This phone is like a piece of cheese to a mouse mm mmmm mmmm, loving the color and it fits in my mouth.
I've had no problems with my W810i at all, since day 1. My software version is CXC1250318. Seems like a few of you guys have CXC1250317.
From my limited knowledge of the sofware/firmware version etc., I presume you guys don't have the latest firmware? Mine is xxx318, not xxx317 like you guys. Try updating your software via the Update Service in your phone Settings. Maybe that'll help.
And to all the ppl who've had heaps of problems with their W810i, You might've gotten faulty handsets or something. I just hope you guys get the problems sorted, because this is simply an ABSOLUTELY STUNNING phone! I'd give it a 10/10, without any hesitation.
i bought this phone just barely under a month and had visited the service centre twice due to battery poor performance. my battery barely lasted for 12 hours(would u believe it). finally the service centre decided to give me a new battery after my second visit and still testing it. can anyone tell me how long can the battery last on standby mode without using it?
the software version i had is CXC1250317 R4DB005.
the sound quality of my w810i isn't good at all whem I'm listening music on the minimum volume(I hear the music and an humming )
Is that only on my w810i or there are someboy else with the same problem?
I got a w810 from Spain - 335 €
If you like to listen music that's your mobile. Excelent sound and acceptable battery life.
The photo camera is nothing exceptional but slight better than other 2Mp phones.
The performance of the phone is quite fast, the video player can play at good resolution in vertical but not (as i've been able to check) in full horizontal screen that comes absolutly pixeled.
To my point of view:
BEST: Music player, fast performance and Walkman Off-line (for travelers that use the plains often)
TO IMPROVE: The camera resolution, mpeg4 in horizontal and Symbian SO would have been the best option.
GREAT PHONE with litle tiny problem, W810i can't repeat schedule for a week or two weeks or month or year! but you can create repeated schedule with microsoft outlook than transfer to the phone (wasted time), also digit of year only 2 digits. Just only litle tiny problem.
Beleive me buy this phone you never regret it!
This is a nice phone ever, its so unique. Its been two weeks now since i bought it, yesterday i showed it to my boyfriend said to me he really loves it the way he loves me.. Its so perfect. Go and get one for yourself.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, stop asking about if u should get this phone or not. I reckon u should get this phone cause I reckon is one of the best phone that came out. And the problems that concerned everyone, It never happened to me and I bought my phone on Ebay. So I reckon get this phone and enjoy it. Just read the manual, it may take 1 hours but if you read it, you will understand all about the phone
ok, Ill answer some question, to remove the shutter sound for camera, put your phone on silent mode. If your camera is crashing, then either your software isnt the latest or your mistreating it. The battery is short in the beginning but if you keep using it over and over again, recharging it, it will get stronger and last longer. The lens cover isnt a problem since the camera is dented inside the phone, it wont get scratch but it will get dusty but easily remove. You cannot save msges on the memory card but I heard rumors that there is a program where u can. Hmmmmmm these problem are easily fixable, all u need is time to figure out wats wrong. I would rate this phone 9/10. I didnt give it 10 because there is a file called greeting that comes with the phone and like u go to walkman mode, its rite there in your play list, and i want to remove it but its a protected file. Anyone have any idea to remove this file beucase its kinda getting on my nerve. Ok anymore question I'll answer, the only question on wont answer is the software things. That I don't know anything about. Should ask Carbonize

hihiguys.. do u knw wats the latestsoftwre version of tis Phone??
mine is CXC1250317 R4CK003 000000
pls giv some reply ...
even though this phone does have some small flaws like i've listed below... PLEASE don't get the wrong idea about this phone. this phine is GREAT! i mean excellent! the camera's good in lighted areas (not that great at night or darker indoors). however, this phone has never dropped any of my phone calls (i'm using T-Mobile in the US). i honestly think that the only reason why some people have been experiencing dropped calls is because of their phone carrier... not the phone's fault. i do admit that the battery life is a bit too short... but if you don't play with it often then it would last about two-three days. that's like usually how long a usual phone would last too i guess. however, if you keep playing with the menus or listening to music on it via loudspeaker then it would drain fast. this phone is great though... i like all the features here. i don't care for 3G because i don't think US uses this feature yet anyway or it would cost a lot to have.
if you're wondering if you should get this phone then YES! i could've gotten some other phone i.e. w900i... but i chose this one! and i don't regret it. if you're still confused... then research on the functions this phone has. if you feel like this phone isn't what you're looking for then don't get it. if so then get it because the flaws people made a big deal about isn't even worth mentioning. it doesn't even happen often. just sometimes just like how a computer is. it crashes sometimes right? but it doesn't mean that it does that all the time and that you should throw it away so get this phone. i doubt you'll regret!
regarding the camera crashing question: yes it did happen to me... but not often. this mostly happens when i take a bunch of pictures. usually won't happen though... just sometimes/rarely
regarding about the phone crashing as in the phone won't turn on: yes it did happen to me... but only twice when i barely got it. now it works without flaws. it turns on whenever i turn it on and sometimes i don't turn it off for about two days.
and yes... i do have the latest firmware version for the US
Fellow canadians good news! Rogers now has the w810 for 199 on 3 yr and it comes with a 1 GB card. Yes, 1 GB instead of 512mb!
I just brought this cell last week...but you know what..sound is good,clear than than the Nokia 3250...tht cell have software problem...I like this cell and gonna keep this for long time
Moved from T637 to K750i and now I have the W810i for about 2 weeks my first 1 had a dead pixel. then my second w810i dropped calls like crazy after SE update. Then got it reflashed with HK firmware and the phone is great. No problems after the new firmware, the reception is EXCELLENT. No complaints.....
