I have so many good memories with this phone. It was really the phone to get back then, shame it lacked in memory slot.
Correction: Sony Ericsson d(^_^)b brand here. please read previous post
hi.... i think your not too accurate with regards to the features.. this unit has a SPEAKER PHONE.
Great phone! Bought it brand new in 2005,lost it in 2006:(
Bought another one second hand last year.In 2 months it broke down. Bought another one a few months ago,in a good shape,almost for free.Got a new battery and it works great :) I use it as a second phone,I have a K810i.Had a K800i a year ago,dropped it into a glass of cola :) All of them were great value phones when they came on the market.Newer SE are nasty,buggy menus,sensor buttons...yuck!
i have used this phone since 2005 and i loved it. im just concerned that its been discontinued, and im finding it difficult to let it go. its still workingf, i just need a new battery! i love the phone, easy to use, and for a so called old model, it still holds it own among the new brands
confusedbyu, 07 Aug 2009is ur comment about d k700 or the w850? dude u myt b in d wrong page!!! =)) Someone asked for an opinion from a K700 long time user who successfully switced recently to another phone. I switched to W810 and posted my opinion

Here in the PH it doesn't come with the package (i am not ure with other countries). Just go to a mobile shop or a SE center and ask for a USB cable that fits in the k700.

very good phone,but call sound is too low.Can I fix that somehow?THNKS
I still have this phone (since 2005, but rarely uses it now since I have K850i and Samsung Omnia i900). The only thing that's not working on this phone is the joystick. I have had the soldering inside fixed but to no avail. I don't usually ditch phones, and I think I can't even sell this model anymore so I will keep it and just make sure to take care of the batteries.
a great ph0ne. . . user friendly. . . does any b0dy here kn0w that a n0kia bld3 w0rks fine 0n this k700? i tried it and im using it till n0w. . . much better standby tym. . .

It has dropped, say, 150 times.
Never changed battery. In... moreI bought a ---W810--- as a "necessary upgrade" to my K700, but the first thing I noticed it can't display the clock in standby like k700/k750. I hate this because you can't tell if you recieved a phone call or not unless you press a button... Also, it has a similar processor speed as K700, so 2MP pictures are rendered pretty slow (3 seconds/image) and the Tracks mode in the player is very slow. A third negative thing about W810 is that when you view a SMS, to call the sender, you must press More> Call X, unlike in K700 where you naturally press down to underline the contact and call (I liked it that way). In sent sms, if you want to call the reciever, More>Details, down, Call. Unfortunately, no Java multitasking; you can't start the camera if a Java app is running.
On the good side we have an autofocus camera which produces very good results outdoors. Also, you can put a 4GB card (512MB card included in the package) and you can send/move/copy more files at once (very useful). Opera Mini works smoother than in K700. BTW, I didn't buy it for the Walkman branding, but for the SE soft and camera (and no joystick, of course :P)
If you can go over the negative stuff (my first paragraph) and buy it you won't regret.
gifted it to my brother in 2004.... so had hands on experience with it...had been using it ever since and stopped using it since it was lost...virtually undestructable...except for joystick problem.. never hung...just needed some upgradation like memory card slot....one of the best looking and performing phones ever made

It has dropped, say, 150 times.
Never changed battery. In the past I forgot to charge it for days. Now, it is drained, but OK.
Only problems :
a) joystick, but sometimes it is due to impatient, no calm, movements
b) software, a more serious one, cause sometimes it "mistakes" calls and contacts. Maybe it needs only to upgrade software.
Never examined an other option all this time.
Only now I'm thinking changing it, looks a little ruined, but I find no substitute.
I don't like Nokias, I don't pay money to Steve Jobs, I don't exactly trust Samsung/Motorolas etc.
Thinking of the T700, but comparing it with good-old K700 is roughly equal, except the 1000 contacts and the soundspeaker.
Thinking of the expected T715, but seems it is intended more for women, with its pink (bliahhh) colours.
I would wellcome an opinion from a K700 long time user who successfully switced recently to another phone.
used this phone for 2++ years, plus i bought it 2nd hand.
it served me well enough..
very durable.. i only change the joystick once..
hang/slow response only occur very occasionally..
the only drawback of this phone is it doesnt support memory card..
Adrian, 08 Jun 2009I remind those of you who have problems with the joystick that the phone can be used (mainly t... moreWell, i had the same problem with my K700i. Joystick just didn't work, which limited the use of most of the features in this excellent phone. This mostly results from the large amounts of dust that get inside. Nonetheless, this issue may be fixed, either disassembling your cell phone and cleaning it (quite dangerous for the cell phone), or using 2 of the following: compressed air cans or an electronic antistatic spray (you may find them in electronics or computer stores).
