Even though quite alot of people like the K700, I don't think that its very trustworthy as a great phone. I mean, the battery is so bad, and when I looked at the size in magazines it looked really big but when I saw it in real life well it was much smaller thank goodness which is good. It feel horrible too, too plasticy, and 41 mb isn't alot to store mp3s (up to 10 with no more memory to do anything) and other things. And have you noticed that Sony Ericsson's phones aren't compatible with other Nokia phones? Nokia can download more games, ringtones, graphics, etc. and don't hold a good reputation. And who cares about Quickshare? Its almost useless, and the joystick feels like its going to break and has a mind on its own. The only thing good about this game is probably 3D games. If you want an all-round great phone, go for the Nokia 6230, 6600, 6630, Samsung D500, Motorola E1000 or V3. Take my advice for it!
Over a year now I have been looking for the perfect phone for me. Last week I got my... SE K700i Before I even put on the phon, the look, the feel it was Luv.

A question for BILAL
I red your solution you gave for compressing mp3 files by using jetaudio 5.0. I found downloaded the 6.1.3 version and did not find the way to compress mp3s to a smaller size format. Can you help by and tell me how do you compress mp3.
10x a lot, you can post the expl at email@example.com
I realy like the k700 which i have but does anyone know there seems to be limit on how many games you can have on it i have 80 put anymore on any it says out of memory even though i have more than 10mg free on phone.
I bought my K700i in Greece and it was branded with the Vodafone Live Software. I could not set an mp3 as a ringtone because it was locked!!!!! They locked it so I had to use their GPRS service to download ringtones!!!! I fla
I was a great fan of SE until I bought this phone. Everything disappointed me, starting with the poor quality plastic case and ending with the battery life. The signal even if it showed full, the conversation was often interrupted. After 1 month the joystick failed ans the SE service can't repair it. The battery if reaches the half indicator means that you must charge it immediatly. The specifications are cool but the real product is as lausy as possible.
everthing about this phone is great...the only one thing is the battery can't last long ...besides that it is quite user friendly almost like a nokia phone...
i have this fone for a week now, and all i can say is WOW! this fone is the best that i've had. for the price and features alone, this fone is truly a winner. the screen has the best resolution i've seen. as for the battery life, it usually lasts for 2 days (with extensive use of the multimedia) which is ok with me since my nokia fone has the same battery life. if i have to buy another fone, it will surely be this one!
The Phone is marvelous and deserves any compliment y compare it with nokia 6600 LOL it ily records 9 secs of video but the k700i records upto 50 minutes and has more iternal memory and longer voice recording> But I have question to the users oif that phone,
I tried trasnfering MP3's and for some reason it doesn't transfer it takes about 30 mins and than just stops how can i fix the probem I am using PL-2303 USB
LoL ;) ur so funny man. well its been 1-month 4 me while using k700 so i dont know whats gona happen in the next mont but my friend if ur not satisfied with this battery as no one is :) then u can buy 110mAh battery for ur fone i know that will help so take care and bye
if i buy a new set i will buy definitly sony ericssoon k 700 cause it is tooooooo cooool.
Had dis phone for almost 2 weeks.Da moment i bought dis phone, i knew it was worth every penny.Dis phone has great features at an optimum size.It has a great camera for a VGA of course.Somehow i disagree wif wat ppl say about da battery.Dis phone could last longer than my old E365 wif heavy usage of Bluetooth,MP3 n Radio.But da best of all is its user friendly almost rivalled to Nokia phones
i have had this phone 3 months now and biggest problem is the fact that the battery could not hold a charge for more than few hours after using for 2 months it dies constantly and i am not only 1 with this fault i know 2 other people with same phone and same fault. sony said and i quote i should only use offical sony ericsson products to charge their phone well duh wot the hell did they think i was charging it with for god sake did they think i was using a set of jump leads or wot.
i am use k700i phone i think on of the best phone i like his shap and his comera rssult and unlimited movie function is very good and his ring tons very good befor his phone i am use 6600 and 6230 but i like of lot
And in my early reviews i have also posted some free sites for all the fun stuff and the most important of all the video compressor with which u can compree and convert ur 4mb video to just 3mb in (.3gp) file format. So guys what r u waiting for enjoy the great things waiting for u ;) and yea for more information and stuff feel free to contact me on my e-mail ie Bilal_leos@yahoo.com
hia GILANG well its like this if u r not satisfied with ur battery u can replace it with the 110mAh and it will solve ur battery problem so check it out buddy, and yea abt the mp3 song files well hehe u can compress ur mp3s by using a good compressor otherwise jetaudio 5.0 will help ( i have been able to compress a 5mb mp3 to 986kb) and now my cell is having almost 25 mp3 songs using upto 37mb space and 5 themes, 7games, 98pics, 1video and 68ringtones. so what else do u need cam pics? then u can delete any of ur file to make space for that but still its more than enoughso tc all and bye see u
