I've had this phone for 8 months. Although i was very happy about it because it has quite some nice features for his class and price(the camera is ok, mp3 player, easy-to-use menu), i was dissapointed when i found out it had some serious issues.For example, my soft crashed a few times since i had it.The phone just blocked instantly while i was talking on the phone and i had to restart it to use it again. Another problem i've had was the recharging system. The pins are very sensitive and the phone won't recharge if it's not put in the proper position. I found out after a few hours that my phone dind't recharge at all because the "position" was not right. And the worst thing is that i can't get these problems fixed because they don't occur regularly,only from time to time.So the warranty is useless for my problems.
My suggestion: think twice before you buy it!
I've had the K300i for almost a year now, I really liked it at first, but now I can't wait to get a new phone. I was really disappointed since it has such good reviews.
Pros: compact, I like the shortcuts and the fact that you can record music to use as ringtones
Cons: joystick is hard to use, horrible reception-I frequently don't get calls/texts and recieve the voicemails/texts hours or days later. I know this is not because of my provider since my roommate has the same provider and has great reception.
I have the k300i. Its not a bad mobile BUT the joystick is giving me problems. Sometimes it works but many times it doesn't. So don't by it!!! It also have a poor camera and the charger is also giving me problems. Take my recomandations.
It has almost everything.It costs just 19E.It's cheap and good.Buy it!
I bought this phone for AU$159 and was pretty satisfied with it until a few months after. After 7 months, the keypad walked away from me, then in a year of having the phone, IT WON'T TURN ON ANYMORE!!!!!!!!! Whenever I charge it, there's a red light coming out from the on/off switch. I haven't done anything wrong with it. Never dropped it whatever. My dad's really pissed at me 'cause he thinks its my fault it stuffed up and now he won't let me buy a new phone (W300i) and now I'm stuck with the crappy Nokia 3200.
Pros: - This phone has pretty good features
- The mp3 player is cool
Cons: - No external memory slot
- BAD BAD Camera
- MP3 ringtones have to be protected
- Browser is really crap
- 12MB is S*$%
- The keypad fails after a few months.
- I JUST HATE IT NOW!!!
well what to say about k300i its a mobile which i have been used for last 01 year. its really v. good features.
after being satisfied with this phone for a year already, i'm now planing to have a change for a SAMSUNG phone. seems like SE is not doing that good in the past few months of introducing phones imo. maybe because of the lost in it's revenue caused all those sufferings. but i'm very happy with this phone, will change later to the e250 slider, it looks like D900 but with less powerful camera and screen(though even at stn-type only samsung has the brightest LCD i ever seen=))
good luck SE. and goodbye!
This phone is more a FUN phone It has a MP3-Player but ver poor memory it isn't that beautifull but it has much features but...The Joystick is fun but after 6-8 months It doesn't work good anymore...if you buy a new one DON'T BUY 1 WITH JOYSTICK
Hello with regard to your he/she wonders I can say that the K300 accepts the format Mpeg4, but so that it not recognizes it alone it is to give him the format that one wants but also the file type for that if your you don't give to the file the correct parameter your K300 it won't recognize the video it would recommend you that due to the shared memory that he/she has this cellular one you kept the videos in format 3gp that it is but tablet that the format Mpeg4 but so that he/she reproduces it you should convert it to that format type and format H264 so that it works well. For the sounds the format that the K300 admits is Mpeg3, midi, imy the format Mpeg4 it doesn't accept it neither but that attempt it he/she will reproduce.
Anyone pls inform, how to set the password for pictures & videos in this model
I'm a k300 user.I don't know why the phone doesn't recognise Mpeg4 videos or sounds.Does anyone knows why??

I have had this phone for about a year. It' very nice, It make me love all Sonyericssons (I was a Nokia boy before) What I love about this phone is that "you have what you need and quick" its very handy, practic and have nice features. The camera it's nice, vCard contacts are awesome, Mp3 ringtones, Design your own themes.... You just get float's mobile agent and you have a nice combo.
