Weird Bug on my Jam - Phone Indicator not functioning properly

I have a very serious problem.

By the phone indicator I mean the reception status indicator. After I wake from sleep mode it would not show any reception status at all.

I cannot use the phone, there are no incoming or outgoing calls.

A related bug that I noticed, I cannot disable flight mode properly either. after entering flight mode phone shuts off (normal) but when I wake it would not come back alive. phone indicator remains with an 'X' on it and I cannot force it to register on my network.

I doubt the network is causing this grief.

Is anyone else experience this?

So far there's only 1 ROM version available that I'm aware of. so I don't think that'll have any effects on this.

suggestions would be appreciated.

Re: Weird Bug on my Jam - Phone Indicator not functioning...

I definetly would try to insure you have the latest ROM and a memory manager on your Jam.

I had a problem, still do, where the blue tooth will not toggle on. I have to turn the flight mode on and off a number of times, mix in a soft reset and suddenly I'm back in business. Flight mode is easy to toggle on and off. There are deeper phone settings with regard to network access etc. Does your provider recognize the JAM--for example T-mobile does not really know the JAM though they have the MDA. There are certain network settings (cell network) that are most appropriate for the JAM>

I know this is limiting in help but it's a starting point. I would again look to a third party application as well for blue tooth connecitivty, so as not to have it interfering with the phone signal.

Blackberry curve8310 has a ghost message indicator on?

A ghost indicator generally means that the MDN number (your phone number) and the MIN number (number actually hidden / programmed into the phone) are linked to a phone with another ESN=Electronic Serial Number. Definitely need to contact your carrier's customer service or tech support department to have the ghost account removed!

The battery for my imate jam windows mobile 2003 goes off even when the indicator shows 60%

hi thanks for using fixya!!

How many years now is your I-mate? Normally, we need to change batteries every 1 year, especially if we are using much of our PDA. I suggest that you should change for a new battery, but if the problem still comes, better check with your tech guy to see software and hardware status.

Thanks! have a nice day!! don't forget to rate my solution positively.

Moto roker E6 is not power on

use your travel charger,connect it to your phone, does the battery indicator went up? if it does, it means the on-off switch get broken, fix the on-off switch only.

if the indicator doesn't go up. try another battery, is your battery broken?

if another battery(probably u can borrow from ur fren who has the same phone or same type battery) doesn't solve this problem, here the hard part goes..

1. did your phone just fell down hardly ? if it did, ur phone got to be fixed by professional technician, probably some component inside get broken.
2. did ur phone just get dropped to water, or just face a lot of water splash? if it did, the water can cause short electricity problem to your phone's component..
3. notice if any light, any sound come out from ur phone when you switch it on, if there's light on the keypad, or any start up sound or keypad's tone when u press it, it means ur phone is ok, just the LCD (display)
4. If none of above occur to ur phone, ur phone might face software problem. fix it to the professional technician.

Hope thissolve ur problem.

Does your phone have a data plan attached to it through T-mobile. I know there is one plan that contains 400 messages to it.

If you do check with G1 support at T-Mobile to find out if there is network issue or a software bug.

They can fix it on their end.
