hi everybody.is the voice of onboardspeakers worse than k700?plz expalin.thx.
This is the worst and most expensive phone I've ever owned. I bought mine 4 months ago and I still curse at it daily. That's how bad it is.
So many bad stuff I don't know where to start...
1) Some basic phone 101 functions are not included. For example, if a friend sends you a text message to ask you the number of your friend John, on most phones you can access your "contacts" while writing the message, and get John's number automatically. I could already do that on my first phone back in 1997; but no such thing on this 400 $, 2005 phone. You have to remember the phone number or write it on a piece of paper and then type it yourself.
2) When someone who is not yet in your contact list sends you a text message, you should be able to use that message to save their phone number, right ? Wrong. On this state-of-the-art phone, you need to pretend to call then, then quickly cancel the call, then scroll through to your "called numbers" list, and from there you can save the new phone number.
Just these 2 things give you an idea of how well-designed this phone is.
More bad stuff:
3. The PC software is horrible and counter-intuitive. It will take hours for you to understand how it works and start transfering music to the phone.
4.The mp3 player software is awful to navigate in. Plus external buttons are badly designed and you sometimes jump to another song without wanting it, or start playing songs by accident while using the phone.
5. Random exasperating fact : I have a one Giga memory card and there is about 200 megas of free space on it. Yet every two days I have to spend time deleting text messages because the phone cannot save those on the memory card. And you can't receive new messages when the allocated "text message memory" is full. I can tell you, it's a great feeling to have to drop everything and chose some msgs to delete, in order to receive your new messages, all the while knowing you have enough space to store about 4 full CDs on your card.
There is more but I guess you got the message. Just don't buy this overpriced, underdesigned exasperating piece of...phone. I am going to post this review on a few sites, I've never done that before but I guess getting pissed off every day for 4-months deserves some retaliation.
i thinking how many percent its price would drop after the release of w810i, since its both almost has the same features.
I got sony ericsson w800 five days ago, I found it is fantastic in every specification, sound, shapde, responses, and a lot of things. Its memory is very wide to include all what I need. Just one things I hope to be added to this valuable mobile, it needs to add waves acception and to add more colors for the cover. best wishes Shahzad Jehangir, Kabul, Afghanistan

You have Problem with transfering file is because that your phone's firmware has bugs. I had that before and what i do is buy a card reader, all problems solved. Its not only because of te disc2phone software, drag n drop features might not going solve problem. Most users experiencing the same problem as you and what they do is buy a card reader or upgrade their firmware and its all good. Hope that helps..
Cheers *I still in love with my W800i!!
i juz got this hp yesterday. everything is juz so cool except i don have chinese language in this hp! i only have france and english. can i install chinese programme? any1 out there can help? thanks.
there is a special path on memory card. for audio: MSSEMC\media files\audio or \mp3
and pictures: MSSEMC\media files\image\
can just anyone tell me why that after i rip my mp3 inside and when i try to listen.. the file is lost... and also my picture... the disc2phone software is totally annoying..zz
I have no other way of putting this, this phone is the pits. I must have received a dud. It has more functions than any of my previous phones, but they either have the habit of not working at all, or starting up whenever. The camera shortcut connected to the lens opener activates itself constantly. At first I thought I was accidentally switching it on, but even when it just lies on my desk, the camera turns on. Turning it off to make a call is impossible. Internet and MMS functions do not work and neither does the walkman at times. On the positive side the battery and camera (except for the above problems) live up to expectations
hey ...ive had my w800i since November, but i feel like its missing something, does anyone know any good websites to download things from for my phone. if you do pl post them in an opinion or email me
its a verey nice phone but walkman function is worse compare to w550i which gv more loud volume
I got sony ericsson mobile w800 six days ago. I found it very nice, smart, delicate and has very advanced technologies. I try to tell my friends about its specification. just two things I hope you will add to make this mobile a unique one, the first is waves acception, and the second is cover colors.
