Totally agree with Mike:
Standby battery time is always a Gimmik!
Just Spoke to Vodafone who have informed me that yes the mp3's are blocked and cannot be used as ringtones (For copyright reasons apparantly) I was advised to go onto the Sony Ericsson website and download the software for the phone which will enable this to work. The only drawback is that the whole menu system will change and Vodafone live (Which I think is excellent compared to some other networks WAP Sites) will no longer be accessible unless it gets saved as a bookmark.
Hope this helps
And none of u ignorant b*stards have said whether you find it slow or not yet!!
IS it possible to connect to the internet?
Via java that is...
Interested in getting this, so need mopre info.
I feel your dissapointed with a standby time of this phone.
I noticed that all cellular phone brands:
Nokia, Samsung, Sony, Motorola are commonly lie about the phone's standby time!
I is always 2 times shorter ( in everage)
than advertised. Talk time is pretty much accurate though.
SO PEOPLE, BE ADVISED!
Id it says 300 hr of talk time, that means in reality 150 hr! If it says 500hr , it means 250 hr!
There were only one Nokia phone that was advertised standby time without lying. That was the king of all cell. phone Nokia 6310!
Unfortunetly becaused of our low-graded microchiped society's low demand on that phone model, Nokia stopped producing it
(what a shame!).
Sure the S700i and if u don't care about the price u could wait for the K750i it's far better
Hi! I just wanted to know what the difference is between the Sony Ericsson s700 and s710? And which cell phone should I get? I need help! Should I get the Samsung d500, the Sony Ercsson s700-s710 or a Panasonic?
well, my girlfriend n i just bought da 700i. not sure if its a good phone yet but we like it. got nice pics n we really dont care if its bad cuz we didnt have to pay for it. but we need to know about da java part plz.
i had this phone for 24 hrs and during that time i rechardged the battery 3 times... makes one wonder how on earth it has a 300hr standby time....
the phone itself is not bad at all and is fully loaded with features but the only drawback is that one cannot customise the soft key buttons to suit their needs and therefore i have returned the damn thing... u buy a phone to cater for ur needs and not vice versa... if the soft keys could be changed then i wud have definately kept it but alas this wasnt the case and by the way vodafone have their live feature pre programmed and cannot be removed no matter how hard u try to remove it this is annoying especially when u want the phone to do what u want it to do...
my advice is buy a sim free phone much better
and a lot less hassle
the camera isnt brilliant either it has a strobe effect so is slow zoom isnt brilliant but the sounds are great crystal clear...compared to nokia i would say nokias are a lot more user friendly than sony phones but i guess this is personal choice
my overall advice stick to a nokia 6630 a lot better features wise and all round
i wouldnt consider another sony ericsson unless the soft keys could be customised by the user people u have been warned

How to install java games or applications into the phone using bluetooth?
If nobody can answer my question, you can take this phone and trow it into the nearest sea/river or lake.
Nokia 6230i rock
that's about the quality display, not the size of display. You should read the review part Nokia 6230i, Gsmarena talked about the quality and size of display very carefully there. Otherwise the information is right.
""about the size screen: is p910 smaller than s700/710? i'm asking that 'coz display specifications show s700: 240x320 pxls; p910: 208x320 pxls. folowing the specif. obviously s700 is bigger, but if you see the pics, p910 is bigger. what about k700? specifications show 176x220 pxls, but i played it last night in store and i comprove that the display size is 128x160 pxls (as t610/630, z600)!!! i´m not talking about the quality display, im talking about the size display. i played k500 and the display is bigger than k700, but the k500 display size specifications show 128x160 pxls!(???). what's going on? wrong informations? i really really need to know about p910 & s700/710 size displays.
does anyone know the p910,s700,k700 & k500 size screen in inches?""
Answer- the P910 screen is larger than the S700's one. P910 has larger pixles, which means less of a clear image. S700's screen size is 2.3inches.
same applies with K700 and K500. K700 has a sharper and more defined image; because it packs more pixles in less space
Hey guys what software to use to install Java Games in the phone using bluetooth.
I was planing to buy this phone for a while and I bought it. it is great phone expect when you record the screen becomes too small but it is a small detail after all the good things s700 has. Please guys dont look at the phone from outside the important thing when you guys buy a phone is features and performance. This phone might be a little big but has really good performance and features. I strongly recomendend you guys to buy this phone. The sound quality is PERFECT.
