When I bougth this phone was working very very good but like about 2 or 3 months after start to get some problems like:
When you disconnect the phone from the Pc over the USB. the phone gets lack.
When the phone is turned on and you remove the memory stick and put it back the Phone don't recognize the memory til you turn off and turn on again recognize.
When you try to play a song sometimes don't recognize or say playback failed, i don;t why.
sometimes the phone get lack from nothiing and is very very slow to response.
My Phone was a lot of lack and turned off by quitting the battery because the phone don't response and when I try to turned on again the phone show just a white screen for 1 or 2 seconds and turned off again, I went to the Phone Company and they sended to Sony Ericsson and after 10 days (because 10 days is the repair time) and after the 10 days they said me that they going to exchange that phone for another one and there was no one phone to replace and the said they don't know when gonna have more of the W800i.
And Now I'm waiting to get a P990 or the K790 or 800 any gonna be better than the W800i I Think.
But Leaving the problems all that the cell phone have is very very cool
-Memory Stick Duo
-2.0 Megapixels Camera wit LED Ligth
-32 MB Internal Memory
-256K color Display
-everything is good probably is the best phone in features in the market even better than Motorola V3 any version
Thanks that was my opinion

I figured out how to correct the file transfer problems with the w800i. You have to go to sonyericsson.com and go to the support and downloads and download the Sony Update program. This is a step by step wizard that installs the new firmware upgrade and 100% completely fixes the transfers from disc2phone and other transfers. Every song will now transfer guaranteed.
i think that i will buy this mobile i liked its features too much. can you advise me?
I plan to buy this phone soon.
However, I have some questions unanswered.I hope someone can help me.
As far as I know, w800i came with a 512mb duo pro memory card.
Is there a difference between ms duo,ms pro and ms duo pro.
I have a memory card reader. It's USB2.0 8-in-1 card reader by Apacer. I'm currently using it for my N-gage.
Can the 512mb duo pro be able to use that card reader?
No there is nodifference between w800i & w800c. w800i is for the international market while w800c is for china market.
yes my my bro has a w800 he has encoutered that problem also where all the songs dont make it to the phone but he dont make it a prob
SE-W800i is nice! its very handy. The only thing that bugs me is the joystick. The navigation doesnt seem to work well. I'm also confused with the picture quality. Which captures best? it has 2 options "normal" and "fine"?
hey, i've already tried doin that. but still when i safely removed the USB still most of the songs i transfered are missing. could i have your email add? i'm planning to purchase a card reader. u think it would work better than using the cables...? does anyone experience the same thing with ya W800i?
hi i got this fone im wondering if the joy stick in the middle is suppose to not able to move up or is mine just faulty
can you please tell me how to send video clips to my w800i have tried via usb lead by putting clips into video folder but can not open them do they have to be in a certain format . any advice will be helpful thanks ,
How do you guys know if you purchased a fake, Used or a refurbished phone instead of a new one ? Is there any way to find out ? I was told to check the talk time and that the talk time cannot be erased from a phone, is that correct ?
Im a manual worker, and although my job doesnt involve really grimey work im concerned that this phone could get filthy real quick.
Anyone else had this problem?
hi craig. you should know the folder your downloaded songs are going to. as for limewire, as a default, it is in "shared" subfolder inside the limewire folder. for convenience, make a shortcut of that folder on your desktop. you can use the steps i gave to norieghay to move or copy from ur computer to ur phone. i know it is so simple to many out there reading this forum.
norieghay, hi. when u connect ur phone to ur comptr using the usb cable, make sure that it really is connected by looking at the C:\ directory. ur phone's drive(removable drive)should be any after E: (might be F:, or G: and son on depending on whatever removable drive(s) is connected. u can also open those removable drives to see what folders and files are on them. sometimes even u connect the phone by usb cable it doesn't appear on the computer. now, assuming that ur mp3s are on a folder on ur comptr and with that folder opened, highlight one or all of the songs u want to move or copy to your phone, and on the left pane of the explorer window click on "move this file(or folder) and a folder tree window will appear. if u don't see the removable drive for ur phone, double click on "my computer" to open its contents. u should find ur drive there. double click again on that removable drive(usually F:) to open its contents and just click to highlight the folder u want to move ur songs to and then click the move or copy button below. after the transfer, u have to disconnect the cable first otherwise ur phone will not show whatever files you have moved to the phone.
