Until UBiQUiO fix stuff... here's some things I know you're all gonna like, more will appear as I create them! :)

P

Change the 'Phone' soft key on the Home screen to 'Calendar'... useful as the Phone key duplicates the green button functionality.

Rename the 'GPRS' connection type to 'GPRS, 3G', to avoid confusion.

Hi Paul,

Thanks a million for these fixes. I am wondering if you have found a way to increase the earpeice volume on the device? Also if there is a way to keep the phone volume memory not lost when you do a soft reset? I am not going to ask about the keyboard because it is a nightmare!

Best regards,

Gilbert

Mine does not lose its volume settings after soft reset. That said, I've got SPB Phone Suite installed; maybe that has something to do with it (it controls volume settings among other things). Try that -- it's an app you'll definitely want to have on any WM Pro (or Pocket PC) device anyway. I think a trial version is available. http://www.spbsoftwa.../phonesuite/?en

Paul,

I am getting my 503 tomorrow (in the States). I was assured that it had the 'new' ROM, but seing how many problems everyone been having, wonder now if I am soon to be a beta tester for Ubiquio.

What version of ROM do you have on the headset you were provided.

Thanks Paul, you are a godsend. If you didn't have these fixes, who would I get them from? From UBiQUiO, err I mean Expansys since they are the same?

Edit: BTW, if you want to change the left softkey to whatever you want, you just have to edit the registry.

KEY: HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Today/Keys/112
String Value: Default -> "Name to Display"
String Value: Open -> "Path to exe"

2nd EDIT: I have issues heaving people on the other end when I am outside, but not inside. I tried to increase all of the volume files I could find in the registry but I don't think it is doing anything. Can anyone come up with a .cab to fix the volume?

Paul, is it possible to adapt the xml files in the cab files you have provided? I want to change the camera fix for the size to 640x480 and with the quality as high.
I have been having a tinker but to be fair don't really know what I am doing. I have edited xml files previously with dreamweaver but the CAB bit is something I havent played with before.
Any help would be gratefully received,
regards

There is a ROM update on the Expansys 503G forum - new version 3.05.
Haven't tried it yet because my phone is still in the post.
Can't wait to test it!

Are these updates useful if the latest ROM is installed?

The camera ones are the only ones you will need. Also get the sdhc patch from expansys support forum. There is a program called remapsoftkeys that sorts the soft keys out.

Forgot to mention that yes you will need the latest rom update. It fixes some keyboard problems. It still leaves the phone slightly unstable.
The rom update will totally clear all previously installed programs, contacts, calendar items, email, sms only stuff on memory card will survive.

Thanks a lot! Do you have a link for the sdhc update? I had a look on the expansys support forum but cannot see it.

Hi you will need to download all of the files that paul has posted.It would be best to do this on your computer, put them all in one folder.If you have a micro sd card you could transfer the folder to it.If you do not you will need to run activesync on your computer and connect your device.You will then either plug in the memory card or copy the folder to your device.Now on the device using file explorer find the folder you moved across, click on the ones you want to install. The device will ask where to install it and then you can install another one.

The link does work. I have just tried it. Try and download it from a computer not through your device.
You may want to look into upgrading the rom though. I have upgraded my 503g to the new 3.10 rom and it has fixed a few problems.
This rom supports sdhc cards straight away with no patch.
You can find more info on the rom here .
