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.....

4)How many sms's can one store on the phone ?(heard it only goes upto 100 which is the limit ) true/false
5)the phone drpos calls a lot !! true/false

Hey mate, what's your software version? Mine is "CXC1250318"/"R3CK003". I got my phone some time last week, and I've had no problems with the camera at all, nor any problems with saving photos either.
Have you tried going into your phone settings, and under the "General" tab, try updating your software version. Maybe that'll help. Everytime I connect, it tells me mine is the latest version. So you might wanna give that a go and see if you still get the same problem.
In fact, I've had no crashing problems everyone's worried about here at all. I use the phone ALL the time, and I've had it turned on ever since day 1.
regarding the phone crashing while on camera mode:
it's not like it crashes as in freezes the phone. it's more like i'm on camera mode. i take the picture and instead of Saving, it goes back to the first screen (desktop screen i think it's called) and the picture was not saved. then i'll have to restard the camera again.
so anyone else experience this?
