"a bit of a let down when you come to actually live with it"

The only thing that has stopped me from upgrading my P910i. I'd say the P910 is the better phone to tell the truth. It's sublime.
The p990i, by all accounts, is a living nightmare.

and this is a understatement.

its a living hell, the phone application will crash so you cant make or get any phone calls, but you will only know about this when you try and make a phone call!

nasty phone, and yes the P910i is a much better phone

It is indeed a steal. And if SE released some firmware for it that works, then i'd deffo buy it. But, and that is a BIG but, the software is absolute garbage.
I won't vote on this, as it wouldn't be fair because it is actually a great price for a phone that cost the nearest part of one large when released.
#6
BTW, the w950i is a good price. So i'll give it some heat for that alone :)

go to the orange shop, click on accessories, then reconditioned phones

Do any of other networks sell refurbished phones apart from orange?
#15
Voted hot. Most networks do this with phones that people use for a week and return as they can't get used to them etc. Quite a normal practice to my understanding, but you often have to call to find out more. Nice to see Orange selling them though :) They might, however, be missing headphones and remotes etc.

I also find that upgrade phones tend to be unlocked too, especially from O2. Never once had a locked O2 phone!

really tempted to get the w950i, wanted it since its release, the lack of camera bothers me tho, i no the moment i dont have 1 ill start using it, as it stands, never use the camera because i have it. sods law. Great deals all the same.
#17
personally not bought refurbished phones from Orange, but been told by others that they don't come with any extra accessories.

I have had both the W950i and P990i, they come with quite a few bits & bobs - i would be disappointed if they only came with a charger. This wouldnt be a very good deal if the charger is the only thing included.

I don't really agree with some of the views about the P990i, I haven't the experienced the problems mentioned to such an extent that the phone was unusable or annoying. My P990i was sim free generic rather than loaded with network software and I always had the latest firmware, maybe that was the difference to yours.

Official support for P990i has ended, so no more new firmware afaik. But as I have mentioned the latest one is all quite stable.
#18
My W950i was hopeless, as it would quite often freeze.

Then you had to remove the battery & turn it back on.

switch it on Monday morning & if you was lucky, it would be ready to make a call Friday afternoon.

I'd never get another one of these phones, & it wasn't a one of either. As i had it replaced 3 times, & they were all the same.

Cold i'm afraid.

Had mine since launch & it only "crashes" every few months.
#20
anyone know how to unlock them?
#21
Yes these phones are unlockable, either by paying for a code from orange (about £20) or by taking it to an independant phone shop who should be able to offer the service for about £10
#22
does any one have any codes for Orange
