after having this phone for a week i love it, but.
Major problem: BATTERY LIFE, it sux really sux i watched a 1 1/2 hour movie and battery was dead... with a 2 sec warning, dead :( couldnt even turn back on to check for messages...
oh well i am just hoinh to have to buy another battery for those long road trips :D
Just my 2c
i've been using this W800 for more than a month now. i personally think that this is a great mobile with all the spec above, EXCEPT:
1.contact list is not so efficient, as if you wanna find name "john" you can only press J and press down to look for that name. i expect we can press J then O then H to limit down the names but it can't. so i suggest for user who need or have lots of contact list better don't buy this phone.
2.there are limits for your sms space, maybe 200? if i'm not wrong. it's not like other mobile which it can save the sms to the memory card, but this one is save on the phone itself. therefore it's not recomended for you who need to use lots of sms.
overall this W800 is a good phone except the 2 things i mentioned above, hopefully next time sony can think better about that as those 2 things are very crucial for a user like me. now i'm thinking to get a new phone.
hello ppl!i have my w800 for 2 weeks and it's great no regrets.the problem is that when I download clips in the pc and transform from 3gp to avi with Imtoo encoder I can see just about helf from the clip and after that it stops the image and I only hear the sound, can anyoane pls help me with this?????????? if U can help pls e-mail me or post here. thank you
to Ian Chow ,
search Imtoo encoder on download.com or google "mp3 converter". theres a couple out there.
defnitly get the w800i. i personally think that the color is more attractive. if u like listening to mp3 then, there u go, w800. it has more walkman functionality for ease of use. technically the w800 has more features than the k750.
Hi its me again. I got some problem viewing videos on my phone. I hav used Imtoo 3gp converter to convert my mpeg/dat files to 3gp. But the quality is poor n also video strucks in some intervals. I hav tried many setting but.... I know the processor cannot handle but as i heard from others that good quality video can be seen with smaller file size. Any decent converter available except from imtoo n xilisoft? plz email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Plzzz be fast. thank you.
it's me again...
i just wanna ask if anyone has any good converter from wma to mp3???
i'm looking for a converter that will convert the files and dun make the mp3 file too large...
i just need to know one thing everytime i turn my bluetooth on it tells me command error but bluetooth still works just want to know why does it come up with command error
Donno where u can get a charger,but just search with the local SE dealers.To get the memory card out,open the flap and just give it a gentle push,it'll come out.Hope i was helpful.Bye
i try to help other w800i owners as much as i can. i really love this phone. i have a black silicon case and i always take it out phone im sitting down cuz i just love its appearance.
ANYWAYS, the thing about the mp3 message tone is right. it only plays the tone for 10 sec. i havent searched far enough to see if this setting can be changed. i know that the mp3 RINGTONE can be set to a max 30 sec before it goes to voicemail.

Got my SE W800i just yesterday.Man!!!Wat a phone....It simply rocks.Seeing the picture of the phone on the internet I was very much depressed by the looks of it.But when I got the phone in hand it simply looked amazingggg with all that cream and orange and the WALKMAN logo on the side.Man,who said the phone looks to be made for the young alone????.Everybody old or young would love this beauty.I just love the camera,the sound,the screen and everything about this marvel.This phone gets a whole lot of attention where ever u take it.Just LOVE this phone!!!.Bye
i dont agree with the idea of playing SMS tone till end of song. primarily because in case you are unavailable or dont wanna see SMS now, then the song will play on and on and on..
I will say this is good work by SE to restrict SMS tone for 10 seconds...
Thumbs Up from Me..
This phone is just awesome. I have used many high end phones in Nokia but this phone beats in every aspect when compared to Nokia phones. I was planning to buy Nokia N70 but in the end i decided to buy this. I purchased this phone for 540Dollars [around 23000 INR] I am very happy with this phone. If u hav money, then but this phone. Dont think about others.
Adv- Light weight, decent looks, excellent camera, Deadly music quality, good screen and good FM quality. Very good earphones.
Disadv- Battery drains quickly and is not upto the mark as sony claims. Buttoms are a bit small. Some problems with the Disc2phone software while transferring mp3 files. No mpeg to rm/3gpp converter provided in the CD.
Any problems mail me at email@example.com
Overall a very good phone. Cheers!
i am just waiting for my phone i can't wait..i love it..it is an excellent phone.
Oh,i see then.
thanks alot to you LEVI!, you were really helping and i gusee i will be going with the W800i.ummm one more thing if you dont mind!, can we make the messege tone play longer than 10sec? this might be the only bad thing in this phone!.
dis pone is a rip off....message tone can only play mp3 file for a mere 10 seconds...compared to my previous nokia 6230 which can play until the end of the song for a message alert....gosh!!!sound quality is good,but dis really upset me....guys,any help????
i forgot to mention, w900 is selling for est $900 on ebay right now. RIDICULOUS!
for the unit that i bought, the battery life is awesome. no problem with losing battery life even when im playing a game or listening to mp3 and/or both! or when taking pix.
In the comparison with the k750i, this is better just because its branded as a walkman, which has a the option of just using the mp3 player.
In compareison with the w900 and w550, w550 is out of the question so we can eliminate that.
The w900 is just a newer version of the w800i. i like the w800 because i prefer its appearance compared to the slider. however, the w900 DOES have better internal memory. and it has EDGE.
i wonder if we (w800 and k750 owners) can "upgrade" our sofware/firmware/whatever you call it
I need you're help guys! i dont know which phone should i buy,K750i or W800i,and i am really scared after reading all opinions about the W800i,and i have heard about how bad the battery is and i am worried about that,so is the battery thing ture?
plaese help me as fast as you can because i am really sick of NOKIA and i want to chang becuase NOKIA lunchs! new phones every while and kill you're joy with the phone you have even if you got the latest one, one month or 2 and you will find a new one in the markit and thats what i dont like about NOKIA.
