Hi.Just got my xda orbit 3 weeks ago.But I cant seem to use the FM radio.not sure if its the bad reception. can anyone help?
Help, I want to run Sat Nav from my Orbit but not sure which to get and were is the best place to get it. Would apricate any help. Cheers
The keypad will automatically appear when you need to enter something.
I think the processor is good however the only time orbit slows down is when I use Pocket Music MP3 Player. When that is running I cant really doa anything else as the CPU really slows down. On Exec it never did this.
However other than that the Orbit has run all my programs fine and ran multiple programs, no problem
I have a question for this phone....say your checking something and it says press 1 is the numbers on the screen or somethign? how does it work if you have to put in a pin number or something
People comment here abt slow processor at 201 MHZ CPU. But use it to know the difference. Its a core duo processor and cross icon acting as task manager. Beautiful piece. But dont go for Tmobile MDA III one as they have withdrawn wifi from it. Sound clarity, battery life great. only con is the loose bak end cover.
My Micro SD card today went crazy. I lost so many files and folders. Had to format the card and do a hard reset on the phone.
I use Tom Tom 6 & Destinator 6 for GPS. Tom Tom 6 is better. If you want GPS software with maps email me and I'll help u out.
Got an orbit on Jan 4th. Fantastic! Really good upgrade from Jamin. Then got problems with my MicroSD card - folder name corruptions, then totally lost the card. Internet search reported that a good proportion of all HTC Artemis phones suffer problems like this. Two days later decided to hard reset the phone and start again. Sadly the phone has never completed the reset and I'm now going to have to go through a warranty claim with O2.
The phone was bought NEW via ebay, but there's a chance that O2 will not honour its warranty since they didn't sell it direct and I am on a corporate Orange account! Fingers crossed!
Oh, and re: warranties on ebay goods...caveat emptor.
I have checked everything on this device, all reviews seem to give it high ratings. However, I only have one question, the processor speed is rated at 200MHz, is it going to be enough to play PocketPC games? some devises have speeds of up to 540MHz...
'J', the GPS is free to use, it does not connect via GPRS or GSM networks. It directly links to the satellites. The GPS is absolutely fantastic on this. I have replaced the co-pilot software with tomtom as I prefer it.
i love the orbit the free gps is brilliant. its doesnt cost you any thing to use execpt battery life
Are there any ROM upgrade for this phone @ the moment? I'm experience a lot phone lag and have to do at least 1 reset per day since i got it about a 10 days ago. If anyone knows where (if available) to download a new ROM, please kindly post the link here. Thanks
Seriously thinking about getting this phone, but got one stupid question that I can't see anywhere...
How much does it cost to use the GPS? Is it totally free or is there a pence-per-minute charge?
first few days with O2 xda ORBIT went fine. No issues and everyting functioning properly.
Problem started after a week when the speaker started malfunctioning.
o2 replaced the device after verifying the problem.
Hi iam looking to buy o2 XDA orbit... so pls give me some openion about that pls....
Can someone recomend gps software for my new orbit. For the us, and how much would it cost?
Thanks in advance
I am running Tom Tom but it is jerky, is there anything I can do to make it smooth? When I had it on XDA 11i it was smooth as silk.
In repsonse to Jay posted on 20th, I think your problem may be not pressing the left hand soft key (next to green answer key). Press this and the top and bottom tool bars appear, tap the top address bar and the keyboard appears so you can input an address. From there it should load. Also the bottom tool bars allow you to navigate from favorites.
This is for J
I Have the xda Orbit Since Novemberand have no issues with drop calls. I does'nt drash as much eaither
With All contracts u have 14days so try it and see
