Just a heads up, wifi Does not work on that.

I installed Celestial Teapot. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=802893

Hmm, you're right, except I couldn't get wifi working on CT either.. Is there any custom firmware with working wifi?

Nope, it doesn't. Didn't see anything in the box about it either.

It's under the required $199.....so doesn't qualify. If you want the offer, buy the phone via Vodafone online....where it costs $199. You effectively pay $24 for the $200 credit.

Check out the conditions of the offer first though, from memory it can only be used for calls and not data and there is a time limit so it's not just an open $200 credit.

MS Exchange email on this phone is set up in the usual way: add a "Corporate" account in Accounts & Sync.

To actually read/write/use the Exchange account email, use the "360 EMail" app Vodafone has included.  I was looking for the "Email" app and couldn't find it and it isn't the Market...so tried "360 EMail"...and there was all my Exchange mail from work.

Done a quick search and couldn't see any vouchers? 

Try searching for 'vodafone credit'....there are plenty and dirt cheap too unfortunately.

I wasn't able to see the phone's bundled "PC Suite" because I had put an sdcard into the phone immediately. So when I connected the phone to the PC, I was only able to see the contents of the sdcard, not the phone's internal "udisk". 

I removed the sdcard and connected the phone to the PC and was then prompted to install the bundled PC Suite from the phone's internal "udisk". I sent an SMS from the PC via the tethered phone. That's nice. It also appears to support USB tether to the Internet using the phone as a 3G modem. The PC I tried it on was Windows Server 2008 R2 (64-bit)...so it was good to see the drivers and the SMS worked. I'll have to the Internet tether some time. 

But for anyone who buys this phone, connect it up the pc before you put an sdcard into it or you won't see the PC Suite. Also the file transfer will only be between the udisk and the PC, which may explain why the music player wasn't able to see the music as it would - typically - be looking for it on the sdcard.

I had a better/longer play with a VF 845 today, I'm still pretty new to touch screens but this was terrible, was almost impossible to write anything accurately, too small, I'm crossing it off my list now. Even the Galaxy 580 didn't seem that great. The HTC Trophy was the best I tried today, it was awesome.

A small stylus fixes the fat-finger vs small-screen problem, I've found. I have about 8cm of a plastic knitting needle I use for this. :-)   

There are also 3 different keyboard layouts...some better than others.  Swipe left and right to try them out.

I picked one up today, I quite like it but it seems I've broken it already :) I was trying to put a new firmware on it and had just cleared it (using AmonRA) but it wouldn't format the SD card correctly, telling me to do it through adb. I've rebooted it and the phone works fine, but I can't get the drivers to work with Windows anymore, and for some strange reason the CD drive that Windows finds when you plug the phone in without an SD card installed is empty. Could someone please do me a huge favour and zip up the drivers from that CD drive, I'm kind of stuck without it. Didn't take me long to break it! :)

Re: the skype thing, did you side load the cracked version?

There are a couple of similar apps in the Market which use the api aren't there?
