AWESOME PHONE!!!! ya after sometime the rubber might come off .. has NO malfunctions ive had it for more than a year and the rumors about it are wrong it works perfectly fine instead more than fine... makes perfect videos, 2MP camera result is awesome... it's BATTERY life is awesome!!! ive got a huge collection of songs, pictures, videos on it, FM reception is exceptional... it's worth buying has all the features anyone would look for in a cellphone all other cellphones are always missing some or other feature but this one will not let you down but ya it's small if u dont like small cellphones then well thats a different story i like the arm/wrist band that comes with it plus audio output wire that i hook up with my sony deck, its a full package! including the headphones ofcourse ... one thing i would although advice is that if ure really into bass and powerful music then get HPM-75 headphones would do even though the ones that come with w710i are excellent but HPM-75 are powerful!!!
I have this phone for a month now. There are some slight peeling in the bottom part of the rubber but nothin serious. I like this phone, it performs well but not as quick as my previous W810. I upgraded to the latest firmware and I have yet to encounter any major problems. The video player is good, it can play QVGA resolution mp4 @ 24 fps. I tried it by converting youtube videos @ vixy.net, it works fine in W710. That's amazing coz the same video files doesn't work in 6233. It can also play 6233 videos recorded @ CIF resolution. It doesn't play VGA though and can't play in fullscreen landscape mode like W610.
I've had 3 phones in the past 3 years and I gotta tell you this phone rocks , really it does
I noticed a lot of the comments complaining of the phones malfunctions are from users whose first language is not English. I've already ranted about how much I hate this phone but mine is also a w710c. Are the malfunctions only happening on the w710c?
Its good for its sound and mega bass is good only with head phones.. Rubber peels off... front display went haywires in6 months and set right when mother board replaced :~(. doesnot play AAC.. reminders and notes alerts are factory set only and no liberty to customize. For that price it is better to avoid this fone and go for better model.
i really love this phone, this is the perfect phone for me, but unfortunately the rubber peels off after 8months,i tried to find shops where i can buy the same rubber, but i found nothing...so sad,ihave to change it another new phone.
I so agree with all the comments I have read so far. The rubber of my phone came off a month after I bought it. What made it worst is that everytime I go to a Sony Ericsson shop the only thing that they can tell me is that they're still waiting for a replacement to be delivered. I have my phone with me for about 11 months now and they still cant fix it. Im so getting rid of this next year.
hi if the rubber comes off, does this mean the external music keys will no longer work?
I love this phone.. I bought it because of it's flip and it's music. love the design.. although not the best design. but after 2 months I do disappointed.
but so many problem since I buy it. the rubber peals off after a month, software crash. the phone freeze after a month with the famous white screen. turn off by itself... 3 times service at SE.. once they change for new device.. but it getting worse. freezing problem every time the battery getting hot.it's bad. I would change the phone today.
i get w710i but i change it 3 times and its work for 60 - 90 day only after that problems ,
its unsuccessful phone & its bad
In reply to the last person's question... I posted a few spots down complaining about how terrible this phone is.
This particular problem happened to me as well but I didn't list this problem for one reason. I bought the w710c the very first week it launched and was using China Unicom. This problem only happened to me for the first week or two and never occurred again. I thought it was a problem that was addressed and fixed... apparently not.
One more reason why this phone sucks.
Hi all.I have a problem with w710i.i bought this phone about 2 months ago,before this problem when somebody call and i don't answered(missed call)the name of the contact appears on the activity menu,but now it's doesn't appear and tell that no missed calls.please help me
I have W710i little more than 6 months and I must tell the phone sucks...software is allways chrasing,phone goes crazy from time to time,flipes modes...crazy phone but it's only good becouse the sport programes,that is pure 10 ;)
Hi, this is my phone since May 2007 and I love it! It is a cool phone for an outdoor going person like me. The MP3 is cool and I fell the phone accidentally 3times and is very durable and working. That is what I like most in SE phones! The battery lasted longer than the other SE phones I have.
I guess this is one of the most unsuccessful walkman phone coz it has many problems.
I tell u better not buy this and buy something else. Like T650,W610,W910,K850,W960 or few Nokia fones.
I hate its cranky and delicate calm. One of the worst.
This mobile works very well with no problems. Battery life will depend if you fully charge it the first time before use!Videos can be misty but might due to lens being dusty. PC does not allow SE data for unknown reason. Best unbreakable mobile is the Nokia 6250. Wish someone would make a new version
