    Considering they're different technologies completely (CDMA vs GSM), there's no way in hell it will ever work on Sprint.

    Sorry :D

    I would use this one:

    In fact, I do use that one :( I get about double the battery life from it. With Push mail, non-push GMail, Palringo, and fairly heavy use, it lasts at least 2-3 days. On the regular battery it lasts a little over a day.

    The problem is the Windows Live Messenger service. Remove it and the problems go away.

    Rebooting and changing the homescreen should not take several minutes. You have some problem with either software, the flash or the hardware. Try re-flashing your phone with WM6. If that doesn't solve your problems, then try using it without a MicroSD card in the phone.... If that doesn't work either, then you've probably got something wrong with your phone.

    Also, when doing these steps, don't install any 3rd party software... as it could potentially mess with your phone and skew the testing.

  5. merwin added a post in a topic How to configure US T-Mobile PUSH mail on any ROM   

    It's the password for the mailbox that T-Mobile is monitoring.

    BTW, some of us have created cab installs for it :-) However, I cannot discuss this nor provide links to it.

    Requires files from the old ROM :rolleyes: That cab file doesn't have all of the necessary files. Actually, it only has one file in it... my guess is that it's the T-Mobile e-mail configuration app, but not the part that intercepts SMS messages.

    I'll have to take some time at some point and extract the files from a ROM.

  7. merwin added a post in a topic T-Mobile Dash caller photo id is poop.   

    This is an Outlook issue, not a T-Mobile Dash issue. Go into your PC Outlook and add a photo to a contact. Notice something? Ding! The photo is tiny, just like on the Dash.

    You'll also notice that if you sync with an outlook server, all of your contact photos will sync as well. I'm not sure about you, but I kind of like that part :rolleyes:

    Where do you get the TMOMail app from?

    The wm6 dash doesn't really support the dim/bright stuff. I can get it to work, but when you unlock the phone, the software automatically makes the screen bright again, and not in the normal way either... it doesn't trigger a notification that the power setting was changed, so my app never sees it and it stays bright until you let it go idle and come back from idle.

    You can use the old version of TPC on WM6 just fine... just don't set it to dim and you'll be fine.

    I like how it "Improves Handwriting Recognition" on the Dash, especially when it's not a touchscreen :) Thanks for the link though!

    BTW, when are you guys getting a flexiskin for the dash? That would completely rock

    I would consider windows/menus loading faster a speed increase... It speeds up the display of windows and menus, right? :)

    It's somewhere around 4 or 5 times faster read from the Storage Card with the hack. That's a significant increase indeed, and if it didn't cause problems for some people it would definitely be worth it.

    I'm hoping that various users will provide some support for the product themselves :) All of these questions have been answered before.

    In any case, I lost the source to the recent versions of the software, so I'm going to have to start from the beginning for lots of the features. This isn't going to happen for a month or so probably, as my paying job has priority, and it's keeping me very busy.

    Lo-Fi problems with scrolling
    On my smartphone, I normally use the 2 and 8 key for Page Up / Page Down (respectively). However, on MoDaCo, some of the links are tagged with the first few numbers as links, so I can't use Page Up. Is there a way to fix this? It's annoying trying to scroll up and ending up navigating somewhere.
