Can anyone help? The JASJAR is great, but I can't install ActiveSync on my PC. When cd is inserted, it displays: "OEM configuration file invalid". I'm running XP Professional. Help plz!
The JasJar experience in Aruba.
I consider my self a high-end and very demanding mobile user. Also known as a road warrior. My buying cycle of a new mobile device is once a year in the month of December. I always start doing my research and comparisons on features/specs of brands and models 3 months before. For the last 3 years I had my focused on the Sony Ericssons P series smartphones. Because their functionalities always met my requirements. I owned all of them from the 800 to 910 and I must say they all really served me very well. This year my requirements increased much more and got more demanding especially for my next year's projects, that I was even considering in just buying a PC laptop and keep my SE P910i and combine the best of both worlds. But I wasn't happy with the idea at all, since I will need to get used to the extra equipment and weight. Well in early September I read the announcement of the i-mate JasJar and couldn't believe it, it is exactly the type of device I need!! Powerful enough to get all my things done without the need of the additional PC laptop.
So I placed the order immediately together with a Jabber 800T BT headset, 2Gb SD card and the Piel Frama executive carrying case that has compartments for 2 SD cards, 2 credit cards and a money holder, which now also replaced my wallet.
One less thing to carry around.
My experience with the JasJar.... It's a master piece of a device, the screen is very nice and sharp. the keyboard is a blessing, typing of emails and text messages is so easy. On my 8 hours flight to Europe - Holland I could work on all my reports in mobile word and excel and listen to my mp3s and watched some video clips just like on a regular PC laptop. Wi-fi worked without problem on all the hot-spots in Aruba and Holland and I also tried UMTS it works great and was very fast, Video phone also did very well no complains. I didn't take my digital camera this time, since 1.3 mega pixel works for me. Internet experience is good with pocket IE, but can be much better with a more advanced browser like opera. As a phone I must say without a BT headset with caller id the JasJar is useless, since it doesn't has an external display to show who is calling without opening it and it looks so big and foolish at your face during conversation. Besides those short comings it's a full fledge cell phone just like any other high-end one.
Overall performance is acceptable. I like the flash rom approach, because after landing in Holland the batteries got fully drained and I didn't loose my data. Windows Mobile 5 looks very stable to me, I didn't experienced any crash yet. For desktop connectivity I use pocketMac Pro to synch between my Macintosh and the JasJar, no problems there.
I must say the JasJar is not for everybody, it is especially made for demanding mobile user that needs more pc functionalities in a mobile device and sacrifice portability of a common cell phone. So please don't complain on it's size and weight if you are looking for just a razor thin cell from motorola.
Anyways for now the JasJar will keep me busy on the road till the end of next year again when I'm ready to seek for his replacement.
Sunny regards from Aruba.

If your in a rural area, dont get this phone.(for Cingular). The 850 is a NECESSITY for CINGULAR!!! Moreover, if you are in a city, you can get this phone no prob.
Please can anyone tell me which one is better JASJAR or K-JAM and Why? coze I really wanna bye one of them .The problem that both of them are new and similar to each other !!!
Omo men .. dis tin no bad o. D fone natty men. This phone aint bad. I think you should get it ..
To TassosTS - I think it is just a matter of personal preference on which OS to pick.
Does the internet function support "pop-ups" on this PDA? For example, when you log into your internet banking, you get a security pop-up to enter your password etc, but alot of PDAs do not support pop-ups. Thanks.
well, I bought a JasJar some weeks ago. If you are detrmined to buy a beautiful toy, then buy the QTEK 9000. Why? Go to the JasJar forums, and you will understand why, after reading everyone's comments on company support! On the other hand, if you want a USABLE, REAL phone, do NOT buy anything with other than Symbian Phone (Like SonyErricson P910i).
I've just purchased a jasjar - is there anyone in Kuwait who can help with loading it with all available software. If so pls get intouch.
PS-in particular if u can convert xp programs to 5.0.
more than 80% windows mobille os pda fones made by htc.
To: Senna I have it with cingular and the phones works great because it use ATT antenas
OK. I am not sure how great this is for the Cingular network as it is using 850 rather than 1900. This PDA/Phone doesn't support 850 as far as I know. Please correct me if I am wrong. I always had problem with the 1900 phones on the 850 Cingular network. BTW, I just got a HP 6515 and it is probably one of the better PDA/Phone I have used in a long while. Cheers to all!!!
