After two days of fighting with WPA2-PSK and getting nowhere, I figured
something out.

My WAP doesn't broadcast the SSID.  Normally, this isn't a problem as I
specify the SSID in the wpa_supplicant.conf file.  But when I turned ON
broadcast of SSID, I connected immediately and it even properly updated my
resolv.conf file.

So, if you're having problems connecting with WiFi, make sure you are
broadcasting your SSID.

I am using the phone for daily use and do not have problems with placing or
receiving calls, nor sending or receiving SMS messages.

 is this phone usable for daily light phone use (about 30-60 min/ day) or

   I have the same problem, and additionally, the dump
  option runs
   without error, but also without output.
  I just tried again, and I managed to get these symptoms
  when running
  the script too soon after a boot.  The second run went on
  fine.  Maybe
  something needs the daemon to be started, and it's not

   sadly enough i currently have no clue what
  causes the lack of
   anything non-ascii, would have expected he fr
  to be unicode driven.
   I think it is Unicode driven.  My contacts have
  some non-ascii
   characters in their names, and they display just
  fine.  I guess the
   problem is mostly the input method.
   in ASU (not in current .dev build though, but in SVN
  for illume) the keyboard
   layout is customisable via a config file and can
  produce any keystroke that x
   is capable of (so it can produce ä, ó, ñ, ø etc.)
  but i don't have a layout
   that has every one of these in it currently, but
  it's a simple text file to put
   in a directory (.kbd file). for now it has 3 layouts,
  simply letters-only
   qwerty, numeric that covers the other keys
  (numbers, symbols) and a few
   accented chars, and a full qwerty layout (ok it is
  missing F1-F12, Pause/Break
   and PrtSc/SysRq but ... if u really want u can try
  cram them in somehow...). i
   will add anther key layout for intl chars
  (accented ones etc.).
   in the end i imagine people might do custom layouts
  for a language (eg german
   would only have ä, ö, ü and ß). romainian some
  other set, danish another set.
   etc. nice simple text files for everyone to enjoy :)
  this should allo for a
   greek and russian layout too, katakana/hragana,
  hangul, thai, ... anything
   really. but right now right-to-left languages wont
  work (well)
   (arabic/farsi/hebrew). unfortunatly that is really
  near the bottom of my list...
  I am using the 2007.2 ( and the qtopia image, from SD card)
  image and I
  am using Hebrew in my FreeRunner (include right - to -left)
  read and write.
  in the qtopia image I can read Hebrew SMS massages
  (right-to- left) but
  I didn't try to change / re-map the keyboard to Hebrew
  works fine for me.
