Virtual Mobile - Version History

Beta Version 1 (1.0.2.57) - Released 30th March 2009

Device

  • Fix to prevent CDMA devices always requesting VM password on reboot.
  • Fixed keyboard disappearing at password prompt after reset. 
  • Introduced SIM monitoring as an option. SIM monitoring locks your phone if an unknown SIM is placed into your device (i.e. your stolen phone is used by someone else).  This behaviour can now be disabled in the Options menu, although we don’t recommend it.
  • Improved reliability of "Add current SIM" function.
  • Added non-GSM detection before adding/removing SIMs from the white list.
  • Improved appearance of dialogs
  • Further tweaking to improve battery performance.
  • Fix bug preventing looking up of data that was cleared from the sync queue.

Known Issues

  • HTC Touch HD – There is a problems with this device displaying the unlock screen UI on reboot.  If no keyboard is displayed to enter your password, trying tapping in the middle of the menu bar at the bottom of the screen, where the keyboard icon is normally displayed to make it appear.  Alternatively, disable SIM Monitoring under ‘Options’>’Advanced’>’SIM Monitoring’ in the VM application.
