I've started using Ericssons when the first models were released. Those were almost like bricks you could talk to people with. The brand has more or less stuck with me and i've been very happy with the phones of this brand.
Now my better half has this model. I've gotten the newer G502 and i can make a slight comparison. While both are great, G502 has a slightly better screen resolution, finer text and longer standby time. This model, V640 is also cool to have - unless you don't want to constantly connect to internet; the right softkey is hardwired to internet connection and you can't change the shortcut. That's the only major weakness of the phone. If any of the makers read this, you might consider a better softkey adaptibility; not all want to surf the internet and most of us like to have customised shortcuts. I was lucky, G502 has a different softkey configuration and just accesses the phonebook menu. Overall, V640 is a solid, good and reliable product.
sony ericcson its so damn good, will stay with this brand my whole life
My phone displayed 'charging error'while charging, then after plugging it in again, wouldnt charge, tho it looked like it was [with the batt indicator flashing]. Luckily it does charge thru the USB cable. Its only 6 months old! Any advice?

Anonymous, 09 Sep 2008How many days last baterry in standby or little callswith little calls & some texting the battery lasts me about 4-5 days
It is a great phone. It's cheap, it has many features, including track ID which is super!! In just a few seconds he can tell u the artist, the song and the album u are listening from radio TV or any other source. I also have K810i and yes it is a better phone but V640 is very smart and very cheap. And about Nokia - I've seen a review which - He said that Sony sucks, well then please try to remove the battery from a Sony Ericsson in order to switch the sim card, and try the same thing with a Nokia and u'll see that the phone resets each time u remove the battery! The Sony E - Doesn't! Also try to back up all u-re contacts from you're phone on you're card (for instance wen u go to a service they tell u if u have a back up for the contact book, what can u do?) - If u ave a Nokia, u need to install the phone software connect it with a PC back up contact book then go back to service - With Sony all u need to do is Go to Advance features on Contact Book Back UP to MS and in a few seconds the problem is solved. Not mentioning the fact that usually Nokia is more expensive on their equivalent from Sony.
Ive had this phone for a few months and it works well but now the reminders only show when the phone is on even with the appropriate choice selected
Anonymous, 03 Aug 2008does it take standard headphones?you can plug in a head/earphone jack into the supplied cable especially designed for that reason
Sony Ericsson sucks.no good service for their devices !V640 is the worst model they have made so far.camera sucks , media player sucks , phone restarting all the time.Nokia 5320 is much better
