Re: Fathom Roll Call

Waiting on mine to arrive from ebay...

Mint condition just no battery, but won the phone for 25 bucks.

Upgrading from order of first winmo device to last: HTC 6800, Samsung i760, HTC 7380 then LG VS750 hrmm I keeping skipping over to a non htc device. Hope this is the last one!

Then it's service possibly onto metroPCS or AT&T GoPhone Prepaid.

Windows Phone and Android can wait on me, because I'm a die-hard Windows Mobile user. LoL

Re: Fathom Roll Call

Looks like I'll be a lil late checking in on the roll call list. LoL

Received my new LG Fathom and well I should actually say my LG Paperweight...

I took a gamble on an as is auction for the phone in perfect physical condition, factory stickers and seals still on all the buttons and screen, but no battery and the phone was donated without a battery to the sellers business.


But oh well it was only 25 bucks, I can get a mint condition refurbished one for twice that amount and 20 to 30 bucks extra for a 1 or 2 year warranty...

WOW sorry to hear about that.
Did you find a battery to put in it and it charged but won't boot?
It wasn't a DEMO, was it?
They usually have to claim if it is.
But form what I have followed here is that you got the phone and were looking for a battery.
If you want to sell it for parts, I'm interested.

PM me if you want...

Yea I bought the standard KGIP-400V Battery brand new off ebay, and a dual mode charging/syncing usb cable... Tried the usb cable in both a ac adapter usb plug in wall plug and plugged in the computer all day... Phone appears to be as a dead and unresponsive as a door knob...

Nope it's the actual real phone...

At least I've got good exterior, if I ever need anything to replace or swap out for something thats cosmetically bad. hahaha

Yea I might sell it for parts to help chip in for however much extra for the factory refurbed phone I found.

When I get my camera back from a friend I'll take and upload pics for ya... I ordered a AC Adapter wall plug in as a last resort and am gunna try that before I give up all hope on this dud. LoL

Re: Fathom Roll Call

If it doesn't show something when you plug it in (with or without battery) then it's probably bad.
I just tested this by pulling the battery from my Fathom and pluggin it into my PC. It tells me that I need to insert the battery.
Good luck finding another Fathom though. They're pretty cheap now, and it's completely worth it.
On a side note, I got a Manilla 2.5 ROM built with some updated files. Still working on it though. Won't have much time until after next week to start again though due to finals.

I found that some cables don't play nice with the Fathom.
I misplaced my LG cable so I use my HTC one.
Worst I had was a "Warning" but it still charged.
When you plug the phone into the pc, does the charge light come on?
When the unit is powered down and you plug in the cord, the unit will turn itself on.

If the battery is not present, it will notify you to install a battery.
If the battery is there but dead, it should start the phone and charge it.

Keep us posted as to what happens...

I already got one lined up, its a couple posts up near the top... Trusted high feedback seller, 50 bucks free shipping manufacture refurbished, 70 bucks with a one year warranty or 80 for a two year... I'll prolly get the year warranty, just to be safe since I'll most likely be flashing it's rom.

No LED light display when plugged to my wall charger usb socket plug or when plugged into any of my pc's...

Never knew that... Just tried it as well and nothing at all.

I'll see if I can finish updating my site this week between cramming and homework and I'll upload a Manilla 2.5 ROM. It's based on the HTC Leo kitchen Manilla so it should work well.
I've also pondered updating the Outlook and Email to the latest version (native threading) which will also make the no-Arcsoft MMS patch work much much nicer.
Besides that, it should be quite stable. It's a nice thin ROM right now, which suprised me because it has Manilla on it.

That makes sense to me since manila stays in the windows directory so it doesn't take any of the USABLE storage space available. How big is the bin file itself?

Re: Fathom Roll Call

Got the charger today from San Fran Cali and still nothing when plugged in. No lit led's or anything... So I might sell it to someone for spare body parts, when I get a chance to take good pics of it and upload them...

I'm ordering the factory refirbed phone tomorrow with a 1 year warranty.
