If you send any number of messages during the day you will probably find it irritating whenever Windows Mobile decides to tell you that the message was sent. The other way that this could be handled is telling us if the message wasn’t sent. But Noooo, back in the day, pop up happy coders had their run at Microsoft and this bit of code is still irritating people world wide. Perhaps it could account for the high blood pressure and stress levels of the average person.
Good news! The same fix we used on the Original Shadow still works on the newer Windows Mobile Phones. To remove the sms sent notification message from your phone simply download and install this handy cab file aptly named mixtapeking1900-turn-sms-notification-off.
This has been tested on the UMA Shadow, Dash 3G and the Touch Pro2. If you have successfully run this on other devices let us know in the comments! Enjoy!
Toebee has a concise post in the forums on how to get TellMe (from Sprint Windows Phones) onto your TP2 or other Windows Mobile 6.1 or higher (6.5) touchscreen phone.
With TellMe you can:
- Voice to Text Messaging.
- Voice Activated Dialing.
- Web Search.
- Sports Scores.
- GPS enabled.
The Requirements are:
- Pocket PC (Windows Mobile) 6.1, 6.5 (may work on non touchscreens)
- .NET Compact Framework
- Internet Connection
Toebee says: This is meant for Sprint’s Samsung Intrepid, but I have it working on my Wing, and there are reports of it working on other Windows phones including the TP2. I will not provide support for this, as I did not make it. I’m just posting it so everyone can try it out. Either it will work for you or it won’t.
EDIT 07FEB2008: Updated FlashVideoBundle File
Dennis asked if there was a way to watch online videos on the T-Mobile Shadow. Windows Mobile doesn’t include the native ability to watch online video however there is a method for enabling a near seamless method of watching video on the T-Mobile Shadow. We’re not talking just Youtube, there is also Google Video, Veoh, Daily Motion and many more. Now you can one up your iPhone friends…again
What you need:
- TCPMP for Smartphones 0.72RC1 <–Shadow Users (Pocket PC users need this one)
- Skunkworks FlashVideoBundle
- Wifi connection for better viewing
Once you have downloaded and transferred these files to your phone. Install them using file manager. Be sure you install both files to the same place (either Device OR Storage Card), they need to be in the same place to work correctly. Be sure you install the right one for your device.
From the home screen, click the Start button and scroll down the programs list. You will see the ‘TCPMP’ as well as an Internet Explorer icon called ‘Video Sites’, go ahead and select that to get a good list of various sites. Use the ‘Video Sites’ link
***Warning: The default Video Sites file contains links to video sites that contain adult content, to change this simply go to the folder Device > Program Files > TCPMP and delete the folder ’sites’. Next rename the folder ’sites.clean’ to ’sites’***
Note: TCPMP original site has been down for sometime, you can still get other versions of TCPMP here.
