Tips and Tricks
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!
It has surely happened to everyone. An accidental keypress while a phone is in your pocket and someone gets a phonecall. For the most part these calls are harmless but there are times when it might become a nuisance.
The Shadow comes with automatic locking already enabled, however the two keys needed to unlock it are on next to each other on the same side of the phone. Further, the call button is next to these two as well. Simply walking can press these buttons.
There is a solution, a solution everyone should use anyways. Use a pin code with your phone. It might seem a small nuisance at first but if you do leave your phone somewhere you don’t have to worry about your information and pictures ending up in the wrong hands.
Additionally, Windows Mobile 6 (WM6) includes a setting for encrypting content on your memory card. A pin for your phone is only good for the information on the phone itself. If you have any sensitive data on the memory card it can be accessed through a card reader. So encrypt it and give the bad guys a hard time.
This post is a short walk through on how to set up your PIN and encryption for your memory card. Read the full story for the walk through.
