This phone is freaking sucky, i've had it for almost a year, and all it does is hang and switch off, bloody annoying. i've got no choice but to take it cos my dad just wouldnt buy me a new one, but things started to get worse. uploading becomes a nightmare, all my photos start to dissapear suddenly and it pissed me of, oh this stupid bloody terrible phone! ;(
This phone would be really awesome if it wasn't for that restart and hanging problem...

hi there can u answer regarding the price for this fone if youlle gonna buy it on the market? thanks
Hi, i had this fone for about 4 months.. then i started to freeze up and turn itself off when i was on a call. The sometimes some of the menu's didnt work.
I returned it to place of purchase and they sent it for testing... it turns out its a known fault with this model of fone and they replaced it with a better model. Ive got the Sony ericsson w595. it works like a dream. so much better then the crappie w890
hello, can anyone help me?
i tried to update my phone using the usb port, but it just wouldn't work.
there's a stage where it says to continue pressing .. however i pressed it for like 5 mins but nothing happened. it just wouldn't move on to the next step.
really want to update my phone. someone help pls? thanks in advance!!
am currently use this model, i realy like. More applications, themes and wallpapers can be downloaded at www.zedge.net
Did you know that in Saudi Arabia, Sony Ericsson was now the no.1. And the other leave behind.
Does any body know if W890 (or any brand of phone)
has feature to switch off music player on a set time.
W950i and 960i has got it.
As dissapointed as i was, i realy love this phone.
Is there a Website where i can download software for it so that i can start using it?
Please help me...
my phone falled down to wet area when i sent it for repair they said un repairable

SONY walkman sounds much much better than ipod ,i mean any ipod .i want music pla... moreIt's better using playlists and having the album art support using the software instead of using the drag n drop method, which I perform also!
But I usually drag n drop the files AFTER I imported them into iTunes after I've tagged the files with the album art!
Too bad SE's Media software, now updated to MediaGo, still S-cks!! SE never can make good media software for their phones!!
Slash, 23 Jun 2009firmware update - HELP !!!
i am having problems updating my firmware.
i have the phone abo... moreDownload the NEW Update software (check out the newer models like the W995's software section). It's much better than the previous version which was Cr-p!!
Still have my w890 and upgraded it and it works fine though now it's my backup phone as I've switched over to the W995!
Weird how many people are complaining about the phone now especially how it restarts itself! Never had that problem with mine(KNOCK ON WOOD)!
It's a good phone with good reception, depending on the call area) and the media player works fine!
Just a tad small and the camera S-cks! No AF/Flash so shots generally came out blurry! Use a dedicated digital camera so don't care anymore! It's not meant to be a camera phone anyway!
The w890 is now replaced by the W705 which is a slider phone but the camera still isn't good, according to various online reviews! It is a Walkman phone!
i used this phone for 4 months, this phone really good.. before i updated software, this phone always restart. but after that it's ok to use this....
when use camera just don't use camera shutter, just d-pad to avoid blur when u take a picture.
After 9 months of usage, these are the major issues plaguing the phone
- Photos are very prone to shaking, where even slight movement makes the photos blurry, thus rendering it almost useless.
- Frequent errors at certain memory points used to store SMS messages. Deleting these messages in bulk results in instant reboot, or complete crash with a red light (recovery by removing battery)
- Occasional crashes on answering calls.
- Music skips or stalls while playing halfway.
I don't recommend this phone unless you like the slim look and feel, which was what caught my attention in the first place.
i had a long desire to use sonyericsson and my first set is this.my i m now bored to use this set. it hangs several times in a day. i personally discourage the user to use this set.
I personally would tell anybody to take this phone, its a very good phone, if it give software problems. They give you a new one. And there's not much with problems.. Sony ericsson rule.
