I have this phone and I really really think it is one of the best phones ever. I thought that I would hate the slide as I had a swivel one before but I am used to it now. I have a 4GB memory stick in mine so I can have music all the time. The battery lasts at least 2 days and I love the FM radio
My BLACK W850's D-PAD CRACKED.....and cracked very BADLY...its a design defect..very hard to operate.slider is loose too

thx bro ... anyone else wanna tell me about there expirience using this phone come on guys i need to make my mind clear before i buy it ...
Hi, Already 6 months since I bought SE W850 on June 07. All just goin fine. Battery is OK, the ring tone is loud. But the vibration is a bit weaker then Nokia. But itís no problem for me, I could feel it when I turn on the silent profile. The casing crack only for the white (Itís happen to all of my friends who own white SE). I'm own the black one and the casing is good as new. For the price, itís worth it. No regret for buying this phone.

Hi Everyone out there!
I just want to know if it is true that this phone lasts for only a year. A phone of such price should not be like this. I will really be disappointed if it true.
great phone but D-PAD WILL CRACK......it will become un-resellable..........plzzz keep this fact in mind before buying.....everything else FLAWLESS and BEST.....can give any phone a run for money.
dani, can your help me!! this handpone, can insert memory card 2GB?? tanks some mach!! send to my mail
I heard rumors saying that this phone will be sold in the USA. Is it true?
your W850i's Memory Card must be Broken then.
if you want it fixed just take it to your local Sony Ericsson Dealer the will be able to fix it
Best of Luck
