Absolutely excellent phone. Every feature you could wish for, for both business and pleasure. Two minor down sides are battery life compared to standard phone and lack of MPG player.
Overall, 9/10 and a definite must-buy.
VIS ive try finding Htc software to cant find it anywhere htc wont give it out..
hi guys....i wanna know if we could download htc home into orbit 2....does it work well in orbit 2 ?...if possible from wer can we download it...
Warning Warning Warning Warning
Not the quality I expect from Krusell
Superb service from Mobilefun - smooth returns service and very good communication throughout the order process. Unfortunately, this case is not a good fit for my XDA Orbit 2 so the cutouts don't line up and one cutout is a complete mystery. The last Krusell case I bought was for my XDA Orbit and it was much better quality, including a much better fit and robust magnetic catch - this one has plastic fasteners and the placement makes it awkward to open. There's no way this case would live up to its lifetime guarantee
i had both xda orbit 2 and htc touch crusie pda's i found that xda is better in way as you can use just as good as htc battery life is better on htc touch crusie but 02 xda orbit knock socks off it with better responce ...lots of software to down load as well just put in orbit 2 software......
hello guyss....i am in a dilema...i wanna buy a new phone...wa sthinking about buying 02 Orbit2 or HTC Touch Cruise...o2 is mch cheaper compared to touch cruise i think...but i hear many peolpe saying the battery life is very poor in o2 and so also the touchscreen is not very sensitive.....can anyone help me out pleasee....i wolud want a hinest answer...hoping someone will help me out in this....
needs 8MP camera then i would buy it. Otherwise its o2 man stuff that. Give me a 3315 over this any day even if i think nokia are rubbish. Best phone is iphone cuz its fun to play with :)
I just would like to find out the easiness when comes to typing a msg by using the touchscreen system on this O2 orbit II. I did try with LG PRADA, trust me guys, it takes ages to type just a simply one msg. It was horrible. Hopefully, it's definitely different from LG PRADA. I'm facing a dilemma now, Samsung G810 or O2 Orbit II. Can you guys help me here? Thanks a lot.
Just got this fone yesterday from O2 [uk] and although I like it the signal strength is not more than one bar and the wifi refuses to connect with my router. Can't say the same for N95 8Gb though. Even though I had four faulty handsets the signal strength and the wifi were spot on.
Dilemma is - what fone to try next:-))
Two Words to describe this device
Amazing and Awesome
and its 100 times better than an i-phone
iphone - no bluetooth, no mms, no 3G
orbit 2 - 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth, CoPilot, MMS, Email, TouchFlo, Windows Mobile 6......
Fantastic device, why waste 300+ on a i-fail phone when you can have this device, i cannot praise this device enough....LOVE IT!
Can anyone tell me how do i copy the contacts from old phone (SE W810) to this new Orbit 2.
Is the battery life really less on this than on the Touch Cruise (5 hours talk time vs 7 hours)? I find it strange as it's essentially the same phone in a different, imho more aesthetically pleasing, skin.
dl you can use pen or finger its wicked phone i put 6 gig memory card in mine works a treat
hi i am thinking of buying this phone can someone tell me if you have to use the pen to do texts or are the letters big enough to do it with your fingers 2nd whats the best way to get an upgrade with o2 uk as i have been with them for over 5 years always on 12month contract £30pm will i get it free or have to pay for it thanks in advance
I have been an engineer on XDA products for 4 years and i have to say that this is great! i have taken this apart and the parts inside are top quality. An all round nice pda highly recommended good upgrade from the original orbit just becareful of the screen ie dont drop it.
10/10 in my technical opinion
I have upgraded an existing contract with o2 for 25pounds a month which is an 18 months contract and phone was given free of cost. As suggested by some in previous threads, i threatened to cancel my contract saying that orange is going to give HTC Touch dual ,free for 25 pounds a month. the rep offered me this tariff which i found to be very cheap and i took the offer the very next moment he offered it to me. Propably some of you can get this handset for a similar cheaper tariff if you try this way.
I got a letter from O2 requesting the additional CoPilot s/w they sent me with the phone back. So I rang them.
Just got of the phone to O2 (customer retentions) and got a new deal off them.
Original deal taken out 05/02/08.
24 month @ £40 with a £5 customer loyalty discount, phone free.
18 month @ £35 with a £5 customer loyalty discount, phone £49.99. Also one free month rental for all the hassle.
I used the argument (which is true) that when I ordered on 05/02/08 I was quoted 2 prices. I was specifically asked if I wanted the Orbit 2 with or without CoPilot s/w. All the prices with CoPilot were £50 more than without.
The O2 rep (Adrian) agreed with me that this was wrong, a throwback to the original Orbit which was available with CoPilot at £50 extra. He agreed to move me to the 18 month tariff with me paying £49.99 for the phone. I then asked if we could do anything about the phone charge and he agreed to a free month’s rental. So the phone has cost me £15.
I am sorry if this comes across as sexist but I was getting nowhere with this speaking to women, they didn’t understand my position. Eventually I got put through to retentions and got a man. Sorted.
