The excellent 6310 lacks such pointless extras. It makes calls and does texting. Brilliant bit of kit.

This means it's practically impossible for millennials to communicate with you. Perfect. :y
I might have to dig one out then.

Trouble is, mine died in a microwave.

Or was that a 6210. Or a 2110.  I must be getting old, they all merge into one.

Hi, you get a 10% discount with LV if you are a member of CSMA!
Yeah, and that was the only reason I was a CSMA member...   ...but I cancelled it because Frizzell/LV have never been anywhere near the right ballpark figure for me, and the stupid magazine they used to send was always able to make my blood pressure exploded.

Saw a sign for Barnsley, just at the point the weather turned grim.  I always knew it was grim up north, but never knew it was that grim.

How does our resident, grumpy, layabout cope....
Grumpy? Me? You wanna look in the mirror, mate.  ;D
I go weak at the knees when I see an Adonis like image...

Watching with interest, as Terbs has exactly the same, intermittent problem. (1700 stored in engine eco, 500 and an unknown 730 stored in TCM).  Poiont to potentially the rear sensor on the transmission (or its wiring).

r the best phone ever made 6310i...   ...but it wont withstand fights with the wall...


Stop trying to use it as a sat-nav....

But its battery connections are only good if its not thrown about, and Mrs Opti has been known to throw his technology at him, even for such trivial things as saying her sister looked better....

well come to pull the loom that i require only to find its on the floor loom which is diffrent to mine has this has not got xenons and mine has, so it does not have the conctors for the headlamp level sensors will disopointed :(
Thats why everyone said to make a short loom piece.  The cabin looms on these vary, and are a pig to change.  But appreciate sometimes you have to discover this for yourself ;)

I have a 640 as a personal phone,
never had a problem with it, in fact when the wifes android started playing up. I got her a "used" 640 too.
Is it still running the (buggy) Windows 8, or the totally unreliable Windows Phone 10?

Mine is crap in every way. Awful touchscreen response, sluggish, needs frequent restarts, in between the weekly going flat restarts.

If I rated my aging gayPhone 6s as 7/10, the 640 would 2/10, extra 2 points for being able to do DA which neither crApple's paranoia or Goofys info collection system can do.

dunno, it works as a phone and camera, I get emythers on it, the tracker on the cars can be accessed, what more do I need?
dont do forums/farceboo on phones, btw it was 30 from a shop in town, put a wallet/case on it and a laminated screen thingie, total cost under 40.  did I mention I`m from Yorkshire?

edit a quick look on Eblag has them from a tenner, through 25 delivered reconditioned etc,

Mine spends most of its life just spinning those dots.  Fortunately we have access to Microsoft support, but as its a dead duck, its just a reboot (that solves it for a few days), and they are now saying they wont react to fixing those sort of faults.  MS are recommending we swap them out for iOS/Android devices as soon as possible.

When it does work, its too sluggish, and an awful touchscreen.

I felt it was better on WinPhone 8 (although the touchscreen was still inaccurate, making typing on it bad), but was forced to 10 for other reasons. But still not a patch on a current-ish iPhone or half decent Android device.

What was the actual code? Not getting engine rpm, or not getting the road speed signal?

The latter will likely cause speedo to drop to zero
