Hi,

Had the QTEK 8500 a few weeks now, and am very impressed.

The only niggle I have is the intermittent GPRS failure. It sometimes errors with "unable to connect. verify you have network coverage and try again". If I reboot the phone it fixes it. My previous phone was an SPV C500 and worked every time. My phone prior to that was the Motorola MPX200. This had imtermittent GPRS problems depending on the ROM I used, mainly the 2003 one.

I setup my GRPS settings and MMS from the various posts, and most of the time, they both work well, but as I've set it to check my mail every 8 hours, and none arrive, it is then I notice connection doesn't work.

A quick question: from when does the automatic mail checking start,i.e 8 hours from when? from when I last connected manually, or is it a set time? When would it be if I set it to "Every day"?

I don't want to keep rebooting the phone to workaround this.

I know my current settings work most of time so perhaps it's a tweak I need.

Don't have a solution I'm afraid m8, but I have the Dopod variant of this phone and also experience this problem. Usually once every day or so. I assume its a ROM issue (although strange that its affecting Qtek and Dopod!).

Anyway, no solution for you I'm afraid but at least your not alone (as if thats any consolation :D )

anyone else got any suggestion?

I've noticed it occurs after a certain time period, perhaps some sort of sleep issue similar to the missed calls. It works fine after switch the phone on, but as the day or days progress, it no longer works.

Anyway, I decided to switch off the phone every night, and on again in the morning, and it seems to work fine.
Shame, as I have to find an alternative alarm clock now though :D
