This phone is crap. I think SE is going to relaunch it under some pretex. It has both hardware and software problems.
the features of this model r really tempting. but the problem is that i am used to nokia phones and am a bit confused if i shud go for it. cud anyone tell me if we can install applications [do we get free applications on the net]. if yes, cud u plz let me know the urls?
once i get this confirmed i'll buy this for sure ;)
The phone ships with a 64 MB M2 card. I'd reccomend getting a 512MB or 1GB M2 card if you want to put some music on your phone.
Here is the torch/flashlight programs that turn the red focus light into a flashlight, very handy, reposting just for the people who didn't see it before. http://torchk800.matlista.se/
Finally, it is worth mentioning again that the battery of this phone is phenomonal, as with all Sony Ericssons. The battery is a Li-Po type, and when you experience it you will be amazed out how long your phone lasts you.
@ JT: lock the phone by going into settings, select the GENERAL tab, select SECURITY, select LOCKS, and choose phone protection. This option will allow you to set a password for unlocking of the phone.
@ Tombo: The xenon flash cannot be sustained, it's just a flash. It's not designed to stay on.
@ rizzo: Want good games for free? Try Limewire. I have over 300 free games from there. Just search for "Java Games Sony Ericsson" under programs. If you want better fitting games (many will not fill your screen specifically), add in "K800" or any other model with the same screen resolution (I think "W900" is the same resolution)
@ Subhan: Price for k790 is actually pretty reasonable. Think about what you are getting, and compare the price to competitors models (see N93).
My K790 has never frozen while playing MP3s, the MP3 player is actually pretty excellent, I use it all the time.
@ Shaz: I'm not sure if you can move contacts and SMS to memory card, only SIM card. I don't see why you would want to do this anyway, contacts and SMS together never even take up more than 1 MB, which is nothing on the phone's 50MB memory.
@ Ben: Sliding camera shield is pretty discrete actually, in a pocket you can't even feel it. The size is not in fact the size of a classic gameboy, but more similar to a gameboy micro.. Maybe a little smaller. Held in hand, you will find that the phone is much smaller than it looks in pictures. And the freezing is far overrated, my k790i never freezes unless I use faulty applications not meant for my model, and evem then, it is rare. Use the phone before you trash on it.
could somebdy advise me regarding the memory card(if any) that comes standard with the phone..?? I knw the phone has 64mb internal but what abt the mem stick.... is there one included or do i have to purchase one seperately?? thanks....
i will not buy this one because it has no 3G and then it is not carl zeiss optics, vario tessar. 1 thing i wonder with all sony ericsson is why they cannot use carl zeiss optics while sony owned the carl zeiss optics if K800 has carl zeiss optics, vario tessar with optical zoom then aplicable with 3G and AV out i think N93 will loose!! Promise!!!
thanks for answering my query... i have one more thing to ask abiut the camra. is the camra of this is same like of k750i's camra i mean od we need to wait for camra to capture the image aftre pressing the button.. or it is shick proof...
and the second advantege of this phone is we can set a video ringing tone on it. isn't that amazing. it really is. their are many other advanteges like rss feed, updated t9 so on. someone ask is this phone can run office file? no it don't. it is a java phone not a pda. but it have many other features
i bought this phone 2 weeks ago. i upgraded from W550i.
i must say it is the best
it has good memory . abt 70 mb internal and it comes with a 64 mb m2 memory card.
sound is nice.
camera is really awesome. u can take really clear pictures in dark. camera cover is not much of a problem.. joy stick is fine as well...
i think u must go for it.

Hi everyone, how's it going? I think this is a beautiful and am considering picking this up within the next 2 weeks :) I'm stuck choosing between this and the w810i so I have a couple of questions that would help me decide. I would greatly appreciate it if someone can help me out please. I was wondering if there's a jack for "normal" stereo headphones and if the flash can be used like a "flashlight" (like on the w810i)? Thank you all kindly in advance, and take it easy everbody.
Dear All, is it possible that i can use memory card for the storage of sms or i beter say that how can i transfer my all sms to memory card. in simple can i convert memorry in use to memorry card.. ihope i have conveyed the qurey.... :)
The K800 has a VGA camera on the front and takes M2 style memory card. The K790 does not have a VGA camera, and im almost positive it takes Memory Stick Pro Duo. The other difference is that the K800 is a World Phone.
I hope this helps
This is a great phone, I went from a K750i to a K790a(American version). Yes it is more pricey, camera is way better, big diffirence. bigger screen, Edge really does matter, internet is way faster. The "a" version gets way better reception in US than did my K750i. Every aspect of it is just great, many cool and useful functions, it took me a lot of time and research before i bought the phone, i have no regrets at all, AWESOME phone!!!!!!!!!!!
hi guys !!!! pls i jst heard abt dis fone,nd i confirmed it dat it was a nice piece 4rm ericsson........so kip it up.
am wit one now..

This phone is great! but it doesnt show the number of the messages you have in your inbox and sent items,any suggestions on how to find out?? (besides sitting and counting them!)
No, The phone does not come with any Office suite, and hence cant display any of those files, though i have not tries doing this.
