Hi - i had both these phones up MAXIMUM volume, just not loud enough, and i used the supplied earphones which are excellent
i just want it louder
i know these nothing wrong with my hearing, i had my ears tested for my job 2 weeks ago, and i have exceptional hearing
maybe when i get a firmware upgrade, volume will improve? thoughts?
Can't say my phones quiet. I can't even use full volume with the ear phones as it's just to loud then. I assume you did turn the volume up and were using headphones?
Ok - i recieved my 2nd Sony Ericsson W810i today, i sent the 1st one back because of the camera light flashing! and the 2nd one is still doing it!
i have 14 days to hope that SE bring out their firmware upgrade, then we can all update it from the fone i think?
also, it looks like its not just me complaining about the Maximum Volume Output of this phone, i just put 14 albums onto it at 320kbps, the quality is just incredible, but its not loud enough!
i dont want to sit there for hours "tweaking" mp3`s with software to make them louder! i want it to work from the start!
apart from that i am very very happy with it, still annoyed with the flashing camera light... the rest of the phone is great
excellent display, assigning individual ringtones and pictures to different callers in your phonebook is really good aswell, you cant do that on the Nokia N91!
im going to try the N91 when it comes out, im curious to hear the sound quality and output volume compared to the W810i
anyone having same probs as me?
Bye for now
I just bought the w810 and compared to the
k750 and w800 which i both had is much better! the screen is excellent more live colors and the microprone is louder when your listening from the phone which the other two were not that loud! also the joystick jams on the other two! so i think the w810 is more advanced.
You compare your phones everyday? Wow now that is sad. Take the hint, nobody here cares what you have to say as you are nothing but a Nokia Troll. Maybe we should all go posting on the Nokia opinion about how we think the W810i is the better phone. Your 'cousin' has one of the few that had bugs so you announce to the world that all are bad.
To those who are actually here with INTELLIGENT comments please carry on posting.
@mitsarakos you are quite safe. There are no viruses out there that can infect mobile phones except those that use the Symbian OS.
The W810i is simply the best. Even by SE standards this phone is awesome. Great walkman, 2mp camera, superb screen, long battery life, what more can u ask for?
I downloaded today the opera mini,to my mobile phone w810.I tried it,and it works perfect.However,I am afraid to use it,because I don't know how secure it can be,to be connected in internet with a mobile without an antivirus program.Does anybody know (please only if you are sure) if there is a possibility to be infected by a virus (and so to destroy my mobile,oh god no)? Dit any problem happen to anybodys mobile? And what should I do in such a case? Please help me.Thank you in advance for your assistance.
wat's d point of being angry, wen u admit things like a few people experience bugs?! ur juz to DEFENSIVE! ok, look at ur present there are COMPLAINTS again! i may not have W810, but my cousin has one and she's juz 30 feet away we always compared my phone with her W810 everyday! is dat wat u call hearsay?

(even said "it reports that I already am at the latest level, but I still get the flashing light and i think i drop calls very occasionally. (plus I can't delete songs from within the walkman menu")
so does d new firmware has bugs too??
not to mention d previous ones! perhaps u r really "carbonized"!
What is exactly built-in handsfree??? What is the difference of normal hands free???? Thanxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
@Murrie - No
@HMM - Turn the master volume up. Play a song or ringtone then use the side volume button to turn it up.
@Mick from Oz - CXC1250316 R4CE012 000000 here.
hey ppl...i wanted to know whether i can play .wma format songs on a w-series phone=/
I feel W810i, the ringtones volume is really slow compared to K750i. Is there any kind of solution to it?
the latest software in malaysia is CXC 1250317 R4CK003. Not too sure about australia though.
hey guys. what is the latest firmware version ? i'm running CXC1250316 R4CE012 000000. This is the Australian/Optus version of this phone.
If I do a "Search for Update" on the phone, it reports that I already am at the latest level, but I still get the flashing light and i think i drop calls very occasionally. (plus I can't delete songs from within the walkman menu)
Hey there just a question does anyone know how many hours of music you can listen to when the w810i is on flight mode
I got the w810i too and its so awsome!!!! sharp pictures, uo to 2 gig memory! i got 2 movies on it!
far out boys! stop whinging abt sum bloody firmware. no phone is perfect, at least not yet. every phone has its advantage and disadvantages..so if u fink this phone sucks then dun buy it then. wuts the big deal?
i have the w810i- its awesome, but its not meant for US release yet, so its not compatable with a US GSM carrier yet. Dropped calls are happening to everyone- Cingular or Tmobile, apparently worse with Cingular because they merged with AT&T, and the SE 810i doesn't know how to communicate with AT&T towers yet. You can fix the dropped call issue yourself by flashing the phone, which is basically reinstalling the OS. it will cost about $12, don't make any mistakes, because it will be serious. go to www.howardforums.com and do a search on 810i. SE will flash the phone for you, but it will take weeks and they need a receipt to prove you bought it in the US. SE will not release any firmware updates for this phone until it is released in the US- maybe later this summer. Too long to wait for SE, so a few smart people have fixed the problem by writing a software download to flash your phone to another OS. Regarding the light, if it flashes when you're trying to take a photo, its on SOS mode. You can change it in the Organizer section. Regarding media files- it will accept all kinds, MP4, Mp3, WAV, etc. Regarding Sony memory sticks- its not a big deal. you can get a 2GB Sony Duo Pro card for $79 on sale at Frys. Other brands work with this phone too, and 2GB cards are quickly becoming less than $100, SE phones are brilliant!
Wow Viperchild you really really need to get a life. Yes a few people experienced bugs. A few people who got theirs from O2 online and received versions with an early version of the O2 firmware. So because O2 made a mistake in their branding of the phones you automatically declare that this phone is rubbish? The bugs were O2's mistake not Sony's. This phone has no bugs except those that O2 created and then fixed. Stop living in the past. Until you actually get one of these phones for yourself your opinions are pointless and based upon hearsay. Do you have one of these phones? No you do not.
