Yes Arj it's very sturdy. This is one of the best phones I've had and it's also the one I have had the most accidents with. I went to put it in my shirt pocket and missed so it fell on the floor and bounced from corner to corner. Apart from some scuffing the phone is fine.
Just on another note about a certain person raving about AAC format. Maybe they should try and find an AAC encoder. The only programs I know that have AAC encoders that people cosnider even halfway decent are iTunes and Nero. I'll stick with MP3's encoded using the LAME encoder for now.
i want this one!!
I recently dropped my w810 on the pavement when i got out of my car. Aside from minor scratches, the phone did not break, the battery cover did not disengage and it still works perfectly. So those asking about the unit's durability, Id say its quite sturdy.

@Abhi - Yes the Opera mini browser is good but it does not allow secure connections

I am interested in buying the phone but have a few questions on the Sony w810i. I am used to Nokia functions, and would like to know if the phone have user groups (just like Nokia)? On Nokia phone, I can assign user groups to the contact list and the phone will either ring or not ring depending on the user group I assign. This function is useful as I attend meetings and would like the phone only to ring if its family (i.e. emergency etc.), else my phone will not alert me with ringtones during my meeting.
Secondly, I am interested to put on the electronic bible onto the phone (just like the other PDA), and would like to know if anyone knows if its possible.
Thanks.. Looking forward to advise from the forum and hope to buy the phone soon if there are ways to address my questions.

Downloaded the Opera Mini browser on my W810i yesterday. Works perfect. In fact, I found it better than the deafult NetFront browser that comes pre-loaded on a 810i.
Does anyone know of any site from where one can download FREE games on the phone? Thanks.
Hi everyone, im from the k300 link and i need some help from the more advanced users here like carbonize and more, can you please give me the site of where i can download the GPRS modem driver/software and the name of the software for SE like in the NOKIA pc suite's "connect to the internet" program... early responses will be highly/greatly appreciated...
mmf is th eringtone format used by Samsung and LG. I believe there is only one program that can play them.
I got a plenty of .mmf files with me. i was told that those files were transfered from a mobile phone. i don't know which software can play those files. these files are of small size (say 6kb). Can this phone play those files?
The amount of music depends on the size of the memory card you put in the phone.
This phone is perfect, I've had it for a few weks now, and I upgraded the firmware and everything is so intuitive. Perfect phone.
i just wanted 2 know,.how many songs can you save in this phone??..
wel,W900 can save up to 1240 songs ryt?..
can anyone tell me?..please..
coz i will ba having this phone..
thanks a lot..
it just doesnt work. i even tried typing it really fast. i cant seem to put 2 letters together to search for a phonebook entry.
This should work the same on all W810's. I got contacts then press T then A I get my partners number up (Tan). You do have to make sure the correct letters appear in the search box at the top.
hello carbonize, thank you for replying. i know how text input works, and this is not my first mobile phone, i know how to use them. i wouldnt be complaining and asking for answers if i havent tried everything.
i have tried accessing several different names, (let's say ANA, #2 and #6 are far apart, so there's no excuse for impatience or lack of knowledge in text input) and it still hasnt worked.
does the region have anything to do with some of the available functions? as is the case with ringtones? like for example, phones made in china have a different set of tones compared to phones made in finland?
is there a difference between this phone n w800? besides looks of course...
@navneeth - Macro mode is for taking very close up pictures
@bonbonita - Either set a speed dial for them or learn patience. The reason it goes to N then O is because they are on the same key and you are pressing the MNO key twice. Either wait for the cursor to move ot press right after pressing M
Your software version is more recent than mine and you have no problem except not understanding how text input works.
