The NEW model Satio which is the one that has all the fixes and some new hardware is a pretty good phone overall when compared to other Symbian phones and its the only 12 smart phone out there and with the new software update it should make a lot of fans happy. But I have to say to those with the older model Satio that has all the hardware and software problems, try to contact Sony Ericsson or the place you purchased the phone as you might be able to get the new model. The old model is broken and has issues and Sony Ericsson did stop manufacturing the old model and recall any that were sent to retailers. But not before many ran out and purchased the flawed phone. CONTACT THE RETAILER AND SONY ERICSSON FOR YOUR REGION. YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO GET IT RETURNED OR TRADED. I won't buy one till I can be sure that it will be a new model and not an old one or should a good phone come out with the new Symbian^3 OS then I'll get that. Whichever comes first!
newbie, 07 Mar 2010Does any one known that this phone can change of casing? example; sliver change to black?Not possible, but silver is the best one, why you wanna change it to black? I have silver myself.

I haven't got it either, in mid-east. Someone from czech said he has it and he said it's faster now, some new transitions added, some minor but nice changes made to the UI, camera has better quality and the video he said is perfect. He didn't say anything about kinetic scrolling. Hope it's added too!

mine takes about 28-30sec.....without any 3rd party apps installed
my sister's n97 takes about 30sec
and samsung omnia hd demonstrate about 25sec (in youtube,,coz i don't have)
as we know both omniahd n satio runs on much powerful cpu n ram compared n97...
satio/omniahd runs on 600mhz plus 3d gpu while n97 runs on obselete arm11 clocked at 434 with slow n integrated 3d gpu
but seems n97 runs smoothly with their latest fw....n97 has much faster ui,,,,kinetic scrolling...
omniahd just got an major updated like n97,,,faster ui,3d engine n kinetic scrolling but where satio fw? we need this update....
satio has amazing platform like omnia hd...
we need major upgrade
btw when R2AK006 fw enters my region? (indonesia,APAC)...SEUS said that my fw (R1CA037) is up to date
O think the new firmware update is already available for Europe. When I try Middle East it is not yet available. When I try Europe, it prompts me the update to download. I did not use it since my Satio was bought in Saudi Arabia where I am presently working. Hopefully, new firmware will be available for Middle East a week or two. I am excited to update again my Satio to get those enhancement particularly the WVGA recording.

when install any apps install it to ur e drive this way you leave more memory to your phone and will definitely help why hangs
hope this helps

GO N FINDOUT FROM SATIO USERS how long does it boot before coming here dude...
bernie , 07 Mar 2010i have had this fone a week and hate it its taken 25 mins to turn on and it has many other fau... moreu sure bernie? i hav mine way bak dec 22 but never xperiens wat u said... exaggerated? u know ur making satio0o darling of the crowd... unbelievable??? 25 min? wooh...really?
i have had this fone a week and hate it its taken 25 mins to turn on and it has many other faults its wivout a doubt the worst handset ever
those who say it hangs, they have the older model. you must remember, the new versions have an updated motherboard layout; they use the same cpu and gpu however have alterations in components used and placement. honestly, ive sold atleast 20 of the new models, none have hanged once and work perfectly with the R1CA037
honestly, i think that the satio is not v. good. the phone hangs quite often and the res is not that good. the only good part is in the camera but this makes it expensive... i want to get samsung omnia2
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2010my satio made in china...is that a problem? btw,,seus said that my satio is up to date....whe... moreno, not a problem as most satios seem to be made in chine if not all. who knows when the update will be out, few people seem to have it but who knows if they are kying or not as they dont comment on the changes. but id say within a week all unbranded sations around the world should have access to the update.
