Well ive had the new one for like 10 months now or something and yes the camera is crappy and the processor may seem sluggish sometimes but if given the chance to rethink my purchase, id buy it again!.
Recently as Peter pointed out, after 10 months of heavy service its audio died without notice and i had to use vibrate. i just gave it back to be repaired, which they promised to do within 2 business days. ill go pick it up tonight.
Great Phone!, even after almost a year its still cool and not an embarrasment at ALL to carry around
I bought this phone 4 months back. It is a wonderful phone. Owners shd know this:
1) there is some inherent problem with the speaker phone volume and i had to replace the chip. It was not too expensive, but the phone has been working perfectly since then.
2) screen alignment problems sometime are a hassle. They used to trouble me a lot in the beginning, but i have not had a problem for the last 2 months now. The screen responds perfectly to taps. I would suggest not use the Screen Lock feature and the transcriber. If you use the keypad (you can switch to bigger keys through a setting) regaularly, it will start working perfectly over time.
3) you need to explore the phone. There are a lot of wonderful options that make life simpler while on the move. You can open any application through a voice command. You virtually dont need to use the hand.
But yes, the internal memory seems to be low. doesnt allow a lot of applications to be installed. You can, however always install new ones on the SD card.
Overall, a nice phone.
overall look wise is a good phone, but the processor is very slow and if we store heavy ringtones the memory get occupied. big draw back. less battery time. less internal memory. low speaker volume. less stable camera due to absence of flash. no fm radio. no stereo speakers. handsfree so outdated. call id picture so small and no software available to increase the size. any many more issues. but its a phone which can be used by a very expert sort of a person who can get in depth.
I bought my Imate Jamin six months ago. First months was to learn phase how to use it. If you want to use your phone by one hand, it is not for you. (especially in traffic, you can not talk or answer). Screen alignment problem killed me after two months and still same. It was 800 USD when I bought and now nobody pays 200 USD. I do not recommend that model!
i use this device. when i lock it, the phone part can not ring out. if device is turned off, the lock is automatically unlocked. the problem i am having is that if i accidently hit one of the buttons on the front the phone auto dials out. is there any way to make the device such that even if it is turned off, that to make a call you have to unlock the device. i need to have the phone part on all the time to receive calls so do not want to turn off the phone part of the device
Has anyone else also experienced the problem of volume when the phone rings. Mine is very low even at it's highest level. any solution?
I was satisfied during almost 2 years until recently now it gives me screen alignment problems all the time several times a day...
I am going to check if it is still on warranty so I can have it replaced.
in reply 2 post calling this win mob junk. The comments are absolutely false and based on lack of knowledge. regarding slow speed, use OMAP clock 2 safely increase speed upto 234 mhz. Rest I have been using this ppc mob for last 6 months and performance is wonderful, keeping in mind the specifications this set was designed. I have never hard reset this phone, bc its so stable. before this I had jam, which was awsome, but features of wm5 were absent.
junk junk junk junk junk. terrible telphone audio, unstable processor....overall about 2/10. dont buy this junk.
I just bought this phone yesterday and I must say Im amazed. Everything rocks.....the speakerphone, the applications, every dam thing is awesome and it looks also sexy!! My only issue is that I was using a Nokia communicator (9500) before this and I dont know how to transfer my messages to this phone!! I need help with that, otherwise, I would recommend any person to go for this phone as it is really good!!! Yo Imate!!
i don't know what to say, of course it's an amazing PocketPC but it's really has a lot of problems and some of them are mentioned before :
- screen alignment : the screen doesn't correctly recognize your click on it. i solve this problem by not using the Unlock option and the phone works well
- when i used softwares like SpbTime, Spb Pocket Plus the alarms (of the pocket pc not the SpbTime) goes crazy, i make them all off but they are working till now !!!
- SPEAKER GOES OFF : it doesn't work and when i press on it, it works and goes off again. please help me in this issue.
anyway, i like this phone very much, although all of these problems. I think there're some kind of people who would like a phone like this, if u r one of them buy it, else u will hate it.
Most troublesome phone I've ever had. Main problem: screen needs to be realigned at least 10 times a day! Very frustrating. The red "Call end" button doesn't always work, the screen sometimes freezes. I don't recommend this phone at all

I have had to swap (for new)the JASMIN 4 times: 1. Stopped responding (despite ful reset, etc.) 2-4. Three times because problem with Screen alignment....
Finally, Mobile Co.(Telstra) said they would send the 5th one away for repair because...screen alignment. Still waiting after 3 months!!
I adding another dissatisfied customer.
Soon after purchase - screen constantly loses alignment (can fix by re-aligning).
After 3 months - sound died ( i am making do with vibrate).
Reccomend avoiding Jamin (shame, has so many features).
