Again to HARDMAN -
[quote]-Have you tried the software update feature of the phone to see if tyou have an old version of the software?
-the light problem is what SE set so you dont drain the battery. Under 3.5 bars of battery it will start flashing. With Vodafone you can get new firmware updates to fix this problem but i dont know when they will be released.
-I believe the reason they did this is because it is a power saving feature. You can view the screen with the clock etc. that you are talking about by pressing the orange walkman button while the phone is on standby after about a minute.[/quote]
Almost 100% is sure that it have new firmware for the older versions who fixes the problems! From the "problem" with black screen you make a big problem! When you saw for last time SE to turns off itself just like that.. ?! Even with the oldest firmware in any SE phone won't happen that!! If you want clock,then push one button and ready! It's not so hard..!! For the flash problem,missed calls and master volume it should have new update for this !
65 page in your manuel:
Choose one of the following methods to update your phone:
[*]over the air via your phone or
[*]online via the provided USB cable and an internet-connected computer
Clear and understandable!!
whatz the difference between walkman phone and normal other phones with mp3 players to which headphones may be connected ?
HARDMAN where did you see MUCM in my post ? :D I'm jocking.. ;)
Afcorse SE will fix the problems! They cary about their buyers,very good in fact compared to other brands. You should have patience,SE won't ever let their phone with such problems,this is not Siemens with 2345 firmwares and still problems,so don't worry and don't be so angry,it's not healthy. Ask in your nearest SE service or market for these problems,or email as i said. Every problem have it's fix. Always!
To: MUBU - Thanks for the tips! Not practical to have to do that, but now I know.
To: MUCM: Since you don't have the phone you can't instruct me to turn off the power saving because there is no power saving option. Besides, thanks for making me feel better that SonyEricsson will fix the LIGHT problem and the DROPPED CALLS problem.
Also to Hardman,
One of the niggles I have found is that everytime the phone is turned off and then back on again the master volume goes back to half level. Since the ringtone and message alert, as well as having the additional volume on the ringtone, both utilise the master volume. All you can do is each time you turn the phone back on is to play a tune and turn the volume back to maximum each time. Unless anyone knows an easier way.
to HARDMAN - A few post ago,some one written that when you send email,or contact anyway to SE and explain what is the problems,they helps you. Soon will be new firmware,and I',m 100% sure that missed calls and the light problem will be fixed. It's strange that in the menu don't have settings for power saving mode,in k700's for example did that settings,and afcorse if you don't want your phone to be with totaly black screen while in stand by you just turns off the saving mode in the menu. It should have this in w810 also,the light sensor afcorse won't be disabled when turn off saving mode in the menu,it should be there that settings.. Otherwise to be added in the coming soon new firmware. Maybe more opinions from owners about that? Regards!:)
I like this phone very much but:
1) When I turn on the flash light to take a picture, the light starts blinking hindering me from taking a picture. When I turn on the flash light to see in the dark, the light blinks again! This is so totally wrong and irritating!!
2) I think that the message alert should have come with a volume adjustment option. Somehow, I'm not hearing the incoming sms unless the phone is under my chin.
3) After 20 seconds in standby, the phone goes totally black, I look at it and I don't know if it's on or off! They could've at least made it gray if they want to save energy but totally black is too much! Or a totally black screen with a digital clock. A majority of people nowadays look at their phones in standby to see the time, but this is unfortunately not possible in w810i. Besides, if I have a missed call or an sms I would really like to see that on the standby screen just like in other phones: Nokia, Samsung etc...
4) I've had the phone for less than a week, but I heard that some w810i owners are losing calls because the phone has a software problem in receiving incoming calls. I think if this is true, then this is a catastrophy. A 500 euro phone that has such a problem is an outrage! Walkman and smart design I appreciate it all, but the phone has got to be 110% reliable. If some customers don't reach me on this phone, then I'm losing much more money than the €500 I paid for this Sony Ericsson.
"The phone has the same radio quality as the K750i, which is rather high. HPM-70 stereo headset is included into the kit, but in contrast to previous versions the earphones imply no rubber insertion for wearing on the neck. They are simpler and feature only thin wires. They both look plainer and transmit sound worse (subjectively the quality is lower)." -> mobile-review.com
To owners - Is this true ? If there is a difference what's it?
if anyone is familiar with youtube
go to youtube.com and in the search bar type w810 and the first result is the phonescoop video review for the w810!
Also I want to ask the owners is it true that the w810's phones are worse than the w800's because w810's don't have rubber or sometghing like that i read in w810's review in mobile-review.com
Thanks! The phone is the best! much better desighn,colours and keys than w800's maintainly and than k750's also. And little,but great new feautres.Only the price is the problem,but it will fall down.. I can wait.. The phone is realy astonishing,best replacement for my 3years old t610 :)
Hello all. I want to ask you is there an airplane profile-on turning on the phone to ask you what to turn on,onlu the walman,or the whole phone(as in w800). Thank a lot.
For settings I suggest you get them from the Sony Ericsson website, I got mine from there and they work fine, just enter your details like your contry, phone network and number and they will send you the settings instantly. Just go to www.sonyericsson.com and choose your country/language and then click on support and there should be a section of links for the settings to be sent. I hope this helps.
oh thank very much for telling me about the orange walkman button that i had to press that for the time to show on standby but i have another question isent the a way to show the time on standby like is does on the other sonyericsson phones with out pressing the orange button? and something else i have a problem with installing mms and wap setting in cyprus we send a msg to are phone company and they send us the setting when i press to install it says somthing about device mgmt.about SE and it cancel the istallation
It is true there are some software issues with this otherwise great phone.Its good to wait for a month or so before buying W810i.
i have just been told there is a software problem with this phone, so if you can wait a month it should be sorted, if you cant wait its your problem!!
Yes, I noticed that when my battery was really low the flashing light problem stopped; it's almost as if they've got it the wrong way round.
once again, i will say that the flashing light problem will occur even after a full charge or while charging. it doesn't only happen if it's under 3.5 bars.
i'm just waiting for a f/w release which hopefully will fix this problem.
I've also experienced the odd dropped call, but i don't know if that's the phone or just a ntework issue. I know others have complained about dropping calls on the w810i
