Question about i-mate Ultimate 9502 Cell Phone

1 Answer

WM 6.1 flash compatable with Australian NextG network settings?

I will be using my IMate 9502 with the Telstra Australia Next G network.
I believe that their NextG frequency band is different from that of the rest of the world.
I have the flash upgrade from WM 6.0 to WM 6.1-1.7, but I do not know if it is a Telstra Australia issued upgrade, or from elsewhere. (probably elsewhere)
My concern is that I do not know if a non-Australian WM flash upgrade might change the NextG (3.5G) frequency that the phone uses, ie. I do not know if the next G frequency is a hardware or a software factor.
If it is a software setting, then by upgrading (with an overseas issued flash upgrade) will I render it unable to pick up the unique Australian band nextG? Does anyone know? I don't really want to do it until I find out.
Alternatively, does anyone know if/where a Telstra Australia upgrade flash to WM 6.1 can be obtained from?
Thankyou.

The GSM/3G bands are hardcoded in the phone's radio chip, for what you can flash your phone to v1.77 WM6.1 ROM. This ROM was plublished by i-mate back in Nov. '08, and it is the most recent ROM released for the 9502 so far.
You see, the i-mate's Configurator application, which you most probably used with the stock WM6 ROM, will still be there. So, your internet and MMS settings will, most probably, be done automatically after flashing your device. If not, just check Telstra's Help page, or call them, to manually set those data.
Just my 2 cents... Carlos

Imate 9502 daylight saving time reset. How can I stop my imate 9502 phone from reverting back to Australian EST although DST ended on 3 Oct?


Go to 'Start > Settings > System tab > Clock & Alarms > Time tab', and make sure the 'Sync to current time zone' checkbox is unchecked. Press 'OK' a couple of time to leave the settings pages.
This way, you'll have to manually set your correct time when a DST time changes.
Hope it works for you.
Anyway, please, let me know I can assist you any further.
Regards,Carlos

How can I stop my Imate 9502 reverting back to Eastern Australian Standard Time when we have been operating on Daylight Saving time since 3 October? I keep adjusting the time, saving the settings, however...


I wonder if your 'Sync to current time zone' box, under 'Start > Settings > System tab > Clock & Alarms > Time tab', is unchecked...
Other thoughts: check, with a Task Manager, if ActiveSync is running in the background. If so, set its schedule to sync manually. However, if no sync data are set at all, you can either set it to sync with an exchange server, like 'm.google.com' (if you have a google account, that is), or even fill in completely fake exchange server data, provided that the sync schedule is set to manual. Then, you can exit ActiveSync (or even kill its process).
Hope you are able to sort your problems out soon, but, please, let me know if you need further assistance.
Regards, Carlos
