Im using this phone and it has very bright screen,nice camera.Its headphones sounds good.the Bass elements are much better than any expensive speakers like Logitech,Altec lansing.But I'm gettng a problem that wen I recieve a ringtone message from nokia I cann't use it.
BTW, What iz up with ma fellow lezbaneze Mario, y so m2ayyar, ya3ni me ive been lurkin for months now goin back n forth from nokia to SE to Moto just to decide on which to buy for now and later...so my fuses are all burnt from all zis enno V3x turned out to be ok but all plastic and no innovation, nokia keep throwing same expensive 24k gold seemingly phones at us and SE keep replicating the same Walkman® features in ten diff. series W800 1st then W550 now w900 but size keeps goin back to those walkie talkie sizes of mid 1990's phones dont u think?!...and yes ma fihon ya3rfo enno haydol msabbet hehehe can u spell E-D-B-TZ?:P
WOW! so judging by the bus driver's helpful experience, this fone CAN handle flash memory above 1Gb and even 2Gb right?! Also does this record/play videos as much as there is free space in memory or is there a limit?
PS: Also the free W800 from Tmobike is definately a "jump for it" deal in North America since here in Canada aka Monopolyland ppl still dream of V3's for 99$ with 3yr contracts (Rogers,Fido) and other junky LG,Sanyo fones(Telus,Bell)& 2003-2004 models still being sold by these "Oyoura" cies...that just insults my intellect...
Had W800i 4weeks now.
Have had same disc to phone (d2p) problems as everyone!
But now have sixty+ albums on phone.
1000+ songs on "Sony 2gb high speed memory card" (£96 all in off ebay, new!) have 950mb left, songs transferred at 32kbps, sounds pretty good.
Sorted out d2p by doing one album at a time, then closing d2p and safely removing hardware (phone) checking album on card and then repeating process, for each album.
Once or three times album not fully there and had to put on again, but quicker 2nd time around because album already decoded to d2p.
Have several albums by same artists and shuffle works fine.
However phone takes ages 3-4 minutes to start up "tracks" if you go through walkman menu, so use play/pause button if you have loads of songs. It seems to remember and starts straight away. (I have radio on a shortcut).
I'm a bus driver so have music or radio going all day with phone on, at end of day, have about 20% battery left. This includes about 30mins of calls and several texts. (8hr day).
Unless you live on a park bench, there should be no problem to charge phone nightly.
Also put "Sound recording" on joystick shortcut it works like a dream! Starts recording with one pull down of joystick and saves if you press save or deletes if you use back button! Bring on the police brutality! (Only joking)
I am going to get the phone on Xmas and i am so excited!!!! And think that i am onlu 15 years old!
tom starkey!, YOU ARE THE MAN BUDDY! YES some IDIOTS made us really scared to get this phone because of its battery life but as you said, it has a long playing life to go and yeah i trust what you said about it, FOR THE W800i lol, PACE!
i have a problem here. when i activate the camera function. i have set the location where the pics taken will be automatically save to my memory stick. im very sure that i set it into my memory stick. but i wonder why each time when new pic taken, it is still automatically save under my phone memory??? why is that so??
pls help me on my setting
Listen...I've made the following deal with T-mobile. FREE SE W800 but without the mem.stick. instead they are willing to give me a 2 months discount. Good deal or not.
I have this phone for 1 month now. And i have been in this board since. Ive notice that not all the w800 are the same.
-i can type as much letters that i need to find a contact. not just 1 letter and then scroll down. its a firmware difference that's causing this.
for the correct info about the right/updated firmware info.
-battery life, IMO, is great on this phone. just remember, turn off ur phone and use the "walkman" mode if ur gonna watch movies. atleast ur not gonna get interrupted when watching ;)
-the only major problem that i have right now are:
1) since i have tMobile, i can't access tzones because this phone is not supported by the tzones (atleast not yet)
2) mine has shutter noise. i have to be on a call while taking pic so the shutter sound is silent.
3) I have a cubicle at work near an outlet so i have all day to charge my phone. the problem is i want to charge my phone AND use my earphones at simultaneously
4) i just got 1 GB of memory and that is not enough for me. now, i use the OEM 512 MB for movies and a 1GB for music and pix. i might do some rearrangments (1GB for Music and movies. 512MB for pix)
These are minor problems that i can overlook. all the features of the phone itself outweighs all the cons for this pohone. I really am glad that i chose this phone and have no regrets in buying this.
As far as price. the cheapest ive seen is $430 (more or less) from BUY.com free shipping too. u might have to wait cuz this phone sells out quick. They have the cheapest mem card also.
PS: im from the philippines also. but i live in florida US now
Also for Karishma,
I got mine in HongKong for AUD $ 650.00, you can work this out in your currence, saved me a good $300.00 :)
umm adder i was talking bout battery life ^o)
but whilst on subject yes i can only get 1 letter in menu... meh get a life scrolling for 2 secs wont kill you!
man! how come mine doesn't have that feature.. bummer.. maybe that's a firmware difference.. im in the philippines..
i don't know my firmware i didn't do anything with my phone u just scroll down the joystick and then press the letters u want and it works, at least on my phone works
can tap a whole load of letters in contacts to find a person. dunno y casper cant
ive had this phone for about 2 weeks now and absoulutley love it,great camera mp3's sound great to afterall we are talking about the people who invented music on the move with the walkman,ahich does this phone justice,also batery life is 15 and a half hours with continuous playin with a 10 min phone call every 10 min as proved on a british tv program beating the n series by nearly 5 hours.Dont listen to all thes people who blab on about all these things there just jealous because sony ericsson are the best phone makers by far
what is your firmware? how come you can type 2 letters or more when you're searching in contacts? did you do somethiing to your fone? could you teach me how you did it? thanks man..
@ james tan in the contact list U can type more than 3 letters to find the name, on my w800 i can type the whole name i want to search so keep trying
ive been reading up abt this phone on this website and im really interested in getting one... it looks sexy and its sounds great having a mp3 player in the phone itself. ive found out it cost abt rm1800 (USD450) in malaysia.. any1 knows of any better price? i'd be more into listening to my fav mp3s with the phone than watching mpegs, can any1 advice how long the battery will last if the phone is on the same time im listening to the mp3s?
after having this phone for a week i love it, but.
Major problem: BATTERY LIFE, it sux really sux i watched a 1 1/2 hour movie and battery was dead... with a 2 sec warning, dead :( couldnt even turn back on to check for messages...
oh well i am just hoinh to have to buy another battery for those long road trips :D
Just my 2c
