My contract is up with Orange soon and my work phone (some nokia thing :?: ) has a o2 sim card with free gprs in it.

Does anybody know if i can install the o2 rom onto my Orange SPV M2000 thus creating an XDA, i think the hardware is just the same isnt it ?

Thanks

Alan

Yes you can, although you can't easily download the o2 rom from o2 as it asks for an IMEI on the site. If you do a google search you may find it elsewhere.

I take it you want to use the O2 sim in the new device to get free gprs? If so this does not need a new rom just the O2 GPRS settings

How and why exactly? Do you mean push email?

Installing other operators ROMs on another device is technically illegal and should not be discussed in this forum.

Mods topic lock?

Blackberry client is not in the ROM from orange for the m2000 but it is available as a service from them,

http://www.orange.co...blackberry.html

you could try a p2p VPN and use outlook?

p.s if you want to stay legal with a rom swap I'll swop you a board on back plate off an XDA IIs ( assuming your screen is compatible - seen 3 versions so far ) or you could do a google search for instructions. Might be easier to sell the m2000 and buy an XDA iis or t-mob mda.
