    I have had the very same problems!! I have had my T-mobile Vario 4 for just 2 days and already I am having problems with it! As stated Contacts names don’t appear! Can't forward a text message to other people! And after a few hours of use the stylus just stopped going into housing smoothly & clicking in! which is very irritating.

    Also I have been trying to set up email accounts on my MDA so I may send and receive emails on the go. This function should be the most basic for this phone to do but the MDA vario 4 does not seem to want to access any email account. Hotmail, yahoo or blueyonder! Keeps going back to the name and pass word page. My suggestion would be stay away from the T-mobile vario 4 version and go for the o2 XDA Serra. It is much better any everything seems to work ok.

It is an registry bug from the t-mobile software..
It has been found on only the T-Mobile branded Raphael's.

How to fix it:
Install an Registry Editor

Here http://htc-raphael-100.handster.com/software.php?id=3199&for=HTC+Raphael+100

or

http://www.phm.lu/Products/PocketPC/RegEdit/

Go to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER>ControlPanel>Phone
Here is an D-Word registry called: CallIDMatch, the value on my phone was standing on "12". When you edit the value and set it to 8. All of the problems dissappear.
It recognizes every type of storage of contact.
and that is your prob solved ;o)

SOURCE: Active Sync. on an MDA Vario 3

i had this problem, everytime i refreshed the mda the pc showed that the phone was connecting then once the mda vario had stopped the connection was lost, what i did notive was that the com port for active sync showed up on my pc as com port 4? which isnt a choice on the mda as there is only 2 ports available com 6 and com 7, what i did was to add new serail services to the pc until i was given com 6 as a choice,(because by default the pc starts off as com 4 then com 5 etc, so goto the bluetooth configuration then click on client apps and keep adding new service until you get com 6 then try and sync via activesync on your phone, if that doesnt work make sure that you have added new bluetooth device which gives you options of what services you would like the phone to use with the pc, click activesync then configure it to connect on com 6 voila that should work fine iv just updated mine to netframework 2.0 and can now run all the apps i want, any problems email me on iwannatoken@hotmail.co.uk il be happy to assist any way i can as i was stuck on this problem for ages and ages until i finally solved it hope you succeed.

MDA Vario died - HELP


hi. i have had the same problem and have had to change the battery twice in the three years i have had it. sometimes the batteries that you can buy off ebay are quite cheap but go off without any warning fairly quickly.last one i have bougt has lasted me 1.5 years without any probs.
my other advice would be to back up your contacts/other sensitive information somewhere safe( your phone SIM for example- which has to be done one at a time for the mda vario)as well just in case.
hope it helps

Automatically logging onto internet


I'm not sure if you are using GPRS, EDGE, EV-DO, etc....

this is how you do it with GPRS

REG HACK - Turn off GPRS totally (and back to working state) without going to settings

1: You need a Registry editor ( eg. Resco Explorer... there are freeware registry editors too )
2: Find the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ConnMgr\Providers\{7C4B7A38-5FF7-4bc1-80F6-5DA7870BB1AA}\Connections\
3: under that , you should see you GPRS settings , for example , mine 's OPTUS GPRS Internet , OPTUS GPRS MMS etc , pick the right one and export it to the *.REG file, and name it to something like " GPRS ON.reg "
4: Modify the setting inside ( for example OPTUS GPRS Internet ) , and change the Enabled value from 1 to 0, then export it to GPRS OFF.reg

use the GPRS ON /OFF .reg to toggle between GPRS always off and on when required.

Happy Registry editing
