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...
ilike this phone, except for the joystick and its battery, which starts warming after 5-6 songs(if play on mp3)
its mp3 quality is very good.good features
pls tell me how i can lock my phone.?when i will use my ph i,ve to enter the code is there any option like this?

I'm using is k700i.
My comment is about changing my t.mobile so that it can be using celtel when accessing
the internet.I live in Zambia and i have been
to celtel offices where my number is but,they cant help me in anyway.
How can the settings be changed?
Good phone, Great memory and good camera - music player is good too. Only downside is that the joystick sometimes plays up and the battery is a bit short, you have to charge it every night.
hi . . anybody knows how to use k700i speaker phone ? i can't use it, please let me know, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org tnx.
Just recently some weird things have started happening to my Sony Ericsson K700i. It's really annoying (and load-consuming, at that!)--it keeps on sending blank SMS to my dad, and then later on to my cousin. I can't say it's a defect with my SIM card, either, because I've already used two cards but regardless of what SIM you put in it the phone itself still continues to send blank messages. Although I once connected it to our laptop (which had the Rontokbro virus at that time), it hasn't even shown any signs of such virus manifestation; but my hunch is that maybe an unseen bug could be the reason of this unusual anomaly. I really hate it. Just this morning I lost fourteen precious bucks because of this stupid problem. I don't know if it's just sick or maybe it's grown a mind of its own. If that is the case, then maybe another mean thing this rebel's planning to do is humiliate me. My classmates always laugh at me because I got this (nice) phone with so many games (16 of them, indeed!) and yet whenever we sit down to play them the phone always spoils the fun by turning off even though the batt level is full, no matter what kind of battery you use on it. It's horrible. Anyhow, I just wanna advise you guys--if you got a K700, please--keep it away from viruses. And you know what to tell your other friends about it.
