I have not charged the phone since my last post 11 days ago. Today is the first time it displayed the empty battery warning.
All in all a good result: 11 days on a single charge with about 8 hours of talk time. Just a little bit short of the two weeks I hoped for, but it definitely seems possible to get 2/3 weeks of standby if you're careful. The Auto Power Off/On helps as well.
Good phone otherwise as well. Good feel, good call quality.
this phone has no java, than you'll have to buy the 9@9u or q or w which also have extended batterylifes, however not as outstanding as this 9@9k. it has wap 2.0 browser and thats it, no opera etc. its a us$ 100.- phone, what do you expect ??
same as for sound quality, its not bad, but it isn't high class either and indeed, there is an equalizer but it doesn't work. and the other hand the phone supports bluetooth stereo headset !! ( only in mp3 format ).
Hay..i want 2 buy this phone. So i need help...does this phone has java.? can this phone run opera mini & mig33.? Plz help me..thanx
Got this phone 2 days ago. I like the phone model and looks, but bought it for the battery life. So far it is not looking very good. I have a 1850mAh battery and after one day of moderate use the battery indicator has gone from full to 3/4 full. I will see how it performs the next few weeks. I don't expect to get 2 months of use out of a single charge but 2 weeks I think should be reasonable.
An other minus is the poor sound quality of MP3 over headphones. I cannot hear any difference between different EQ settings (e.g. "Bass Boost", "Hip Hop", "Rock", etc). Calendar is limited to 30 events (according to the manual), this is a bit disappointing.
Otherwise pretty quick in menu's, fairly easy to use and decent build quality. But of course the reason to buy this is the battery.
If it has a quadband version with no camera, I'll buy it for sure.
i am using this phone aside from a 9@9u and i am very satisfied with the features / promises / price combination. I can easily use it 4 - 5 days on 1 charge while with nokia and ericsson with features like this phone and same use 12 - 18 hours.
the phone is very easy to use, very fast reacting. camera low end. Mp3 players plays any kind of song saved in the formats m4a, wav, aac, mp3 indeed. You can even use a bluetooth stereo headset but than only with mp3 songs. one of the comments is right, you can only save 1 mobile number under one name, but you can also save under the same name a score of other numbers , complete address, email add etc. Of course new addresses can be added to the phone book, however when you open the phone book and go to 'add new', you should press 'ok' and not 'options' to be able to add another entry.
I find the battery life simply amazing. I wonder what tweety is doing with his/her phone ? Do you play the mp3 player all day through the loudspeaker ?
Warning: in contrary to 9@9u, this one does not play mp3 in the back ground.

To question from davao: signal strength is really outstanding as with most philips phones. However not with all ( Philips 960 for instants ).

I asked for help.
I bought 9@9k 1 week ago. When I put the sim card in it, the display showed Rabbit. Supposed it showed the name of service provider.
I want to know what had happened and how to remove the name of service provider?
This is great mobile phone for me! I used to want to a entry level mobile phone with basic multimedia specifications. I bought this phone and I'm very happy. Charge is perfect(15-20 days). Camera is vey bad but this isn't important for me.
I am from the Philippines specifically Davao City Mindanao area. I just want to know the signal strength. Hope to hear from you
Can you give the details of your battery? Is it 1759 naMh?
Where is your location?
Does anyone knows the signal strength of this phone? Please rate it 0-10 (0 as worst and 10 as best) signal strength phone. Please reply
Up to 17 hour is not possible. Cause I will by a 9@9k hand set. Maximum talk time is 4 to 5 hours, stand by time 2 days.
I've got one!Battery status: Only 4 days maximum in normal use!Very dissatisfied!
we need a 3G Xenium phone with battery that last long.
can you please make one for us?
