poeticwun tells us in the Touch Pro2 Forums about this great app called WiFi Remote Access that allows you to explore the content of your Windows Mobile Phone through the browser on your PC over WiFI. It’s super easy to use and can come in real handy in a pinch.
For example, say you’re at a friends house and want to transfer a file to them but you can’t transfer it the usual way. Just fire up WiFi Remote Access up and get to business. Keep reading for a mini-review and some features.
The update for our Touch Pro2’s has been out for a few weeks. I get a lot of emails asking how to upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.5. This post will walk you through how to upgrade your Touch Pro2 to Windows Mobile 6.5. Keep reading for the full tutorial.
Update: This cab isn’t working with the Official T-Mo WM 6.5 ROM that was recently released.
The Touch Pro2 does come with a FM Radio that for some reason T-Mobile forgot to include in the TMO ROM. You will need your earphones for it to work because they act as the antenna. Right now I’m listening to some cool jazz on 91.5 in Phoenix.
It does support playing music through the high quality speaker. Just tap the button above the ‘1’ preset. You can also switch back forth from stereo to mono, mute, scan, and more. To get your radio going download and install the HTC_FM_Radio.cab on your Touch Pro2. Enjoy!
There aren’t many devices out there that provide the candybar-QWERTY form factor like a BlackBerry, but we’re keeping an eye on a leak for a Windows Mobile phone that just may bring this form factor, possibly to T-Mobile. It’s called the Trophy, and it has a full QWERTY keyboard with a VGA capacitive display. It’s not often that you get such a high resolution screen in combination with a keyboard and a sleek design. Our best guess is that the Trophy will land in the US in Q2, and whether it goes to T-Mobile or AT&T remains to be seen.
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!
