try a hard reset

when turning on you're phone hold down the keys above ok and start and then use something to do a soft reset(it's a little hole in the left side of the phone)
you will see a welcome screen just press the buttun under yes(the green key)

i hope this works for you

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.

O2 xda orbiti wifi connection problem

it sounds like someone may have played around with the ROM installed on this phoen (this is the built-in operating system and software)

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)
