  1. Well as an iPhone owner who used to love windows mobile these I what I would love to see in the new Windows Mobile 7 Being able to just use your phone with a standard usb cable (USB Drive, File Transfer - soooo easy on Winmo!) Constant updates from one source (eg Microsoft providing a website with all the updates as and when they are released for the phones - or poss HTC taking this one over as the device manufacturer.) This would make things alot easier for new Windows Mobile users and would mean rather than Orange have updated their latest HTC device ROM but Vodafone and Tmobile are still waiting for the update. Would just make things easier. Office Compatibility - Sooo easy to use! Documents on the go, priceless!
  2. This would be great as alot of the games for iphone have various achievement networks for certain games, there is no standard. Xbox live games on a mobile phone would be excellent. Theres no reason for games especially xbox live games (either adapted to touch screens or phones with dpads on them) to be available on a decent spec mobile phone / pocket pc. Its got to happen soon and at the moment the iPhone is running away with it all but if MS could whip this outta the bag and create a quality, zune hd like handset with alot of the xbox live facilities, streaming movies, showing your status on live, emailing contacting xbox live contacts and also playing games either single or multiplayer with friends that would be great. MS has some catching up to do but has some possible ace cards up their sleeves, will they play them and in time? Only time will tell! :) Hope so! ;)

    iPhone 3G coming to Orange UK!

    Also be interesting to see what data plans Orange come up with. So far they have been in a distant last place with regards to data packages. Will there be an iPhone data bundle, im pretty sure there will. But how much will it be? 250mb??? That would be laughable! It can only be a good thing having orange selling the iPhone. O2 will have to perform well to keep there existing customers. Now people can just say, see ya later, off to Orange! Or vodafone according to this story! Vodafone to sell the iPhone in UK That's going to be very interesting! Eyes a peeled for this one! :)

  7. Hi there, i have owned many different smartphones and pocket pc windows mobile based phones since the days of the original SPV. Recently tho i thought id have a go at owning the cracking looking Samsung i320. I brought it off ebay and the phone just came on its own with no charger or usb cable. I have a few questions on it: When the phone is on charge using the mains charger do any lights come on? What should be displayed in place of the battery icon? a mains charging icon? My battery appeared to charge up to about 20% but then refuses to go any further and then starts discharging? Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a history of battery problems or phone problems? ive ordered a new battery so im hoping that will fix it. I dont get a charging icon appear on the phone at all and no charging led's come on either Now all my phone does is say recharge battery when i plug the charger in. Im thinking about getting a USB charger, anyone know the best place to get one as id prefer to get an original samsung one. Thanks for your help. Initial impressions are the phones the dogs private parts! Its a great size and soooo slim! Im looking forward to becoming a proud Samsung i320 user! Cheers

    Orange leave early and keep my number?

    As far as i understand if you pay to leave early they should give you a PAC code and you should be able to port your number. I dont see why they wouldnt let you port your number across to another network, after all you dont owe any money on the contract as you have just paid it off to leave early. Good luck!

    Tmobile Network Down

    At about 9.05 this morning (20/11/08) my phone stopped sending text messages and proceeded to display no service. Tried my sim in a number of phones and still the same thing. Called up t-mobiles customer service no: 0845 412 5000 and then said that the network had indeed been down since about 9 oclock today and that they are working on it as we speak. I asked how long and they didnt have a time when it would be fixed. This according to the Customer Services Representative affects the South of the UK. Im in East Anglia so it looks like its the whole bottom part of the UK thats being affected. Anyone else getting any problems? Also post any new findings info in this thread. Cheers Tom

    Tmobile Network Down

    Well the network was working, albeit patchy with my phone still saying no network every now and then from about 3 oclock yesterday afternoon. Seems ok now.

    Tmobile Network Down

    Im in Peterborough. I thought it was just me but apparently the woman at t-mobile said that alot of people have been calling in and that they have no idea when it will be fixed! I thought it was my iPhone playing up, obviously being on tmobile not o2, i thought that the sim card unlocker was playing up or faulty but apparently not the case. Tried in my old Diamond and still the same. Be interesting to see who else is affected.
  12. Know what you mean. I think if the G1 wasnt so damn ugly and if they ditched the keyboard and made the device nicer looking, touch HD style, then that would grab peoples attention! CURRENT DEVICE: HTC Touch Diamond - Not bored of it, but bored of Windows Mobile now. Been using Windows Mobile devices since the Original SPV days, had so many devices and nothings really changed. So after seeing my mates iPhone 3G was tempted into having a go with a second hand iPhone 3G 16gb Black off ebay. Arrived today. So will see how that goes NEXT DEVICE: Will stick it out with the iPhone 3G for the moment, but think i could be tempted by Win mobile 7, or poss the HTC Touch HD as that looks great but until the Win Mobile interface gets a complete "finger friendly" overhaul im not gonna bother.

    Velocity Mobile's 103 nears launch

    Spot on there! Innovate don't imitate! Windows Mobile owners always want the latest technology and now! Stuff that certain other manufacturers add to their phones now and claim to be the first to do it, when windows mobile phones have done it for years. Be interesting to see the interface they use on the phone.
  14. Check out here for alot of information on flashing your Diamond, what you need to do and when http://www.modmydiamond.info also http://www.xda-developers.com have loads of info bout the Diamond, new Roms, cooked roms, etc. so thats another good place to try. Good luck! :D

    Who likes their Diamond?

    I love my Diamond to. I have owned the majority of Windows Mobile phones from HTC, Samsung and even Motorolla and I have to say that the Diamond is the best out the lot. I always charge my phone every day so to be honest I dont notice any difference with the other phones ive owned. I screen is pure delight! Its loverly! Gotta be the best screen quality ive seen on a mobile (and yes ive used other phones to and in my opinion there iscreen isnt as good, hehe) Happy with the size of looks of the phone, its great, and being able to tweak it here and there is great to. Who cares if we havent got an Apple Store! hehe! I would rather download for free anyway :D Big up the Diamond! :D

    Network Branding

    You can usually "hack" the phone and load other firmware updates on the phone which improve the Radio Version of the Phone (signal strength, reception, etc) and also the ROM of the phone (operating system version etc) This apparently invalidates the warranty unless you use a specific update from either the network carrier or if you have a HTC version then from HTC directly. XDA-Developers.com is the best place to look for all things to improve the performance of your Diamond. I agree with what you say, you may be waiting ages for the Networks to release a particular Firmware Upgrade so thats where xda developers comes in. There are loads of tweaks and updates already available for the Diamond and its just personal preference to what you install. Beware tho, read the forum thoroughly as doing the wrong thing could brick your phone, as long as you read, read and then read some more and follow the instructions things should be fine. Good luck, hope this helps.
  18. This could work in favour, altho im not sure. I think it all depends whether a piece of plastic is used to cover the camera or not. If its scratch resistant then great but im 99% sure its just a standard diamond cover design, just bigger. Will have to see but I dont think itll improve the camera, but i dont think itll make the camera any worse. £41 total price tho, may have alook around and see what else is out there! Seems a bit pricey to me.

    Camera lens cover!

    Yeah I was looking at the good ol Modaco forum when I took the pictures! Think im gonna take some more and upload them later on. There is a very noticable difference. Dont wanna be taking the cover off my Diamond every time I want to take a photo!!!! Thats just silly!

    Camera lens cover!

    Also all this time Windows Mobile owners thought they had crappy cameras and some of them prob did have, but alot of the time it was prob just the back covers of the device having rubbish plastic covering the camera hole! Yeah go for it Paul, will be interesting to hear what they say about the matter.

    Camera lens cover!

    I couldnt believe the difference it made! Im tempted to buy a spare back cover off ebay, and push out the plastic where the camera is. Its very noticeable!

    Camera lens cover!

    Easiest way to see how it makes a difference... Take a picture with the cover on...then take the same picture with the cover off. (see my example pics for convenience) I can def say that this makes a difference. The photo doesnt look misty anymore and looks clearer and sharper. mmm! Lets hope something comes out to solve this without involving popping plastic lenses out, maybe a back cover with a glass rather than plastic cover for the hole?
  23. Ive tried the Demo of Call of Duty 2 from Click gamer and that happily ran on the Touch Diamond. Plus good ol Picodrive runs very smoothly. (on my Touch Dual it ran very sluggishly so I think the graphics acceleration is working on the touch diamond as PicoDrive runs very smoothly, sonic on your phone, spot on!) Also tried FinalBurn which runs Capcom game roms (google to see what im talking about) Got Streetfighter 2 working on my Diamond and it looks and plays pretty good (apart from the lack of hardware buttons to assign it runs smoothly and at proper speed) Be interesting to see what other games people know work. Incidently tried MicroPool and that wouldnt run (also quake but I think thats something im doing wrong as it displays the Quake interface but when i quit out of it shows the screenshot of Quake itself, weird) Overall im happy with the screen quality and the games that work so far, just gotta find some more now! :D

    It seems to be working again now! Strange stuff!
  25. The Samsung i640v you are describing, where abouts did you get it from? Any info would be great. Cheers
