I've had this phone for almost 2 yrs now n I think it's great. NEVER have I encountered any problems with the design, usage or functions. It's one of the greatest. The only reason I'm changing it is because I'm getting W880 or K610.
I have had a K700i for about 1 year and have found the phone gets dust inside the screen, it freezes and you have 2 take the battery out to get it going again, the toggle thing gets broken easily, sometimes my messages won't delete and its stuck on the internet lol.
Apart from that it is a great phone but im thinking of upgrading to a SE K750i - is this a good move or should I be looking at another phone?
The phone is great. But its joystick is certainly not designed to be used. After roughly 6 months the thing has failed and causes me nothing but irritation. As well the charger cable connection design is poor. After some time the locking nubs wear out and fail to hold a tight connection between the conduits. This leads to the annoyance of getting up in the morning and finding a dead battery waiting for you.
I will not buy this phone again. But when it worked it was a joy.
Great phone I've been using for 3 years and still working.The only problem : sometimes it's deleting phone numbers from phone book,only numbers not names :)
Otherwise it's very nice .I have a lot of java aplications , mid , mp3....
Had this phone for about a year and never gave
me any trouble.Till i started having trouble install or downloading Java applications.
Before i could,but now all i get is a 'invalid
application'what up with that???
What good is a phone if you can't have any
application or games.

...this model from Sony Ericsson definitely haz a problem with joystick ! ...i used mine 6 months, and BANG ! the joystick refuze to work...and it had to be repaired...and i know a lot of friendz with same problem ! ...rest of it, except the bluetooth v1(whick is slower than v1.2) this phone is great !
great phone for its price in Nairobi.though the charger plug could be improved like nokia's and motorola's to avoid breakage.the sound quality is good,just improve on mp3 channel and make it slim to avoid losing out to similar priced moto L7.anyone knows any free software downloads sites for k700??? thanks in advance
Hi, i have got this fone nd had it for about 6 month.I think this is a good fone but they are some bad point These include:
The joystick works but afta a couple of month it packs in
and my fone has stoped charging
I had mine for about 13 months but cannot recommend for sure! Had reception and joy stick problems and had to be repaired, no mobile ever gave me these faults. Doesn't charge properly, guess it's defective charger as well since i read so earlier.When I connect to hands free via bluetooth battery just drains and hardly serves my working hours. It looks nice though but I want reliability not just looks
no sorry stray thats just your phone...lol, general sony-ericsson phones are not that faulty, it is probably the way you treat yours. I've had mine for 2 years, and it is much better condition than yours, so where does ypur argument fit in?
I've still got this thing but I never use it anymore because it's so tedious. The charger fails to work properly - it will flick in and out of charging randomly because I guess there's a loose connection inside there somewhere. So you put it on to charge and then wake up the next day to realise you still have an empty battery. This coupled with the fact that the joystick has worn out after about 10 months of use is why the phone is sitting in my draw and why I reverted to my old skool nokia 3330. Plus the little rubber bit of fascia at the bottom of the phone fell off because it was stuck onto the plastic case using some kind of weak glue material. Sony Erricson sure do bring out phones with nice features for the price but their build quality tends to be quite apalling most of the time.
Wonderful phone had it since july 6,2005. My problem is the power button broke off and the phone tend to freeze at times. also has a charging problem which I now realize all sony ericssons seem to have. Mine was a gift and that It shall remain. one that i cherish. Wonderful sony.
firstly for those who are complainiig about the size of the phone, why are you complaining when you know the memory i that low? it is not a problem it is one of the phones features, why did you get it if you knew thta, secondly the battery life is so low because the screen is very powerful do not do too many things at once e.g call, then play games, then take pictures, then listen to music, sony ericssons have one of the most powerful screens in the business and thirdly the joystick is bound to break, mine took 2 years to break because I took care of it, i think those complaining should do the same...if you have any personal questions email me...p.s. if you have problems with fitting several songs, just donwload a converter like myself I can fit up to 40 songs on my phone....
I have been using the k700i for two years. Bought in January 2005 I consider it a one in a million cellphone. I does not make sense to write about the many great features this phone has, because you can read about them on the internet. Before buying it, the review on this
website helped me a lot to make my decision. However I would like to give my conclusions about this device. All the great features stated in the gsmarena-review are
as described or even better. The four main problem-issues were:
1- the poor battery-life
2- lack of memory-card
3- unstable software
4- jostick does not respond after heavy use
I could live very well with them, some of them they do not seem to be a big issue, My recommendations:
to 1: I was told to charged the phone at the beginning for about 8 hours and repeat five times the procedure every time the battery was totally empty. Actually it takes only 80-90 minutes to see the full-charged sign and with a normal phone-use it lasts for 3 or 4 days, which I consider very good, looking how great the display is.
to 2: Of course 41Mb are not too much. However in my opinion there was not a big problem to transfer files to the pc everytime I needed more memory.
to 3: As I told I bought the k700i two years ago. It is an unbranded version. To wait five months after release was the main reason not to have problems with the firmware. I assume I received a very stable one. In two years the cellphone frezzed only twice.
to 4: Using the jostick for the common functions (not gaming) and using instead the keys a lot gave the jostick a long life. It is working still perfectly.
That was my experience with the k700i. I use to change my devices every two years so I was about to buy the k800i until I saw the Nokia N95. For this reason I decided to wait until March, when Sony Ericsson will announce the new K-Series Cellphone which I hope will
beat the N95. For the moment the N95 is a masterpiece and state of the art cellphone. Exactly like the K700i two and a half years ago.
ALL K700i USER PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!
I've been using k700i for abt a year. But after I 1st got played this built-in game "tennis" the joystick started to give problem like sometime it stuck and jam there.
My 2nd problem that I encounter happened 2 months ago which is the keypad now started to give problem hang & stuck/jam, instead of alphabet the number came out. Sometime can't press anything until I've to dismantle the battery; take out the sim card and reinstalled everything back again then it is ok.
Can any of K700i user let me know what's the problem with my phone? Does you people face the same problem? Your participation is much appreciated. Thanks.
This is my 1st Sony Ericsson phone and I'm loosing confident in it, I think I might go back to Nokia.
