this phone have network from EURO ... How to change to Network at US and then i can't set mp3 for ringtones ... " Cannot use this file as DRM protection key is missing " But my friend have V800, too. He can used mp3 for ringtones ...
just reading these reviews made me want to post this. i was a devout nokia user until i got this phone. it's amazing. i use it to take files into work, mp3 player (didn't have to get an i-pod but did have to buy a bigger memory stick) and camera, both photo and video. i was hoping a phone like this would come out for ages and here it is. the volume levels are just right - was sick of buying mp3 player that player at too low a volume. it's a great phone! :)
Hi can anyone help. I have had the V800 for nearly 3 months and in that time have not been able to download music videos. On downloading the picture breaks up and there is no sound. Can anybody help I am getting desperate now.

My phone freezes. If I open the lid nothing happens for about 2 - 3 minutes. I only had the phone or three days now.
Also I can not get the phone to zoom in camera mode, works well in video mode
I had my phone for three days now, it seems to freeze up.
When I open the phone the screen remains black and no functions are working.
It turns on after about 2 - 3 minutes

Hey i was just woundering how do you get the DRM package to transfer mp3?
Even though this mobile has won many awards I am really disappointed and quite sorry that I wasted so much money for such a mobile. Unfortunately during this last year I noticed that the sound of the ringing tones is really low. Lately I also had a problem with the reception since I have a hardware fault in the ribbon. Anyone knows if there is a service centre in the UK? Also, if I manage to order the part I need from abroad that would be much better since I could get it fixed in my home country.
For people who have problems with the sound volume:
If there is any problem then the software is accountable.Go for an update
Oh,thre is an exception:If you use snap files(mmf)the ringing volume is always the same.Snap(mmf)files are made from yamaha only for Siemens phones.
When you are listening to a ringtone(midi,amr)you can increaze the volume using the keys on the left side of the phone.
To add MP3s to your storage card(not ringtones, just to listen to):
When your phone is connected, windows creates a removable disk drive. In there are folders (mp3 etc)
Copy the mp3s over. THEN DISCONNECT THE PHONE FROM YOUR COMPUTER. You will see them then.
my sound is set to level 8 but still it looks like to min. i thought it has a great sound,is there a way to max the volume?
For a phone that has apparently won awards I have to say since purchasing a pay as you go V800 I am not totally impressed. Message alert tones are rubbish and you cannot add any other tones. When trying to download music videos they download breaking up and either fail before completely downloaded or when completed do not save to phone. I would appreciate knowing if anybody else has experienced this problem if so what was done about it or even if you experienced no problems at all at downloading music videos.
how do i make the screen not fade away after doing nothing for awhile?
Nice to look at...the screen is nice and large. Now for the annoyances...the ringtone volume changes at will, the hinge unit is fragile, it doesn't hang up properly when closed, it chews it's battery, and just recently has taken to resetting itself at will...I've had it for 9 months and it's the most fragile phone I've had in 5 years.
The speaker is good but no as good as you say.I think that the speaker of my old k700 was a bit louder, but anyway,the speaker of v800 is good,so,no complains.
As for the rest of your report,I agree,This phone has everything and it's also very very posh
If you're willing to buy one of these Sony Ericsson V800 phones, this review might give you some ideas about what you will get.
I've been using the phone for the last 8 months and I'm totaly happy about the phone. One of the most positive points about the phone is its speakers volume. The speakers volume is adjustable between 1 and 8. I've been using it on vol. 3 and it's loud enough to hear even if you're in a busy road. I can set any MP3 or WMA as a ringtone or alarm. The momory sick has a nice position as you won't need to swich the phone off to take it out. The scren is amazing. The 1.3 megapixels camera makes the phone a real digital camera. Note that If you get the phone with contract like Vodafone, they've block MP3s so that you have the only option of using thier service to download and pay. The solution is simple. There is a software called "DRM packager" which allows you to use MP3s as ringtone and alarm. I've tried and it works perfect.
I've had Nokia 6610, 8210, 5210, 6600, Samsung E710, Sharp GX10, GX30, Sony Ericsson P900 and Samsung D500 so far and I've never felt so comfotable as I do with V800.
Thanks Sony Ericsson for this great design.
