I have the exact same problems as the last person who writes here.
i also can't connect the phone to the pc as it tells me that it is an unknown device
Buyer beware, this is the worst electronic device I have ever owned. Here are the big issues.
The rubber peals off in just a few weeks.
It claims to be able to play AAC. What you don't realize is it is not capable of playing AAC in track order so no listening to albums as intended without creating a custom play list for each.
The supplied clip has detached itself from my belt several times.
The paint comes off easily.
The phone now turns off automatically if you shut the clam shell to hard.
I got the famous white screen of death within the first month of owning it.
Bluetooth connectivity seems to be inconsistent.
this phone haven`t a zoom on picture viewer it`s the bigesst disadvantage. camera is also not good pls do sumthing
From singapore. Camera sucks. No zoom. Blur image even though its 2 megapixel.
sharon: w810 is good but its like a old brick compared to w710. I think w710 is a lot better
there is no zoom after you take the pic.... and the spicers are not so nice..........
this phone haven`t a zoom on picture viewer it`s a big disadvantage
hi frenz!!! is this model supports 2GB memory slot????
plz reply me???
go get a w810 better. w810 is more tough, cam better sound better and w810 so much better than w710
hi i'm planning to buy this piece what do you guys suggest any other model which offers these features and one which has got lesser problems than this one???????
This phone is fantastic.I got it about 4 months back, the only problem there is , is, the original rubber casing started getting damaged in about a couple of months and peeled of a fortnight back, but SE replaces the same with a better quality front casing for free. So its cool again.
I have heard several people saying that the earphone jack experiences defectiveness after sometime, but I have not had that problem yet. gotta see.
all features are great of w 710 including its look. battery is creating a problem. as per the commitment of talk time of 10hrs, it hardly give a talktime of 2 hrs. Company should look into it.. Else the phone is fantastic...
with all the feedback around about its lousy physical build quality (AND THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE A SPORTY PHONE!!!)you'd the wiseguys at sony intentionally put in those with the inferior rubber gaskets so that they can earn a little more by having them wear out so quickly forcing the poor owner to have it replaced...pathetic
This is the most disappointing phone from ericsson since the r600. Just barely 6 months into using it (take note, not even subjecting it to the treatment by the female tennis player on its commercial), the rubber comes off. i also decided to use the fitness function by using the clip-lo and behold, the paint starts chipping off within a week! Lousy build quality! if it not for the fact that it can play wav files apart from mp3 and aac, i would've ditched this phone a long time ago!!!!
come on people w710 is great phone but the rubber problem does not make me change the just change the rubber ...... it was happened to me and i change it.... SE has fixed the probled in it and the rubber will not come off again .......... iam not gonna to chane this phone EVER.
does anyone know if you can replace the case with that of z710? cos black its nicer
You can sell it and buy W810 or W610. And i guarantee you that u will love these phones.
W610 is new and better more featured than W810i.Lg KG is fully loaded phone but doesnt live to our expectations.
