I inserted my brother's sim card in and everything worked, so I'm guessing it's okay right?
that model is for chinese market. i don't know if it will work in the US. well, as long as the characters are in english it may work otherwise if I were you I would send it back or at least contact plemix as they might have sent you a wrong one.
I just received my w800i. I ordered it from www.plemix.com. It says it's an W800I on the website, but when I checked under phone status, it says "Model: w800c" Can anyone tell me if it'll work in the U.S or if something is wrong?
wats da latest firmware goin around? And how do i get 2 dwnld it on my phone...
Was a Nokia user all the while (5130, 8210, 6610) and changed to this W800i for its amazing features. Loving it for every moment !
If you get this phone make sure you get the store to upgrade to the latest firmware before you agree to buy it.
Older firmware has so many bugs its not funny, and this phone was giving me the s**ts, so much so I nearly went back to my 3 year old Nokia as it worked better! I thought I'd give it one more change and try upgrading the firmware and now its heaps better.
- I'd assign an mp3 to a ring tone or the alarm and after a while it couldn't play them (resulting in just a vibrating alert to wake me in the morning which I often wouldn't hear, or the ring tone would just default to the sony ericsson because it couldn't play the mp3) and I'd have to reboot the phone before I could play mp3s again.
- the reminder alert is REALLY loud and can't be adjusted (in new firmware its much quieter)
- the phone screen would go white for no reason and not respond forcing me to shut down the phone before I could use it again
In the new version I've also noticed that when searching for someone in your contacts list you can search by typing in more than one letter! Bonus!
The update firmware process to do yourself is terrible and quite finicky, I really wouldn't recommend you do this (I work in tech support and I found it hard). Hence the reason to get it done in store before you buy.
i always play 3gp files in my w800,but how come it couldnt play out the video once i put in mp4 files???
i bought dis phone a couple of days ago...wrks perfectly well...however, it charges only upto 80% of phone usage...nvr get the phone 2 show 100% or full battery..
do i need 2 update any firmware or something 4 dis...do let me know
hi does anyone know what is the maximum memory the w800 can support? I know it comes with a 512 MB, can this be upgraded to 2 GB?
can i load additional applications in W800i, any website from where i can get them???
Your Windows Media Player files may be protected, and this could be the reason for them not working :)
Hey, anyone has problem with the earpiece volume? I've adjusted it to the maximum (the "+" rocker switch at the side of the phone)but it is still pretty soft, especially when I'm having a conversation at a slightly "noisy" environment. Can't really hear very well from the party over at the other end. Not sure if it is my phone defect or it is all the same for W800?
