my xda orbit is loosing charge quickly too, if i find a soloution ill wb.
im going to try a thorough clean of the motherboard, scratch connections etc and a hard reset.
looking like a new battery may be in order though..
think there £5 on ebay..
if u mean that u need update for ur Xda then follow this link here
and select "Xda orbit 2" and press continue
then press the second continue button
enter ur Xda serial to validate
then select agree
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)
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.
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 www.xda-developoers.com 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.
