Hello from Bulgaria.
I got this phone a few days ago (for about 400Euro) and I can say that this is one of the best (if not the best) phone currently available! Of course W900 will be better, but it's not out, yet. W800 Is simply great, I prefer using it to play mp3 than my PC, cuz the sound is crystal and the "MEGA BASS™" system rulez! If you're looking for a great phone - that's the one for you. Or you can wait for W900 if you want, but W800 is the best currently :).
There are a few things I would like to know about this phone before I decide if I am going to buy it.
- Can you use MP3's as a ringtone?
- If you receive files by Bluetooth, does the phone save them on the Memory Card or on the phones internal memory? (on my current phone a NOKIA6230, I have to clear out my internal memory to receive big files)
Please can someone email me the link for hte w800 games pleaseeeeeeeee.
I just bought my phone a week ago, I just wanna know how to convert the wma files to mp3 .I tried using another converter, it just convert 60% of the song.....
Plz plz plz plz send me a link where I can download a converter that can convert the whole song! and if the registration code is required plz do me a favour and send it to me as well
Will really appreciate your help guys!
Have a great day!

Hey y'all, I've been wanting this phone for a while but with all that I've seen on it and after reading the W900i's review (see the W900i page for the link) I've come to the conclusion that I want this one even more (that's why I bought it yesterday from SE, lol!) But I still have a couple of questions for all of you that have had it awhile. One, does this thing have a tendency to get dirty because of the color? I have an MD player from Sony the same milky color and it got soooo dirty and very hard to clean. Two, I read a lot about the build of the phone that it's creaky and the screen scratches easily, is this true? Thanks in advance for your help.
Im in love of my W800 it´s perfect for my needs! like taking EXCELENT pictures, led light, radio, EXCELENT music, louder ringtones and speakerphone and nicest design. Last week I bought a Sandisk memory stick pro duo 2gb and the Flash MXE-60 (its an optional accesory) and WOW! Now im sure about 2 things: Nokia sucks and SE rocks !!!
Well, I've had this phone so now for a little over a month. And after seeing all the complains in regards to the video on this phone, I decided on purchasing Xilisoft (i blieve that'¿s the name) video and audio convertor for only $29...
And let me tell ya all, in the begining i was like, man! This was so expensive, now i come to check that i can change mp3's to mp4 and be able to place double the music on the phone, which is SO cool, and quality isn't changed in any way. Thus this is also good from changing 3gp videos to mpeg videos....
So far, many people have complained about video being 3gp not good format, well let me tell ya something, if you change a 1 MB video from our phone to mpeg format, this will go up to 33 MB or so, so for all of ya that were inquiring why SE decided to do this, well, you've got your answer....
And to all, stop crying about video being 3gp format, just send me an email and I'll happily share with ya all my registration code for xilisoft converter... just be sure to place on subject: mobile-review 4 convertor.....
So i can know what this is 'bout.
Cheers to ya all... this is the best phone ever!!!!!
hi!, i'm on the w900's review and i'm getting a bit confused: on the picture comparing s700 / w900, the s700 cmera's says 4.35mm, w900 camer's says 4.5mm, and my w800 camera's says 4.8mm... so w900 and w800 camera's are not the same, wich is better??!!
hay i have one question about, when playing mp3 music can phone displeyed - (display is off mode and seeing digital watch)- a name of band, song same like on a n-gage, if we know what i mean ok.d

Hey guys i found another diff btw k750 and w800 the w800 has a built in li ion battery k750 doesnt. And to all the people out there if you like music take w800 not d600 want something that looks like d500. Here in south africa d600 and 500 are common .Cheers
wat up guys im just wondering whether i should get this phone or look elsewhere. i would be mostly using it for the mp3 player and the camera/video recorder.(really think it looks class tho) any suggestions? cheers

i am planning to buy this fone..plz temme pros n cons of this fone in brief cuz i dunnu much abt fones n stuff.....do reply plz.....
hey guys! how can i archive my text messages with my w800i? are there ways to do this?
WOW what a awesome phone. 1 thing that bothers me is the battery. ive charged it the first time i got my phone, but then after 1 whole night of recharging, the battery still blinks (recharging). My question is when will the battery be fully charged?. This is an answer to one of the questions, you can extend the length of the video recording if you change the video size to 176x144 which is the high quality video, that way you can record videos for more than 30 seconds. hope this helps.
Been surfing more and stumbled to this:
This is a site for softwares compatible with sony ericsson phones.
Including in the softwares is the theme editor/creator which is really cool.
Just read about this. this is for those that don't know this yet.
W800 users (well pretty much sony ericsson users) can now synchronize their phone with iTunes. Here's the link:
just copy and paste this link
Its really cool that i have found this. More features for this phone for us!
well maybe the bluetooth problem is from the phone itself (hardware problem)... but i will try to update my firmware very soon...
other than this the phone is great...
Gripe No 2 ( The 1st was the .3GP extension on video clips..Mediaplayer was perplexed)
Try a rubber joystick next time (like the Nokia 7650) Fingertips don't work, only my fingernail... TOO FINICKY! I slid a plastic sleeve over the joystick to lengthen it by 2mm & now it's a lot better
