This is the worst phone I've ever had - got it as an upgrade about a month ago (vodafone), still cannot receive or send photo messages, but it tries to send muliples of them, and even though they cannot be downloaded, I'm still getting charged for all these muliples - so my bill has gone from £40 per month to £115!! The phone is crap and so is Vodafone!!
To cellshaq,u think u'll wait for few mins for the ringtone to play the entire of ur favv song?o.0"" anyway,mp3 can be set as ringtone ya
Quote "1. The cam is worse than 6230's cam."
What are you on about?
How is the 6230 camera better than K700i. Please explain.
guys i want to buy this phone is it worth the ammount of money how is compared to the n6230?hows the zoom and can u use the mp3 as ringtones is it the full lenght mp3!!!
yea, those OTHER brand users, please go back to your own reviews, please don't make or giving bad informations to SE new users, you guys are just jealous, other than this, what else? why are you guys here to complain? people here are giving comments and taking notes, not talking bad things, those guys are really childish i can say.
pls go to a mobile-phone shop and really hav a touch on both N6230 & K700i. yea, i've heard ppl/ users complaining bout k700i's battery life, but i can for sure it would not be like some of the reviews u read, think back, if k700i is really tat bad, wud SE just bring it out to de market to spoil their own name?
i just think tat... ppl who r giving bad images on SE r some other phone brand users, how come they r here to talk so much rubbish?
& for those who r using network like ORANGE or VODAFONE tat r facing problems, pls go back to ur service provider to question bout the problems, cos, with the network im using in m'sia, there r no problem with my service, & im very happy with it, it has no no problem with sms/mms sending & receiving, no prob with phone books, no prob with my camera, the picture quality is much better than my friend's N6230... & somemore, my k700i has 41mb while de N6230 has 6mb(on phone) + 32mb(mmc card), so, its ONLY 38mb!!! pls think, if ur changing de mmc card, U NEED TO BUY AGAIN, U NO??? it means EXTRA MONEY!!! so, will it be cheaper than k700i while u r expanding the memory size? and isit really tat better as some blokia users said? my god... how come they didnt think bout tat? if they really hav so much money to buy a EXTRA mmc card, better that they buy a N7610 already, y r they taking 6230???

Hi SE users,
See how nokia kids are posting their comments here? I seriously wonder when are they growing up. I used to be a loyal nokia user. I seriously don't think nokia is such a good phone as u people said. My N6610's LED broke down twice within a year. My cousin's 6610 keypad is not functioning just few week after purchase. My girlfriends's 7250 not vibrating. Much more problem from nokias from people around me. When sending my nokia for servicing, i'm having a long queue there, what does that shows? This is my first SE phone, i've never regret changing from NO-kia to SE.
it's stupid to buy a 6230 just because of expandable memory. 41mb is more than enough for me as far as 3 mths of usage. Why do u need so much memory for?
went and compared this to the 6230...it beats it by miles in every other aspect other than expandable memory
And please if uknown stop posting such long comments. It is making hard to read forum.
You can find strap hole close to the battery, should open phone though.
about the camera shutter , i think its better off that i cant be mute . this is because others will know that your taking their picture and they have a right to know...its all about mutual respect . they should make it mandatory on all phones with camera to aviod invasion of privacy
hii have k700 i and i love it.i also own nokia7610 that is a gr8mobile too.
can any tell me a site to download ultramp3 or mp3 go for my cellphone
jus 2 remind you se users, herEs all the crap revieWs that people who own the phone have given it. SAD SAD SAD SAS SAD SE USERS!!!!!!!!!!! at least nokia arnt as SLOW SLOW SLOW SLOW as sony ericsson phone.
"TOO MANY BUGS!! 1. Hangs once in a while for no reason, even just charging overnight (got to remove battery to reboot)
2. Does not connect well with PDAs, especially Palm OS ones
3. Firmware upgrade to R2L001 (in Singapore) disables the ability to mute camera shutter
4. Many missing links in software functionality (e.g. cannot delete contacts from groups properly (fixed in R2L), cannot use SMS templates when replying to SMS, cannot edit contact positions in SIM, etc...)
5. Contact info disappearing (name remains but number disappears for some contacts)
6. Bluetooth connection is very flaky when sending (better when receiving), especially with non-phones like PDAs and computers with Bluetooh dongles
7. Phone balance is slightly top-heavy (this may be subjective for me) as I SMS a lot and feel the phone may be tipping over sometimes
8. But I really like what it promises. If only Sony Ericsson would get its act together and:
a) Fix these bugs and feature gaps
b) Not discriminate between Asian and European users regarding the inability to mute the camera shutter functions (try taking pictures during meetings or briefings and see the look you get if you take more than a few)"
"Got the phone for two months. Recently got this address book problem where the saved number for a contact just went blank. Wanted to reply, the reply has to be in the form of an email from which I have to set up an email acct to do so. The software that comes with the phone is hardly useful at all (i.e. cannot compose SMS messages on my laptop and send via IR. Cannot download pics from phone to laptop, failure to ID my phone and so on... I feel the software is highly buggy, but phone build is exceptional, better than Nokia's plasticky feel."
"The selling point of this phone is the design. It definitely wins the 7610 anytime. But the software sucks big time. It lags and the camara is lousy. What's the point of having all the fanciful functions to play MP3 when you can't even expand the memory? This is crazy. Anyway I dumped my T610 and K700i for the N7610."
"Poor organizer apps. Notes app offers only 10, YES, 10 notes. The calendar has no anniversary dates. I miss that a lot from my old Nokia. The camera does not stand up to marketing promises. Picture quality in low light is very poor. The light on the camera side is not flashlight. It must be manually turned on before taking picture in low light. (Could be a saver at Hekla after sunset.) But still poor quality of pictures."
"K700i is a good phone. But it can't win against its rival 6230. 1. The cam is worse than 6230's cam. 2. It has no expansion slot, so MP3 becomes useless. You have only memory for about seven to eight MP3s and only if you use THE WHOLE memory. 3. It has no Highspeed Circuit Switched Data (HSCSD) and other functions that the 6230 provides. Summary: The K700, indeed, has a better screen and some playful features like equalizer and themes. From the design I think the phone aims at teenage customers. If you're searching for a good phone, better take the 6230. It's better and cheaper!!!"
"This phone is truly sluggish. In terms of total overall usability, Nokia still comes up tops. Too bad Nokia still thinks it can get away with things like releasing new phones with 65k color when other people are moving onto 262k"
"This is not a good buy."
"My phone connot receive SMS after a R2L firmware upgrade. It always prompts: "Too many messages. Delete some from any folder." I've check all the folders and there are zero items. I sent back to the service center, and they told me the phone software is corrupted and they need to change the whole mainboard. Oh my God"
"I looked at M1's offer today and I was like, cool, I'm gonna get this phone, but when I tried my friend's K700i, I noticed the address book and personal info were nowhere near the N7650's features. I wonder what's with the lousy phonebook feature on SE. It's an ultimate letdown. For those getting a new phone, please make sure you check the phonebook feature before anything else. I am giving a pass on this phone."
"Since the Nokia 6230 has expandable memory, what can SE do?"
