just got the phone from Cingular, very happy with features, volume is a tad low in noisy areas otherwise very happy with the unit. Big pros are battery life and menu system which blows away motorola. the size is amazing., Sony could have done a better job with the sync software but it still works fine. I highly recommend this phone - by the way i picked the phone up from cingular through our corporate sales rep and cost was minimal, if anyone has a bluetooth recommendation that would be great -i have paired with Mot H750 or H850 and the reception is choppy, One of the main reasons i bought the phone is the quad band feature
pals please which is louder this fone or the k750 during ringing and during mediaplayer
Main Disadvantage in SE phones:
1) No bluetooth sending withouht pairing with other device.
2) Choosing callergroups it sends busy tone to unwanted ones...very embarassing!! if it was ur boss!!!
3) You can't move SONGS in the playlist if u wanna change the order of songs u have to create a new playlist.
4) Low capacity for SMS don't belive its 1000 msg mine got full with 150 sms !
5) Can't change the outer case so if dust trapped below the screen it stuck there forever u can't clean it.
6) ONLY one mobiel no. for every contact u can't add 2 numbers
7) USING LIGHT LED WITH AUTO OPTION IN THE WHITE BALANCE ADDS SLIGHT YELLOW EFFECT USING LIGHT LEDS MUST BE with CHOOSING A MANUAL WHITE BALANCE FOR TAKING PERFECT PICS.
8) CAN'T put ur tracks in folders when u open the media player it shows all.
REGARDING all these slight disadvantage the fone is much much much better than any NOKIA .. nokia is large huge a monster they put all features u don't use!!! i traded this fone with my N90 ,, really this one is greaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaatttt BUT u must get used to it...
have a serious problem,the charging area/head phone socket gets loose connected often,it's difficult to even charge the mobile,help,seen this problem in k series mobiles as well
hey,da fone iz great.can ne1 tell me how 2 stop da vibration wen im scroling da main menu.plz
i've got one of these little beauties and had it since it came out (due an upgrade though and don't have a clue what to get). Bought a 2gb card (1.4 gb in use) and the phone runs smooooth. Not one problem with it so far with regards bugs or firmware. If you are looking for a stable phone that does the lot then this is for you.
Just a quick thing though the sound is fine for me using the stock headphones but if you want to improve the volume invest in a really good set because you can deffo hear a huge difference. if i use my creative headphones then it can be way to loud so i stick to the originals.
guys dis pkn is ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS! buyin it will make it life worth livin! except 4 glitch.....ma frnd owns da same phn bt his headphn sound is louder den mine.....plz plz plz sum1 tell me da soultion 4 dis...

hey ppl which is louder w810 or my k750 in playing mp3 and when the phone is ringing.. kisses thanks 4 helping
to allow u 2 take a video more than a min long u will have 2 go 2 the video settings and change the lengh frm mms format 2 unlimited.
Go with the W810i as it is Quad band and the W850 is only Tri band. So depending on the carrier you wish to use you might not be able to use the W850.
When in camera mode press the # button to turn on the flash. That is the short cut... You can also turn it on going in the settings when in camera mode.
in order to play mpeg 4, you have to set the screen size in certain format. i forgot what it was but u can google it and it'll be easy to find
I am not able to record a video clip of more than a minute. Can any one help please?? do i need to change some setting or something ... please help.
I have the Cingular branded W810i. I have a 4gb memory stick pro duo card in it. I think this is one of the best phones out right now. If its a hot phone i've owned it or played with it extensively. The W810i is extremely customizable and easy to use. It has all the features:
Quadband GSM (850/900/1800/1900)
2.0 Megapixel Camera
Dual LED Flash
MP3 Player (Walkman Branded)
It's extremely easy to use. Has great small features such as the "s.o.s." feature with the flashlight. The options are great. You can turn the light on for a min and it automatically turns off so you won't have to navigate back in the menu. Great voice recorder while on a call. I searched the web for a few days after I had purchased this model and found plenty of FREE things for it. I have (aproximatley)500 movable screensavers, 300 wallpapers, and 200 themes. The screen is beautiful and bright. The headphones that are in the box are great, they are about $40 - $50 at Best Buy if you want to buy them for another device. They aren't a cheap pair. It's very easy to put music on unlike the L7 from Motorola (if with iTUNES). I think as far as MP3 players built into a phone this is hands down the best. Most cell phones with MP3 capapility don't come packaged with a headset, memory card, or data cable & software. Such models include the Samsung D807, LG CU500. When playing MP3's without the heaset they are ok when in a quit place. The part of the headset which plugs directly into the phone can accept any normal line in line out cable. Therefore you can output the sound to almsot any speakers. Heres a neat trick: Buy a tape adapter for a car and put it in the headset wire. There is a mic on the headset part which I am referring to. You can now make a call and use your cars speakers to hear it. Works great and Iv'e done it with my W600i in the past. Not many phones let you make folders on the spot to organize your media but the W810i does. You can take some pictures then make a folder for them and even rename just about any file or folder. There is no way which I have found that you can have no shutter tone, however if you simply turn the phone on "quit mode" by holding the # button the phone will not make a peep when you snap a pic. To see some info about your phone simply click the side buttons up or downe when on the main screen and the wallpaper is visable. That must be done when nothing is running in the back such as the MP3 player. There isn't much that I would change about the phone. W810i is one of my favorite phones to date. Sony Ericsson is doing great things. The only thing I haven't got to work is changing movies into the correct format so that I can watch a movie on the phone. I'm sure i'll get it eventually. Enjoy the phone if you have it, if you don't GO GET ONE ! ! !
