Pharos Traveler 137 -- unlocking

Hello all,

I purchased a Pharos Traveler 137 off eBay with the intention of using it with my Telus service. However... I had the misfortune of getting the only version of the phone that is SIM locked... the CBW one.

And that's where things get sticky. I contacted CBW several times to try and obtain the code, but they basically told me to piss off and that they wouldn't supply me the code. I also contacted Pharos to see if they would have more luck than I did getting the code from CBW, but that was futile as well.

Third-party unlocking options are pretty much inexistent for this phone because of it's rarity, and the SIM unlocking attachments also didn't help.

I brought the phone to a place in my town that supposedly specialize i...

Do all WM phones suck??

I've owned a treo 700w, and a samsung i-730 both on Verizon's network.

I have to start everyday with a soft reset, 30% plus calls take 2-4 tries to complete or another soft reset. I've been interupted so many @$#%#$^ times when I'm dialing a number and the phone has to tell me I have messages waiting or missed an appointment after which I have to start dialing again. I truely miss having voice recognition that works. It's always nice finding out 3 days to a week afterwards that someone left me a voice mail.

I don't run much of any 3rd party apps. My wife now uses my old i-730 without any apps and it still does the same things driving her totally nuts.

The voicemail and dropped/no calls I blame on Verizon's poor coverage ar...

Any RSS Reader for my Pocket PC?

Dear all,

I am running a Samsung i780 with WM6.1. I'd like to be able to read some RSS feeds, and have had some success in the past in using the
free pRSSreader. That worked really well, but there is a feature missing that I would really like to have. I'm hoping that someone here might be able to recommend a suitable reader.

The problem with pRSSreader, was that I'd read postings that I thought were interesting and then flag them to read later. However, the program wouldn't keep them for later - instead it would ditch all the postings irrespective of whether they had been flagged or not.

So I'd like a way to either make a favorite posting list or save postings that I think are interesting, so I can read through them again at a late...

Why WinMo is in trouble...

All I have to say is I'm there are more choices when it comes to mobile OS's than there are on the desktop. And there are applications being made for each platform with RIM announcing they're own app store and Android Marketplace to support they're perspective OS's. ... »

My old Ipaq 6945 also had GPS. With some slight modification I was able to use the map program called Mapopolis. The company has gone out of business and my 6945 shorted out with something looking like a steak of lightning across the touch screen.

Does anyone happen to know if the program Mapopolis will work with the new Ipaq 910. I have already ordered it and and don't want to have to buy new maps.

Boy would any help here be welcome and deeply appreciated.

Verizon Wireless XV6800 GPS - Google Maps???

I have the HTC XV6800 with Verizon Wireless. I must say I love the phone except that I am unable to use "My Location" or GPS when using Google Maps. I know other carriers allow you to use google maps and can get a pretty good range on your location. Is there a way that I can use Google Maps AND have the phone show me my location?? I would love to use it when driving when I get lost =P

Thank you in advance for your help! Sorry if this is an easy/silly questions!!
