Got this phone for Christmas. It's definitely a good buy from where I come from, considering that I got the retail version. My firmware is the latest official one, R2AY004, and has the continuous restart bug. I got it activated by running a Siemens java game on it at the beginning of this year. After one week I fixed the problem by doing software flashing. What you need is a service cable, and not a data cable. You can modify the data cable (buy a cheap chinese one for this) for this, and there are a few tutorials for doing it. All you need is a wire stripper, some paper, solder and a soldering iron. I had this available at home, and modded my cable. Then you can flash your phone as much as you want (great fun; bad for your battery), unlock it, and so on. Alternatively, I could have brought my phone to a service centre. Anyway, to use this phone to its full extent, you must be patient, search forums for advice... Definitely not for some stupid Nokia user. There is so much you can do with this phone, while there is quite a lot you can't.
My phone freezed yesterday. The whole collor wiped out and i was stearing at blank white screen. It was the second time it hapenned. Once at the first charging and now again... What's hapinning?! I had to remove the battery to make it work again. :(
crap phone keeps blanking out and the joy stick keeps playing up and iv already had it fixed once but started playing up again two months later
Hi! Me again. I don't think you'll ever set an mp3 as ringtone. SORRY :(
All of you,I'm not trying to say its a bad phone. Pure opositt. Its a verry good one. But as I sayed, I cant stand the camera and the silly size of photos.
Just got it. First it was great, but i hate the camera. The baterry life is way too short and I barely use bluetooth and stuff. Oh, yeah, allmost forgot to tell- too small pictures.
this is an excellent phone. the graphics are ace and it good to use. the only flaws with it are the amount of memory and the volume but what can you expect it's well cheap for the standard of phone that nit its so it cvant be perfect. i'd recomen this phone to anyone.
well u need to buy an external bluetooth that uses a usb port for ur computer then u can also transfer using the bluetooth from phone to comp.
i was trying to record my friends voices and it didn't just get to record it.it didnt enter record mode.i had to resert the phone to factory defaulty before i could record the voices.
yes you can do phone to phone bluetooth on this phone, and with everyone's "freeze" feature it's not common, if the experts have a name for it and not a cure then it's where you bought it from that created this problem!
Hi 'jag' you're lucky that you got it replaced as you just bought it ... mine is 6 months old.
Anyone from SONY ERICSSON can help to give guidelines about how to settle this problem!!! I saved a lot to buy this phone ... and now, I'm out of nowhere. I need to get it repaired!
Nice phone, got one for Christmas:) A lot of memory and various features, definitely one of the best buys nowadays!
Hi got the same "Freeze" problem just this week. The word "Searching" was flashed on the screen and can be put off only by removing the battery. Bought the fone just last 12/29/05. I returnd it to the store and waiting for a replacement.
Hi .. that's WAS a good phone. in fact recently my fn got 'freezed' - this is the word technicians use. The problem was that as soon as I put it on, insert my PIN ... it remained showing 'SEARCHING' and the key pad stops working ... you can't even turn it off with the switch ... the only way is to remove the battery!!
Anyone of you had the same problem? Please help!
1. What about the Battery backup?
2. What is the max time for a video recording at a stretch?
3. Does the quality or std of K700 differ from country to country?
