I have read with interest all the comments on this phone so far and all I would say is if you want a modern, lightweight, good value for money phone then this should be on your shortlist (especially if you're a PAYT customer)
So what if its specific to vodafone? No mobile phone operator can be without criticism. The services that vodafone offer are suitable for me!
So its looks aren't to everyones tastes, but I like it-beauty is in the eye of the beholder! The colour might look better for some if you change the themes, wallpaper. Switched on or off it looks fine to me. The screen is excellent-large and clear, and though the keys are close together they are responsive and positive.
I am aware of its short comings-it COULD do with more memory, but it is a fun phone. As for a radio I would want a phone with a DAB radio anyway!!
Not everyone can have everything they want, and there will always be a better phone out there.
Each to his own but if you buy this phone (or the similar K500) you won't be disappointed. :))
i dont like msging on this phone...
cuz you cant just normally type in the words like other phones...u get this annoying thing that comes up where u have to scroll down and select the letters.....it takes 100 tymes longer to type up msgs.....
i wonder why they decided to put that feature in...its pointless and its more of a hassle, cuz u cant type in normally....
Does anybody knows the quality of the pics and can a Sony Ericsson F500i owner place a pic or a link to a pic taken with the phone
To all complainers:
Ehh, your opinion about design and looks are noted but YOU ARE NOT STANDARDSETTERS.
Peoples taste differs OK ?
I like the phone , it's light and packed with features for midusers. you have to look at the price! You get A LOT OF PHONE for very little money.
The phone is great, no doubt avbout it.
Works with irda and FMA (Floats Mobile )
i buy this phone 3 days ago and i think this is a great phone for the price of 229euros.a lot of futures,12mb memory,video,mp3 and sonyericsson quality.
doesnt look that bad comeon. great features for the price. at least its better than the fucking T630and T610.
Good quality for video phone and at a good price too.
a great trendy litle phone with great picture and video quality with some good sound affects
For a mid-range phone it's great... I love mine, the size is great and the quality is excellent.. it has a lot of great features... Nokia should start to wake up to the competition in price for value before their customers do!
For all of you who are complaining about the desgin!!!....
STOP... F500 is for Vodafone, that's why it looks like shit. It's Vodafone ;)...
Check out the K500 instead!...
k700 is extermly perfect but there is one thing, it is the capicity of the memory.
SE had did a good job with the P900, K700 and S700. But this phone is really a turn off
hey does that says things bad bout this phone pls do go find out more. this is design to be a economic phone for k700i and pls dun compare. but it do pack great features in side the phone!!! go read more and compare wif other phones. b4 u condemm a phone, pls try it out first.plus that niko guy who is a nlkia fans. hey do u know how much SE phones have improve but nokia phone have ust become more and more useless and outdated?
Boof! I was wrong when I thought my father's motorola m3788 was the worst in the world.
cheap look, and ugly desing, thats all, there are better looking phones out there and there cannot be any dispute about that! desingers should think about that each time they produce a new phone. this could be an economy phone, but even the older models in this range would do better than this.
