To SimonR.I'm glad you decided to downgrade from the JASJAR as it's plain to see you didn't know much about such a great device.Oh here's something for you.. ThunderHawk renders web pages in a 640 x 480 resolution.
This is great as a PDA - but lousy as a phone! Bought one, then sold it ASAP. Biggest single issue for me was when closed with the display hidden, none of the buttons light up when it rings. All too often I pushed the red telephone button instead of green to answer in dim lighting.
The phone interface I found a bit clumsy compared to most mobiles.
The battery life was also very poor. I got less than 24 hours with 3G disabled, just using GPRS. With 3G the standby dropped to 4 hours (we are in a weak area though).
Lastly, it has a 640x480 display - which is great - but it is only used in that resolution by the media player. The web browser renders the pages in 320 x 240 resolution - Why????
I've gone back to using my old SPV C500 which is great as a phone and lousy as a PDA - but I need a phone more often!
acctually if U want 2 know witch of them is better...I PREFER JASJAR...because the LCD is bigger than jasjam and jasjar supports SD memory that U can buy one for your mobile that it is 8 GB :O but jasjam just support MICRO SD memory that it is not contain 8 GB at all...I think the camera of both are simillar some...because you can get a pic with your jasjar with 1600*1200 pixel (JUST LIKE 2 MP) just here is a problem and that is JASJAR IS 2 big BUT JASJAM ISN'T but after all I prefer JASJAR because I bought one in about 6 month ago and it is realy realy realy POWERFUL with full abilithy ;)
The device is absolutey outstanding.P910,p990 or any other pda can't compete with the jasjar's browsing ability.To reap the benefits of this superb piece of kit it is essential to install a good file manager*Resco explorer* also to optimise the memory install memmaid,pocket mechanic,tweaks2k.net etc.To realise the potential of the cpu look for a program called pocket hack.The list of applications available for this ppc is massive-wmobiletorrent,pocketmusic,core player,opera,netfront,minimo....really I could go on forever!
If you are choosing between JasJar and Qtek9000, go for the Qtek. The two devices are identical except that the Qtek has a more readable keypad while you would strain your eyes to read the red-on-brown characters on the JasJar keypad. It was for this reason I just bought the Vodafone V1640 after living with the JasJar for 1 year. The Vodafone is the same except that it is silver coloured.
This is a great phone everything you need to work outside the office, camera is good, options are great … the only problem that I found is the battery, it dies quick …. So if you planning to buy it, you might have to but a separate battery ….other than that is a great phone
hi, few quetions.
1/ can we trasfer images and videos through bluetooth.
2/can saved images can be see full screen and at what level it can be zoomed
3/ is browsing in this device is better than se p910
I'll say it again, for the benefit of those considering buying the JasJar: In my view, the greatest flaw with the device is the choice of color of the additional characters on the keypad. It is very hard to see the red characters on a dark brown background. If you love the JasJar, look for another clone of the same device - like the Qtek 9000. These have silver keypad with easy-to-read characters.
i read that some people find it difficult to use it and simply abuse, Boss understand the features and then talk...
i am using GPRS and want to use my jasjar to check my emails at hotmail through Pocket MSN software, the problem i am facing is;
if first of all i connect MSN Messenger, later i wont be able to send my emails (having attachments around 100kbs or more).
if i signout from my MSN Messenger then i can post my emails "through Hotmail Email option in pocket MSN".(itried to send emails having attachments less then 100kbs and its work ok) but as if i received an email greater then 500-600kbs, always recvd an error message and email attachment not opened.
is it only the matter of my GPRS connectivity or speed limits??? or is it a problem with my Jasjar??? even the memory in my jasjar is quite enough empty.
Pls if anyone have any solution or suggestion pls email also at my direct email address "firstname.lastname@example.org"
I just bought i-mate JASJAR. Its Fantastic, Large Display, Excellent sound and fully loaded with all things that u need. The only problem i am facing is the battery time, fully charged battery only work 24 hrs :(. does anyone facing this problem too ?
I have used the JJ for over a year with a 2Gb SD card. I have only occasional problems with it hanging. I ActiveSync (using MS AS 4.5 beta at the moment) daily Calendar, Contacts & Notes. I suggest that you ensure that you are using a stable and up to date version of ActiveSync (4.2 was also good). Use the same version on every PC you sync' with if you sync with more than one.
My problems alwys resolve with a soft reset (next to USB port).
Also check how much memory you use with the camera. IMHO the camera button is poorly designed and can be activated accidentally, creating large files which can stall the system as it reaches maximum capacity (saving to an SD card could reduce this risk).
Finally despite claims by manufacturers, some software is not compatible with MS Win Mob 5 - I would remove all non-standard software and se if the problems persist.
hey guy im going to buye jasjar do u guys advice me not to do it. why its so bad
Bought JJ few months back with very few Third Part Programs installed on the memory card, but now a days the software is HANGING very often (while I am working on the phone the screen goes vooosh....blank, it tries activate but no use keep turning on and off)and device does not start after that :( Every time I have to give it to the agent for the software upload.
Please can any one advise:
1) if this HANGING problem is very common, and we have to live with that!
2) Also, the Imate agent told me that with exceptions to the contacts I should not Sync. or restore any data (Calendar, E mail etc)as doing this causes the HANGING. Files should be cut / copy and paste (PC to JJ and vice versa) is it true? Any one knows alternative solutions for Sync.?
Frankly if the problems continues I will be having no other choice but to sell it and buy Nokia Communicator!
