    TTS Rate is "Text-to-Speech" Rate. It is how fast/slow MS Voice Command talks to you.

    ok thanks. I guess there is no end to the minor tweaks you can put into place, but to be honest, for me, pretty much everything works as I want it, out of the box <G>

    on the opera:config in opera there are a couple of good settings. try checking "smooth scrolling" and increase the scroll velocity to 300. flicks of the screen are very iphone-like.

    Here's another to make the phone more finger friendly IMO. On the Q I wanted the scroll bars as small as possible because they were useless.

    On the Saga make scroll bars bigger.
    RegWriteDWord( "HKLM", "SYSTEM\GWE", "cyHScr",26 )
    RegWriteDWord( "HKLM", "SYSTEM\GWE", "cxVScr",26 )

    I would have to concur..Size does matter, BIGGER is better!

    If you want to remove or lengthen your exchange servers forced security policy that locks your phone after 20 minutes....this hack that worked on the Q also works on the Saga. 20 minutes is just too short for me!

    With a registry editor....

    HKLM/Security/Policies/Policies/000001023

    "0" is locked
    "1" will unlock....no more greyed out!!

    How does a server lock your phone?

    if your IT department wishes...they can force send a registry edit to your phone when you first set up outlook through activesync. the one they send us in our company is a forced device lock with the only options of 1-20 minutes of inactivity. cant stop it..change it..without the hack.

    here's another thread around it.

    Am I understanding this correctly?

    You synch with your company Exchange.

    When you set that up, the security certificate installed a lock.

    Is the lock to simply lock your phone, as in "my phone has been lying here for 20 minutes with no activity and therefore it will lock"

    or

    some kind of lock on activity with Exchange? (and if this, how does it work?)

    Not only that but you can wipe the entire phone remotely including the SD card. You can push the settings back after someone changes them too. It's to secure the phone's corp data.

    Modify the Low battery warning
    Browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Notifications\{A877D663-239C-47a7-9304-0D347F580408}\
    Create a String value named "Default" and set its value to "Low battery warning".
    Now go to Start > Settings > Personal tab > Sounds & Notifications applet > Notifications tab, select "Low battery warning" in the "Select an event" drop-down list and you can customize it."

    Additionally,

    "Change options value to 1073741833... not exactly sure what this references but what it does is allow for the repeat box to not be greyed out anymore under sounds and notifications.

    Here are some more like the above. Create a Default string for these classes:
    {0D3132C4-1298-469C-B2B8-F28CE2D649D0} Default ="Bluetooth Handsfree"
    {10D9A711-14B0-437D-BE30-B8F08951E110} Default ="Calendar" ?
    {1EC3DC3A-49FC-4F9A-B98B-136F69F9AC37} Default = "tmail" ?
    {33765136-8cb9-449a-b020-43ed400ab8fc} Default = "New Text Message" ?

    The ones with ? are of unknown quantity. Hack carefully! There are some others that control flashing and keyboard beeps.

    HKCU\ControlPanel\Notifications\{85ee47b2-57d7-EEFE-8e7a-36480443d084}

    Has something to do with quickgps

    registry key to disable the LED flashing and beeping when locking the keys

    HKCU\ControlPanel\Notifications\{85EE47B2-57D7-EEFE-8E7A-36480443D062}
    "Options"=dword:00000008

    Where do you guys find all of these things? Do you sit there and scroll through the registry key by key? <G>

    I barely have time to read the threads many days, much less actually implement some of these hacks...and take th proper precautions prior to doing so.
