Im quite annoyied at this, i shall be contacting o2 today and having a word with them as im still in my 14day grace period with this new contract i may just cancel it.
Im more miffed at the fact that this new version comes with WM2005, the extra gig is good but nothing major
Unfortunately i am outside of the 14 day cool off period so am unable to return mine. Although power issues & Windows version aside i am getting used to living with it now and really like it as a handset.
I actually found someone at o2 who knew what i was talking about with the windows fones.
Apparently, unlike orange, o2 have no input into the software build for their windows fones other than a few graphics & sounds, they come boxed directly from Samsung. This unfortunately means that o2 do not carry any real software support for windows mobile!! And as microsoft no longer actively support this version of windows mobile (according to their maze of a website) were stuck with chasing Samsung.
I have written to them twice now to no avail (not even an acknowledgement of my emails so far) so am about to embark on some no doubt protracted phone calls to samsung to try and get to the bottom of this.
wish me luck!!! :shock:
