I know exactly how you feel as I am trying to do the very same thing, upgrade from my D500.
I do not understand why the sales team would be able to make orders but not the upgrade team, surely they should be looking after current customers as well as new customers?!?
just got the phone today, very intuitive and similar to the k750i i had, the difference being this is a walkman player with a better walkman player showing artist/album/song titles more organized and allowing you to browse thru playlists and more without inturrupting the playback. another difference being the light sensor which adjusts the backlight to the surrounding lighting conditions. also i noticed one feature that is missing is the standby clock, they took that out! so now there is just a blank screen when the phone goes into standby which is pretty lame, i hope firmware updates add this back. the center control keypad is small and takes some getting used to to navigate, but is better than the joystick (which i found to break down in my k750i after a year's use), so that is an improvement. the phone has a great smooth feel with a solid construction without any gaps. the numerical buttons feel good when pressed (i must admit better than the k750i because these buttons are spaced apart). phone is great though pricey, but is a great camera, walkman, cellular, and organizer.
Just tried ordering this phone on o2 online i got to the bit where ya put ur card details in and pressed continue but then it said you have been timed out of o2 shop but i dunno if my order has gone through anyone got any ideas.
I just called O2 and they have told me to call back on 4TH April!!! This is shocking! How come people can order online and i can't over the phone? All i want is an upgrade to my D500 !!!
I orderd this fone off 02 on thurz n have jst rang o2 to see where it was. Have been told that the fone will be deliverd either 2morow or friday so if u have orderd off the website u should get the fone soon :-D
My brother has done this same thing with his V551, SE 710 and now working on his current nokia 6270. Basically he had to call cingular to activate the service, then download the software onto his computer. This software is just a program that u open up that allows u to gain internet access thru the cell phone. Now to get it from the cell phone to the computer he used bluetooth. He purchased a bluetooth usb dongle that allows the cell phone to transfer pics to the computer. So basically what happens is that the cell phone will download the internet data and then transmit it to the computer via bluetooth. Its not very fast, its like dial up speed ~56k...But you must pay for this data service thru your provider. We did it up NYC when we had no internet access at the place we were at. Hope this helps..
hey ppl....i've asked this question already and got an answer but the answer i got wasn't good enuff, HAS ANYONE used the phone(W810) to try and get INTERNET CONNECTION to there DESTOP/LAPTOP and got through with it SUCCESSFULLY???........if so plz tell me!!!! thanx again
You guys need to drop O2 and look somewhere else. I just went to ebay and found 17 different W810i phone's for sale. And 4 of those phone's are from a company that i have personally purchased phone's from b4 so i know they are trust worthy. There are so many other companies out there that have these phone's already.
You guys need to stop being lazy and search the web and drop that 02 place cause they are giving u the run-around. Now unless u like to get pist and love hearing their excuses then go ahead and call them. The cheapest i have seen is $464 for this phone plus shipping. Some of these companies out there are lowering the price of the phone to trick u in thinking that u are getting it for that cheap, but in tern they are jacking up the shipping price way too high. I know for a fact that here in the USA if u ship a cell phone from one side of the country to another via UPS ground or fed ex ground it should Not cost more than $9 period. I know cause i have done it. And most of these places are charging up to $50 for shipping to compensate for the "low" phone price... Open your eyes and read...
Again, u crying babies need to drop O2 and go somewhere else....
O2 can't help this - it is when Sony deliver it for them !!!
Nobody else has it out - and if they do it won't have the correct settings in it !!!
Im sure this will a sutible upgrade to my now ageing T68i. Simple question is, Whats the build qulity on the SE phones now adays are they as good as the old models?? My T68i has survived everything from being Dropped to being submerged in water for nearly 2 hours and it still works like the day I got it. Will the W810i survive this sort of treatment??
Iv'e just been told 4 april now, its getting stupid now, everytime i call its a different, later date.
It no longer says it will take 5-7 days so might aswell order it off o2 online then you will get the phone quicker lol
jon, how did u order your phone with o2? via the website? or telephone? if online then it states that it will take 5-7 days for delivery.. thats because just like over the phone and in stores, its been pushed back. im gonna leave it til monday before i try calling again.
now really, what has this phone better than w800?
design is better, ok, but pay ~200$ more for design? ehm...
I work at a high street phone dealership, and i really want this phone, so i emailed our logistics dept. Apparently we will be getting the vodafone version wk starting the 3rd of april, the orand model, week starting 10th of april, and the generic model week starting the 17th of april.
Which is a bummer as i want the handset on t-mobile, so i'll have to wait untill 17th of april to get it!!!
Why did that guy ask how much they cost, only 3 comments up from a person saying the got it for $512? And why would you pay £500 for a phone you would get for free on a pay monthly contract? Its such a waste of money!
I am getting really fed up with O2 constantly delaying this phone. I been calling every week for last 3 weeks and each time i am told a new release date. Just got off phone and was told to call back Monday next week. I really want this phone. Might just give up and go get the 6280 from other network!
o2 have pushed this model back again till late this week (30th/31st March) :-(
