Can anyone please help me on how to upgrade from Windows Mobile 5.0 to Windows Mobile 6.0, I will be very thankfull.
been using my jasjam for over a year now and everything is still working well. dropped it once and to my surprise it wasnt effected at all except for a tiny scratch. the baterry life is ok, had it set to automatically turn off after 3 minutes of standby. hav installed some useful applications and the unit is handling them well. good management of the jasjam i think is all u need to get the most out of this fine pda.
We bought two JasJam's as I liked the oversized keys for typing emails over a Blackberry. I returned mine ( my carrier says after three repairs they take it back and cancel the contract) I opted for a Palm Treo 750. 1. The JasJam screen would often freeze and required rebooting to fix it. 2. The software would often reset itself. All of sudden the ringtone would change all by itself. 4. The "notification" message in the bottom left side of the screen when an SMS had been received would sit on top of the "Unlock" tab on the screen so I was unable to unlock the screen to get the new message. The phone was hopeless as well. If a call came through, while I was removing the unit from the pouch if the keyboard slid out it would bump the call to my voicemail, So annoying. I was happy to get rid of it and am not surprised they have all been returned in NZ. The other JasJam is till running but the end of the stylus snapped off leaving the bulk of it in the phone. All in all we are just waiting for the contract on the other one (Dec ) to run out and will get rid of it asap.
Let me know what's the updated and/or latest ROM version of JasJam? Is this stable and make the unit faster. I would appreciate your help in this matter.
Further update. I have now returned the I-Mate JasJam. Apparently in NEw Zealand, all the JasJams have now been withdrawn from sale by I-mate (as opposed to being recalled). Found out that the HTC TYTN II is cheaper and with more features. Also looking at the Imate Ultimate which apparently is a lot better. Would strongly recommend either of these over the Imate Jas Jam for anyone who is interested.
Wogboy. Glad you feel that way! Since my last post, my phone has frozen for no reason and I have had to reboot it! I hope you still like your phone in a year's time! This seems to be when the hardware problems start, although I have heard that some phones have no issues at all, so maybe you are lucky! Here's to hoping!
Hi there. Well my brother and my best friend both bought JasJams awhile ago, and have had quite different experiences. I bought one yesterday to replace my PDA2K.
I have found the phone to be terrible. It's just little things that are going wrong, like:
-- Problems with the keyboard keys sticking
-- Connecting to a PC (sometimes it can't be reognised by the PC)
-- Not being able to delete contacts
-- Phone suddenly goes dark, and will not turn on
All these problems were solved by a softreboot, so after having had the phone for a day and setting it up, I had had to softreboot the phone at least 15 times!
My friend says that his phone performs ok, however to keep it that way he soft-reboots it every morning. He tried contacting Imate and got the latest updates from them (ones that are not even available on the website yet, as he's in the industry) and he said this did not help his problems at all.
My brother has had his Jas Jam longer, and is now having problems with the sound and other hardware devices. (his phone sometimes no longer rings or vibrates). These and other hardware issues seem to occur just outside the warrantee (1 year) period.
Talking to the major supplier of JasJams here in New Zealand, I found out that all of them (except the one I bought) have been recalled by Imate in November 2007. There are various speculations as to why, but I believe it to be a combination of their poor reliability over time, and the anticipated launch of their new Ultimate (which is still not available here in New Zealand yet, but this could be because it requires maps that might be not available yet).
One other thing I noticed, the Jas Jam was surprisingly slower to navigate and use than my old PDA2K! My friend also noticed the same thing.
Hope this helps people.
I reckon my JasJam is the best phone I have never bought. Never has given me a problem.
extraordinary thing but a little problem with outlook e:mails.Its GPRS/Outlook e:mails settings were not stored directly from service provider.you have to manage it manually.Help required
this is the worst phone which i ever bought . the day one i bought this . i am unable to connect to internet or skype . always it says check the connect or the address is not right . this is the worst exp where we dont get setting from the service provider too. I bought it for nothing.
I used to have a lot of problems such as lockups, slowness, programs not running after install on my I-mate JasJam.
But a couple of months ago I upgraded it to Windows Mobile 6 and all of the past problems I had disapeared straight away.
Even Skype works now which I couldn't get going on Windows Mobile 5, bluetooth doesn't zap the battery power and is stable.
In conclusion a lot of my problems came from Windows mobile 5 and its a great phone on WM6 !!
Dear doggz and to all Imate users having the same problem
you're absolutly wrong ,...
let me tell you what to do first of all usualy when you use a normal Personnel Computer you every 1 week or 2 you delete your cookies and the histories and the temporary files,..correct??? its the same with I-mate coz its a windows like the PC exactly so here out what to do and trust me you'll be fine
1- install Mobile anti virus "kaspersky is fine "
2- scan your device "what every you find the antivirus will guaranteed it.
3- its STRONGLY RECOMMENDED after every use of your Imate go to "start-setting-systtem-Memory-Running Programs- than click stop all".
trust me it will become a usual to you you just do this every time you use your device or let say 4 times a day every 6 hours and mention me in your praying.
Dear hafiz your problem very simple you just need to full format your mobile "you have missing some of the dll files" and reinstall the Imate software its on the Imate CD you've got it when you purchase your device or pass by any Mobile shop he'll do it for you

I came here before i bought the phone and left thinking it would be O.K, but the full on truth is that it is the worsed phone on the planet. My Advice is No1. If you do buy one, DONT buy it off of ebay, it is much easier to send it away for repair if it is on a plan and No2. Dont buy it at all just go for apples iphone its a much more reliable name and the reviews are better than this one.
Over all you would be waisting you money on the phone, mine has been sent away to the repairer about 4 times and still dosnt work properly.
