This phone is not all that expensive. I am after buying the Nokia N90 and I gonna have to pay nearly twice as much, but for me it is totally worth it. Everyone seems to hate the phone though. Why? My opinion is because all of you Sony Ericsson fans won't accept any Nokia model to be superior. People call the N90 big,ugly and heavy even though it is one of the most stylish and origional handsets on the market. I even went in a shop and asked them if they had the N90 in and they started bad mouthing it saying that it was too heavy and that the Sony Ericsson W800i was far smarter. I replied by saying that I was only interested in buying the N90 because I did not feel the W800i did as much as the N90, plus I wanted a phone which can take good video as well as good pictures. For some reason the guy looked at mem like he was offended by me not wanting to be like everyone else. I think their are certain Sony Ericsson fans out their who find they have to destroy Nokia's image but it doesn't seem to work becasue Nokia are still the biggest and arguebly the best.
use my W800 with a 1gb MS Pro Duo, it was awesome!!!!! 150 songs and still got 400MB space to go!
Anybody had any problems loading there pc software?
wth...so expensive... might as well buy a k750 and get another mp3 player if you wan the memory for mp3 player files....it's like 1/3 MORE expensive than k750 and since k750 is not that cheap too!

To: thebuddha--With regards to T-Mobile vs. Cingular (AT&T).
These are the facts:
T-Mobile purchased and owns all the Cingular and AT&T sites. The 850 band is in use with Cingular--but it's not Cingular's main freq. It's very new to them. And, it is the least used freq. in the US.
When on T-Mobile--T-Mobile customers with tri-band phones automatically use the Cingular sites--if they are nearer or stronger. When using a quad-band phone--T-Mobile has access to the most sites.
Both companies have phones with 900, 1800, 1900 and 850, 1800, 1900.
Sony released the W800i this way in the US--because the combination of 900, 1800, 1900 is more common--and should yield the best result.
I don’t know if it’s just mine, but does everybody else’s W800i make some weird rattling noise as the camera focuses? Kinda worrying, I've only had it for a day :\
Only if it was a samrt phone, it wud hav been my dream ph. sigh... but still then it wud hav cost way too much. Oh and can anybody tell me if its sound quality is comparable to Nokia 6680 or N70(still to come) coz i think they both(6680 and N70) should be having almost same sound quality!
Love this phone, definitely going to buy it (either through the Sony Style site or through one of the vendors), but I wanted to find out if it is ever going to be released as an 850/1800/1900 phone. I ask because I am a US Cingular Wireless customer, and the default band for my GSM is 850, so if this phone is only going to come out in 900/1800/1900, then I am going to have to piggyback off of the TMobile band, which is ok (since I don't get charged for this) but TMobile service really sucks where I am. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Sweet phone, though
ZL SE Supporter, i didnt drop the phone on purpose, was well scared when i went to pick it up, but it was fine. Not a mark. Phew! Wouldnt drop it to test, no chance.
Chris dude u r MAD! u actually dropped ur phone to test if there will be any marks or scratches be made!? r u that rich!? pls respect the phone or the phone maker at LEAST! u dun buy phone to drop it for testing man! this is a good phone!
I can confirm i was worried about dirtying my w800i but i had it a week now and not a mark on it. Even dropped it from about 4 foot and no marks at all. Only comes in this colour too.
Well ive only had mine for a week, but its still squeeky clean. Just make sure u wash your hands every 10 mins and you should be ok
I've been eyeing this phone since it was announced by Sony..but instead i got myself the K750i its a really good mobile and the functions are just what i was looking for! but...ive been thinking of getting my hands on the W800i...what im worried about is the white color...does it easily get dirty??? can anyone verify this? thanks guys!
