The Good about k610i:
1. It's support AAC+, try to convert CD Audio to .m4a (aacPlus) 64 kbit/s 44100Hz Stereo with Easy CD-DA Extractor 10, the quality sound is same with mp3 128 kbit/s 44100Hz Stereo. The size od .m4a is 50% more small tha MP3. Bye bye... Mp3..
2. The java game with 3D is faster and no more lag than any K series and W series (except W900).
I have this phone for 6 months and NO PROBLEMMM i have found, last night i'm update the sotware to R1JG001 via SEUS and make my phone more fantastic fast and stable, this is the one of fantastic phone that i have. BRAVO SE!!!
if you want the cool looks, larger memory and have more budget then go for the K618. but if you want the excellent business looks and feel and have a tight budget then go for K610. spec wise nothings different. both can accomodate 4Gb M2 cards which is amazing for such a size.
so you mean that all SEs have that problem and sucks? i have some advice for your unit...
-upgrade your firmware as it is an essential problem solver and is important in all kinds of cellphone brands.
honestly i don't have that problem in my K618 and K750 phone. so i can't understand why you're saying you won't buy sony ever for that cause. it's like all SE sucks just because your own K610 sucks. have enough knowledge before saying something.
Add to my previous submission, my phone was only 4 months only when I had all those problem. Also, that 3G sucks as well. Could not even hear at all what other parties talking about even though we had the same kind of phone and model.
Got a red colour K610 but got stolen. Wouldn't buy the same one as replacement even though I like the slim and red model. Shut off on its own suddenly a few times. Also, when I talk to other people, they always complain that my hp is too loud and I am always shouting at them. Fact is that I couldn't hear them talking to me and on my receiving end, it is noisy. Also, when I used this phone on my left ear to listen , I couldn't hear at all and I have to use my right ear to listen even though when I still have to cover my left ear to listen intensely. I thought my left ear has problem hearing but when I had my last nokia, I can hear both ears very clearly, and now I have a second motorola, it is very clear for me for both ears. So... I am not sure if I am being unlucky to have that red k610 as one of the kind but I would not buy sony ever again....
Can you get any more than the 4 themes for this phone? Also how do you take a photo and make it cover the whole screen as a wallpaper and not the gaps at the top and bottom of screen??
Cheers in advance.
anyone know the short codes for the phone for formatting etc.? if there are any
i have a k610i since september 2006 and i han no problem works perfect i think is the best 3g phone on the market!!!!
I'm about to buy a new cell , I just want to know Which cell is louder ( sonyercisson k610 or nokia 3250)
Hmm. Have the white version of this phone for five months now. Great phone. Feels great look great & it works wonder. It never did die down on me. Not even once. Wonder why complaints of it shutting off by itself keep on popping up non stop.
Anyways. A good buy. A trustworthy companion.
Good job SE.
i like this mobile but the problem no wifi and infrared. i want to buy this phone and hopefully will not get any problem after i'll buy it.
have tried replacing the battery.. that might help... i suppose u always get an extra battery wid ur fone...
hi to all thoses that have the shuting problems on what company are your phones branded on to? ive have an o2 one for 4 months now and it perfect never shut down and ive updated it from the sony ericsson official sit and it even better and faster than it was before i updated it
have an update to your phone software at sonyericsson website. the site provides you step by step intuitive and easy following instructions to update the phone software. by the help of updating the phone software you can fixed any annoying bugs especially the restarts and white/black blank screen of deaths which appears to be an often problem to most SEs devices. but at least this is the only problem you would encounter to SEs products other than having restartings/lags/freezes and bugs in smartphones in which are not 100% fixed in phone SW updates.
i wouldnt recommend 6288 cos the slider is not as smooth as the old version of it-6280 even after some time. it just gets rougher and it doesnt spring up like other sliders do. u'l get frustrated. but who knows u may be the lucky one??!! :) just my 2 cents worth.
wat colors are your k610s? so far i'v only seen the black and the red in singapore. the red is really cool! am thinking of getting it now. got one for my uncle and he's complaining that this phone shuts off by itself when he left it untouch in his bag. was wondering if its just on standby but he said he pressed the buttons a few times and it just doesnt turn on till he switch it off and on again. but i encounter similar situation with other sony ericsson phones esp the w810i. it just stay as black screen for quite some time while i kept punching the keypad til it turned on again. does this happen to your k610?
