Version 0.3.3-0 is out!

- Bug fixes;
- New German translation;
- Added four commands:
- gip - Get the current IP address. If your device has more than one, you will receive all of them. If there is at least one valid IP address, the IP defined by ActiveSync will be ignored. If no IP address exists the command will make a connection (GPRS/EDGE/3G...) and return a valid IP;
- egip - same as GIP but by e-mail;

Hi all. In this version I correct a small bug in SIM card change detection. When the SIM card was changed and you must enter then PIN number to the new one, RT did not wait to send the SMS and the message never works. Now RT will try several times to send the message (about 5 minutes).

The changes:

Alias for commands:
- cb = callback;
- gp, egp = getposition, egetposition;
- elt = elogtrack
- pb, epb = phonebool, ephonebook.

New commands:
- go, ego, getowner, egetowner = get 'settings/owner' informations. Will be useful if the thief or so change that;
- rst, reset = softreset device;
- dkz, delkmz= delete all kmz files;
- dsc, delsim = delete all contacts in SIM card;

New features:
- NONE of features are importante if the SIM card is change. Now RT can detect changes and them send SMS alert to default number. When you upgrade RT, start the program and you will see in Config TAB your IMSI (the ID of your SIM card). If you change this card, go back to this tab and press Refresh button. When the device is turned on (after a softreset) or when the battery is put back, RT will verify this IMSI number.... read more
