Am really enjoy your websit I would like to know more about sony cmdz7 phone and i want know the price .thanks.
Does anyone have the configuration settings for reading "Breathe" email off the phone?? Breathe seem to be unable to help. Can anyone out there help?
Hmmm, after spending two months with the z7, i can honestly say i'm more than a little underwhelmed. What seemed great on the outset, is actually a perfect example of style over substance. Whilst i can appluad Sony on its excellent design and 'dare to be different' approach with the ring tones and event sounds, the phone is far less than the sum of its parts. For instance the actual ring tones are embarassing. As one poster above mentions, there is actually no tone that sounds remotely like a standard ringer, so you have to put up with a phone that sounds like an ice cream van or a Gameboy Advance. The speaker also distorts very badly-nit picking sure-but it does get annoying. (for those wanting to know how to switch on the loudspeaker on a call, whilst in call, push back on the jog and scroll to loudspeaker-simple!).
Text message storage is also woefully inadequate in this day and age, though the T9 is excellent and the 'guess word' function is a lot more comprehensive than a Nokia.
Battery life caused some concern, as the ringer has to switched to at least 3 on the volume setting for you to be able to hear it, so as the phone asks for more power to get the speaker moving, the battery dies in the process! The vibrate only option is also annoying-the fact the vibrate is appalingly soft is bad enough, but not having ring and vibrate is silly-surely this isn't too much trouble Sony?
Call quality is good, and the signal hangs on very well in all but the most notorius areas.
Using the Orange network the phones WAP access is appalingly clunky and slow, a comparable Nokia will wipe the floor in connection speed and ease of use. microsoft mobile explorer? Yeah right....
I was really disappointed with the Sony Z7, i really did want to like it, and me and my friends had some fun with the recording function, but the novelty soon wears off. If you must have a super spanky small and lightweight phone, the Ericcson T68 is the one to have. And if you want something a little more office like, the Nokia 6310 is the business (literally and subjectively!).
Sony must try harder next time-i'm sure a good balance of design and ease of use with sensible features will come in time.
somebody please tell me how to use the hands free speaker. I'm begining to think that this function is a myth.
I just bought the new cmd-7 (used to operate cmd-z5). I very happy with my new unit except than I cannot find the T9 function. I tried everything but nothing worked out. Another thing that I really miss on the cmd-z7 is the recording function with the apply to possibility.
Still quite dissapointed with the slow progress in the mobile Sony... I would expect more features...
provided what I expected, once you (better if the jog-wheel does not apeal you, don't buy it) are used to the wheel it works perfectly, one thing, that was only once, did the audio
believe the listeners that I was speaking in a metal bucket, that is not hapened again, I love the Z7
The jog dial is very hard to use with the left hand (thumb), you need the right hand to hold on to the phone. But if you use right hand (first finger) it's a better grip. Menu GUI is very colourful, you can record your ringtone. HTML-based WAP is again graphically nice, but takes a little getting used to compared to other browsers.
nice phone, nice interface, but how do I use my hands free speaker phone ?
The down sides are :-
Phone needs to be on for alarm to work & no snooze button.
No telephone sounding ring tones
Record time not sufficient to record own ring tone.
Apart from that cool.
all but the best when the one at the other side hears nothing more than a metallic hollow sound/noise, does any one have the same experience?
Does anybody know whether is will be available in Greece? And also... what's the bad point with the ringtones?
I just couldnt wait and save up for an ericsson t68 could I.Now im stuck with this thing for a year on contract.Cant wait to unlock my final software 7110.U never miss the flexibilty of a nokia until you havent got it.I agree with some other reviews...the ring tones are crap and i just hate not having vibrate and ring at the same time.I dont even want to talk about the clunk,click and snap charger or the awkward handsfree connection.And the same goes for not being able to save, send or receive bookmarks and business cards and ringtones and numbers and the list goes on.Oh for wanting a smaller phone!
I'll just have to put up with the missing features and like its quirkiness.It is a beautiful looking and compact phone after all.
