Hi! I have this phone since september 2005 and all I can say, that it was a great decision to buy it. High quality display, classic shape, high quality finish and details (e.g. brushed aluminium on the back cover, silver rim around speaker, display and lens) and many features (Radio, Music player etc.). It has only one disadvantage for me...lack of Memory Stick is inexcusable (in other hand, its 41MB internal memory is still more than enough for an ordinary user)and that is the reason why now I'm going to buy its successor K750. But I still recommend this phone for everyone who is looking for high quality phone for a reasonable price and who don't need so much memory to keep mp3 files or other files.
The phone is excelent...but the analog gives me problems and the batrey is not goo..otherwise...its a perfect phone
i just bought a K700i and its doing great
only problem is that it keeps turning itself off at different intervals,as in u get the works,the turn off tone,the graphics,just as if it has been put off officially.
Does anyone have any idea about this?is it some kind of timer?or do i just need to flash the phone?
my father use this phone now..he said this phone is really great..i want to buy one..thats all...
personally it is one of the first cheaper selling mobile i've known, it deserves many options tt other well known do not have. so i recommend the world to try it, you won't be deceive..
I've been using the SE K700i since 2004 and its been the best phone i've used and i wont ever sell it. Am planning to buy the SE P1 as soon as its available here in Mauritius. The K700i is a hardcore phone ( I dropped it lots and lots and lots of times but its still perfect, except fot the casing)...so if u're going to buy a new SE K700i, it's better u buy it along with all its equipment...data cable or bluetooth stuff, a spare original casing, a spare of the original ear sets (which is really good), a spare battery and finally, just in case, a spare charger...And if u going to buy all these stuff in 1 go, u will never regret it, trust me...SE FAN 4EVER
kimi, I think it's safe to say you don't have to worry about the messages. to give you a number, i'd say it could store around 150 sms on phone +40 sms on sim; storage for mms i guess that it's limited to the phone's free memory (i had never recieved more than 80 mms lifetime :-) )
This phone is good, the performance is fabulous and the reliabilty is great! The "only" problem is the only 41mb memory, if it could take a memory card it would've been an even better phone. Overall 7/10.
Nice Phone with 42 Mb, but small memory for Mp3 songs. Much better if expandable memory. The thing i dont also is no speaker phone. and like others dont like also is the joystik sometime it dosn't response especially the down key. Great design but much better if more thin. like K610i.
A medium quality phone. 6 for design, 7 for features and performance. 42 Mb memory, but no memory card. Is good comapring to Sony Ericsson K510 wich has 12 Mb and no memory card. VGA camera with 2/4 zoom and MP3 are quite good. The design is not so attractive comparing to Siemens S65 for example. The phone doesn't have an USB cable in the original box, but it has Infrared and Bleutooth connection and , lucky me, a Bluettoh device...
I'm using this phone for 18 months and is working good - the baterry stands for almost 4 days, but the joystick has some manevrability problems. Like any other joystick...
am using sonyericsson K700i for the last 6 months. only recently it has started doing funny. i charge and it will show its full. but then suddenly the battery shows empty again and goes off, this is after ringing. Ive tried with a new battery but its the same. Otherwise the camera, sound are excellent.
for rocky: go from the main menu to settings -> locks -> phone lock -> protection -> on. when the "enter code" screen appears just type 0000 which is the default code. after that you can change this code. the effect of this is that after every time you close your phone, when you light it back on, a "enter code" screen appears and if somebody doesn't know the code, he can't use the phone, even if another SIM is inserted.
for karen: i'm from Romania and when i bought my K700i it didn't have a USB cable in the box. i bought a bluetooth adapter and it works fine
i have it since feb 2006 &i'm impressed by all the stuff you can do with it.my opinions:1) a lot of functions for its price (even video streaming) 2) memory is toooo small for music (39 Mb) 3) my joystick went 'crazy' after only 3 months :( 4) sound quality- very good(especialy in headphones) 5) a battery toooo weak to deal with all i wanted to do with it 6) it would have been the BEST buy if it wasn't for its joystick, which must work,or else...
