although this phone is discontinued i like to Post my opinion . . i used this phone for nearly a year. . the joystick broke up and there was problem with the battery status indicator . . display clarity was stunning (i think today's nokia phone's cannot produce such a high clarity display except for the high end phone's )but sadly do's not have brightness control option. i never thought vga camera could produce sharp picture's but this phone did! the biggest disadvantage was the built 41mb memory
my phone is like that but the problem is joystick and bluetooth! how can bluetooth return?
1- Bad Joystick as no alternatives to it in external buttons.as if your Joystick is damaged you can put the whole phone in the Garbage.
2- No browse for names in the phone book.
3- Too slow.
4- No Full screen in videos files.
it is pleasure to meet you but about the k700 its problem is that it has no meomery place

Had my K700i since Dec 2005 with never a prob only now the battery doesn't hold charge ie. it says its ok (display) but when ppl call it rings once then dies. Ppl think I'm turning it off when I see who is calling ha ha (not) :)
Been told theres no new batteries now its discontinued, is this true? I'd like to keep using it or rather what a waste, its in mint condition.
Anyway bought a samsung B150 for £5, yeah a fiver, its ok...
kawoon , 14 Oct 2008hello there how are you ? sir i want find the k700 software for pc but when i search that so... morei have the cd. its usually inside the box packed with the phone at the time of buying.
I remind every1 I own K700i since feb 2006. Let me try to answer to some questions since my last post.
1. @ Randy
"my question is my joystick have big problem if you want to scroll it they cannot scroll it what happen?plz answer my question."
A: You can't scroll because the soft recieves more comandes at one press and doesn't know which one to execute and does nothing. Try testing the keyboard and you'll see what I mean. From active standby screen press right,*,left,left,*,left,* and the hidden menu appears. If it doesn't appear, try again (because the joystick is imprecise and left is not left...)
2. @ sanedulpex
"i can no longer receive SMS, what's wrong with my SE K700?"
A: The phone can store max 80 SMS. If that limmit is reached, delete some or save them to your SIM which can store 40 SMS.
*Note: 1 bigger message can be equivalent to more than 1 SMS
3. @ raffy
"does k700i have a usb port and wer do i find it?"
A: No usb on K700. There are cabeles which connect the phone to the a USB on the PC, but the transfer rates are ~5KB/s. Try bluetooth adapter for PC instead->30-40KB/s and you can also control PC with phone.
4. @ Geoffrey
"Does this phone can customize message alert?"
It only has 6 predefined tones to chose from. A pitty you can't put a mp3 as message tone like in K750
5. @ hlyh
"is aac format compatible for k700i?tq!"
No. Supported files: mp3,mp4,3gp,wav(max 16 kHz),mid,amr,jpg,gif,png and jar (Java). Other files types are stored in the "Other" folder
6. @ Anonymous
"does all k700,s give problems with their joysticks?"
A: Sony Ericsson K700,K500,K300 joysticks aren't very reliable. Unlike the rest of the keys which have their metalic contacts protected with a plastic layer, the joystick doesn't because it's not possible by its design. Mabie not all K700 joysticks fail. If I use my phone heavely, it mallfunctions.

its the best phone ever!i used it for almost one year and it didn't even gave me a problem.unfortunately, it was snatched.huhu.now i am using nokia 6280 and i am planning to upgrade it to sony ericsson P990i.
All features were great and the camera is in match with any Megapixel camera phone. But the only problem is that the joystick would only last for maybe 9 months to 1 year, then it lost its sensitivity.
i've been using this K700i since 2005 and never hang never error, its the best phone i have ever had, but its too bulky many phone more slim and thin now...but still i recommended you to buy serie K rather serie W, battery last long unless you are using it for music, radio and games though
