Talk about cheap, i bought this phone for $419.00 at www.myworldphone.com 100% brand new and unlocked, plemix have the K790i for $409 < US Dollars of course
Cheap materials, unreliable joystick, FW problems even in the most common situations... No thanks!!! Nokia or Samsung are sure bets
any body else having problems with the phone crashing???
The phone is great, and the camera is amazing, im just wondering wether it is a one off fault or happens on all the handsets.
Oh ya btw in Singapore, $518 2yrs plan includes 256mb m2 card cool rite? Singapore's promotion is hell ya GREAT! I simply love the timing and everything I so happy now..
Hey guys... this phone is just great... but i think i noticed a bug... (i think)
The key sounds (click or tone) when u put ur phone in silent mode or dont use it for about a couple of hours, when u try to use ur phone ( or turn on the key sounds) theres nothin... even when u try to deactivate it, and reactivate it again... the onlyw ay to turn it back on is to restart the phone... Hope it'll be corrected in the coming firmware updates...
Dont get me wrong... I ultmately like the phone... thats why im bringing this up so that some people can correct it...
Another thing... I didnt realize that it can also play WMA, which means, smaller music files... So the expansion card not being included in the phone is okay.. because u can put at least 40+ songs on the internal mem. hehe...
Sony Ericsson W42S
Hey is this new?
Thanx alot dude.. ya really had hard time to open the casing dah.. anyway overall this phone I would give 9/10 the 1/10 is due to the casing and the screen which can c ur fingerprints ezily.
Simply love my 1st SE phone.. after 2yrs of waitin for my perfect phone muahaha.. cant wait to use it after the last 1hr 20mins of charging!! ^.^
had this phone for 3 weeks now i loved the k750i so this updated phone didnt dissapoint either. 1 downfall is sony decided it would sell without a memory card which is m2 and have to buy them seperatly appart from that its a great phone
Hi SE Supporter =)
you can lock the keypad by pressing asterisks (*) key then the Menu key.
about the flash, there's no option to keep it on. I think because its a Xenon flash and not a regular LED light.
about the baterry cover, im having a hard time opening it too. Ive read one post here suggesting to push tor apply pressure near the part where the SE logo is, instead of applying pressure right below the camera lens cover. its still a bit hard to open the cover but it gives you more chance to open it. =)
Hi Dave =)
You need to go to Contacts to edit a certain entry and set specific tone to specific caller so you can identify who's calling...
...if that's what you mean.
i have heard that it has a joystik problem,and it manifests quickly....is this true...i have this phone and i think it has the same joystik as the k750,and a special membrane to protect the joytik from dust,which causes this problem
hey i heard that 1st time charging 6hrs subsequent 1hr overcharge = low battery life..
hi could anyone confirm wether the have had any issues with this handset, the games have been crashing and i have to charge every night whereas i know people whos battery lasts a lot longer. thanks

pls can somebody help me out, i got worked as d phone uses the default ringtone(set in profiles) for everbody.So now i cant differenciate my calls from tone, need your input fast.... thanks a lot.Tried resetting them,turning phone off and on already. see ya
Btw.. this phone is sold at an UNUSUALLY cheap price seriously cheap.
A year ago during Singapore's National Day (SND) period w800i costs around $638 SGD.. and a year later k800i is like freaking $518.. luckily I didnt buy the w800i haha..
Anyway k800i is seriously cheap.. dont know y.. starhub sold it at $588 2yrs plan, m1 @ $568 2yrs plan and for singtel its even wired from $559 2yrs plan drop till $518 for SND period.. Anyway this phone simply rox just that the battery casing is just too difficult to push open and how do I lock the keypad.. Is there anyway to make the flash/torch to keep lighting all the way?
Finally bought my phone TODAY!! Woo Hoo!! Anyway K800I ROX!! The joystick is gd camera is definitely clear.. btw can i lock the keypad and also is there a function like k700i whereby u can on the torch or light?
1 bad thing about it is that the battery casing hard to open.. hell.. close it cant open in lol..
I've had this phone a few weeks now. So far, i like it! The camera is great, its got mp3 player buttons on the side for quick use, and a very nice display. Its good bluetooth and full internet, and O2 do a very good deal at the moment where you get the phone free on any tariff. Sony Ericsson seem to have fixed the problem with the joystick sticking due to dust, and its very user friendly, responding quickly to button presses and such. Its only real letdown is the poor video quality (qcif) which makes redundent the advertised features like steadycam mode. It plays other videos in higher quality, and to be honest, the phone is advertised as the next step towards a proper digicam in a phone, not a videocamera/phone. the only other thing is the camera cover and screen tend to attract fingerprints and smears, to keep a cloth handy! Despite these two problems, the k800i is a very good phone and if your buying with the camera in mind rather than the video, you cant go wrong (especially with the xenon flash). User rating 8.5/10, peace out :)
