Alex's HTC Cingular 8125/8525 Reviews

around through the wire. The AT&T 8925, as you may already know, was bandying around as the HTC Tilt for some time. This is because, unlike the 8125 and 8525 (Wizard and Hermes) which preceded it, the display on the 8925 actually tilts upwards after you slide out the QWERTY keyboard. This provides for a more ergonomic form factor and a feel more akin to a mini laptop.

That’s right! AT&T has finally released the HTC Tilt. As a successor to the 8525, this smartphone comes jam packed with Windows Mobile 6 operating system, Mobile Office, 2.8-inch screen, GPS with TeleNav functionality, Push to Talk, standard IM program, slide-out and fold-up keyboard, glorious HTC-style QWERTY keys, Wi-Fi, 3MP camera, Push Email, and 3G HSDPA. You can get this gadget for $149.00 with two-year contract starting Friday October 5

Cingular Wireless LLC's new 8525 smart phone is a slick device that packs a lot of features into a small package. Most notably, it uses the newest generation of data input for small devices that not only makes entering information simpler but also helps make the entire device easier to use.

The first wave of data input was handwriting-like shorthand, which was made popular by early Palm Pilots. The second wave was thumb-typing keyboards embedded into the front of the device, first popularized by the BlackBerry.

Cingular's 8525 more satisfying approach is a small keyboard that slides out the side of the device. As the 8525 proves, this approach offers a relatively large keyboard -- for a smart phone -- without sacrificing screen size or creating a bulky device.

The slide-out keyboard allows Cingular to use a 2.8-in., 320-by-240-pixel display in roughly the same size as similar devices. My Treo 700w, for example, is about the same overall size but has only a 240-by-240 display. Like other devices with slide-out keyboards, the screen operates in portrait mode with the keyboard stowed and switches automatically to landscape when you slide the keyboard out. The wider landscape display on the 8525 comes in handy when browsing the Web and gives the screen more height when the keyboard is retracted.

In addition, Cingular did a good job with other aspects of the 8525's interface. For instance, almost all of the buttons on the face of the phone are duplicated on the keyboard, except the buttons for starting and ending calls. The device also has a jog-wheel on the side and some assignable buttons. The reset is mercifully located on the bottom of the phone, so there's no need to pop back covers, as is the case with the Palm Treo. There's also a button on the side reserved for Cingular's upcoming push-to-talk service. Notably missing, however, is a volume control or audio silence button; you must find and use the volume control menu to change or turn off the speaker.

Communications Swiss Army knife

Beyond its interface, the 8525 is, without question, a very solid Windows Mobile smart phone. Besides running a whole host of applications developed for that operating system, it's a Swiss Army knife of communications, with support for Wi-Fi (both 802.11a and g), Bluetooth and Cingular's 3G network. It can serve as a 3G modem for laptops using either a cable or Bluetooth.

Setting up the Wi-Fi connection was painless, even with WPA security enabled. The biggest benefit to Wi-Fi on a smart phone is that it allows connections when 3G coverage is poor, which typically is the case once you get out of major cities. It also means that when you have Wi-Fi access, you can use a voice-over-IP service like Skype to make calls instead of spending your talk time minutes.


On the downside, I was a bit peeved with Cingular's Xpress Mail for desktop mail syncing. I've become addicted to Verizon Communications Inc.'s Wireless Sync, which keeps my mail, contacts and calendar in sync automatically, even though I don't have an Exchange server. However, Cingular's software can only perform those tasks if you run some server-based corporate software such as Microsoft Exchange or Lotus Notes. You can read your mail without such a system, but that's about it. To sync contacts, you must perform a standard sync with your desktop computer.

Powerful and media-ready

With a 400-MHz processor, the Cingular 8525 has plenty of horsepower. There's also 64MB of RAM, with 51MB available to the user. On a fresh start-up with nothing running, I saw nearly 31MB of memory free. Depending on applications, this is a big advantage over my Treo 700w, which can have as little as 16MB free after start-up.

As a Windows Mobile device, it includes Windows Media Player 10 for audio and video playback. To store your tunes, you'd use the Mini-SD slot on the side.

The Cingular 8525 also sports a 2-megapixel camera. The user interface for the camera is quite nice, overlaying information about camera settings over the displayed image like a real digital camera would. Like most camera phones, what it badly lacks is a credible flash. The 8525 substitutes a lame LED (one of several new phones to do this), which makes no real difference to the picture beyond about a foot.

The device comes with a number of add-on services preinstalled. For example, you can subscribe to MobiTV, which lets you watch channels such as CNN and Lifetime on your phone. This isn't an exclusive for Cingular, but Cingular does let you pay for it on your cell phone bill rather than as a separate subscription. You can also install TeleNav, a TomTom-like navigation program. However, since there's no user-accessible Global Positioning System function on the phone, you'll need a separate Bluetooth GPS to make use of it.

Overall, the Cingular 8525 is fast, memory-efficient and well-designed smart phone made particularly attractive by an intelligent keyboard design and relatively large display. It's an excellent choice for corporate road warriors and geeks on the run.

You Need This WI-Fi Companion

I cannot remember how I survived without wireless networking. I have one in my home and frequently access public hotspots in my community to dash off a quick e-mail or instant message. I have even used airport and hotel hotspots to remotely manage projects while on vacation or on business trips. Now that I can connect to the Web anywhere, I'm more efficient than ever before!

Unfortunately, finding a Wi-Fi hotspot is sometimes easier than connecting to it. The networking software built into Wi-Fi equipped Windows Mobile devices is sometimes tough to use, and networks with encryption and other security measures can make it difficult to get online. The software applications discussed in this article can help you find and connect to wireless networks. In addition, they add some incredible additional features to your Wi-Fi equipped device.

Locate hotspots quickly

The first step in wireless networking is finding a hotspot. Wi-Fi is nothing more than a short range, two-way radio that handles data rather than voice communications. Wi-Fi equipped Windows Mobile devices come with software that lets you control the Wi-Fi radio built into the device. You can use the radio/software combination to "sniff out" the signals coming from a Wi-Fi hotspot, determine their strength, and establish a connection between the hotspot and your device.

As mentioned, the built-in networking software (a.k.a., "Wi-Fi manager") is sometimes difficult to use. Fortunately, there are third-party solutions available, and one of the best is Socket Wi-Fi Companion ( This program quickly scans the area for available wireless networks and shows you each one with their signal strength (Fig. 1) as well as any encryption measures the hotspot may employ.

Fig. 1: The Socket Wi-Fi Companion gives you one-tap access to wireless networks in your immediate area.

To connect to a network, simply tap on a hotspot name in the list and tap on "Get Connected." Wi-Fi Companion will take care of all the settings and automatically download a security certificate if the wireless network requires one.

Once you're connected, Wi-Fi Companion offers a new set of helpful utilities. The screen includes a pop-up menu for single tap access to surf the Web or check e-mail, as well as for launching Socket's Wi-Fi utility applications (Ping and Trace Route).

A special Power Save feature allows you to specify whether you'd like to have the best battery savings, best network performance or a balance between the two. This dialog will change how the Wi-Fi Companion controls the power to the wireless radio to help you conserve battery power or maintain a stable wireless connection. You can also select an "automatic management" feature, which automatically adjusts the power up for better reception, when you're device is connected to a AC power adapter and down to conserve battery power, when you're not.

The Wi-Fi Companion software ships with two utility applications, Wi-Fi Ping and Wi-Fi TraceRoute. These applications can help you troubleshoot network problems by checking the range of your network and will check each "hop" your wireless connection makes to find where delays in communications are occuring.

Wi-Fi Companion is available from Socket Communications for $24.99 and a 3-day trial version is available on their Web site ( The Wi-Fi Companion requires ActiveSync 4.0 to install the application on to a Pocket PC.

Map your local hotspots

When wireless networks first began appearing, a hobby called "wardriving" was born. Users would drive around their neighborhoods with GPS-equipped laptops and map all of the wireless networks in the area. This information could be uploaded to a Web site to share with other users. NeoHunt simplifies wardriving with your Pocket PC. As you move around, the software displays all of the available wireless networks (Fig 2) on-screen. If your Pocket PC is equipped with a GPS receiver, the software integrates with it to map the coordinates of the Wi-Fi networks you encounter.

Fig. 2: NeoHunt scans the area for wireless networks and stores the GPS coordinates of each hotspot.

Data can be imported into Pocket Streets to display where you located hotspots on a street map or imported into Microsoft's Terraserver. The developer has no immediate plans to support the WM5 feature that allows shared use of the GPS data. This means you cannot run another application that accesses the GPS receiver, (for example, a navigation program that provides driving directions) while you map hotspots using neoHunt. In addition, I had difficulty getting the software to work with some Bluetooth GPS accessories. So make sure you install and experiment with the trial version of the application to make sure it works with your equipment before you purchase it.

More information and a link to a trial download are available on the developer's German language Web site ( or on the special English language site he's created for his .NET applications ( You can also purchase the software directly from for $15.

    Compatibility Guide

    FAQ's  on 8125

    Can you use Skype with it?

    We were able to get Skype up and running with absolutely no problems, but we weren’t able to use a regular headset because the Universal has a 3.5mm headphone jack.

    Does it have a Widcomm Bluetooth stack or a Microsoft Bluetooth stack?

    Widcomm. UPDATE: Or at least our pre-production unit did. Apparently the i-mate JASJAR and T-Mobile MDA Pro have the Microsoft stack.

    Will this be available from any US carriers?

    No US carriers are planning to offer the Universal, at least not as far as we know.

    How is data on the phone?

    We weren’t able to’s GPRS worked just fine. No EDGE, sadly.

    Quad-band GSM?

    The version we have is tri-band (900/1800/1900), however other versions could go quad just like AT&T/Cingular did with the HTC Typhoon (quad-band was only available on the U.S. version of that phone).

    Can the camera shoot video?

    The camera can be used to shoot video. You have the option of shooting either MPEG-4 or Motion JPEG with a resolution up to 320 x 240.

    Does it come with a cradle?

    No cradle, but supposedly one might be available eventually.

    USB 2.0?


    How solid is the swivel neck?

    Seems pretty solid, but you probably wouldn’t want to find out the hard way how easy it is to break.

    Does the joypad change along with the landscape/portrait orientation?

    Yup. It’ all automatic

    Milliamps of the battery? Is it swappable?

    1620 mA. And the battery is swappable.

    Comparison shots with the Treo 650?

    Of course. We’ll have a gallery of hands-on shots up later today.

    Does it have Bluetooth 2.0?

    Nope, just Bluetooth 1.2.

    Is the keyboard backlit?

    Yeah, it has very slick, almost sinister, red LED backlight.

    The Blue Angel’s WiFi signal sucked! Has the problem been fixed with the Universal?

    WiFi is way, way better on the Universal, both in terms of signal strength and in terms of ease of use. We were able to easily get online with the Universal here at Engadget HQ, the phone auto-detected our wireless network and then prompted us to enter our passkey and that was it, we were good to go. Switching between WiFi and GPRS was a little tricky, but after a few minutes we were able to figure it out.

    Ability to use WiFi and WAN at the same time?

    Not as far as we can tell, though it’s possible that we haven’t figured it out yet.

    Is it useable as a phone?

    It is definitely useable as a phone, but it’s not great and if you’re planning on making a lot of calls you’ll probably want to use a Bluetooth headset. To be honest, if you’re someone who is going to be using this thing more as a phone than as a PDA, you probably won’t be happy.

    How is the screen for watching films?

    The screen is great for watching films, really crisp and clear. We tried watching videos with both Windows Media Player and TCPMP, both worked fine, though we got plenty of stuttering when we tried to play back a full 640 x 480 res video with TCPMP.

    Is the keyboard easy to use?

    The keyboard is very easy to use, but it definitely requires the use both hands. The keys were also surprisingly tactile, we’ve played with earlier versions of the Universal where the keys weren’t so hot.

    USB or mini USB?

    Mini USB.

    Can you easily make calls without opening it up?

    You can answer calls without opening it up — it has two buttons for taking and ending calls on the side – but unless you use a Bluetooth headset and voice recognition, it doesn’t look like there is any way to make calls without opening it up.


    It has Windows Mobile versions of Word, PowerPoint, and Excel, and you can install a PDF reader on there.

    Phone call sound quality?

    Call quality was about average for a cellphone.

    How are the stereo speakers?

    Very small and very tinny – which is about what you’d expect for tiny little speakers. It’s possible to listen to music or watch a video, but you’ll probably want to use headphones if you can. Still, if you’re hanging out with friends and want to play them a song or show them a video it’ll get the job done.

    Will there be a version without a camera?

    None is planned, but it is possible that a carrier could ask for a version without a camera.

    Can you use it with VNC?

    Wasn’t able to get Pocket VNC working, not sure if it’s an incompatibility with WM5.0 or something else, but we were able to get Remote Desktop working ok.

    Can you answer calls when it’s closed? Is there a small external screen?

    You can answer calls while it’s closed, there are two buttons for answering and ending calls on the outside. There isn’t another screen besides the main one.

    Vibrating appointment alarms?


    Is that an SDIO slot?


    What Bluetooth profiles are included? Does it support A2DP?

    It includes the Hands-Free and Headset profiles, but not A2DP. Our contact at MSFT says that A2DP support is coming.

    Can you attach a hard drive to it via WM5.0’s USB on the Go support?


    Streaming video over WiFi? Can you multitask while doing it?

    We were able to stream video over WiFi and successfully multitask while doing it. Multitasking in general felt very good. The phone is surprisingly snappy, we didn’t see much lag at all jumping between apps, well, except when we had a whole bunch of different programs open at on

    A2DP Protocol not Available on 8125
    PREVIEW: Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 AKU 2 Bluetooth A2DP Profile osted by Arne Hess - at Thursday, 01.12.05 - 23:55:27 CET under 07 - Reviews - Viewed 43205x
    Last week I wrote the first time about the next coming Windows Mobile 5.0 AKU 2 and it's new Bluetooth features and the announced support for the Bluetooth A2DP Profile and today I had the chance to test it the first time!
    What means A2DP for you? Basically it provides you Bluetooth stereo support for headsets which means you can listen your favorite music without any disturbing wires. That's cool and handy and in the future - I'm sure - we will see more and more car stereo devices which supports it as an input method as well which means as soon as you enter your car, your device will connects with your car stereo and you can continue listening your music on your car stereo!

    So the question is how Microsoft has implemented A2DP in Windows Mobile 5.0 AKU 2. So far, the A2DP profile wasn't available on Windows Mobile devices except the Samsung SGH-i300 where Samsung added it on their own, with the help of a third party developer. But now, with AKU 2, A2DP will becomes a native feature of Windows Mobile 5.0 which means you can connect it with basically any A2DP-compliant device!

    The Bluetooth connection wizard hasn't changed on the first sight and provides you an overview about all available Bluetooth devices around you:


    Advanced Audio Distribution Profile

    A Bluetooth profile (mode) for streaming audio, such as from a music phone to headphones.

    Compared to profiles such as Headset and Handsfree, A2DP supports stereo, and is one-way instead of two-way

    Alex's Backup Battery

    A PDA with a dead battery is like … well, it’s like any other battery-powered device with a dead battery. Dark and sad and not terribly useful. No doubt that’s why our Cingular 8125 Battery Extender is a popular choice for people who need 100% certainty that their PDA can be charged – even when they don’t have their charger or they’re miles and miles from the nearest electrical outlet.

    The Cingular 8125 Battery Extender is an ingenious device powered by 4AA batteries. Its proprietary technology draws a charge from the AA batteries and transfers it to your PDA, thus providing it with the electric power that is its required sustenance. Even if your PDA is 100% drained – stone cold PDA d-e-a-d – the Cingular 8125 Battery Extender can bring it back to life not once, not twice, but, in fact, 2.5 times. That’s right: You get two-and-a-half complete charges from one set of AA batteries. And it’s fast too: the Battery Extender takes your PDA from zero to 45% charged in just 20 minutes!

    Now, in case you’re worried all this fancy charging is damaging your PDA, rest assured: Special circuit design protects your PDA from overcharging and short-circuiting. An LED indicator light lets you know when your PDA is charged. And by the way, you can use your PDA right away, while it’s charging – you don’t have to wait till it’s done.

    Love charging? Well, then in addition to the Cingular 8125 Battery Extender, why not treat yourself to a Car Charger?

    Registry Tweaks
    That’s it for software, now on to the registry tweaks. I performed the following registry tweaks on my device, all using the aforementioned Total Commander:

    Speed boost – don’t ask my why this works, I’m not smart enough to know, but it does.
    Use Total Commander to navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\StorageManager\FATFS\
    Assign a value of 4096 to CacheSize
    Assign a value of 1 to EnableCache
    Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\StorageManager\Filters\f sreplxfilt\
    Assign a value of 4096 to ReplStoreCacheSize
    Perform a soft reset

    Disable menu animation – removes menu animation which uses up system resources.
    Use Total Command to navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\GWE\Menu
    Assign a value of 0 to AniType
    Perform a soft reset

    Keyboard status indicator – adds a handy indicator that shows you when caps lock and symbol lock are activated on your keyboard.
    Use Total Commander to navigate to \HKCU\ControlPanel\Keyb
    Create a new entry with the name EnableIndicator
    Assign the new entry a DWORD value of 1
    perform a soft reset

    Increase screen performance – this tweak increases your screen cache which allows yours screen and fonts to change faster. Beware that this also removes some resources from your general memory as well.

    Change "limit" from "8192" (default) to "16384"
    Perform a soft reset

    Reassign left softkey on Today screen to open Notes application
    Use Total Command to navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Today\Keys\11 2
    Change the “Default” key to the name that you want to appear on the button (in my case Notes)
    Change the “Open” value to the location of the program you want to open (in my case “Windows/Notes.exe”
    Perform a soft reset


    Overclocking Your Cingular 8125

    Warning: Overclocking is risky. You use the contents of this article at your own risk! Overclocking the CPU too much will destroy your device. There is always a degree of uncertainty when overclocking CPU.

    Overclocking your Cingular 8125 is a breeze with a program called OMAPclock. It was originally intended to increase the range of the MPx smartphones, but works with the Cingular 8125 and (in theory) any other HTC phone with a Texas Instruments OMAP processor.

    It has been tested at 228mhz and 240mhz on a Cingular 8125 with stable, favorable results. At these speeds, battery life will be noticeably reduced, but should not damage your hardware.


    Upgrade My 8125

    To upgrade your 8125 to take advantage of the new MSFP feature pack, follow the steps below.

    Note: All information including settings, contacts, and third-party programs will be removed from the device and must be reinstalled after the upgrade. The upgrade process should take about 10 minutes.

    1. Download the new ROM for the 8125 from this link CLICK HERE
    2. Select Save and store the file on your desktop
    3. Connect your Cingular 8125 with the PC, using the USB cable and establish an ActiveSync session.
      1. You can connect to a computer as a Guest
    4. Double-click the downloaded file and follow the instructions.
      1. Your battery must have more than 50% remaining
      2. Do not disconnect the device during this process

    You may notice that the upgrade process indicator will appear to stall at around 85% for several minutes. Do not disconnect your device as this is normal behavior




    Alex's Cingular 8125 Registry Hacks

    8125 Registry Hacks

    Increase your 8125 speed
    The following registry tweaks will increase the operating speed of your HTC Wizard:

     Use Total Commander to navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\StorageManager\FATFS\
    Assign a value of 4096 to CacheSize
     Assign a value of 1 to EnableCache
     Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\StorageManager\Filters\f sreplxfilt\
     Assign a value of 4096 to ReplStoreCacheSize
    Perform a soft reset

    Menu Speed

    To disable menu animations (sliding in/out):
    HKLM\SYSTEM\GWE\Menu\AniType = 0 (DWORD decimal)

    To change it back to the default (enable it):
    HKLM\SYSTEM\GWE\Menu\AniType = 6 (DWORD decimal)


    To disable window animations (like in minimizing and maximizing) change the following registry values:
    HKLM\SYSTEM\GWE\Animate = 0 (DWORD decimal)

    And to switch them back on:
    HKLM\SYSTEM\GWE\Animate = 1 (DWORD decimal)

    Scrollbar Size

    For the horizontal scrollbar (the one on the bottom):
    HKLM\System\GWE\cyHScr = 9 (DWORD decimal)

    For the vertical scrollbar (the one on the right):
    HKLM\System\GWE\cxVScr = 9 (DWORD decimal)

    The default thickness is 13. I changed mine to 18 and it's now much easier to use one-handed, stylus free for scrolling and tapping about.

    One of the problems with how the UI works with Windows Mobile 5 is that the "x" at the upper right hand corner of each window doesn't necessarily actually close the applications. Rather it just minimizes them (to use a Windows analogy).

    So when you begin to open up all of your apps and see your MDA bogging down, it's probably time stop some (or all) of those running apps.

    Did you know that if your system bogs down it negatively affects your ability to place and receive phone calls?

    This is how to stop them and free up some memory... First, go to Start -> Settings -> System Tab -> Memory Icon
    Now, either individually stop the running program or just stop them all!

    Notice now that your MDA runs faster?

    Until we figure out another way of making things run faster (besides overclocking), this is one way to make sure things run smoothly for you.

    Expand Default "My Documents" Location To Your miniSD Card

    The default storage of the "My Documents" folder is fine, but if like storing all of your stuff there, you may want to move the default location from the phone to your miniSD card.

    Requires a registry edit:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows CE Services

    Mofify\Create the following:
    String Bane: FileSyncPath Value: \SD Card\My Documents

    Now, create a root folder on your storage card named "My Documents"
