Strange but true, the SPV seems to speed up considerably if you disable key tones.

You can do this by going to PROGRAMS->SETTINGS->SOUNDS and changing the 'KEYPAD CONTROL' setting to 'NONE'.

I assume this is to do with the processor overhead for playing the key sound (windows has always been bad for that in general!).

Ditto!

Incidentally, when pop up menus appear, you can press, say '4' to select the 4th option on the list - cool!

You can also assign key shortcuts to the Program menu items.

I've got the following set up:

4- IE
5 - Settings
7 - Rebound
8 - Windows Media
9 - IM

I rarely bother with the programs menu anymore. Just press and hold 5 from the home screen to enter settings.

Have you noticed orange put some contacts in with just web sites. You can make a short cut to a contacts web site, so if you want one touch access to a site you can do that too.

You can apply speed dials to anything thst Smartphone will let you.

In the Programs menu, if "menu" showing under the RHS soft key then press it. If Speed Dial is showing select it (if not then you cant make a shortcut) you can then assign any number up to 99 except 1 (answerphone). If its 2 digits then you press the first digit then press and hold the second to select it.

You can assign these shortcuts to contacts, programs and favourites in IE, and possibly a few other things - time will tell...

The best thing is to change your home screen to give the most used progs at the top. This sounds horribly complicated, but is in fact really easy:

Copy
Mobile DeviceMy SmartphoneWindowsukpim.home.xml
to your PC Desktop. Edit it with Notepad (specifically change the links for the 2nd plugin called "orangeh", near the top and the title at the top) and rename.

Then save this to:
Mobile DeviceMy SmartphoneIPSMApplication DataHome

And look in Settings->Home Screen on your phone and you have a new home screen to choose.

P.S. On a seperate note, has anyone got shortcut key 1 (Answerphone) to work? I get a "unable to connect" message when I hold it down. Because this is a standard one I can't change it and have to use shortcut key 2 for my answerphone :-(

@Barry - the keyboard shortcut for answerphone on key 1 works on mine. I had issues with this on my last phone (a Samsung T100), so i had to set it up again on that. So, it may be something to do with that? I'm not sure.

Under Setting/Telephony/Call Options, you can set the number the SPV dials for voice mail on each line - maybe yours is incorrect???

you've probably already tried this, but it's a shot in the dark...
