It is true that the Satio is being pulled, just been told by O2 rep that there are too many problems and returns with the phone... in UK
There may be a re-release in the future BUT ....
He did recommend NOT to buy the phone!
Im puzzled which phone to purchase now???
T-Mobile said they pulled it because it has too many faults. Slow, freezing etc.
Is it true se have pulled this phone, apparently you can no longer get hold of it ?
Anonymous, 26 Nov 2009I think all of these software problems are mostly from cellphone networks...This friend said "I guess most problems come from the network itself" ... I think he means that most problems come from carriers/networks own software/firmware... so it's true; mobile comes from factory with specific and appropriated firmware and networks after locking put their own, which the only thing that can make to you phone (besides the obvious intention of promote their own services) is to raise the probability of your phone give you problems...
how is the sound quality of the phone ? ? ?
Sony Ericsson W995 or Sony Ericsson Satio (Idou)
Which phone has a better headphones sound clarity ? ? ?
iv just got this phone and its the best phone in the world and the iphone does not mach up to it!!!
Who has this phone in US or Canada? Are you having the same issues of crashing ect... Next Q, is it true you get 15 Free movie downloads with the phone and 5 more each month? Thanks!
I got a Vodafone silver Satio 2 days ago and it hasnt skipped a beat yet. Made phone calls, messages, used internet, installed an application or 2. It's a great phone, not perfect though. Camera is excellent!
I've got mine from SG, so far no issues. Works like a breeze. Even better than my N97 mini which crashes very often.
My only dissapointment is the lack of applications but this will grow eventually over time. Excellent camera and superb features and built quality. I guess the ones in Asia are looking good :)

Mobile phone retailers Carphone Warehouse and Phones 4U have temporarily withdrawn the Sony Ericsson Satio smartphone from their stores.
Both companies said the move followed complaints from customers about software problems.
Phones 4U announced its decision to stop selling the handset 24 hours after rival retailer Carphone Warehouse.
Sony Ericsson said it was "giving this matter its utmost priority and working toward solving it".
None of the companies involved gave details about the nature of the fault but Satio users online have been complaining about frozen screens and problems with ringtones.
"Now on my second Satio and it still has the same issues," wrote Iain H on a handset review site. "Screen freezing and no ringtone. Only way to solve the problem is to take the battery out."
He added: "I'm glad I'm not the only one with this problem."
Sony Ericsson recently announced a new smartphone model, the Xperia X10. It is the company's first Android handset but it is not due to go on sale until 2010.
Verity Burns, a technology journalist with gadget magazine Stuff thinks the problem lies with how the Sony Ericsson user interface interacts with the Symbian operating system on the phone.
"The phone seems to be turning itself off when people access certain applications but not everyone will be affected. Vodafone and Orange run their own interfaces and don't seem to have the issue."

kevin, 26 Nov 2009Hey all. I've been using nokia mobiles for a long time and to my knowledge gone are the glorio... moreKelvin,
There is no such thing as the "best" or "end-all be-all" phone in this world. I have a Satio as well & to be honest with you. It has crashed on numerous occasions. After crashing, you need to "Remove batt, reinsert & switch ON again." I kind of expected it as this Symbian touchscreen OS is new to SE. One thing for sure, Nokia has much better after sales service than SE. At least they bother to upgrade their software. Satio has software issues & I am waiting for their new software. Satio has been removed from retail outlets in UK citing "handset problem" & especially the Black version.Btw, mine is the Silver. Don't ask me what colour has to do with it. Having said that, if you unlucky you can also end up buying a "lemon."
Well I have this for a while and didnt have any major problem :)Everything run fine as promise just waiting until I can insert my 32gm sd to see it is running and for the application I see some Nokia application can run in satio so no major worry about application and I already got my bible application
