I have to back up point made by chris, the phone does switch off if you are trying to text and you press 112, i think the phone is a really good handset, i like the MP3 player (but it doesnt play wma or wav files which is disappointing) i dont know if anyone else has noticed? if you are playing a file there is no way of fast forwarding or rewinding, let me down a little, the phone has 3g capabilities so gives a very fast download speed, you dont get that on some newer phones, the camera i do think it could do with being sharper to say you can video call, it can leave the other person looking "bitty", but then again it was one of the first video calling phones, it is good quality when you think you get everything you need in one device (ie you dont need a cradle like one nokia i can think of), i think like many others that sony ericsson are definatley heading in the right direction, i look forward to upgrading but i think i will wait for the next SE video call phone. long live SE
got this sat at argos £199 in sale. Catalogue sale number 547/1115.did my usual first charge and did back to back video playing and got 6hrs 10 mins which is great.in my house its only 2g but 1 mile away is 3g.first impressions were good and continue,im using 1gb pro duo out of my k750i and all my vids and mp3s stored on it work great but the themes dont.This unit is decievingly lite at 6 grams less than motos v635 wich was on my list.i use stopwatch a lot and was even more elated when this had one.theres so much to do and ive only had an hour on voda live and heres my next suprise-the unit lets you download the videos unlike three its takes longer obviously but they are blocky free not like the unwatchable junk of2.5g.wat im saying is you can get the 3g quality video on 2.5g download super or wat.Also getting most stuff free for first month,the screen is crisp with variable backlite and vids and mp3s are fast forward and rewindable,ive never had this before on a fone.time to stop but its the best phone ive had in years,got k750i,mpx220,6630,e1000 on three,p900 and gx30 and o2x3 and spv500 and this fone id rather have its full of entertainment and got buisnessy stuff to.
But with this phone i can't play wma and avi file,can you help me to do something with my phone to make it play wma and avi file ??? (install software).....lolz
That is not true Chris!!I txt 112 or 119 and nothing happened!
FOR ANYONE WHO IS INTERESTED IN THAT PHONE here is a short review(I'm using it 3 months)
1st:Battary is superb!No other 3G handset has such a battary
2nd:Signal is great!!This device has an excellent gsm receiver and also the best 3G signal in the world!!
3rd:Very easy in use
4th:The screen is one of the best(Not as good as in Sharp,but still is one of the best)
5th:Camera is not great but is good.if K750 takes 10 to 10 in camera,V800 takes 7 to 10.That is because indoor pictures has noise.But the colours in general are very good.Camera is also rather sharp!
6th:The device is very compact,the flip durable and the quality very high(price is also high!!)
A good phone but i have knowticed a couple of bugs in the software/hardware...
when near a speaker the main screen turns off and the outer screen comes on... confused me for a while then relised it musta been the magnetics....
also txting... if you try to txt 112 through to 119 the phone shuts down and restarts after about 30 seconds
How many colours is the external screen? Only bit o info I can't find about this phone!
hey my external screen went blank too, just sent it to where you bought it, and they'll give you a replacement or fix it for you
internet/modem/flash drive/mp3 player/mp4 player. wat more do you need? my external screen has gone, just after 2 months but hey something was bound to go pearshape all can't be good!
Hi mate. The Sharp V902SH is the most most most AWESOMIST phone in the world!! I accidently sold mine to get this Sony Ericsson V802SE and im not happy with it!! And this sharp has Ipod quality MP3 sound!! Are you in NZ?? if so their is a cheep one on trade me at the moment either black or white. Plz reply
Thanks timmy. I am planning to buy a phone with mp3 player but no camera. Can u refer me to some of the cell phones.
My bleedin V802 is on its merry frickin way back to hong kong (good riddins!!) and is going to have the Z800i (australian software) put on to it. Ive been told that this is a good combination. And i think that the battery is good for a 3G phone. Don't but this phone a a V802SE!! get the V800 or the V802 with the Z800i S/W. and this phone maxes out at 1G.
I just want to know how much the maximum size of the expansion slot does this phone support?
Great Features, crap battery! Do not buy one of these phones if you like to use a phone as a phone.
Am i able to put the SE Z800 Software in this phone?? It seems to be more stable that my V802 SW that will not find a network at the moment!! Stupid phone.
just like to say i hav it and i dropped it on concrete road while i was standing with the fone in my hand and it didnt break i thought with all that technology sumthing wudda broke good strength
Hi, Yes it is a V802SE we have only just got this phone out today at exactly 9am . Thanks
In my memorystick there is a MP3 folder,but you can put MP3's in any folder you like.
Anyway,I have never seen the message"files are not drm protected".If a file is not drm protected,you can listen to it but you just can't use it as a ringtone.
This is common for all vodafone live devices.
Are you sure this is a V800?Maybe it is a 802SE(Japan version which not allow you,as the white paper says,to listen to not drm protected mp3 files).You better contact with SonyEricsson servise in your country.
