I got my phone last Saturday from T-mobile. The American version is TM717. I got the Lucid blue color which is nice. This phone has been advertised as a "girly" phone but it is not. It is for everyone.
Live RSS feeds when phone goes Standby(COOOL!!!)
Nicely spaced keys
Threaded SMS(feature seen on Blackberry phones)
Speedy 3G(1.4mbps down/384kbps up)
New set of animated cute images for SMS composing
Location tag option when taking pictures
No separate camera button
No separate Media button
External Speaker volume a bit low
No TrackID feature
You have to go through a lot of menus to be able to turn on speakerphone
Plastic back/battery cover
Overall, I love this phone. I am tempted to get a touchscreen but I prefer simplicity.
Jeniverre, 30 Mar 2010Hello guys, thank u so much for ur answerz, it really helpz me a l0t on deciding which one sh0... moreI know how you feel!!! I love my S.E. W595, Nokia 6303, S.E. T715 (which is what I am using at the moment), then I like my Nokia 6500 slide, Nokia 5610, plus my S.E. W995. I can't seem to decide which one to use all the time!! My poor sim card does not know where it is coming or going!!!
I have been using this phone 4 just over a month i was really enjoying it 2 i liked it lots until it starting going flat and it turned it self off and now wont turn back on plus i was having a bit of trouble the last week with it not registering my sim card.
I would give this phone a 5 out of 10 maybe
Been using this phone for almost 3 weeks now. Very satisfied with it. The camera is ok. Of course the Cybershot series is a lot better. Speaker also very loud and clear. Battery life very good. Can lasts for 4-5 days before it need to be recharged.
Downside: I wish it has wi-fi. But it's not that I really need it. Other than that, it's good.
Hello guys, thank u so much for ur answerz, it really helpz me a l0t on deciding which one sh0uld be my pick and which 0ne sh0uld n0t.
I found all ur answerz are m0stly its downside and negative feedbacks of usage. So maybe i sh0uld av0id this unit and erase it in my list.
H0nestly, im stil stucked with 3 ph0nes, one is fr0m n0kia, the other fr0m samsung and LG. I stil cant just buy 0ne with0ut really having s0me nice feedback at all, but i can wait until April for a new ph0ne.
So anyway, again, thank u so much guys and i really appreciate ur help. Ü

It's meant to last for 400 hours standby, I have to recharge every 2nd day to stop it going dead. If i knew the battery life was this pathetic I wouldn't have bought the phone.
why not even one clamshell model never has autofocus- that is a big mistake - AUTOFOCUS MUST BE IN ALL SONYERICSSON MODELS - then SE will be no.1-- a friendly advice for SE managment - in a body of W710 put camera 3.2mpx-autofocus-xenon flash- led light -wlan - and you get the best phone in the world - and why volume key is no longer shortcut for letters when typing sms
Should this phone have conversations? Mine doesn't seem to have it, although it should do. Thanks.
I've been using this phone for three months now. My expectations were not really met like sound quality, camera quality, display, and internet access. For sound quality, it's not as loud as I expected (like other SE's, ex: W880). camera - not as clear as W880 (never had this phone but I saw some from my frnds) ; display..hmm..just okay, screen should've been a little bit wider for a calmshell with this size, and internet access-- I always thought it has wi-fi (because phones released recently has wi-fi), got a bit surprised whn I came browsing it and found out it doesnt have wi-fi. Howevr, this phone is stylish, (friends find it cute), light effects are cute as well, and memory capacity is really good (up to 16gb). Im thinking of buying a W880 even if it is not really a new one, beacause of the features. overall, this phone's good, but features should be a bit advnced (knowing that it's a newly released one). And, you can only use zoom when picture size (yes,size) is in VGA mode, but when you choose 1mp,2mp, or 3mp, zoom isnt available. And yes, it's not scratch-free but the surface is glossy, and the gesture control doesnt work always. (Shake control is even better). It would be better if this one has flash and a secondary camera (in front) for videocall. This one's really stylish though. :)

But other then that it's a good phone, the memory is better than my last phone, which is a plus, but you cant put a normal memory card in the phone, it only allows M2 cards.

I've been using this model and my whole glossy cover is scratched up real badly. Also, a bit of the pink colour is chipped off and i can see the resulting white light underneath. The speaker is quite ok. Could go really loud. However, the contact list takes a logn time to be able to access it. Same when you're trying to save a number.
Is this ph0ne n0t available in philippines?? It seems n0t available here in cebu, im searchng since m0nday in the malls but f0und n0thing...

I assume that its battery is reliable, am i right? And also i can install java apps and themes? But what c0ncerns me also is its durability. Is it really a scratch pr0of screen? And how about its loud speaker? Ü
