Nokia users, stay out of this jasjar. If what you have been using were only normal dumb phones, the jasjar is not for you. It is not for the tech. illiterate. Meaning, it is not for the technologically "dumb" people who only knows how to operate an equally dumb Nokia. Do all yourself a favor stay away from Jasjar as far as you can. In fact run away from it.
This device is "THE" "it" in mobile wireless communications. It has got everything. Quality doesnt come cheap so be ready to shell out substantial bucks. But if you are like me who maxed out every functions it got, then you will get your money worth.
Those who are complaining about battery are the ones used to using only nokias. The jasjar's battery needs to be conditioned when bought so you can have the maximum battery life. How? in the first 5 charging, never use the supplied adapter. Instead use the USB charger. Never charge if it has 10% or more left to its juice. Charge only when its 10% below or fully depleted. Do this for 5 times and then charge it normally either by the normal charger or usb charger.
Update the rom always whenever its available, because this will mean that your jasjar will always be in tiptop shape. Those who are clueless on how to update the rom, consider yourself lucky and stay away from jasjar.
Do not install programs unnecessarily. Most programs are not made with WM5 in mind so its not optimized. In other words, it will slow down your jasjar.
Get a 4GB SD card and install programs to it. Keep the ROM and RAM in bare minimum, only to be used for ROM updates.
For those getting bad GSM reception, if you don't neet UMTS, disable it and set your radio to manual selecting only GSM. This will give you more battery life and better reception.
Lastly, visit xda-developers or howardforums to learn from the PPC-PE gurus there. If you are serious about the jasjar, you owe it to learn how to operate it. YOur current knowledge with NOKIA even with the 9500 doesnt count. In my opinion, no phone of Nokia are smart enough, like their users. Over and out....
I have had numerous problems with my jasjar.The second camera is giving a funny picture and the software keeps hanging.
I don't recommend it .

I am in Australia and just went to a shop to look at one of these JASJAR - I am looking to make a change to one since I dropped my Treo 600 somewhere I shouldn't have and it has not dried out !
My only question is one of phiscal strenght - the unit I saw in the shop had a very very very wobbly swivel connection between the body and the screen - is that common on all devices or was it perhaps a demo model that did not represent the real unit ?
I would really appreciate feed back from current owners....
I bought a Dopod 900. it has the same platform as the imate jasjar.the only problem was the battery life.so far I have been using it for months now the most serious problem that I have encounter so far is the phone does hang/crash once in a while.
well those who wants skype could download it at skype website. and for those who wants msn/icq/google/yahoo could download agile messenger.
overall its a nice phone for daily use =)
Which is better the Imate JASJAR or QTEK 9000 as far as out of the box....I know imate comes preloaded with Skype and Antivirus, but I am not sure if the qTEK does

Does anyone know where i can buy a GPS receiver for this phone? Does anyne know if it has a built in GPS Receiver installed? I want to install TomTom but i have been told i need a receiver for it to work. Please someone help :-) I am with Orange UK
well i've had this phone for about 4 months now, i love it. internal memory is lacking however with transcend making 4GB SD cards it is expandable substantially. the touch screen is responsive, the colors are crisp and the resolution (VGA 640X480) is beautiful. This phone has one drawback, it is a triband phone designed for europe. so reception with Cingular is lacking (no 850 mhz band/ which Cingular coverage is primarily). also the UMTS isnt suported by Cingular as it uses a global 2100 band and Cingular built on AT&T's 1900 so high speed internet won't be usuable with cingular. However if you are a T-Mobile customer, then i recommend this as T-Mobile uses the 1900 frequency primarily. also July 2006 T-Mobile will be bidding on the UMTS 2100 Mhz band which this phone supports) also this phone comes with Skype VIOP software built in, and a virus scanner provided by I-Mate.
I am going to buy this machine for my office and personal use. This machine sounds good to me but I am still worried about its usage and maintanance. Kindly advice me if this phone is good hit?

I hope this helps u all. Its the only link you need.
Hi,i wonder if there is someone who had trouble to connect Wi-FI???EVERYTHING else is beautiful thoug,but this one is bad........
the O2 XDA Exec/JASJAR is not for pda/phone illerates. There is a huge learning curve with this phone especially if your in the USA and not using company the phone was designed for. 1. Win Mobile 5 is not like Win XP, you have to learn how to config and optimize it. Its like that on all PDA's. 2. You will need to learn how to update the ROMs and Win Mobile. If you're not a tech/computer geek this can become overwhelming with all the various roms and updates. These updates fix issues with the phones which most people complain about. 3. Again don't think you can use any pda right out of the box on any service without doing an UPDATE! you're going to have problems regardless. 4. in comparsion to the Treo, Sidekick, the MDA, the phone is just about the same size. It's thinner than all and about .3-.5 inches longer. which is really nothing. 5. it's an expensive device, so don't run out an get it just because it has Win Mobile 5 realisticly have a use for it. Everyone wants features on a phone but usually rarely do they use them. I had the motorola v3 razr and those the video recorder was cool, but honestly i used it probably 2-3times in the entire year that i had it.
Again you will have to LEARN how to use a new operating system and learn how to update your ROM regularly. If you want a stable device you have to do that, I've had to update ROMs on all my phones to get rid of minor glitches. No device is 100% perfect.
i called tmobile as was told it would work on there network. since the jasar works on there euro systems it'll work in the US. I should have my jasar tomorrow =)
