My m3100 came yesterday and i got to say i'm impressed. I'm not gonne go over it cos your review covers everything.
I am going to add 2 gripes though.
1.) This is the major one. I got the phone yesterday and as i was told i dialed 100 to connect the phone with Orange. For some reason i got a message saying calls were barred from my new phone. I rang from my other mobile and got it sorted. Since then however i have had a couple of problems with making calls, sending texts, the phone losing signal when on standby (or hibernation or whatever it's called when the screen is turned off but the phone is on), and my biggest gripe is that i cannot connect to WAP at all. When dialing 150 from the phone to get to the technicians it eventually cuts me off so i have still not got this sorted. On the plus side, i have made 4 calls and sent 4 texts in the last 2 hours and i have had no problems at all, so i'm hoping it was a teething problem, but i really need to get WAP sorted.
2.) This is my minor fault/niggle. When the keyboard slides out i was hoping for the kind of action you get on the samsung mobile (d600 for example). If the keyboard was spring loaded on this superb device it would have everything, but the way the keybaord slides out as it is seems a little scrapy and uncool to me.
Other than that though, i have noticed the size of the unit is not much bigger than my 6680, but put it in it's protective sleeve and it feels like i've got a slab of cheese in my pocket. I will be looking out for a smaller protector.
Good luck to all those who have ordered one. My gripes are small, and i'm not too bothered because overall it's such a good littel machine.
