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.
this phone is really great, i mean... i have mine since it appeared in romania and i am verry pleased of how it works. anyway now i need to get a second phone and i will surely take another sony ericsson 'cause they rock with their screens and quality of products. NO COMPLAINING. keep it go sonny ericsson u RULE:))
the k700i overall is a pretty good and straight forward phone, which offers quite alot...41mb (might not be alot but is quite good for internal memory), mp3 player (very loud and clear; to fit alot of songs download an mp3 compressor, ii can fit 30 songs) camera (the camera may not be state of the art, but in good light you can take really good pictures), bluetooth and infrared (send files for free to other phones) large and powerful screen, now that is why the battery life isnt too long, sony ericssons have really powerful screens, probably the most powerful so do not play music, games, make calls al; in a short space...also set he battery saver life on...
mussab the k700i and k750i have 2 complatly different data cables (usb)
text messages are not saved on sim cards they are saved on phones, my k700i holds 501 texts
i just wanna ask how many text menages this phone can hold and also can you put text message on different folders like the one on Nokia?
when you save messages , then they are saved on SIM card which has not much memory.
Using Bluetooth or infrared dongle may be a great option then cable.
i have k700 since 3 years, with almost no problems. I just want to ask, if someone can answer me it will be great.
The USB cable that the Phone is connectable with, is it the same as k750 USB cable ?
or there is a special cable ?
if so, can i know which cable is exactly that?
Thanks to all
and happy new year
The phone is very good, but the joystick doesn't function very well after a while... With a slot card, he would have been verry good.
I actually enjoyed and still enjoy using my Sony Ericsson. I especially like listing to music and it provides a very good sound. But currently, I'm going throught a big difficulty with the SMS. With just one message (sent, received, in draft), the phone will tell me 'Too many messages. Delete one or more'. I consider restarting it phone but I fear loosing all my personal information mainly my phonebook. Before I do it, I'll appreciate if I can have some peace of advice to fix it.
I was chargin the phone and the socket for da charger broke .
Could somone give me a tip!!!!!!!!!!!!
The toggle gets stuck very easily. Sometimes I have to take the back of, place it against the toggle and hit it so it will even move. The video quality is also very poor and the headphones easily become loose from the headphone slot.
