Om2008.12 - Can't receive SMS

I have this problem.  Only work-around I have found is to minimise what
is running so when the phone wakes up it does not have a backload of
threads to process.  In particular, the "batget" application can have
dozens of instances running blocking which seem to "block" each other
for awhile.  Flash the GSM firmware with moko10 - may help.

Try removing the battery module and see if it improves - unfortunately,
this means no battery icon :(

The upside - its better than earlier versions - at least it wakes up ...
mostly :)
