Adi, 13 Oct 2008So, what kind of soft and settings are necessary to use the GPS without any cost?You need to disable A-GPS in the phone settings and get free software that stores free maps on the phone, like GpsMid.

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....
abhi, 10 Oct 2008guys please answer, is internet required to use GPS service ?if it's google maps... then yeah... it's a beta thing that uses internet
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

snowy, 08 Oct 2008i,ve bought this handphone last week..at first it really hard to use it especially the keypad.... more@ Snowy
I purchased this phone 2 weeks ago and believe me when i say its the most disappointing gadget I have ever purchased in my life.
Firstly, it has a camera that bad enough to compete with the very first camera phone that were released in 2003, picture quality is utter crap.
Secondly, the GPS uses Wayfinder that nobody here in South Africa supports, Sony themselves dont even know whats happening with the GPS. Wayfinder also dont know why the navigator does'nt work but its their own software.
Apart from the smallest keypad in the industry, this phones battery lock gets seized all the time which makes swopping sim cards a nightmare.
Sony together with Vodacom here in SA are completely not willing to assist with the navigator problems.
I purchased this phone from Vodashop at the Pavillion and trust me when I say they are the worst people to ever deal with.
Advice: SAVE YOURSELF THE MISERY AND DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PIECE OF JUNK.
