help me what`s the problem on my phone its t290i
I bought it in mid 2005 and still use it as my second phone - it works and works and works without any problem. Just recently had to change the original battery. I love the looks but hate when it comes to writing messages, the keys have such a slow response. Cool phone, though.
T290 was 1 of the best color screen fon in 2004 & 2005. Because of its sleek design, colour screen, polyphonic tone, good preloaded games, it stayed in the market for quite some time. Later models like J200/J210,took its place. J2xx wins this cute model bcos it has built-in infrared wich is a good connectivity feature. J2xx series was also made with good & sharper screen than T290.
it has cool features but darn! you have to bring gazillions of extra batteries.
I have had my SE T290a for over a year. Previously I owned a T237. If you are having problems with the battery, buy more. I have 4 batteries for this phone. I use the T237 as a charger. Recently I bought the HPB20 headset for habdsfree use. That was a great idea. I just use my phone to receive and make calls. Great phone! If you buy a battery PLEASE make sure it is the Sony Ericsson OEM battery. I am reading that non-OEM batteries may explode.
This phone has a terrible battery life. It's fine if you never make or receive any calls whatsoever. When I use it however, it will indicate I have a nearly full battery, yet turn itself off after 10 minutes of talk time.
this is awesome. i made the right decision of buying this one. it never lets you down.. though it is cheap yet it has a remarkable features...
This phone is awesome.
I've been using it for the last 2 years and all I can say is that I'm happy with the overall performance of a cheap mobile.
I even was sourprised sometimes, T290 have some features that I didn't expected to find on such a low-priced device.
From the start the navigation is good, maybe you'll find a little bit of lag on menus with big content, but the responsiveness really acceptable, and this lag, it's caused by the screen resolution and display.
The overall is a friendly user and good looking interface.
The visual experience when using the device is excelent, stands for bright and clear colors, with in addition to the interface customization of the device gives a really good impression.
The phone customization is excelent, except for the SMS sound (wich can set as beep, vibration or sound), you can add custom sound and image to every single feature of the phone. It also accepts wav,mp3,midi audio formats (those are the ones I remember now, there may be more)
and png, jpeg, bmp and Gif image formats.
The adition of a USB connection makes the customization process a lot easier.
The Internet features of the device (wich is it's bigger pro) are nothing but exceptional, it can do most of things that 3 generation cell phones can do.
You can read E-mails, send them, log to MSN messenger, Download, Visit WAP sites, Download applications and much more.
It also has awesome messaging features, just as long sms, mms, the possibility to attach files to messages, and the input of smilies and other characters.
You can also receive them.
The Sound quality and volume is far more than acceptable for such a low-price device, sounds loud and clear. The master volume is great.
And you can also record audio and use it as ringtones.
As for the games,you have a nice screen and hardware, you can play really good looking games on this.
The only weak, but still acceptable aspect of this device is that for all things mentioned before, it has a big battery consumption time, you'll find yourself re-charging it oftenly.
I will be in Greece this summer and i just purchased this phone through ebay. Does anyone know if i use a greek sim card if i will be able to set the language to Greek??
it's a very good mobile, software is very easy and not too slow-as it nkown about it,it's battery very reliable unless you buy a cheap one for it, and it's speakers are awesome, the best thing of it is that you can download for it amr tones from the wap which looks like mp3!
i've been using my t290 for almost 4 years and i'm loving it! it's very easy to use, you can personalize many things on the phone and the baterry last for about 5 days!
the bad thing about this cellphone is it's speed, it has a slow response, you can be pretty pissed off if you are in a hurry.
