    Morning,

    Orange (UK) finally have the 9500 on their site as
    "coming soon". It is at:
    http://shop.orange.co.uk/shop/show/handset/nokia_9500/

    On the features page:
    http://shop.orange.co.uk/shop/show/h..._9500/features
    they list predictive text input, vibrating alert and
    voice activated dialling as features, whereas I
    thought the 9500 had none of these three.

    Can anyone with a 9500 confirm or deny this?
    Is it possible that Orange have a later version of
    the phone from Nokia?

    Thanks in advance,
    Al Reynolds

    My SIM free one doesn't have any of these. Voice dialling and predictive
    text might have been added to a later version of the software. Vibrating
    alert is a bit more difficult though - maybe they've found some unused
    space in the case. No other communicator has had vibrating alert AFAIK.

    I believe whatever marketing person wrote that copy was smoking crack at
    the time...

    I emailed Orange Customer Services:

    And they've just replied:

    This maybe a bit late but my Orange 9500 has none of the features, infact it
    has less Orange customisation than any other phone I have got from them.
