As she took my laptop when I was inside teh aircraft, It was in its leather bag. My Laptop battery was already past its useful life & it was mostly working on AC power. However that 6 hrs flight at -40C did wonders to my laptop batttery. When I connected it at home & realised after a few days that battery is retaining its full charge. I trid to run my lappy wout AC power & was shocked to see that the 'dead' battery is now retaining charge for upto 3 hrs. So I tried to put my other NiMH & Li cells in my fridger in a polythene bag & realised that ost of them are again as good as new. SO now I wekly put my Storm cell to fridger overnight.

    U too can try at ur risk & see the result. Just note that when u take it out of fridge, let teh cell come to room temp befor u start charging it.
    great tip clive!!! if you try this method be forewarned to let the battery as clive said come up to room temp, before you place in the device as you could get condensation from the temp in your phone

    My MMS msgs like to randomly stop being "recieved". I get the msg, with the "message cannot be recieved, try again later" line. Similar to this is YOUMAIL visual voicemail wont update either when this happens. I do a BP, and go back to the msg i can hit "retrieve now" and it will retrieve. Also VVM updates after BP.
    Any ideas? fixes? Did i screw something up ??
    Have we found any solutions to this? BP would be ok if it didnt require a 10 min reboot :irked: Other wise I am in Love with this. it is as close to 5.0 as i can get without all the glitches

    Im still awaiting some answer... I still have this issue.. but it may be isolated to me, since no one else seems to have spoken up about it.
    Ive also wiped and re-installed v8.5 3 times, so it wasnt just an install FK up.

    EDIT (here's a better answer): This is probably due to the fact that Direct TCP connection lasts only for about 1.5 - 2 hrs with the .151 radio, then you must reboot for it to work again. Youmail may require that connection or perhaps it automatically selects it and thats why it works for a little bit. See if you can change it to Bis-B.
    I don't remember having issues with MMS when I had this on my phone but it could be due to that as well.

    EDIT: The more I think about it the more I think this is it. Many apps will choose the fastest connection when you first open them - that would be Direct TCP. It will work fine for about an hour or 2 then stop because the Direct TCP connection stops working and the app is still trying to use it.

    You can try swapping a .132 radio in there as a permanent fix. That's what I did to fix the Direct TCP situation until I went to 5.0. If you DO decide to try this make sure you follow the instructions I posted a few pages back or you could brick your phone.

    I am pretty sure MMS runs off of the Carrier network and should have nothing to do with BIS or TCP.. I could be wrong remember I think lol

    Been sporting this hybrid for well over a week now, wiped my Storm three times, reloaded with all the proper parameters checked.... and I'm still having MMS issues (sending and receiving). anyone have any ideas?

    *Edit*
    If I do a quick pull and reset my phone, I'm able to send and receive MMS'. But as the day progresses, I'm unable to send or receive yet again.

    Direct TCP connection is a direct internet connection through the carrier's 3g network and has nothing to do with BIS.

    I'm not 100% sure about the MMS issue here being caused by .151 but it sounds a lot like the app issue, which I am certain is because of the TCP issue associated with .151.

    Like I said, for me it would work great for about 2 hours - always 2 hours (give or take a few minutes) then go kaput until reboot. There is no way around this other than swapping the radio.

    8.5 hybrid

    I am seeing bluetooth weirdness. It seems to drop more often and take much longer to connect.

    Thanks for all the work you put into these hybrids
