you're kind in the wrong thread lol :p This is the 3.0.1 thread, the one for 3.5.x is here :)

Anyway, here's what you need to do:

- menu -> edit layout -> tap on the sms widget -> default action -> open 3D viewer

- menu -> add widget -> email -> select your hotmail account -> tap on email widget -> default action -> open 3D viewer

of course this requires your hotmail account to be already configured on the device :)

You can delete the "old" email widget

Problems: I've installed this set of widgets and now my phone (HTC Mega) does not start anymore. It keeps restarting itself from the windows logo over and over again, not entering home page.
WHAT CAN I DO to fix it please!

done it with a hard reset; anyway it was really needed; lucky me I've made a backup of my agenda on 07.07 with PIMbackup (nice tool, proving to work just fine)

my device is an HTC touch2.
I installed mobile shell 3.5.5 and I think It's a wonderfull software but I'm not satisfied about contact management: by default on HTC when I set a new contact I can insert 6/7 telephone number and when I tap on a contact I can choose what number call or send an sms; with MS I can set 2 numbers but only the first allows me the choice to send an sms or an mms or make a call: ex. MOBILE:22222 SEND SMS:22222 SEND MMS:22222 HOME:33333 GREEN BUTTON:22222 : is it possible to add more numbers?

second problem:when I tap ADD CONTACT, appears the list with all contacts and the keyboard to select name alphabetically; if I tap the "3defò" button only the Only contacts whose telephone number begins with 3 are highlighted and not the contacts with the name whose begins with "d" or "e" or "f". Can you help me?
thanks a lot

Maybe you'd better post in mobile shell 3.5.x thread, this is the 3.0.1 one :p

MOBILE:22222 SEND SMS:22222 SEND MMS:22222 HOME:33333 GREEN BUTTON:22222 : is it possible to add more numbers?

How many numbers can be stored "inside" a contact depends on microsoft outlook mobile, not on mobile shell....
If I'm not mistaken, outlook mobile has fields for:
- work
- mobile
- home
- car
- company
- work2
- home2
- radio

It's true, though, that when you "open" a contact in mobile shell you're only going to see mobile, home and work numbers.... I'm afraid this is by design... all the other ones are visible only opening the contact in outlook mobile (or editing it from mobile shell, for the edit contact function opens outlook mobile itself)

As for the "send sms" or "send mms", it's again true that mobile shell limits that function to the mobile number alone.... again, I'm afraid this is by design :(

second problem:when I tap ADD CONTACT, appears the list with all contacts and the keyboard to select name alphabetically; if I tap the "3defò" button only the Only contacts whose telephone number begins with 3 are highlighted and not the contacts with the name whose begins with "d" or "e" or "f". Can you help me?
thanks a lot

this is quite weird, it's supposed to work the way you described... even more, it should check not only the beginning of the "name" field, but the "last name" too... (this is how it has always worked on my device at least...) :confused:

is it possible to add the following widgets to SPB MS 3.0.1 or copy them from later versions?

-Operator name
-small alarm widget
-new standalone wireless widgets

I tried later versions but they are significantly slower on my old pda.
3.0.1 is much faster, but I miss the above.

I dont think anyone is making widgets for 3.0.1 anymore sorry.

I have a widget pack for 3.0.1 that includes the operator widget but it doesnt have an alarm or wireless widget.

You can find links to what available on the first page.

Well knowing exactly what cab you installed (including link) and where you installed it to would help :)

Also the resolution of your device please.
