Hi,

Can any please advise where I can buy a replacement stylus for the Orange M500. Orange themselves dont sell them and the ones I bought from Expansys claiming to be for the M500 dont fit.

Can anyone help??

Cheers

Jon

Shame you weren't looking last week - I sold my last 10 original ones on ebay for £3 each - I know what you mean about the one-size-fits-all 3 in 1 styluses..

I'll let you know if I get anymore.

Had a look thanks but they dont do one for the M500. Plus I would prefer just a normal stylus.

Yes those are the ones. The picture is of an M500 stylus, but the product I received doesnt look like that. If you look at the attachment the one on the left is what I received and the one on the right is an original M500 stylus.
Even Expansys expected them to fit!!

I have. Nothing up before, unless you want to buy one that doubles as a pen and buy it from a guy in hong kong, where it is pot luck if it will fit your M500 or just turn out to be a small back sctratcher!!

You'll be lucky - my local orange store is tiny - not only do they not stock 'business' handsets such as the m500, they'd be on top of you staring at all times if you tried anything. I've never seen the VPA compact in a voda store either :-(

The dummy M500s on display in the Orange shops have removable stylus' already in them. If the store staff haven't removed them already then go and help yourself, you won't be putting anyone out because they are useless to the Orange shop staff anyway.
