Right-o. I've now had a text from O to say my 'package is now in place'. As far as I was concerned it was 'in place' right away. The text included a link to my 'free wallpaper' which led me to a page on Orange World which couldn't identify me and advised I refresh or try later. Neither has worked and they still can't identify me.

However, no sooner had I received this text, I was off to browse Orange World and check out Frank Lampard's diary. Same problem - the system won't recognise my device's id and won't allow access to any decent ( :) ) content.

All was well before they acknowledged the package. I still have web access to other sites etc but O's systems seem to be having some 'bovver' :)

Uh oh. Is this evidence of incompatibility with the SPV range? Would explain the small print saying not for SPVs...

Posting my post ( :) ) gave me the incentive to try again. It's let me in now. I've d/l my free wallpaper (it doesn't fit!) and some lovely scratchy vid of Crouch sounding off with the usual footie anecdotes.

So it does work with the SPV's - and oooo what quality!!

Don't panic, having listened to radio in the car for 2 days via GPRS, the orange text slightly scared me!

I rung up though and confirmed over and over that I would NOT be charged for it. Also made sure it was put on my account that I checked this!

I had the same problem with Orange not recognizing me in certain areas of the site, then I figured out the problem, in Data Connections in Settings, my internet connection was Automatic (for pass though the PC connection), so I changed this to Orange GPRS when using Orange World and presto, it now recognizes me.

It seems I didn't need to get so 'hands on' with it. More likely to have been their servers catching up with the onslaught of demand :)
