Reading to the previous reviews and reviews on the other websites you would be expecting this review to be in the praise and heads bow for K700i. Well! the answer is NO NO and NOT AT ALL. I had 6600 previous to K700i and when I was going to buy this I thought it to be a leap forward but I am sorry to say its a big disappointment.
What I bought this mobile for was the stereo MP3 and radio, it did give me both but snatched everything else. So the flaws:
1. Calender, being the mendatory item for organizer, yes, they do have the calender but you know what creativity they showed you can't repeat the reminder as you would like to for a TV programme.
2. Messages, I have used many of the mobiles, but hadn't deleted any messages atleast from the sent folder. I dont know what the sonyericsson thought of this plan to dedicate a memory for the sent items. You can't save more then 10 items and even you can't let them stop saving the sent item to let you iritate more.
that is not the end the camera is a bit elevated and the color you know is chrome(colour mind you), so the obvious reason being you can't let it chrome for even a month if you put the mobile on its back.
And the list goes on and On.
I went from 6600 to k700i caz of mp3 ringtone and fm and stereo audio.
So if you can bear with all these shortcommings you can.
Any feedback would be welcomed.
Matthew, how can u say that the k700i photos is better than the k500i when u don't even have prove to that.. which offical website states that.. tell me my brother..
And no, i didn't mention that the n6230i is symbian.. u are the one misunderstanding things.. and fact is n6230 is better than this fone! anytime anyday!!
And yeah u say that the fone is about 80 to 120 pound. Its cheap because stock is too much as the fone is simply pathetic..
And btw, do u get paid to give advise to ppl?? A big LOL to u!!
The thing im concern is that i dont want ppl to fall into your so-called great stories as some of them are! Pity them! Stop pretending to be experienced and making ppl feel happy with this fone.. it ain't goona work because Nokia fones is getting better and so what if "the fools domain the world" they are the winners themselves!
"Sunny" between the K700i and K508, the k700i is better, because it has more memory (K700i - 41mb ::: K508 - 12mb) the K700i has bluetooth the K508 dosen't, the K700i has a better camera and the K700i overall is better!
LOL! "medden alley" you should knock yourself out, simply because the K700i isn't £500 it never has been! The highest this phone has ever bin was around £300, and nowadays it's roughly arond £80 - £120!
"Gary" & "Serc" if your not the same person, I'll have you know that I use my K700i 24 hours a day and my battery life stays up, your jugdments come because you are jealous that thousands of people still like this phone and you cannot make them hate it!
Also in my view the K700i is better and by the way the joystick on the K700i has been modified.
It is true that I did modify my phone, but trust em it isn't hard, your making it seem as if it's a bad thing and I did say on this thing that if anyone needs help they should email me, and only a few email me so I help them that's why there are still many complaints.
Lastly I do not need to lie on here, I mean I only argue against those vein Nokia supporters (You) and your no challenge so everything I say is strictly true.
The Nokia 6230i has not got Symbian Os geatures so you stop making false statements!
how do u get mp3s onto ur fone from ur cable i just got my cable and i cant do it
fone is very good.........
wow k700i is the best fone........

i love k700
Is there any difference between k700 and k700i?
the vodafone version doesn't allow mp3 file to be used as ringtone; any ideas.
what is a syncStation required to update the software of the phone from sonyericsson website?
Does anyone have some movies taken with k700 video camera?I wanna see how they look when you watch them on the PC!
Hi all i have a major problem PLEASE HELP!!
when i brought my k700i i got a accersiory that came with the phone that means u can where the phone round your neck i thought i would try it out so i looked for the bit in which connected to the phone and the connection on the end of the phone holder fit right in to where the charger fits in and now i want to take out the phone holder thing that goes around your neck but it won't come out i have tried pulling really hard and it won't come out and i really need it out so i can charge my phone so any ideas then please email them to me thank you very!
I am deciding to buy either a k700i or a k508i.
Needed some guidance.
1. Someone told me that neither of these phones has photo-id. Is that true ?
2. Which has a better keypad ? I found the keypad of the k508 to be more comfortable for smsing.
3. Hows the battery life of both these phones.
4. Is it true that the k700 camera takes better quality pics and has longer video recording time ?
Please guide me if anyone has any knowledge on these phones.
the best phone av e'erm heard of. having all necessary functions. well i wish to have one if things goes well
I don`t understand those who says that mp3 files can`t be used as ringtones, i already have 36 mp3`s tones (20 secs at higher because now i just use it for ringtones) and all of them works perfectly!!! maybe your service provider blocked this function but ì don`t think so.
The K700 is a cool phone even tho i dont have one personally i have the updated K700i which is a alrite phone but you can get problems with it for instance 2 weeks ago i went to get my phone replaird becasue the joysitck broke off the board. but part fromt hat its a hell of a good phone
no fault comments about the phone sony ericsson k700i its has beautiful features
like its got bluetooth ,mp3player,radio,
41mb shared memory,voice dial ,very beautiful phone in the market its 500pounds
but who comment any thing false about this phone i will knock that person out of the game
good phone,get and excleent communication via bluetooth to pc but poor battery life when using the mutimedia e.g vedio and a big disadvantage cos one can,t use the mp3 downloaded from ur cds as ur ringtone but with other features it an excellent phone.
Yeah matthew yours if PERFECT!! Because u self-modified it? Good battery life? Thats because u didn't use the features that much.. Make sense man.. high quality camera at 0.3mp?? Cmon stop joking around. The better fone Nokia 6230i is 1.3mp with a memory card expansion slot that can easily transfers data to the computer.. easy to use joystick?? when its quite flimsy as ppl in this posts did mentioned it. 20 mp3?? Tell me man mp3 compressor software doesn't compress mp3 at a higher rate.. so don't tell a lie here in this posts..
hey Matthew u calling the symbian 6600 and the 6230i tht has far better features than even the 6230 which kicked this k700 in to oblivion, pretty much sums up all you know about phones. i can only pity you for missing out on so much due to your ignorance.
