my new phone has arrived and as usual I have ignored the “please ensure you charge your phone for at least 16 hours” advice that the people at Orange always give.
So far it has worked really well. I have put all my contacts into Outlook 2003 and they are synced with the phone. I had a slight problem when the phone tried to call +4401372****** (my home number) and found that this wasn’t dialing. After a quick edit of the phone book to remove those number-breaking 0’s I now have a full set of contacts on my phone again.
I have also found out that the phone isn’t powerful enough to support Skype mobile which is a shame as I had planned to let my phone double as a WiFi Skype phone when im at home. Instead I shall just have to make do with the normal dialing of numbers and talking over GSM rathar than VoIP.
I could always try to get an M3100 instead which has the 400Mhz processor and see if that is any better than the M600 – but that depends on whether or not Orange are willing to do it as an upgrade phone.
I have 7 working days to try this out now and see whether or not I want to keep it
