Is this a Plug-n-play phone like the Walkwan series? Can the phone be used with any computer without the software installed?
Stupid question...I can't figure how to install my memory stick. The MS port cover looks simple enough to open but it fights, no matter how I try to pry, peel, push etc it just won't open. Anyone know how to open this or of any instructions online...the included Sony Ericsson paperwork is useless. heeeelp anyone. Thanks in advance, the pathetic guy
Great site for ringtunes and image files for k790 http://www.myk790.lasyk.net/
to change FM: just press zoom in or zoom out button for 3-4 seconds.
Please tell me how to change chanels of FM Radio while using earphones and key pad is locked
hey, does this phone come with a built in FM radio tuner? I cant seem to find any stats on this phone.
so far, weighing pros and cons, this is a very decent phone for the 3 yr contract price.
if it has a fm radio tuner, i think i can live with slightly lower quality audio than the W series but have a better camera at 3.2
also the xenon makes a difference, but not so much as the auto focus. carl zeiss lens or not, auto focus is important on these lower quality cell/camera combos
I have K790i, and i m not able to view mpeg or wmv files. should i need to install some software for that, if yes then from where i can download that software.
you must understand the when moment SE has been established, the branding of the i,c, and a has been implemented to their first phones since t68 and P800. nokia on the other hand, has been producing mass phones with only one two version i think: CDMA and the European version(international like in SE).
Amazing phone. For all the obvious reasons. Exchanged my N73 for this. Only problem that i am experiencing is that the ear piece volume is very low. When in traffic i can hardly hear . Any way this problem can be resolved.
what i dont understand is. Sony Ericsson could've made the K790 i,C,& A models with Quadband. But ofcourse they need to make deals and more money with Wireless Companies. so they send out different models for different CONTINENTS. Good Strategy. But not so good for Buyers who want a QuadBand 3.2Megapixel Phone. Just like How NOKIA Has the N73.
Just wanted to know whethere standard headphones( supplied with w550i) can be used with K790i or not?
I just got the phone and so far it is great. Only thing that sucks is I can't find any free ringtones that will work on it. Does anyone know what I can do about this. Please email me. Thanks in advance:)
I am currently in USA but I am from India. I am planning on buying the K790 but i am confused if i should buy the american version K790a or international version K790i or just buy K800. I have a cingular connection here which works on 850/1900 but i don't know what AIRTEL frequency is back in india. Can anyone tell me what i should buy ??
Aslm o alkuim to all muslim i
don't know what to bye.......or n73 or k790,i like making pictures and listening music,i could say that both are almost the same at this categories.my cousin had a n73 and he told me that n73 it works hard with that simbian style :( sometimes it blocks and sometimes it reacts in a few seconds,for example : if he push the menu button you have to wait a second,it doesnt reactes like usualy phones.you might say that 1 second it isn't much,but because we are used to phones that reacte at the same time when you press the botton it makes you to hate that simbian style.thats what i know of n73 from my cheacking.
k790 i didnt tryed yet so i dont have much to say about it.i think that i will borough it to see how it works.i hope that it works fasster than n73
now please tell me about wich cell better for me
I upgraded my firmware yesterday via mobile update feature. My new firmware is R1JC002... Im not aware of all fixes yet but the video preview is working great now.. Someone please find out other fixes.Thanks
I bought this handset last week, it has been awsome so far. Excellent camera quality and excellent camera functions. It has a brilliant screen and an excelent keypad. Before buying this I thought may be it will have an uncomfortable keypad, but its totally opposite, it has been designed very well. Camera Flashh serves its purpose very well, but cant rely on it if you want to shoot a subject which is a bit far, e.g. beyong 4 - 5 feet.
As far as the music player is concerned, it is far better than I expected, however, one thing that SE should have enabled which is present in W series is to control music player when the keypad is locked. I cant fastforward the songs without taking out the phone out of my pocket, unclocking it and bringing the media player in focus. The only functions I can perform with locked keypad are volume, and skiping to next/previous tracks and stoping the playback. But I have to unlock the phone to start the media player. But sound quality is very close to my Brother's W810. It is much much better in looks and functions than W810. Very well finished and strongly packaged handset. Very happy with the purchase.
Please let meknow if someone knows how to perform fastforward/rewind with leypad locked.
The feature I liked the most is it is very easy to use it is a USB Mass Storage device. Plug in to any computer (XP/2000/2003 or later) and it will detect it without asking for drivers. Top two buttons are dedicated for camera functionality. Pressing the right button takes you directly to camera album. Left button takes you to the last viewd picture in your camera album.
Shortcuts are very well managed. Joystick shortcuts are completely customizable and work very well. Joystick has been improved and in the latest firmware, no issues.
Battery time is excelent. I think it is much better than my brother's W810.
I hope this review is helpful.
