obviously the problem is not the phone but yourself... the review said it is even slightly better than the N90. there is the slight chance you have a defective one though.
k750i n w800i only difference is $$ / colour / design thats all!!!!
With regards to the color. I don't particularly like the color either...however, the decison that Sony made was easy to understand.
> It's a "Walkman"--and they are orange!
> It's a retro 70s color
> It's designed for a Target Market (People in their 30s or younger).
To add -
> The design and construction is more condusive to an active lifestyle or sports activities. (The K750i has a tendency to flex because of the sliding camera door; and the button are not as robust and firm.)
"Strange" ... are you joking? Verison and Sprint don't even use GSM. This phone is GSM, so Sony may not sell too many--especially considering it does not have the 850 freq. for Cingular.
With regards to the rest of the world. It's not been released in all markets; and, the US has the FCC and more restrictions.
In any case: The W800i is currently sold--in the US--unlocked and does not require a contract. Euro imports are more expensive than buying it directly from SomyStyle USA (Check Mobile City and Cellular Concepts). Plus, the Euro version has the wrong charger.
I think two extra weeks was worth the wait.
(This is only my opinion--I could be wrong)
It was easy to know when it was out. There was a countdown-timer on the SonyEricsson site for weeks. It was available when stores opened Friday morning.
All current SonyEricsson phones can be configured using the sonyericsson.com site--whether it's T-Mobile, Cingular, AT&T, Orange, 02 etc. It take about one minute to setup the phone. The settings are sent immediately via a text message.
= = = = =
Oh, people who are saying that the K750i and W800i are the same--have not seen them. There are several differences--including the firmware and construction.
Yo SE users in USA.
Seems strange but some people on this forum has been wondering when the W800 will hit the stores. In Europe it has been in the stores for a while. How come USA is so far behind the rest of the world in release dates?
sup olyana! i live in the USA and want this phone. howd u know it was out? so its out in tmobile huh and howd u do the settings for the wap mms and stuff.. just go to sonyericsson site? i want this phone too. or the d6oo or the Nokia N70, but i dont know. they all have their strengths. can u email me? email@example.com thanks
got a leather case to keep my w800 clean and tidy . krusell . on ebay the best case i have had on a phone to date ..
The W800i was released today in the USA. It has the T-Mobile Frequencies inside--900, 1800, 1900. I went to a Sony-Style outlet. The Sony Ericsson rep. was there in the store. He had both the K750i and W800i with him. He said that the construction--although not as pretty--of the W800i is much better. I.e. Better plastic and housing. I felt both phones in my hands. The buttons on the W800i are stronger. The body of the K750i is more flimsy--due to the sliding camera door.
Setup from Sonyericsson.com for T-Mobile USA setting took less than 1 minute. I.e. I did not have to call T-Mobile to make the phone work via WAP, MMS, SMS, EMAIL
MP3 Quality is Excellent--Better than my Samsung D500.
Bluetooth works Great--Equal or better than Samsung D500. Sync with two other phones and two laptops--with no problem.
Sound quality via the Sony HBH-300 Bluetooth headset is better than with D500.
Photos are much, Much, MUCH better than D500.
Battery Life is better than D500.
Standard - Walkman, Panasonic, Sony, RCA etc. headphones will work with this phone--via the included adapter.
Simple drag-n-drop MP3 files to “Memory Stick.” I.e. I did not have to install any software to load my MP3s.
Menu system is a bit confusing and not as intuitive as D500--but more to offer than D500.
FM Radio is weak--due to antenna in headset.
FM Radio cuts out--due to poor connection of adapter at bottom of phone.
Signal Strength seems weaker than D500--but I’m still unsure.
Menu / operating system is slower than D500.
Does not come with any holster/case.
Comes with only basic manual.
Did not find a complete manual on setup CD (no pdf manual)
With all that stated. It’s a mobile phone. And it needs to work first and foremost as a mobile phone. So, I’m still undecided if it has the call quality and ease of use of the Samsung D500. I’m speculating the D600 may be its match--or better.
hi to all malaysian...pls note that the retail recommended price by Sony Ericsson itself is RM1999 only, not Rm2229 like some store stated.. so what out!!! those stores a totally rip-off!!
the speaker is awsome. this phone is a must have . was on ebay today people are selling the sony ericsson neck strap ... limited edition . the chick in my local vodafone store had one round her neck i asked her how much for the cool looking neck strap . she said i will get you one out back .SIR.. as we have loads . yet people are on e bay stating that they are a rare item.........no what would i part with £10 +£2.something p&p.. open your eyes fellow ebayers...
What's with all the bashing about the colour of this phone? I personally am getting it because I love the colour

can i ask you all one thing, that is can the W800's camera be used after the phone has been switch off???
this handset is amazing its the best handset out.
K750 Owns w800 By Lookz n plus i got a 512mb for 40 bucks so its all good their both equal in quality also as they say both good phones the only major differences is the camera n mp3 if ur a music than ya 800 if ur a camera then 750 but overall their both the same the prices as i can say k750 was 600 then dropped to 500 then 400 then staying at 350-400 now but today 800 came out and so its 600 still it'ss drop the same all phones drop styll 8800 so expensive ahha yet i said enough I love my k750!!
i just bought my w800i today and was wondering if it playes wma files if not what should i do to make it work
wow dude this phone really rocks me n the mp3 blast my ears off n i really liking this baby n the camera rocks,mp3,radio n what can i say about this wonderful phone n u people seen the camera compare to nokia n90 n this baby the winner n in s,pore this baby selling like hot cakes out of the oven n eat it while its hot n enjoy
i don't knw why all people try to degrade k750i but i don't think soo u can see the design of w800 which is very ugly specially from backside but on other hand k750 has a very beautiful and atrractive design what the rubbish color of w800 orange hw sad and 4m back side camera like old style no one comments abt k750 camera style so coool...why people forget that man impress only to see aa beauty of mobile not walkman or memory if u wana to impress the people for w800 then catch every person and tell him abt its memory and walkman what rubbish...if ur phone design is cool like k750 u don't need to tell everybodyy ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo...
another difference is that you can play ur music even when the phone is off...so it's good when you're travling on the plane or something and you have to have ur phone off...you can still play your mp3...this phone is so wicked and cute!
