had a xda orbit for a few months now with no problem untill now.. when i connect to the internet which was fine until the other day, now a message pops up & reads, The page cannot be found. check the name and try again.can anyone please help! cheers Rich
Maps need to be in the right directory when you install for Tomtom to find them.
This phone is ace, but do your homework on installation before you start to avoid problems. i.e. Put TomTom on a 2Gb sd card, Install SDSentry to avoid corruption of sd card.
Sound is adequate, don't expect Ipod quality, but everything else is truly very good.
Planning to buy O2 Orbit, i just want to know how is the sound quality of the phone i mean the earpiece and the sound at handfree.
Guys can anyone help, i have installed tomtom 6 on my xda but when I start it, it gives the message "no maps found".
I also work for o2 and i am upset that the o2 cocoon has been leaked - this is supposed to be hush hush until its launch on 22nd june. I have reported this to a manager as this is leaking information.
You will hear about this device shortly.......
the cocoon is pretty plasticy, but not denying its pretty cool, the alarm clock/charging stand is nifty.did anyone see when u wer having a play on it, if it was able to have different colours on the outside screen?
didnt think much to the cacoon the lights on back showing time was kind of cool but general look of phone was a bit poor and the case its self looked cheap the aplications on h/s or good but you can get the same on most modern hand sets the way you charge the h/s is a good idea but generally thought there would be more to it
does anyone know if the problem with memory as been resolved for the orbit or do you still have to download tool to correct it
had a xda orbit for a few months now with no problem till now.. I use wifi to connect to the internet which was fine until the other day, now a message pops up & reads, The page cannot be found. check the name and try again.can anyone please help! cheers Rich.
just had training on cacoon.its bar code reader is for if you buy a concert ticket for the o2 arena.when you go instead of showing your ticket a bar code will show on the handset and you swipe that through.it also is a white flip phone with a blue led display on the front which is quite cool.it also as a 2MP camera and 2GB internal memory and also as expandable memory.also wot is cool.as soon as you enter the o2 arrena a map of the arena will automatically appear on your main screen to show you round.
i work for o2 mate,at the moment this handset is been kept very hush hush,so dont know where youve seen it but trust me.you'll see
when i run tomtom on this fone it says "No GPS device!" can someone tell me wats wrong.. any kind of help will be greatly appreciated. thnx
o2_csa: where did you learn that the Cocoon has a barcode reader? I've seen it twice now and not seen any mention of this feature at all.
i work for o2 and the xda orbit does come unlocked to any network.the cacoon is going to be launched soon,its guna have a bar code reader so u can pay for things like concert tickets,train tickets and even macdonalds through your phone.how cool eh.its not a pda tho.
Can I buy only the phone unblocked so I can use my present network supplier? Someone mentioned a 'Cocoon' mobile about to be launched. Who is this made by and where can I get the details and specs?
this phone is good but i work for o2.watch out for the cocoon that will be launched soon.its way cooler!!!!!
so how do you change the co pilot from the 256mb mem card to a 1 gb mem card.
Please can someone confirm if the device will support the microSD with a size of 2GB?
This is an excelent phone. Give credit to HTC for making it. o2 just bought it from them and changed the cosmetics. Previously o2 started with the atom which was big failure and the phone sucke thats because o2 got Quantra to make it not HTC. and a hit of advice only install one or two third party softwares they will cause your device to crash and don't install free apps they are worse and thats why they are free. overall this is a good pda/phone 9/10 when they give it better camera it will be 10/10.
If somebody is thinking to buy this mobile and have some questions, than read this first.
1- Orbit was said to have problem of corrupting memopry card, but it has been solved. You just have to install a software on your memory card and no more troubles. see below for link
2- Regarding GPS, throw away co-pilot or give it to your worst neighbour as a gift, and use tomtom with it. see its setting on the link below.
3- Battery time varies 2-3 days depending how heavily you use it. Overall its still better than battery time of N95.
4- Only problem occurs, if you keep playing and installing junky softwares on it, which are useless, and only solution for that is hard reset. means installation of all softwares and data.
If you are planning to but it, heighly recommended, while comparing to N95, only camera matters.

best of luck, if you have any problems, you are welcome to exchange e-mails.
