Orange Rome Mobile Phone Review (October 2009)
Please don't buy this phone.
I was seduced by the 'quite' high-spec camera and bluetooth at a very reasonable price, but it was a very bad choice.
1. When you write a text the only options appear to be ALL UPPER CASE or all lower case; unless you're prepared to keep changing the case and tap out each character individually.
2. There doesn't appear to be any way to add new words to the phone's dictionary.
3. You have to use one of the rediculous in-built 'text notification' tones and these last for several seconds. What's wrong with a simple 'bleep bleep'? I have it set to 'silent' when a text arrives because the tones are just embarrasing!
4. You can't see the screen in bright sunlight.
You have been warned, purchase at your peril!
