The other way to get info is to use Cell Information feature in your phone. For Sony Ericsson phones, go to MESSAGING->SETTINGS->AREA INFO->CELL INFORMATION->ON
if you restart your phone then it will work much faster next time. Also this software is currently at it's starting condition just like Google Earth. As more people will use it the more it will get faster and accurate.
I have Sony Ericsson K810i Cyber-shot phone. Today i downloaded new Beta soft. from Google by pointing my phone's Net-Front Browser to maps.google.com
after downloading, it took a while to load ( blue bar... ). Later it showed me "Your current location is temporarily unavailable".
I didn't closed Google Maps software. I started searching the web by typing the above generated error in Google Web Search on my PC.
Roughly in 5 or say 10 minutes when i checked my phone, I got my approximate location within 1700 metres. So It definitely works.
guleng - No prob. I used for 1month, the joystick still work fine. But when i choose the option auto save in sim, means save to both side, phone and sim, when i press save, it will lag for around 30secs for mine, don't know is it apply to all phones. You can try when you buy this phone.
K810i - 3.2MP
K850i - 5MP
K850i is worth Buying since its newer and has more Functions !
i wanna to ask some opinion from you all.. is that k810 & k850 different is only the camera?.. except nice .. got other function that worth to buy k850?
weikit - If im not mistaken, MegaBass is for Walkman phones only. Correct me if im wrong.
guleng - Who told you Camera cost RM900? I think is those salesman that you don't know? I don't know exactly how much is it, but i don't think it cost RM900. Around 4months ago NK N93 camera cost around RM700 so i'm sure SE will be this expensive. anyway, i don't think ORIGINAL set will give 1yr warranty for camera. AP set hv warranty for LCD and camera but for 1week or 1month, depends on which supplier. Camera won't all of sudden, broke down. If you really take care of your phone, it will last very long. But well, sometimes these things will happen, if you're the 1 of the million that so unlucky, suddenly broke down, you can only blame GOD. LOL~ I used for 1month, never have even a scratch. I don't use crystal case or whatever to protect my phone, but i hv a single and only pocket, for my phone. NEVER, i meant NEVER put your phone with your keys, coins or whatsoever. Leave your phone alone in a single pocket.
may i noe how to see wether the phone got megabass or not..can any1 answer me?wat use for megabass?but i noe k750i got..haha..thx u..
tom's- thanks for your advice... but i heard from salesman say that ap din waranty for camera lo;.. if spoil will cost for RM 900 lo

guleng - I'm phone salesman before too, actually AP and ORIGINAL it is a same thing. Other than warranty, there is nothing else different, and of cause the price is far more different. I advise you to purchase AP than original. If you do always go overseas, recommended that you purchase original, you always in local, purchase AP is far more enough. I bought at RM1050 around 1month ago, i think the cost of AP set is RM930 (COST, not SELLING PRICE). At last it still up to you wheater to purchase a original or AP. Im currently using AP, and it work smooth.
