Ebay has them lol. i just bought one for 150$ with 25% off from live.com cash back.
i hate sony ericsson's designs for their earphone. the buttons can be agitating since they are medal-like materal but if you are a part time texting person, this is good for you. Holding down the button for a long amount of time will dent your fingers. it also kind of hurts too! i wish they would have an easy access to unlocking and locking on the side of the phone (like the w600i). FYI video quality is horrible. Camera is mediocre for a 2Mp camera.
there are a lot of good things about this phone;
for alarm, you can choose any day of the week and apply any music file as alarm tone.
Flash light is a nice touch to the phone.
while listening to music you may change the song via the volume rocker (wish they had lumps on them so i can change it by feel) you may also play and stop with a dedicated top side button.
Battery life is awesome. i was playing music through earphones (approx 4-5hours?) only 25% battery used.
you may also customize the middle circle buttons (top bottom left right) to most applications and what not. if that is not enough, there is a shortcut button (right side button inside the half circle) which you can add more for easy access.
Phone feels really solid and durable. this a good choice to choose from within the w series!
yes i had him also and its a qwonderfull and very goofd phone but he is broken nowand i want a new one but i search anywher and everywhere and i can't find a W610 and thats not nice !!!!!
Dip, 13 Oct 2008It's a total FIASCO! 1>The keypad is very cumbersum. 2>During sms writind no option to enter... moreim not an expert in se's but so far i am satisfied with it. ive been using se's for the past 5 years. now i have 6 (t68,t230,t630i,w800i,w660i and k800i) though t68 only has ericsson as its brand but t68i is. so far all of them are still working.. and about the virus? just use a pc (with an updated virus scan) to scan the memory stick using a card reader. but don't reformat it using ur pc. usually u'd get a warning if a virus hits ur phone. just open the "other" folder in the file manager and delete it. peace
This is by far the best phone that I have ever owned! Would not change it for any other. Have not found one to top it yet. The ONLY downside to this phone is that the battery could have been better, but for such a cute phone, who cares.
Could this phone hold a 4gig memory card and what is the capablity size of memory. Thanks
it is a real nice phone and i could say that and i dont even have one as yet
Reading comments about separate headset of HPM-70, HPM-77, HPM-82, HPM-85, I bought a new handsfree HPM-82 for my cybershot-walkman phone. I got it in a plastic coated cover not in any finished box. It was lebeled made in china. It is most same as it looks in various seller's web. Sound quality I am getting is good but I am not too excited as I expected. It cost me only Tk. 700 ($10) which is very much lower than the other countries. The average price on the net is $35-$40.
Now I am confused whether I have bought the original as produced from SE. I can listen music, music controller (call receive, play-stop, up-down volumn) works fine. But the radio reception is very bad. Almost no channel can be heared well. Whereas the original supplied with the K550, is awesome for radio as well as music.
Can any user of HPM-82 help me telling the FM music quality through it? Where it was made of? Its loudness compared to the original headset supplied with the phone? Please reply.
Thanks advance for your reply.

610 fan , 18 Oct 2008how do u get songs from i tunes to ur phone ?? thanks !!If you are using a mac, the easiest and safest way is to
a. pair your phone to your mac via bluetooth.
b. create a folder on your desktop where u can drag the files from iTunes to.
c.then through the bluetooth file transfer app. (upper right hand corner, next to spotlight) select your phones, hit send and BOOM!
but be prepared to sit there and manually hit ACCEPT for every song.
Being a longtime and faithful Nokia user, it took a extreme leap of faith to purchase this phone. I was highly impressed with phone #1, until it died on me the same day I got it. Whether it was caused by a manufacturing defect or from an iffy usb connection between it and my Mac, I'll never know.
Forget my qualms about the first phone dying, after really getting to use it, I have to say that it is a fantastic little phone. I would agree that the keys are a lil funky, but I've found that its remedied easily enough by putting it in a case, for some reason the plastic covering the keypad makes it significantly easier to use than without.
The really key thing for me when purchasing a phone is its signal reception (here in The Bahamas... our cell service isn't too good), and so far this has been more than comparable to any of the nokias which I have used and certainly better than any junk Motorola that I've seen.
The camera is decent, though not spectacular... but with me being a pro photographer I naturally dont expect great things from my phone camera. It is good for what camera phones have always been intended... taking quick snapshots.
The walkman player is great, it doesnt have a whole lot of customization or features but that has proven to not be 2 bothersome to me. The included noise-cancelling headphones are really a treat, though I just wish they hadnt designed them specifically for use with the headset, as without it.. well the headphones come up a lil short in the length dept and no one I know wants to wear their iPod as an earring.
one feature I discovered which I hope to never prove useful is the SOS signal. There is an option tucked away in Organizer that will either turn on the dual LEDs for the camera at full power or will flash them in the international distress signal of SOS. For those of us who are boaters, you never know when you may need it.
My only real qualm about this phone is the battery life... but such is life
