Re: Firmware 2.3.81 released - report bugs here

How are these not advertised when they are displayed on the website? :? Yes. The info was on the website. But, the companies did not make any effort to inform the consumers it was on their site. No emails, mailers, commercials, announcements. Notta. The freebie was on their site for the consumer to...

Re: Firmware 2.3.81 released - report bugs here

By the way, what laptop did you get that gave you a free update to windows 7 without advertising that it would be upgraded to windows 7? I have never had a laptop, desktop, or netbook that had one version of windows and then given a free upgrade to another version of windows. Some time ago (before ...

Re: Wireless N..just me or its doesn't work?

I have yet to connect to a "n" network at 150-300mbps. I have tried at least 10-12 different networks running a "n" band router. I just set my router to accept only "n" band devices and my 43IT connects. But it's only showing 54mbps. :( My frequency is 2412~2484MHz ISM band. The router is a TRENDnet...

Re: Firmware 2.3.81 released - report bugs here

Try holding the power button in until you see the power light blink really quick. Release and try powering it on. This has happened to my 43IT off and on. Some previous FW's caused it to happen more often than others.

Hope this helps!

Re: Low on Space Error!?

Thx MM. I was able to clear about 115mb of space. Im not feeling to warm and fuzzy knowing only 115mb is free on the system storage but it will have to do. What is the default size?


UPDATE:

Re: Low on Space Error!?

Ahhhh. I never scrolled down far enough in the "Storage" settings to see "System Storage". I cleared some cache since my first post. I now have 41.18mb of system storage. I just down loaded App2SD. Will that fix the system storage?

Low on Space Error!?

Below are my storage specs and I don't see any reason why Im getting a "low on space" error. Error message: Low on space. Device storage is...

Thank you for the info. I was just about to email Archos regarding all my issues. I think I will wait for the next FW update and see if the issues are resolved.

Re: Why did you get an ARCHOS Tablet (PDA) and not a Smartph

I bought the 43IT for a couple of reasons. 1. My Dell Axim X30 was outdated (but worked flawlessly) and I needed an upgrade. 2. My current cell phone bill is $39.99 a month. I couldn't justify another $720 a year just to get email and have internet access on a phone. All in all I was very happy with...

Re: Disappearing Accounts

Hi IJHarvey. I have experienced the same thing since getting my 43. My Exchange account seems to the account that disappears the most and with no rhyme or reason. There have been times that my pop3 account will disappear but it only has done this maybe 3-4 times. Unfortunately, I do not have any ide...

Re: new firmware 2.3.26 - report bugs here

You can switch between 2.3.20 and 2.3.26 FW's. If you try to go back any further than that, you will get some error message about it being too old for your hardware. Too bad 2.3.20 is where all my issues began! I need to go back one more FW but I can't. Again, thank you Archos for messing up my 43....

Re: Resets until battery's dead

This may sound troublesome but as turning on/off WiFi can be done by a single tap on the desktop widget, it is in fact not that annoying. Well, that is what I have adopted to do since this issue started. It also helps the 43 reconnect to another wifi network without having to reboot or re-establish...

Re: Resets until battery's dead

I have the same issue ever since FW updates 2.3.20 & 2.3.26. My 43 was working flawless until those updates. Now, when I go from home to work my 43 turns itself on and goes into a continuous reboot loop. My 43 is in my case and in my PC bag so there's no possibility of it accidentally being turned o...

Re: new firmware 2.3.26 - report bugs here

I'm thinking about going back to FW 2.1.08. I was experiencing some power and wifi issues after applying FW 2.3.20. In the past I could go to my different wifi locations and my 43 would pick them up no problem. Since 2.3.20 my wifi signal doesn't show on the top right when I go from location to loca...

Re: Broken Touchscreen

My kid puts her cell phone in her back pocket all the time. I try to tell her she's going to sit on it and break it but my warnings fall on deaf ears. That's ok. When she does break it she can pay for the replacment.

Sorry to hear about your 43 biting the dust. I would have to agree with mplant.
