Actually it is unfair to say iphone in the same breath as this phone in this or any review, although for the money this touch phone is very good value.





One major functionality missed by all reviewers I have read so far is that, once attached to a PC, the phone is firstly charged, then 3 options are presented (if the phone is already switched on)...





1) a storage device utilising any flash card used (a 4gb works perfectly once it was recognised & formatted...see further below)...





2)or as a COM port for modem usage to the internet although this is NOT a 3G phone so would be mega slow - although I have not tested this yet)...





3)The major and final function when plugged into a PC is amazingly it has the otion to work as a web-cam...yep this is the first phone that I have seen working as a web cam.


Okay the camera is bad quality, granted at 1.3mp and the lens is not of good quality either, however it's very adequate in good daylight for webcam work. Not sure of sound through it yet but I will try this later.


Memory Card


As mentioned it did take a bit of work to get my new sandisk 4gb mem-card to be recognised.


Firstly I installed it into the phone. The Phone didn't see it at all as a location. I plugged the phone itno the pc and selected mass storage. The laptop picked up the card as a separate drive of approx. 4gb.


After this I created a directory on the drive using the PC onto the card direct.


After uplugging the phone from the PC, I accessed the file-manager function on the phone and the mem-card was recognised. I then used the format function in the phone to finally format the 4gb card. Job done.





That's all for now....

My orange vegas acts strange these days. It runs searches on its own and and does some kind of weird vibrations when it starts dealing numbers or running searches. How do I solve this kinda problem?
