    Am i able to change the inbuilt dictionary as i've added words that shouldn't have and now it is starting to choose them.

    I have a hotmail programme and a gmail one. Am i able to amalgamate them into one programme. They also do not seem to get email unless i manually refresh. I have gone into settings but it seems to be ok in there regadring when and how often i want it updated.

    Battery seems to be a real stinker, i'm getting roughly 7-8 hours before it's telling me to recharge. No live scenes, wifi off anything i'm missing?

    I'm on 3 how do i check to see if i can update to 2.2?

    Thanks Neil

    My old phone, an E71 had an excellent email programme. It seemed to be instant regarding incoming mail plus i had both the gmail and hotmail accounts synced up to it. Why does my desire not have the email programme as good or is it something i have done?

    Cannot comment about hotmail accounts but my gmail account syncs without any dramas whatsoever. I do not use the google calendar. I do all contact changes in gmail on the pc and then they sync to the Desire without problem. Mail comes through almost instantly and I can delete at either end. I have sent a copy of my Outlook POP mail to gmail so I can get that as well on the Desire.
    I sync my calendar from Outlook 2007 doing all the changes on the pc and connecting the phone to the pc with the usb - never a problem.
