I really love this phone. I've only ever had one problem with it when it refused to start up due to a software problem. It was out of warranty and Sony Ericsson still fixed it for free. I'm getting a new phone in June (don't know what yet), but I might just hang on to my W810 until it finally packs up, although I think that day is still very far away.
Some answers: I bearly found it new in three stores in my city (the last ones on shelves) in november '08 and of course 3 diff prices. Bought for 112 Euros. It's an updated version of K750. I think it's worth the money, especialy the fact it has an autofocus camera (most Walkman branded phones today lack)
Once again: "Cybershot" and "Walkman" are marketing brands. A today midrange "Walkman" SE hasn't got autofocus (so, no good for me)
Both have same software, except that the Walkman has an updated media player, and the Cybershot has richer camera interface and autofocus camera (hardware).
By the way: W810 captures better pictures than K550 "Cybershot". W810 is easely tunable , so now (after some modifications) I'm quite satisfied with it. In my opinion its drawbacks are the lack of Java multitasking and slow 2Mp picture processing (viewing,zooming)
This is the best phone I ever owned. All the features are easy to use and pice it take are great. I found this phone for sale on the compusa website for $149.99 and shipping for only $1.99!!!!
I had this phone and i loved it.. I loved it so much that I through it against a wall to prove to someone on how unbreakable it was!! As it turned out I was right however was after an hour searching for it in the dark grass deflected into after hitting the wall! Anyway after that it was never the same again, it kept randomly powering off and I finally after being sent back for repair and to no avail, I decided to retire my trusty friend.. At first I was sure I could buy another one but to my dismay there was none to be found! Sony had stupidly decided to discontinue the W810 in favour of slicker and more trendier updated models. So after much concideration I decided to purchase the W910 being the closest in simularitly and value for price. At first, I loved it.. Everything seemed brighter and freasher. However after a certain amount of use (and no pelting off walls abuse) the phone started to somehow maunaully power itself off.. Jesus F**k Christ! So its either me or possible Sony Ericsson have a wee problem with "fauly i have the phone a year i want to power off manually so you'll buy a new phone from us problem""!!!
Ah well i'm currently back using my old W810 which feels better but still manually powers off now and then!! I'm going to search the interweb to buy the old tank again..
sharon, 30 Apr 2009im seriously extremly depressed at the moment! my W810i got pickpocketed while i was on the bu... morebro what is the real worth of the w810 in the market now a days in used condition and second is this set have a cybershot camera??????

its a rocking phone compare to other, i have like all the feature of this phone, if u dnt belive it then try once
im seriously extremly depressed at the moment! my W810i got pickpocketed while i was on the bus :( and if i had the chance, i really wouldn't mind using the same phone again. no other phone can beat it compared to it's value for money
this phone is truly great, i have it for 2 years already and it's cam is much nicer compare to newer models. i have w910i now and it's cool as well but camera is poor. i think the up to date version of this phone is w902 and w995 will be the upgrade for my w910 =)
i like this fone & i love it its simple but it rocks i like the quality of the sound when ur using the earfone & the camera when ure taking a picture see for ur self too believe it buy this fone now the best!!! syp18 frm cavite
