    Hello,

    I'm trying to decide what smartphone to get as an upgrade for use on Orange and I'm split between the spv c600 and the spv m500 (or possibly the m600 when it's out). The only reason the m500 is still in the running is because the c600 doesn't have word or excel, it only has outlook!

    Is it possible to buy and install these after I buy the phone? I've been looking on the net for ages and can't find anything about it at all.

    Cheers!

    Just get the M500.Wicked phone.

    Its going to be hard to use word and excel with a non touch screen phone.

    Because I don't want to have that massive hunk of a thing in my pocket and it doesn't have a keypad!

    Also I won't be massively using word/excel but it would be handy. If I was it would just be to put in small comments.

    Also, do you mean: www.quickoffice.com

    I looked on there and I can't see that in the compatible devices list.

    hmmm. you realise when it's in your pocket it feels barely any bigger than a k750i?

    And that in practice the lack of physical keypad is no problem at all:

    It's considerably smaller than a lot of normal / smartphones that have been out (ie the old e200, a lot of the 3 phones etc) and the only smartphones notably smaller (and even then not much, ive just moved from a c500 to this) are the c500/550/600 :p
