Comment(by Yorick):

 my appologies:

 the qtopia dialer gives me the well know "no network, not registered"
 error message. The phone was registered and I could receive calls.

 I updated the 2008-upgrade image (I have not tampered with the feeds so
 only the standard 2008.8 feeds) and rebooted the phone. Then I got the
 other know error that the pin dialog doesn't show up. After a minute or 3
 it did show up (while the openmoko-dialer2 was opened) and i entered my
 sim. Afterwards I was also prompted by the qtopia-dialer to enter my pin

 phone gets "full five bars" at that location.
 I could always make phonecalls with openmoko-dialer2 in te beginning

 and I got no sound output whatsoever (3 out of 10 times).
 After this the GMS signal was in the "red", and both openmoko-dialer2 and
 qtopia-dialer just stated "dialing" but I got no output when trying to
