yeah depends on much you actually use the phone. for eg it has 360 hours standby time and 7 hours talk time. so roughly for every hour you talk you loose 50 hours stand by time.
3 faults: a) battery performance is shocking b) voicedial is dreadful as the window it allows for recording a voice label is too short, so it keeps mishearing your intended recipients name c) screen is great, but camera does not live up to it, if you send a picture to the phone from your PC, one which you took with w proper camera, it looks great, but the picture quality from the built in camera is awful. Anyway, going back to the first item, what is the point 20 years into cellular telephony in designing a fab looking phone with a battery that just about makes it through one day! Awful.
This phone is like the t68i. Looks nice, lots of features, but is missing important CORE functionality that phones should do. When is Sony Ericsson going to get their act together? In my opinion they are the pinnacle of actual DESIGN as far as look/feel, but the quality of their phones is severely disappointing. Get your act together. To the people who are writing good reviews, given a few weeks, or maybe even months, i can guarantee you will not be happy with this phone. My bet is you already know that it has some fundamental problems, but you're blinded by the gimmicks, and trying to ignore the flaws. Very bad phone.
wow...finally.."QD" is gone...actually,...bth phones have their dis and advantages...but for me k700i is still the best..
Sledge, it's right taht many people do complain about the battery life of this phone however you got to be honest what do you use it for? You can't use the camera 24.7, listen to mp3's, the radio and play games, talk for hours and transfer things and expect the phone to still last for ages, you got to be fear on the phone, because it wasn't deseign to last forever, no phones are, its just some last longer.
As for Nakata, this pohne those have a modem, it can help you access the internet; GSM internet dial up support.
Im not sure about faxing...i will get back to you on that one! :)

Please help !!!!!!!!!!!!

my friend has this fone its prty gud reliable but the memory is tooo low 41mb it finishes too fast !!!!!;)
does this phone have a built in modem? ie to send and received faxes.
The Sony Ericsson K700i, in my opinion is one of the best and most reliable handsets ever to be produced.
I shall now write my review and list what i think is good and bad about the mobile. This will give anyone who is thinking about buying the handset a good knowledge of what they are to expect.
* The handset looks great. I think it looks stylish, sleek and expensive. The colours blend well together and the phone feels comfortable in ones hand.
* The keypad in my opinion is great. The keys are a little small and close together which could make hardwork for those with larger fingers. Backlight is stunning and looks amazing on the phone. Personally i think it is the best thing about the handsets exterior.
* The screen quality is very good on this phone but not very bright. This is the phones major downfall although it makes up for it in detail. Colours dont look as vivid as those seen in Samsung for example and there is no option to adjust the brightness.
* The phone has EVERYTHING. Camera, video, bluetooth, infa-red, MP3 player, decent sized memory, radio etc etc. Whats more, all of these functions work brilliantly.
* The camera is very good for VGA, obviously not up to the standards of Sharp etc, but one of the best VGA's i have come across. There is a flash light, night mode, and lots of other fun camera settings such as panorama, and loads of frames.
* Video is also of decent quality, it lasts a long time and looks great on screen.
* TEXT SPEED!! Why is it no review sites anywhere comment on if the phone keeps up with you? EVERY review site i visit dont include it in the review. Sure they mention the text input METHODS but never if it keeps up with you. They seem to think Motorola texting is somewhat acceptable? Sorry but Motorola has the worst text methods ever and words never keep up with the user. Sorry to moan i know its irrelevant but THANKFULLY Sony Ericsson's texting is BRILLIANT! Fast to input, great input method and speedy - same speed as Nokia's even.
* Bluetooth. Probably the best bluetooth implementation i have seen in a phone. Reliable and easy to use.
* Great selection of ringtones and the handset also gives the ability to set MP3 files as a ringtone!
* As i mentioned before, small keypad may make trouble for users with large fingers but most people should find the keypad comforting to use. It all depends on the user.
* Thats it!
So there we have it. My review of the Sony Ericsson K700i. I feel i have touched on the most important parts of a phone review and hope this helps people in making the decision.
I recieved my K700i in January but had to sell it because i needed the money. Now i have just recieved it this morning after TOO LONG waiting for another great handset like this. Mine only cost £69.99 refurbished from o2 and it came unlocked! Dont hesitate in buying this handset, as it is STILL one of the best on the market!
