w800 DOES play video in full screen mode. the thing is u cant FF or REW while video is in full screen mode(u CAN do that while in normal mode). another thing is that once u have activated fullscreen and u decide to go back to normal mode (for example,if u want to FF or REW) it atomatically starts to play from the beginning,it does not continue the video (which is a big problem when u are watching long videos). another thing i have a problem with is that when im watching a video (that i have converted, from .avi or .mpeg to .mp4 or .3gp, myself with one of the freeware or cracked coverters) in full screen, sometimes (very often) audio just stops playing and i can only see the video,but cant hear it! realy sucks when i want to watch music videos in full screen! anyway,this does not happen when i watch a video i have recorded with the built-in w800 camera (which is btw excelent!). all these problems might only be with my phone,but still,SE has much improvement to do with their video player. otherwise i am a ONE HAPPY CUSTOMER and all in all the phone is great. i have it since december and i love it and i would recommend it to ANYONE who is thinking of buying it! pc
in what country shoud it be made, in order to be a good phone, because, all k750i and w800 i've seen are made in china and i'm not confident about their quality.
This is the main problem with these handsts and sadly it is almost impossible to rectify, you have one of the phones that are corrupted.
You need to get a replacment but if your with orange frankly your buggered as there stance is that it makes calls and thats all they provide it for!
If your within 14 days your best cancelling the order and waiting for the new updated w810i.
Couple of questions mate and ill tell you what to do!
are you on contract or pay as you go?
How long have you had the phone?
Where did you get it?
Have you being sent a replacement?
Did it happen after you sync with a pc?
I have had my W800i for just over two weeks now, and it is great. I have not had one single problem with it.
The MP3 player will not play WMA files, but it is easy to download a WMA - MP3 converter off the net, which allows you to change and play your WMA files. With most of the file converters you can also change the size of the file (64K is CD quality) and this has let me put over 20 CD's onto the standard 512mb mem stick.
Camera is cool and flash can be used as a LED mini light.
On the all, I am happy with my phone. Glad I did not get the N70.
My phone isn't reading the memory stick. Any reason why? Sony Ericsson W800.
I got the memory stick out, and restarted the phone but the phone didn't read the memory stick. Please help
Hi to all W800 users
Does any one of you are a ImTOO MPEG Encoder
If so can you tell me a name and License code so I can use this software please.
Thank you I will apreciate your help
This phones menu and functionality are great but there are problems. The camera is average but it's a phone so what do you expect. The MP3 player is average but it's a phone so what do you expect. But the fault that is really annoying me is what I call the black screen of death! For no apparent reason the screen goes black, there is still power because the keys light up, and the only way to solve the problem is to remove the battery and restart the phone. I've had the latest software upgrade but didn't solve it. Has anyone else had this problem? Could you fix it?
be aware if u wanna buy ap set..some unscrupulous dealers use 2nd hand hp to sell at 1st hand price by reformating and changing the cover..do check the serial number by pressing *#06#
if its a original set, the serial number must be the same..im not sure with the ap set..ap set has price difference with waranty from different company..different company has different level of QC. Whether they replaced their parts with other stuff, its another question.
I have been using a Sony Ericsson W800i for a week now without any problem until today when it just froze and I had to restart again.A brilliant phone nonetheless,I hope it won't do the freezing thing again.
Hi I am currently using noKia 6630 and planning to buy a W800.What do u duys reccomend?Ur opinions will help me alot.Another thing DOES W800 plays video in full screen mode? PLZ REPLY
Whats the point of a software update tool when its a problem with the hardware anyway?? Leon is right with what he is saying many probs associated with this phone.. avoid!
The sony Ericcson website (well the Australian one anyways) offers you a software update tool so just download it and update your phone and you shouldn't have any issues with uploading music. Simple, easy explanation for everything. STOP WHINING!! Look for the answers. :)
But it unbranded. Seems like the Orange users are having troubles and a lot other people are happy with it. Def the best phone I've bought and i'm happy with it.
oh and Iguess whats why they released a more or less identical w810i to quickly quell the anger of dissatisfied w800i owners, telling people the only difference is edge in this release (Nope the software has also been upgraded)!
I have mine ordered as a replacement of Orange as I took my complaint to the top after finding the problems were in a large majority of handsets!
Hmmm I only sell mobile for a living so guess I dont know anything then :(
By all means go out and but this phone but a lot of people of dissapointed with the poor pc sync software, memory card bugs and errors, phamtom dissapearing files, corrupt memory card slot and then to be told of Orange that it makes calls and thats all they have to provide.
All the people slating me type w800i problems in google and watch in disbeleif as it shows exactly what im saying above, jeez bloomin fanboys do my nut in!
To conyo kid and Leon
Yes, there is a fake SE and it is made from china. Take a look at these pictures http://www.clubsonyericsson.co...nd-in-china/ . Cheers
which jungle did you came from? do you know how to use a mobile phone? i think you have such a gorilla hands. (95% of the users here agree with me hahahah.) so you better get yourself a nokia 5110 dude. i've read some forums about the w800i and there is no such thing that 75% of the users are not satisfied with this phone. i do have this phone for 4 mos now and i've never seen any single problem.
Disc2Phone is a program that is used to transfer songs from your computer to your phone. You may be thinking, "Wait, I can just drag and drop them in my audio file and I'm good to go." Yes and No, you can play your music that way but you're phone won't know what the artist or the album is because it uses the files the song is inside to find this information.
So, use Disc2Phone, it will do all the work for you.
Second, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! The w800, k750, d750, ALL can use a 2GB memory stick. I have had one in my phone for the last month, not problemo.
