If someone want this software then inform me on my e-mail Iwill send this software to you by e-mail. My E-mail Address is
One More Thing Nokia N73 And N73 Music Edition cannot win the race between K790 And N73 And N73 Music Edition. SE is the BEST.
Does any1 know how to take out the E thing at the reception part of the screen? i think it has somethin to do with the internet thing, but iono how to take it off its been there for so long.
well no hang prob for me i am using it from 6 months
and to transfer music to fone instal "disc to phone" software from phone cd or download it from sony site
I purchased K790i today, everything works fine BUT when i switch on Bluetooth options the phone HANGS. . . . . Can anyone HELP me solve this problem
I had this phone, it is a great machine, but i have to say that i sold it because i am kinda tire of the menu, it is like every other sony ericsson model, i was kinda tire also for the functionality, besides the camera the phone was a little boring
for those who are thinking about buying this phone.....stop thinking and go ahead already.everything in dis phone is perfect.tho there are some bugs it can be easily fixed by updating your firmware.dis is da best phone!!!
I currently own a K790A and I really didn't think I could do everything I've done with the camera. It's really amazing! And for the guy that asked if it has good sound, it sounds great, I hear at AAC+ at 64kbps with the built-in headphones / hands-free and it sounds great... a little low but still sounds great.
for those who own the phone
this is one of the vest in taking pictures on the market... but how about it's audio player?
i know that SE separate camera phones from those, (say w series) but its audio quality is good?
i hope so, but can any1 confirm?
For you guys out there thinking about getting this phone: It is incredible. It is an iphone killer imho.
I'm not a "fanboy", so I'll first state the 2 major drawbacks of this phone as opposed to an Iphone:
1>The screen is smaller.
2>No touch screen.
For folks asking about what M2 sticks it will support: I have a 4 gig by Sandisk in mine right now, working great, and rumor is that the M2 format can eventually go to 32 gigs.
Picture Quality: It isn't nearly as good as my Sony s717, which is maybe 3 or 4 lbs, and maybe 6 inches long. This is the first true "Cybershot" camera combined with a phone, meaning it's always with you.
I would compare the pics to a compact/pocket digital you could snag at Walmart for maybe $150. It has a REAL flash, not an LED, and "bestpic" which takes 10 pics in fast succession, so you can save the one in which one of your subjects does not have their eyes shut, etc, and ditch the rest. It has a pretty killer camera feature set otherwise too: One feature I really like is the panoramic shot: This mode will promt you to take a left, center, and right picture of, say a beach, then automatically "stitch" all 3 together for a panoramic shot.
The audio playback is quite good IF you take the time to set up the EQ correctly.
The "stereo widening" effect is similar to a Hughes system; quite expanding, but not obtrusive.
I have seen complaints about people not being able to play videos/movies as well as they liked on this phone, and it confused me at first too. Most of them do not realize that They should go to the "entertainment center" to play a movie instead of simply clicking on the file in the folder. If you play them this way, you can back up, pause, ffwd, etc simply using the thumbstick.
Be warned though, this is the one drawback of the k790: it's screen is smaller, so if you desire to watch Jackass 2 whilst driving down the highway at 70mph, perhaps this isn't the phone for you ;) .
However I currently have a full copy of Blader Runner Directors cut, a dozen or so music videos, and approx 1000 mp3's on my 4g Sandisk M2 stick atm, which I got on ebay for about $75, and it's maybe 3/4 full.
If you decide to get one (or many other phones for that matter), There is a pretty cool freeware prog I found called "Miksoft Mobile Media Converter", that will take most full sized versons of videos, and crunch them down to a size appropriate for your phone. If anyone finds another freebie that does the same thing, please post!
Awesome phone, I would recommend one highly, especially considering that the M2 card format is already at 4 Gigs, and possibly can go to 32...
tharsa common falut espesely on the w850i wen u turn them off they dont turn back on
hi my phone doesnt turn on anymore i had it turned off and then i tried to turn it on and it wont turn on and the bateery is full.
i have had my phone for 3 weeks. it was the best phone i'd had before today. after my friend used my phone he said he held down the cancel button instead of end a call at which time the screen went blank with the led still illuminated. the phone no longer has any functions exept a lit led screen. help!!
i just purchased the k790 and after playing
around with it i noticed the joystick would not work when you moved it to the right and down, the 2,3,8,9 buttons don't work and the camera does not work either...so i returned it for another one, when i got this one all set up the same problem happened. Has this happened to anyone?
There are software problems in this model henceforth getting discontinued
I'm also getting "Operation failed" on K790i when I try to goto the Games or application.
It was working properly for 5 months since I got the phone. I dont know what could be the problem.
