Well, so far all good with the handcent app for text improving he stock one - BUT do any of you guys know how to add your own words to your dictionary on the SF? I've asked Orange, no reply; asked them on Twitter (@orangehelpers) - still no reply. I've posted on here - no reply!

According to the manual, it's: "menu key > add" - pretty poor description; I don't know if the magic "add" option appears once u highlight the required word or what, cos it certainly ain't there just by pressing menu key - no-one seems to know, this is just crazy!

Thank you for the post re the San Francisco, I've even bought one. I just have one problem, I can't find where I can download "mcri-system-blade-mcr-r2.tar.gz" I've already spent hour on this. I'm now feeling a bit of a clott, so you assistance would be appreciated. :)

That part of flashing is not needed - it can be used to get Superuser on a STOCK ROM - however if your after putting a custom rom on your device then look here

I assume your talking about the touchpal keyboard.

To select another keyboard - select and hold a text area, you will get a menu with the option Input Method

This offers the list of Keyboards you have installed and checked (each has its own checkbox) in Settings | Keyboards

I Highly recommend this keyboard

Well, there should be - according to the manual - a universal user dictionary, I've since sent my phone back; I can't type out words I use frequently every single time I want to text, I thought this was progress!

Incidentally, I contacted Which? too as they are due to publish their review of the SF on 23rd December, they told me that they have already heard of this problem from another user & are looking at it. Maybe it'll be addressed in their review.

Does the credit take a bit to come through?
I was doing the £10 credit thing, but it got an error at the end, wondering if it still went through?

I have recently brought a Orange San Francisco.

I unlocked it onto T-mobile and i have unlimited internet, but i can't seem to connect to the t-mobile internet even though if i put my sim into another phone the internet works fine.
I have tried most of the settings but on the data connection bar it just says connection failed.

If you have any suggestion it would be great.

Joey

Does anyone know if the white version has a bad quality painting than the gray one ?

Is the white verion a matt paint (as the gray) or a lucid one ?

Is Orange (or others) selling an inferior model of the San Francisco? On their website, they list it with an internal memory of 150MB. Your review cites a RAM of 512.... :D

There is only one OSF, apart from grey or white colours.

There is 512 MB total RAM, but only 150 MB available in the stock ROM after loading of the Android operating system and applications.

Why do some show up offering 512 and others 150 then?

I've also heard there are different screens on the OSF. Is that true? I'm wanting to buy really soon, but just want to make sure i buy the best version there is.... (that is, if there are differing versions)
