i dislike you european ppl sooo much, you get all the nice phones!
and across the pond we get your leftovers!
yes i added the videos to the folder in the directory: memorystick\mssemc\mediafiles\video and am able to view my videos thru the walkman player or file manager.
yes there are many different options to load ur files to ur memory stick; by using a usb card reader (the best idea so you could connect it to any computer with a usb port), via bluetooth, or the usb dongle that came with the phone.
yes the standby clock seems to be glitched on this firmware with the phone, i called sony and they said this should be fixed when an update comes out.
a nice thing is that you can use the remote update service on the phone itself and update thru the phone without a need for a computer or that tricky sony update service online.
i read somewhere that this phone will be out for cingular in the 3rd quarter, but is widely available sim free online.
i have not gotten any dropped calls like i had with my previous phone, try calling sony ericsson about it, and have them replace it if it is defective, it comes with a 1 year warranty.
to joshy d,
the difference is the look, the applications button along with the walkman button, edge support, and a replacement of the joystick with a control pad (which should last longer),
all minor differences
yes you can hear the other person clearly, and they can hear you even clearer, this phone is great with sound quality, with or without the headset, just make sure ur buddy on the other line is speaking clearly in the first place.
and the only options to set a lock code is for ur sim card, phone lock at startup, or code memos (personal notes with a lock code), then there's the keypad lock that unlocks by pressing the * and right select key.
to more sense than more sense,
this phone does play mpeg4, and various videos formats, but it just depends on the frequency and resolution. ive been enjoying music videos in mpeg4 format on this phone..
hopefully the standby clock gets fixed soon.
and in the contact's infos, you have the option to set 4 numbers PER contact; mobile, home, work, and other, as well as email and web address, picture ringtone and voice command, work and home address,info and birthdy.
to winston, you can set an mp3 as a ringtone by either finding the mp3 in file manager and pressing MORE, USE AS, RINGTONE; or selecting a contact in ur list and pressing MORE, EDIT CONTACT, go to the picture/ringtone tab (middle 3rd out of 5 tabs) and select add ringtone.
ur mp3s must be in the memory stick/mp3 or
memorystick\mssemc\mediafiles\audio folder directories
The result of Sony Ericsson is always great towards me coz if u want to do good u have to be good
convert the media files to 3GP format with the converter name SUPER(c) ok so search SUPER that convertor really shock me when i use it first time coz the video playback is just the like the DVD come on TV. so search the site and have a Nice DAy.
Hey guys, is it possible to do file tansfers with this phone on a powerbook G4? I really wanna get this phone but i wanna make sure that i can get my files over from my itunes.
Can anyone tell me how to make a songs from the walkman player that is saved on your memory stick be a ringtone? They have the preset ringtones.
I just got this phone a few days ago and I noticed that the sleep mode clock which also showed if you had a missed call does not come up any longer. The screen just goes pitch black. The 750 had this feature, can this be setup or has it been completely removed?
WOW what a wicked phone!! I had a few probs getting this phone with 02 online as an upgrade, they kept telling me that it's not released yet, call back, and when i did call back, they said the same thing again. I walked into an 02 store on Sat just to see if they had it in and they did, i asked for the phone number for 02 online upgrade so i could call them straight away, but the store offered to upgrade it for me, 10 min later i walked out of 02 bromley with a spanking 810i. I've had nokia for many years and thought i couldn't handle a different make with fuction buttions all over the place, but this phone is fantastic!! Easy to use! Looks and feels great!! Walkman/radio/camera!! Get this phone!!
Hi have this phone and its probaly the best phone i have except for one problem i have just changed to t-mobile and i have been getting like 5-10 dropped calls a day when im driving around. I switched back to my slvr and i dont get ne dropped calls, does anyone else have this problem i really love this phone........i duno if its just mine thats having this problem or everyone else. email me n let me know
Has any successfully uploaded an MP4 video onto a memory stick and played it thru this phone..??
I cant seem to get it to work right. No matter how i save this mp4 video on this memory stick, the phone wont see it.
and common sense man i was asking if cingular is going to have it know it all
wats the differnce beetween thw w8ooi and the w810i cause i cant see that much difference\
Have jus called O2 again, and they now tell me to call back next week?!?!?!
Aparently it was in today but sold out! I argued with them about this because we dont get to know exactly when the phone is available and the fact that it cannot be pre-ordered.
They could tell I am not very happy so have said they will give me this months bill for free and said they will now call me when the phone is in, however i will persist to call as i think this is the only way to get hold of this on an O2 upgrade.
It really is annoying how dis-organised they are and they need to sort it out.
just got the phone today as an upgrade at the o2 shop at the cost of nothing!!! well chuffed
ken2.5: will the HBH-DS970 work on the W810 as it uses bluetooth v2.0 while the W810 is v1.2?
hey ppl.....can any owner of this phone tell me......when your MAKING or ACCEPTING calls...can you HEAR the voice of the other person(s) CLEARLY and LOUD enough enuff to not strain your ears to hear what there saying??? i've been having this problem with my last 2 nokia phones(6101 and 6230)!!! thanx!!!
also.....does this phone have SECURITY LOCKING FEATURES to lock the phones applications like the "motorola phones"??? (eg. phonebook, messages, settings etc.)
Rup: $500 including overnight shipping is an awesome deal. You should really enjoy it. Tell us how you like it!
beto: NO need at all to upgrade your w800. If you bought it and have no need for a new cell phone, why buy another one that pretty much has 90% of the same features as your old one?
