i got sony ericsson w800i phone, it had the software problems, black screen came out from now and then... once it got black screen it lost the ringtone... i missed lots of calls just because this problems... once it start ringing, it changes the ringtone itself, very wired....
This question might have already been answered lately, but having to read through 73 pages of posts would be a little much to find the answer. So does this phone get good reception in the US? I don't really live near any large metropolis, and I read somethin about it not getting good reception since it doesn't operate on 850mhz. I'm new to this so I don't know what to think. Thanks.
try www.myw800.com you might find some themes and wallpapers, but i dun think you can find the game, maybe u will find some of them in the forum.
i'm afraid but there are very very few free games/application for this model coz it's a sony ericsson (bcoz developers are not paying too much attention to SE unlike Nokia bcoz of it's market share!) no it can't play avi files only 3gp and mpeg4 files. no chance 4u to install smart movie coz it only works on symbian OS phones! those are the limitations that i really can't live without that's what is stopping me to buy this phone! aside that great phone! as for the mp4 converter u may try this: http://www.mymusictools.com/download/mp4-converter/
for games can go here:
Sincerely,I used to be Nokia&Samsung fan but sinceI started seeing the adverts for W800,I started falling in love with SE.Apart from the enhanced memory,can anybody tell me if the camera and video functionality outshines that of Samsung D500 & Nokia 3230 which I currently use.Does W800 come with Bluethoot or simply,what assessories does its pack contain especially in the Nigerian market.Responses are being earnestly awaited.
hey ppl.. i'm planning to sell my d500 and buy W800.. can anyone tell me if i can put mp3 as the message tone ? if not? how can i ?..
can this phone store message in memory card? want to find phone that can do so (like nokia and siemens). but as far as i know motorola, samsung, SE cant do that. any suggestiON?
i need help . can sum one temme sum good site / forums to download free games / software for w800i ..also i wanna know can this cellfone play movies in avi format ..like nokia fone needs to have smart movie player to play it ..is there an software for this fone ....also i need a software to convert video files to mp4 format !!!
W800 is not nice....shape like an ordinary SE phone and it is not dynamic..like UI is not symbian......boring how long will u listen muzic??....so many things to do..go 4 some dynamic series 60 phone and buy an apple ipod ....
Hi thank you for your best design & accessories, but i want more information of its manual. have a nice time.
Hi!Could anyone tell me how I could know the Mobile firmware and where I could find the last firmware?And do A/S services include this one in iran or not(the last question is for iranian friends/owners ofcourse!)
Hey everyone! I'm happy to say I have finally upgraded my contract and got this phone today! I was still apprehensive at the store but my worries have disappeared!
I haven't looked at everything yet but I can safely say it's a great investment, seeing as I previously had a 8310... This phone has surpassed my expectations! And for all Nokia users still thinking of upgrading to this phone, you guys have nothing to worry about!
Very fast UI
Cool colour scheme
Excellent ear phones
The list goes on!
The shutter sound, as others have mentioned, is a bit annoying but bearable. I have tried putting it in Silent and it's still there. Must be the firmware... But who cares, it a great phone and I totally recommend it! Go and get one! :D!
thanx for the answer. i know that the quality won't be like on my computer but i saw a sample 3gp movie on a samsung and it was ok for a phone. i just hope that it would be just as good or even better on the w800. thanx again
the answer to your question is yes; provided that u hv a memory stick large enough to store your converted movie. And when converting the movie, say from divx or wmv to mp4 (to my knowledge, the phone can only play mp4 and 3gp format), you have to set the video size to 176x144. i've tried some other size but that caused the phone to only be able play audio only (maybe someone out there can advise us other correct size for the video). btw, the video playback for this phone is just average. so dont expect too much.
but wait i have another question... if ever i have the phone already. does the simcard i bought from t-mobile wud work? what does the unlocked gsm meant? so u mean the one i ordered might be locked? coz i ordered it from the main site of sonyericsson. hmm... hoping for ur answer folks. thanks in advance!
for RICHARD and EDISON:
thank you guys for answering. now i know... :D by the way i just ordered it online hehe! im excited hehe! thanks again! its my first time to ask here, thats why im happy coz i didnt expect that anyone wud really answer me.well, this is real! lol. ok bye!
I got my phone from the “Sony Style” store in the USA. It had a few issues. I called to Sony Ericsson Tech Support. OMG, according to Tech Support, there are other versions of the firmware in the W800i--not authorized by Sony Ericsson. The menus in my phone were not the same as the menus in the phones coming directly from Sony Ericsson Online. Some of the advanced menus are simply not in my phone. I was told to return the phone, and to get one directly from Sony Ericsson--as these were the only phones Sony would guarantee to be correct. i.e. don’t buy an unlocked version; buy a version that comes directly from Sony Ericsson that has all functions enabled.
So, if you are having, “Bluetooth” headset support issues, SMS “Validity Period” issues, problems accessing WAP/Internet with your service provider, … it is due to the firmware.
Oh, and to the people on this site that are telling the readers that the K750i and the W800i are basically the same. That is not so--even according to Sony. Call them and ask! Also, I’ve used both. The Orange phone has--among other things: a more durable plastic--i.e. Walkman strong, different shaped buttons, a studier case--due to the lack of the sliding camera door--which causes the K750i body to flex and squeak, 512mb memory stick, Walkman headphones, … So, if you don’t mind the orange color--i.e. Walkman brand--the W800i has $100 of extras.
hello everyone. i like this phone very much and i think i will buy it very soon. i have one question though: does anybody know if u can see any movies on this phone? exept the ones u make yourself with the phone. i mean somethig like a divx movie, or other file formats, or if u can convert a divx file into something else and watch it on the phone while u're on a train or something like that. thanx all.
Ok, I just saw a picture of this phone that its diferent(it is not a light reflecting) on the back of the phone, if you give me an email I can send you the picture so you can see the difference betwen colors and a circle at side of the word "ZOOM" of the camera that is to notice to see, one is orange and the other is grey. and if you see the back color is grey to, belive me, Im not joking.
You say that the diffenerce is the software, so I have a question, I saw comments of users that they upgrade the software of the Se k750 and when they connected to the Pc it will recognize as an W800, is it true? because if the difference is just software I will buy the Sek750, Im asking this because of the color, the w800 looks like a toy for me.
