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!
Is there any other color? is there anyone here who used N91 already? if yes, kindly give me ur feedback.. tnx
is there any other color? ive been using k750i for a month now and its very good.. i read in one posted opinion that se will launch p950? how true is it? is there anyone here who used n91 already? if yes, kindly give me ur feedback.. tnx
i cant believe this phone is coming out in the US! i should be happy rite?? but im not cuz if it does come out here then everyone would be getting them like ipods and other stuff.... i wanted to get this phone so id be the only one who has it around and at shcool but knowing this it makes me kind of pissed of. i wuz really likin this phone... n6681 and n90 is coming out here aswell so tat sux more. i want to have a phone in US that not everyone has. any suggestions???anyone???
Is the software/firmware the same as K750? Any differences other than flight mode and the mem card supplied?
Where is it available in Canada. Anybody know?
As well plemix.com has the phone listed @ 479 USD without contract. This is the lowest price I have found online. Is this a reputable dealer?

Just played around with this phone the other day. It costs $630 CND with no contract and is out here in Canada.
Very nice phone. Light and easy to hold in your hands. Great MP3 and Camera. Was just not too crazy about the OS. It actually froze on us when the sales rep. was showing me some of the features. So i hope this is not a random thing with this phone.
I was actually going to buy the phone but after the OS froze on me i just decided to wait and see some more reviews and user comments of this phone before i make up my mind.
Never the less, this is a very nice phone.
Got the Sony Ericsson W800i for a few days now on O2 monthly contract for £79.99 and a tariff of £20 a month..
The phone is quite good in many aspects as the u put mp3 music and listen on the go and put them as ringtones, msg alerts and alarms as even (or you could even use the radio!)..
The w800i is easy to use and very easy to transfer files from phone to computer and vice versa, using the USB cable...
The phone is light and strikeingly white and contains easy to use applications. Friendly touchs like a photo of the person callin/txtin u..
The picture quality is quite good at 2MP and at a big size (1632 by 1232 .. summat like that). But the video quality is similar to that of the S700 which is a shame..
Another few bad points are that battery does seem to drain quite quickly when you are listenin to music and using the phone applications at the same time (7hrs approx)but the battery somehow "self-charges" and regains some energy back.. probably due to overuse of the walkman player if constantly used..
Not only that.. but the w800 has frozen on me twice when loading some pictures.. took five minutes for it to swtich the phone off and restart after frantic panics... lol..
However, i've got to say that the w800i has got to be one of the most best fones on the market, as the good points do excel the bad points..
Although similar to the k750i and still undecided to get which one.. you should get the w8ooi if you are a music lover.. and who isnt?
Any queries just email me..
Our W800 managed a wee bit over 10.5 hours of talk time in our battery test, outdoing the K750 we tested by over 45 minutes. I can't say if there have been optimizations made to the W800 that were not present in our early firmware K750, but it is certainly possible. It could just have to do with atmospheric differences at the time, or a simple variation in the batteries. But needless to say, over 10 hours of talk time is a very, very good score. Sony Ericsson claims that the W800 can play music for up to 30 hours with the phone turned off, or 15 hours with it on. I see no reason to disbelieve that based on the phone's talk time performance.

At the electronics markets of Hong Kong appeared a peculiar new product released by Sony Ericsson together with Touch. The Europeans might get disappointed, as the European version of the W800 doesn’t have a 1GB Memory Stick Pro Duo card and Musician SRC 100 remote control.
There is no info on the price of the SE W800i package. Naturally you have to pay extra money for 1 GB flash card and the remote control, which you can hardly buy separately. The Musician SRC 100 weighs 18 g and measures 51x18x11.7 mm.
bigem !Must be a good company you work for if you can arrange an interview for your mate to work for them !!! Who said I was crying bout the price ? I was just saying it's a rip off when some places are giving them away for free. Your probably the kind of sad person that would remortgage your house to get this phone even if you knew you could get it for nothing in a couple of weeks time !!
