i've been using this phone for nearly 3 yrs now. and everything's great. never have any problem at all. i accidentaly dropped it many times, and nothing went wrong.
the features are good, the bad thing is no radio & no memory expansion. but hey, turns out that i can live without that :D

Hi Guys.. I used to won this phone and it was very good at the time..Even now it would be good for someone who just wants and everyday use phone with the added feature of a half decent camera..display is ok and pistures taken look good on the phone..memory is ok but the phone does not support removable memory.. Joy stick on this phone does tend to get worn and user may have problems with it... Mine was very tough..and is the only one of my many phones that didnt break(and it went through alot), tough phone..ended up giving it to my grandma..she loves it..all round good phone =)

i love this phone i bought it for 2-3 becauase it was faulty it wouldnt charge i did open the phone and resolder the contacts on the charge socket it and it now works great,yes i had the joystick problem but all its down to is dust for those technically minded open the phone find the joystick control and spray it with switch cleaner (get this from any electronics shop) once i did this joystick worked perfectly
a brilliant phone in my opinion one feature i found excellent is when youve installed a game and the screen isnt right you can change the size of the screen for that particular game which makes it able to use games that werent meant for the phone

I pressed down the Joystick for 2 mins and it was working only for some time.Again the Joystick problem is there and frustrating with the joy stick joystick functionality.

If i get a big message cant go down to read all the message.Worst design from Sony.

I have been using this mobile for the past two years. I havenot seen a mobile equivalent to this here in our country. No problem with this set. People have complained of its joy stick. Its easy. Unlock its casing. Yes. And clean it.

I have this phone for the last one year. Its got great sound and display is also good. Camera quality is good. But only thing that i hate in this phone is the joystick. Last few months it behaving in a strange way. Does not work in a perticular direction. I would say, DON'T GO FOR THIS PHONE. ITS A GOOD PHONE FOR THE FIRST FEW MONTHS... NOT AT ALL A GOOD PHONE...

I had this fone for just over a year and the only problem i had was the joystick stopped working, and also it is a very durable fone with great features.
mine is now dead, the lcd cracked so now i am using a nokia 6030.
6030 - also a great phone, for it price.

Well, I must have a complete dud, because I have had so many problems with this phone. Even basic functions such as being able to recognise incoming messages/calls from people whose details are in the address book seem beyond this phone. In the address book where it is supposed to have the Groups function where you can move your contacts into different groups, it moves the wrong numbers!!! It often crashes when I receive a phone call. The ear piece has very poor sound quality so it can be very difficult to understand the person at the other end. The jostick will often decide not to work in one direction. I could go on and on.... This is not a good phone.

I look after my phone and it looks in very good condition, despite the frequent urges I have to throw it against a wall, of which it would certainly not survive, being quite a fragile design. These faults I have explained are not due to it being roughly treated.

But like I said, maybe I'm just the unlucky one who got the dud.

Good luck!!!
