Could someone please help change an Australian TELSTRA carrier ROM (I-Mate PDA2k EVDO) to a European one? The unfortunate part is it doesn't have a sim nor does it run on one, I think it's CDMA type. So the upgrade of the ROM has to be without SIM. Looking for Vodaphone in Spain or free it. I would also like to know if its possible updating WM to a more newer or recent one. Thanks.

Model Number : PH202A2 A 2
Language Code : WWE E
Operator Code : 54450002
ROM Version : 2.02.00   0 0
ExtROM Version : 2.02.114
Radio Version : HA01_138

You should only use the ROM upgrade supplied by Telstra. CDMA devices are very unique and highly customised.

Also, a Pocket PC Phone Edition CDMA uses a different radio than a Pocket PC Phone Edition GSM. It means that the ROM from one type will not work on another type.

So there is no absolute way of changing it? I would like to take it overseas and use it there, not using telstra. No way of freeing it? I'm prepared to take a risk.

Not at all. It's the hardware configuration that prevents this happening. The PDA2k EVDO will work with some limited capabilities on other networks (it will roam in New Zealand for voice and data), but other operators will not connect it.

If you want to take a device like this overseas then you will be better off getting the GSM version.
