Check your settings for "Power save" mode or sleep settings...else, look for a small pinhole to reset the device

I agree, I somehow had my sleep mode set for four minutes. You would think the device would understand that using a phone is not using the PDA but alas, as it's an integrated device, the phone has begun turning off after two years of never doing this. I'm going to simply turn off the sleep mode, as I generally am well aware of when I'm using the device and finished.

    Hi folks,

    My phone is still shutting off when I am in phone calls. The unit is a bit over two years old. It does not shut off while in PDA mode. It shuts off under conditions that seem to be anywhere from 80% battery to 50% main battery left.

    Could it be that my battery, going on two years old, registers appropriate charge but in reality is lower charge?

    Does the phone take more energy than the rest of the unit---i.e. connecting , broadcasting, using a screen all at once?

    Given that my battery tells me it's charged appropriately, what else would cause the unit to shut on and off and yet using the Jam as a PDA alone has no problems.

    I've tried soft resets (the above mentioned pinhole). No visible results.

    I've reloaded my entire system (hard reset) with minimal applications on board. I have the latest updates from IMATE.

    I've insured that my unit does not shut off whether on battery or charge. Regardless, on occasion the screen sometimes dims itself. This has been ongoing since day one. I can live with that. I can not live with dropped phone calls.

    My guess is the cost of a repair, unfortunately, is not worth the price of the device. I am betting the newer touch system, the new Linux based phones etc. all will meet future needs. I do see many threads on google with this same problem appearing around a two year point. I see no solutions. The imate website provides little support. I may try a new battery, plain and simple.

    It would be better for someone to tell me what symptoms my situation relate to in terms of problem........and solution.

Imate jam shuts down every now and then

hi thanks for using fixya!

On that kind of error, I suggest that you bring your phone to a service center to check further the software that you have. Be sure that you have change the battery even so that you said that it works fine. You already did the soft and hard reset, but unfortunately, still not working properly.

Good Luck! hope you still have your warranty!
