My Favs can still be used even though you can not see the my favs icons on your front screen, you can still call those people as they are still listed with t-mobile and it will not cost you, Also you could put them on speed dial and you can still add pictures to those people in your contacts so you can see there face when they call you, I had a T-MOBILE MDA and it works the simular, Any way with the L instead of the @ symbol could be a language settings problem or it could be the button on your phone goofing up. Good Luck with that.

Updating my tmobile dash


To update your T-Mobile Dash Smartphone, please follow this steps,


1. Download the new software to your PC. You will be instructed to enter the 15-digit IMEI number for your device to access the download.

2. Ensure ActiveSync 4.5 for computers using Windows XP or earlier or use Windows Mobile Device Center for computers using Vista and Windows 7 is installed on your PC. If you have not installed ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center, you can install it from your Getting Started CD or download it from the Microsoft website.

3. Connect your Dash to your computer using the USB Sync Cable that came with the phone.

4. Establish a connection. You will know this is complete when the ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center icon in your PC taskbar is lit green and the status is "Connected".

5. Ensure that your T-Mobile Dash has a battery charge that is greater than 50% (two bars).

6. Remove your MicroSD card from the device if you have one inserted. Do not reinsert the SD card until after the software installation process is complete and the phone is ready to use.

7. Run the software update program you downloaded to your PC and follow the on-screen commands.

Tmobile Dash (Disk) installation problem


You can do one of 2 things. You can either connect to the internet to update your adobe software, or you can open the file from the drive itself.

To open the file, open "my computer" on the desktop. Then open the drive that the CD is on. Explore CD and look for setup.exe or activesync.exe. Double click and install.

Email will not work with any server that requires smtp authentication (which is pretty much all of them here)
*********************************************************************
There is no java in the browser. Forget it. There is also no java loader so there is no downloading java games. Copying them to the SD card won't work either. No java loader so the file will be unrecognized.
*********************************************************************
Wap services like gmail, yahoo email and wap based instant messagers work fine. Make sure you have a good unlimited feature so you do not incur overages from over using your new toy.

This is the one that worked for me - I have the $5.99 TMobile Web plan:

Dash stuck on opening TMobile screen


The Windows Mobile installation may be corrupted.
The only way to fix that problem is by re-installing the windows software on the phone.
You can get the software for the T-mobile dash at the following link: http://www.t-mobile.com/wmupgrade/
Be warned that if you use this method most of the data on the phone will be lost, like text messages and etc. Your contacts should be fine as the are stored on the SIM Card and if you have been syncing your contacts with your PC then they should get loaded when you do the up

T mobile dash


This happen to me more than once, the latest today (may 25 08)at 9pm. Tmobile will tell you how sorry they are and that's about it. I am on my second dash and second battery.
Try to hold both top keys (between call green and hung up red) while you are pressing on the shut off switch for 2 seconds. Whe it comes back to life, everything will have erased but supposedly, the phone will be like new.
I am collecting names and emails of people who are fed up with the Dash and Tmobile. Write to me jeanrenoux@hotmail.com
