hey! i have no problem with the overall performance of my w810i. its great! best phone i bought so far. but my only concern is that my brother has a w700 and if he sets a contact image and that contact/number texts him he gets an image same as what he set it up with. but in w810i if you set a contact image, the image only shows up if the contact/number will call but not with text messages.
I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHY THIS THING SORT OF THING HAPPENS?
HAS ANYONE ENCOUNTERED THIS OR IS IT JUST ME?
IS IT WITH THE SOFTWARE OR W810i DOES NOT SUPPORT THIS KIND OF FEATURE?
i've looked through everything and if anyone knows please tell me!!!
This phone is an excellent piece of work, although lacks in some stuff like photo call, short sms memory, minor fade outs during call (happens seldomnly but not very noticeable and yes, upper buttons are too small and close. But still this is a great choice in terms of features, looks, easy to handle and price. This phone has a problem like sometimes, it doesn't dial a number from the phone book and needs to restart it. and also gets held for some time after the restart, but it can be fixed by upgrading the firmware. mp3 can be used as ring tone, just select the mp3 song, click on MORE -- USE AS -- Ring Tone. I have also found it a tough one, dropped it a couple of time on marble floor but still working without any scracth or problem :D. Battery life depends upon the type of application and usage. Songs playing without headset will drain the battery in less than a couple of hours, but i used its walkman along with the headsets for more than 8 hours. Lots of Java based themes and applications are available on the internet including GPS ones. Even chatting softwares are easily avaiable. Over all a great deal....
Bought this phone a week ago and i'm really happy with it. It combines the best features of the K750i (camera with flash and auto-focus) and W800i (better mp3 and sound handling). I actually considered buying an SE K618i or an N70 (i used to be a Nokia guy, but got fed-up with their exorbitant prices) initially but changed my mind and favored the W810i instead. I'm not into 3G (or smart-phones for that matter; which i find too slow and clunky) anyway. Cellphones dont really make good web-browsing devices or a place to watch videos (I let my PDA handle that). Finally, i love the way it syncs to Outlook without a hitch! Perfect for a person like me who keeps humongous numbers of contacts and notes.
The only fault i found when using the W810i is the lack of a joystick. It took some time for me to adjust, but thats not really a big problem. And at the end of the day, all i really look for in a cellphone is the size, call quality, durability, and storage space.
The W810i is everything i need in a cellphone and more! Buy it!

3) any applications u can download for the phone such as gps navigation
i had many phones, all type of brands... i had a sony ericsson w800 and was really good... couldn't complain about it.. now i have sony ericsson w810 ... it is true that the speakers are not so loud as w800 and u cant cover the lenses, but... its a great phone !!!
Depending on the compagny you signed a contract with, the firmware has been modified and this option removed so they can charge you for mp3 ringtunes downloads.
You're going to need to flash the memory
Hi guys its a damn sexy phone in enginner langauage its equal to 1/CosC = SecC (SEXY) its great m happy with that i i enjoyed additional speakers also ...........Gourav kumar
This phone is great, i used have a samsung z140 but the memory was S***. The sony ericssons or the best phones out for music, the one thing i dont like or the head phones they keep slipping out, maybe cos i have big ears, i dont know. I would rate this phone a good 8
its a rubbish phone there are far better designed sony ericssons out there. the phone freezes up and requires turning off for reboot, this has happened to my friends as well as mine.
also the top buttons are too close together. you find yourself constantly closing the walkman function as it seems to want 2 turn on every time you press another button near it.
in my opinion, opt for one with squarer buttons at the top.
altho, the camera and features are good.
This phone is excellent! It is like an entertainment system compressed for your hand. There is virtually nothing I can say I'm dissappointed about. Never have I used a another phone that meets my every expectation. The screen resolution is amazing as the 2 megapixel camera. The FM radio is crystal CLEAR with the earbuds it come with. The themes are are magnificent with animations. I strongly recommend this phone to anyone!
I just got this w810i and am unable to use my mp3 song as ringtunes. can anyone tell how please?????
I heard you can get this phone free if you sign new account contract with Cingular Wireless. Is this true ?
This phone is even better if free!
