Just bought a K800i. In the past month, i've owned an N91, D900, TyTN and N95.. and I can tell u that the K800i is by far the strongest, and has the most stable software! AMAZING phone!
when i first got my k800 there was a software problem. the clock can't have big display. yesterday, i downloaded the software service update but the problem is that this time the software causes there to be no change in writing language during smses. the same happened on my k618. what should i do?
@nathan...how will i b able to buy credits? i don hav ne credit cards to buy those credits..iz there any alternative way to buy 'em? i prefer not to use da update software tool provided my SE caz az my internet connection z slow it cant download da whole software, probably..donno..bt i had a serious prob usin that tool...
hi! im planning to buy k800i in a few weeks, but my main concern is the joystick. i had k500i few years back and my problem with my phone was the joystick. is there some improvement on the joystick of SE phones?
about the firmware, etc. i always read here on the comments about the upgrade of software, about the firmware and stuff. am i required to do that every week? months? or in a regular basis? is the upgrade free online? and what happens if i don't upgrade my software? is this a big deal? can i download this at SE stores?
hey Ebony i wonderred how you can get trouble with the joystick hmm?
when it`s prottected form dust from first time in sony ericsson K800i.I buyed this phone november 2006 and at now i no have none trouble with the joystick as well memory stick i have no problem
@ebony: Yeah, like what the previous guy said. Sounds like you've been getting faulty K800i's. They shouldn't be like that. Try buying from a proper phone store that's not dodgy.
@everyone else whose phone freezes: Buy a credit with Wotan and flash it to a newer firmware. From memory, R1GB001 is pretty old. Mine is R1JG001, and I've had no problems :D
@potential buyers: Get it. That's all I can say. It's that great. Amazing. Fantastic. Superb. Unbelievable. Lol :)
if you experience some problem just go to the SE service center., they will repair your fone for free if it is under warranty., if your planning to buy thia phone buy in a authorized dealers
Don't buy it basically, I'm on my 2nd Sony Ericsson K800i and its joystick doesn't work right and it freezes all the time. The joystick keeps sending mesages whilst I'm still typing and other things. My memory card sometimes doesn't work. It keeps switching off all the time and the battery isn't fab. Apart from that, it's a good phone. My old one just stopped working...Don't buy it...honestly.
hey all i might not have the updated firmware but i dont have any troubles with it. the version is R1GB001061129
I bought this cellphone from CTI Miami, I highly recommend them. The phone is superb, very fast, screen is unbelievable, and very responsive, only thing is that camera cover may open in your pockets, so, be carefull
Hey, I got this SE k800i afew days ago but it did not come with a software CD. Can someone help me access the software online so that I can download it? Thx
I recently acquired a K800i and I love it! Its great and has great features. However, my biggest problem with it is that it freezes so much as compared to T610 which I held alittle more than 3 years. Does anyone experience the same problem and how could be the remedy?
What firmware do you have? It might be the firmware's problem. My friend has a K800i (Firmware R1GB001), and his calls list either freezes his phone, or doesn't have any numbers.
Your best bet is to update your firmware either by flashing or with SEUS.
Osaine. I know the problem to your phone. The problem is you need to stop flicking it with your finger, and you need to stop shaking it hard.
my camera sumtimes dont workan my phone shuts off at times wen it gets a hard shake or if i flick it with my finger. what could be the problem?
I've had this phone for awhile now and it's premo as, but I'm getting feed up with the Vodafone software/firmware. Does anyone know how to get this removed or changed back to the SE firmware?? Please flick me an email if you know anything. Cheers
I've got a 2GB card in mine, and it works briliantly!! never had any issues with the memory and files
