I bought my K790a new in 2008 (Indiana, USA). Mine works great! It's a little bulky compared to other phones on the market, but the camera works really well and having the removable card to develop the pictures on the spot is worth the extra width. I have found the phone quite easy to use and recommend it to anyone. I like the radio feature as well. I don't have an I-Pod or MP3, so I often use it while jogging. It's really nice too, that if my phone rings while I'm exercising I can answer it. If I were using an I-Pod, I wouldn't be able to carry my phone with me. I have found the phone to be fairly sturdy also. Of course, I try not to drop my phone, but on the few occasions that I have, it has shown no reprocussions - I can't say that about any of my past phones. The only thing I would like to improve upon concerning my phone is that the call volume could be a lot louder. It works well for most calls, but I currently have it set as high as it will go. Every once in awhile I'll get someone that speaks softly and there's nothing I can do to hear them better. All in all, this is a great phone! Anyone considering buying it should not be worried!
I am using the phone 4 3 years but the batteries and the keypad quality is the poorest i have ever seen.
But The net is amazing fae better than Nokia 5800XpressMusic.

Als... moreU face prob about ur battery. Lean to maintain battery well. Atleast once or twice in a week allow to charge down to minimum 5% and again charge it fully (100%). Dont leave mobile under charge for long even after it charged fully.
Now only hope to change ur battery.
Friends. I have read most of yours comments. I am using K790i for two years. Battery life is good, Camera good. I have a prob of often my mobile phone getting hang. Atleast once in a day.

There's a big difference between SE made in Lund, Sweden and SE made in China. When I bought this phone with 3 others in 2007, only I got Swedish make. Others got chinese made SE k790i. Phones used by others conked off within a year. It gave plenty of problems before they had to change it. Re-sale value for Swedish make is higher than the chinese one. My phone is still working fine. I have spent Rs.1000 last year. Thats it. No other problem. Sadly, SE and Nokia phones available in India are no longer Swedish or Finland make. Nokia made in Chennai and SE made in China... These handsets are not excellent. Gives plethora of problems!

Otherwise, give it to a reliable repair shop... Its giving prob cos sweat while speak over phone goes thru the keypad and damages the base of the pad over the years. It will cost you not more than 1.5k

It is one of the best phone i have ever used,
it has all the specifications i needed.
But,Now sfter 4 years of use, some problems are arising but, i am sure i am not going to throw this rather rectify all problems & again start using it for another 10 years.
Phone performance is good but the volume output in speaker mode while music play is poor.
Also Battery back-up is not so great. I talk for a maximum of 1 1/2 hr/day. Besides i switch off my phone during night..even then the charge of battery does not withstand even for 2 days..
Phone performance is good but the volume output in speaker mode during music play in poor.
Offcourse it is excellent phone but i don't why my baterry got swollen after 2 years of use only
