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) :-(
hey w810i, i have no problems transfering 2mp pics into my computer. i just copy and pasted from "file transfer manager", well it's under jpeg format. O_o the mxe-60 is a nice accesory :)
this fone doesnt have problems transferring songs as the disc2phone (supplied software) converts the songs to different bitrate (depends if u want to) or u can transfer the songs as they are saved on ur computer.
hope this helps
Hey Chanmel, this W810i does not have a flash. Althought this site says its has a flash, its not. Its just a plain old light. If u want a flash you must buy the MXE-60 accessory. That is an external flash module that you hook up to the phone.
Take a 2mp picture and upload it to your computer via bluetooth or data cable and see if it stays at 2mp or if it drops to VGA...
The reason why I told u that the W810i took micro SD card is because you didnt take the time to look at the specs of this phone. You could have looked here on gsmarena or sony ericsson website and found out that both the W810i and PSP take the same memory stick, but since you didnt bother to take the time to do some reading, I posted you with the wrong answer so that you would wake up to stop asking ignorant questions. And this goes for all you guys that keep asking these rediculous questions regarding specs on this phone... try reading the specs 1st and maybe you will find your answer. And to those that can spell or use proper words with proper punctuation... get off this forum... Your wasting our time
ordered from plemix for $512 plus tax and should be here tomorrow. AVAILABLE sim free on their site so go get it! i have a k750 which broke down after too many drops and tosses so im getting this, ill be back to compare!
I spoke to o2 today and they said i'm unable to order the phone until next monday/tuesday.. if it gets pushed back anymore i will go nuts
quick non-biased review of the w810i from me.
-phone functionality- 8
-phone design- 9.5
-performance- only had it for an hour- 7
confusing controls... haven't even figured out how to have the camera "flash" when i take a picture. the best i could do was leave the flashlight on and take a pic. picture quality in the dark was very bad. autofocus feature was very disappointing. the sound is excellent. the features were O.K. I uploaded all of my songs into the little 512mb card in a matter of a few minutes via usb 2.0. the bluetooth functions perfectly for 1.2.
this phone totally looks great, feels great, and doesn't weight much. it is suprisingly small, about the size of a credit card... it's also quite thin, maybe the size of the average middle-finger nail. the buttons feel great; im a proficient texter, so this was a big plus, apart from my old SE, nokia, and moto, where the buttons were all either too hard to push in, too small, or just plain uncomfortable. these buttons actually have a good feel, and pushes in without a fuss.
somewhat annoyed at trying to figure out all of the features.
great phone, probably better than most phones out there ATM. Don't expect too much from the camera though... worth the buy? Yes. especially if you want a phone with a good mp3 player.
Why are people saying that the memory card used by this fone is the Micro SD card?
It is not, if look look both on here and sonyericsson.co.uk you will see that it accepts
Memory Stick PRO Duo™
So therefore it is the same memory used as the PSP.
2 people have now said that it uses Micro SD, look at the spec of the fone before posting!!
Its limited to 100 songs due to the internal memory limits. If u want more, you will have to get a micro sd stick to store more mp3's.
Right, my turn for asking a retarded question then methinks! I've got the Motorola ROKR at the moment, thought iTunes would make it the best option, obviously I was wrong! It only accepts mp3's of certain bitrates which is a real pain and has a limited number of mp3 files (100) which the library can handle. Can anyone who knows about the w810i or just has the w800 tell me whether I'm likely to have either of these problems with this phone? Cheers, Steve.
No, the psp uses memory stick duo pro's while the W810i uses SD memory cards. Please read the specs on this site or SE direct before posting ignorant questions
