Something odd happened with my k700i this morning.

I switched it on, and I got a txt from my mate - instead of it usually just beeping and showing the little message icon (in the orange menu, by scrolling up twice on the desktop) - it actually showed a picture of my mate which I had assigned to his number, and underneath it said 'text message received from Gibbo, read now?' - its NEVER done this before!! Does this happen to anyone else?

Hi u know the latest firmware for orange k700i, can u still not get the more function? And if I go into orange shop, how long will it take to update the phone?

Thanks

Just went to Orange shop today, and went to repair centre, ask if they could do a firmware update for me, they said they still can't do it at the moment.

I can't remember who said the warranty won't be valid if I upgrade the firmware myself + I will have to buy a dock.

Yeah it is a good mobile, It will still be concidered one of the best in November. The price will have probabably dropped by November anyway. So yeah I would get it.

@n4rut0 : What do you mean it is so cheap on Vodafone. I got it free on a contract which costs me ?15.99 if thats what you mean.

i was goin to sign up for 3G plan in here the $79 talk cap but with LG mobile that cost me $19 per month (2 years contract)

but then my friend told me to get vodafone the same plan with k700i and also the same price per month (2 years contract too)

that's what i mean. ;)

Of course SOny Ericsson is much better. :D

I got a friend who has a spare dock, it was originally for a P900, I got it off him.

I used it, my K700i fitted fine in there. But I need the drivers for the dock, I used my K700i CD (which comes with the phone) but it had no drivers.

I think I will have to get my mates P900 CD, and install the drivers from that.

My phone looks nice in the silver dock ;)

Most Orange shops now have the update available - if not, ask them when they think they'll get it in. If you're an orange customer, we'll do it for free :)

I was gonna set up WAP on my K700i but wanted to ask if GSM/CSD or GPRS would be cheaper. Is data sent even if you go to a new page?

one more thing, for the people who used the update online serice, how long did it take? mine is still on one page:

"Please wait...

Checking the installation of Sony Ericsson Update Service"

Which country are you in? If you are in the UK, and have free minutes I think wap is included in ur free minutes.

Some tariff includes GPRS data too. so...

answer to the second Q, did u have java installed?

i just did it too, will see changes as time progresses.

I wanted to know why the phone doesnt synchronise with the dock. it doesnt even go on the settings. this is a p900 dock which I got off my mate. like this, i cant do jack with my phone, ie: upload stuff.

It always says:

Oh well, I had the dock, but sadly I use apple mac, and I used my friend's pc to upgrade my k700i's firmware, so couldn't install any software on it, can't try it out.
