The phone does not have a lens cover. The LED probably 'blinks' when you change between camera and video just because the camera is switching between the two. It's no biggy.
"Hey everyone, I just got a question about the flash on W810. Why does the LED flash when i switch from pictures mode to video mode?
It indicating you have not yet opened the Camera Slider/Shutter.
U just need a software upgrade. The flashlight blinking will be fixed. U can either go to ur local service center or u can do it thru the SE internet site, or over the air.
I listen to my mp3s/radio a couple of hours a day, I play games a few minutes a day, I make normal amount of calls and text a lot. My w810 lasts 3 days. I dont see a problem with the battery. I guess if you listen to mp3s 24 hrs a day u would really have a problem with it...

Oh, yea I do own the phone. And I've had it for almost a month now. The post below is mine.:P
I don't understand the battery life problem either...most people who go the phone probably didn't DISCHARGE the battery fully before recharging it. The battery life is very good. The phone's standby life is outstanding also. This phone is perfect. The Nokia fanboys are the ones who make it sound so horrible. Honestly, if you're going to be using the camera on the phone so much that you worry about the lens...BUY AN ACTUAL CAMERA. The camera DOES take perfect pictures even WITH the lens being a bit dusty. And like someone said earlier, if it's that dirty, wipe it off. If this is the only thing holding you back from buying the phone, stick to landlines. I'm finished.
Well if you bothered to read through earlier posts you would see that Nokia fanboys seem to be scared of SE and constantly post rubbish in here. You would also have noticed that some of the earlier O2 W810s had bugs which later firmware has fixed.
But then with comments like "they got till June 12th to deliver my Nokia N91 after many many FALSE promises
then i will cancel along with my entire family, we will simply move to another network and 02 will lose over £2000 per year.. " I think you're here for comedy value.
I've had this phone for a few weeks now and the battery life is brilliant. I wonder what some people mean by 'playing a few MP3s'. As to the volume thats not a problem I have encountered.
I do find it funny that most of the people who say they have bugs then talk about Nokias and no other make. Makes you wonder if it's not just more Nokia fanboys SE bashing.
ok personally i think this phone was just made because of sony continuous problems with the joystick i think they finally got the message it is nooooooo good it allways breaks mine is doing my heading i cant cope thats the only reason this phone was put on planet earth oh yes global warming will kill you so start praying
i've got the problem that the volume goes down from time to time that much, that i can hardly understand the caller!!??
anyone else with this problem?
(it's already been swaped,same problem)
Well that is true, it would be good though if you could listen to mp3 longer than you get!! I love the phone in everyway just this one problem,
I agree with you
why does everyone say the battery is brilliant? well its not!
it goes very quickly while using Walkman, making a few calls etc
im getting rod of this phone anyway
have Nokia N91 coming next week, and the battery isnt very good on that either, but hey you cant win them all
Is there anyway to make the battery last longer when using the mp3 walkman. It seems to go very quickly, i'm away on holiday next week and do not want to be lying on the beach knowing that my battery will die within hours or that i have to keep charging everyday.
hi everyone,this phone is perfect and im enjoy it but i have question that how can i increase volume of message alert because its very slow why? my old k750i is very louder in message alert (sms) thanks.
I dont see why people complain about the w810 not having a lens cover. The camera is still protected because it is indented and there's a glass protecting it. How hard is it to wipe the dust off? Besides, even with the dust, pictures still come out great.
Also, someone here mentioned that the w800 has volume control, well, so does the w810.
I am from South Afica Is there anyone from SA that have used the w810 before I have read the opinions of people saying they get allot of dropped calls Is it going to be a problem here aswell????
@808 I am currently using a very old model of sony ericsson the z600 I have used it for 2 years now and its the best phone I have ever had I want another ericsson but can't decide between the w810 and nokia n70 the n70 must be a better option because it has more feautures Any suggestions?
Hey guys, need some help where can i download msn software for my w810i cellphone?? Thank you very much.
i recommend you w810. you can despreciate this one only because it have no lens cover.
