o2 does not ship with a memory card, they do give free co-pilot software on contracts over £40 though, not tomtom6. 18 month contract at £40 gets you 800 mins and 500 texts plus free weekend calls.
Just to let everyone know the xda orbit is free on £35 and above tariff in the o2 shops on a 12 month contract.
But i went for the £40 tariff for 500 xnet mins and 100 texts as u also get the co-pilot sat nav software free of charge, which i should get within 5 days to my home address.
I am also very impressed with phone, once u get used to the scrolling wheel. Great features. Does anyone know how get free software from the internet? Thanks.
This handset is amazing if you use all its services unless your wasting your money, extremely good phone would def advise this handset to anyone!
What more could you want out of this phone, I add 1 gb micro Sd, and this phone has turning into a MP4/3 player, a very small sat nav with tomtom 6, a pda, a camera, and the size is is too good to have all this function, as long as you close the program proply, the cpu is runing fine. add few more game and softwear, now it's also a game console, bible and ebook....
I had exec before, it's good but too big too use as phone.
O2 xda comes with wifi
T-moble MDA compact 3 comes with infer Red.
why can they come with both....
Hi guys\gals :-)
I bought one of these earlier and am really pleased so far. I've had the XDA2\XDA2i\XDAs before but I am far more pleased with this one> Its lighter, faster (so it seems), smaller - and a lot of the problems i didnt like about the previous ones have been addressed. However!
I have TomTom Navigator 5 and 6 and neither will go onto the device because there isn't enough memory. PANTS!!! . Anyone help with this, I've seen some places say that they have tomtom that fits on a 128mb card. O2 give away the CoPilot software on the website (I didnt get this because I signed up in store apparantly) - so I assume the CoPilot fits onto it without extra stuff???
Thoughts and ideas please!!
This is great. It will even better if they add HSDPA, add CPU clock and increasing battery size.
It run's better than my exec and as long as you dont fill the internal memory your find it runs great!!! I have managed to freeze mine but that was because i filled the internal memory and when i cleared some space it was running great again!!!
If you have found problems with it, thats probably due to over running it but with any pc if you kill the memory you cant do much!!!
Filled with great features, pitty it has slow processor. Just wondering this thing do multasking. Superslow, i guess.
I think some people say the orbit is much too slow processor to be running mobile 5.
What is this about 3 core processor I read few posts back. Never heard such thing.
Is this phone freeze up like the atom exec. That phone is such crap with all software problem. I buy my g/f a HTC p3600 and boy is it such nice phone, no problems and fast.
To use satnav if free!!! it's like your reading a text message, it's free!!!
If you have traffic update then you pay for the info to be sent to your phone!!!
Hope this helps!!!
I have phoned o2 several times but get different answers each time. All i wanted to know is how much does it cost when im using Sat Nav? I thought it was free but i wanted to be 100% certain, one person at o2 said its £3 per 1mb downloaded, are they getting mixed up with gprs? :s Please Help! Thanks
To: MSRn .. You can download software all over the place, on Bittorrent there are even software packs. But you should look for Windows Mobile 5 software when searching on the net. Try this place: http://www.pocketpcsoft.net/
Use activesync to install the software. Good Luck. All the best.
sorry mate,if you are less than £70 contract a month, you have to pay for the software and the phone upgrade.
to bow....The mighty Xda Flame is coming roll out the red carpet and prepare ....
Please help, I am currently having an arguement with o2 regarding what I should have recieved!!
I checked out the o2 website to look at the Orbit and decided to upgrade my current phone to it as it had the gps bundle for free. I called there online upgrades (O2 Retention) number and spoke to a guy for about 20 minutes regarding what deal he could do me.
I had to pay £99 to upgrade to the orbit (I was 6 months over my 12 month contract so thought they could have done a better deal than this!!) and I was told on the phone this would come with everything I needed and even came with an adapter to fix it to my car windscreen.
When the box arrived it is only just the phone and after 5 calls back to O2 they have said they never agreed to send me the sat nav kit. I am waiting for a call from a supervisor on Monday who has apparently listened to the call so I am going to ask for a copy of it because I think I should get what I was promised!!
Can anyone helo me with some advise on this as it seems some people have got it and others have not! I am now signed up to the online 25 tarrif for 18 months the same as NickR, and he got his with no hassle it would seem!!!
Hi Iíve got my Orbit 2 weeks ago, and boy its 9 out of 10. Iíve upgraded my contract and got phone for free 500 min 100 text and all this for £30. However I payed £87 for sat nav form internet. The only thing I canít understand how to download some programmes like games, dictionaries etc. Does some one can help me? Thanks
