Hey all,

Great to have this forum up and running!
Thanks Ido for arranging this..

Now, I am a bit in between a rock and a hard place here..
I have loaded OM2008.9 on my phone and am dual booting QT Extended on SD drive.

The idea was to easily be able to reflash OM2008 so that I can try some stuff like GPS and the like.
And use QT Extended for my everyday phone requirements. QT has all the nice features as rotate screen and delete txts by selecting boxes etc so really want to use this.

However.. It seems that QT extended has many more issues than the orginal Qtopia release and I wanted to know if anyone else is experiencing this??

I have QT hanging on me when I use the predictive keyboard (actually started to like it in Qtopia as I can type quite fast just using my thumbs with the keyboard after a bit of practice..)
Also I have QT hanging and not picking up my txts or phone calls and it is intermittent.
And the clock seems to reset itself every time I restart the device, OM2008 just remebers it.

Biggest thing though is, has anyone been able to sync QT or Qtopia?? I'd love to get all my contacts of my phone as I don't have them anywhere else at the moment..

Sure there are many more things, but this might get us started..

I run it the other way around, QT on the phone and OM on the SD card.

As for the clock issue looks like the 2 don't agree on the timezone setting, if you set it in one the other defaults back to GMT and the clock is out 11 hours. Funny thing is that OM uses the QT clock application so likely to be the kernel that causes the issue, not sure what the deal is with this mwester kernel.

And yes the predictive keyboard is flakey, mostly work with a tablet computer so always have a pen nearby and mostly use the full keyboard which seems ok although alignment seems off.

But then QT's suspend resume works great still have 65% battery power after 24 hours, while the suspend on OM still does not seem to understand that I am actually using an application.

When OM gets more stable it will be the way to go, in the mean time I might go back to Qtopia since the phone functions actually worked there.

I found it quite easy to import my contacts from a vcard file with Qtopia.   To get my contacts off my other phone, I simply got my phone to email my contacts to me, in vcard format.  Where are you contacts at the moment?

Good that I seem to recognise all the issues you are describing as well.

I'll stick with QTextended as I really like the Marking feature in the Messages application. Don't have to delete one by one.. Comes in handy because for some reason my txts get replicated every time a new txt comes in..!! So I end up with 6 duplicate txts of something..

I found though that suspend sometimes messes with the operating system a bit.
I have had QT freeze on me a couple of times for no reason.
Also the dialler sometimes gets confused when I accept a call.. When tapping the Accept button it takes 5 seconds before it picks up, if you are impatient like me and you tap it again, when it evetually picks up, the End call button gets initiated because of the second tap.. All fun and games

Just reinforces that I'll have to wait for fixes or an update..

Regarding the syncing..
What I want to do is to get them off my Neo..
I never had a flash phone before this phone so they have been accumulating on my SIM.
I'd like to put them in the phone and export them.
Also, I'd like to make the diary useable and sync it wit Outlook that we use at work..
But the only way I can find is to build the agent yourself, but that's waaay past my abilities..

Qt 4.4.2 is now definitly available for download, (was first published a few days ago but that version had some filesystem issues) looks that it solves the keyboard problems
