I've got lucky a few times, and got a protecter that didn't have an edge that didn't stick a few times. But more often than not it ends up being a waste of money because I'm not satisfied with it. Plus I end up spending an hour in a steamy bathroom trying to apply it. I used to swear by them, but have since given up. What brand are you using?

I never really tried dialing the name using the on-screen keypad. That makes sense though. Still, more difficult than what I'm doing now, but better than anything I'd thought of yet. That brings me to my other main concern though, screen cleanliness. I'm unhealthily obsessed with keeping my screen clean and perfect looking. As such, I never touch it with my fingers. I could put a screen protector on it to keep finger smudged off the screen, but almost every one I've ever put on had at least one little edge that didn't stick down. I can't live with that, and end up ripping it off after a few days. I'll just have to live with it I guess.


I put a screen protector on mine and it sticks down just fine no problem for over a year. I like you suffer from a slight case of OCD. I've learned to tap with my finger tips so hardly every any smudges. I just wipe it clean though every few days with the same rag I use to clean my sunglasses.

I've been considering getting the new Sprint PPC-6800/HTC Mogul when it comes out. I've been using the Motorola Q for a while now, but was using the Treo 700wx prior to that. One of the main concerns I have with switching back to a PPC, particularly one with a slide out thumb board, is contact dialing. Right now on my Q, as well as with the 700wx, it is so simple. I just start dialing the name of the person I want to call on the exposed thumb board, and within 1-2 key stokes I usually have a call placed.

With the PPC-6800 I don't see it being an easy task. Sure, I can use the right soft key to go into Contacts, scroll through all the names I have, then press the call button on the person I want to call. But that takes an awfully long time compared to the simple method I have now. I could also use voice dialing, but that doesn't work so well in public places. So my question to all you currently using a PPC Phone without an exposed thumb board; how do you place calls on your device? I'm dying to know of any good solutions I'm not thinking of.


I've got the 8125 so I simply pull up the keypad and start pressing the first few letters of the name as listed in my contacts and it matches what I'm typing. The easiest though is MS Voice Command. Press the side button and say dial lucy liu cell and then confirm it and that's that.

Unless I'm mistaken that ROM has been out since I got my 8125 last year. For me it was a definite good upgrade. Only bad thing I noticed is that when I press the mail button it shows the mail screen top and bottom but in the middle is the desktop screen.

That's interesting 'cuz when I went in and manually changed the time on mine, when I ActiveSync'd the time got set back an hour. Whatever works!


I noticed that after the update it had some new time zones in drop down menu.

I don't know how to tell if my Outlook is fine but I knew my computer was updated and went ahead and did the step 3 on my phone. I watched as it turned 2am and it stayed 2am while other clocks around me were updating themselves to 3am. So, I thought it hadn't worked...just as I'd expected it wouldn't. I manually set the phone to the correct time and went to bed. And, since it "didn't work" I removed the program from my phone while I was at it.

Sunday morning when I got up I ActiveSynced my phone to my PC and my phone clock got set back an hour automatically. Oops. So, I re-installed step 3, ActiveSynced my phone and it got set a hour forward and is now correct.

I noticed in my "remove programs" list I have two entries from Microsoft regarding DST. One is called "Microsoft Corp. Extended DST Update" and the other is called "Microsoft Update for 2007 Daylight Saving Time".

How do you know your Outlook is fine? That's the step 2 part I never got to work on either laptop.



I know my Outlook is fine because after the time change the dates during the effected 3 week periods on my calender were shifted a hour earlier.

I figured out what was wrong with my phone. I had to go in and manually change the time zone.

I never got the three step process to work. Step two fails on both our laptops (that we use ActiveSync on). I wonder what would happen if I just follow the non-Outlook calendar sync instructions? I've got the Step 1 update on both PCs and step 3 would update the phones.



Anyone else having problems getting the DST update to work. My laptop and outlook is all fine but the 8125 phone still has the old time even with the update.

Why does WM5 keep every program running after I close it and it seems to open active sync
whenever it wants to, and it wants to all the time. Got tired of going to settings>system>memory>
running programs> stop all. What were they thinking. I am using Pocket nav task manager and it
works well but I would like to find some way to just have a program stop running when I close it. And
to stop active sync from starting all by its self. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance




Get a 3rd party program like magic button , sbp pocket plus, or handy switcher. I prefer the last one myself.

If using it with Cingular, I'd put the most recent Cingular ROM on it. You can find it on the HTC America site if you don't already have it.


I upgraded to the one in the above post. It's much better than the previous one the phone came with. Only thing I don't understand is it has an email icon under the comm manager and it doesn't do anything when tapped.

Awesome information. Thanks.


Interesting. I've noticed that about a month after I got my 8125 connecting, logging on, on my gmail and roadrunner email accounts take about a mintue or so but in the past as long as I was connected it connect right away. The same thing happens with my pocket IE.

What file format are your ringtones? For my Cingular 8125 to use a media file in alerts/notifications it has to be in .wav format.

Thanks. I'm trying .... to.... breathe. ha ha. I'm just so FRUSTRATED. Well, at least the ringtones are working. I'd REALY be upset if that wasnt working to. Ok, I used mp3 to ringtone gold and clicked on "save as wav". I just put it in "my music" and it didnt automatically put it in the sounds and notifications drop down menu and it wont let me add it from the notifications window either. I hope you can help me. I am using the cingular 8125 pocket pc. The theme that I just tried to put on my phone is at this address. I dont know how to check it to see which one it is. These are made specifically for my phone. THank you.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TRYING TO HELP ME. I am about to EXPLODE. THank you.

Hmmmm...I double checked and they are .wav files I have and they are in the windows folder. You did confirm they are in that file correct? Also, the same .wav files I have in the windows folder show up as alarm rings on my phone. So I would say to put the same .wav files in the same windows folder on your phone and they should show up. To change the alarm rings just go to settings/system/clock & alarms then click on more tab to get to a drop down menu showing all the alarm types.

Now when I want to change the today screen background I just hold down the stylus on my pic and then select set as background or whatever it's called.

Now concerning your today screen theme. This is what it says on Handango on that link you posted...

"You'll need FlashThemes Player, FlashDash, or FlashThemes Pro"

My phone is driving me crazy. This is the third phone I've had and I still cant get it to do a couple things. (I've exchanged it twice.) I've been on hold with cingular for days -literally- and cant get any help. I cant get some of my themes to work and it most definatly wont do any animated themes. It just shows the default blue screen when I set it through settings-today. I purchased them from handango and am trying to get a refund on them as we speak. They are made especially for my phone. The other thing that is driving me crazy is I want to put some of my music files on the phone and use them in the sounds and notification....example : for calander reminders, alarms, missed calls, voice mails, etc etc. When I go into the sounds and notifications and then to notifications i have a drop down menu of sounds I can choose from. I guess I'm trying to figure out how to get my music files in there. Also, I havent seen where you can even change the way the alarm sounds. I am having alot of problems with my phone but if I could just get these two things resolved I would be SO HAPPY. Please help.

1. Take a breath and relax you have an awesome phone.

2. Not sure on the home screen thing yet but I'll play with my phone and get back with you.

3. To use your own files as notifications they must be in .wav format and put anywhere in the windows folder.

4. I haven't used the alarm yet so I'll have to play with it and figure it out.

You aren't having problems with your phone you are just trying to do things you don't know how to do.

Are you meaning can you use your own files for ring tones? If you are meaning ring tones then the answer is yes. There's a file called ring tones put your .wav, .mp3, and/or .wma files in that folder and you can use it in ring tones. If you want to use your .wav files as notifications then put them anywhere in the windows folder.

Although I close each program in my 8125 it seems to keep them running. I continually have to go to settings memory running programs and hit stop all. I also see programs running that I didnt open such as active sync. It always seems to be running. Is there a better or different way to close programs and keep active sync from opening?? THX



There are several programs. Some like magic button, some like spb pocket plus. I use Dinar Soft Handy Switcher.

Any ideas?

I just picked up my 8125 the other day. So far I really love it. The Cingular store will be happy to sell it to you at full price. I think they sell it for 449. As for WIFI, it only has 802.11 B...no G. no where on the box does it say G...just B. The Wifi drains the battery fast but who cares when u can just plug it in at a internet cafe etc and go as long as you want. I wanted a device like this for a long time with the WiFi. I got tired of pulling out my whole laptop and booting it up just to check a few emails etc.


You can get it to connect to a G router you have to do a registry hack.

Yes I tired it....I didn't like it. So I went back to that customized ROM that one guy is doing on spv developers. Its more stable, the radio version works much better.


If I was to install a different ROM and then execute my sprite back up file would everything go back the way I had it before except for there being a new ROM or would I have to redo all my settings and stuff.

OK..here is one for ya.

I have a Dlink DI-524 wireless router(192.168.0.1) connected in my closet to the internet connection. I have the WIFI and DHCP turned off on this router. I have a Linksys 5 port switch plugged into the Dlink. I have a Linksys WRT54G(192.168.0.2) plugged into that switch and set to router mode and with DHCP off. The cable goes from the switch to one of the 4 ports of the Linksys router, NOT the WAN port. I have the DHCP server running from my Windows 2003 Server connected to the Dlink router.

I can connect all day long from my laptop wireless(set to DHCP). When I do a IPCONFIG /ALL on my laptop I get all the right information populated....gateway...dns servers, etc.

When I connect with my 8125, it connects and then only works for like 1 minute. Then wont resolve anything I try to connect to.

When I grab my next door neighbor's signal(dont tell him) just to test...it stays working for as long as I want.

I suppose my networking skills are lacking somewhere.

anyone have any thoughts on this?

thanks,


Is the router you are trying to connect to with the 8125 a B or G router?

If it's a G router have you done the registry edit that allows you to connect to a G router. The phone is set to only connect to a B router by default.

I don't remember, but I think the SMT5600 has WMP10 on it, correct? Do the protected files show up in WMP on your PC? You could try transferring them over using WMP on your PC.


Can you guess who bought my old smt5600 after i switched to the 8125? biggrin.gif
