  • Enclosed email addresses: it is now possible to extract an email address from a text message and then add it to a Contact’s entry
  • Incoming text messages: partial black screen when message exceeds two lines no longer occurs


Partial fixes:

  • Contacts backup: very rarely, the .vcf backup created will turn out to be an unusable 0kb file – for this reason, all backups should be checked immediately after creation; if this is issue has occurred, please contact Punkt.’s Customer Support team for a workaround
  • Home screen: returning from a notification may cause the Home screen to be displayed incorrectly – this can be resolved by locking and unlocking the phone
  • Call key: most bugs related to using the Call key other than for making calls have been fixed, but some remain
  • Contacts: calling and texting a contact for whom only one number is listed is now a one-step process, except when this is done from the search screen


Known issues:

  • SMS messaging: when creating a message in the usual way, if a recipient has multiple numbers then only the first number that was originally saved will be available for texting to. Circumvention: to send a text to the recipient’s other number(s), begin the process from the Contacts list. Additionally, consider deleting the contact’s entry completely and then creating a new entry for them; while entering their phone numbers, ensure that the first one to be entered is the number most likely to be texted to.
  • Reminders: a Note’s pop-up Reminder notification is currently only shown for 60 seconds (the Note itself remains until it is deleted by the user)
  • System languages: some text strings remain translated
  • Starting up: there is a delay of 5-10 seconds after entering a SIM PIN during start-up
  • Adjusting call volume via the Calls Options menu: this does not work correctly if the phone is connected to a Bluetooth device
  • General: when unlocking the keypad, the screen will sometimes be incorrectly illuminated. Locking and unlocking again will bring it back to normal.


Known issues in Pigeon v1.0.0777

  • Displaying images: when selecting received images in a message thread, the screen becomes darker.
  • Forwarding a video or document file: this sometimes causes the MP02 to return to the Home screen.
  • Exiting Pigeon: this may occasionally cause the system to freeze for a limited period.
  • Accessing a new message from a notification: the message is highlighted but its font size may not be enlarged.
  • Notifications: these may sometimes be produced with a slight delay, especially if the MP02 is locked.
  • Incoming calls: these may occasionally not be received, especially if the MP02 is locked.
  • Groups: it is not yet possible to appoint a group member as an additional
  • Notifications options screen: this currently has a scrolling issue.

  • Message thread: moving through a message thread will sometimes cause the highlighting to jump too
  • Confirmation messages: some of these still appear in English, despite the MP02 being set to a different language.
