Welcome to our page. Please find here the list of our activities on mobilism. Beside spamming eachother's PM inbox, we do try to help this community by working in the background - well, not always - and also offering concrete assistance, while adding some fun and activities to the site.

These are the sections/topics we currently manage:

Please PM to Guy1731 if you have any comments or ideas about these items.

Error report template when an app or game isn't running on your device:

If an application or game doesn't run normally - or not at all - on your device, you can report that in the concerned topic and eventually someone might help or assist you to work something out. Please be as complete as possible when describing the problem you encounter. Simply posting it "doesn't work" isn't a usable information to get an idea about your problem. In order to make use of this community's huge knowledge, we need to get a most concrete possible 'picture' of your problem.

So, in order to get help please provide the following information:

  1. What download did you use to install this release? (Releaser's download package / CAB file / other...)
  2. What device did you install this to?
  3. What's the operating system of your device?
  4. Do you still have the original Rom installed on your device?
  5. Do you get an error message?
  6. Please describe as exactly as possible at what point your problem occurs.
  7. If you downloaded a release from this site, did you try to download and install the demo or trial from the developer's site first? Do you have the same problem with that one?
  8. Would you be prepared to spend some WRZ$ for someone to help you?

Of course we can't guarantee anything, but with this information your chances to get things going can only grow! ;)

False Virus alert?

Most antivirus programs depend almost exclusively on a database of known patterns or 'signatures' of malicious code in order to provide 'heuristic' protection. Unfortunately, these signatures usually include patterns of file-packing, which in itself is not harmful in any way. As such, it would be possible to encounter a false-positive when a totally harmless file uses the same method of packing as a known virus.

However, it wouldn't be prudent to simply trust an executable for this reason alone. A good point to consider would be the reliability and reputation of the group and, more importantly, the poster releasing such an executable. Also, feedback of other users is an excellent indication of whether the executable is truly malware. If the executable fails to deliver the results it was designed for, or if too many reports of malware come in, then chances are it is.

In the latter situation, consider running the executable in a 'sandbox' environment such as Virtual PC. In the former situation, simply let your antivirus program quarantine the file and/or dispose of it. (Mar 12, 2011 - LY)

General note from the services team:

Please pay attention to some common errors that are sometimes made.

  • 1/ Some characters are often mixed up:

    - Letter "O" with number "0"
    - Letter "B" with number "8"
    - Letter "S" with number "5"
    - Letter "I" with number "1"
    - Letter "A" with number "4"

    Be aware an error can be made by providing your user- or devise ID and also when you enter the information needed. Sometimes - if possible - it's more safe to copy/paste the information in the registration window, to prevent accidental character mismatch errors. But! ---> see 2/

  • 2/ Although copy/paste is the best way to avoid errors when entering information, always watch out for accidental added spaces when you copy/paste the information to your notepad or directly in the registration window on your device

  • 3/ Sometimes - although you introduce your owner name in lower case - the device forces your first and last name to start with a capital letter. Double check if the given owner Name is really the one displayed on your device. Some information are case-sensitive.

    :!: Btw, the "owner name" or "Personal ID" is what you enter under START --> SETTINGS --> PERSONAL --> OWNER INFORMATION --> "Name:" ...

    :!: Your Owner Name is not quite the same as the "Device Name" or "Device ID" which appears in the ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center window when you connect your device to a desktop PC, but it is quite common for these to be confused!

    If your Owner Name contains accented or non-Latin characters (such as Japanese or Chinese) then some registration systems probably won't cope. If so, then we won't be able to help you as we can only use provided help. you will probably need to use another Owner name.

    Note:
    • Type ALT CAP H on your BlackBerry keyboard and a screen will show up showing you your PIN and your IMEI.
    • To Find the IMEI Number on a Mobile Phone type *# 0 6 #

  • 4/ After entering your personal information into the appropriate case of the registration window, be sure to hit the right button for registration to fulfil. Mostly used "buttons" are OK, REGISTER , ENTER , CONTINUE or RETURN. Never tap the upper right "OK" or "X" button that takes you back to the start page closing the registration page without registering.

  • 5/ Please always use correct terms when communicating.
  • 6/ Also, remember - although we have tremendous admiration for them and are secretly jealous as we would like to be like them or to have at least a small piece of knowledge about it - we ain't real experts. We can only give information or clues for programs and applications released on this site with included help or other method. Also, please always give a link to the release post you require information for, to be sure we are talking about the correct version. If you need help for a program or game not yet released on this forum, feel free to post a request in the specific platform's requests topic. Note that help will not always work with updated versions of software.
  • 7/ Last but not least: some programs ask for a device-related info. On the registration page you will find a number or character string, also sometimes called "device ID". If this is the case, then you need to provide us this code in order to give you information. Some known programs that register this way are: Memmaid, Warfare Inc, Allreader, Tots 'n togs, Handy switcher, LoveMe! Shootme! Allreader and TouchPal. Always look carefully at the registration page on your device for such a code.

  • 8/ The service is managed by Guy1731 Image and andree Image , the Mobilism Services team. If you want to keep your name secret, just ask for help here - while mentioning "PRIVATE" as your owner ID - and send one of us your owner name by PM. We then keep your name in our "private" list and shall reply accordingly every time after you request help.

    Please note: we never give help by email.

Under this conditions, it is a pleasure running this services for you, guys... :D

:!: Please ALWAYS give feedback when help has been provided, so we know if it worked for you and eventually give it another shot... Thanks!
