the functions are still able to meet and in some cases, especially here in north america, exceed other cell phones. love the quality finish and attention to detail.. look at the keypad! and the large screen is great.
ive had my s700 for almost 3 years now.. bought it when it first came out and revolutionized the cell phone market.
by todays standard (in canada) it still owns most of them. still more stylish and unique. i love it.
only drawbacks is the reception since network is different. the 128mb limited expandable memory also sucks. and the 30 max txt msg for both in and out. wish it had a "switchblade"/spring-loaded swivel like the w900, v80 and couple other phones alike.
but yea the shell is literally all scratched up now and the phone likes to blackout on me and the battery is dying quicker. not to mention the phonebook is little messed up displaying different names to different contacts. still a very solid phone.
but i think its time to move on, though its hard to part with. maybe a n95....
128mb is the maximum allowed expandable storage, I used it since I first bought the S700, have watched whole movies with it using the 128mb storage, so there is no doubt that it supports up to 128mb
I luv this phone 2 bits, I've had it 4 almost 2 years and i had its software upgraded, which means no more blackouts and other problems. its only setback is the expandable memory, which sony ericsson claims its 128mb duo max. thing is I've tried the 6 different types of 128mb duo's on 3 s700i's and all dont work, but the 64mb duo work perfectly fine, which brings up da question: is the max expandable memory 64mb duo?
i have been using this phone for two and a half years now nd i have problems like turns itself off,sometimes it helds badly,battery charger point needs to be repaired after a year.Thank God we can use mp3 songs as ringtones.
my poor s700i woz wrecked in a car crash i had when my car rolled down a ditch. now i ve got a nokia 9500
i just had it for a month and i just love it!hoping that it lasts.can i slot in 1gb memory card?
please does anybody know how to get a smart movie symbian to play my dvd files in a full screen or any apllication that will help me play my vedios in full screen. Please anybody can let him help me out.i also need a website for download.
Very good phone. Better than my other phone (W550i). Better screen, better camera results. The major drawback is the Memory Duo only slot! No PRO Duos! Therefore you're stuck with 128MB max! Add another 32 phone memory, and that's all you get. Themes include an animated wallpaper. A solid product from SE. Now, if only they make another K series phone with S series LCD sizes and 16M color...
nice model , nice camera , nice pixel&big screen but why not use symbian???
i would just like to ask, can the s700 use animated wallpapers? and can it use mp3 as ringtones and message alert? i hope someone could reply regarding to my concern.
Why is it that this phone cant use mp3 sound as ringtone? I love mobile phones that can use mp3 for ringtone, Can this phone do that?
I heard that it doesn1t support memory cards bigger than 125mb is it true have anyone out there SE S700 with bigger memory card
iv had this fone for 2yrs now! still workin but its iv been droping it n stuff lately so it blacks out on me sometimes...buts its nothing too terrible. it still works! n da blakouts last 4 only 5-10seconds at the most. the only think is ofcourse, its a brick! i call it my big mama fone coz its masive. but overall, sophisticated, unique, strong fone. i wudnt recomend anyone to buy it NOW tho coz slimmer fones r in n this is 2 outdated 2 b honest.
This phone is excellent, even by todays standards! I've had it for 2 years now and the only phone i'd upgrade too is its younger, and fitter sister, the SE W900!
If only she came in silver!
As for the S700i, just read some of the opinions below, we all love her :)
my brother noel has this phone but when i ask him if it is a good phone, he wouldnt reply..... can someone tell me is it good or bad phone
I used it for 1 year. It it spoilt without any reason. Sent it for repair, no one can repair as no one can detect it's fault.
this phone was and still a legend .. waw i love it.. i wish when it was releasd to have one .. but i didnt have enough money now i have another legend from sony the great w810
