    Desire A8183 turning into A8181?

    Thanks UK 3G band is 2100 and AT&T in the US uses 850/1900, so having 850/2100 on the A8183 will get me 3G in both places. I am hunting for an A8183 to buy in or ship to the UK.

    Desire A8183 turning into A8181?

    Did you get an answer to this ? Am curious to know if the difference between and A8181 and A8183 is software only or if there are hardware (for different 3G bands) too. I need a phone to work in US and UK on 3G and (so far) think I need the A8183 to do that.
  3. Ok, so finally having settled on upgrading my TyTNII to a Touch HD, I called 'O'. Having been an 'O' customer for circa 10 years I thought, in my naivety, that a good deal would be on offer. I have always been on 12 month contracts as I like to change my phone to the 'latest & greatest' as often as I can so ideally wanted to stay that way. It turned out not to be an option unless I wanted to pay through the nose for the privilege of decent minutes/texts/Net Access. In my conversation on Monday the 10th Nov, I was offered the Touch HD for £49.99 with 600 mins, unlimited texts & data for £32.50 or 1200 mins, 500 texts and unlimited data for £30; both on an 18 month contract .... As I really wanted a 12 month, I said I'd sleep on it and call back the next day. ...the next day I decided to go for the £30 option and suffer the phone for a little longer (it better be good !!) so called 'O' back to do the deal.... Only to be told that the phone was now £65 and the lady in the retention team couldnt get the price any lower ... "Don't worry" she said .... "I will sort this out and call you back later today..." ...later that day No call from 'O' ...the next day I called 'O' to check that all was ok only to be told that "We received an email at 4:30 yesterday saying would can no longer discount the Touch HD and it will cost you £130 to upgrade" .... "We will not honour any previous offer made to you" ... "Those are our business rules" Fired up internet explorer and went on to 'Os' upgrade site, there on my screen was the Touch HD for £49.99 (discounted by £80 by the web site auto calculations) on a Racoon 40 tarrif (1200 mins, 500 texts, unlimited data) for £40. So I called them to ask about loyalty discount and was offered 10% off the tarrif straight away ... ok not as good as my original offer but the best I am going to get. Order placed, order confirmation email received, sit back and look forward to the delivery............ .... Yesterday (Monday 15th) I called 'O' to check on the status of my order (because my Credit Card had not yet been charged) only to be told "The Touch HD is out of stock, therefore your order will be cancelled" not held until stocks arrive, CANCELLED!!! I have been a loyal customer for a lot of years and do not expect to be treated like this (even if I was a new customer) and am VERY angry, 'O' just simply do not care.
  4. I have just tried to install the latest trial version on my TyTNII which is running WM6.1. When I try to run it I get an error "missingmethodexception" has anybody seen or even resolved this ?
  5. Thinking of upgrading my M600 to this. Does this phone have built in GPS ? Can find no mention of it in the spec lists ? Also wondering if i should wait a little while for Windows Mobile 6, but not sure when handsets will be available eg the HTC P4550, can you offer any advice ? Thanks
  6. After searching the forums here trying to find how to do this, seeing various hints and even one post saying its not possible, I finally found this .... http://blog.webtechy.co.uk/PermaLink,guid,...6e1a572f98.aspx It worked first time for me. Hope it helps you too cheers
  7. I loaded the PHM editor with no trouble so am I correct to assume that the 'Default_Cert_SPCS.cab' did work afterall ?
  8. Got my M600 from Orange yesterday as a free upgrade and now comes the task of changing it to the way I want. Have been trying to edit the registry with 'MobileRegistryEditor' and keep getting 'Access Is Denied' Perhaps I need a different registry editor ? I have installed 'Unlock_Ext_Rom_Wizard.cab' and 'Default_Cert_SPCS.cab' and can't notice any difference. What am I missing ? Does the Orange De-Cert webasite work for the M600 or is that just for Smartphones and not PPC's ? Please help !! Thanks
  9. Any idea how to display the date just as day/month, i dont really need the year and it uses up too much space !!
  10. Thanks for that, the code at the link you gave does give me the desired data, however it doesnt seem to let me change the font size. Could you or anyone else give me an idea what i'm doing wrong ? <plugin file="sysplug.dll" clsid="{865A354A-4A96-4687-B001-C155DC0DBE76}" height="20" width="100%" wrap="1" autohide="1"> <format font-size="12" font-face="nina" font-weight="normal" padding-bottom="3" padding-top="2"/> <format state="selected" font-face="nina" font-size="12" font-weight="normal" padding-bottom="3" padding-top="2"/> <background> <format state="selected" bgcolor="COLOR_HOMEHIGHLIGHT"/> </background> <label y="0"> <text><time/> - <subject/> (<location/>)</text></label> </plugin>
  11. Anybody know why, and how can I stop appointments from displaying on my home page the day before they are due ? Failing that, is there a way to display the date along with the time etc for the event ? Thanks
  12. That doesn't make any difference, i already tried that.
  13. Remy Here is my entire home screen, I have changed the format settings as you advise, but the Time and Date line keeps reverting back to size 12 normal weight when I move up and down the plugins on

  14. The plugin begins right after the bottom of the preceding one and has a height (measured from the top down) that is specified in the code... eg: <plugin clsid="{AAEC6C66-F860-4513-8966-1FE9FA678987}" height="20"> The width can also be controlled (you can actually have plugins wider than the screen to hide things) but I think the default is full screen width.
