well i've purchased my new Sony Ericsson J200i and its not bad at all...i mean its worth every cent...its a real cool phone...and the battery is awesome...it needs recharging every 3 days or so which is enough for most of the people i guess...but the chum ahead of me might have been playing with the polyphonic ring tunes during all those 6 hrs...so the battery might required recharging that early...i think this phone is awesome and i simply love it...and its a perfect phone i think...so if anybody wanna buy something awesome...i would suggest that you can pick this phone as a good choice very safely and it won't disappoint you at all:)
this phone has so many features i just dont know where to begin??? um how bout the awesome navigating joystick its so 2005. the different colours on the screen are like a rainbow. this phone is for the typical business person who needs a high tech well mastered phone. YOU ROCK J200i !!!!!
phone doesn't have mms. it's just a basic phone. buy it if u only want to call
it was a real mistake to purchase j200i,since the battery of the handset is very weak .it does not last even for few hours and needs constant recharging,and the back up power is also very low.apart from some of the cool features of the handset,its of no use to those who are busy with their mobiles
Got this J200i for around 1 month only, and sell it in 2nd hand market for 25% less than the original price. Price here right now around US$ 75 (no plan, I'm in Indonesia). J200i is very elegant built, nice color, and nice sounds. But all of that great stuff cannot hinder its main setback, usability and battery life!. Usability is sucks, keypad just too small, only fit for children/teenager. Keypad also not responsive, very slow compared to Nxxxx button responsiveness. Screen quality is ok, but text too small. SE should work better in font size to increase usability of this product. Battery life is the main drawback of J200i. For standby, it just can stand within 2 days or less. For average user, after 10-15 minutes of talk time, battery only remains half from fully charged state. At first I think there is something wrong with the battery, and I bring my phone to the authorized service center. They immediately inform that battery life is the weak point of J200i and when I said that mine was good for 2 days standby, immediately the CSR inform that this situation with my phone already great (?) because in general usually other people only 1.5 days standby. That CSR also ask whether my phone already updated with latest firmware which they believe fix the problem with battery. Then they check my phone and see the firmware version and inform me that my J200i have the newest firmware, and 2 days standby is the best stamina of J200i battery. No solution. After 1 month, I feel sucks with J200i and sell it with 25% loss from the original value. Not recommended model, usability sucks (keypad and text size), and battery life really2 sucks. Great things : Cheap, nice design, nice sound. SE should work better to improve the performance of their incoming model.
apart from the problems the others have mentioned i'm facing a wierd problem with myine. when i get 2 or 3 messages at time it hangs and vibrates continuously. i've to remove the battery to switch it off and set it right again...
well i tried many cell phones inluciding nokia and motorolla.and i like that j200 coz its cool speaker for ringtones give an excellent result. well that's ture the battery time is low but if you not use your phone very offently then it is a good choice.
i really like this phone, but the battery runs out very quickly, if u don't use your fone alot i recommend u get it! go sony ericsson!!!!
This fone the only good feature is the sound all others is not upto the mark its useless heats up during call and poor battery back up got screwed up within 1 month and 4 days ringer blew up tones did not work customer service did it up but they said it was a mfgr defect charging takes too long time its always best to go for NOKIA this is totally a waste of money.Hard buttons joy stick is sick..Is heats up while speaking feel like throwing it out PLEASE DONT BUY THIS PHONE WHATEVER BUY NOKIA ITS THE BEST !!!!NO RESALE VALUE FOR THE PHONE>>>>>>
j200i has very low bettery & whenever i use to play game it get hang which i hate alot...plz.... dont buy j200i.... bcoz mein ley kar pachta rahin hoo....
J200i have low batteray. It's very short time. Also I ever loose my phone number and massage in this phone, because this phone hang and error.
a total peice of B.S. memeory, battery, keypad and joystik issues have already been mentioned so i wont waste yours an my time brooding over it. What cheezes me off is that my fone is barely 6 months old..and its LCD is already screwed up. It refuses to display anything but blue color. it wont switch off..and on removing the batery and replacing it after some time..switch the fone on to be greeted by a blue screen again..just like one of those "fatal exception" erors in windows. This exact prob has come not only in my fone..but also in the handsets of 2 othr frndds of mine..who have this same shitty set...A COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY
Plz dont buy it bcoz
* very low bettery
* very low resoulation
* very low memory
* very hard buttons & joystick
* sms speed is very slow
and much more problems it have.
so plz dont buy it. thanx
hay man.please dont buy this mobile because its have lots of problem.short betarry life any many more problem
Very short battery life. New phone, fully charged from empty each time and with very little use - it only lasts 3 days tops! Very disappointed. It has also jammed on me and i haven't been able to turn it off. My old Alcatel never let me down and stayed charged for eight days. I only purchased a new one to get tri band and I am off to take this one back. If you buy one, keep your receipt.
plz give me sony ericsson j200i software. or
give me any sight j200i software
hi to all some one plz give me some web sites for downloading Games, ringtones etc for J200i. i will be thankfull to u.
this is a crappy phone, i bought it on the gold coast few months ago. the battery is very 'short', buttons are not functioning properly and i had tech problems with the handset reception. DON'T BUY!!!!! for any price!!!
This is a very slow and rubbish phone. I bought this phone in feb 05 this yr. (With Bill). I have sold this now as it got damaged only after 3 months of usage with only "traces" of water. I got it checked with the company and they said the warranty voids on only traces of moisture and they wanted to charge me something above 2000/-. So got repaired from the local person and sold it off. This phone is good to look but real bad in performance.
1) It hangs usually when you browse Internet.
2) Overall Very slow while processing your commands.
3) Small memory restricted with 30 kb file trasfer size.
4) Phonebook and call records are worst ! no categorization of the records.
5) No MMS feature
6) Very small battery life.
Go for Nokia.. Sony is not trust worthy.
I guess Nokia 3200 or 3220 has many more features to provide with 5-7 days standby time in the same price range.
