then use Orange's App Unlock (Decert) via a short call and VIOLA, app unlocked and you can really take advantage of the coin you dropped on this cool new toy. I've been able to install e.g. smart explorer (signed now), movie viewing software and all kinds of other very sweet apps..

Enjoy

On Tuesday 2/3/04 I received the IMate SP2 ordered in December 2003. I have now had an opportunity to explore many of the supposedly "problematic" features of this phone.

To answer some concerns expressed here and in other fora, the i-mate seems to have all of the promised features of an Otek 8080- ( not too suprising since its the same manufacturer..but one nevers really knows!)

First impressions : feels solid, rugged, light enough to put in pocket without being weighed down.

1- Imate phone is an SP 2K3 - version 4.20.0 (build 13291) Is this the most recent build? and if not -- is it worth upgrading for a newer version and build for that phone?

2- Processor is an ARM OMAP 710 ( so says the About in Settings. Where else can one check both the type and speed of the processor?)

3- Memory ROM = 64Mb; RAM = 32 Mb ( User guide) - Space Maker tells me I have 30.33Mb in Flash Storage. System info in Task Manager also tells me I have 30.33Mb in Flash Storage and 18.51 Mb ( left?) in Total Memory. Aboput in Settings says its: "Available storage: 21.74Mb; Total Storage: 30.33 Mb; Available memory: 6.98 Mb and Total Memory:17.76Mb

4- Bluetooth works flawlessly with an H-65 Sony-Ericsson hands-off headset. Just following the instructions for the SE headset is all it took.

5- My operator T-Mobile was very helpful in giving me the settings for the GPRS ( the APN , and the 2 DSNs ) though they could not guarantee they'd work ( phone not supported , etc.etc). Nevertheless, I now seamlessly go to the Internet with PIE (set up as "column"). Not exactly lightning speed but fast enough, about 48-56K I'd say. (Anyone know how one could check the real speed)

6- MSN Messenger comes back with " service failed because it is not responding (sic) Try again later. Does this mean this is NOT latest build? Agile Messenger work just fine, though!!!

7- Most used software in past 24 hrs : Fizz Monitor; mc TRaveller ; Smart Explorer EN; SP Task Manager EN ; I am also holding onto and using File Manager in the System Management folder.

At this point, I am still discovering what it can do and am Very Satisfied :lol: with the phone's performance.

Looking forward to feedback on some of the questions or to be pointed in the right direction.
