  1. we're keen to create our own SPV skins/layouts and obviously we're not clued up on xml programming. Does anyone know if there's an XML editor similar to frontpage which will let you create the xml code (even type it in) and then let you preview it - rather than 'try it and see' by copying it to the spv and hoping for the best. thanks for any responses.
  2. I've got a vox - orange spv e650 version. I see there's a few ways of getting youtube to work on the vox but most seem iffy at best. i tried the htc streaming media cab but this just won't install. is there any way of getting a decent link to youtube working on the vox?? thanks in advance.
  3. couldn't see a thread on this - forgive me if there is one (and let me have the link!). I've only got these in my favourites so far: diggriver.com sky news mobile
  4. Surely you can change the default homepage to something like google?
  5. just tried installing the cab file on my vox (spv 3650). It just stays on the install screen after selecting where to install (i just get the pie chart spinning icon). Is there any other way of installing or is this normal?
  6. anyone know if theres an in car holder available for the m5000 yet? in particular, one that will let you have the device turned in landscape mode?
  7. We're in the process of setting up mobile activesync on our office smartphones (Orange SPV C500's + C600's). The ActiveSync settings on the phones are all set-up - including username, password, domain and server address (ip address of our exchange server). The problem is however whenever we try to do a manual sync via the phone, it connects but then stops and gives the following error:- "ACCESS WAS DENIED. CHECK YOUR SERVER USERNAME AND PASSWORD IN ACTIVESYNC OPTIONS" "ERROR CODE: HTTP_401" We've obviously checked the username and passwords - the same problem happens for each user. Any ideas greatly appreciated!
  8. works no ONLY as administrator. regular username (without the @ symbol). server name is our server's fixed IP address. for some reason tho it wont work as any other user
  9. we're in a dispute with orange over this. our bill is showing that one m5000 user on our account downloaded 242 megabytes worth of gprs data - in the middle of the night. we called orange to find out what was going on and apparently the phone was on at 1am seemingly "checking for something every minute". I friend of mine (on O2) who had the o2 xda also had the same problem. we're obviously in dispute with orange about this - how can they release a phone that can connect to the internet automatically?
  10. there aren't even any settings for gprs in the gprs section in control panel
  11. nah I thought it could be that to begin with but theres no e-mail account even set up. I've double checked this. the only other software I've got installed is tomtom which doesn't have an auto update option. it couldve been the pre-installed orange software - I uninstalled that a few weeks ago.
  12. when i'm in the office i leave my m5000 in laptop mode connected to my pc (charging and synching). anyone know if it's ok to leave the screen on all day - showing the same thing or can you damage an lcd screen doing this?
  13. I see that aol do some software for the pocket pc which lets you check and send e-mails but there doesn't seem to be a trial version available. anyone use the aol mail software for the ppc?

    Anyone use the AOL mail software

    where can i get a trial version from?
  15. at lunchtimes I go out into town and obviously i'm keen to use my m5000 for listening to music. i've got some tunes in Windows Media player but selecting tracks etc is tricky if the phone's in the leather holder in my pocket. i wouldnt really want to have to get the phone out and start using the stylus for the obvious security reasons - plus i'd be concerned about dropping it. other than starting the music before setting out - and leaving it playing even if I meet someone in town and am not listening to it, are there any other ways of using the m5000 as an on-the-go music player??

    SPVM5000 / Bt15 GPS Rx / TT 5.1

    you can use any com port you like - doesnt have to be a specific port number
  17. got my qstarz bluetooth gps device today. once it's paired up and the bluetooth light on the gps box flashes every second it works fine with tomtom. the problem comes when i switch off bluetooth on the phone and switch off the bluetooth gps box. when i come to switch it all back on again the phone can't communicate with the gps box unless I go through the re-pairing process. anyone else had this problem or know how to sort it?

    tomtom mobile 5

    yeah you need the 5.1 update + install the cab files manually. it's easy enough to do this.
  19. i thought the same. was dead please when i figured it out though - didnt fancy having to pair up each time i wanted to use it.
  20. Don't know if anyones done this yet but I managed to alter the Home button on the keyboard so that it can open a site of your choice - rather than the operators home page. use a registry editor and navigate to: HKLM\HARDWARE\OEM\KBD change the key named PieHomePage to the site of your choice.
  21. you need to download a registry editor like phm or something.

    tomtom mobile 5

    yup you need totom navigato 5. works a dream on the m5000 and is dead easy to set up - despite what some people say.
  23. I've sorted it mate. you have to make sure the phone has the Discoverable option ticked. works each time very time now. give that a go and report back.

    which SD card?

    i picked up a 1gb for £43 from a phone shop in leicester. it's more than enough memory for me.
