er, 30 Jan 2009Could You clarify: - Is Wayfinder Navigator subscribtion payable service? - While using W7... moreWayfinder's maps are stored on external servers and downloaded when requested, so as with Google Maps. All route computations are done on external servers and not by phones which is logical given the low processing powers of phones. It is so because Wayfinder is a turn by turn voice guided navigation and roads closed, roads open, and traffic density changes... in short, all these data must be in real time. This is the reason everytime you open the application including Google Maps, your phone automatically connects to the internet. With W760, you will have a 3-month trial period of Wayfinder, this is the time you will know whether your GSM service provider supports it. After the trial period, you have to subscribe to Wayfinder. For Google Maps, it is free, but your GSM service provider tariff will apply for the internet connection.

Arif, 27 Jan 2009can anyone please tell me whether it is a cybershot phone?I guess we can tentatively assume the following letter codes SE phones are using: C is for Cybershot, or camera focused phones. W is for Walkman, or music focused phones. X is for Xperia, or high-end power house phones. K is a balance of Cybershot and 3G all-around phones. T is an all-around phone. That is only my observation on SE phone letter codes and may serve only as a guide.
Arif, 27 Jan 2009can anyone please tell me whether it is a cybershot phone?It is not a Cybershot, the K850 is:)
Since W760i is a HID (Human Interface Device)protocol compliant, you can control Windows media player, your desktop, and even use as a presenter... all remotely from your phone over bluetooth. At this phone's price range which is at the middle to low bracket... you get more what you pay for. This wonderful phone was initially marketed as a Walkman phone... but it turned out more than just a Walkman. Beneath this phone's simple looks... is an array of high end features...

It seems to be the most common complaint with 760 users and i believe its bcoz the phone is unstable.
After struggling with the problem forever i finally gave my phone to the service centre (Bombay, India). They have my phone since the 13th of Jan and i don't know when i'll be getting it back. They claim its a hardware problem and need to replace the motherboard, but with the number of similar complaints i've seen on the 760, I'm sure its an issue SE is struggling with. Currently I'm using a Nokia 3315 and finding the simple pleasures of life again.
XX, 25 Jan 2009can this phone upload pictures from and to the computer?Yes, you may transfer pictures/videos from/to the PC via bluetooth or USB cable. This phone can even be used as a modem to connect your PC to the web. Or if you like, you can control your PC mouse using this phone via bluetooth.
