Just bought this phone 04/01/2009 in silver from MORRISONS £39.99 - fantastic value!
T303 doesn't cost u much, so wouldn't u think already that t303 may not be the multimedia phone that u want. For this kind of price, of course u only get a talk and text basic phone which is really fair. If u want more, then u need to pay more, not complaining here abt t303, plus people should do some research before buying it, as if SE forced u to buy it. u want more fun, how abt get a w980 w910 or n series?
This fone is so stupid! I thought it might be a decent fone. It has so many missing features that they dont tell you about. It has no such thing as videos+it has 8mb of internal memory and no micro sd card slot(Who made this fone??!!). The funny thing about it does not tell you on the box that it has 8mb of memory but it tells you it has a mp3 player(Don't most mp3 players hold more than 3 songs in their memory??!!). I think my old 2-year fone has more features than this one. Any who wants to buy a new fone should study on it to make sure the fone you are buying does not end up to be a budgo!!
Having Purchased this phone as a replacement handset while my Blackberry is off getting fixed, I felt compelled to right to get my two cents worth in.
Do NOT be under any delusion that this mobile is for media purposes! People complaining about it wont hold mp3, etc... Its not designed too. The mp3 player on it is part of the software to be used for playing sound clips. If you really want a part of your favorite current song, Download the mp3 and cut the part of the track you want using audacity or similar software.... If you enjoy listening to full mp3 tracks on your mobile (generally on buses) this is not the Phone for you!
As for the camera. 1.3 mega pixel aint bad for a phone this size. Some people have said it should have at least 2mp. If you had a 2mp camera you would only be able to take 1 picture and then run out of memory!
As a mobile to Talk and Text this is Perfect for me. Im used to having Email etc on blackberry but this is a welcome relief for a few days.
I rate this phone extremely highly. In the past i have bought small phones, Siemens SL55, SL65 etc... and in comparison this is fantastic!
Well, I have this phone for about two months now, and I like it...
And about the memory...I don't need it...I have another mobile phone with memory card (SE K530) which I use as a MP3 player...
So yes, T303 is cool ONLY cause it's so small, but that's what I was aiming for when buying it...
Good battery life, good lookin', loud speaker (not the best when it comes to quality - but loud enough)...

This is not meant to be anything else but a pretty designer phone with basic functions, which is exactly what it is :)
I love this phone, and am going to tell you why. But first, a word about specifications: Some people have bought this phone assuming that because it is newly-released it will (or should) have certain features, then reviewed and slated the phone because they are disappointed. Sorry to state the obvious to some of you, but you've got to read the spec before buying. If you want an all-singing, all dancing handset, you'll know this one isn't (and neither is it meant to be) before you spend your money.
So why do I like the phone? It suits my requirements really well. It is good for the things I need it to do with no unnecessary frills...
Slider: This feels robust, unlike some Samsung models I've owned that were supposed to be premium fashion phones but felt really flimsy and plasticky.
Texting/keypad: I'm a busy person and have sent many texts in a rush, but have never felt particularly slowed down by the keypad/software on this - well no more than other phones, certainly: I owned a Motorola V9 that was no faster/smarter than this for texting, and the V3 was slower.
Calling: It does the job. Nice clear calls, ringer/speaker go loud enough for me. Never any problems. The same cannot be said for the aforementioned Samsungs (to give an example) that rounded raspy and very harsh - almost painful to the ear when turned up to hear in noisy environments!
Size: It's pocket-friendly and pleasant to look at. Not too small for me, just conveniently dinky. I have quite slim fingertips however, and if you are someone with larger hands or wider fingertips you might find it a little cramped.
Memory: I have an IPod that I'm happy with, so apart from the odd downloaded ringtone I don't need or want to pay out the money for more. If you want to use your mobile as an mp3 player, cross this one off your list and don't buy it. Simple.
Camera: If you're on a night out (or any other occasion) and feel like sending a few piccies for a laugh, this 1.3mp snapper is fine. I'm happy with my digital camera so again, I don't need more. This will do black and white or sepia to make the pic slightly more interesting. If you want a built-in advanced camera you won't be buying this anyway, will you?
Menu system/interface: I find this gloriously simple and free from unwanted, unnecessary menu items to trawl through. I think this because I need literally a telephone to call and text people. If you get to the stage of buying this phone, presumably you have similar needs. The icons are clear, it's not lightning-fast at displaying pictures, but let's face it, most people wouldn't propose to have this as their main or only digital camera. If I wanted anything more whizz-bang, I'd be paying more than £40!
Overall a lovely little phone for people looking for a basic-functioning handset. Everyone else has probably stopped reading by now.
How stupid of Sony Ericsson to not give the oportunity of adding extra memory, you can only take about 4 photos and its full so transfer/delete is only option. Shame, like the look of phone but am dissapointed
up to 400 hours stand by only if you have your phone off. this phone e uma merda
why'd you buy it knowing the specs? or you just bought in on impulse?
jasper, 25 Dec 2008I bought a t303 and I can't find my files i hate this phone it cant hold anything it is better havin a phone that is from the ice age this phone is crap so it aint worth buying i wish i nevery bought it to start i can only get two songs downloaded onto its crapy memory so i hope you read this and dont buy one as i think they are shit so dont buy it please if you want to have a phone that holds more than a sieve lol
MP3 player on the phone but with only 8mb of shared memory and no memory card slot. That's very creative!
justin , 23 Dec 2008im planning to get one but cant decide from black or silver? Black ? silver? silver looks better the screen lookslike a mirror similar to the lg shine in silver
i just got this phone in pink...works very well...but the screen is so small!
