Orange SPV M600 and personalisation on Orange World

I’ve had an Orange SPV M600 for a while now, and I think it is excellent. I even have TomTom installed and with my bluetooth GPS it works a treat in telling me where to go.

One thing that this phone didn’t do too well was pick up my personalisation stuff for Orange World. Orange World is a set of mobile type pages with stuff like ringtones and other rubbish stuff, but really usefull stuff like live train times. The one or two times I’ve been to South Queensferry to drop the bike off, the train times planner has been really useful. What I missed is what my previous SPV phones did, which was remember who I was and suggest favourite stations and journeys that I’d used before. I don’t travel by train that often, but being able to pick the same two or three stations is quite handy.

So with 20 minutes free time I did a bit of googling around, and found instructions on how to sort the settings to allow orange to detect my phone properly and know it was me. There is a thread on modaco that tells you what to do – Orange World Site on SPV M600. And my old favourites and cinema settings etc came back – I haven’t seen them for over a year since my old SPV. And new stuff like my account page, which tells me my minutes and megabytes left. Superb.
