  1. Yep, decided to give WM6 a shot after becoming rather jaded with the whole Windows Smartphone thing a while back. Have to say that I'm deeply impressed with my new Touch HD...it's relegated my SE P990i to the position of "Expensive alarm-clock" :( Yep, 3rd time lucky, it seems. /Chris

    Indeed it is :( It's good to be back, I'd quite forgotten what a great place Modaco is B) /Chris

    T9 Dictionary

    Same here, it seems to do it from time-to-time, not always...
  4. Ayup all, I'm very interested in getting hold of an Asus P525, it's more-or-less exactly what I want from my next phone. Problem is, I can't find anywhere to buy one...any of you good people give me a hint about where I can get one online? Expansys claim that I can only place a pre-order :-o Cheers Chris : )
  5. Well, in the end I got fed up with trying to locate one and bought a Sony Ericsson P990i instead - not a decision I regret :-)
  6. Yep, new scandinavian ROM's here. Seems they've solved a couple of minor irritations, but no great advances as far as I can see. Worth upgrading? Not for me right now, but anyone who can be bothered is very welcome to post any improvements that might be noticed :-)
  7. Just follow the decert routine here: http://www.modaco.com/Cingular_2125_Everyt...ow-t235408.html The applock's always reinstated after installing a ROM upgrade.

    Menu doesn't appear

    Yep, I've had the same problem a couple of times after installing the Mac OSX theme. Nice thing about this theme is that I managed to live without the start menu for a while due to the Shortcut bar at the bottom of the homescreen. Now I've updated to the AKU2 firmware and the problem hasn't repeated itself (touch wood). Shame that the OSX theme seems to cause some kind of problem - it's otherwise very cool indeed. Maybe it could be the RJShortcut plugin that's causing the prob? -- Chris : )
  9. Umm. AFAICS you have the Dangaard ROM - you version numbers are the same as mine, which is the official (Dangaard) update available from smartmobil.no or www.qtek.dk..... -- Chris : )
  10. Try and register at www.qtek.dk with your IMEI # - if you can, then your 8310 is distributed by Dangaard and the ROM update should work fine; if you get a message that the IMEI is invalid then it could be that TDC get their 8310s via Brightpoint - if so, you can register at www.qtek.nu and download the correct ROM from there. The update available on smartmobil.no/qtek.dk defaults to English, and includes danish, finnish, swedish, slovak, norwegian, hungarian, dutch and french. -- Chris : )
  11. I've just downloaded the 8310 ROM from the same site. My ROM has English, danish, swedish, finnish, slovak, norwegian and a couple more. I think that most ROM versions have english as a default. Another thing: I can now log-in to www.qtek.dk in order to download F/W updates etc. with my (suddenly valid ;) ) IMEI number. I suppose that Dangaard mark the IMEI as active once they know that the phone's been sold on by the retailer. So, to anyone in Denmark having trouble with an invalid IMEI #: try to register at qtek.dk a couple of times a week until they've registered your phone as active.... -- Chris : )
  12. Heh :-) Excellent stuff - worked a treat. Had a bit of a scare the first 2 times I ran the update; the PC-app crashed having restarted the phone and gone to bootloader, but 3rd time lucky :P One little thing about the update process: it seems so old-fashioned. I was updating my son's PSP on the weekend, and that update process is just excellent. It saves all volatile data to the PSP's Memory Stick before updating then sticks it all back afterwards - really cool and a massive time-saver. Never mind, glad it worked with the 8310 anyway. Now I can have hours of fun setting the phone up - again ;) Thanks once again, pawr. -- Chris : )
  13. That's just great, pawr - yer a star :-) You must have eyes like a s**thouse rat, because I couldn't find this one :-) Strange thing # 152,076: Telecare - the company which I'm told to contact for servicing according to my IMEI - seem to be owned by Dangaard; yet my IMEI still comes up as invalid on Dangaard's site. Weird ;) I'll post here with the result of the update after I've got around to it... -- Zom : )
  14. Hmm, this sounds a little more encouraging :-) I've got operator # 1.5.311.2 Anybody know if the update pawr links to will work? And are the updates for certain languages like the old SPV? It's not like I'm desperate to update - phone's working fine, more or less - but the simple fact I've ended up with a phone that can't be updated is getting on my nerves and set a challenge :-) Cheers
  15. Yep, done. Now the only problem is getting a UK/NORDIC ROM with Danish; the links here only seem to point to ROMs that have swedish and/or Norwegian AFAICS. Hmm
  16. Hmm. My Qtek 8310's IMEI # is invalid for all the above mentioned d/l sites as it wasn't distributed by any of these firms - it was bought last week in Zitech Computer, Frederiksberg, Copenhagen. Weird. Anyone have any ideas about this? I'm buggered if I'm taking it to a service centre for updating :-/
  17. ...and it's excellent ;) A small problem, tho' - The IMEI won't register as valid on any qtek site so I can't get on to the MyQtek thingy :-/ Apparently, my particular phone wasn't distributed by Brightpoint.... I mean, what kind of crap is that? Anyone know anything more about why this should be the case? According to qtekcorp.com, I have to take the bugger in to a service centre should I want a f/w update, for example. Somewhat ridiculous that Qtek differentiate between 'phones from different suppliers; they still made the thing... -- Chris : )
  18. Fantastic post for the app unlocking dude ;) I was on the brink of kicking the crap out of my brand-new Qtek 8310 - it should have been unbranded and unlimited in all respects....
  19. Hey all - well, having seen my girlfriend's C500 and how reliable it is, I've decided that my new phone's going to be a Windows Mobile device (after a 2-year flirtation with Symbian/an SE P900) The choice seems to be between a Qtek 8300/8310 - even though some of the PDA phones are very cool, I have a habit of breaking them rendering the touchscreen utterly useless :-) Just posting here to hear you opinions on the above phones - WLAN is *very* important - but any other suggestions will be well-received :-)
  20. Instructions for de-certing if you're experiencing problems -- Edit 19.05.2003: Dutch users may find this link helpful: http://www.developers.orange.com/forums/sh...php?threadid=22 Thanks to Martin for the tip. -- Edit 23.04.2003: A (seemingly) UK-specific update from fozzie here: Decert site can now be found here http://developer.orangews.com/orgspv/comdef.aspx So all you UK-types that have been having problems: give this a try. -- This guide was mainly written for those who've been having problems with getting the official de-cert process to go through; I'm not especially an expert, the hints posted here are simply the best results of a lot of my trial-and-error attempts to get a couple of SPVs de-certed :lol: Note: It may be necessary to establish a GPRS connection before you start trying this de-cert process - Action Register needs to make a short data call to register with Orange's SPV-database, I assume, and it doesn't always do this on it's own. Be sure to establish a new GPRS connection after you've done with the de-cert process. First of all, disable any popup stopper apps you have running. If you're using Norton Internet Security, temporarily disable this too. Go to the normal Orange Official De-cert link. When asked for your details, try typing the number in this format: +45[space]xxxxxxxx Type your IMEI in the appropriate field. Press OK. If you get the error, go to the phone number field, type in some text nonsense, do the same in the IMEI field. Press OK. You'll get taken to a page where you can download a registration app (Action Register) to your SPV. On this page you'll need to type in your phone number in the format: +xx[space]xxxxxxx Do this and then run Action Register, following the instructions on the above page. N.B. It seems that there are some inconsistencies with the format of the telephone number required by Action Register - it may be that you don't need to type the country-code at all as this seems to get added automatically. Obvious, really, though I used the country code on my own SPV and the process went through OK. Action Register should then report "Phone registered" Go online via GPRS to any webpage. ;) Now you can restart your popup stopper app and get to work configuring your NIS settings properly :( If the above doesn't work for you within 5 minutes, try again - check that *all* the phone numbers you type in are the same. Once you've done the above, you'll *not* need to use this method again to de-cert, for example when you hard reset or install an update. After completing the above, the phone will be registered with Orange and the de-cert page will work properly every time thereafter. EDIT: Easier to read, more precise & Torben's correction. GPRS tip. Number format request. Title change, the problems don't only occur in Denmark.
  21. Hej folkens, Så er modacos dansk-sproget forum endelig på plads. Alle spørgsmål på dansk bedes stillet i dette forum for at undgå støj og misforståelser på de andre fora. Ufatteligt men sandt - der findes nogle folk der *ikke* læser dansk : ) Oversættelser af indlæg (og forespørsler derom) må også meget gerne postes hér. Go' fornøjelse :lol: Chris : )

    T9-nightmare (again)

    Hmm. Yesterday I hard-reset my SPV, had to because I dropped it and then it wouldn't write text *at all*. Well, the T9 hasn't worked for ages, so I guessed the hard reset would clear this prob. too (every cloud....), but the T9 still won't learn words. Does anyone have a clue why this might be? It's *really* beginning to annoy me.... :lol:
  23. OK lads and ladies. This is as far as I've got with MS portrait. Hope you lot can use it if you get stuck: Download it here: http://research.microsoft.com/~jiangli/portrait/ Update: There's a new version of MSP for Smartphone available from the above link - same version number (2.1) but the SP code is new. Thanks to Arne Hess at www.ppcw.net for this info. Installation: The Installer *doesn't* install Portrait to your SPV - you need to use the manual method; navigate to your PC's Program FilesMicrosoft ActiveSyncMicrosoft Portrait directory. Right-click and copy the portraitSP.ARM.CAB file. Paste this file to your SPVs IPSMWindowsStart MenuAccesories folder, then launch it from there. It'll install as normal. Usage (what I've discovered so far): I can make a call from my SPV to my PC (use www.myip.dk if you don't know what your PC's IP is) I can call my SPV from my PC *after* I've done the above. Orange's GPRS server also acts as a proxy which conceals you SPV's real IP #. MS Portrait can be configured to use a proxy too, it's just a matter of getting which IP address your proxy has and which port # MS portrait is using. Port numbers for MSP: Listen port: 8100 Video port: 8110 Audio port: 8120 These ports will *need* to be open in your PC's firewall, and they will also need to be open for anyone you contact - make it so. Do the same for your SPV's proxy server - that address is also available by visiting www.myip.dk from you SPV. Remember to use your GPRS connection :) I can see my PC's webcam on my SPV I can hear both ways - PC on SPV and vice versa. What I can't do: See pics from the SPV's camera on my PC - there doesn't even seem to be an option to use the cam. on the "Tools" menu. Maybe in a later release. What I haven't tried: SPV to SPV messaging - anyone wants to give it a try throw a PM my way. So there's a bit of info for you lot to munch on - anyone have any ideas or updates, send me a PM.
