The latest upgrade for the i-mate Pocket PC Phone Edition is now available for download. It includes Bluetooth and battery life enhancements, the latest fixes from Microsoft and the latest radio version.

The upgrade will erase all existing information on your device. It is strongly recommended that you synchronies your Contacts, Calendar, Mail and Tasks to your PC before upgrading your device.

The details of the new ROM image are:

  • Rom version 1.72.00wwe
  • Radio version 1.14.00


  • Improved Battery Life
  • Improved MMS client
  • Headset Bluetooth bonding improvements
  • Bluetooth throughput improvements
  • Latest Service Pack 2 from Microsoft
  • Service codes added to Speed Dials
  • Call Waiting sound
  • Latest Radio version

The upgrade is performed in two parts. Firstly upgrade the Operating System and Radio of the device as shown in Step 1. Then apply the customization to populate the device with your regional settings and new version of the software applications, like MMS.

The ROM update is available free of charge for i-mate owners, like PPCW.Net i-Mate customers and can be downloaded from Club i-mate! I haven't tested it so far because I'm currently playing with a different ROM... ;-)

Cheers ~ Arne
