i have this phone for year and a half and i'm pretty satisfied with it, except calendar which is useless. but i have to say i've droped it a lots of times and i didn't notice any disfuncions. it looks great and after 2 years it's still very attractive. and generally, comparing price and options it's very good phone.
I like the Panasonic X200 mobile, But, not satisfied with the facilities available in this mobile. When compared to other mobiles like Nokia, Samsung and Sony Ericsson, this mobile does have a calander but, cant do anything with it except checking the dates. Other mobiles have calander along with an option of entering some important details by getting into the dates. Other things I am not satisfied is with the battery life, Number of Games available, and the MMS and GPRS Settings, which the service providers are not able to configure it for these facilities.
i love my phone i have had it for 9 months but last week i droped it on the ground and the screen went dark and now i cant c the screen properly unless i hold a light up to it! i am so annoyed i wish it was better quality coz i only have ever dropped it once!
I've had this phone for about a year now. I like the slim shape, excellent camera and comparitively low price but some problems with it are:
- no organiser. these are very useful for forgetful people like me lol
- very annoying battery charger. It's wobbly in phone socket and sometimes doesn't charge when plugged in
- low battery life. around two or three days max with not much usage
- weird antenna thingy. Wouldn't trust breaking it off though like suggested below
the panasonic x200 only came with one game when my freind had 3 when he got it brand new now i have to download some games and the games on vodafone live cost $7.00 each what a rip of!!!!!!!!!!11
when i got this phone it came with two sim packs one on the outside of the box and one in the inside did anyone else get two sim packs?
I've used this phone for about a year now. Overall it's fine. What I really like about it, is that it's very thin and slips in your front jeans pocket very nicely. Better than the thicker nokias and other phones I've used in that regard.
What I don't like about it? The overall fit and finish is not as good as it could be (not really bad, but not excellent, either). And the charger doesn't always fit securely in the charging port, so charging it can be a challenge. That's a really lame charging port design.
lop off the antenna, it looks better and you really don't need it. I've done this myself and it works fine!
I'm still thinking of buying this unit.i've had panasonic cellphones since it started in our country.I like panasonic mainly because its durability unit-wise.if you drop it it's still intact unlike some units/brands.no complains whatsoever with its usefulness..becuase it is useful.others may complain of its short battery life..but have you considered the life-span of your battery..maybe its been a year already sincec you've bought your unit...definitely you have to have it change already.Thanks Panasonic!
I had the same problem untill I discovered "the secret".All you have to do is long(1-2 seconds)press the central key.Then the question "Would you like to lock keypad?" appears and you have to press again to lock it.
Pleas somebody help me! It seem stupid, but i do not know how to lock the keybord. I have in menu icon "lock keybord" but thats only for one time, when i unlocked i must do it again, in menu ..... What i dont know?
Thanks a lot!
PLEASE tell me what's the data connection to pc softweare I have no idea how to handle this to transfer my photos to the pc.I have the usb cable, but I think I lost the drive when I bought a new pc.Plase help me!
Those with battery problems please let your phone entirely die of thirst first :) - this means let the charge go all the way down and wait like 15 minutes until the trying to power on the phone works no more... then with the phone OFF start charging until you see CHARGED or CHARGING DONE... you know what I mean.... then take out the battery to demagnetize, put it back in and you are supposed to have a full charge for 3-4 days... Also remember that Panasonic batteries are notoriously known as CRAPO-BATTERIES-REPLACE-ME-SOON!!! generic batteries do a better job and they only go for a few bucks anywhere... even on eBay...
when you try activating the camera the softare will try to open the len to the light first, then balance it, then show the preview and then will let you capture pictures or video... this happens in like 3 or 4 seconds but your phone is stopping in the step one since the hardware is not responding due to bad software... so it hangs!... the rest of the phone might work fine...
your camera is fine! - but the software is bad, I have seen this problem before due to PANASONIC mass-programming theor phones so at least one- to ten will go through what you are going through - PANASONIC response is send the phone to your nearest Panasonic-Matsushita store to get it fix (just re-flashed that is though)... it all depends where aou got it from and where in the world you are...
Since I use this Phone 1 year ago I had no problem. But now when I turned into camera mode, there's nothing but white on screen. anyone know what's wrong with my phone?
Quite disappointed with this phone. I could charge it all night [only takes 4hours to fully charge] and then text hardout for 4 hours and then it DIES! Really unhelpful especially when you're out on the road all day and it dies on you.. at first I thought it was my phone, didn't know it happened to everyone else.
Well,unfortunatelly I'm not really pleased with this one.I've found it too expensive compared to what it can do.The battery only lasts for 2 days (maximum!)and I don't think it's very handy to type a sms...I'm very disappointed and I regret that I've bought it.
Hmmm. On first glance you would think that this would be a good phone, but don't be fooled. This thing is a DOG. The battery life is very short (around 2 days and then drops off very rapidly after that) Secondly, the connecting unit to charge it dosn't fit properly and concequently it is difficult to charge, and so you will usually wind up "babysitting" it. Thirdly, the graphic user interface is quirky and is hard to navigate through. Finally, sound quality when calling is slightly better than a tin can with a string on it.
The good things about this phone are: that its cheap, its small, and it has a camera on it.
This in mind, you would be much better off with a Panasonic VS2 or even still better of with a Nokia.
