nope. I had a chat late today with Vodafone and they didn't want to offer me any deal close to what I was prepared to pay so its been master reset and boxed up again ready to go back to them tomorrow

strangely, I don't feel bad about that so I guess I won't miss the V800 much although the main benefit was 3G data speeds which will be missed but I am finding more and more BT openzone wifi hotspots for my iPAQ and laptop these days so maybe its not such a big deal

I took the V800 and the V3 to the pub this afternoon and the majority of mates, wives and girlfriends were not that fussed with Vodafone live even on 3G and most would have taken the Motorola V3 (given the chance!)

It was nice to get a few days with the V800 but I think I won't miss it however I will reconsider that thought in the new year when I hear more about other peoples experiences and if the price and/or usage charges fall to a more acceptable level given how much use I will make of 3G

if you mean font size then its the original and I didn't see any way to change that anyway like you used to be able to on older models

i read a review of v800 in yesterdays sunday times. the guy was quite impressed, but he took into account the quality of the vodas 3G live service as well. anybody else read it?

okay this I don't like! I charged the battery of the V800 yesterday morning. I have not use the phone except the alarm in the morning. This morning I lost one black bar on the battery indicator and the second was gray. I go to vlive and liveTV and start the news (to test it for a customer who complained not having sound with the news) I looked at it (didn't hear anything though) and after 30 seconds I went back to main screen. all in all 3 minutes on wap via UMTS and I lost the gray bar and an aditional black one, leaving 2 black bars on the indicator.

@vee

I bought a PAYG sim and put it into my V800, I can get all the features of 3g (inlcuding video calling) but when I try to download of live!, I only get gprs speeds (~10ks)

I have had 3g enabled on the sim, have called Vodaphone about this issue and they are looking into it, when I mentioned about this usim, they insisted all sims were the same.

Thinking of going to Vodaphone shop to try a PAYG 3G phone sim

@msmmsm Thanks for the info. I know that 2g sims are usually 32k and u-sims should be 64k or 128k and the thing I mentioned before. I got 6630 from ONE Austria and they said 3g services will not work withou U-sim. I am in Croatia and stupid ONE locked 6630 so I can not use it at the moment because on unlock code yet and ONE wants 110 eur to unlock. TC, Velimir Sorry again for offtopic discussion

Took a picture with the V800, then sent it via email(150k) using both my contract 3g sim, then my payg sim. Had full 3g reception and the transfer rate was the same, looks like it's only the download speed thats increased, upload stays the usual gprs speed.

Is this off topic, ???

WHAT A GREAT REVIEW!
I like the format, and I think I'll use it for reviewing the A1000 and E1000. (of course if it's alright with you)

EXCELLENT! I'm sure everybody interested in the phone will be satisfied.

Believe it or not, if I put an old 8k simcard in this V800 it works! same speeds on UMTS! The upload on UMTS is 64kbits, compair that to 43 something download at GPRS it's almost the same. Download on UMTS though, is around 144kbits. Vlive platform suffers from the lack of speed. It will be upgraded (globally) next year to get the full potential speed of umts!

Good reivew. slightly disappointed with the phone...

Is it sure that the phone can't show caller picture ID on the external screen... ? It is a shame for a phone with 65k external screen can't have this simple function.
