Look i am sorry but this phone has loose slides in a certain faulty batch. You cant go round saying people are lying they got a faulty phone. And the problem with the battery saying USE ONLY A SONY BATTERY is a very real common problem with Sony Ericsson i am afraid. I got a c510 and a w995 from Carphonewarehouse. Both had the faulty battery problem. So dont go saying we are lying and we dont say Carphone or O2 sell fake phones. We are saying its a faulty one. There is such a thing. If you noticed Sony Ericsson is 5th in the market place. Why? Because ever since the k850i days all they do is produce the same old phones with consistant faults. Google it i am sure you will find the common problems with Sony Ericsson.

Anonymous, 24 Oct 2009planning to buy Siver colour W 995. What say? Comments please.My W995 is silver. It looks very nice with the shiny metallic look, and is beautiful when the media buttons glow orange. Also, I personally like the traditional orange walkman logo. The black and red versions have a blue logo.
Hi , i really wanna buy this phone or Aino but does it have a lock feature to prevent other users from seeing what's on ur phone? Like on iPhone, if you lock the phone you need to enter a password to get back to standby screen. If this doesn't have this feature, can i install it somehow or get it somewhere? It cant be a java app since the user can kill the app via task manager which would make it useless...
thanks - hope some clever person can answer :)

Unless your phone is a complete fake. Now would 02-UK supply fake phones?
Orton, 24 Oct 2009Very disappointed. I was abt 2 buy dis phone. Bt a lot of people complained abt loose sliders.I think you shouldn't believe the nutter Fanboys on this website.
I currently own a W995 and i've had it since August only 3 Months and so far the Slider is as perfect as the day i got it, Perfectly TIGHT, you can hear the bang when it closes as the slider is that tight!
I had a N95 8GB before the W995 and N95 has a much worse slider then W995, the N95 has such a loose slider it used to slide in my pocket and then start playing music thanks to the rubbish buttons on the N95.
W995's slider is honestly just PERFECT
so go and buy it and you won't regret!
not happy with the phone what so ever!! o2 had to give me the phone twice because broke with the same problem! had to send it back the 3rd time to get fixed, im still waitinf on getting it back!
all what happened was play the video on phone, then it crashes, then cant charge all it said "NOT A SONY BATTERY" not net work etc etc
Very disappointed. I was abt 2 buy dis phone. Bt a lot of people complained abt loose sliders.

Anonymous, 23 Oct 2009very good phone missing OSSE's UI is good enough, it does what N95 does but with no drawbacks of the Symbian equivalents
