I have a problem wih my Asus M930, I have try to update with the new firmware V4.5... more1. Factory reset your phone
2. Run the update program
3. If it fails do not disconnect the phone from your PC just retry the update.
Mine took three attempts to update.
I have since updated four other phones of this model with no problems. I think it was the factory reset that fix the problem.
Please, make the same phone, but with one screen like the interior here and no QWERTY keyboard!!!
i cant make groups so that i can message to many. i dont find any site where i can find games and other software like call recorder. i think this are the basic functions.
I have a problem wih my Asus M930, I have try to update with the new firmware V4.5.7 but failed and the result is back to the default setting but unfortunately the phone status become off and I Cann't reactivated again, is there any one who can help me please send to my email email@example.com

m930 even with the latest firmware version 4.5.7, you must remember that the Microsoft Office features in Asus M930 (after the migration process into Windows Mobile 6.1) limited only for editing matters not creating the new files. The trick is : You can create several master templates for Microsoft Office Files in your memory card then you can save as different name with your own custom after editing process. But for me it's not healthy and simple :), and this is the only freedom we can get from m930.
Also the keyboard in reference with your need of MS-OFFICE editings; for me it's not so ergonomic (for the fast typewriting person you should make the keypad response faster into 1/2 second at least). The keypad so small (after typing around 12 words, I used to get inaccurate typing). You should let yourself get used to it for a while, but afterall it's just a small keypad not a complete keyboard.
A professional commercial application such as 'OfficeToGo' can be an substitute alternative, eventhough it costs a few more dollars to be spent. Beware about the compatibility issues between officetogo and MS-OFFICE mobile in real practice.
What abt the MSFT EXCEL application? have any1 tried t yet? S t easy to work on it.. I'm planning to buy this n a couple f days...
Please.. this is urgent.. gv me the best features and the drawbacks f this SMRTPHoNE

I had my problem solved with 4.5.7 firmware. In order to avoid the same problem as I had and to complete the firmware upgrade process perfectly, be sure to remove the simmcard and the memory card also. After that charged the m930 to the maximum battery capacity.
For the windows xp users Let the active sync, the firmware 4.5.7 software and your precious winxp box do the rest.
My final conclusions are m930 is not the best design communicator ever cause the qwerty keypads don't have an ergonomic touch in my fingers, also m930 has inherited the battery issues as the other windows mobile devices; but m930 is the affordable device in price and in features-if you can forgive the couple of days only battery lifetime after last recharged and can make a peace with the sometimes unexplained hang problem (just make sure reboot the device once in a couple of days, I don't know why it works for me).
Goodluck everyone. Currently I'm planning to keep the device a little bit longer.

there are lots of complained statements about the battery life of windows mobile devices, I'm one of them. The temporary solutions are reducing the brightness of screen until 30%, always upgrade to the latest firmware which mine is 4.5.7 (for Singaporean,Indonesian dan Indian users), sometimes you should also check the task manager whether you've programs which consume too much memory (kill it or live with dried battery with it), the rest is up to you ;).
My m930 standby mode should stand 2 days after last recharged battery (that's the fact dude, not based on the phone reviews!)
Remember remove your simm card and memory card, when you're upgrading the latest firmware 4.5.7, otherwise you should've the exact same problem with my last post.
Try to find patches for windows mobile you can find at least three patches so far cmiiw. My additional suggestion for the stability matter, try to find a software to review you memory capacity, when you've only 90% of the maximum capacity try to reboot the device (mind it you should recharged it again, because one reboot could consume at least 10% of battery life capacity).
Goodluck, is up to you Sanjay.
Hi, am planing to but ASUS M930, its on sale for INR 15000, what do you suggest? my purpose is to use most of the applications avalable in it, is it worth investing 15k on it? plz reply
After upgrading the latest firmware version 4.5.7, sometimes I have problem when tryin' to contact number from my phonebook. Some of the contacts from my phonebook can't be dialed correctly. I can't hear a voice from the dialed person. But unfortunately the generousity of my phone pulse charge can't be compromised. Every unanswered calls from the otherside party always becomes a phone pulse killer. How about new firmware ? Goodluck Asus
i have same experiences with one user in this comment about upgrading Software from WM6 to WM6.1
