the bigest problem is the reception !!!
also it's a small phone and to light
Someone gave me this phone and I was about to chuck it as I was having the reception problems.
The phone is very small and light, a little bit fiddly if your trying to SMS. Seems to just have a few features less than my T65, but at least it's much brighter!
But it's still not for me, I'll give it to my mum hehe
Try the solutions listed below it might work. It's still too nice a phone to just throw out.
thanks to the other posters =)
Just bought the T600 4 my girlfriend. She lost her Siemens c61. Got a new Sims card & activated it. Phone doesn't work. Did I screw up with compatability? Will try the gerrit...maybe itll work??
this is my 2nd T600, my first T600 was a 2nd hand phone, it worked for a day or 2 n then started showin the message "No network" tried to get it repaired form a local tech n dun know wht he did with that phone it heated up after half an hour of the repair n it never wored again, then i took it to a SonyEricsson service center, they said that phone is of no use n cannot fix it. had to leave that phone with SonyEricsson people, then brought another one around 5 months back, this one is also a 2ndhand , had to go for a 2nd hand phone reason being that the product was an outdated product, n was not awailable as a 1st hand, even tried on ebay cudnt find a brand new product, i love T600, thats best phone one can have.
I was also very disappointed in the sleeping bug problem, losing network all the time, until I tried the solution by gerrit. Put some cardboard or paper to make the SIM press better against the contacts. Put in battery. Then fill up remaining space with some more paper/cardboard and close it with the battery cap. My T600 lost network within 3 minutes of turning it on. The Gerrit solution has made it running for 6 days straight now, no problems anymore!
same like masa; i had my first t600 that gave problems in finding network. under guarantee it was repaired. after a few months it failed again. still under guarantee they gave me a new one, just one year later this one is also broke (always same problem) i noticed that this phone couldn't stand heat, in summer i had to place it above my airco in the car and then it could find a network. a friend had the same phone, and had ...the same problem; seems that this is a general production fault
I have been using the phone almost 2 years. It started giving problem for Searching network. I thought the problem may have something to do with loose connection of SIM card. I have put small pieces of paper inside the phone, as padding above the SIM card. Now it works fine. Sometime get problem for Searchng Network. Then I open it and again adjust the papers inside and it works fine..
I have this cel for more than 1 year. It was working so well until a month ago.. now is searching for network. I really love it.. it's small, triband (i have a real need for a triband), integrated antenna, NO flip open (i hate that).. and it has all the functions i need... Now i am searching to replace it but i can't find these features in an small cellphone like this.. if i find on internet this model.. i will buy it for sure...
No network error means one of the electronic parts does not function any more. The service center will not fix it. I love the size of this phone. However, I feel SE is cheating the public by selling them something that will not last.
i had this very tiny one for 1 year.
it is small but has cool sound quality,
carrying is good, cuz almost you dont feel it.
I've had this phone for 2 years and I can't complain. It's cute and small and wasn't too much pain. I flushed it in the toilet and it went through the drains. sigh.
Hello everyone !!!
i have this little nice phone, but it is always in searching for the network.
Can anyone here or there help me with the solution for this issue ?
Please drop me some ideas - firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in advance !!!
Sony Ericsson batteries are crap, standby and call times are always oversatetd and
Hello T600 users, lovers and haters,
I own a T600 for two years,
smallest phone existing on the market. Fancy. Period. 60g. Tri-band. Who wants more.
So small I lose it in my pockets.
This phone does have a problem with disconnection from the network: following advices have solved my problems. The worse of all this is SE hasn't even looked into this problem. That's why I'm thinking of buying a Nokia, a phone however fancy it is is of NO use if you cannot receive and you cannot call or refer to Service to fix it.
1) The first is that the standard battery 610 mAh is a bit weak for emission/reception in closed places. The stonger the battery the
better the network connection: ON ANY PHONE.
Batteries go bad with time. After a year or two you should consider replacing with a new and possibly stronger battery: I advise the 760 mAh for the sony erricson T66. Same fit.
2) Second, the battery seems to get loose in its casing with time and can move without you knowing it. You will lose your network.
It will not exert enough pressure on the
electrical contacts. I have pressed the battery slightly on boot up, the netwok problems I have been having for the last week dissapear (I was going to trash it).
3) A remedy for this problem is to apply
scotch tape inside the battery cover, 4 or 5 layers or more until the covers close snuggly and tightly.
Hope this helps some of you out there.
You can buy a 760mAH battery at WWW.cellularbattery.com. First try to charge your exisitng battery and check if you have
battery connection problems.
This phone always drops the network,
paid 200 dollars for it , have to throw it
away. BAD MANUFACTURING QUALITY. Will
not buy a Sony Erricson again. Nokia or Motorola = quality manufacture.
