i own a k700i and would have to tell you it is great. The games are excellent (3d Java) which is much better than most phones for the same price. The ringtones sound excellent. The camera although not perfect works well( you have to remember it is not a camera it is a phone). The phone looks great and has good connectivity. The only problems i have is the horible camera sound and some slow browsing problems. Both which can be fixed by upgrading the firmware. This is an honest opinion with myself owning nokias in the past. SE is just one step ahead in technology( for a cheaper price i must add)
im going now 2 get this phone can anyone tell me a reason why I shouldnt get it and if I should compare it with anyother phone
I purchased the phone to replace my Nokia 6100. My requirements were simple. Small, lightweight, bar-phone style, speakerphone, and bluetooth. The Nokia met all of these except the bluetooth. I just wanted to get rid of the cord on the handsfree.
While the phone is a good basic design it does have bugs and I am once again looking at getting a new phone or even going back to my Nokia. Here is my experience:
Ordered the phone direct from SE. The package arrived and the box was empty - no kidding. SE did ship a replacement but we were clearly not off to a good start.
Also ordered a blue tooth headset from SE. The one delivered would not maintain a connection with the handset. When I ended a call the headset would intermittently completely disconnect from the K700i and the heandset would hang requiring me to remove the battery to restart the phone. I called SE and they sent a replacement headset. Same issue.
Bought a Motorola blue tooth headset. Much better but still occasionally has different bluetooth issues sometimes again requiring a restart of the phone. As a side note I have confirmed that I have the latest firmware for the phone.
This is my second SE purchase. The first, a T68i, I returned after 2 days since the phone felt cheap and the sensitivity was awful dropping calls where I never dropped before. That's when I bought the 6100.
Looks like I'm on the market again. Too bad because this phone wasn't cheap.
-great user interfaceand menu structure. Better than the nokia in my view (never thought I would say that)
-nice display quality
-buggy (acts like an old windows PC).
-bluetooth is unreliable
-a bit bulky because of the camera
-picture quality good only in ideal conditions
buddy i never wanted to start an argument with you. you were the one who dragged me into it. and you know what? i don't give a damn about nokia. i'm not anyone's fanboy and you were the one who dragged that too into the picture. all i know is that i've experienced 6 SE phones (not all of them owned by me - cos u know as the old saying goes fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me) starting from the T100 right upto this one and all of them were faulty as hell. 6 out of 6 isn't really what you could dismiss as a one off situation mate. it's a known fact that SE had immense problems with reception in their phones when they first introduced internal antennas and many issues like that exist...well hopefully they'll improve on that like i said quickly. cos in the end when you ditch funcionality and performance in favour of impression and appearance it really won't win the day. that's the simple reason why nokia sells so many of their products although their phones are boring as you refer to 'em.
well anyway lets just let it go. i seriously have better things to do too mate. hope you enjoyed these lil confrontations too,as much as i did.. :D
K700 is really great, I love it! MP3 the best - unlike NOKIA phones... shit! distorted sounds...
Great pictures nice feature... K700 the best
I've just tried MOBILedit! what you ask for. I moved my 175 contacts from an old phone to my new one, fast, simple, reliable.
I just switched to K700 from an older model. It works fine, great screen, functions. Any idea how to transfer my 477 contact items without having to type all?
Man what does nokia give that other manufactoreres don't give ??
Does nokia use a technology from other dimension ??
Same stuff, same features, & on bar quality.
What's the miracle that nokia do in replacing the cover and giving the same features, or maybe replacing one feature with another ??
SE is on bar with nokia in the features, yet looks better to me, and again few more animations and colors are welcomed as long as no feature is missing.
As for the bugs it's TOTALLY UNFAIR to state that every single product from a manufactorer will be full of bugs before testing it yourself. I DIDN'T ENCOUNTER ANY BUG IN MY K700i, and I didn't hear that SE is always RENOWNED for bugs. Just be fair to yourself man. I told you before that having a bug or even a couple of them is NOT the basis.
I'm not gonna answer any of your posts again. Man just get out of my head my mobile gives me what I need. If you want a business phone then your place isn't here as k700 isn't targeted to that category of mobiles, go to the p910 forum.
As for calling me "myopic, naive and stiff necked myridons of SE" then tell me what does nokia gives other than AN OLD REPUTAION to even look at her products ??
Remember I'm neither a business man nor a child so don't tell me they give EDGE or pop port or n-gage as I'm not in that hurry to need EDGE and SE's accessories just work fine with its port & by the way if I wanted to play games I go psp & if I wanted a better shots I go cybershot.
Final thing to say here, I like my k700i it has all my priorities, needs, and interests so you keep nasty nokia for yourself. Our door man has a 6600 and you know what it's always good to be unique than the rest of the people.
i like this phone but i also like nokia 3220 n 3200..can any1 telll me which is better?
i dont own the k700. i just play with my friends phone. ive tried transferring wav files to it. its been a hit and miss affair. i create my own wav clips. some wav files will play well. some wont, even when the same settings are used. so experimenting (and hoping) is the key
why not convert your wav files to mp3. on the average, you would save about 90% of space. you can search around the net if youd like to know more about conversion. or you can try dbpoweramp.com
to transfer files from your pc, as s has said, you must have a bluetooth dongle (recommended), infrared, data cable or a docking station (if you own a p series phone, then you have this)
to send/receieve files to and from phone, u need either bluetooth dongle, IR dongle, or usb cable
Hi guys,i just wanted to tell about K700's battery time well i use a lot and six months back i bought it and its battery is poor it only lasts for about two days.bye
I want to buy a SE K700 or a Nokia 6230. Could anyone tell me which is better ?
Do you need a cable to transfer MP3's from a Mac to my K700i or can you do it via bluetooth? If it's possible to transfer MP3's via bluetooth? If so, what's the best way possible? Thanks....
seems u know a lot bout the k700i.
I own a k700i too and i would like to learn a few things from you. Pls how can i make my k700i play wav. files and since it doesnt have a usb port, how do i download or send things from my pc to it?
i also have other questions to ask but pls someone should help me answer these ones first.
The phone is very cool and i have bene using it for 2mths now.It has fallen from me lots of times but it's still in perfect condition and the midi tones sound so much better compared to other phones. The only thing i dont like about it is that the price is going down so fast and soon my other friends will be able to afford it...lol
your enquiry abt the 6310i pretty much shows all you know abt mobile phones and your perception of 'em. look at the date it was released and the 'useful' features that phone has from a business person's perspective...sure it's got no colour display and animated wallpapers..simply cos it was intended for 'professional' use and it targeted a 'mature' market...in these regards it delivers better than any phone ever...you only have to read some user reviews.
however what you have said is not very clear as your english isn't the best i've come across. but anyway let me say that sure, the T610 and K700 were successors. but as for them being a success...:D that's a different story altogether!
you call the T610 a success...i laugh from both ends. the bug list of the T610 is longer than the great wall of china. it was attractive at the time of release and included many 'features' but the more sensible users quickly realized how much of a disaster it was...
dear mate, SE was always renowned for these nasty bugs... I just hope they would improve a helluva lot and quick too at that..
solely for the sake of rather myopic, naive and stiff necked myridons of SE like you...
So ... Before I had Nokia 6600 and now I have SE K700 and if I were you I'd buy the Nokia because I think that it is the better one.
But now I use Samsug D-500 and it's better than the Nokia so if you have more money you should definetely buy it.
I think that for now that's the perfect phone but as I read here soon are coming up Samsung i300 and Samsung p-860 so ... if you have time and money you should wait :))))
(Wow I wrote whole letter :)) )
Hi people,I'm actually thinking of buying either the Sony Ericsson K700i or the Nokia 6600. Is there anyone out here who's used both phones before and can give me some recommendation?
im buying the w800 (or k750) but i posted here since the k700 (which i dont own) has pretty similar "basics" and that people on this page are likely those who own the phone that has been released and not just guessing. i just asked the question because my winxp isnt what you would call legal :) and i wanted to be sure if the sp1 requirement is "really required" because the w800 would likely require that as well. so wait for the w800 with a mature fw i will
