...I bought (a reasonably cheap) special E72 dedicated to the BT Fusion Service (merging VOIP via WIFI with GSM in a seamless way - called UMA). Now I see that others seem to have different ROMs with also different options to set. I want to collect here the differences in the ROMs.
Did you know that Kyocera sells the same device in Middle-America under the name E4000?
They also have a Usermanual to downlad there (if you ignore the operator specifics a good first impression): http://www.kyocera-w...user-guides.htm
1.) Which logo appears when you boot up the phone?
BT-Fusion: animated BT-fusion Logo
2.) Which languages can be selected in
(The locale on that level will allow many, but the Language often does not)
BT-Fusion: only English
3.) Which languages can be selected for T9, e.g. in
Home->(Right SoftKey)Contact->New(First Name)->(Long Press * Key)
Is there an extra menu item "T9 Languages" + which are selected after that?
BT-Fusion: only English
4.) Which additional SW is installed on the phone (apart from WM6)?
- is MobileOffice installed (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)?
- any special Homescreenmodules?
BT-Fusion: Facade Homescreen
- Vito Ringtone Editor
- Vito Audio Notes
- IM client
- RSS Reader
- Internet Radio (only described in manual, but not on device)
- Settings for UMA
5.) Is there a downloadable version of the User Manual available?
6.) Is the phone SIM-locked?
7.) Is the Phone application locked?
BT-Fusion: Yes, but can fully be unlocked, e.g. SDA-Aplication Unlock works.
8.) Any other specialties?
BT-Fusion: The purpose for UMA has some drivers installed and resident programs as well serving this purpose. Depending on the WIFI Settings the battery will not last long. I am sure this can be settled by manipulating the relevant registry entries (HKLM\Init\ ADVERTISING SPAM Launchnn variables) - but it may take some time to find the bare minimum of a "normal, non UMA" device.
9.) Which potentially HW dependent Programs are reported to work? I suspect this is not depending on the ROM, so I will not separate the list here by ROM. Just mention for which ROM you have tested it in brackets after the program. Please do not list normal programs here - it would be just too many. Most programs that do not run are restricted by the Application Lock, not the device HW.
- WM5torage works (BT-Fusion)
- OMAPClock ?
I have addressed similar questions also in the Expansys support forum, but I see many searching around here as well and hope to see more feedback here.
P.S.: If Paul could now finally create the promised dedicated E72 forum - would be a nice Christmas present :-)
