'P' in the menu,its function is that it waits for a while before dialing a num for eg:

727p362

first it dials 727 then waits for like 5 sec and the dials 362, it can be added as many number of times to increase time in between the dialing of numbers!

i use it for my calling card ie call the num and the after a while enter my pin automatically instead of dialing the pin every single time

The comma reminds of the old 2400 baud modem days, lol.

Which version of Chinese Language Input can I use?
I installed the one from your HoFo Official ROM thread but it causes my phone unable to boot.

Thanks.

I didn't try out your rom yet, but did you just replace the 3G icon with a H icon?
Please be aware that HSDPA isn't just 3G. You can be in an area without HSDPA but still on 3G. The H should only be displayed in case the network is HSDPA capabale.

@Hotweiss

Hi there,
I stumbled over your HOFO Rom (not this Ion one) and basically it is exactly what I've been looking for. It is fast and reliable. JacHeroski is nice but after sometime the shortcommings become annoying.

To avoid annoying you, I try to get now to the point. I tried to add Swiss German Input to your ROM, however failed (as with many things on android so far). Then I found out, that locales must be compiled and cannot be added.

Now would you mind posting a WWE edition of your ROM (I don't mind setting APN's manually).

Thank you very much in advance

@ the rest of non-Canadian 32A owners looking for a decent ROM:
support my bid

Regards
Frank

This ROM is perfect. It's very similar to cyanogen's ROM for the Dream/32B and is EXTREMELY fast on my Rogers 32A.

Thanks hotweiss, it's like you read my mind on every aspect of this (including using the Google dialer and keyboard).
