hi guys...im new at this and im planning to get an Imate jasjar and checked out the reviews to which i was impressed but my friends told me to go for the new imate jasjam instead which cost way more than the jasjar. but the cost doesnt isnt my concern depending on which of the 2 have better options. anyone!
My Imate JASJAR, or for Orange SPV M5000, its coming up with a message saying "No SIM". I have got my sim card in it. why is it doin this?
yes its possible 2 upgrade it to wm6...just visit www.xda-developers.com and check out the forums! youll find the links..
Please anybody to inform me that is it possible to upgrade Windows Mobile 6 on Jasjar.
After 18months of constant usage touchscreen on my jasjar is still working as it was when new.
Can someone who had this phone for over a year please tell me if the touchscreen is stil responsive, or it develop some delay in time. thanks
(Same person who posted the JasJar SP3 note)
Ps. Also had a work colleague who had a SP3i, and the left button and joystick button broke. I-mate gave him a loan phone....gues what.....a button broke on that one as well.
Colleague also has an HTC (the vertical slide one), and the motherboard also failed...after 6months!
You are so wrong!I've owned the HTC Universal for nearly two years and have found the build quality to be of a very high standard.Internal quality components-msystem chips,intel processor and so on.Two years later and Nokia are still producing devices packed with sub-standard components.
JASJAR: After 14 months of use, the sound (mic and speakerphone) stopped working. Sent it for repairs, and they said motherboard was bust. Cost around 800USD for a motherboard. Now I have a heavy paperweight!
SP3 - After 12 months of use, power button snapped, colour of cover was scrappy.
I-mate quality terrible. I would rather buy a less functional Nokia. At least they work for more than 2 years, with great support from their support centres!
Excellent device. I've been using my JasJar for a week now and I'm very happy. I was initially struck by the build quality, it feels very solid, and the silver/gun metal finish is lovely adds to this nicely. The VGA screen is excellent and displays fonts much smaller than I though it would be capable of. The camera is surprisingly good for 1.3mp. The tilt/swivel screen is well put together and doesn't feel like it's going to come loose during it's lifetime. Two small rubber stops cusion the screen when closed and once closed is not over easy to open. The keyboard is very usable both for use in-hand with thumbs but moreover on the desktop with fingers like a pocket laptop. A light-sensor switches on the keyboard backlight when ambient light is low but this can be disabled such that the backlight always comes on during keyboard use. The keyboard backlight is red as opposed to blue as per the XDA Exec (don't know about the Qtek). Battery life is perfectly acceptable/good with only the phone transciever activated (including overnight standby). Power is via mini-usb which is great as you have power from any computer and usb chargers are much cheaper than some proprietry chargers. Despite being larger and heavier than some other PDA's, the JasJar is still easily pocketable, even in a shirt pocket, if you don't mind the weight.
Small niggles: Softkeys are set for 'Calendar' and 'Contacts' and are not user-definable (that I've found). Pressing the 'Internet Explorer' button causes IE to go to the i-mate homepage even if IE is already open. Finally, sound quality from the built-in earpiece and speakers tends to distort easily and generally only reproduces higher pitch sounds. This detracts from the overall quality but is still perfectly usable as a phone whether on loudspeaker or normal use. The device was not supplied with the latest firmware. All my other niggles would be with WM5 limitations which will hopefully be solved with WM6. For those interested there is a working Linux port (but still a little behind WM5/6).
If you don't want Qtek or XDA Exec then the best price I found for the JasJar was from Inkino (mail-order and street presence).
Hope this helps.
Best WM6 ROM is here http://files-upload.com/192500....zi.zip.html
The Jasjar is still one of the best pocket pc's money can buy.In the right hands it truly is an amazing piece of kit.
