Well i've now had my spv for 2 days and ive discovered that contrary to what ive read on the orange / microsoft sites that it :

1/ can only handle 1 email account
2/ cannot be configured for aol instant messaging
3/ only comes with a usb cradle - i only have serial
4/ is a mystery to most orange staff when it comes to setup
5/ has bugger all games / software available for it :roll:

Appart from that i'm very pleased with it.. for the money i think its quite a nifty little phone although not a patch on my old 9210 in many respects. I only hope that orange and m/s can get their thumbs out of where the sun dont shine soon and resolve many of the problems ive been reading about here... i bet the symbian folks are having a right good laugh at us 'suckers' at the moment.

Great site by the way Paul, keep up the good work.. :D

Thanks SPVman

:oops:

1/ can only handle 1 email account

Yep, this sucks. Hope MS fix it!

2/ cannot be configured for aol instant messaging


Well, i'm not sure anyone ever said you would be able to use AIM. I would be suprised if someone didn't release a multi format messenger for SP2002 tho (subject to software certification problems etc!).

3/ only comes with a usb cradle - i only have serial

You are in the minority I'm afraid. Treat yourself to a £10 USB PCI card!

4/ is a mystery to most orange staff when it comes to setup


Yep. Altho, there is a dedicated SPV support team. Ask for them!

5/ has bugger all games / software available for it icon_rolleyes.gif


It is early days! Having said that tho, I have the following additional software installed on mine already (full versions):

Slurp
Tennis Addict
Casino
Interstellar Flames
ListPro
GPRS Counter
Dockware Pro

Not too bad for a PHONE that has only been out just over a week!

1.where did you get these FULL versions of said games????
2.did you pay to play???
3.Can you D/Load them to P.C & sync???--if so>>
4.Thus can you send em to folk to load themselves???
Great phone,but mine seems very slow i try to leave me memory half full..
the lag on the key press/buffer is very slow on my phone, you have the same problem??
will fixes fix this (excuse the use of english!!) or is it a internal phone memory problem..>??>
& why do orange/microsoft say "keep at least half the memory card empty" does the phones OS system use it for cacheing etc????
& if so would a larger sd card speed up the functonality?
cheers for knowledge>>>>
kmon..
P.S what your best spec for wmv file for movies??? :?: :roll:

I downloaded them from Handango. They should be officially on the site tomorrow.

2.did you pay to play???


Of course!

3.Can you D/Load them to P.C & sync???--if so>>

That's how you install them!

4.Thus can you send em to folk to load themselves???


I think this is called software piracy!

Great phone,but mine seems very slow i try to leave me memory half full..
the lag on the key press/buffer is very slow on my phone, you have the same problem??


I install everything to SD. Do you mean when inputting in IE? If so, clear the history, and all will be quick again!

???? if I lend a friend of say a playstaion game for 1 week and then take it back is that piracy???? or what about when you have finished all levels can you sell it @ a reduced rate??????
& can u put the game on the phone more than once so you can say swap over games add and delete at your own leisure?????
did you see the requst for your best spec for encodeing movie files..

when the lag happens is all the time, like when i take it ouit of the dock and put the code in it takes 5secs for the buutons to respond...

Not really!

I am stuck with Windows NT in the office, and have just installed bSquare USB NT driver, and Activesync USB works like a dream!

Amazing!
