when you charge ur fone for da 1st time, the battery should be charge at least 12 hrs in order to maximize it's performance.
i have this phone 1month and im having a probleme i cant open a folder for my music on my memory card ,it was working when i just got the phone but now it does not want and i cant receive anything via bluethooth
buy the W850i... has radio and bigger screen.
w880i is too small, susceptible to damage IMO

I STRONGLY AGREE wid u anonymous!!!heheh maybe they bought their w850i cheap or maybe a 2nd handed fone.hahahaha
The W850 is a QUALITY phone. Everything about it is brilliant. had mine for 4 month and not a problem with it. No cracks, No funny noises. What you other people are on about , I have no idea. I guess you must have bought cheap.
To the people who only has bad to say about the w850 get a life i've had the phone for many months and haven't had any problems so i dont think you guys no how to work the phone i work for a cell shop we haven't had any complaints about the phone,so if you dont have anything gud to say don't say anything
am about to get this phone
i have now nokia 6280 and its kinda good but am looking for better phone
so does any1 knows if its worth it?
also another question
is there any difference between w850 and w850i?
W850 great fone The vibration strength is pretty sufficient to do its job. You can set the handset to answer your incoming call automatically when you open the slider, but the strangest of it all is that closing it up doesn't end the call. The only reason for that that we could think of is that the Sony Ericsson engineers didn't want the automatic feature to prevent you talking with the phone closed. The same holds true for the automatic key lock. It engages every time you close the slider as long as you close it from standby view. If you happen to close it while you are somewhere in the menu, the key lock doesn't work at all.
When it comes to the real eye catcher, that most positively must be the large 2" TFT display capable of displaying 262K colors in a QVGA resolution. The colors are vivid and pleasant. The contrast is nice, too. Thanks to the available light sensor, the display brightness varies according to the available ambient light and respectively gets boosted in bright daylight and gets dimmed in the dark. The only flaw that we might find with the display is that it is a magnet for fingerprints. When it comes to using it under direct sunlight, it scores just the same as K800 - pretty legible, but we've seen better. In fact, currently, maybe Nokia makes the most successful legibility-under-sun-proof displays. But that's just our opinion. There is no way to test that objectively. Speaking of legibility, we've seen a lot worse TFT displays too, so the Sony Ericsson ones score somewhere in the middle.
A flashy keypad
The keypad features some really nice features that are worth mentioning along with some really bad solutions. If you've ever wondered what exactly the orange plastic thing just below the display is for, the answer is that in fact it is a shortcut key for starting the Walkman music player. Just above it, right at the display base, there is a metallic edge, on which you can rest your thumb when trying to open or close the slider. Undoubtedly, when doing this you are almost prone to start the music player accidentally. But you can get used to this in the course of time.
On both sides of the Walkman key there are a couple of round context keys, which are rather comfortable to work with. Below the Walkman key, you can see the unusual navigation pad and four other keys - the Back key, the Web browser key, the correction C key and finally, the Activity menu key.
