My SP2 lost its vibration!!!! HELP!!!

what can one do to revive the vibration? I don't want to change phone, now that I have spent $$ on MCE and LCD screen...

otherwise I will have to get Nokia N70 or SonyEricsson's p990, or HTC Star Trek... or ultimately Imate JasJar!




but i'll be looking at cheaper solution, how to revive my phone vibration!

Have you changed to another profile and back? REstarted the phone? Last resort, a hard reset?

You will see it is a relatively painless process... Use the Clear Storage utility.

Download the customisations from the Club imate site. After the reset install it first thing. Restart and then start installing other applications you have.

Okay. got my baby reset! all good again.. for unknown reason the vibration just died and hard reset (thanks to Mauricio's suggestion) it works again...


it wasn't too big a problem to hard reset. though it did got me planning for how to backup and restore.

I got Jeyo Mobile Extender for Outlook (you can use Jeyo Mobile Companion for standalone if you like to too) to back up your SMS if you want to keep them. Later you can copy back the SMS into your devices (Smartphone or PocketPC either), however do be aware that, if you are going to move 100 SMS back into your devices, all SMS will appear as new unread SMS, so good luck on clearing them to read. hehe.

One thing that I found that I haven't backup is, MMS... unfortunately there isn't any program to backup MMS but that's not too much a worry for me... :-)

I also went to Club Imate to get the Imate Smartphone2 Customisation pack for Vodafone NZ. Got three of my other fav/must have software, Binarys Smart Explorer 2.1, Binarys SP Task Manager 2.0 and Oxios Hibernation.

  • Make sure you copy your images from \My Documents\My Pictures (if default) and your videos from \My Documents\My Videos (if default) too.
  • If you have your own ringtones stored in \Storage\Application Data\Sounds make sure you back them up (and yes, you can put your own ringtones there, only MID (basic) or WAV).
  • If you have your own customised Home screen, back them up from \Storage\Application Data\Home
  • .If you have your customised settings for your phone profile (eg, normal, meeting, silent, outdoor), back them up from \Storage\Application Data\Profiles.
  • To back up your PIE's favourites, back them up from \Storage\Windows\Favorites


Do a last synchronisation with MS Outlook on desktop. Check the synchronisation are good and no duplication etc.

Then remove your Smartphone2, delete the partnership on ActiveSync with your Smartphone2.

Then do "Clear Storage" from Start\Accessories\Clear Storage which will hard reset your Smartphone2 to blank!

Follow the instruction and let it boots up. Once it is done resetting, first thing is install the customisation pack, I have Vodafone NZ customisation for Smartphone2 store on SD card so i can install it using File Manager on Smartphone2.

After that, then you will noticed that your Smartphone2 is all pretty with Vodafone NZ... (QUICK CHANGE THAT HOME SCREEN! LOL)

Perform a new partnership with MS Outlook on desktop, proceed with the normal setup and synchronisation.

Next, test that your GPRS is working fine. I haven't test MMS/PXT but i trust that it is all good. (p/s: I noticed that the GPRS speed is slower than my previous experience... is it just me or is the setting a bit weird?)

Once all softwares are reinstalled and all are fine and working as per usual, you're done restoring your Smartphone2.



Note: for those that wanting to get Vodafone Live on your Smartphone2? Guess what? I have it on my Smartphone2 now too! It is not just for SP3/SP3i users anymore... what you need to do is hard reset your Smartphone2 and get the latest Vodafone NZ customisation pack from Club Imate. (do it on your own risk)

Vodafone Live uses WSP:// protocol for accessing WAP via Proxy (Vodafone Gateway). you don't need to change anything but just make sure the protocol is WSP://. Anyhow, there is a Vodafone! bookmark in the Favourite anyway...

Oh also... Make sure you "detach GPRS" once you are done with Vodafone Live!, as it will connect using different GPRS profile (Vodafone Gateway) for WAP via Proxy, otherwise you will not be able to access normal Internet. And do the same when you are going on to WAP and you had Internet GPRS connected, just detach GPRS first.

(To detach GPRS: press and hold "Home" key then select 2 Detach GPRS).
