I just got this phone and got rid of my w900i. This phone would be great but I drop mad calls all day long. GRRRRR. Never dropper any on w900i.
James, great answers dude. Nice to see some answers on the site instead of just the same old questions over and over again. Cheers.
Also, Orange (UK) has moved the phone from 'coming soon' to 'buy'. Guess where my fingers are tapping to next...
Any usb card reader will work. Card readers are all the same. Its the memory stick itself that determines how fast it reads / writes..
hey james, what usb card reader do you suggest to i purchase that would be best to suit my Mac Itune Music FIles? thanks!
IT s a quadband phone finaly in america ! w810 or k790 ??
can you do other things while listening to music or it has to stay in the media player??
,i like to use my phones menu ,contacts .. while music is playing
The new W810 seems to be irresistable in it's design and features, anyone would get thrilled to get one of this and Im a person who has waited a long to get this black irresistable gadget.But I dont agree with their marketing as this is just the W800 phone with a Blck case with 2 GB upgradeable memory and additional MPEG 4 player.People concerned with money have no other way rather than wait.
This phone has an amazing screen, ezpecially when compaired to the w800. I thought they would be the same, bu its way better.
I finally figured out how to get my MP4 video onto the memory stick so that the phone will recognize it. However, when i play it back, the video has little jumpy skips to it. Nothing major to where it kills the movie, but more like jump glitches every second or so. The audio seems to remain in sync with the video which is good.
Do your mp4's skip..??
FYI my settings for the MP4 are as follows:
Resolution 176 x 120
Video Framerate is 29.97 fps
Audio Bitrate is 128 kbps
Not sure if that is japanese to you, but if its familair and u can spot why my mp4's are skipping, let me know..
James: can you tell me which countries (USA, UK, or Canada, or Australia, etc) have the shutter mute option? When I update my firmware, I want to use one of those countries...
I actually found out that the clock comes up when you click any of the side buttons after the phone is in the sleep mode, however it only stays on for a second and disappears.
Also I am pretty disappointed that they still don't allow repeating events in the calendar , that has to be the most basic functionality , why they would not implment such a small yet poweful feature is completely beyond me, it is as if they purposely don't let all these small but important features coexist together.
Anyway I wonder if the new firmware update will adress that issue as well.
hey ya sorry bout that but its true
anyway is there any chance this phones as loud as w600??
because i want a really loud phone so when im at the mall and my phone ring everyone will be like wtf thats loud like boom boom boom
i have a w600 but it doesnt have a memory card and i need to put more songs and it wouldnt hurt to have a better camera
i dislike you european ppl sooo much, you get all the nice phones!
and across the pond we get your leftovers!
yes i added the videos to the folder in the directory: memorystick\mssemc\mediafiles\video and am able to view my videos thru the walkman player or file manager.
yes there are many different options to load ur files to ur memory stick; by using a usb card reader (the best idea so you could connect it to any computer with a usb port), via bluetooth, or the usb dongle that came with the phone.
yes the standby clock seems to be glitched on this firmware with the phone, i called sony and they said this should be fixed when an update comes out.
a nice thing is that you can use the remote update service on the phone itself and update thru the phone without a need for a computer or that tricky sony update service online.
i read somewhere that this phone will be out for cingular in the 3rd quarter, but is widely available sim free online.
i have not gotten any dropped calls like i had with my previous phone, try calling sony ericsson about it, and have them replace it if it is defective, it comes with a 1 year warranty.
to joshy d,
the difference is the look, the applications button along with the walkman button, edge support, and a replacement of the joystick with a control pad (which should last longer),
all minor differences
yes you can hear the other person clearly, and they can hear you even clearer, this phone is great with sound quality, with or without the headset, just make sure ur buddy on the other line is speaking clearly in the first place.
and the only options to set a lock code is for ur sim card, phone lock at startup, or code memos (personal notes with a lock code), then there's the keypad lock that unlocks by pressing the * and right select key.
to more sense than more sense,
this phone does play mpeg4, and various videos formats, but it just depends on the frequency and resolution. ive been enjoying music videos in mpeg4 format on this phone..
hopefully the standby clock gets fixed soon.
and in the contact's infos, you have the option to set 4 numbers PER contact; mobile, home, work, and other, as well as email and web address, picture ringtone and voice command, work and home address,info and birthdy.
to winston, you can set an mp3 as a ringtone by either finding the mp3 in file manager and pressing MORE, USE AS, RINGTONE; or selecting a contact in ur list and pressing MORE, EDIT CONTACT, go to the picture/ringtone tab (middle 3rd out of 5 tabs) and select add ringtone.
ur mp3s must be in the memory stick/mp3 or
memorystick\mssemc\mediafiles\audio folder directories
The result of Sony Ericsson is always great towards me coz if u want to do good u have to be good
convert the media files to 3GP format with the converter name SUPER(c) ok so search SUPER that convertor really shock me when i use it first time coz the video playback is just the like the DVD come on TV. so search the site and have a Nice DAy.
Hey guys, is it possible to do file tansfers with this phone on a powerbook G4? I really wanna get this phone but i wanna make sure that i can get my files over from my itunes.
Can anyone tell me how to make a songs from the walkman player that is saved on your memory stick be a ringtone? They have the preset ringtones.
I just got this phone a few days ago and I noticed that the sleep mode clock which also showed if you had a missed call does not come up any longer. The screen just goes pitch black. The 750 had this feature, can this be setup or has it been completely removed?
WOW what a wicked phone!! I had a few probs getting this phone with 02 online as an upgrade, they kept telling me that it's not released yet, call back, and when i did call back, they said the same thing again. I walked into an 02 store on Sat just to see if they had it in and they did, i asked for the phone number for 02 online upgrade so i could call them straight away, but the store offered to upgrade it for me, 10 min later i walked out of 02 bromley with a spanking 810i. I've had nokia for many years and thought i couldn't handle a different make with fuction buttions all over the place, but this phone is fantastic!! Easy to use! Looks and feels great!! Walkman/radio/camera!! Get this phone!!
