I had this phone for seven years, from 2003 and until this year. How many phones nowadays are going to last for seven years? Very few. So as far as durability goes, I put this phone on the top with the Nokia 5110. I'm sure my phone kissed the ground countless of times, but it always worked fine afterwards. The buttons are big, but lacks grip. Whether you like this or not depends on individual taste, I guess.
There are some problems with this phone, though:
1.) It has very little phone-memory, so you will constantly delete MMS/SMS/notes to make space for new ones.
2.) The camera is *very* picky on ambient light, and the camera lens gets dirty pretty quick. It is difficult to keep the lens clean, and it has no protection shutter.
3.) After turning the phone on, it uses about 20 seconds to load your contact list. This happens even if your contact list is stored on the phone instead of the SIM-card.
If you just use your phone as a.. phone, I recommend this one. That is, actually calling people, and sending SMS messages. If you want extra peripherals and applications/games, look elsewhere.
I just bought a Nokia N900, since the battery in my T630 finally died. I doubt my N900 will last as long as this one. I give the Sony Ericsson T630 three out of five stars, taking its features and age into account.
This is one of the best phones relative to 2003 year. I've been using it for 3 years and didn't have any problems with it. Don't accuse it because it was 2003 and today is 2010, for those times this phone was a perfect decision!
i have sony ericsson t 630 bay in italy but have a question he have software of TIM mobile and dont work with others sims to enter in internet how can delite this software? thnx is a good phone
I have this for 4 yrs and I never had problem on it. Always loved SE eversince, but I just bought S312 and I'm disappointed.
I've always loved the older SonyErics and after I upgraded from a T610 to this, I've never looked back. I've had 5 phones since this has come out and my T630 is still my backup go-to phone. It's fast, light and small, plus looks a lot more elegant than most of the newer phones now.
I have used this phone ever since it has been introduced.It is really a strong model.Cant see it better dayz
why it cant access to internet even there is configuration settings already and my apn address is correct also.
i liked this mobile good quality, took good pictures, good sounding ringtones. overall good build quality
I've used this phone for many years and is one of my backup phones now. I love the look of it, especially the back and the clear keys. It's appearance looks more stylish than many current models of cell phones.
This was a good phone. Actually my second phone. Camera was a bit weak but for 2003 enough. After 2 years using and working as a construction builder it finally found its end. When it was -20c outside Nokia phones would get extremelly slow but not this one. Worked quick allways. One thing that still amazes me. There were ever no dust under the screen. EVER. Now I have been using Se k750i and display gets dusty. Miss that phone. I think I'll buy it someday for fun.

I love this phone. Yeah, its camera is weak, it doesn't play mp3s and so on... but for me its design is very sexy and I just can't find any celly, that I would fall in love with so much.
