Mine has excellent battery life, if I don't talk very much battery lasts at least a week, sometimes 10 days, and phone is on all day every day, sometimes when I sleep. I always charge the phone when the phone's off and battery is completely empty. This is version for European market (says EU 900 when I open the lid), branded by T-Mobile Croatia (basic prepaid).
Instructions on how to open it: there is a small hole in the back of the phone. Use your fingernail on that hole, pull it downwards (towards the USB and earphone connectors). It will click and slide down aproximatelly 1 mm. Now hold that small part that slided firmly, with fingernails of one hand and stick your other hand's fingernail (index finger) into MiniUSB port. Pull in opposite directions, it will open.
To eject battery there's a small hole inside on the lower part (close to USB ports), where you stick fingernail or screwdriver and it will pop out. SIM card is under the battery, easy to put in and remove.
If you eject the battery you will have to set the time & day again, but that's liek 15 seconds work.
Hope this helps.
colin greenford, 28 Dec 2008great little phone...but how do you turn up the volume during a call!!specs say volume keys @ ... moreDuring a phone call (while calling), press up or down button (navigation button: FM or Address book)
This phone has 3.5mm audio jack and mini usb port. Can be charged from PC or Laptop using standard mini usb cable.
Good battery life. While this is the cheapest, it has the feature of the most expensive SE phone.
This phone can share the same Charger with SE X1.
Does anyone (who actually has one of these)know/ can check - when you loose power (dead / remove battery) does the phone loose its settings? i.e date and time.
For occasional use and may go a while without a charge, don't want a phone i have to set up every blue moon before i use it.
its not really a great phone.
It is suitable for user who any use mobile phone before.
It is very good phone and it as good battery life i am geting good battery pack up also .i am using it .
great little phone...but how do you turn up the volume during a call!!specs say volume keys @ side of phone but i dont see them...can anyone help(apart from buying volume control headphones)
hi the phone is very bad battery life is too short as china model only use in that phone is fm sound is quite good
hmm. . . looks like the copy of nokia's 1100. . . the torch function and the keypad?
Isn't it ironic that this low end phone has a 3.5 mm jack but other Sony Ericsson *ERM WALKMAN PHONES!* have that stupid proprietary jack?
If not mistaken entry level phones like S302, W302, F305, J132, K330 is not purely made by SE but by Sagem. So maybe there's is incompatibility like in themes, application etc. From now all entry level phones from SE will be made by Sagem.
To get the back off
Just push the catch on the back down, grip the side of the phone at the bottom with one hand and the top and bottom of the phone with the other and pull apart.
Very short battery life- less than 2 days. Besides has a tendency to turn off during the talk. Very disspointed. Do not recommend to anyone!
what's the point of the 3.5mm jack in this phone?????
SE are so strange, they should put it into the walkman phones.
