There are 2 reasons why the battery doesnt last, first of all the screen eats the battery so make sure u have the power save mode on and also if u have ur bluetooth enabled, this will also use uo the batery really quaickly.
Second, the multimedia features such as the MP3 player and radio will use up the battery much more quickly then on fones without these features
It is the best mobile that I had so far.Everything is doing great and I hope I will have it for a long time.
This phone is crap ! Service from Sonyericsson is even worst, I bought the phone last November and took it back to sony in December, phone had problems while charging, it was on and off alone plus, poor reception. Sony took it, and said to me they were going to fix it by upgrading the software and changing the charger circuit, well after ONE MONTH waiting for it, they gave me back my phone and it worked just for a day!
They said they were going to change it, so I got another phone in February!! They said it was new, BUT, it wasn´t it was a used one!
So I returned the phone back and last march I got another USED one!
sO AFTER speaking to the service manager he admited to me the phone K700i wasn´t good at all, that they were having several phones with "gremlins", but he was sorry he couldn´t give me a new one, because according to Sonyericsson in Mexic City, Sony repairs all the phones and then they sell them again! But they never tell you that those phones are remanufactered phones, and that policy is the same one in USA and in Mexico!
PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM SONYERICSSON, they are not selling you NEW PHONES.
I´ll go back to Samsung or Nokia. My two cents!
If you want more details. I have all the iinfo. in my PC.
My mails to them, their answers, repair orders, etc.etc..
i have some problems with my batery.can any1 tell me y the phone consumes so much eneregy
ID like 2 know if i can upgrade my phone memory????????????????i bought a k700 3 months ago. at first i loved the set. but now i find it to be a disappointment. the quickshare sticker at the bottom fell off, the online sticker at the side also fell off, the joystick is really giving a lot of problems. i would not recommend this set now that i have used it. it is extremely entertaining but not durable enough.
this fon is da best one.no doubts.buy it without thinking pplz.it has everything but a good memory(only 41 mb).i dont mind buying a same fon like this but only more storage . com on ericsson u can do it.yo yo.
Is there any birthday (aniversary) reminder for k700i?
I don't want to use my calendar for storing birthdays. I can't enter persons year of birth there and calendar reminds me only one year.
Come and share with us, your best SE K7ooi themes in my group:
Bought this phone 7 months ago. Surely one of the best-valued phone out there. I can't stand the problematic 'contacts'. Very troublesome for someone who is too lazy to carry around their PDA like me. This phone hangs a lot too. Especially when it's paired with a bluetooth headset.
I'm looking for a replacement and eyeing very closely to the Samsung D600. I think this will be the only decent phone, that fits into your jeans pocket, that can outplay the K700i these days.
Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't settle for any other phone other than K700i for the time being.
hi, i have a question for u. which is better from k700 and motorola v3? and how much time works the battery before recharge it? 10x
u can update firmware by going to sony ericcson website.. u need to have a sync station first b4 u can update tho.
as for battery life, i can get around 4 days if i don't play with it much.. it'll take at least 10-15 charges b4 ur battery reaches full potential
I made a big mistake. I bought an Orange branded K700 in Switzerland. Bluetooth is working badly, the menu is not the SonyEricsson usual menu (no shortcut option), and there is no way to get rid of it but to pay some hacker to change the software to the original SE. A shame. Never buy operator branded phones.
Hi, i recently (one week ago) i bought k700i. It's a really nice phone and easy to use. I have a couple of questions though. What is the endurance of your batteries guys? I charge it every second night and i must tell you that i don't really play all the time with the camera or the mp3 player. Is it going to get better soon, after some running in maybe? Which is the latest firmware? Thank you all. Bye
Sorry, it is R2AA003 . And if it is a firmware issue, how do i upgrade it?? Can i do it from sony ericsson site and if yes , how?
I have a problem with my phone while recieving phone calls. Though I have the callers name and number stored in my phone book, only the number (and not the contact name) is displayed while recieving calls. Only a few contact names are displayed and for all others the number is diaplyed and the list changes. The last added/edited contact name stays and would be displayed correctly. If i go and save the number against the contact, all the call menu(Dialled, revieved, missed) would display the names, but then another working name would change to numbers. In short there is fixed number of(for me its around 8) names that would be displayed as name and all others though in contact list would dispaly only numbers when receiving calls. I am sure that it's some setting , but it's annoying me, as I dont remmber numbers much and would like to see the caller by contact name.
u can get an English language manual from www.songericsson.com .
the best way to convert mp3 to mp4 is to use winamp. It retains better quality (by ripping from cd) than from file to file
can i ask how do i convert MP3 song file to MP4 file so that i can put more songs into my SE700? issit that the phone can mplay mp4 files too?
Is there a way to upgrade the SE 700 41mb memory?
