Just got the phone. It seams to be awsome. I'm still playing with it but I am glad that it is not as big as I thought it would be.
Does anybody know the best way to transfer some of my mp3s to the phone?
as i have now had 2 d500's 1st time i was really upset with it the screen and pictures wen took in darker rooms were shocking my gx30 wiped the floor with it camera wise, yes d500 is a cool looking phone but thats its 2nd time i had 1 i thought id try again for a bit longer play about with settings etc. but same thing, i have now played with an s700 for 10 mins max and loved every minute :)
video size im on about is when i put a 3gp simpsons file onto it how big is it does it fill the screen ? and the 2 mins record i believe i read had been fixed with firmware update to 30 mins ? true or untrue ? someone who got it recent plz answer ?
like to get this phone but its somhow expensive down here if anyone wld like to sell his own pls mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Just went through some comments. Couple ofg people have talked about thier worry about the size of the video. If you talking of the pix size, when you transfer, it shouldnt be a prob, but if you're talking of the timing, then yeah, its pretty small, 2minutes i believe. Yes it does have a flash. If any of you ever carried analog cell phones back in the day, you'd know this phone is really small. Its not as big or heavy as people have posted here. Its perfectly fine for a guy. Maybe ladies would want something smaller, but its cool for a guy. certainly is nowhere near the nokia communicator i can assure you.
I have always been a sonyericsson fan. All my cell phones have been eicsson and now sonyericsson. Got an S700i recently and the phone is da bomb!! Its magic and you can do almost anything. Just one thing. I need to know how i can print the pictures i have taken. The phone is a complete digital camara, and it would be such a waste if the pictures cant be printed. Do i use the memory stick Duo? Help pleeeeeeeasssssssseeeee!!!
I might go to the o2 shop today and ask a few questions - 1) why don't they tell you (like most other online places) that the phone was out of stock before you actually bought it!? 2) how come the shops have the phone but not the online shop..are people who go to the shops worth more to o2 than us mere online buyers?!
will the vids not just be small on the phone but larger when you transfer them to pc?
Hi there i would like some help, Basically i have a Choice between a Samsung D500 and the SE 700i. I was swinging towards the D500 But now reading some reviews im not so sure. How big is the S700i when its open? Is 128mb the maximum Card you can put in it?
Which should i get?
Any views would be Helpful
Thanks in advance.
maybe depends but i was talking to an o2 shop asst. and he said they have a few probs with online customers :-/ i have rung my local store and pre-orderd :) only thing is now im abit upset coz the screen size in vids is v.small and poor picture etc. :( dunno wat to do

4)can i listern to radio or mp3 while textin etc. ?
thanks in advance
p.s also the video size problem anyone help me out with this.
played about with one in shop and billy last post is somewhat of a retraction from his last post :-/ but never mind i like the cam as i have a gx30 its better than taht and kills the d500, im pretty sure of the 14 days wait as it says on o2 online shop that please note the delivery on the s700i may take my to 14 days, so it could be less, i was abit unsure about ordering from there but 500 txts only bad thing is bill trough e-mail only :(, wish someone would reply to my post about video sizes :-/
Hello its Billy again, nice to see people slagging me off.
Like ive said before, i have had nothing but problems with my phone and nothing has been exagerated because you guys have fingers to type with and can varify whether im talking balls or not by doing a quick google search on s700i faults.
And no, my eyes arent painted on and i do know what a shit picture looks like. If any one wants to see some shit photos i have taken with the camera i will email them to you. And another thing, i got so pissed off with all the faults that i went out and bought a DSS-25 docking station for it so that i could flash the firmware myself and so far so good, no problems.
Its not like i didnt trail around Leeds for 2 hours going into various phone shops to see if they could upgrade the firmware for me because i did and i had no luck with it being such a new phone. I do have the R3K004 version now and before i was told it had one of the earlier versions.
And yes although i do slate this phone off i wouldnt however go out and buy any other phone. The closest thing to this phone would be the D500 but its got a pathetic screen and is limited to 80mb of internal memory with no possibility of upgrading it.
The s700i does indeed have many great features and that is why i have kept it regardless of all the many many faults i have had with it. I can moan about the memory in it but its big enough for so many mp3s and pictures etc. I love the facility of being able to use themes. And i love the little things like getting the persons photo on the screen when they have sent you a text message.
So yes its the features that make it stand out above the rest that keep me from throwing it against a wall and getting another phone. And you just cant fault the quality of the screen because it is excellent. I just cant get over the so called 1.3mp camera because it just isnt that.
Anyways, im sure ill be typing something else soon.
cheers for your reply mate! how sure are you about the 14 days wait?! i hope you're right! yeah i was going to ignore billy..phone looks quality! the online offers good too - im sure th 80 quid for the phone will be worth it!
i too am buying with o2 online coz 500 txts :D you can get it from shops but i will only get 100 txts but its only a 14 day wait on o2 online wait trust me i just took my d500 back for this i played with one in the shop thing a h8ted about d500 was the screen when you look at your phots very dark ok on pc but if i wanted to do that all the time i would buy a dig cam :D stick with this you won't be sorry, and ignore billy he either had/has a very early crappy model or his is faulty or he is just chatting crap
i'm buying one from o2 online, but they have none in stock..anyone have an idea how long it will take? or should i go with a d500 instead?
