every phone i had was broken after max. 2 months, but this phone worked whole year.. I didn't have any problems with it.. IT'S SO DAMN GOOOOOOD!
For the first time in 4 years, I managed to update my phone for SE Updat Centre and downloaded 32Mb of data. Phone now working great and it accepts my 4Gb Pro Duo card. Before it would fail to read it after about 5 mins. Still a great phone!
Have bought a new Nokia N96 (yeah it's old but a genuine Nokia and brand new with 2yr warantee) so it will be my first Nokia in 6 years. I can't use a touchscreen with my job as I can only use 1 hand whilst I work with my other so a regular phone with keypads is my only option Most of the new phones are therefore useless to me. I will still keep my 850i as a backup phone 'cos its so reliable!
Hi ma W850i have a problem when i switch the camera on its says another application is runnin so i need 2 close it but it never works
N when i insert the memory card it does not detect anything please helpme.
its keypad is very noisy.. thats all.. but i have no problems at all.. :))
I had this phone for more than 3 years, and here's what I think of it :
phone is well built, I have dropped it several times, on different kind of floors, sometimes while it was slided out even, and all what I suffer is sometimes i receive a message stating that SIM Card not in place.
So to resolve this, I had to open the back cover and slide back the SIM card.
Recently, I discovered that my phone dial numbers by ITSELF!!! I find this quite normal, bearing in mind the few times I dropped this mobile.
The Track ID feature is quite handy, I downloaded more than 40 songs using that feature "Using my PC"
Conclusion : the SE W850 is absolutely fun to have, but now I'm thinking seriously into getting the Nokia C3 type and touch, As I'm suffering V.Bad call quality from the SE W850
John, 29 Sep 20102 days ago, my phone started showing blank white display intermittently.
Has any of you expe... moreHi Jon.
As the others have said, the ribbon most likely getting buggered. I have kept my phone open all the time by using rubber bands, was thinking of super gluing it open, but it can be fixed. Was quoted a fair price by a backdoor repairer, but I will live with it for the time being.
My charging port is also kept on the phone with a rubber band, but it's been charged about 3000 times. Fault is with the charger.
My phone doesn't read some memory cards (duo pro, especially 4Gig)and have never been able to connect to internet as a modem. Don't know why computer (XP) doesn't recognise it. It's never really bothered me though. Don't know if there is an update on the web to accept 4Gig cards.

I've just started using this phone. It belonged to my brother previously. It is easily 3 years old. But tell you guys what, this phone is GOOD. I was using a Nokia prior to this but I'm beginning to like Sony ericsson phones because of w850i. It has an animated screen display. User friendly. Great features. I like how it slides to reveal the keypad. I have not encountered any problems so far. I think i'll be using this phone for much longer than I expected.
John, 29 Sep 20102 days ago, my phone started showing blank white display intermittently. Has any of you expe... morei hv encountered such problem before. normally its a problem of the sliding strip... hopefully after changing the strip your problem will be resoved ...
2 days ago, my phone started showing blank white display intermittently.
Has any of you experienced the same problem with this phone?
It has been working fine all this while - just happened so suddenly.
I m using w850 since last 4 years and not ready to loose it ever, because i have not faced any problem in it so far.Although direction key is cracked but it doesn't interrupt any of its functions.Its sound plus battery is still extraordinary, i think.As i didn't try any new version because 850 is doing satisfactory job so far, what i need.Yes some times i miss EDGE facility in w850
its a good phone
im still using it
its 4 years old now
sound quality superb
keypad is super ergonomic for messaging
i love the orange light blinking when playing music
its craking at the direction keypad, but still can use it
2 times repair, the ribbon that connect wires from downslide to upper slide is broken..
