1.) MS Duo PRO does NOT work, unless there is a 1gb ms duo that i don't know of hence no, no 1gb ms supported
2.) EASILY scratched, & I mean EASILY~
3.) Signal is fine, but yet OTHERS can't hear YOU occasionally
4.) Battery only 780mAh, hence frequent charges
5.) Camera is great, one of the best 1.3mp i've seen on any phone.
6.) Interface is reasonably fast, not too slow like some older/other sonys
7.) It's big, feels firm & solid, good & bad, depending on person.
That's about it, price of this phone is dropping dramatically. Get it?! It's up to you. Really depends on person =)
ive had this phone since november and it is so awesome.
yall have read about how great the pictures are, so i would elaborate.
however, they did stop making this phone so be prepared to have complications if you break it.
i have cingular, and i recently lost my s710.
they cant replace it because they dont carry it.
it was replaced with the w600 which is really ugly and orange. however, the w600 has awesome music features. it can play music outload like a stero.
Does any one know if this phone can support a 2gb, memory stick pro duo. Please let me know as soon as possible.
s710 is a great mobile phone but i am expecting that features like edge,3G,Wi-fi,3.2 mega pixel camera,a very high sreen resolution, a better music and smart phone should come with the next S-series sony ericsson.
remove your firewall this is blocking your usb and stopping syn messages
This is the coolest phone every.. with lots of things sweet stlye.. Guys I need your help i am tried to hooked the phone with my laptop by using usb cable but it doesn't reconize the phone.. I download all the software and driver from sony ericsson.com including the file manager but, its still doesn't work all its found new hardware usb cable and its says install this hardware and says you have to have software and i downloaded already but it didn't work.. I want to tranfer mp3's to phone... but, it doesn't reconige the phone. soooo please help!! thanks. my email is email@example.com
The S710a works great, but I can't get my computer to recognize the phone. I purchased a DCU-11 Data cable for the phone. I downloaded and installed the drivers for it from the SE website. Also, I downloaded & installed 'file manager'. but it still won't connect, it gives me some error msg, like I need the right software/drivers for the phone. What is this and where do I find it? I connected the cable to my old phone (SE Z600) and it worked just fine. How do I get it to work for my S710a? Help!!!!
it luks alrite i supose bu wat i wudnt like is d way dat it turns.u c it cud very easly break so ud prop ave 2 b careful wit it.bu oda dan dat it luks ok.
I have this phone and is great... this is not a smartphone but the end of this phone is not that. In reference of memory, yes, you are right, not accept MSPro, but for the mp3 storage, u can edit the files (low the bit of the songs), u lost something of quality, but in a portable device don't do matter, and you can store most of 70 mp3 files... a song of 128Kb sound same that one of 80Kb.
Hey this fone is nice and all. but the this is it cant go with a memry stick PRO duo...only duo and U CANT FIND THAT ANYWHERE :(....damn it...now becuz of that i have to sell my s710a and go with the w900 :(!
What you saying 4YNf ??? W600 doesn't even have MC slot , either ANY SLOT , maybe you mean W800???
Great Phone crappy Memory :( Went with the w600 with a 2 gig memory stick pro duo and i use it as my mp3 player to my system in my car :)I still use the 710 for everyday calls and regular phone use..
This phone simply amazes me. The size is perfect for me and so easy to hold. The RAZR hurt my hand after awhile. As a phone it is loud and clear. The signal is strong. The speakerphone is great and people cannot even tell when I'm using it. As far as style goes, it's impressive. Everyone who has seen it either says "WOW! What a great phone!" or "That's too much for me, all I need is a phone to make calls with." I have a feeling they don't want to admit the inferiority of their own phone. :)
The controls are great, and you really don't have to open the phone unless you need the numbers or letters, for example sending an sms. You can do most everything else with the navigation pad and soft keys. I have read other reviews before I got the phone that complained of the keys being slick and flush with the body. They really aren't that slick and I like the fact they are flush. You can also program the navigation pad with shortcuts. This is really nice and saves many button presses to get to specific features you use a lot. Nice job Sony Ericsson!
Okay for the camera. The pics are near photo quality, but still a bit grainy. I afraid you can't throw away your separate digital camera yet. I suspect that within a couple of years or so camera phones will be true photo quality. I wish that it had a faster capture rate to reduce blurring, if you don't hold it completely still you're gonna have to snap another. And finally, it would be nicer if there was a real flash and not just a light, it works, but you have to turn it on and off. Minor hassle
The video recorder is okay, but the sound is not very loud unless you are right up to the mic. But hey, what do you expect from a phone.
Now for the MP3 player. Sounds decent, actually pretty loud for a phone. Headphones sound great. I do wish there were tracking capabilities, with only pause and play, you have to start at the beginning every time. It's still a phone.
Overall this phone has made me a true SE fan.
i loveeeee this phone x10 but the discontinued this phone from Cingular... does anyone know why?? :(
hey guys, ive had this phone for 5 months, and they have been the best with the s710a. this phone is awesome. best phone ive owned. and first digital camera. the pictures it takes have such great quality. not so much at night time though. but anyways, before i got this phone i had been looking for it for so much, i couldn't find it anywhere. cingular didn't provide it anymore. but then this new cell phone company was build in my city. they had all the companies. i went down and i found it. the s710. i was so happy. i didn't waist any time. i bought it. i was going to tell u guys who couldnt find the phone to come down to this store to buy it but they just recently became only sprint and nextell. sorry. but my point is to who ever cant find try goins to self, indipendent owened stores, maybe you'll find it there. if not e-bay, they have tons of those phones. i really recoment it. the phone has this bluetooth thing that lets ur phone and other phones connect wirelessly and look at eachothers pictures, music, ringtones, videos, and actually get them onto ur phone. my friends an i are always sending eachother ringtones, and its free. awesome. i mean you could even make ur own ringtone. any mp3 song u upload to ur phone u could make a ring tone. it is really a great phone, digital camera, digital photo album, mp3 player with so much other great things. worth every penny.
Hello everyone!!! Can anyone help me??? my girlfriend has S710i we had try to upload some games and applicattions (jar, all of them) but when the file is in the phone can´t install it the unique option that appears is "send", why i can´t install´em??, i´ve been thinking about s7001 and i have this idea, S710i is a cheaper phone (with all things than means this) that´s why softawre is not so good as i wish... i own K750i and is just GREAT!!!!! so i can say that s710 has some problems, sometimes is slow, themes aren´t recognized as they should, one detail that a ihad seen is block phone password (this is the one that the phone requires to star when a new sim is inserted) is always required even if is configured on automatic (this means that is only asked for it when the sim has been changed and not evry time is switched on) no other sony ericsson do that!!!!! can anybody help me telling me if i´m wrong with my general idea about phone, thanks a lot.
i wish i could have this phone but write now i have nextel which really sux but hopefully i can someday get this phone
yea, i had this phone for about 3 months and this phone is great....besides the fact that i can't hear very well once i put the phone next to my ear to talk! and the speakerphone function is too low. my previous $30 nokia has a better speakerphone than this. also, i hate the fact that you would have to wait for the other line to pick up your call before you could choose the speakerphone function. other than that, it's great.
WOW... that phone is amazing... now i can't figure out why they would disconntinue it in stores and replace it with a look alike phone but with a smaller screen no expandable memory and for god sake... orange...comon... this phone is awsome they need to bring it back out...
I really love this phone... except it doesnt take 1GB memory stick that really sucks but besides that i wont ever trade this phone for anything
