Hi , i really wanna buy this phone or W995 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 :)

aino, 24 Oct 2009which is the best.
w995 or aino?the additonal features of aino is that you can access your ps3's content using this aino and that is one feature that w995 doesnt support. also, this is a nHD screen. 3" nHD screen.
it's like a big TV of 46" resized to 3". aino also provides high definition video recording whereas 995 doesnt have that.
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2009Battery life is not good. This and other things I'm sure will be fixed in a firmware update. I... moreno you're wrong. im currently holding an aino and its fine. it plays my mp3. it must be your mp3 file is corrupted or file name is too long. bear in mind that if the file name is too long, it'll not be playable.
i have just tested out this phone in msia.. Whateva negative comments on this phone is nonsense.. This phone is awesome.. the touchscreen is very smooth n sensitive even much much better than the nokia 5800.. the camera is perfect n also the screen is rich in colours...

Ritwik, 23 Oct 2009Arak, what do you think about the comments given below by me and aino before?? I would appreci... moreyou are right , i have been discusing the same issue with our local sony ericsson manager , and he stated that they have already passed messages to sony ericsson regional office to make sony ericsson stop announcing pohones that will be released after 9 months , since what is the use ? like satio and aino it took 9 months to be released and still there are bugs in it .
but let me tell you that all mobile phones that newly released have the same problems , so from the engineering point of view i recommend people not to rush and purchase new electronic gadgets when they are newly released ,, wait for at least 3 to 4 months when new firmwares and in hand and plus the prices are slashed by the companies ,,,
Anonymous, 22 Oct 2009in my experience the very first batch tends to be sim free and are perfect. once they get lock... moreI agree with you and actually i was intending to write about it ,
the free phones (unlockedphones) have less problems than the locked ones , since the telecommunication companies play with the software and make it buggy and usless sometimes ..
i had many sony ericsson phones and mostly were ok to me
i ask sum1 to buy this phone frm bahrain coz in msia not yet out in sum stores.. so reaslly cant wait to get it
I guess to sum up my experience, and keeping in mind that any negative feedback should be addressed with a firmware update, if you're like me and don't care about PDAs, Blackberrys, IPhones, smartphones, etc., then this is the best Sony Ericsson phone yet.

if you are using your phone hardly today and you still got 1/2 the battery then it may be a good sign that the battery is good, i hope so.
by the way my old phone Z 520 can play mp3 as alarm tone so i think all SE phones can do that.
i wish that all my previous opinions are wrong because i like this phone and hope it will be good phone to buy.

Battery life is not good. This and other things I'm sure will be fixed in a firmware update. I can't wait to see what will be changed/fixed.
I don't even use half the features this phone has and still at the end of the day I only have about ½ battery left.
I have found something very strange about this phone! It cannot use MP3s for alarm tones. To my knowledge this is the only Sony phone like that. It lets you choose an MP3 for the alarm, but plays a default ringtone instead.
