    Looking at upgrading my V3 to either a SPV M5000 , SPV M2000 or a SPV M1500.
    I have been told a m1500 is faster than a M2000 so why the price difference? Also again been told that a SPV 1500 runs mobile windows 2005 and the others dont.

    Bit confused at the mo so any help would be great.

    Many thanks.


    EDIT Sorry running on Orange at the mo and quite happy with them, so really dont want to change providers

    The M2000 is older, runs the previous version of windows mobile and is probably the last one I'd look at. Due to the slide out keypad etc it's more expensive to manufacturer than the M1500, hence the increased cost.

    The M1500 is pretty good, as is the M5000 (albeit huge). The big difference is that the 5000 has 3g access and the folding screen/keyboard, whereas the M1500 doesn't.

    Both run the Windows mobile 5 pocket PC version, and you're unlikely to be disappointed with either of them.

    If you can cope with the size, get the M5000 :) If the M5000 is too big (or too expensive) then get the M1500.

    The m600 is considerably smaller than the above phones. It all depends on what you want to use this phone for really.

    I think that this phone is the same as the MDA Compact II which is the same as :

    Actually it might not be the same as the compact II as it doesn't seem to have wifi on it.

    How did you get it m8? A business contract? Or will they let me upgrade to it from a normal contract (ie non business)?

    Does the m600 have a touchscreen? If so does it come with a stylus to use?

    It's available for direct upgrade for all customers, price depends on how much you spend though.

    Yes and yes :)

    Yeah i am considering leaving orange as they dont seem to appreciate long term customers at all. Do other providers have better offers for people who stay with them over the years?
