I've had this phone now for just under a week, and I have to say, it is absolutely brilliant. The speed of the OS and functions of the phone are just simply awesome I've used Nokia's for as long as I can remember. This is the only non Nokia phone I would have gone for and I don't regret it. The construction of the phone is flawless. Anyone who would consider buying/upgrading to this phone, do it. You won't regret it.
I don't think there is one that allows you to watch full youtube, probably mobile youtube, but you can watch mobile youtube on this phone, all you need to do is open up ports on your router, don't know which, you can eather google for them or open all ports, which is what I did. That is if you are using wifi.
hi! do you know if there's any application for this phone that helps me watch videos from youtube?
does 'handymsn' compatible with this phone? btw i'm using the ancient SE Z800i n plan to buy a new cell phone.. can u guys give me options/suggestion of various good/best cell phones plz? thanks n i'll appreciate it..
Guess the contact form on sony ericsson's site works, whatever you submit it sends it, but you get a 404 page not found afterwards. I sent them probably at least 10 same messages cause I thought the message weren't sent. I just got a reply today, they said that they will have to look at the phone to determine if they will cover it under warranty. Since the scratches are really bad on the screen, I am going to send it in to them, hoping they will or they should cover it, the stylus scratched it, and not only once it happened to me twice.
Don't know if you know it but you can watch youtube mobile and that's what he was asking. If you try watching any of the videos on youtube mobile site they will not work if you don't open up ports on your router.
WIFI CONECTION PROBLEM - SOLUTION!!!
I had troubles connecting my phone to my Personal WPA protected wifi at home and it was also buging with 3g when wifi was set up. here's what you got to do:
- go to internet accounts in settings of the phone and set up wifi account for your home wifi. On AES it didn't work for me. So I switched my router to mixed TKIP+AES security and set it on Mixed G+B wireless standards. Enter the WAP passphrase, set it on TKIP encoding and make sure the connection is set on Infrastructure type in the settings of the account. (If your router doesn't support mixed modes for speed and encoding you'll have to set it to B and TKIP encoding, however that will slow down your overall internet connection for all your computers that use that router, G is not supported by w960 and AES seems to bug)
- after that you have to put the new wifi account in the same group with your GPRS/3G mobile provider account that is normally being preset by default. give the wifi account priority over the 3G connection, via More menu and assigning the sequence of connection. Same goes for the group of accounts - the group where you are setting up your wifi has to have priority over all other internet accounts groups. (that little bastard is way to smart for his age, on contrary to N95 it doesn't ask you anymore which connection to use, but uses the hierarchy of connections that you set up for him by means of groups of accounts and connections)
Now when you have wifi on and you are at home your phone will use your home wifi. When outdoors it will use the 3G connection.
I've read around that hot-spots don't cause any troubles with connection.
Now that I got that only issue i had with w960 solved and shared with you guys I will fall in eternal nirvana of that phone. It beats the fucking iPhone ten times by all parameters. (played with iPhone - feeling of simplicity with an aftertaste of clusterphoby, but sure it's funky, that's about it)
Every feature is very nice but I feel there is 1 lacking in this Handset it has no edge modem.
I am user of w810i. It covers all the site of feature.
hey guys jus wanderin if i shud buy this on ebay, i want it kz its not out in stores yet, and wen i buy sumthing new i make sure its the latest..i dnt want to spend a massive 600 if i dnt liek the phone wen i get it.. is it werth gettin?!...wats the downsides? goodsides?
Thats because Opera 8.65 doesn't support Flash content.
We have to wait till SE release another FW Update with the Opera 9 included, which supports Flash.
Till then... you can try this great site:
It has all videos of YouTube, MySpace, Daily Motion, MetaCafe and many more !
You can also DOWNLOAD them for free at low or high quality !

Swiss Manager is an advanced task manager with extra features, like info about yo phone etc.
Moby Explorer is a great File Manager. Another filemanager is X-Plore, which i use. You can compress and decompress (Zip-Unzip) files, restore hidden files, see system folders and dirves and many more things like create and edit HTML, HEX editor...
Linkboy... ermm... I thought it was "F*ckboy" LOL
Nah... i'm just kiddin' :)
I don't know what it is bro
i checked out that Screen Shield and i just wanna kno, won't it effect the touch-screen? and i kno its only 2mm but that should be enough to make it hard for the device to pick up touch signals...
thanks for the reply Sir Nerman. Will they ship internationally? Im from philipines thats why im doubting how much will it cost for a custom fitted protector. thanks for informing anyway. i wish their willing to ship it here.
I've heard that it takes ages to actually take a picture with the old firmware. How much has the new firmware improved this though? Is it still considered sluggish, or is it your typical camera standard of like click and it's immediately taken?
Ahh, forgot to put my name below, that's me below the person with no name.
Or you could get the screen protector for P1, don't know what is the exact size of the screen for P1 but I am guessing it's somewhat same with the w960, since I don't mind paying more I am getting a custom one, you provide them with measurements of the screen, pay $4.95 right away, then they send you how much money it's going to be total. From what I have seen this looks like it might be the best shield available, some of the things they show in their demo videos on their site could never be done to other screen protectors.
Guys I bought and i cant tell you how happy am I with such a gadget. It is a luxurious mobile and music machine which enables you to carry everything in your hands. NO need for this snobish Iphone at all which is fit for nothing and lots of complications. Go ahead it is a perfect choice, a very good ratio for added value for your money.
They don't have one premade for this phone, you have to custom order one, you have to pay more this way but it's worth it, I am going to get one soon, just got to contact sony ericsson and see if they are going to do anything about the scratched screen.
Hi! A visited the invisibleshield.com, I didnt find any screen protector for W960i, thats why i bought china made screen protector to prevent it from scratches. i dont know how long it will last from everyday use. i wish invinsible shield will make for this one!
Why is it that my phone memory is always 53% only!??
@ next level
whats the use of swiss manager, moby explorer and linkboy? is it worth to be installed??? thanks and more power to SE!
