  1. I ordered one of these but don't have my phone yet so not sure on the fit. I liked that it charges right from the outlet. http://www.netimes.com/shop/cigarette-ligh...ml?cPath=80_731

  3. I knew there had to be a way to get My Location working on the Saga. After all it works on an ipod touch. So here you go! For those of us with locked down gps chips, you can use wifi triangulation. It took me a while to figure it out because I got it work sporadically and not consistently. Took a while to figure out what I wasn't doing right. Here's how to do it. Download and install the latest version http://www.google.com/gmm Turn on wifi Run google maps and push the blue locate me button. Sounds stupidly simple huh? Well here's the trick. Make sure you are NOT connected to any wifi hotspot. This is what took me a while because I have an Ad hoc network setup that gets connected to by default for tethering. The easy fix is set the wifi to only connect to access points. What this does is keeps the wifi adapter searching for access points continuously. That info is then accessible to GM. If you get a message saying your location is temporarily unavailable, fear not because it is working but can't find you at the moment. If you get a message saying it appears that your handset is not compatible, you either don't have wifi on or you have it on but are connected to a hotspot. I know this isn't as good as gps and doesn't work in the boonies but at least it opens the door for doing location based searches in GM until VZW sees clear to open the gps chip. Cheers!
  4. Pray for us poor Saga folks that we too will be blessed with a working gps... I'm lost without it. :excl:
  5. This is a defect in the WM6.1 implementation of pop. Use IMAP.
  6. The VZW version is locked down too and only works with VZnav. The Sprint version seems to work fine from reports.
  7. www.skyfire.com browse almost any content included embedded video.
  8. I have a MotoQ and v1.72 never shows up as a drive letter at all on XP SP2. v1.73 comes up with a drive letter but as an empty drive. I dug up version 1.32 and it works fine. FYI...
  9. You probably need an updated version. I ran into this too. Did you know the Q already has office viewers? And go check out Ptab! You can edit excel.
  10. If the battery goes 100% dead the phone memory will be erased and you will be left with an empty phone and need to sync it again as I recall.
  11. Oxios todo list is out there too. Crashes sometimes but is very comprehensive.
  12. I know this is a really old thread but people are still finding non-upgraded i600 phones and wanting to go to WM2003. Since the links above are dead, you can go to http://www.larsdennert.com/misc and click on smartphone for the verizon version of the files.
  13. Personally, I love the ignore user function...
  14. Yea I didnt' actually try the link. I see it's possible to create it but it doesn't work. How typically microsoft...
  15. I've had an i600 for about two years here in LA. All the cell providers are now charging a fortune for data/internet. Many non-smartphones now sync with outlook too. It's making my smartphone obselete. The newer ones have wifi and BT which is nice.
  16. I think the easiest way is to activesync it to a pc, explore the phone from the pc and create the link using the pc. Normally from the phone you point to a file object, press copy, go to the destination and paste shortcut.
  17. Well you can get almost free internet but it uses minutes. On the weekends and nights it would be free if your min are unlimited for N&W. Assuming you have regular internet service for your PC just program the smart phone with the dialup number, user name and pwd you use on your PC. Then set that as the default Inet connection. It works here in Los Angeles. The speed is only 14400 and it seems to hang the radio stack on my i600 after hanging up on WM2003. Didn't do that with 2002. Then you have to power cycle. It's the only choice for longer data sessions as VZW charges $15/MB on their service. RAPE!
  18. Since the phone is pretty slow anyway and I only use it as a modem when there's no wifi, I programmed it with the dial up service that comes with with SBC DSL. I think it's only 14400 and takes longer to connect but that's plenty. The phone usually chokes on large complex webpages and can't make use of the 1X service anyway. A laptop could easily though. Now I'm back to minutes only usage and therefore free nights and weekend internet. Showed those bastards. :evil: See Start, Settings, Data Connections, Menu, Edit Connections, Dialup, Menu, Add. Also set the time out under Options to 5min and the redial to 2. Then select your new connection as the default.
  19. I still have all the files on my server at http://www.larsdennert.com/misc and click on smartphone. THIS IS THE VERIZON UPGRADE. I did mine no problem but you have to follow the instructions exactly. any deviation in order and your fired. PDAphonehome.com has a bunch of stuff. I hate verizon. They sneaked away my data plan and started charging me an arm and a leg.
  20. Anybody know of a way to properly lock the smartphone after a set period? Is there a third party program or hack? I tried the device lock feature in the phone and set it to 60 minutes but the phone still locks itself shortly after closing the cover instead of waiting 60 minutes. Annoying.
  21. Leave the folder/phone open while its docked and it won't sleep on you. Folding it shut or having it shut eventually sleeps it.
  22. You also need ActiveSync 3.70 and the Samsung drivers. Follow the instructions exactly and you will be rewarded with success. Overall I like the upgrade. Two out of three phones went smoothly for me. The upgrade is free but having someone do it for you costs $15. Not an outrageous sum considering the potential headache should something go wrong.
