well i have now owned this phone for longer than 3 months and i have found no problems needing to update my software every month, and like a previous reviewer, if i try to update my software it says that my phone already has the latest software. Sounds to me that you have a faulty handset, and like practically all products yet alone phones there will always be some that are faulty, so the person or anyone who says not to buy this phone just because their phone is faulty is really saying an unfair comment! My k800i has a very small fault (it will no longer open the games or applications folder), but i live with it because i never really played games anyway, but i would still recommend this phone as its brilliant! On a different subject, wenether you are updating your phone software using the SE update service, make sure you do FULLY CHARGE THE PHONE BATTERY FIRST as it tells you before you do the update, my mate ignored this and after he updated it, got this "white screen of death" that has been mentioned on this site before (phone will no longer start as there wasnt enough power in the battery to update the software therefore the new software wasnt installed and therefore will no longer start)!
So can the K800i handle a 2GB M2 card??? I know it can use the 1GB with ease, but I had a T-Mobile Samsung t629 with a MicroSD Slot, and I used a 1GB SD, but the phone refused to play any MP3 that was over 5.5MB in size. I called Samsung and they told me the SD card was too big, and I had to switch to a 512MB (B.S.!!!). I just hope that that isn't the case with a 2GB M2 card in the K800i.
i've only used the software update once because according to SE update service i have the latest software., it's been 3 months since i've updated it., no problem with the memory because i'm using 2gb of memory and i've asked the Sony ericsson service center and they told me that it can hold up to 4gb of memory., it is quite faster that my n73me., and does not hang and very stable unlike my n73., the xenon flash is also great., but the video is a disappointment., the sound also., i really love the sound of my n73me because about 1/2 of the n73 volume is like the full volume of k800i
SE rocks.. i hate the design at the first time, then i like it. I use it as a phone, camera, notes, calendar, sms, music player, video player, vid clips creator, radio, english dictionary--the oxford one-full version--save me the burden of opening thousands of pages.
This Mobile phone is a complete disapointment at first i was impress but after 3 months the program needs a constant upgrade that really gets on to my nerves sony ericsson needs to improve their programs inside their mobile phones the k800i units are also unreliable needs a big storage memory and it also needs a monthly software upgrade. I TELL TO ALL THE PEOPLE WHO WANTS TO BUT THIS UNIT BETTER NOT SPEND UR MONEY ON A WORTHLESS UNIT!!!!!!
I'v got this phone i think it very good the 3.2 megapixel camera is spot on check out www.myspace.com/deviousmc For information on cheap simcards with free weekend minutes & texts.
to swed ,,,i always use the headset wen video calling thats how its always been for me in a fairlynoisy enviroment,,great fone as its one of the easiest ive used with clear screen super battery compared to nokia ,,samsung,,responsive and so on,,but i suppose one slight negative is screen could be bit bigger but at least its 240 x 320 so its non grainy
what is the default password to restore factory settings for this phone? pls reply!! thanx
erm thanks for the reply . self-take as in.. you look at yourself , then snap! :D
you can choose bet standard or maximize., maximize will occupy the whole screen if you use the picture as wallpaper
Will pictures take up the entire background if used as wallpaper? or just center the pic?
does anyone know how to restore factory settings for this phone? and is there a need for the password? if so, what is the default password?
...piece of advice to those who really have this phone,,,(coz they'll just be the ones to get this),,,to avoid errors on the joystick never use it in taking pictures,just use the camera button on the side,,,and as much as possible avoid using the joystick if given the chance to avoid using/pressing it (in pressing ok or select just use the upper left button which indicates ok or select/in the menu just press the number that indicates the part of the menu either messaging,music player etc..for example,by pressing number 6 right after pressing the menu or when you are in the menu grid you will be able to activate the music player)...and by the way,if given the chance,try cleaning your joystick by using cotton buds,,,that's all...take care of this very wonderful phone...
...yes,mp3 can be used both as a caller and a message tone...so as midi,and wav...
..yap...it can also play mp3 and radio at the same time your browsing or plying a game or
