    The T-Mobile MDA III doesn't have a 'Time Zones' tab, otherwise the solution to resolve the periodical zone jumping would have been spot on. Any other way to get around this 'bug'?

these guys know about all of the bugs, I will go research for u.

Turn off automatic time set, there is a bug that periodically jumps zones. Also it causes active sync to run all the time.

Start>Settings>Phone then "Time Zones" Tab, Un-Check auto time set.

What if I live in bristol and do not know which option, time to choose from to keep time upmost accurate london or GMT

The main difference, as I understand it, between London time and GMT is London time will shift for DST (daylight savings time) and GMT will not. Therefore, London time is probably your best bet.

How do you turn on the built-in gps on mda compact iii windows mobile

You do not have to turn anything on. Use Google maps (download from or any other maps that you like and set it up to use built-in GPS device. When you start using these maps, they will on their own stat the GPS and start using it. You will get an indication by a dish being displayed on the screen. This can be used by the mobile alone, you cant use it on your computer like other bluetooth GPS'.

My (MDA COmpact IV ) has just frozed...

Hi, first of all, you can try to reset your device using your stylus, and this should solve your problem. To reset your device: The reset hole itself is visible once you remove the stylus. It is in the corner where the tip of the stylus would be - and is in red so you cant miss it. Hope this helps.

T-mobile Compact iii screen failure

Sometimes the SIM card will cause this problem. The first thing I'd do is ask T-mobile if they can diagnose this issue down to your SIM card and have it replaced. If that's what it is anyway.
How often do you turn it off? ( you should turn it off regularly, at night when it's charging or whenever ) Do you have a lot of stored info that you do not use? It could be corrupted, try erasing some things you don't use anymore. Just a couple things to try.
