I have tried O2 again and this time I got support to send me a replacement phone which should arrive Thursday. So the position is unclear i.e. will the 8110 GPS work without O2s support.

How should I guard my PIN?

Is there any reason why I should not place my PIN in a public place like an internet forum for instance? or should I keep it private?
Is there any mischief someone can do me, once they know my PIN?

one character.

Is the password length configurable?
