'rsawoseyin' - I can complain about the MDA Pro being bulky if I want to but I would be the first to agree with you that I shouldn't have bought it! The bulk was not a particular problem to me - it's the fact it's a piece of junk that's had to be sent for recycling. Anyone reading this is free to go out and buy a JasJar if they think it's right for them. Perhaps the iMate version is better than the MDA Pro. I can only comment on the Pro version.
I have had the JasJar for 10 months. In that period I have upgraded the ROM twice; I now have the latest ROM software, which is reasonably stable. My greatest annoyance with the phone is that the red letters on the keys are very hard to see. Red letters on a dark brown background are a very, very bad combination.
If after buying a phone you complain that it is bulky, then you have yourself to blame. The size or bulkiness of a phone is always obvious and if you didn't like the size, you should never have bought it in the first place!
there are som wrong
the jasjar have vga screen not tft lsd
and it's fantastic device
its a nice phone with very good reception,camera ,video result,ms world,nice lcd,hi speed wifi,greate to have this phone..if u doctor or engineer,or businessman prepare ur presentations on this greate phone,nice glamorous phone with every function u ever desire...its smal pc on the move..dont even hesitate to buy this greate machine...have a nice time
Imate is a very good phone..i've been using it since 1.5 months, i change my mobile phone very often within 10-15 days till date i have used about 57 handsets. But i m really satisfied with JASJAR..i don't see any reason to change this and buy a new one.
Hi, we are looking at upgrading to this phone, but have heard sometimes you can't hear the other person on the phone and they sometimes can not hear your clearly either.
So has anyone been having this problem or are all your voice calls crystal clear.
Very bulky, yet fragile. The screen hinge is flimsy and the USB socket on my version of the phone (T-Mobile MDA Pro) failed after only 6 months. A very poor design in my opinion. I'm probably biased in my dislike of this device but I would certainly not recommend it to anyone! The previous i-Mate phones I've owned have been fine but the JASJAR is a true turkey of a phone.
GOD bless this great device. It does everything i could dream of and more. My imate is now like part of the family and I could not live without it. If you want a great looking PDA with built in phone and wireless etc then this is for you. If you the type of person who is talking on the phone 27/7 then this is not for you . If you want something to manage your life and take phonecalls sometimes then run out and buy one now. Sure the price is high $2000 NZD here but belive me its well worth it . I LOVE U IMATE
hi there ,

I'm located in Sydney Australia and been using a Jasjar for about a month.
I wanted a single unit phone and PDA with a querty keyboard.
I'm using the Vodaphone 3G network and Optusnet for internet. Although Voda, who I bought the Jasjar from told me my internet would operate at Broadband speed, I'm yet to see it perform any better than dial-up speed! Any comments on this would be welcome.
I've found Active Sync V4.1 to be a hit and miss affair. Sometimes it syncs as soon as I connect the Jasjar to the PC via USB and sometimes it times out before updating any info! Is anyone having this problem? Also, syncing with Microsoft Outlook works with Calendar, Tasks, Files and Favorites but I can't get it to Sync to "Contacts," it remains greyed out during sync selections and settings. Neither Voda, I-mate or Microsoft can tell me why or how to rectify it. I don't believe Jasjar is compatable with "Contacts" in Outlook 2003!
Anyone have any comments on this issue? I've spent hours trying to make Active Sync to Outlook work better and more efficiently than it does.
Also I find it annoying that you cannot set a "repeat" notification sound for incoming SMS messages. If you miss that single beep you've missed an instant message!
I've had to do a Soft Reset on several occasions to make my notification sounds on Calendar appointments work. It seems to stop sounding for no reason and this can cause problems if you are counting on the sound to remind you of an appointment! It's obviously a fault in the unit.
Appart from these problems I have to say that as a PDA and Phone with Word, Excel, Powerpoint and the various fileing options and features, the Jasjar is a very neat and well finished unit.
I think I'll need to handle the hinged and swivelling screen with due care, and try to avoid turning on the camera everytime I take it out of my shirt pockethold, but appart from these minor setbacks I think I'll continue my love/hate relationship with the mighty Jasjar for the time being.
