kim, 13 Apr 2010Hi all does anyone know how to get the back off on the new sony ericsson elm...sorry im a girl ;)Above fast port there is a small hole. Put your nail inside and push gently outside.
No USB cable, Slow GPS, Auto rotate does not always work and not in all applications. No touch screen, Only a compromise in this price.
I was thinking a way to clear my browsing history/cache in SE Elm but sadly I can't find :-( Any help?
Just bought! And it can stream youtube videos through Wifi!
Gsmarena, please correct your review saying streaming videos is not possible through wifi, thanks!

But a lot of people would still think that this phone is just perfect. Not everyone is into humongous display or touch screen for that matter.
Pnone such as the ELM, still has an audience.
If you want 2.6 in screen, just wait for Hazel to comes out, Elm is for people who want compact form factor and cheaper price.
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2010Sorry but you are being silly. This phone has great features for the price thats why screen is... moreI am not judging picture quality by screen size - i'm saying web browsing, viewing maps and viewing videos is not as good on such a tiny screen, so it takes some shine away form all the features like Wifi and GPS - read my post carefully please. 3g Wifi is great, yes i can browse the web, but thats a pretty small screen to really enjoy any website. The same goes particularly for maps. There are a lot of candbars out there with 2.4 screens. SE have done better. This is what i posted, READ CAREFULLY!
I had a look at it in store and was immediately unimpressed. The display is just way too small. Its a major deal breaker. And then no video call camera. So there is no point putting 3g there. 3g is for web browsing I hear you say. Web browsing? Really? On a 2.2 inch screen? While paying expensive 3g data charges? I think not. But wait, it had GPS. Ah yes, I can get directions and maps. MAPS? ON A 2.2 INCH SCREEN!!?? Okay it does help for geo tagging pictures, but is that such a crucial service? Come on SE, please try to take us a little bit seriously. This phone is there because there are still factories churning out fast port accessories. They have to go somewhere right? Okay the Wi-Fi is cool, coz if I’m gonna browse the web on a 2.2 screen, it better be free internet or cheap edge/gprs. Personally I would go for the Motorola Motozine ZN5. Gorgeous metallic build, great camera with a proper xenon flash AND a 3.5mm jack. Sure, there's no 3g and GPS, but on a candy bar with such a small screen, I wouldn’t use them. Plus the display is even slightly larger than the SE. The only drawback is that the interface on the Moto doesn’t even come close to that tried and trusted SE interface, which can still outsmart a few smart phones. But did I mention that the Moto is way cheaper? Of course the lord of the old skool non touch candybars remains the Nokia N79, but that costs more than both of these. Nice try SE but a 2.4 or even 2.6 display would have made more sense, and a video call cam cant be that expensive for you to fit. Just lose the gps.
this phone seems nice, Features and everything looks great Specially the price tag,
Well Done SE

jimbuko, 10 Apr 2010not a very expensive phone, and is has a lot of options for your money, even wifiNo wifi in it...
SE can you release a new firmware for this ELM, so that video streaming is possible via WIFI, isn't that a big drawback, for this phone, having WIFI, but not supporting video streaming over WIFI. The phone features are nice.
