I have had three in the last month and had to send them all back. Great phone realy liked it but there seems to a problem with the software, I had to use two outgoing providers for email one for wifi and one for gprs. Messenger kept on freezing and I had to reset the phone everytime it was used or you could not add or delete conntacts.
Apart from that all worked well.
Has anyone had any problems loading the CD rom (Getting Started Disc) onto PC/Laptop. Message comes up ststing my installed ADOBE shockwave is corrupt and points to the ADOBE wedsite. Have uninstalled and reinstalled Shockwave 10.1 from Adobe wedsite but CD rom still states that this is corrupt!!!
Any help be appreciated!
Hey guys, I love this phone. I've been using it from February '07. I just want to upgrade it to the new software version but I'm worried that it will not synch with the computer since the Activesynch software on the PC is for the old software version. Am I right ?
could someone please tell me whether xda orbit support 4 gb micro sd memory card.Response is needed from someone who tried themself.
Is it true to work with MicroSDHC?
Actually, I donwnloaded ROM image(WM6) from xda.orbit.co.uk and upgraded my PDA with it one month ago.
As a result, my PDA has the following ROM version.
But, WM6 is too slow to run 'Wisbar Advanced 4', Pocket Plus, PocketBreeze, Worldmate and so on. Moreover, it doesn't work with MicroSDHC.
Could you do me a favor to tell the version of your ROM image which support SDHC?
well i have had this phone for a long while, and couldnt wait for the rom for windows mobile to be relase and afew weeks ago 02 finaly release, i am sooooooooo happy now..........
i updated the rom and now the phone is 100% stable with vista also tried the 4gb card from my brother phone and no issue whats so ever picked it up straight away...........
so now i can finaly dual boot my navigation prgrams, am running tomtom 6 with full europe and us maps and copilot with uk and western europe maps, and still have around 1.7gb space left for music and videos, i'd advice on a good compressing dvd ripper if you going to play movies on ur orbit.......
Hi i have ahd this phone for a few months love it great phone but looking for a memory card now.
I know 2gb works but can also buy 4gb cards would they work also?
can anyone tell me how to install the English language pack for O2 XDA Orbit?
I've had my orbit for almost 12 months now and its been great. The only thing which lets this phone down in my opinion is the camera - it's rubbish(2Mp??!, no flash) I have never had any problems with my orbit and it has never even crashed once (unlike some other XDA models i've had!) I used to have a TOMTOM satnav, but since i had this phone i've had no use for it - copilot satnav saftware is faultless. I now have a hard decision of choosing an 'upgrade'.
Traffic Message Channel (TMC) receiver is not in build on Orbit. You will have to use GPRS only, there is no 3G on it as well
does the tomtom software talk to you or is it simply a visual thing?
it's a wonderfull cel.fone but plz.if someone could help me i read the book about the internet sharing i do as they said but it dosn't work.i can't lunch outlook on my p.c eventho my cel.declare that it's connected.thanks a lot
well as most people has already said alot. this phone is simply the best.
I was trying to upgrade my software and website http://www.my-xda.com/xdaOrbitSoftware.html didnt recognise my S/N as valid one. Is there anyone who got any idea what could be wrong?

thanking in anticipation and best regards.

hey i just got xda orbit with o2.and i want to use voip in it. is there any one can help me please??
I'm seriously considering getting this phone. Can anyone tell me if it now comes with TOM TOM as standard as the specs on this website says Tom Tom Navigator 6 but other people say they have had to go out and buy Tom Tom software? Also, does anyone know any sites that offer good deals on this via a monthly contract? Thanks...
Can somebody help me?
how do I connect orbit to Motorola bluetooth stereo headset HT820?
and how do u disable password that is asked everytime u turn on your devices?
Thank u very much
I just wondering does XDA Orbit has the built in Traffic Message Channel (TMC) receiver?
I am using Tom Tom and don't know if without using GPRS connection traffic jam news will reach my PDA?
thanks for answers!
I have had this phone about two months now and I am really pleased with it. I have had two or 3 earlier XDAs which have been fine but I got fed up of them not being very pocketable so I went for an Orion. This was again OK but it was too small and I missed the touch screen. So I went for th eOrbit which was a nice size, pocketable but still a big enough screen. I use it mainly for diary and contacts so in this respect it is as good as all the other XDAs I have had. I got the CoPilot with it but found this was poor compared to the TomTom I had used previously. I bought the TomTom software and it has worked perfectly. As a regular XDA user this is the best of the bunch and I particularly like the TomTom satnav capability.
