The battery cover? Are you sure? Coz mine opens and closes smoothly. Make sure that when you close it, the cover lies flat on the unit from the end and slide upward, otherwise, you really wont be able to close and open it properly. It has no backlash and I even dropped my phone and it didnt disengage. It also is inconspicuous as it does not have any protruding latches/buttons.
To answer some stup*d question, of course it has a key lock. All new models have keypad lock. Give me one brand which doesnt.
The battery cover is not properly designed. It is impossible to get it off once the battery is inside. There is no proper grip. Other than that seems like a great phone.
Thanks for your observation. The reason why W810 and 3250 are being pitted against each other is they were both released almost at the same time (in the Philippines, anyway) and were both branded as music phones. The Nokia model you mentioned is not yet released so its pointless to compare them. Aside from the smartphone capability of the 3250, featurewise, everything else is almost the same. I have had a smartphone before (Ngage QD) and aside from the emulator, I found other apps quite useless. I respect your opinion that with the current price, you find the PhP3k difference to be a big factor in choosing the 3250. As for me, a better music player, better camera w/ light, practicality (you can put the phone in your pocket w/ the heaset connected, you can also text easily with it connected), looks and other unique features are well worth the 3k difference. It all boils down to individual preference. =)
Thanks for the replyz.
I too had problems related to sync. well am happy that my dvd ripz get converted into 3gp without any probz. some .dat and .mpg files i tried, got non-sync problem.
Hey mick from oz and everyone else. Can you please tell me how and where you upgraded your firmware for the sony ericsson w810i. Thanx so much,
Does anyone know Three pairs of rubber extensions, each one of different size are available in Standard Package of W810i?
Asking this question to someone who has update there firmware
If you download the firmware, what changes your phone?
Drop call (someone explain wat is this)
anything else that changes?
@ab...to install a new theme, very simple & straight forward. When d'loading a theme from the net, save it in a folder on your pc, then simply drag 'n' drop in your either card or phone 'theme' folder. After doing that just go in the MENU/ORGANIZER/THEME section and simply select one! I got plenty animated & cool ones from www.zedge.net all for free!
Hi, i have a w810 and i just installed the software and downloaded a theme on the net but have a problem installing it into my w810 via USB cable plaese help!!
@Tangoman...I experienced same problem (?) with handsfree mode. I had my FM radio on, headset on, auto answer on, with the difference I had SOUND ON...what happened was, while I was listening to the radio, it got cut off, off course, and as I didn't hear any ringtone, didn't realize I received a call!!! ;o)
@Auz...re-Xilisoft, I got both versions, personally I prefare the 2.1.50 and tried these settings for my W810i 3GP videos:
Video Codec: mpeg4
Video Size: 176 x 144
Bit Rate: 200 (for sharper frames)
Frame Rate: 15
Crop: Top 20, Bottom 20
Pan: Top 20, Bottom 20
Audio Codec: mpeg4aac
Bit Rate: 32
Sample Rate: 32000
A 16:9 Widescreen format worked 100% perfectly on this superb phone! The only problem I had whilst playing music videos on it, had no synchronization, so had to recode the orginal file before converting it to 3GP format. BTW both @ mpeg4 & h263 for 16:9 or 4:3 mode worked ok.
@Auz...back to being the master :p I'm only an ametuer unfortunately...the masters are the ones who invented this cute machine @ SE ;o)
@all...with USB cable on and at File Transfer mode (no phone features available) after I finish with transfering (drag 'n' drop) to the folders, and switching off the USB connection (safely) I get the 'White Screen' mode for a few of seconds. Does anybody get that mode? In the meantime I'm gonna try to check for a f/w update....cheerio!
Mann. The dropped calls are fixed with a firmware upgrade (i think so anyway).
I upgaded my f/w last week and haven't had a dropped call since. (except for once when I was in a bad reception area that always gave me problems on my old phone).
Before the upgrade, it would drop calls about 10% of the time, not too often, but often enough to be annoying.
Try the f/w upgrade and hopefully it will fix this issue. (as well as the flashing light issue) I'm very happy with the phone now.
not much different than w 800.,., but better design.,., got a veri cool look.,., if functions.., were better it will be great
My W810i always drop the call, I used Siemens S65 never had the problem, think before U buy, nice walkman & camera but it's useless if your call always drop, it's not a cellphone but a walkman.
