This jasjar is great! Have had it for 3 months and don't need to take a notebook with me anymore! I work in IT support and with Term services, vpn's, citrix client, etc plus Vodafones 3g , it's as if I'm at the customers site. It's never let me down - sync, etc is fine. Wireless is great. Took me a bit of time to work out best settings, etc and how it works to get most from it. - Downloaded Netfront browser, and Operas new browser. I can easily have multiple browser windows open on this, plus other stuff just like a PC. While travelling and flying, doing my invoicing, watch DVD's I've copied to sd card, etc. And keyboard is excellent. With bluetooth headset/LCD can make and get calls without toucjhing teh jasjar. All in all- can't ask for much more than that. My IBM thinlpad now stays on the kitchen table at home...
where is the build in analog tv tuner (pal and ntsc signals ). like gigabyte g-smart ?where is the stereo fm radio ?
Please can anyone help!!!! I am looking for a PDA that will print to a printer without the need for a laptop or PC.... Does the JasJar do this if not, can anyone recommend one that does!!! Thanks in advance.
Please mail me.
I see a lot of people are discontent with their jasjars. First of all let me tell you that this phone WAS NOT designed for people who just want to make a call to there friend and talk for a couple of hours.
I have owned this phone for almost 5 months now and I recently switched to the Motorola A780. For a smartphone the jasjar does its thing. The best features being WIFI. I have routed my IMAP AOL mail and pop3 yahoo to this phone. It works like a charm.
The battery life isn't the greatest. But thats the sacrafice you make to have a phone that does so much. I have this on a cingular plan. I did one of those 9.99 add a lines and added unlimited data.
It's a great second phone but not a primary. The reason why I switched to the a780 was because I realized I didn't use all the features of the phone. My needs were just a phone that does imap, pop3 and a basic pda functions. I never really used the wifi cause I would rather use my laptop.
Hello ppl, I am professor of electronix at Carleton Unicersity in Ottawa. I was gifted this phone by microsoft a month ago. So far I did not have anoy problem with it except the battery consumption. Mine does not last more then 8 hours and it takes about 2-3 hours to recharge. So far, its an awesome technology :)

I 've serious problem with the my I-Mat Jas-Jar regarding synchronization each time I connect it with both desk & laptops. Each time I 've to unistall and re-install b4 I can synchronize. I have tried even 4.1 active-sync software but to no soccur!
Can anybody send me how to resolve this insistence problem. Is this problem peculiar with me only or is a general problem?
i wanna know for those who bought it does it contain radio and what is thee most amzaing feature it contains
Try before your buy. if i did, i wouldn't have bought one. there are better value for money devices out there.
It's not very good as a phone, with the bad reception it gives (compared to other phones).. But an excellent PDA!!! Camera could have been better (1.3 mega pixel?), at least 2 mega pixel would have made me happy (for the price you pay)!!!
dudes omg this thing is sooo cool. its like the hottest thing since brad pitt. neways... im going to by this phone.. . . . .aha.
It is not a mobile phone it is a good land line phone, because the battery takes a good 4 hours to charge and it lasts only for a maximum of 6 hours irf you seldom use the phone. If you use it a bit more then 4hours is already very good. We have to carry the charger wherever we go and we have to look for a plug contact that is why I call it a good land line phone.
hi , i think all i-mate brands isn't for the common using . i mean that phones is for business men only not for me and you. but that doesn't mean that it's bad , i haven't use it before but my friend swear that it's one of the most powerful one
I was planning to buy this phone today since my 9500 was stolen a week ago, but after reading all that I'm thinking I should wait for the se 9900I.
It seems that it has a battary issue, a network reception issue and a suppor issue.
I think I will buy from some company that makes her own phones
this is a great moblie it is basicly everything you could need! well done desidners
Hi Guys And Girls of The Imate Jasjar.
I used to have the Psion 5mx,it was a good machine till the screen packed up.Cracked by accidental knock on the tube in London.I bought a Compaq Ipaq 3870,fast and good machine,accept for the connector for the cable and cradle is poor design for charging. Mine worn out after a year of use and had to back up every time I install info onto it.
Then my friend in Saudi Arabia introduced me to the Jornada 720,she even did MSN chat on it,got the setings from the supplier.
I always used Pda's for my work,I'm a teacher of technology and ITC.I used the the Jornada 720 with it's nice keyboard,but when I went on contract with O2,the J720 feels like 'n brick in my hand.I bought a 2gig sd card and when I install an application or .exe file,I install it on the sd card and not the main memory.Even the wireless connection on the Jasjar is great to the school's website and I can even use it to access the video projector's system to controle the settings on it.No more SVGA card and cable to my Jornada to give Power point presentaions!!!
Only my Bible(Bible reader from Olive Tree.com )is on the main memorie becuase it is faster on searching.
I also have the fax software(KSE TRUEFAX) from the Kjam installed onto it,I tried it to send a fax to my own house fax,it works great,then I did the big one!!!Send a fax to my friend in South Africa,he receive it even faster than a fax from a normal machine connected to a landline!!!I installed the fax software on the Jornada 720 and also send a fax to my friend.
GPRS??? I'm weak on that subject and use the network at school for quick email check.
One application that I need for the Jasjar is Pocket Access that I use everyday on the Jornada 720.If the Jornada had the same specs of the IMATE JASJAR,I think I would never have the Imate on contract,and will still use my Nokia 6310i.
I must say that the Jasar never let me down in any occasion where I have to use it.I can only speak possitively about this machine.
Like any pda,it lacks a descent calculator,I download a engineering calculator from a website for PPC's.I use Pocket Streets 2005, Skype to contact my friends and family in South Africa,download Mort Media player,better than the supplied one on jasjar,and then finally the SPB GPRS Monitor I download from Bt's website.
Then the BEST EVER pocket reader I used before is the Mobi Pocket Reader,it synch so fast with Active Synch 4 and never had a problem with Active Synch 4.
Camera??? If all you guys and girls complain about the camera's pixcels,why don't you rather go and buy a digital camera,and the phone complainers,rather buy a cheap phone that suits your needs.
I use a PDA in full potential that it's made for,do not complain about it and get around the lack of the factory built.I only want to know one more program of the Jasjar to use it in full,but by the end of February,I will be able to do it.
Upgrade on the one's that bothers me and never be negative to the people who design and built it.If you all complainers just keep in mind,it takes more than just a descision to built a PDA and combine it with a phone to get what you want.
I am willing to say the truth,there are more than ONE Imate Jasjar that they are working on,remember,this is the first one out for JASJAR.Now that we have tested it,they KNOW what the needs are from us,and again QUALITY DOESN'T COME CHEAP !!!
If you are still complaining and complaining is in your habbit,,,, about the quality of the JASJAR,go look in the mirror to find something cheap!!
