    That's M$ SOP liao... not only outlook... wait till you see office 2007.

    You bought already? If not, I suggest you look for other offer that comes with installation CD. I use open office combine with the outlook from the CD for basic work.

    Have not buy yet. Can't find one full set at such a good price. Most are at S$350 or more. I'm thinking if its 2nd hand, then most likely the outlook is activated already, so I dun think can use the same cd on another computer.

    Since someone says can get Outlook alone from shop, thinking to get one. Shouldn't cost alot, right?

    been using an o2 atom for a year plus and just upgraded to a dopod 810 no problems with the software at all, upgraded the rom and all was good. needs an occasional soft reset but very very seldom. just traded it in for 300 bucks ... so maybe you can hang out at handphone shops and see if suckers are trading it in and offer them the same money!
    no but seriously do lok out for the screen condition especially at the input area as they tend to wear out and scratches on screen affect performance.

    Am I the only one on earth having a stable phone? My Dopod 838Pro works like a charm and I've installed quite a handful of software.

    I am using Dopod 900. It does hang sometimes but I can live with it. It is the most stable of all the PDA I've used.

    Who cares?
    So what if it hangs few times in a year?
    What exactly is the big deal?

    Just remove the back, take out the battery.
    Put it back, turn on the phone.
    All back to normal.

    Hanging is not exclusive to Windows OS phones.

    Hey Quekky, Thanks this one looks like what I should get. Its got what I need without problem and size. Can tell me more regarding the sync part? Can I check my calendar and task while I am on the phone with someone? with a handsfree, of course.

    i tried almost every pdaphone liao...
    and i'm still on the eten m600+

    it have:
    super long battery life due to extended battery. longest record is 4 days normal usage without vibrate and bluetooth.
    256mb rom
    take 4gb sdcard

    and it's the only WM5 phone in existance that i can listen to bluetooth A2DP mp3, answer call, use wifi to update advango, search lexipedia, and type sms at the same time without it hanging. it slows down a bit but doesnt hang.

    1 year liao and i dont think there's anything out there that i'll consider upgrading to.
