I have really poor signal most of the time, sometimes it's "emergency calls only" for no apparent reason, sometimes it says the GPRS is detached, sometimes there's just no bars even though i'm...

Are you using an old SIM card? Sometimes a worn out SIM card won't make a solid connection with the metal contacts, resulting in a drop in signal strength.
You might want to look into getting a new SIM from your carrier, and see if that helps.
Otherwise, I am guessing it is a hardware problem with the phone itself.

My e reader prs 600 isn't holding a charge for more than 2 days

Without knowing the background of your experience with the unit, it is a bit hard to determine if it is a hardware / software problem. I suppose the first thing is to decide is, are there any habits that you have developed when using the unit that may contribute to the problem of rapid battery deterioration.

When you are using the unit, do you leave turned on for long periods in between reading sessions?
When you finish using the unit, do you switch off by gently sliding the off switch or do you completely turn it off by sliding the switch to the right and holding it for 2-3 seconds?
When you charge the battery, are you confident that the battery is fully charged before disconnecting? (The handbook will help to describe when this state is achieved.)

I guess you are using the unit properly in which case it is almost certain that it is a hardware / software problem and needs to be returned. If you go this route you probably either need a new battery or if the hardware is faulty, a replacement unit.

Despite the problems you are experiencing, I have to say that the normal cycle between charges of my PRS-600 is not as long as I expected or hoped. In my case, this is about 5-8 days of steady use at about 1/2 to 1 hour per day.

Startup shows ''No GSM''

Is the phone SIM unlocked, CID unlocked or both? The quickest solution (if you have an uncorrupted ROM) is to do a hard reset, insert your SIM card and see what you get. It that doesn't work, you should probably start from the beginning and flash a new ROM. You need to know what version of Windows Mobile you are running and the device's unlock status before we can point you in the right direction. When you have that info., PM denco7. He is the expert on flashing ROMs and can advise you on which custom ROM to load on your device and the steps you should follow to do it. He really knows this stuff and is happy to help.

I have signal problems. I only get a signal in certain places.

Try removing the antenna and then bend the copper connector closer towards where the screw is.  This should make a big difference

You can pop the track ball out and roll it in your fingers. Something in your pocket (or whereever) has gottne into the ball. If it is less than 24hours old....WARRANTY

Inactive 7290 controls

Have you rebooted it? If so, and it didn't work, have you reset it completely? Are you running the most recent software on it from RIM? There could be a few issues here.

E115 main memory problem

The memory problem can be fixed easily. It is not only you. It is a common problem with some pocket pc. Instructions according to Casio Customer Service: You will have to back up all of the data. Then remove the backup battery and main battery for ten minutes. Restore all of your files and you should be back in business. Also, to prevent this from happening again and to keep program memory high, perform a soft reset at least once daily. This will almost certainly fix your problem.
