You guys need to drop O2 and look somewhere else. I just went to ebay and found 17 different W810i phone's for sale. And 4 of those phone's are from a company that i have personally purchased phone's from b4 so i know they are trust worthy. There are so many other companies out there that have these phone's already.
You guys need to stop being lazy and search the web and drop that 02 place cause they are giving u the run-around. Now unless u like to get pist and love hearing their excuses then go ahead and call them. The cheapest i have seen is $464 for this phone plus shipping. Some of these companies out there are lowering the price of the phone to trick u in thinking that u are getting it for that cheap, but in tern they are jacking up the shipping price way too high. I know for a fact that here in the USA if u ship a cell phone from one side of the country to another via UPS ground or fed ex ground it should Not cost more than $9 period. I know cause i have done it. And most of these places are charging up to $50 for shipping to compensate for the "low" phone price... Open your eyes and read...
Again, u crying babies need to drop O2 and go somewhere else....
O2 can't help this - it is when Sony deliver it for them !!!
Nobody else has it out - and if they do it won't have the correct settings in it !!!
Im sure this will a sutible upgrade to my now ageing T68i. Simple question is, Whats the build qulity on the SE phones now adays are they as good as the old models?? My T68i has survived everything from being Dropped to being submerged in water for nearly 2 hours and it still works like the day I got it. Will the W810i survive this sort of treatment??
Iv'e just been told 4 april now, its getting stupid now, everytime i call its a different, later date.
It no longer says it will take 5-7 days so might aswell order it off o2 online then you will get the phone quicker lol
jon, how did u order your phone with o2? via the website? or telephone? if online then it states that it will take 5-7 days for delivery.. thats because just like over the phone and in stores, its been pushed back. im gonna leave it til monday before i try calling again.
now really, what has this phone better than w800?
design is better, ok, but pay ~200$ more for design? ehm...
I work at a high street phone dealership, and i really want this phone, so i emailed our logistics dept. Apparently we will be getting the vodafone version wk starting the 3rd of april, the orand model, week starting 10th of april, and the generic model week starting the 17th of april.
Which is a bummer as i want the handset on t-mobile, so i'll have to wait untill 17th of april to get it!!!
Why did that guy ask how much they cost, only 3 comments up from a person saying the got it for $512? And why would you pay £500 for a phone you would get for free on a pay monthly contract? Its such a waste of money!
I am getting really fed up with O2 constantly delaying this phone. I been calling every week for last 3 weeks and each time i am told a new release date. Just got off phone and was told to call back Monday next week. I really want this phone. Might just give up and go get the 6280 from other network!
o2 have pushed this model back again till late this week (30th/31st March) :-(
hey w810i, i have no problems transfering 2mp pics into my computer. i just copy and pasted from "file transfer manager", well it's under jpeg format. O_o the mxe-60 is a nice accesory :)
this fone doesnt have problems transferring songs as the disc2phone (supplied software) converts the songs to different bitrate (depends if u want to) or u can transfer the songs as they are saved on ur computer.
hope this helps
Hey Chanmel, this W810i does not have a flash. Althought this site says its has a flash, its not. Its just a plain old light. If u want a flash you must buy the MXE-60 accessory. That is an external flash module that you hook up to the phone.
Take a 2mp picture and upload it to your computer via bluetooth or data cable and see if it stays at 2mp or if it drops to VGA...
The reason why I told u that the W810i took micro SD card is because you didnt take the time to look at the specs of this phone. You could have looked here on gsmarena or sony ericsson website and found out that both the W810i and PSP take the same memory stick, but since you didnt bother to take the time to do some reading, I posted you with the wrong answer so that you would wake up to stop asking ignorant questions. And this goes for all you guys that keep asking these rediculous questions regarding specs on this phone... try reading the specs 1st and maybe you will find your answer. And to those that can spell or use proper words with proper punctuation... get off this forum... Your wasting our time
ordered from plemix for $512 plus tax and should be here tomorrow. AVAILABLE sim free on their site so go get it! i have a k750 which broke down after too many drops and tosses so im getting this, ill be back to compare!
I spoke to o2 today and they said i'm unable to order the phone until next monday/tuesday.. if it gets pushed back anymore i will go nuts
quick non-biased review of the w810i from me.
-phone functionality- 8
-phone design- 9.5
-performance- only had it for an hour- 7
confusing controls... haven't even figured out how to have the camera "flash" when i take a picture. the best i could do was leave the flashlight on and take a pic. picture quality in the dark was very bad. autofocus feature was very disappointing. the sound is excellent. the features were O.K. I uploaded all of my songs into the little 512mb card in a matter of a few minutes via usb 2.0. the bluetooth functions perfectly for 1.2.
this phone totally looks great, feels great, and doesn't weight much. it is suprisingly small, about the size of a credit card... it's also quite thin, maybe the size of the average middle-finger nail. the buttons feel great; im a proficient texter, so this was a big plus, apart from my old SE, nokia, and moto, where the buttons were all either too hard to push in, too small, or just plain uncomfortable. these buttons actually have a good feel, and pushes in without a fuss.
somewhat annoyed at trying to figure out all of the features.
great phone, probably better than most phones out there ATM. Don't expect too much from the camera though... worth the buy? Yes. especially if you want a phone with a good mp3 player.
