this is a good phone but it would be better if it had a walkman and a better design with a few better features like viedeo call and wkan internet.
im sorry to say but this phone too has joystick problem like its predecessors.
its been 1 month of heavy usage and the joystick has started to malfunction.
and one more thing: i use in-ear with my phone and the loudness is much lower compared to walkman phones,even k750
se guys please increase the volume inear in next firmware.

Only time you would need 850MHz with T-Mobile is if you roam in an area where they have a roaming agreement with Cingular or another 850MHz carrier. T-Mobile is 1900MHz. Cingular is 850/1900Mhz.
kahrlos.com had some the of the k790i and the k800i the other day.
Hello, everyone. I have the following question: I live in El Paso, Texas and I wanted to know if anyone knew the importance of having the GSM 850 Mhz frequency. I am trying to decide whether to get the k790a or k790i. Thanks. PS. by the way, my carrier is TMOBILE
Its a nice phone with good and nice camera.
But i can tell u few bad things. -Baterry is not as durable for a camera phone, -When you plug your usb to your phone you cant call, like the w800 -shutter sounds always stays on even when its on silent -lights cant be turned on..only used as flash..
I bought this phone couple of days ago. Reaaly good phone in fact. The only problems I've faced so far:
1) Video camera quality is average
2) There's something wrong with shortcuts' memory. When you set the sortcuts as you like, after a while it gets back to default settings.
Otherwise it's a very good phone, highly recommended
can i just say one thin about the person who said sony ericssons never perform well...umm they perform spectacular...i would know seing as i have had 7....i have also had 3 motorolas and 5 nokias....i review cell phones...that is why i have had so many....and i have used each hone for at least one month....with that said...it is unture that sony ericssons dont perform well...because they do...better than motorola and nokia in my opinion...as for sony cameras...they are definitely not the greates but they are not the worst either...thank you
Does anyone know the significance of high speed memory sticks? I am guessing that Sony will come out with high speed M2 sticks soon? If you have used high speed Pro or Pro Duo please let me know if you can get the full benefits of using a high speed memory stick on a phone.
Yes, it is a cybershot 3mp digital camera (without an optical zoom though), but to make so much noice about this overpriced product is not worth, since as a cell. phone Sony rarely performs well.
In addition, Sony digital cameras aren't the greatest either. Sony was taken 3rd rating place, after Canon (1st) and Nikon (2nd) two years ago, and now in the same place with only difference that Nikon went down to 4th place and Panasonic jumped to a 2nd with its very effective innovations in a digital camera world in the last two years.
If you want and advenced and pocket sized dig camera better spend money on New CANON SD800 IS and PANASONIC FX50 ( two new amazing cameras) with Canon finaly puted Image Stabilization and normal resolution screan.
Sony Cybershot k790/800 price should be no more than $300 (not $400). There is no more 3mp cameras being sold , but even the 4mp by kodak costs only $90 and 5mp $130 ( with more camera features than Sony k790 phone has).

Is K800, the 3G version, is available in India? The dealers here are familiar with K790i but not with K800. I also want to know whether K790i has 'Document Viewer'. Can K790i be made to work with Symbian OS? Please answer soon.
It's true if we say this phone is 'Hero' phone in all available imaging phones
no 3G lho...
so don't buy it, K800 has a 3G
even though k790 is cheaper.
i warning you, because nowadays we use 3G so much...
be aware guys. open always gsmarena to get the newest info

I've had this phone for 6 months now. AMAZING. just had a baby, and posted all of the pics on my blog, directly from my phone and kept family updated realtime! I have a W810,W950,P910, all great phones, but the K790 is my favorite!
