Embrace the Hard Reset: You Must Unlearn What You Have Learned!


I purchased an i-mate PDA2k in December.  The device is an HTC BlueAngel variant; and is pretty awesome.  As far as PPC Phones go, this one is really great.  If you’re looking to grab one, I’d recommend it (at least today).  You’d be hard pressed to find a better device on the market as of today.  In a few months, with the release of the iPAQ Mobile Messenger hx6515, that may change, BUT, I digress.

Since purchasing the device at the end of December, I think I’ve hard reset the device nearly 30 times.  Some of those were accidents.  Some have been on purpose; but that averages out to 1.5 times a week in the last 20 weeks.  THAT’S NUTS!!!

The device has some serious ROM issues that I am hoping will be resolved in, what I am told by Carrier Devices, is an upcoming release.  I’m still waiting.  I think I am going to have to give them another shout and see what they have to say.  I’m getting tired of rebuidling the device.

Due to the way MS ActiveSync as well as Pocket PC’s work, I’ve always found it easier to rebuild the device from scratch rather than restoring a backup.  This is getting really old…
