Did you know that in Saudi Arabia, Sony Ericsson was now the no.1. And the other leave behind.
Does any body know if W890 (or any brand of phone)
has feature to switch off music player on a set time.
W950i and 960i has got it.
As dissapointed as i was, i realy love this phone.
Is there a Website where i can download software for it so that i can start using it?
Please help me...
my phone falled down to wet area when i sent it for repair they said un repairable

SONY walkman sounds much much better than ipod ,i mean any ipod .i want music pla... moreIt's better using playlists and having the album art support using the software instead of using the drag n drop method, which I perform also!
But I usually drag n drop the files AFTER I imported them into iTunes after I've tagged the files with the album art!
Too bad SE's Media software, now updated to MediaGo, still S-cks!! SE never can make good media software for their phones!!
Slash, 23 Jun 2009firmware update - HELP !!!
i am having problems updating my firmware.
i have the phone abo... moreDownload the NEW Update software (check out the newer models like the W995's software section). It's much better than the previous version which was Cr-p!!
Still have my w890 and upgraded it and it works fine though now it's my backup phone as I've switched over to the W995!
Weird how many people are complaining about the phone now especially how it restarts itself! Never had that problem with mine(KNOCK ON WOOD)!
It's a good phone with good reception, depending on the call area) and the media player works fine!
Just a tad small and the camera S-cks! No AF/Flash so shots generally came out blurry! Use a dedicated digital camera so don't care anymore! It's not meant to be a camera phone anyway!
The w890 is now replaced by the W705 which is a slider phone but the camera still isn't good, according to various online reviews! It is a Walkman phone!
i used this phone for 4 months, this phone really good.. before i updated software, this phone always restart. but after that it's ok to use this....
when use camera just don't use camera shutter, just d-pad to avoid blur when u take a picture.
After 9 months of usage, these are the major issues plaguing the phone
- Photos are very prone to shaking, where even slight movement makes the photos blurry, thus rendering it almost useless.
- Frequent errors at certain memory points used to store SMS messages. Deleting these messages in bulk results in instant reboot, or complete crash with a red light (recovery by removing battery)
- Occasional crashes on answering calls.
- Music skips or stalls while playing halfway.
I don't recommend this phone unless you like the slim look and feel, which was what caught my attention in the first place.
i had a long desire to use sonyericsson and my first set is this.my i m now bored to use this set. it hangs several times in a day. i personally discourage the user to use this set.
I personally would tell anybody to take this phone, its a very good phone, if it give software problems. They give you a new one. And there's not much with problems.. Sony ericsson rule.

it's a great slim paper weight phone.. very cool too have.... but my w890i has a problem... it slows other phone functions during playback... sometimes it even restarts and sets theme and ringtones to default... hope sony ericsson gets a soltion to this problem...
I had this phone
Loved it appearance and stylish design, but was an embarassment as it kept restarting
Software can't be upgraded
Makes nice paper-weight though
Anonymous, 24 Jun 2009i am sure your phone is not normal sony phone.it hv some thing to do with other brands tht's y... morethanks for the comments, but i am sure my phone is a regular SE phone.
the Vodafone icon is there only because it had the Vodafone firmware for some reason.
when newer firmware was flashed, it was gone (but unfortunately so did some of the languages).
the question is how the fimrware language is added?
maybe it is a different file that the store can add to the latest firmware which they do have...
