    Everytime I turn my XDA Orbit on it starts normally, however it randomly crashs at any time, more often when the phone is in my pocket, then it will not start again and I have to remove the battery, leave for a minute and then turn back on and start the same process again. The battery is fully charged, I have tried hard reset, soft reset, I have updated the OS to WM6 and try to ensure all apps are closed fully, but the problem persists. please help me with this problem. thank you very much.

I am having problm in hard reseting my o2 xda orbit phone...can you help me?

By a hard reset I presume you mean resetting to manufacturers default settings?

If you can boot your device, the easiest way is to go to Start > Settings > System Tab > Clear Storage.

If you cannot boot into Windows Mobile on your Orbit then the best way is to hold down both the left and the right soft-keys (the two keys with _ marked on them, either side of the wheel) at the same time whilst you poke a paperclip (or similar pointed item) into the reset button on the left side of the orbit. This will initiate a hard reset on the device.

You can find information about loading a new ROM on the forum, or if you send the phone to me I can do this for you. You can email me at james(at)magnapc(dot)co(period)uk if you would like any further help with this - I have used an Orbit for several years now.

XDA Orbit

Unfortuantely, due to the way the 3 network operates, it is not possible to use it with the 3 network. An unlocked XDA Orbit will work with all network SIMs other than the network 3 (Hutchingson 3G)
