fMMS works very well, thank you! I use AT&T, and the settings provided on the wiki just worked. After testing in polite mode, I switched to Havoc mode, which worked precisely as advertised.

Re: [HOWTO] Put an "End call" option in the power-button menu

If you could also make tapping the power button hang up an active call, that would *rock*. The lack of a dedicated hardware "end call" button represents the biggest complaint the users I know have...

No, you can't set it up to do this by default, without modifying the source of the phone program.

Re: Nokia N900 and T-Mobile's 4G ?

T-Mobile's "4G" marketing term just refers to what other carriers call 3.5G or HSPA+. As other people have mentioned, the N900 handles 3.5G just fine, and gets very impressive speeds, if you have...

Re: Change lock screen background, how?

When you say "details of missed calls and received messages", do you mean like this:

13302

Re: "View Entire Network"

Re: Instructions: Configuring the power button menu

First of all, I highly recommend editing /etc/sudoers and adding the following line:

Re: [HOWTO] Put an "End call" option in the power-button menu

I agree entirely that it seems suboptimal. A dedicated "end call" button would work much better, and if shortcutd supported a full press of the camera button rather than just the half-press used for...

Re: IMAP vs Exchange vs Nokia Messaging

I just use ssh from an xterm:

ssh -t me@myserver.org mutt

At some point I should switch to running mutt in screen, so it sticks around if I disconnect.

IMAP worked perfectly for me using the built-in mail client (modest) and my own IMAP server, though at the moment I find it a lot nicer to run mutt in an xterm, just like I do on my laptop. :)
