This is by no means as good as the deal when it was previously posted here, but they sold out fairly quickly. Maybe that justifies the price of £149.99 which they are charging this time...

Orange Accessories have the Orange SPV M700 Smartphone in their reconditioned mobiles section.

It's an amazing little phone. Although it's not advertised anywhere, it has built in GPS and a whole host of other features... see the comments section for a link to a review.

Fantastic phone...just popped in my TT SD card and it sorted itself out.
#3
Argh. I was really upset when I missed it last time. I'm so tempted to buy, but I really want the XPERIA from Sony Ericsson later this year. :-(
#4
Do these come locked to orange,or are they easily unlocked??
#5
Do a google - I am fairly sure they are unlockable. I unlocked my tytn and I think the site I got the info from also had info on how to unlock this one as well.
banned#6
Unlocking these is a piece of cake, http://wiki.xda-developers.com/index.php?pagename=HTC_Trinity for all your needs. Voted hot but obviously this one is at £150 with no free extra phone. Also note its a recon and the phone itself is white in colour opposed the the black one in the description they show.
#7
ah it is white. booo
#8
I have one of these. A bit bulky for everyday use, but perfect if you need a PDA. It is easily unlocked as mentioned above.
boroboy
ah its white.booo

Probably silver (like mine).
#9
Nice one - fits the bill as my contract is just about to expire with T-Mob and I wanted a winmo (pro) device still albeit on PAYG. Cheers
#10
if it is unlockable, can i take it down to a high street "mobile phone repair shop" and get it unlocked..

also, is this the latest MPV? i have a TYTN2, is it similar to that? or better? or worse?

anyone else got this phone? what do you think of it?


thanks for any help in advance :)

Nope - much older phone than a tytn2. However, it's smaller (no keyboard natch) and it does have intergrated GPRS unlike my original TYTN.

6 months warrenty is cool as it will be about then that the proper next gen phones start coming out
#12
I've had this phone for a while now as I bought it mainly for the in-built gps. It works a dream with tom tom navigator 6. Initially took ages to get a lock the first time but ok since. Works fine as a phone as well but takes some getting used to not having a keyboard.
#13
Its an HTC - and while the hardware has brilliant potential the firmware lets it down.

The xda developers forum mentioned above has assorted ROMs you can reflash the phone with - but why should you have to do this to a new phone?

Additionally, the screen is just too small to be as practical as you would hope - when my HTC phone dies - I will get a small mobile - and an Asus EEE.
#14
Are the 3G speeds fairly quick? :)
#15
3g speeds are as normal ..

just a recomendation though , update the firmware to a custom firmware ! there firmware is a load of rubish !
#16
I had one of these and thought they were great as a PDA, but not as a phone.

I didnt find using the text easy, as I prefer using my thumb.

The internet speeds are great, using HSDPA (on Vodafone). GPS was good too.

The model number is a HTC p3600. Orange just rebranded it and called it an SPV.

Hope this helps.
#17
Is this better then the XDA Orbit I just bought of ebay :x. Whats the difference?

Also does it come with headset and usb cable, it doesn't say?
#18
I bought one of these last time and it is great. Ok, not tiny, but phone, gps, pda, all in one. Higher screen res would be nice but can't have everything.

I've not upgraded the ROM yet though, which is suggested?

And I have installed the "phone pad" keyboard so can still text one handed as I walk along.
suspended#19
Thanks for the deal.
But, does it have USB Host function which allows it to attach an external HDD?
#20
This is the HTC P3600 but not the 'i' as picture reflects . . .

Really? It seems that HTC P3600 does have USB host function.

Sorry, that's really a bit of a misunderstanding/misinformation.

Whist the chip (Qualcomm MSM6275) supports USB Client, Host and OTG modes it is understood that only the client lines are physically wired out to any sort of ports. Many devices use chips that have features that the device does not have. It's just a side effect of the way these things are designed. My understanding of the Trinity platform (and some investigation when I was playing with booting Linux on it) leaves me fairly convinced that USB host is not an option, even with hardware hacking if that was your 'thing' ;-).

3g is very quick on my phone

Thanks. I have checked

It seems very complex and elusive.
One guy mentioned that TOSHIBA E800 PDA has this function. Do you know any mobile phone has this feature? BTW, I believe that some MP3/video players, say creative's, have this function.

I got the HP iPAQ Messenger 514 when the HP store offer was on this site.
It has an option to change the USB function, synch to PC or host to a drive which I haven't tried yet. But I miss not having a touchscreen, so thinking of this phone for SMS, keyboard or not, to replace my old iPaq PDA-bluetooth-phone setup. Also this site seems to be a free unlock for Orange customers.

That Orange site is just for removing the Windows Mobile Smartphone application lock. There are several apps that can also remove the lock from any app locked Smartphone (check XDA Devs/SPV Devs for details).

However this device is not a smartphone, it is a full Pocket PC Phone Edition. There is no need to do any sort of application unlocking.

Do NOT confuse application locks with SIM/CID locks, they are very different things. Removing the SIM lock on a Trinity is however a fairly easy process.

toplch,

Sorry, I have several Windows Mobile developer boards with USB host but I can't give you any pointers on shipping products.
#28
This is seriously tempting...want a wifi enabled device I can use when travelling later this year. Really fancy an N95 but the cost of them is too much so one of these babies might have to do!

That's interesting. I regret missing that offer even more now.:) One thing that HP iPAQ Messenger 514 missed is a built-in GPS receiver.

Having to use this at work everyday makes life miserable for me.

Orange - worst coverage by far. Get on a train and you might as well switch the thing off
Phone - clunky to hold, clunky to use, totally un user friendly. Use a Nokia and then use this and you will want to hurl it against the wall.
GPS - ok but sometimes takes an age to get a lock

The e-mail functionality is good if your office is set up to push mails to it, calendar sync'ing works well but then it is a Windows operating system so it should be.

As a phone it's a pile of **** IMHO and I would say to avoid like the plague.

Which trains? I strongly disagree. In fact, Virgin trains now have equipment which ensure a signal for Orange customers (no other network) and it works well. I had full reception for the duration of my journey last time.
#32
are these wm5 or wm6
#33
The white one is arguable better than the black one because parts of the phone (around the buttons) is actually silver on the white one but painted over black on the black one and this tends to flake off, so I've heard.

I don't like Windows in any guise, but I appreciate that apart from the iPhone (which I'm waiting for generation 2) there isn't much in the way of a powerful operating system on a phone. I've flashed my phone to WM6 (they come with WM5), unlocked it, though I'm still on Orange. The 3G is great with my laptop (works with Macs really easy too). I have bluetooth headphones for music (Sony), and have installed a separate Mail application (FlexMail 2007). All in all, it's loaded with lots of software and is a great all-round device to carry about for music, films, built-in GPS for TomTom (the clincher for me), games, calendar, blah blah. The only downside is it runs Windows ;-)
#34
You ned to edit the registry with a windows certified editor to allow it to run non certified applications(which are most things)
#35
Is this now in white or something?

Yes... and for anyone who didn't pick it up earlier they are being sold as 'reconditioned' which might worry some people!
#37
already got one!
amazing phones indeed

if you want to run the latest Windows Mobile 6.1, check out xda-developers
#38
There's some grade B stock over at http://www.expansys.com/c.aspx?t=cat&f=1290

Probably not as good as the Orange SVP but there is some cheapies....
#39
I am heavily using 3g internet . It's a really nice phone I thought quite a bit about it, but I feel that n95 might be better. Also I read somewhere that there are some issues with three, which is my mobile internet provider.
How does it compare to n95?
