Hi just want to say that A phone is like a woman, if you treat it with care it will do all it possibly can for you...
if you bought a 3mp cam phone from Sony, and it is not 3mp as "w890i" stated, then it must be an asian replica....
i have never experienced problems with Sony Ericsson phones unlike the infamous "Anonymous", every Sony Ericsson model has the illusive "Anonymous" with degradory remarks about the model....he is either rich or not so intelligent, because he keeps buying sony ericssons which are or seem to be beyond his comprehension....
its simple...if you are not a sony person, use your money for something else to fill the void in your life. ie a camera, ipod, get a gps and radio and an old phone with no features...then you may be happy
w890, 09 Nov 2009Personal opinion, no offense. This phone is full of problems, I DO NOT recommend everyone to ... moreI've had this phone for like 14 months and it's still working great although I don't really take care of it. I don't know what you people are talking about!!
this is d best phone ve used,i ve been using it for 14month without any problem.i love it
Personal opinion, no offense.
This phone is full of problems, I DO NOT recommend everyone to buy it. I own it within 6 month and now I decided to sell it, price is going down too fast, too.
1. Camera not 3.2
2. Always reboot
3. Always off phone automatically and need to take out the battery to reset, if not it just will keep remain at the "starting" on the phone, with the red light at the back
4. Battery life LOW
5. Phone easily hot when talking phone for longer time
6. The button will scratch and the words on it will disappear
7. Always lag and hang time to time
8. Sometimes the pop-up will remain although you closed it(e.g. messages/call pop up)
In conclusion, I DO NOT recommend everyone to buy it, I FULLY REGRET to own this phone.
Again, personal opinion, no offense.
r, 06 Nov 2009Take good care of your phone. S o that it wouldn't cause any problems. One thing though, don't... moretnx fo your comment. but I dont have W890. I desided to buy this. infact I'm researching about this phone.
Take good care of your phone. S o that it wouldn't cause any problems. One thing though, don't over use your phone with complicated apps...this would create heavy wear & tear of your phone faster. Experiencing Hang-ups? maybe, you're using too many apps...heavily! Don't pressure your phone. Don't test your phone to the limit. simple * basic apps would mean nice to your phone. It's that simple. Those people complaining for sorts of problems...well, let's just say, you were testing the phone pressuring the phone to the limit.
Hi. somebody said this phone reboot & change theme by itself sometime.
whether this problem solve by update?
(look at the link)
just wanted to know how the restarting problem was solved? im experiencing then same thing
buzz, 21 Sep 2009this is the worst sony ericsson i have ever had. it keeps turning it self off plus the walkman... morelot of ppl seem to have a restarting and hanging problem! for them, u guys shud ckeck the cash memory of the for, may b its loaded up! this fon even uses the memory card as ram memory. ive even found restarting probs but solved it, after a year. . . nothing happend. i play games use opera 5 !
adrian, 03 Oct 2009this phone hangs all the timewat did tat mean ?? hangs all the time ?
sorry .. my english is not good at all
this phone is really good and it contains lots of functions so i urge each and everyone to get one.Just that mine got missing in a car but I am definitely going for another one.
I have had this phone for 18 monthes...Boy am I glad to finally be able to Upgrade!!!
In 18 months, I have actually had FOUR of this phone! They tell me that they havn't had other people complain about the problems I've had...but I find it odd that every phone has the SAME thing happen everytime!
It turns itself off constantly, or the screen goes blue & it vibrates, & to get it to come back you have to press the On/Off button to get it to ''wake up''
Extremely annoying when it happens when your writing a long text message...
The case is SO thin & brittle because of it being made of Aluminium , that if you knock or drop it, theres nothing to absorb the shock, I think this means that it is bound to not last..unless you wrap it in Cotton Wool....
i had this phone for a long time but i gave it to my brother
this phone is good i assure you you should buy it it's chunky and it ccarrys alot of stuff in it
have just posted my concerns regarding this phone.
I received two swap out units of which the first swap out unit's ringtone also didn;t work. When you select the ringtone, it will play, but not when the phone actually rings. Radio also didn;t work on loudspeaker and SMS tone also not
Legend73, 13 Sep 2009I have the same problem with my W890, it just wont ring yet the music functions work perfectly... moreI have just posted my concerns regarding this phone.

Like I said, phone was swapped out.
This phone is crap.
I had the w880 and loved it very much and upgraded to the w890.
From new, out of the box, It says INACTIVE SIM and then switches itself off randomly. Sometimes 5-6 times in a row. During this time the power button doesn't work. Must remove the battery. This happens about 5 times per day and sometimes when it's only lying on the desk. I'm not even using or handling it, then it shuts down.
Software upgrade didn't work. My service provider swapped my phone out with a refurbished 2nd hand unit which did the same. Now with the 2nd swap out, looks like it's fine now.
