chill out everyone the bootloaders have been opened ready for custom Roms. 2.2 or even 2.3 gingerbread coming your way.
My wife has been using x10 mini pro for more than 3 months now. But we are not satisfied with the user interface of the phone.
The good things about the phones are: 1. Small size, 2. querty keypad. Fortunately, the phone has not hung anytime so far. But that's it. I've nokia c6-01 with symbian 3. Whereas, x10 has Android. I must say that we don't have good experience. The interface is missing silly little things. Few examples are:
1. There is no way to delete all contacts at one shot! You need to search & download some app from droind market.
2. The notification for reminders & SMS reception is same. Generally, you can set separate tones for these 2. But this phone simply doesn't support. If you look at the user guide page 32 (or 33), it mentions steps to setup different tone for messages. But such setting is not present. When I inquired in sony ericson customer support through mail, I didn't get reply even though I got a ticket number. I then called up the support & they told that this is not possible.
3. The PC app is worse than Nokia's OVI suite. You can't sync different items in separate folders!
4. The home screen is not much configurable. Compare this to Nokia. It is very flexible.
I don't have any experience of iPhone so cant compare. But I'm really impressed with Nokia's symbian 3 as opposed to Android. In Android, you need to go to market for every small thing. This is really time consuming.
Sony is supposed to have a better camera. But again, I didn't find it much different than nokia c6-01.
I won't recommend this phone.
I just bought this phone i upgraded it to android 2.1 anyway i like it so much it is fast and has an excellent touch sensitivity i recommend it, it deserves every cent
Well, people i have one and is very good cellphone, comfortable, you have a lot of options to use it, in your way. I recomend you BUY NOW :P +10
This is a very good phone, it is very cute to use that.
But I wont recommt anyone more to buy this ... bcas of following reasons
1) low battery backup ... every half day u need to charge
2) No software update (to the market) from Sony Ericsson.
SE is not ready to update OS about Android v2.1. Now most of the android mobiles in market is above v2.1. So all softwares available in market is also coming for 2.2 and above... to be simple, if you buy this mobile u will left with buying a costly (in comparison with similr models) , outdatted mobile.
What are the problems I am facing with no upgrade above 2.1?
•Softwares can be insalled only in mobile and not in SD card... so only limited softwares are permitted.
•most of the android market applications are going to be supporting only mobiles from 2.2 and above
•Mobile is very slow.
i bought this phone 2 months back.... and i am facing so many problem ... like after receiving songs frm blutoth... the songs gets mixmatch... auto on off phone... i am using handcent but after some days all msgs gets delete automatically... once i gave to service center they said the phone needs an update gain so i did it ... but still i am facing same problem ...restore application also not working after few percentage the phone gets off automatically what should i do.///
So ... i'd like to know, my options are either blackberry or this phone ... which is the better option?
i just purxhased it,i am not able to send pics n videos from mobile to lappy...everytym it indicates that please insert memory card..don knw wat 2 do??? can any one suggest me
please somebody guide me whether i should go for this phone or not?does it hang?also tell me about the video and camera quality...cant i zoom while taking snaps?

i started using phones with sony erics. & this is my third phn. i like this phn, first few days i was not able to understand the operating system, now i m used to it. 1 thing i dont like about this phn is battery back up.by the end of the day my battery get finished which is been charged 100% in morning. i get replaced the battery frm sony care but still there is an same problem. is some body having this problem.
the wi-fi doesnt seem to work properly even the reception its always low. can someone pls tell me if its making these faults due to the country ? im in malta and i bought it from england
After much umming and ahhhhing i bought this phone, what a mistake the battery life is rubbish, first thought it might of been the battery so bought another genuine item but was still the same, i travel for 23 hr and it won't last even with minimal use and when isay minimal i mean not a lot, give it a wide berth if you want battery life.
