ok so i too have had the message
"The phone is not ready. Wait 15 seconds and try again."
but after alot of experimenting i have found a solution. i thought i'd post this to help anyone else out with the same problem!

I bought an M600 on orange PAYG however on inserting my orange contract sim i can use the phone but cannot send SMS messages or adjust phone settings, if i attempt to all i get is the message above.

having spoken to orange about this several times it turns out to be a sim compatibility issue. orange however do not support sim swapping all they can do is send out sims compatible with the handset they sent you! i.e the N73 i got on upgrade.

So my solution, i paid imei-check to CID unlock the phone, i actually already unlocked the phone using lockiwiz but that will only remove the simlock on a G4 and AFAIK imei-check are the only people to unlock the CID.

once unlocked i backed up the shipped rom to SD as described in the prophet WIKI (just in case i needed to restore it to orange settings) and then upgraded the rom.

i tried several shipped roms and eventually found this rom the
RUU_Prophet_220734_2207114_024721_?QtekWWE_Ship.exe
to not only work but also be in english. its a great rom, very basic without all the junk orange supply as standard

I don't really know why this has solved my problem i think its something to do with the radio rom but whatever it is it works perfectly!

below is my phones new info, if someone with the orange Rom could post the same I'd be interested to compare the versions.

ROM version: 2.20.7.34 WWE
ROM date: 7/10/06
Radio version: 02.47.21
Protocol Version: 4.1.13.24
ExtROM version: 2.20.7.114

I hope this helps someone out there!

for discussion purposes

That sounds weird why it works like that since my understanding of unlocking CID was merely so that one could install different ROMs. Someone pls correct me if I'm wrong here.

it is!!!! i needed to update the rom to get it to work! as above i stated that i changed from the orange rom to the qtek one, hence CID needs to be unlocked

So my solution, i paid imei-check to CID unlock the phone, i actually already unlocked the phone using lockiwiz but that will only remove the simlock on a G4 and AFAIK imei-check are the only people to unlock the CID.

once unlocked i backed up the shipped rom to SD as described in the prophet WIKI (just in case i needed to restore it to orange settings) and then upgraded the rom.

Afaik, if you remove IPL/SPL from the ROM (There should be tutorials somewhere around here on how to do it) you don't have to CID unlock your phone.

I would really like to try this! I am always getting the same error so often whenever I send a new sms. I have an i-mate JAMin, prophet touch X ipl&spl 2.20, gsm 2.69. I can't find the ROM you're talking about in the xda-developer's ftp. Can you please upload it? Thank you so much!

I am currently using v2.69. Does it mean I have to downgrade or test other versions? How about you? What version are you using guys?

I have a similar problem, going to try the rom you recommended but thought I'd post my pre-rom stats.


below is my phones new info, if someone with the orange Rom could post the same I'd be interested to compare the versions.

ROM version: 2.20.7.34 WWE
ROM date: 7/10/06
Radio version: 02.47.21
Protocol Version: 4.1.13.24
ExtROM version: 2.20.7.114


Original version
ROM version: 2.10.1.22 WWE
ROM date: 2/16/06
Radio version: 02.07.20

ExtROM version: 2.10.1.107

Hopefully this new rom will sort my problem out.
