ePocrates is made for PocketPCs and Palm devices.

Skyscape software is made for Palm devices only.

Sorry. It's not a locked/unlocked issue. They are not meant to work on the i600 Samrtphone OS.

Yes it works....I've been using it. Thought it doesnt import my AOL contacts. I have to add them manually. I'll check to see if the new version fixes that bug.

I wonder if AOL themselves will release a version of AIM for smartphone. I use to use AIM on my ppc all the time (it cost money on the US site, but was free on the UK site :lol: )

I used past tense there cause my car was broken into last month and $2000 worth of my stereo and electronic equipment was stolen including my ipaq and bt gps :shock:

SmartphoneNotes is teh only program that syncs notes with outlook. But it currently is not certified to work on the i600 (Verizons restriction). The developer is working on it.

The weather app was updated. If downloaded from the developers website...it works. Handango's was not updated. It may be by now.

- mcTraveller (PC exe)

- SmartVNC (cab)

- ALL-Calculator (PC exe)

- eWallet (PC exe)

- SmartConvert (cab)

- SmartScreenShot (cab)

- SPVCube3d (exe)

- SPVPacMan (exe)

- RemoteDSP (PC exe)

All worked for me as well.

I think I need to change the topic to just the uncertified software that works/does not work on the i600.

Hi encece, I'm a new i600 user. What sort of luck have you had with homescreens so far? I keep getting errors about insufficient permissions. :lol:

Unfortunately, any homescreen that is in a CAB file will not work on the i600. Especially those that change the system screens. (Startup, shutdown, alerts, conformation, etc) These need to edit the registry and the i600 doesnt allow that. :cry:

You can utilize homescreens that are manually installed or in hme format. Try the XBOX theme, as an example.

The i600 patch solves the problem for the following:

PHM Registry Editor (CAB) (*)

Smart Explorer (installer)

Orneta Reader (installer)

Orneta Tester (installer)

Orneta Notepad (installer)

Connected Bits Weather (installer)

[note: if installer works, installation from CAB should work too]

(*) due to a known bug - in the PHM Registry Editor installer or somewhere else - the installer incorrectly installs the Pocket PC CAB on the Smartphone. So the only way to install PHM Registry Editor on a Smartphone is through the CAB.

The i600 patch does NOT solves the problem for the following:

SmartphoneNotes unlocked version (CAB)

Midnight's MoDaCo Themes (installer)

Not tested:

HIPftp (there is no public access to application, please email us the CAB if you want it tested)

> PocketTV ...but buggy as of 11/14/03 (encece)

What bug where you refering to ?

Apparently the current version of PocketTV does not have problems, except the one caused by this known issue, which applies to the i600 and also affects WMP and any other apps accessing data on the SD card.

Basically the problem occurs when trying to access the SD card in the 1.3 secs following the moment when the phone is flipped open. This is because during this period, the SD card is not yet powered-up and "mounted", after the i600 wakes-up from stanby (suspended) mode.

So if you play media content (audio or video) from an SD card, and you flip-close the i600, you must wait about 2 secs after you flip-open it again before you resume playing (regardless of the application you use!).

Ok, yes, I though it was only installing by dropping the exe, i did not see it was also in the first section.

So the only known installation problem remaining is with SmartphoneNotes, apparently ?

Referring to the phones bugginess...not the program.
