It does sound like the call dropping problem is something to do with Orange. I've had mine for two weeks now and not one call has been lost. I'm on O2.
I just bought mine through dechowireless.com and its SO FREAKING NICE!!! They also gave me a 2GB card with it man it was a steal compared to all the other sites like popularelectronics.com or buymobilephones.co.uk, and these guys are in the ship from the US i get it overnight last friday!! The touchwiz on this phone ROCKS!!!!!

jovi, 14 Jun 2008i shall be replacing it for the 3rd time to see if it still drops calls, love the phone otherwize?I took mine back to the orange shop the engineer changed the network settings from automatic to gsm1900 saying that the 3g coverage was terrible and this would sort the problem. The first three calls dropped out. Took it straight back and he changed it for a new 1, got home and the first call dropped. I changed the network settings to gsm900/1800. Seems fine at the mo, but no 3g now with this network setting.
I'm on Orange with the F480. After a few incident free days, I've experienced the calls dropping off, usually after just a few seconds. Both outbound and inbound. Incredibly annoying. I am taking it back for a new model, to see if this fixes the problem. In the meantime I would advise particularly Orange tariff users to think carefully about this model.
