New m600 delivered today

Recommended Posts

Well, today i took delivery of a new m600 from Orange.

Basically i hate the PocketPC. Ive not even bothered to take it out of its plastic wrapper, or even tried to switch it on. Its just not for me, first off its too big, to bulky, and its not what i want it to do. I want a SmartPhone, not a PocketPC. If i wanted a PocketPc i would have taken a work phone from my work.

I was really swindled into taking the phone. Pretty much Orange refuse to make the Animal Package a 12 month deal, so im really dischuffed with that. So i guess ill complain some more.

I really dont want a new phone, but they refuse to change my current (2 year) contract to an Animal Package without making me take a new phone.

I have the SPV C600 and Orange refuse to have any sort SPV smartphone which is relatively small and people dont see my phone and instantly try to rob me. (Which will happen with the SPV m600).

Im planning on phoning up Orange tomorrow and getting it taken away.

The HTC Prophet just isnt for me.

Anyone else feel really let down by Orange recently?

Er, why did you take it then?

You could certainly make a quick buck with it on eBay i'd imagine, worst comes to the worst...

I didnt really want to take it, they said you need a new phone to start a new contract. Im trying to just get a contract for 12 months, but i want an animal package. I dont wish to sell the phone, i wish Orange to take it back.

Ill argue with them and try to get a new animal contract.

Orange have really let me down. Why cant they give me a contract without commiting for 18months?

So you've got a c600 and you are happy with it... they've given you an M600 that you don't want...

As Paul says, unlock it and flog it on ebay for £200... that's over a tenner a month towards your new contract cost...

I doubt ill sell it. Im possibly going to get a business sim card, use it as a business phone, but use the SPV c600 as a phone for personal use. Does anyone hate that there isnt a really good Smartphone on the market. Why are networks not providing smartphones, but were happy to do so a year ago?

Sorry, but I really don't get this

Who are you angry with?

Orange for not having a Smartphone, or yourself for taking a phone you knew you didn't want?

Flog the M600 and buy yourself an SP5 (O2 XDA IQ etc etc)

Aren't O doing the c700 in the UK?

I am guessing the networks have realised that actually most people who ended up with the c500/600 used very little of the smartphone functions - and lost of them just want a trendy phone - whereas the average pocketpc phone user does make more use of the browsing email etc.

Managed to convince the boss to get me a vodaphone sim, now ill use the SPV m600 as my work phone, resort to my SPV c600 as my personal phone. Ill buy a GPS adapter for the m600 and stick tomtom on it.

Is that a good idea?
