LOADED: Windows Mobile related Events here and there
Posted by Carlo Guerrero - at 22:10 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Well, as you might notice, there seems to be a slow down in PPCW.Net. But the truth is, there has been so many things happening. Last Thursday, a group from the MoDaCo Forum wanted to meet up and the main discussion tackled in the meeting was, "What's with the new ROMs for the Smartphone."

For those who are running the new PPCW.Net i-Mate ROM, you might have noticed that there are loads of improvements and really cool features which we've always wanted Microsoft to include in them. Well, apparently there were some which weren't even documented for us users.

COMMENT: Guess your task feature fixed with i-Mate ROM 1.50.8.6
Posted by Carlo Guerrero - at 21:40 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Well this might have been something which I have overlooked, and probably taken for granted. The latest ROM for the i-Mate dfinitely shows significant improvements with regards to the implementation of the user interface unique to the Windows Powered Smartphones. Of course we've mentioned the obvious fixes which are a fully functional character/SMS counter and the ability to send SMS to any phone entry in th Coctacts list.

Adding the obvious power management tweaks plus the overall improvement in stability makes tis ROM a must have for every PPCW.Net i-Mate user. Well, something else seemed to have popped out from this ROM update. A buddy of mine, Norbert, who is also from the Philippines recently upgraded his ROM to the PPCW.Net i-Mate ROM 1.50.8.6 and called my attention to another fix which apparently was made in this version.

QUESTION: Why does the GPRS attach disturb GSM signalization in some networks?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 15:52 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Okay - I have to admit that this is a super high level question and topic but I hope that some of the PPCW.Net visitors and readers can answer this.

According to my server logs I have daily visitors from Nokia Networks, Ericsson Networks, Nortel Networks, Alcatel as well as from many GSM carriers from all over the world so if you are a technician, in charge for GPRS and or signalization (keyword SS7 ;-)) please read the complete story below and share your knowlede with us.

Some users from different GSM/GPRS carriers reported in several web boards (like andrew.j here in the PPCW.Net Forum) that GPRS attach disturbs the basic GSM functionalities like receiving calls or SMS:

THOUGHT: The good, the bad, the cab or how to screw up your phone
Posted by Arne Hess - at 08:30 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Yesterday evening I've updated my daily PPCW.Net i-Mate to the recently released PPCW.Net i-Mate ROM update and as with every Pocket PC and Smartphone updates - it's completely erasing all data from your device - similar to "format C:" on your PC.
While the update process went well (normally, if you do everything as described the update shouldn't went wrong anyway) and after such an update you have to install all files, apps and programs on your device again.

Normally this isn't a big deal. If the applications you are going to install came with a PC .exe you can simply select them from ActiveSync again.
