mannitol: I have the exact same peoblem with the flashing light. It works for about 5 seconds or so and then begins to flash on and off each second. I have been looking everywhere for a fix but can't find one. If you find a way to fix it I would appreciate it if you posted the answer here and I shall do the same. I think I will try going to a store on the weekend and ask someone in person if it is normal. I have noticed that it remains on while on the charger, is this the same with you?
Angie: yes, there is a flight mode.
Went to stores today, none had it, one store said they will have it available on thursday so will go get it then.
Got my W810 yesterday morning and am chuffed to bits with it. However there are one or two things I have noticed which I've not read about here.
Firstly, when I access the light mode under the activities nav.button, the light will flash on and off after about 10 seconds (in "on" mode). My phone doesn't freeze or crash and I just turned the light off to stop this.
If I am in camera mode, sometimes the shutter button will blink on and off (an LED behind it goes off). It's happened two or three times and just stops on its own.
Final thing is that I can't seem to do anything with camera images on my phone. I can't rename them even if I try and do it under the "memory card" tab (as opposed to phone/memory card tab) and I can't move them to a folder I have created. This is possible to do when plugged into the PC, but I don't want to plug it into the PC all the time! It's an annoyance. I mean, even my Neonode could do this.
Oh and for those talking about contracts and where you got the phone - I got the handset for £29.99 on a £19/month contract (one year) on the o2 website, which so far I think is the cheapest option if you can't upgrade (I upgraded about a month earlier to an XDA Executive and at the time was holding out for the K800. Glad I got this now though =D )
Does anyone know if the w810i has the flight mode the same as the w800i
o2's problem is they would rather take care of new customer than keep hold of their exsiting customer no wonder thay are loosing so many customers cause every time you call them you just get fobbed off with one excuse or another.
Is it better then the W800i, no they are equal.
Whats the diff, not much from a user point of view just general tweaks here and there o and of course the colour.
Hello if you were looking for a review from gsm, therews not realy one out yet but this helped me a little bit http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_3250_and_se_w810_released-news-180.php .
Sorry if it doesent Rob
Retrix, if i understand you correctly you where paying £18 pm for a £30pm tariff right ? if so then the price you where quoted for the upg is correct to a point.
You moaned about the price, what do you expect if you where reciving a discount on the tariff ? this is a busissness after all.
Adam, what do you exactly mean by this ?
ie you started a contract with another phone and now you want this one ??? if so then am sorry but your past the 14 day cooling off period and so will have to a) stick it out or b) pay full contract price for the handset.
You do have a good point, but I like high resolution cameras on phones because they look better quality when you resize it smaller. If I take an image with my W810i and resize it to 640x480 the quality is amazing where as if I take it with my old 6230 it looks no where near as good and it can only take 640x480 images.
There something I will never understand...why do people care so much about the camera in a mobile ??!! I mean, for the moment there are some 2 MP mobile available, but there are quite expensive compare to a digital camera. For the moment I think it isn't worth, maybe in few years. But for the moment, let's be honnest, although some mobile can do 2 MP resolution, the quality of pictures is not so good. Everything is not in resolution. I have a digital camera Sony 5 MP. I shoot pictures in 1 MP only and the quality is much better than the pictures shot by a 2 MP mobile...so, conclusion ? Do we really need an expensive gadget that shoots pictures in bad quality ? What for ? If you want good pictures, buy a digital camera. It will be cheaper. Yes, true, you will no be able to download I don't know what brandnew ringtone by bluetooth from the digital camera...this is true. But if you want to do that, you buy a mobile, right ?? Because it is so important to download ringtones...Sometimes I think that mobile companies could remove the call function from their mobiles, people would not even see it !!!
What the hell are you guys talking about? Of corse it plays mp3s its a phone designed to be a walkman! I put an mp3 on there and it plays great on it. And of corse it has a phonebook? Since when do phones not have phonebooks?
I had problems upgrading to the W810i on O2 Online but then I realised that getting a new contract for the same monthly price cost less to buy upfront anyway; they told me it was £100 to upgrade - but it was only £30 upfront price to buy a new contract for the same £18 a month I was paying before. The only issue was changing my phone number which doesnt bother me.
By the way: does anyone else with this phone have the flashing light bug?
i think the w810i is really good, the only thing im not too keen on is the camera, i prefer the way that the n70 u could play the video without any icons on the screen, i miss that on the s.e. other than that, i would recomend it....also i read a comment about not being able to play mp3s??? is this true????
well done..!!! another good job from sony ericsson group......!!! i have a phone shop in malaysia,when the sony ecricsson w810 is came out in malaysia market i brought the phone to sell to customers...
"wow!!! it's really fantastic" i heard from my customers whom buy this phone and i also get a goos respon from customers in malaysia...!!! after that i change my phone to sony ericsson w810,i aslo feel the same thing wat are my customers feel...
thank you sony ericsson.
I bought this phone from eBay last week(CTI-Miami), but it turned out to be defective. It froze every 2 minutes. I returned it but I should get a replacement tomorrow. I paid 499 w/ overnight shipping. Don't buy it unless you have T-Mobile. Cingular users are having too many dropped calls with this phone.
