Hi all, is there a way of switching off the 3G so that the phone only works on gprs or another network?
What is the average battery life for this cellphone? I got one last week but it seems I have to charge it every 3 days or so. I receive very few calls and don't normally use the camera etc.
alvin tumlos, 13 Oct 2008is it also provided in the philippines for globe network? where can i find gpsmid? You can download Osm2GpsMid to your PC for creating GpsMid with map data for your mobile. Have a reading at http://gpsmid.sf.net and http://osm2gpsmid.sf.net
Map quality depends on map quality of www.openstreetmap.org for the philippines. Openstreetmap's maps are improved and made more complete all the time by people like you and me.

abhi, 10 Oct 2008guys please answer, is internet required to use GPS service ?no. all u have have is gprs installed. thats it
Really cool phone bec. it is made out of Shock, splash and dust resistant
Survived a drop in the toilet. Was fogged up for a day but after that... amazing!
Dropped it into water about five times and it's survived graciously.
The buttons are a little... odd... my 6 sticks a little bit but if I don't remember, I don't notice.
THE CAMERA IS AWFUL... EVEN IN FULL LIGHT. It takes FOREVERRRRR to take a picture. That was a big disappointment....

Pros: Compact size + Good build quality from Sony Ericsson Phone. The music player is good among the pack of competitor. Personally, I find the black color edition nicer than the cyan colour, which could be more appealing to younger consumer. This phone still use the M2 memory stick - no need to fork out extra money. The Camera is effective and has face detection feature.
Cons: The memu is showing its age as new offering from Samsung & Nokia, even the more dreadful Apple iPhone. The CPU is abit lag when u open music player and do sms together. The GPS may need u to pay for the internet connection, the map cannot be download from computer thern transferred to HP.
The phone looks appealing. I have just try for less than 2hrs. I still prefer SE as the battery life seems better than Nokia.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970guys help me out. i need a person with an actual experience with the phone ok? im thinking of buying this phone for my girlfriend. is it any good? does it have any issues? im choosing between this phone and the K770. the latter is a cheaper phone ofcourse. but this phone (based on the review) seems jampacked with all the new sony ericsson features (message manager/file browser,etc). does the phone include a memory card with the package?...i just wanna know if this phone is worth the extra that im gonna be paying for in comparison to going for the cheaper K770. much appreciated. thanx.
abhi, 10 Oct 2008guys please answer, is internet required to use GPS service ?yes it does. live GPS (meaning it's real time) requires that. if you dont want that you can just download a map software which will show you...well...a map.
abhi, 10 Oct 2008guys please answer, is internet required to use GPS service ?depends on GPS software and phone settings
Planning to buy this phone but wanted to find out whether the GPS works well in South Africa and whether the GPS is free?
Can this phone take photos in the dark, does it have a xenon flash?
Thanks in advance, much appreciated for the reply.
