Hey all, here's a guide to some cool things you might like if you have any ability to follow directions. This guy posted this on his blog and I thought I should share it, it started me on my way to modding my phone.
Topics covered include:
Unlocking the T-Mobile SDA
Overclocking the phone
Adding Skype which is not completely supported, but works to some degree
Application unlocking (don't require certificates anymore)
Using the computer to control the phone (4 day free trial)
I used practically the same method to unlock my SMT 5600 as well.
I would recommend this guide to anyone wanting this type of phone, I'm with Cingular and was SET on the 2125, but I stumbled across the SDA somewhere and compared it to the 2125 on phonescoop.com, said wifi?? Sweet and proceeded to find out how to unlock it for Cingular. I'm ever the more happy now.
Also, for reference, see my post at:
if you would like to re-map the media/t-web buttons on the front, I use the media buttons for TCPMP and the red one to talk on skype.
One last thing I must point out:
Skype isn't designed for this, so you don't get the full screen. I use it to make calls out so it doesn't use my minutes, but there's issues.
You can use the joy stick to navigate to contacts or dial, enter numbers in dial, but I have no way to make or end the call. Some people have reported that they can do so by depressing the button, but no such luck for me. I hope that works for you. My solution to this is to have everyone I want to call in my contact list...that means no new calls unless I use the computer to add them, but hey, for free, it's not bad. Just remember that you need to OC the phone or else there is a big delay in the calls. As it is, I would say there is a small one, less than 1 sec to outside phone lines, and much less to other Skype users.
BTW, how many names are there for this device???
No more smartphone, she left me. :'(
