This is by far the worst phone I've ever had. DO NOT EVEN LOOK AT THIS PHONE. It may sound appealing if you're into music but there are just too many problems accociated with this phone. I had the W760i and my brother had a W760a. Both phones are now in the garbage.
Here were the issues:
1. No flash + the camera is terrible (doesn't even let you zoom in high quality)
2. Headset/charger port breaks completely off or doesn't connect to the device.
3. After you lose service, the only way to get it back is through restarting your phone since it makes no effort to attempt to find service on its own. It doesn't give you any audible notification that you lost service. It simply says "no connection to network". You may have people calling you all day and it wont go through. So you would have to look at the phone every 10 mins to make sure you have service.
4.Every program runs slowly. The phone freezes every 2 minutes.
5. Buttons are hard to work with. They are flat, closely placed to one another and require some labor to press down on.
6. As with an slider, this phone has trouble sliding up and down if some dirt or sand gets in there.
Mapu, 26 May 2009Yep, it is dust on the screen. Take it to your provider for a simple cleaning or just get used... moreyes you can. What you need is the datta cable which mostlikey came with the phone. And the "Sony Ericsson PC Suite" There it will have an option under tools called internet connection.
Hope that helps

Yep, it is dust on the screen. Take it to your provider for a simple cleaning or just get used to it XD.
I was wondering, i've read there's a way to use this phone as a modem for my pc but going through the configuration i also found a way to connect your cell phone to the computer and use the conection of the pc to get to internet. Has anybody used it?
Has anyone experienced what looks like dust particles getting in under the LCD display screen? If it is not dust, then perhaps it is something breaking off inside the screen?
I have the for less then a month and the phone freezes and reboots for it self...... This started happening about the day i brought it home. i took the phone back and the place i brought it form updated the firmware.... the day i collected the phone it keep freezing and rebooting.... it look like it got worse..... also the firmware seem very sluggish compared with my bro's phone (sony ericsson w580i)........ overall the phones kool because of the accelerometer but the trouble is not worth it.
Anonymous, 30 Apr 2009i can play the song in the phone but can not use it as ring tone. why? can some one help?i check with sony ericsson and find out it is the software problem. as per them the software only allow up to 600k for ringtone. and no other software for this phone. so this really dispoint for the ringtone only. other than that the phone is good
ChrisB, 18 May 2009Does unbranding the phone void the warranty?That depends on how this is done. If you let your operator do the unbranding (the legal way) the warranty won't be violated, but if you use methods like flashing the phone's software you have modified the product and you'll loose your right on warranty.
Ridwone, 14 May 2009Can anyone tell me that how does the sense me work?and do the phone support shake control as m... moreTo use Sens Me you must let a program (that comes with the phone or you can download it) analyse your tracks which will put the tracks in a diagram with moods. After that you open the Sens Me menu where you can see the tracks as dots on the diagram. Even though it works far from perfect (according to the program my saddest song is a upbeat lovesong, go figure) it's still an interesting feature.
And the phone does support shakecontrol but I find it easier to use up-down buttons on the side which have exactly the same functions (which makes the shake-gimmick kinda useless).
Jazz, 15 May 2009Is there a way to lock the key pads using a number lock? If so, please let me know how to do i... moreNo there isn't but there are two better ways to lock the keypads: 1. you can turn on the auto-lock which will lock the keys after a few secs of inactivity 2. you can just slide open and close and it will be locked. You can't get more simple than that.
I use this phone almost 1 year. I love all about this phone, but sometimes hang when I want to make a call and turn off automatically. very disappointing...
Is there a way to lock the key pads using a number lock? If so, please let me know how to do it?

Leo, 22 Apr 2009Hi all, as i know this W760 is 3G phone. but i found only 1 camera, right?It supports only HSDPA providing 3g not video calling.
Anonymous, 30 Apr 2009how was w760 perform??anybody have any recommend??Really a good phone.screen clarity is pretty good.user friendly mobile.camera good.light weight.only bothering thing is it takes a bit moment more after dialing a number for calling.otherwise it is good n very hardy set but price should be lessened a few.
