“Wasted a day of my busy life on the phone to Orange...”

It is pretty

Bad Points
Does not work with XP Pro, can not sync with a P.C and Orange do not know how to fix this.

General Comments
Wasted a day of my busy life on the phone to Orange tech support but they still do not know why the Orange SPV does not sync with a PC. The whole point of a smartphone is to have a very mobile office, this does nothing of the sort yet. Perhaps this will be fixd one day but the product was 6 weeks late due to field testing and still does not work out of the box. Anti-virus software kills it dead in the cradle and Orange's final shot at fixing the sync errors was to leave A.V. turned off all the time! Battery lasts 6 hours with bluetooth enabled so needs power lead when in the car, the jogger button is too light which means more incorrect than correct entries. All in all a nice looking phone but not yet ready for the market. Mine goes back today, as did my P800 (because that needed two hands to work properly.) A Nokia 6600 is next on trial......Then a Palm Tungston..... I don't trial phones for a living I only want a mobile that has outlook and works as faithfully as my 6310i for the last 15 months.
