erm... i want to buy this SE Vivaz... but the comment that i had read make me so confused... i'm not sure enough if this phone is good or not... but from the comment, it seem that this is a worst phone... could please som1 explain about this phone in detail..
I have had my vivaz pro now for about a year. My first disappointment was when I transferred my contacts from my sony phone I had used for the past 3 years. They came out scrambled and with many repeats. Some information was assigned to other contacts. I had to edit the entire list taking quite a few hours. The Sony ericsson site offered a solution -- transfer my data from my previous phone to my Vivaz pro phone via their site. Same results
The second disappointment was when I learned it did not have voice activated dialing. I search the web for an app which would work but all the symbian apps which were compatible with Nokia s60 v5 phones would not work on the vivaz pro. This made the phone almost useless became most of my outgoing calls required voice dialing due to my profession.
The third frustrating disappointment was when it started hanging and crashing. I had to send it in for repair. When I got it back all my downloaded apps were gone and all my other info was gone. When I tried to restore it from the Sony-ericsson web site where it had been saved the contacts came back scrambled and the calendar and other info did not restore. When I tried to restore it from the suppied app, I experienced the same problem.
Many s60 v5 apps will not work or even install. Do not buy this phone if you need voice activated dialing or want a true s60 v5 experience instead stick to a Nokia s60 v5 phone which has all the same features without the incompatibility issues.

immy, 12 Aug 2011Hi I bought Vivaz Pro 5 days earlier, Initially it Wi-Fi was working perfectly, But since last... moreMost common problem is people dont use a unused channel on the router. with pc download inSSIDer which scans all 13 channels find one in the middle with no-one on IE if 1,6,11 The common defaults are cluttered with yours on one of them as well then if 2,3,4,5 are free use 3 or 4 get a channel to yourself & the phone wont be stuggling to communicate. its radio interference on same channel that causes errors & slow wifi & poor old phone cant connect.

Hi I bought Vivaz Pro 5 days earlier, Initially it Wi-Fi was working perfectly, But since last 3 days it is not connecting. Giving message no network found, Even it shows the list of networks available. Please respond if you know its solution.
i hav been using it since 1 year.. Dear users, dont forget to update your phone using the update engine or pc companion. i know it lacks cool apps and HD games. well, u can get it from
now my phone is loaded with 6 HD games and around 27 cool apps.. i know there are limitations in this phone but you can overcome it and making it awesome by installing things... its user experience is awesome after installing SPB shell etc. have a nice experience with your phone.
Dont forget to restart your phone once a day for optimum performance! it frees the RAM memory as there are some programmes which keeps on using the RAM and then it gets overloaded aftr 2 or 3 days and the phone starts to hang.
have a nice experience..
I Had This Phone For A Month In That Period Its Spent 18 days on SE Service Center When It Came Back Flash Light And Auto Rotation Has NOt Worked I Have Submitted The Phone To The Shop Which I Have Brought The Phone They Said They Give A Replacement To Me..I Am Thinking Of Exchanging It With Nokia c7.........
trust me guys its not worth its money. I bought it last for 360 euro holy shit. No games no apps old menu type no password and it isnt a good touch phone too the only good thing about it its the keyboard, so i suggest u to buy a blackberry or even better save money for an iphone or if i prefer something better htc wildfire :)
plz can anyone advice me because i cant see the video that i record it says that i can't play sound and video and no mp4 or mpg or 3gp why ? i cant play this kind of video
shakil, 22 Jul 2011Which one is best: Nokia C6-01 Or Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro Or Anio ??? Please suggest me. I wan... morehey there..nokia c6 is worse but c6-01 is far better than both c6 and vivaz pro..though it has no qwerty keyboard, but it is amoled capacity touchscreen instead of resistive..so it has better on the interface and nokia has ovi store just like an android market or apple store..this store would give you lots of apps and games..but if are the one who love lots of apps and games within a budget, i think u can try on android phone..it wound be fun ..good luck :))
I have used this DUD of a phone for # months and I have had it, It's full of glitches.I am very dissatisfied with this wetered down version of this symbian OS. Lots of limitations on what you can download due to most of the clients available out there are for nokias running symbian. No OVI market. How sad Sony Ericsson... This is very upsetting since Symbian is on it's last leg. Sony Ericsson What a rotten product, you should talk to guys like us for your R&D when making these handsets. 3
out of 10 for me...
Too bad it's a Symbian phone, otherwise if it's Android, I will get it straight away. It's seems to be a good fone
This is the worst phone ever. The phone is a complete disappointment. The operating system is hard to use and the updates does not help. My phone can't keep track of time, it loses 5-10 minutes every week. It ran out of battery once and i have been recharging it for a day now and it still wont turn on. I tried updating but the update is not working either, it fails at the installation section. Also i can't turn off 3G on this phone. With all my problems the support was of no help even the most simple problems like turning off 3G the steps on the support page was totally off. I am very disappointed and i have always been a Sony Ericsson fan but I've had this phone for only few weeks right out of the box and i think it might already be broken without even dropping it. I've been searching for a solution but there are a lot of people with the same problems and no solution. The Sony Ericsson people just tell us to update it every time and it never solves any of the problems. Sony has ditched the symbian phones and anyone who decided to buy one. Now were just left with dead weight.
As owner of VivazPro for 6 months. So far I rate it 50/50. Size is good for carry, screen is okay, camera is very good for picture but vidoe freez few seconds (at the begining ie. on the 3rd or 4th second right after capture mode kicked in) while recording video.
GPS is working fine, I have 4 GPS systems installed, they all working as expected just take a bit long to obtain Sat signal from time to time.
WIFI working but signal but strong. Reading is abit hard as due to its size, browser is crap.
What's bad ?...the screen protector begin to peel off, it seemed caused by hot Summer weather and I also heard, phone does not work when it is too cold either (if you are in emergency in Winter, you might out of luck...beware).
The installed sofatwares are all craps. They hided everything from the user, even my own simple text file that I created via their NOTE program, I just can not find them via their Organizer.
The O/S is crap so are those installed softwares and that is why Nokia/SE is soon out of business, they desired it.
