2008.9 updated to testing using the update process posted to community by John Lee (problem was the same before update, was expecting it to be fixed):

Using illume theme,
8gb SanDisk? SD card with clock reduced (10000000)
p1=ext2, p2=ext3 and p3 is a 128M swap
Vodaphone 128K SIM
GSM fw flashed to moko10b2
(No difference to this problem, but it no longer requires up to 10 full reboots before PIN dialog would appear, so its fixed something!)

Ive been using this for a couple of days now and have some more items:

SMS messages are still being held up. If the phone is suspended, it
will wake but never indicate an SMS has been received. They only show
up when rebooting the phone, or mostly on restarting the xserver. There
are a few bugs on this like 1766, but thats not exactly the same and was
supposed to be fixed in testing - would this fix come in as part of the

This doesn't seem like #1766, and I've just received a sms in
suspend... Could you file a ticket? Please attach the following if

  • output of 'opkg list_installed'
  • logread
  • the modified qtopia config file, if any.

I'm getting some very similar-sounding symptoms, so you're not the only one. What happens if you try to make a call (incoming or outgoing) a long time (and a few suspend cycles) after booting?

For me, incoming calls go straight to voicemail (even with the Freerunner switched on and apparently registered), and outgoing calls show "Disconnected" straight away. Do your symptoms match those? To me, it looks like the GSM unit is "silently" losing registration, so nothing gets sent either way until you force a re-registration by restarting X.

I have also done the GSM firmware upgrade to gsm_ac_gp_fd_pu_em_cph_ds_vc_cal35_ri_36_amd8_ts0-Moko10. The problem may have started since the upgrade, but I couldn't swear to it.

Doesnt sound similar - I have no problems with calls - either when awake or suspended. No reports of missed calls etc. Its only SMS, mostly when suspended but occasionally when awake. Get maybe 2 voice calls a week, but 2-3 SMS's a day - well used to, people have stopped sending saying I never reply/get them in time :(

There was another bug that sounded similar to your symptoms though, from the early ASU days I think.
