Excellent phone I ever had.
Using full functions without any problem.
Picture quality is awesome compare to other 2 mega pixel phones. ( Compared with Samsung D600 E900, Moto KRZR )
Sometimes, some of the menu became fuzzy ( I dont see the menu I only see black dots for one menu like picture quality section etc.)
Reception is Perfect!! I am living in the basement. It picked up the signal pretty well. ( have tried 3 different brands - Moto - good Samsung - midiocre 02 XDA IIs - Midiocre )
Design is ok. No cover for camera lense and LCD pannel is easily scratched. other than that pretty satisfied. I was expecting more color like silver one.
This is my first SE phone and one thing was bugged me was button to send out the call is confusing for the first time but now i am used to it. However, people try to use my phone always confused to send out the call.
Data trasfer function is easy and sweet. there's good sony ericsson themes site so you could download your new themes for free.
InfraRed is also useful sometime you could download some files from my laptop without any problem.
Bluetooth function is perfect never dropped the connection working sweet with my Plantronics headset. you only have to turn on the bluetooth then it will automatically connects it. I remember I had problem with MOTO- brand bluetooth connection.
Walkman/Radio Funciton is also awesome. it is above the average sound quality for it.
Only annoying thing is if you want to listen to Radio you have to plug your headset.
Overall, 9 out of 10 I use almost every function of this phone and I am enjoying it.
Now, some Carrier offers with 4 G of memory card. ( Rogers )
Good stuff. Paid about 380 $ unlocked.
I hope my quick and small review help you to choose the phone.
I really enjoying this phone.its a good and reliable phone.thanks to Sony Ericsson.
this is a great fone. the volume is a little low but i use headphones for listening songs.
and i really dont hear the hiss!!!
this FONE is GREAT
I m a proud owner of SE w810i and really happy with it. But facing just one problem – Phone Lock function. I just can’t give Password Protection to the phone. I can’t Lock the phone. I want to Lock my phone, so that no other can unlock it and use it.
Phone Lock function works only when I Switch Off the phone and Restart it. I wish to use it every time I lock the keypad. Which is easily possible in every Nokia phone.
Is it possible in my w810i? My Software version is CXC1250316R4DB005. Do I need to update for it? There is problem with Code Memo function also. So please guide me.
I've had this phone for 3 months n its still working fine. no problems. only that it stuck when overload n i must remove the batt. i bought another same earphone n still there's the hissing sound. help plz.
to harry ...yesssssssssssssss i faced this problem too....and it happened suddenly..but its been solved after i updated the software by usinf se software update...but the megabass becam so week,,,and the hiss appears too...wiating for the new updates....
i have this phone but when i am listening to music i press the play/pause button and it pauses as usual. but when i press it agian it does not play the same song it skips to any song (normally to the first song on my playlist).
is anyone else having this problem and please can u tell me how 2 fix this!!!!!!!!
make sure ur saving those mp3s and other files to mem stick and not to the phone mem...
i cant figure out how to activate the flash when taking a picture..i guess it does not have one. you can only use the led lights but it does not flash when u take a picture...
Why are you guys all complaining about the hiss? If you want music, get an ipod. It's a good phone and you can listen to music or play a vid game when you're bored in a waiting room. It's a PHONE....
thanks for comments. W810 still is a great phone, i'm just upset about the way SE behaves on the hissing issue. I will wait and see if at SE they change their minds for the better and actually come up with a fix or explanation.
the hiss is there, you can hear it at soft songs with silent parts, with the volume down to one. It's no big deal indeed, but SE introduced this bug with a firmware update, and has no intentions of fixing it. They are in denial of such an issue. Pretty good move from a company like SE.
the hissing problem is present in all current w810 handsets. And they won't fix it. Congratulations SE.
@undertaker, sorry dude i don't understand what you mean.
Does anybody know how to add contacts onto SMS messages...I used to be able to do it with my old Nokia 6280i, but now the only way I can send contacts with the W810i is by directly sending the business card, which is quite confusing when a friend receives it....
Malloy appreciates your comments...
Thank you ever so much...
There is a serious hissing problem on W810i which SE just does not accept. It is said to be introduced after a firmware update to fix a sound distortion and low volume problem. And they say with a blank face that they don't know about a hiss Wa. RIP
REST IN PEACE

Hello everybody here!! I bought this phone yesterday and its just awesome. Its really rocking.
I want to ask one question from those who purchased this hone just now a days only.
I inserted the memory card in my phone(i got 512mb card free with it) When i pressed the volume'+ & -' in standby mode, it shows me the phone status and it, i read that free memory is just 26 mb where as its shows memory stick as 448 mb only. I have only 5 audio songs in it till now.
Tell is it a firmware problem or their exists some other way t check out the free memory????
Thanx in advance
