I've used the SE Elm for the past 1,5 years. The phone has turned out to be a bit of a let down. The operating system is slow! Especially when opening/closing simple apps like Gmail. There is a built in widget thing going on that you can't delete, also makes the phone crawl. It has wi-fi, but often it can't connect. 3G connection also often fails. Music player is also terrible to work with (you can't just play a folder, wtf!) and very slow. Same goes for image viewer. To close it, battery life is way too short for a dumbphone.
I enjoyed the SE W800 way more. It lived up to it's purpose. Elm fails in too many ways. I now have a Xperia Ray for the same money the Elm cost me. Way better.
camera colors are weird at night.. kinda dark. my old w595 cam is better at night.

1) Buy USB cable
2) Set your phone mode to USB Storage and plug cable to your phone
3) Your phone will enter mass storage mode
4) Defrag your phone using Disk Defragmenter (on Windows 7, XP)
5) Disconnect and wait for phone restart.
One of the reasons, Elm doesn't have any Defrag software (never found it so far). So you'll have to defrag manually. Delete data only is useless, at least your phone must defrag every 6 months. Also if necessary format your micro SD card because all Google Map cache is store on it.

I am very happy with this SE Elm...except the camera function, although picture quality is superb but digital zoom is not available in MP mode. If u have nice headphone sound quality is superb, GPS is up to the mark..even google map works on internal GPS if u have data plan. Battery last 3 days (i have to attend call 1/1.5 hour daily)this phone full fill my all requirement, previous i own K790i, it serve me 5 consecutive years. I never try any other brand than Sony Ericsson, is the best for me, but i don't like touch, slider and flip, so i hope in future Sony will relaunch nice bar phone with keypad like Elm.
I've had my Elm for about 1,5 years now, but it has started to become awfully slow! It takes like 10 sec to open my inbox and 5 sec to unlock it!
I only have a few songs and fotos on it, and I regularly delete my old messages.
When I brought it there was no delay and it worked perfectly.
Have anyone experienced the same thing?
hi guys!my mobile phone gets swtiched off by itself.do u know wat is wrong with my mob?
This is very good phone. Camera quality is awesome. Speaker volume is little bit bad. Battery backup is also very good. Overall it is very good phone to recommend.
