trisha, 01 Jul 2010hi there... i'm from the philippines also but i bought my aino in abu dhabi last february.I tr... morehi trisha., i just got my aino a week ago, sad to say, the unit they gave me (SMART TELECOMS) is a u10a, so, im also stuck in the 71 firmware, i cant update it, so, there is really no chance of updating our phone. unless we debrand it, i cant do that into my unit, it'll void my warranty, so, but as for you, yu can always do that anytime.. yours is noy operator locked.. just google it, how to debrand it
i ve had this phone for 6 months now, and its not as good as i expected. 1. battery performance is low 2. touch screen freezes 3. once you take the sim card out and put it back the date reverts back to jan 1st 2000. Conclusion is disappointment.

Its posted on the SE website that the new software has bubbletown 2 and two new SE themes but my software version han none of these. Im so confused. Can You Help Me with this?

Also, i was "googling" and the mw600 has a OLED screen that shows info from the music that you are listening, and the mh100 just has some LED's to light up while playing music. Those last you can't buy them to SE, but the other one yes. And i was making confusion between Wi-Fi and Hi-Fi. The mw600 has Hi-Fi sound (High Fidelity Sound).
Hey guys HI, I m a Happy user of THis phone i bought this handset in oct. 2009. in starting whenever i keep it in my pocket its touch always hang and i had to removed battery every time . also it was very slow as compare to N85 or other Nokia phones . But i can't describe the movement when my friends feel jealous to see this phone on my hands. It look pretty cool all functions r cool, the main attraction of AIno is its Handsfree lightning style bloody awesome . then i have to update software and after updating it never hang till today , even yesterday i updated this phone and got 1 new game and some themes . Now its not working slowly like before . and its Camera wowwwwwwwwwwwww also Sound in Handsfree is good . the Bad is only that it has only one speaker which has very low sound output . As in sonyericsson mention dat it has 2 speakers LOL Lier .
I've been reading around about Opera Mini 5. When used in conjunction with the Aino... does this make it a full touch screen phone? or it's just in web browsing?
Phillip, 29 Jun 2010Ok Michael I found the way to update it on the website. But maybe you could help me with othe... moreMH-100 & the MW600 are the same product...when SE released the headset without the Aino they called it MW600 & when they put it with the AIno it becomes MH-100 just 2 make them a separate them 2 be able 2 sell them as a separate product ...i don't how u bought the phone without the dock & the headset...was that along time ago or something? i know it comes with these accessories so u should ask the shop about them...here in egypt ...since the phone has arrived here. it comes with the headset & the desk charger.
Phillip, 29 Jun 2010Michael I will buy this week my AINO. I don't know if it comes with the last update.

Krishna, 29 Jun 2010U have bought SE aino ClassicWell too bad, i will buy it after tomorrow, and it comes w/o the dock charging and bt/wi-fi headphones =/
I was doing a search and i find out that AINO comes with the Bluetooth headphones but you can buy the Wi-Fi ones. But I'm also looking for the dock charging.
I think the phone is good in general. The slick design makes the phone very attractive and solid when you're using it. Free bluetooth headset connector is a nice free gift, but make sure you don't lose it though, cause it might be hard to find a replacement. Furthermore, the entertainment touch screen feature is pretty 'cool', since you can control your camera, video and music at a touch of a button, however sometimes the program response is slow making the touchscreen feature annoying at times. Another heads up, I think SE could've improved its music player a lot better. AI know this is not the W-Series, but at least it should be as close as Nokia N85, in terms of features such as ease of creating playlists and so on.
Also, it's quite slow compared to my Nokia, to be honest I have no idea why. One other disadvantage is that you can not use your phone if you don't recharge it the night before you use it. The battery life is a lot worse compared to other phones.
I would have given this phone a 9/10 if only the phone is faster and has longer battery life. But for now, it deserves no more than 7/10, hopefully SE can come up with a better upgrade/update in the near future.
