I remind those of you who have problems with the joystick that the phone can be used (mainly the basic stuff, plus some advanced ones) without the joystick.
If you have a bluetooth adapter, you can fully control the phone from the PC.

I have had my k700i for like 5 years now since they came out ... I thrashed and abused it. it all these years it hung once, had to change the joystick once and got one new battery, thats it. virtually unbreakable still fast and easy to use ... will buy SE from now on because of this fone.
i've had this phone since august 2005 and i've been a huge fan of sony ericcson since then.. great sound quality very easy to use even the camera is good for a vga phone.. i have used a lot of phone and sold them already this is the only one i'm keeping and i'm still using it up to now.

In fact, if you have a Bluetooth USB adapter you can fully use your phone by controling it from the PC. More info on http://forums.se-nse.net/index.php?showtopic=39877

For all the K700 users out there that have their joystick "out of order" they should know that EVEN WITHOUT it, you can use the keybord and you can:
- make a phone call to anyone in the phone book
- send SMS to anyone
- add a new contact
- use either the camera or the video camera, depending with which they got stuck before the joystick broke down
- play the first game in the list :P
- listen to the radio
- use mementos - tasks and calendar
- view or delete photos and videos taken by camera
*and if you have bluetooth usb adapter, than you can
- add/replace contacts or backup the whole phone book to PC
- save the SMS to the PC or upload new to phone
- download/upload files to phone
So the phone isn't completly useless without the joystick as you can do the basics ;)

If you have a cable then install the usb drivers, if you use a bluetooth adapter then install the software and drivers that came with it.
I recommend the bluetooth solution because it's very cheap, the transfer speed is considerably higher than the cable and you can use the phone as a wireless remote control for the PC (range

This was my first ever colour screen phone!! I am actually sad that is doesn't work anymore. It has fallen accidentally out of my hands and now the screen is cracked. Otherwise it would have still worked. Finding another screen is impossible and due to the phone being declared to be discontinued, I can't find it anywhere. This was the best phone I ever owned. I still have it. If there is anyone out there who thinks of throwing away their old K700i, can't you please post it to me or something, as I would really like to fix mine. My email address is: email@example.com to make arrangements. Thanks!
