I read (I think on the Expansys forums) that the MDA Compact devices as sold in Germany (ie by nowicom) are SIM-lock free!

Wiz,
Then YOU have the Intellipad.cab and the Intellidialer.cab in English sitting in your ExtROM / Vdisk.
Could you post / mail those two?
Same questions for cprog.exe wich resides in the \windows folder . . .

BIG Thank you from all English non WM2003SE device owners!

You get access to the ExtROM /VDisk by after a hard-reset and just before the customisation starts soft-resetting the device.

PocketMe: cprog.exe is a rom prog and thus cant be extracted from the device . . .
Its the rom filesystem that makes this impossible . . .
Read that in some old thread here

T-Mobile MDA Compact: Extended Rom English

Here you have the complete extended ROM. Now someone please find a way to unlock it :)

Update: Apparently uploading a zip file currently does not work. If you want to have it, PM me your e-mail address, and I will mail it to you (5.5 Mb)

Can anyone PLEASE tell me how to uninstall Intellipad.

Once I installed it I could no longer get any input method to take place other than trhe keyboard. The options for Intellipad and Calligrapher and Block Recopgnizer were ther but it would not change to them when you clicked on them.

Hi Wiz,

I also intend to buy a MDA Compact from T-Mobile Netherlands. You got the English one, didn't you?

I called to the T-Mobile Klant services today and they said they will send me the Dutch one.

I have no idea how it happens to the T-Mobile Netherlands.

Have you found the way to unlock the MDA Compact yet?

hmm the Dutch one?? I don't think that's completely true. For instance, only a part of the menu is dutch, and there is so such thing as dutch T9 yet.

But... where does the unlock tool stay? 120 euro :shock: is to expensive

Unlock Dutch T-Mobile MDA Compact

Did somebody already have information on how to succesfully unlock a Dutch T-Mobile MDA Compact?

It would be very nice to be able to use it with another provider SIM-card in it... :)

To be exact: There is no Dutch language PocketPC. All PocketPC's in the Netherlands are sold with an English operating system. So, the MDA Compact also comes with an Englsh Operating System.

Aside from that, I am not a developer or hacker, and I am not capable of cracking a simlock, sorry. I am also waiting for someone here to find the crack :)
