I'm partial to SE phones and I'm looking to get a new one. But there's slim pickin's out there right now it seems. I love the side locking key, the swivel design and especially the ability to use this phone as a flashlight! I use that, the timer/stopwatch, the converter java app that came loaded on it all the time. It's just a solid phone. The cons would be laggy menu's, memstick duo (no pro duo) and it would be nice if it was just a little slimmer. But the pro's far outweigh the cons.
I've had this phone for about three years and i rarely use the internet:mainly used for utility reasons and here are the specs
Pros: Very loud ring tone (compared to other phones), has speaker, but kind of annoying because it only has the speaker option once it has connected the call, has a timer (which i use ALL the time), has a light for the phone in the back that's really bright, and really nice themes
Cons: the major con i have to say is the lag. It lags really bad and it's really annoying because i go to games or pictures and when it doesn't register fast enough it makes me go online and then i have to pay extra(HATE phones that have that web button that can be hit accidentally and be charged, and also the charger, very unique charger so if lost or broken going to have to buy a new one (compared to sprint universal chargers) and it's strange sometimes the charger doesn't register and i have to wiggle it around to finally charge, but overall i would also give this phone a 8.75/10. SE needs to make more of these w/o the lag!
Hey everyone! I just bought this phone off ebay for 81$! so if your wondering thats where you can get one from!
Hi, I know it is very nice phone, and I need to buy one.. though it is no more in production, still if anybody possess one which is working gr8, then reply to me via email. :)
Have had mine for many years now and it really is a great phone. I've been in and out from phone stores to see if anything new has arrived but there aint much this one cant do. My phone is still going strong. Bought a new battery last week from some replica, it's like new!! good battery time again :)
I love this phone. The best in its time. With its features it can still match new models. Too bad I'll be disposing mine. I need something that has great battery life. Sayang
I love this phone.I switched around 15 phones for the past 3-4 years, but this one is amazing! Easy to use,perfect options,never died in my hands,superb design.The only wrong thing - lack of memory! I would really like new release with the same design, same screen,a bit better camera and bunch of memmory!
Purchased S700. Have to say: amazing picture phone for a 1.3mp.
BEST KEYPAD EVER PRODUCED... feedback is exceptional, keys are VERY easily recognizable, and dug-in which gives for a solid unbeatable feel.
Screen res./size is amazing.
I've had it for 3years now and I still use it only now it is my secondary phone after a Nokia 5610 and SE P1.
i got this phone about 2 months after it came out and i have loved it ever since. it is one of the best phones i have ever used. too bad it came out the same time as the razr or this phone would have stuck around a lot longer.
does anyone know where i can purchase a new one mine is dying due to heavy use.
I love this phone so much, lol, It has been one of the best I have ever had. I work in theatre and have dropped it from high places countlessly. But, does anyone know where I can get a new housing for it? or Back?
well i really like da phone and i think its good but i've had it for bout a year and now its frozen and i can't use it. so if anyone can help me unfreeze my phone i would love it. thank Shoody
best phone ever. i've had mine for 2+ years, and i work in construction so it goes through countless beatings ... yet, still works in excellent condition, minus the countless scratches ...
up to now, i still get people asking about my phone ... crazy!
Btw...one thing I forgot to mentioned which I don't think any other phone allows you to do is send a text msg with a voice memo.
Example, I usually send a HAPPY BDAY greeting as part of my text msg but its me saying it to them instead of typing it. Get it?
This way its more personal....
Amanda...yes it has a speakerfone
And yes, this phone does work in Canada on the Rogers/Fido networks.
I bought this phone back in May 2005 and have not really had any complaints about it.
I really love all the features it offers. Many of my friends/co-workers even to this day ask me if I would sell it to them..haha
I once remember being at the Autoshow in 2006 and a young couple kept following me around from car to car (as I was snapping pics and talking on the phone). They female finally asked me if it was a camera or phone or both...I let them take a look at it and they offered me more money then I paid it. Btw..I bought my S710 outright without a contract for around $750.
I smile and said thanks but no thanks. They did give me their number and asked me to give them a call if I ever decide to sell it.
PLS make the phone available us here in Nigeria. It's old but still have it takes to compete with Newer Versions
Ive had the S710a (Cingular/AT&T Variant) for over 2 years now instead of buying a RAZR; this phone has been everything i wanted and then some; It's 1.3 MP camera and video mode have let me capture countless priceless moments of family, friends, and the quirks and oddities of things ive seen. I have been looking around for a suitable replacement that carries over all the phones' qualities and strengths, just an updated version of it really, and still havent found one. This post is more an ode to my S710a; i've had various brands and models of very nice cell phones since 2000 back in high school (anyone remember the Nokia 5165?) but this has been the only one i was satisfied with all around since ive owned it. I STILL get questions about it or comments about it from strangers. The only negatives i have to say about it are the lack of support for pro duo cards exceeding 128MB in size and the proprietary headphone jack (i spliced my own headphones into the included headphone sets' jack so i could have my favorite set of headphones double as my hands-free) but aside from that, i will honestly be sorry to let it go or sell it; I only used the memory cards for ringtone songs and picture storage; my iPod is for music and D-SLR's are for serious photography, but it was more than worth what i paid for it. Kudos, S/E, for a fantastic phone and one very happy customer.
Im looking into a S/E K850, W960 or W910 as a replacement, yet none of them does everything the S710a does (ahem, video?) so i may just stick with it for another year or two. I am not in the least interested in the iPhone for its lack of video capturing, relatively poor image quality, and lack of memory card slot, it also is incompatible with my cars' head unit iPod jack (Pioneer AVIC D3 Navi/DVD) whereas my S710a i can use hands free through my car.
i have had this phone for 2 years and still am very happy with it...it has been my mini office...alarm clock..notepad...picture taker and much much more...i would love to see this phone be given the upgrades it deserves and live on!!!
