For people who are torn between the shining silver S700i and the ONYX BLACK S710a:
Yes, the S700 and the S710 are basically the same phone: Both Tri-Band, Same Software, SAME SIZE. To the eye, the only difference would be in the color, whether you prefer black over silver or what not. Also, the S700 has an FM radio and the S710 has EDGE. HOWEVER, take into mind that these phones were made for different countries. For better reception, stick to whatever model of the phone you find at ur local mainstream Wireless Provider aka what you find at Cingular or T-Mobile, etc. This is because the phones, although both tri-band, they are compatible with different networks serving at different frequencies. The S700 works for 900/1800/1900 and the S710 works for 850/1800/1900. So as a result, the S710 in the US would be getting better reception than the S700 because it can rely on two network frequencies rather than the one that the S700i
SO if you're living in the US, you're better off with the S710a. If you're bummed about the color like I was, just look for S710 or S710a housings on eBay or some other online store!
Hey, is that a brick in your pocket or are you just happy to see me...oh wait, thats your S710 because its so HUGE!
Can i put in a Memory Stick Pro using the adapter provided with the phone package from Cingular and use it with my Sony Ericsson S710a?
Has anyone put movies from their computer(realplayer or mediaplayer) onto the phone. If so how did you do it mine didn't work. And what is a good price for memory stick duo 128.

I luv this phone but I am still looking for a good stereo headphone (preferably bluetooth) that I can use while running. Has anyone tried the Bluetake i-phone BT420ex? Is it compatible with the S710?
I was wondering how to play music off of my memory stick. I added music to it through my comp but i cant figure out how to play it through my phone.
i looked on bestbuy.com and found 2 adaptors but im not sure if either are the one that people are sayin will work to get more memory then 128Mb
is this a 3G phone? im intending to get one 3G phone but not sure which to get. any phone u can recommend?
I have a question... How long of a video can you store in a 128MB on the Sony Ericsson S710? Is it a bad or good res.? Is 128MB big?
Yes. The phone has video recording capability. My friend has the phone, and it is actually pretty good, pictures look better than the video recording though. And the phone DOES have a usb port....its right in the specs. And the max you can get is 128 MB, I saw that one company made a memory stick duo 128MB x 2=256MB. Some guy said there is an adaptor to fit duo pro sticks, but I havent seen anything like it.
i was wondering, how high of memory can be held by the phone? i was told only up to 128MB.
Im buyin the phone tomorrow and i read alot of the comments here i dont know wat to believe some people say 128mb is max and others say now theres newer pro sticks that have 256mb and i read it has no usb port so how do put songs onto the memory stick?
I had the Razor black edition and all i had was problems! Going online was slow (no edge) menus were slow ( the S710 is lightning compared to the razor) and to add on top of that ALL THE BLACK RAZORS HAVE FIRMWARE GLITCH THAT TAKES HORRIBLE PICTURES (when first taken pictures look fine but once saved gets terribly pixelated) And all i got with the motorola was a screen cleaner...great whooopie! I bought the Sony E. s710 i got headphones memory card etc. Well the moral is that the phone it's worth it's value and the razor is not!
does anyone know if it supports the h.264 codec? if there are any video nerds out there h.263 has been the standard for a while but i was hoping that the new one is compatable... anyways if anyone knows holla
