SE outsource probably 80-90 percent of its production.
The 70% is very conservative estimate.
Yes, you do not!
Most fans do - that is the reason they not accept the fact that most SE phone is made by not SE!
I also do: :) people would not buy a Ferrari if it is made in a Fiat factory or a Porsche if it is made in a VW factory.
BTW: Samsung and Nokia do not outsource manufacturing (or minimal)!!!!
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Most of the parts, and some of the cars for Ford, Chevy,and Dodge in the US, are made somewhere else than here.
So Who Really Cares!!!

She love the Samsung. But I think it depends on the person. Some do better with a keyboard, some better with a touchscreen. You will make mistakes on both when typing, so again it depends on what you like.
is this really easy to use than a hardware keypad phone? think for a moment and be honest to yourself before you answer. hardware keypad seems way faster and easier to use.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970It is , for example, if the belt on your car breaks, you take it to someone that knows how to fix it. If you watch , you will know how to do it next time it happens. You learn something, and could save you money, this is the smart thing to do.
That is what is happening when you outsource, you learn from other people Which is the smart thing to do. Also it could be cheaper for the company to do it that way.
It just blows my mind that people dont think about things like this before they speak. Maybe that is why they spend so much time complaining, and posting useless post on here.

You do not ... moreAs an SE fan, I have been aware that Sagem have been making low-end phones for SE and low-end phones only but what makes this complicated is the fact that you tell out loud that Sagem makes phone for SE even though people out here are talking about a phone made in Japan. Here's the thing, if you really want to inform people about Sagem making phones for SE, I think it is better if you post in the j series forums or in the t250 forums.

By the way, to anon... moreIn the links I posted below is what is happening, with out all the extra opinions that somepeople add to it. Also if people would post links, it would save alot of useless posts, and misunderstandings.
As far as there Customer Service, why not give them a call and find out? That will be the only way to answer that question for you.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970why dont you understand that thats just a cooperation and nothing more, and that cooperation will include only low-end phones. read the news again if you dont understand it. so SE Idou and SE X5 doesnt have to do nothing with that, in fact they will be made in Japan not in other countries like it happen before
Direwolf_65, 25 May 2009Sony Ericsson and Sagem cooperate Link 1; http://www.intomobile.com/2007/03/26/sony-ericss... morethat has never happend because SE never said anything about that. and as you can see that could happend only for low-end phones not for kings such are Idou and X1. Mobinova is the only partner of SE for the moment and that only for WM phones
I told you. It took you a few hours and some help but you were able to google - congratulation!!!!
Now, the next task is for you to start reading newspapers. :)))))
Kal, 25 May 2009Is that what you understood from my post? Did I say that IDOU will be manufactured by segam? I... moreSony Ericsson and Sagem cooperate
I do not say bad things :)
You have no problem if people say only good things?
You do not blame them to misinform the reader with unrealistic b.s.
Saying the facts are not hatred! I guess that is over your understanding.
Saying the SE got technology from Sagem is not hatred.
What strange is that fans deny the fact. I guess according to your logic they must hate Sagem.
Kal, 25 May 2009Is that what you understood from my post? Did I say that IDOU will be manufactured by segam? I... moreKal,
It is useless to try and to correct mstL. He spends his time trying to bury the truth, or any dicussion about the Idou or Sony for that matter. He has done it for a long time now, and on other Sony phones on this web sight. Why I am not sure of. He either gets his kicks off of making people mad, has nothing better to do, is mad because he does not have a Sony phone, or some other reason I am not sure of. You may do as I did, if you are looking for answers try other web sights as well as this one, you will run across someone that will help you or answer questions about the phone. Plus there is not all the B. S. going on.
How odd. Is sagem something terrible? Sorry. I have no clue on this issue. By the way, to anonymous from mstl. Did you have a bad experience using se phone? Why all the comments you post here are talking the bad of se? I don't quite get it. Why do you bare so much hatred against a particular brand? And is x1 really that bad? My friend's x1 was quite good and i find the overall experience quite pleasant except at some points where the phone starts to lag.
Hope to hear from you guys soon. =)
P.S. Is sony ericsson's customer service very poor and terrible? Personally, i doubt idou will be priced at usd 1500 as that's just an estimation. The release date is already an error so i suggest we take it with a pinch of salt. Regarding the 28th may case, i have my fingers crossed. ^.^
now I have alomost 20 se phones , and only 2 had minor problems
they are well constructed and are made with good materials too.
I just love them and are one of the important things in my life
Anonymous, 25 May 2009same with me too.i dnt care about 3.5mm jack but i care about wot the fans want and need in th... moreI used to be one that had earbuds in there ear wired to there phone. It was a pain in the butt at times, getting the wire caught on something, having it be pulled out of my ear or jerk my phone out of my case or pocket. When they came out with stereo Bluetooth it was great not having that wire, and I have 2 sets of stereo Bluetooth. I just dont think lot of people have thought about it, or dont know that there is a stereo bluetooth out there. Besides, after you put all that money into a set of wired headphones, and replacing them, you could have a stereo bluetooth headset. But then again that is IMO.
and for all other potential buyers:
Since Se phones do not break, and the customer service is just wonderful.
Please, before you buy any model call them up. You will never ever need them afterwards. This post about poor construction - screeen breaks easily - must been written by an SE hater.
So call the mup and you will have anexperience of your lifetime:
- you get prompt service, you do not need to wait for 35 minutes for a REP. There are many, you know :) the leave messages here all the time :)))
- you do not need to navigate through a computer maze
- you get a discounted call to all overt the World since customer service outsourced.
- you are able talk to agents all over, learn their accent and you even be forced to practice that - so great! :)
- You leave all your personal info with the agent, since it is mandatory before you can ask questions.
You got a new friend :) you get mails, phone calls, you never feel alone afterward!
- For your questions you can get unlimited answers. Se guarantees that if you ask the question several times from different agents you will never get the same answer. You need high tech customer service for that. But if you lucky the same agent will give you different answers - you save money and time. :)
- It is almost sure that after this experience will be convinced that the reasons for your call is not important compare to your emotional state. You will feel you are a new person. It is like a religious experience. No wonder so many say here ˝SE Rules˝ :)
B, 25 May 2009hey.... i heard dat most of da sony ericssons phone are after da period of the warranty time..... moreYES B.
Your concern is very understandable! But, do not worry it is totally unsubstantiated.
SE can make perfect phones, so go ahead and buy the phone. But get it today, and let us know how much you liked it.
You should not even asked, just walk in to your nearest Sony Center and get it, get a half a dozen! All your friends will enjoy them.
